There are too many good indie games coming out. T_T

  • Niglet

    Super Meat Boy is like sex. If you don't like it there's something wrong with you.

  • Svenjers

    i have a theory that everyone that likes this game is the same person

  • Yup

    Just another chapter of the TIGSource conspiracy revealed.

  • Manki

    That could explain all the “likes” on his hateful posts.

  • Niglet

    yeah well um, hate to break this too you, but godhand really isn't that great.

  • Billy Wenge-Murphy

    You're picking on that particular joke, which is a single “internet meme” joke that occupies a few seconds within an 82 second video. Does the video get no credit for the part where the WHOLE THING is a reference to the style of the 90s? A time before the WWW, and when the Internet was still an underground thing? The other “joke” is “hella tight” which is not just an attempt to say a silly phrase, it too is a comment on the 90s, where slang of the day like “radical” was used constantly in advertising targeted at kids.

    tl;dr: Yes, nerds should evolve beyond bleating 4chan garbage and “da caek iz a lai” every 5 seconds, but damn, way to overreact to one joke made one time in one video

  • Billy Wenge-Murphy

    I was born in '85, and I clearly remember 90s commercials (and by extension, all TV aimed at kids) trying to be EXXXXXTREME. I thought it was a good imitation, minus the 4chan reference which seems like an anachronism.

  • Billy Wenge-Murphy

    Bad analogy. It's more like if you read a football blog and you're goddamn tired of hearing about Brett Favre.

  • Manki

    I can connect see the commercial to the 90's. I'm wondering if it's specifically american commercials in the 90's? Do other countries have different experiences?

  • Manki

    *Edit sorry*
    * I can see the connection to 90's commercials …

  • Macho Madness

    That SMB commercial is fucking radical.

  • Vania

    1) Sarcasm should be banned from the internet, especially when it's so poorly done.

    2) The game has been tremendously overhyped and it doesnt even look that good to me. But that just means Team Meat did a very good job in the marketing, and who can blame them?
    Edmund has made some great games in the past, so financial stability should allow him to keep making awesome games without worrying so much about money.

  • Blake

    I like it how you said stuff but what you were actually doing is you were saying stuff that meant the exact opposite of what you actually wrote down bro you rock you were stylin that shit.
    I'm a chick btw

  • Blake

    You seem to have misunderstood me.
    'shut the fuck up about super meat boy and fez this site posts like once a week and its about the same old shit we've been hearing about for ages'

  • DustySpur

    i wonder what it feels like to hate the greatest game ever made

    please tell me phasmafelis

  • PhasmaFelis

    No, that's exactly what I'm talking about.

    TIGsource loves quirky little platformers (currently, Super Meat Boy and Fez) and “celebrity” developers. It has always loved quirky little platformers and celebrity developers. If you'll look to your right, “Platformers” and “Community” are the two biggest news categories other than “Windows”.

    So why do people come in here and go “ARGH STOP TALKING ABOUT QUIRKY LITTLE PLATFORMERS AND CELEBRITY DEVELOPERS” as if they think that's actually going to happen? There are tons of excellent indie gaming blogs with a broader focus–again, conveniently listed to your right. You know what you're gonna find at TIGsource. You're always gonna hate it. Why keep slamming your head against that wall?

  • Blake

    Because I like hearing about other quirky platformers and developers.
    How does it feel to be stupid?

  • jumps

    tim & eric show

  • PhasmaFelis

    Ouch, man! You had it all going for you with that first sentence. You raised a good point! We could have had a dialogue, man. A dialogue. But you dropped the ball.

    I mean, “How does it feel to be stupid”? That's like baby school material. Now I just want to pat you on the head and give you a cookie.

  • blake

    You're stupid. When I asked you how it feels to be stupid, it actually wasn't a question, and I'm glad you picked up on this, because I made a very important point. I was actually literally implying that you are unintelligent. You're a faggot. You are a single human being and you manage to encapsulate the entire etymology of the word 'faggot' in all its pejorative forms – a singularity. You represent the word and its posterity – it's future, its past and its present. Your a cock. You're phimosis personified, a dick with a fucked up foreskin. That's how shit you are.

    I like hearing about other quirky platformers that are not super meat boy and Fez, and I like hearing it from Tigsource, because I like Tigsource. Tigsource also reflects greatly on the Indie scene itself – and I like indie games.

  • Mishi

    Have fun with that heart attack.

  • PhasmaFelis

    OMG, so adorable. Do another one! Um, how about a challenge? Try to work in the word “vulva” this time. Also “anterior”. Both of those.

    Anyway, it's sort of a fair point. Better than the guys who come in here and whine about how TIGsource is all about platformers and retro pixel art, anyway. On the other hand, my internet gnomes tell me that this is the first time either Fez or Super Meat Boy has been mentioned in months, so…I think you're overreacting a bit.

  • Mike Hunt


    I got this one.

  • blake

    yes but proportionate the entire amount of posts that are made it's actually pretty significant.
    your dick is inversely proportionate to how much of a faggot you are, which is pretty significant as well. I have you on two levels. Nothing can avail you. Your finished. I'll watch you emaciate. You're a gay man with no asshole or cock. See how bitterly ironic this is? See what I've done to you? We have no respect for you. You're an outcast. This is power.

  • PhasmaFelis

    Aw, man, I thought “anterior” had some real potential! Sure you don't want to give it a try?

    Good use of “emaciate”, though.

  • blake

    Yes I also enjoyed its contextual relevance.

    “Aw, man, I thought “anterior” had some real potential! Sure you don't want to give it a try?” – This is why you're gay. Everything about the way you wrote this is shit.

  • Brandon McCartin

    Hi, this is Brandon from TIGSource. If you like it here so much, maybe you could try not spewing shit all over the place? Thanks.
