Indies in Due Time: Easter Special – April 8, 2012
April 8, 2012 3 Comments
Happy Easter, and surprise! Indie Gamer Chick and Brian are here with some new XBLIG trailers for your consumption. Hit it!
Seal Team 12
Kairi: It’s by Social Loner Studios, the guys who did Bird Assassin.
Brian: I loved that game.
Kairi: You scare me. Well, it looks like a TwickS version of an old school scrolling-shooter like Ikari Warriors or Commando.
Brian: Looks neat. Like the graphics, variety of weapons, co-op.
Kairi: I hate playing co-op shooters with you. You always take the good weapons.
Brian: And you always kill me and take them for yourself. You know, you could just be lady-like about it and call “dibs.”
Kairi: Calling dibs isn’t lady-like. It’s child-like.
Brian: And killing someone to get what you want isn’t?
Kairi: No, that’s pretty much as adult as it gets.
Kairi: Well, it’s a punisher, obviously.
Brian: Yea, but a punisher starring a ball.
Kairi: Oh, well then it’s totally original I guess.
Brian: You can be snotty at times.
Kairi: Hey, I’m open to the possibility of every game being good. This one too. Special abilities like sticking to walls. Neato, I guess.
Brian: Feel the enthusiasm.
Boot Hill Heroes
Kairi: Coming soon “with your help.” Sigh, this Kickstarter thing has really gotten out of hand.
Brian: I like the way it the screens burns into the battle, Bonanza style.
Kairi: Is that Bonanza?
Brian: I think so.
Kairi: It looks kind of like Earthbound. The trailer was actually pretty boring. I didn’t get a feel for the game’s personality. Is it serious? Is it a comedy?
Brian: Yea, hard to tell.
Kairi: Well, this is just fucked up.
Brian: Tee hee.
Kairi: You can’t really get a feel for what kind of game it is.
Brian: It says “Action-RPG.”
Kairi: I do like the idea, I guess.
Brian: That’s because people call you a glorified troll.
Kairi: Only when I talk about Sega.
Brian: Sonic The Hedgehog.
Kairi: Most overrated piece of shit game series ever.
Brian: Troll Rave!
Kairi: Super Meat Boy meets Little Shop of Horrors.
Brian: Feed me, Seymour!
Kairi: Don’t do that.
Kairi: Looks like any other Super Meat Boy wannabe. They can be good, but it comes down to one thing: control. You have to completely forget you’re holding a controller for these games to work. Without that quality, you might as well not even bother.
Brian: If you forget you’re holding a controller, wouldn’t that mean your character wouldn’t move?
Kairi: I hate you sometimes.
Kairi: Jeremy Clarkson’s wet dream.
Brian: Check this out.
Kairi: Did he just fire a nuke?
Brian: He did.
Kairi: Car models are okay, but there’s something weird about the graphics.
Brian: What is it?
Kairi: I dunno. It almost looks like one of those fake video games they make for television shows, doesn’t it?
Brian: -laughs- I can kind of see that.
Kairi: .. Dammmmmn.
Brian: You said it.
