A few weeks ago, I started playing Super Meat Boy and it’s kept me busy since then. This game will haunt my nightmares for the rest of my days. It is this game that I have learned the true meaning of “platform hell”……and it’s actually a decent video game as well.
Super Meat Boy has a notorious reputation for being a balls hard game. It is well earned reputation but that doesn’t mean the game is bad by any account. The game is difficult but not impossible. This is a game you play if you want to show your friends that you can be good, or if you want to really learn how to get good.
You play as Meat Boy, a wad of meat who has to rescue Bandage Girl, which seems simple if not for the fact that every stage is a sadistic deathtrap. You will soon be ducking and dodging everything imaginable, just to reach the goal and as you progress, it only gets harder and harder. Eventually the early stages will seem like the easiest levels of “Sonic” compared to what happens later on.
But just because a game is hard, does not mean it’s bad. Super Meat Boy is a game that will knock you down and make you like it. It is a game that mocks you at every turn but at the same time, motivates you to continue. This is one of those rare games where no matter how much you die, something just clicks inside of you that makes you want, nay, NEED to beat it. Hard games come out all the time, but only a few actually succeed in this sweet spot like Super Meat Boy, in terms of 2D Platformers anyways. You will find yourself playing and replaying the levels and becoming more determined than ever to beat it. That is one of the best feelings a game can give you.
Sadly, Super Meat Boy lacks the original soundtrack that it had before, due to licensing issues, but the new soundtrack is a very suitable replacement. The visuals look great and the presentation is all around top notch.
If you are a fan of platformers, hard, easy or otherwise, then you owe it to yourself to check out this game.

Nordic Games sent out the following PR email this morning regarding SpellForce 3
This year Nordic Games is going right back to the roots of the SpellForce saga with SpellForce 3, a perfect blend of real-time strategy and role-playing game. SpellForce 3 combines the best of the two genres in the renowned SpellForce universe with a rich, deep backstory. The action takes place prior to the events in “SpellForce: The Order of Dawn”, and this “prequel” immerses players in the lush and luxuriant fantasy world of Eo.
Heroes and Quests Similar to its successful predecessors, players create their hero from scratch and can then develop the hero’s skills during the campaign, complete quests, explore the game world and join forces with up to three characters to form a group of heroes. Organic Growth The map in SpellForce 3 is divided into different sectors. The player’s base won’t grow arbitrarily, but always organically. Concretely, this means that the player can only conquer sectors, which are connected to the base or other, already conquered, sectors. This is important, because there is no “Global Economy”, but the distribution of resources will happen mechanically (resources are being transported via carts). The player can decide which raw materials he wants to collect, distribute and export in each sector and must therefore carefully plan where to build the sectors. Sector Management If, for example, the player defeats all the enemies in a particular sector and the bandit camp is captured, he can establish an outpost in this area. The player can then construct buildings in the sectors, exploit raw materials (wood, stone, food, etc.), transport goods and produce resources to then recruit new fighting units. Each outpost has a set number of workers who can be hired, so a core element of the game is to balance the sector economy and manage the sector to ensure the most efficient deployment of the available workers. Hybrid Gameplay We don’t want to ignore the RPG component and want players to have the best gaming experience possible with SpellForce 3, so the micro management is not as hectic and fast-paced as in many other RTS games. Players can therefore enjoy both gameplay genres (RTS and RPG) in equal measure. SpellForce 3 Features
- RTS/RPG Mix: Unique gameplay combining RTS and Top-Down RPG genres
o RTS: the RTS part focuses on macromanagement (overall strategy, building a base/economy, conquering of zones, managing large groups of units)
o RPG: the RPG part puts emphasis on micromanaging the party of heroes (skills of ALL heroes of the party have assigned keyboard bindings) in battles
- Create & Customize: Assemble your party of heroes and choose between numerous combinations of different skill builds
- Strengthen and Command Your Army: Prepare your troops and fight the mother of all battles. Moreover, players can utilize a wide array of strategic choices (like e.g. terrain, troop formations, visibility, scouting etc.) that would make Sun Tzu proud
- Epic Storyline: Unravel a deep and sophisticated story, eventually leading up to the events that cause the world-changing convocation ritual
- Rich Universe & Lore: Explore the world Eo and discover intrigues, secrets and a lot of loot for your hero
- Extensive Single-Player Campaign: 30+ hours, even more when you manage to discover all the things Grimlore put in the world
Multiplayer: Strong multiplayer component with various modes – Play cooperatively or in versus battles
