Improving on greatness: things to better Xbox LIVE

 

Maybe we’re a little biased here, but we think Xbox LIVE is a great service.

Avatars Don’t Bleed review (XBLIG)

Drawing upon the mechanics and minimalism of games like N+ and the floaty physics of Super Meat Boy, Avatars Don’t Bleed is a running, jumping, wall-clinging, avoid spike-based-deathing platformer.

Alas, appearances often find themselves impaled, repeatedly, on the sharp spike walls of reality.
