TRC: Limbo is one of the most enjoyable and solid XBLA titles I’ve played in a long time.
Next title I'll be purchasing.
Sounds good, but with the shorter length, I hope it comes with a reasonable price point.
Almost like Braid & Winterbottom spliced their DNA.
I heard it's going to be $15. A little much for a short puzzle game, but Braid was the same.
I'm picking it up but yeah the length part sucks. Hopefully there's a bit of replay-ability thanks to Achievements. 360 is doing a good job of delivering games throughout the year which I applaud MS for. This Wednesday I will be in Limbo!
Man, this game looked great at E3. Glad to see that it turned out well. I'll probably pick it up at a later date if/when it hits other platforms.
Sounds great....this will definitely be the next XBLA game I purchase. JOY
Too bad its not on PSN. Oh well, better get to creating on LBP then.
He mentions the achievements being hard. Does anyone know why they are so hard or a general idea of how to achieve them?
Here, take a look at this. http://www.xbox360achieveme... Not only are the achievement descriptions very vague, one of the achievements involves "Complet/e/ing the game in one sitting with five or less deaths. I'd say that'll be pretty difficult.
I know someone who got an early review copy. He said it is really hard and that he died many times. I think he got like 15 achievement points from his first playthrough or something.
I'll be buying this. Unique games like Limbo deserve our unflagging support.
From several sources i've heard this game is 5-6 hours he's just a speed demon. I don't like how the reviewer pointed to that for the reason it didn't get perfect. These kind of games, puzzle platformers, shouldn't be long. I finished Portal in 3.5 hours and felt accomplished, I would have got bored if it was something like 10 hours.
Pick up DeathSpank. I've played it for three days now without finishing it. Probably spent around 10-15 hours or so. And it's been nothing but awesome.
Deathspnak is by far the best $15 I have spent in a long time.Long story humourous conversations the dialogue is awsome and theres so much to do without getting bored.I wish Limbo was coming to the psn myself im starting to like more of these downloadable games more and more as the year goes on.I hope Limbo has a longer story if thats what he is saying.Only time will tell.
Chuk5, Blair Herter previewed this on G4. Said he played two hours and was over 40% complete. But that's not really important if the game is great, and of course not to expensive. For example Flower takes about 4-5 hours to playthrough once with minimal exploration, but you will put an easy 15+ hours into it to collect all the pedals and riddle-like trophies. Also you can get all it's trophies in under a week(anyone get that remark?) So appreciate Limbo for being qwerky and unique. On hard trophies: I bet it's a bitch if one is like, beat every levels(if it is levels, I dunno) without dying
cheating in flower eh? lol turning back the clock for a trophy is wrong :)
I never cheated. It was a suprise for me since I never looked at the trophy list at all.
I recently bought Microsoft points for 2 main reasons: 1. Mass Effect 2 DLC 2. Limbo On July 21st, I will be a very happy person.
uh oh i want limbo on psn 2 :((((
Correction, PSN is in limbo.
A dream within a dream within a dream. (Sorry, couldn't resist. Just watched Inception)
I thought it had, that would open it up for more people.
The only thing disappointing is 3hrs for $15 (1200pts). EDIT: 5-6 it is. And sold. Thanks Chuk5. Also, fuck you disagree phantoms. Heaven forbid an opinion makes you butthurt. Fairy defines butthurt. Heavy Rain has everything to do with this story's claim of 3hrs of gameplay.
Ign says it's 5-6 and so does GI. That seems much more likely.
Because the heavy Rain DLC was longer than that right?
heavy rain dlc was $5 for some and free for those who preordered the game, not to mention 5 endings with 30-45 mins each playthrough....what are you getting at, and how is it related?
u and that xboxallday tard are the only ones that had to mention anything about ps3.this would have been a better post without u gtfo
Ignore him, he's just a silly troll. I caught him months ago posting on another site that Alan Wake was going to blow away anything ever seen on the PS3. He's clearly delusional.
it $15? seems a bit much but no one can deny the production values...this game looks incredibly fun and visually appealing..too bad about the short length though. @above yea $15 is way too much for a 3 hour game..its most likely less.
Finally something on XBOX that I truly envy. Well, enjoy it. Looks awesome.
The price threw me a little, 1200 points..
I don't even know what that means...
One thing I noticed though ... this game has ALOT of spiders? LOL, Arachnophobia anyone? Just need to get some more Live Points. I have two pieces of DLC to get for Splinter Cell: Conviction and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. So I guess I'm going to have to buy 4800 Points instead of my normal 1600. Glad that MSFT making strides with these Arcade games. Between Limbo, Ilomilo, and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and a few others, my Arcade needs will be met for a while.
800msp > 1200msp
1200msp > 800msp
I'll be buying this. When does it come out?
Wednesday the 21st
Awesome,cant wait to play this game,and yes also anticipating ILOMILO that game is just a masterpiece....(clears throat and chanels inner bruce buffer<ITS....TIME!! for microsoft to give us KILLER INSTINCT HD,AND KILLER INSTINCT GOLD HD WHO'S WITH ME!!
the only good PSN game is Fat Princess...the others are mediocre. AND YES I DO OWN A PS3.
Then you're broke and missed Shatter, Everyday Shooter, PixelJunk anything, Wipeout, Echochrome, The Last Guy, Critter Crunch, Joe Danger and countless others.
oh please, 90% of the games on psn are amazing, the other 10% are pretty good.
How about Trine, Soldner X 2, Burn Zombie Burn, Stardust HD, Flower, Digger HD, Flow.
The embargo lifts tomorrow, so either they got special measures OR this is actually illegal.
Yeah, I was wondering that too.
Odds are about 99:1 it's the latter. Pretty annoying when people break embargoes for extra hits.
He posted in the comment section that he got permission to post it early.
I doubt it. I was given an email when I got the code, ALL reviews are embargoed until the 19th at 9am PST.
I agree with ShadyDevil. Got the same email, and it's also worth noting Hydro Thunder is also embargoed till 9AM Pacific the Monday before release, so it's likely this is a Microsoft-enforced embargo, and thus not bendable.
i need some ms points lol. anybody got a spare ms point card please?
Looks interesting. Ill have to look into it.
Whether they had special permission (Which I doubt, as not even IGN has that), I've already reported the site to PlayDead's PR company so they'll confirm and blacklist the site at their discretion.
Now I really want this game. -End statement
3 to 4 hour? I am going to wait a little, see if it comes to pc cheaper or on sale on the live later. There is no way on Earth i buy a 3 to 4 hours game 15€/$.
