Microsoft brings to Xbox One gamers an instant classic in Limbo, which was originally released on XBLA in July of 2010. With the Xbox One release, Limbo has been updated to 1080P and 60FPS. Limbo is a 2D side-scrolling game done only in black and white tones where players control a nameless character in search of his missing sister. Along the way players will come across numerous puzzles requiring some serious trial and error. Don’t fret though, this was one of the intents of the developer and will try your patience more then once.
That said, if you haven’t played Limbo before,where have you been the last four years? Since its initial release, Limbo has been ported to almost every platform. Its unique style and tricky puzzles are something every gamer should experience at least once. A lucky group of day one purchasers of the Xbox One (North America) were gifted codes for Limbo as a thank you.
Unfortunately if you have played Limbo on one of those other platforms, I see no reason to recommend you make another purchase just to experience it in 1080p and 60fps. I went back and played Limbo on the Xbox 360 before playing the Xbox One version and saw no noticeable difference in the graphics. All the controls and puzzles are the exact same on both consoles, which made solving the puzzles very easy removing the best part of originally playing Limbo.
Update: Limbo and Threes! is available now if you go to the individual game pages on xbox.com. If you go here and scroll down just a little you will see both the games listed. They can be purchased and then downloaded to your Xbox One console and be played right away. They are not yet listed in the Xbox Store on the Xbox One as of this writing.

Lots of people loved last year’s Limbo, a visually stunning game praised across the board for it’s graphic stylings. Well, the bros (literally guys, they’re brothers) over at Samsquatch Films enjoyed the style of Limbo so much that they’ve decided to film a movie called The Tide using the same visual effects. Unlike Peter Jackson, they don’t have a ridiculous special effects studio or an army of orcs at their disposal, so they’re going to need a little help. The Bucceri brothers have set up a Kickstarter for the film, where your donations can net you anything from a cellphone wallpaper to a gruesome death in the film. As of this writing there are 16 days and only $284 to go, so head on over to support what could finally be a good movie based on a videogame and let’s all hope Uwe Boll doesn’t hear about this idea. If you’re not easily freaked out by real people with crazy glowing Limbo eyes, check after the break for a video of the developers showing off some of their ideas.
