Meatwad?

Sounds interesting, I guess?

Oh god, I remember playing this game on Kongregate and getting addicted to the difficulty. It's so incredibly punishing later on. It takes me 15 minutes to finish some of the hell levels.

oh god, the only problem for me is that i can't grab it, as i don't own a wii

It will also be released on the PC.

Looks like another indie hit.

Interesting, might have to look into the PC version.

I only played a few levels, and it was fun, but the controls were... really loose. Still, Ill porbably go back to it later.

From the article linked: "Big game publisher PR reps."

Anyone else remember the days of the id Software crew spouting nonsense left and right, and the always colorful cast of characters rocking the ol' Usenet?

Those days were fun. Those days were honest. Games were fringe, gamers were fringe, Nintendo's press releases consisted of hand-drawn art and demands that you buy it, and EA was proud of the fact that all its devs were "artists" disinterested in profit, while they tried to convince investors that Grand Theft Auto and other M-rated games were destined to be a short-lived fad.

Man, I miss the early 90s. Where'd I put that stupid time machine...?

Gotta love it when an interviewee drops a killer bomb of a quote into your lap, like the crap remark. Golden.

I've heard that they'll try to fix that in the WiiWare/PC version

That's really cool. It's almost like those stories you hear of some shitty band getting really popular on myspace and becoming one hit wonders. Only the difference here is that the people that were discovered are creative and will probably be successful.
