First up is the amazing P.B. Winterbottom which saw its debut on the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 points. Steam users can obtain the magic of a pie pilfering portly gentlemen and his paradox portals for only $4.99, cheaper than picking it up on 360. Best of all, it has achievements and if you think we didn’t gush over it enough in the episode, you can check out Overlord Ror’s review of the game right here.
Aside from Winterbottom, the indie section on Steam has been quite busy lately, with several releases from the Blitz1Up group. The most notable of these is KrissX which is a fun little game that saw its release on 360 first. Aside from KrissX, you can also find Fluttabyes and Mole Control available as well. All three of these titles start at $4.99 which means if you love puzzling casual games, you should definitely download the demos and check them out.
For the fans of fast paced action and massive robots, Plain Sight and Booster Trooper are both available. Both retail for only $9.99 and have pretty interesting gameplay. Think of Plain Sight as robot ninjas fighting before mass suicide, and Booster Trooper as an indie version of Bionic Commando. The games each have their own niche, but you should definitely check them out if you enjoy side scrolling shooters or third person attack shooters. Continued on 2G1G website...
