Finally had time to beat the game last night. Very cool game with a cool ending! So many Mario references in it!

I give it two thumbs up. I think I will pass on the papercrafts (Tim is adorable, btw) Too many games require my time!

How many STARS do you have? That's right STARS!!!

I collected a star in this game, which was off the screen. I went to a certain place, hopped up, the screen moved and there was some extra stuff up there...including a star. Now, the constellation in front of the house has a shiny star and seven more not so shiny stars. This is just above a garage, so I wonder if getting all eight hidden stars makes the garage door open. I wonder what is in there????

Considering the game mentions nothing about this or any achievements related to it, I find it very interesting....and great.

I'm on level 4 now too and my mind is tripping with these concepts. Walk forward to progress time and walk backward to rewind time! Wow that's nuts.

I also enjoy the tribute paid to games like Mario and Donkey Kong. Gotta love it.

What a fun, interesting and challenging Game! (Sorry I had to leave in a rush, Ryan, my wifey was calling)

The puzzles are all able to be done in their own worlds with no extra power ups, but it is really rewarding once you figure out all the little "Keys" to solving the puzzle. I love that you can bend time, at first I was like "THIS BE THE CHEATS(EXCLAMATION POINT2THEMAX)" then I was like "But this takes away SOOOOOOOOO Much of my fustration (Rewind Xtreme exclamation point)". So yeah, it's a very cool feature.

I've completed both puzzles in Words 2&3, and World 4 is a monster so far. As a piece of advise, if you can't figure it out, don't be afraid to skip it and collect what you can at the time. Also, when you get stuck, keep looking, there are some things that look non-chalant that are the "Key" to beating that particular puzzle.

Also, the Intro Books are cool! I love how they tell a piece of Tim's story to introduce new concepts to the Next World. World 3's "Tim had to figure out a way to become Non-manipulable" and then you play with the non-time bendy features that glow in green. World 4's pretty cool too.

Can't wait to play after work! Hope you guys are enjoying it as much as me!

lol lol

This game is getting amazing reviews. It is now tied at 90% on metacritic with Geometry Wars 2. Both amazing games. I consider this a triumph for XBLA, considering recent retail games aren't even rating this high.

After I let the game sit over night, my mind is drawn back into some of the profound concepts. Like the part in the opening story where it talks about being rewarded for your learning from your mistakes instead of punished. I guess that is why you don't really die in this game, but learn from what you did wrong. Deep.

I admit that the price is a little high, but I'm now starting to think it is worth the cost of admission. However, considering Psychonauts cost the same....I'll have to go post a review on another link.

LOL, yeah those three are the same that gave me a run for my money. I saw Don playing and sent him a message about it. I was like...surely there must be some power up in other worlds that allow you to jump up and get those. He was like...no idiot. j/k He was nice about it, but they are possible to get within that world. I just got them after a lot of trial and error.

I'm not sure if the game is worth the full price...depends. It is only 5 worlds and has a speed run after you finish it. That is what people were complaining about. However, this is a very unique game that truly has to be experienced. I just finished world 3 and my mind is starting to melt...in a good way.

Eurogamer gave this a 100/100, which is not that common for them.

Just tried the demo- pretty fun! I like the time travel concept and the fact you never die. I got all but 3 of the puzzle pieces. I just can't figure out how to get the 2 at the end of World 2-2 and the 1 at the beginning of 2-4. It is a little pricey but this may be one I actually buy.

XBLM is bleeding my wallet.

So I take it you've played this one? at $15 it's a little steep, so is it really worth it?

Starting today, you can download and play Braid for a chance to earn prizes. This is the full or demo version. I haven't played it yet, but it sounds like a great game with a unique concept.

If you didn't download & play Geometry Wars 2, the time has expired for you to be entered into the prize drawing with it. HOWEVER....I HIGHLY encourage you to try this game. It is quick, fun, and addicting. Not to mention it is getting higher reviews than Soul Calibur IV right now.
