SDCC: Shadow Complex: Lots of game for a little bit of money


2:00 PM on 07.25.2009



When we heard about a new Metroidvania-style XBLA game coming from Epic Games and Chair, our ears perked up. It's been awhile since we've had a good side-scrolling adventure game, hasn't it?

Chair's Donald Mustard met with us to tell us a bit about his latest title, Shadow Complex, and it was there that we discovered that this great-looking, robust platformer would only be 1200 Microsoft Points. Really? This game looks to be worth $20 or more, as far as I'm concerned. Hats off to them for the generous price.

We also chatted about speed runs and advanced weaponry, as you'll see in our video below. The most interesting weapon we saw was a foam gun, which lets you totally blanket an enemy in quick-hardening foam. Haven't you always wanted to buy one of those cans of foam and shoot it at someone? It's like that. Or you could use it to reach previously unreachable platorms by shooting a step stool for yourself. Crazy stuff. We can't wait to give it a try.

Get your knives out: A list of the best pointy objects in the business

Knives in games are weird. They're either way too weak and flimsy to be any fun (the weapon of last resort you mess around with for a few moments to delay dying or before you restart from your last, hopefully ammo-rich, save)...more

Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II

A lot of you told me that you really liked Samus and Sagat episode one. Thank you so much! Even more of you told me that you almost didn't watch the show at all because you thought it was a cartoon. Sorry about that! To be 1...more
