Obviously, if I have a profile on this site, it means that I play video games. I also happen to write, and the two have made a harmonious combination for a hobby. I mainly write FAQs and reviews, and *try* to stick to one of these categories:

-RPG and non-linear adventure games
-Anything with horror or b-movie elements
-Anything unique, obscure, or just plain weird

Sounds broad, but it also means you probably won't see a Super Mario Bros. 3 review from me any time soon.

...and I wonder if it's possible to hate every level of a game, but still love the game. Seriously, every level makes me want to punch babies, they're so infuriating. But god, is the game addictive.

I've been eyeing the game for quite some time, but I've not bought it yet in fear of it being too frustrating. Still on the fence, but if I were to buy an XBLA game right now, it'd probably be Limbo or something else.

You'll finish the game in a reasonable time but die thousands (yes, literally thousands) of times.

Also if you get it for the PC (where it is normally $5 cheaper and has lately been going on sale) you might want to play it with a gamepad.

All this when Quake is on XBLA? Crazy.

Yeah, I've got the PC version, and thankfully I have a pad. I've read about complaints of a slightly unresponsive jump button, and I've noticed as much. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.

Grr... Apparently the PC version is very glitchy. The final boss is supposed to chase you, yet in copies of the PC version he does not. This basically keeps you from beating the game. Lame...

I really enjoyed the main game. I did some minor optional stuff here and there but for the most part just finishing the main story was enough for me and I shelved it.

Also played the PC version with a wired 360 pad. Never noticed any issues.

Ah, problem fixed. All I had to do was mess with the screen resolution.
