    Hurray. I want Final Frontier!

  • lokijki

    Ugh, I cannot get over how good Card Saga Wars looks. Release that, already!

  • Chronomaster

    CSW I've been looking forward to, forever. It looks like it'd be a real hit in the casual fighting game scene, at least, and seems to offer something for the professional. A good boundary game for everyone.

    Snapshot is new to me, and I like the concept. Get.

    Fez, I will not buy until the PC version comes out, if at all. It seems like a really important game that I'd go back to every once in a while, and I don't trust that the 360 would offer me the same lifetime security that a PC would. Sad, but that's the breaks.

    Jamestown is another new game to me. Seems like it'd might be fun, but I'd like to see a level run video before committing. So far, though, it seems crazy fun with the right group.

    Skullgirls is in a similar condition. I want to see a fight video before I render a verdict. The trailer does not convey the game well, unlike Jamestown. Art is nice, but witnessing the mechanical structure is important to me. It is a game after all!

    XBLA BLA BLA BLA BLA

    Card Saga Wars, Jamestown and, maybe, Skulls of the Shogun – sweet. I'm also disappointed that Fez is an XBLA exclusive. And, as far as I remember, Fallen Frontier is XBLA/PSN only.

    Card Saga Wars is never coming out, I swear. I've been following it since, gosh…2004? 2005?

  • Seraph

    Yeah, I was so bummed to hear that Fez was an XBLA exclusive.
    First it was LIMBO, then Fez, now Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is looking to be an Xbox only title too. Tears of Rage! WHY DO THEY DO THESE THINGS?!! Rain falls, orchestra swells “WHYYYYY”

    Looks like its going to be cool. Hey does anyone here know people at Nintendo Life? I love this site, and I got banned from NL for fighting with the one Moderator “The Black Dragon”, shes really mean. i was just saying similiar things about certain games, like how most of these games they have on the wiiware service like “Retro City Rampage” are just vaporware, or aren't going to come out… and I got banned… and now she banned my IP address… so, Tigsource, I think congratz and thanks are due on my part. You guys have usurped their seemingly stupid website, with a better kickass one for me. I am forever indebted

  • Alez

    I think I just want all of them, but screw Xbox exclusivity…

  • Monarka

    here's a video where the programer explains how the sistem worsk on skullgrils (really really nice :D a must get if u are a fan of vs sistem since marvel super heroes, guilty gear, and diferent supercombo sistems) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…

  • Ezuku

    Yeah, I think they're really cutting down their market. Everyone owns a PC. How many people own a console? How many people own the *right* console they want to publish on?

    Not to mention most indy fans will be dedicated PC game players.

    Same here. I remember posting enthusiastically about it some five years ago on a forum that doesn't even exist anymore. I still have it on my radar, I visit the website once a year or so as a kind of pilgrimage. But honestly, even if it does progress to any kind of release candidate form, I can see a huge “cease n desist” hammer hanging over its head in the background, just waiting to crush it into oblivion.

    Final Frontier reminds me of LinkDead

  • Squidly

    I'm almost happy, PC have got the best of it here….

    except Fez……and there's still hope for that. Don't let us down, Polytron.

    Judging from the list of things they want to do, and what is complete, looks like there's still quite a way to go.

    I've been following what little information about Skullgirls that's been made available through Mecha Fetus; the lead animator worked on the Scott Pilgrim game, too.
