These Xbox Indies Look Very Good

Did you ever look at the Xbox Live Indie Games channel and think that the games all suck? If so, you didn't look closely enough.

This week starts the Winter Games Uprising, a week of new indie games that aren't supposed to be stinkers or cash-ins. That's the official trailer for the games up top. All are from the hungry developers who create games on the channel with only the approval of their peers (Microsoft by and large stays out of it.)


Some of the games are supposed to be out today, but there are no official release dates. The scheduling is determined by how quickly each game gets through the peer review process. Prices for the games fun from $1-$5. All games will have free demos.

You can search for Indie Games by logging onto Xbox Live and browsing through the Indie shop in the games marketplace.

I read good things about Breath of Death VII, so I purchased and downloaded it a while ago.

Ugh. I couldn't stand the constant random fights against repeated monsters. Yes, I know, that's what makes a turn-based RPG, but I haven't enjoyed one of those since I played my first (and only) Pokémon game in the Game Boy Color, back in the year 2000.

On the other hand, it only cost me $1, so I didn't regret the purchase, lol. At least I did a little bit to support the developer, even though I didn't enjoy the game at all. :P
