Super Meat Port
I think we, as an industry, have given Super Meat Boy a little too much credit. At its best, the game's worlds consist of tightly designed levels that carefully build upon each other, tutorializing through extensive tria...
'Wii haven't forgotten about U'
Super Meat Boy made its way to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita today, but those might not be the last platforms it hits more than five years after its initial release. Team Meat still has its eyes on a Nintendo console.

'Meat Boy and meet boy' -Steven Hansen
I'm torn on Super Meat Boy at this point in my life. On the one hand, it probably controls better with a PlayStation 4 d-pad than it ever did on the Xbox 360. On the other hand, I already went all the way through it when I wa...
Things get weird (awesome)
I recently caught up with Edmund McMillen of Team Meat, who is working with frequent collaborator James Id on Fingered, a small project that's launching next week.
We ended up talking about Isaac, what Team Meat is up to currently, future timelines for existing and potential projects, and a whole lot more.
Remember back when Vin Diesel wouldn't do sequels and we got xXx: State of the Union starring Ice Cube and the worst Fast and Furious movie? But then Riddick happened and, obviously, Diesel returned to the Fast and Furious fr...

Zen distilled stories
This week I was tempted to do all Bloodborne all the time, because we had so many Bloodborne stories go up that got a ton of attention. Instead, I collected them all into one little Bloodball and turned the abundance in...

Look, I hate these posts as much as the next guy, alright? Kids. Yuck. Some people devote their lives to raising these little piles of germs with suspect motor skills. Even my dumb parents were foolish enough to fall into th...

Coming to PC and mobile, not just an endless runner
[Update: Edmund McMillen wrote a blog post to explain that Super Meat Boy Forever uses auto run, but is not an endless runner. So it's more like Bit.Trip Runner than anything. Though there is an endless mode with da...

Team Meat trolls some guy for nearly 50 minutes
It's hard to imagine what, exactly, a Super Meat Boy movie would look like -- but I'll go out on a limb and say it's probably for the best that such an adaptation never happens.

He HAS got super meat!
Tonetta, the greatest living human, has finally done a song with enough of a connection to videogames to let me get away with posting it as "news." The criminally underappreciated singer/songwriter has produced a song called Super Meat Boy #2. It is your new fantasy.
Sit back, relax, and if you're not yet familiar with this wonderful man ... prepare your soul for entry.
