I dunno about you guys, but I'm REALLY digging some of the "arcade" games being released through these networks. I just finished BRAID, which was awesome and really difficult but satisfying. Following that I picked up LIMBO and the Dishwasher: Vampire Smile.
LIMBO a lot of you know, it's dark, drab, but very stylish for a platforming puzzle game. It just has a nice bleak feel to it, which is such a weird description, but if you've played it, you'd agree. The totally unforeseen deaths are never frustrating, but I actually find them humorous. Walking along, walking along, BEAR TRAP! DEAD. Love it.
The Dishwasher is a completely different beast. It's brutally violent, it's fluid, and very comic book like. It's so simple, but so complex at the same time. Seriously, killer game, but kinda fucked up.
Last night I was cruising GameSpot and saw a review for Outland, by Ubisoft. I read the review and immediately downloaded the game. I gotta say, this is the type of action platformer that just WORKS. It's quick, stylish, has a dash of IKARUGA (the black/white shifting), has the flow and feel of how you'd like a 2D Prince of Persia to play. If you have 800 Creds for XBLA, GET IT.
So those are the games I've been playing, what're you guys playing or diggin?
