Indieverse: Vehicular Mayhem


“Slamming down the gas pedal to the floor and smashing into stuff is a favorite pastime for many virtual racing enthusiasts, ourselves included. You don’t have to be a total gearhead to get a few kicks from hopping into anything with a seat, a steering wheel, and a high-powered motor. When it comes to all things racing and motorized, the Xbox Live Indie Games Channel has some horsepower under the hood. Here are some of our favorite picks for racers, both quick and quirky.”

Indieverse: Penny Arcade Adventures Returns to Xbox


“Like most things that rise from the dead, the Penny Arcade Adventures series is a very different creature from what it once was. But for the creators of the popular gaming webcomic and new cohorts Zeboyd Games (the two-man indie studio tapped to complete the once-doomed episodic series), it’s good to see their creation finally walking within the realm of the living.”

Indieverse: Dating, Sex, and Relationships (@OXM)


“Dating games and  stranger fare sporting sexy-tinged content pop-up on the Xbox Live Indie  Games channel all the time, offering a titillating-yet-creepy buffer  between the avalanche of shooters, zombie holocaust simulators, and  platformers. Let’s be honest — while most of these offerings have a serious  tone, they’re all pretty ridiculous. Whether you’re looking for remote  controller massages and online avatar hook-ups or relationship advice  and cheesy distraction, this selection of indie oddities touches all the  bases.”

If you’re looking to find your groove, then scope out these rocking selections from the Xbox Live Indie Games channel.”

Indieverse: It’s Good To Be Bad (@OXM)


“News flash – being good is dumb. Running around saving captured princess, smiting the forces of darkness, and saving the land from being destroyed? Booorrrriiiinnng. We’ve done that all before a million times over, so why not let us players have the opportunity to cut loose and take a walk on the dark side?

Thankfully, a handful of indie developers exactly feel the same way. If you’re sick and tired of playing as the same old do-gooders day and night, it’s about time you join TEAM EVIL. We’ve rounded up four awesome Xbox Live Indie Games that allow you to kick off your sissy shoes and stomp through the garden of goody-goody lameness.

Whether you’re in the mood to incite a zombie apocalypse, feed babies to your dark lord, burn down the most decadent castle in the realm, or dine on the blood of your mortal enemies, these bite-sized downloadables have you covered.”

Indieverse: Attack of the Minecraft Clones (@ OXM)


“For a small indie studio, selling more than 4.7 million copies of your debut game is pretty incredible. Beginning in 2009, the blocky but absorbing sandbox fantasy realm within Minecraft grabbed a hold of gamers’ hearts (and eventually, their wallets) with surprising ferocity. Its runaway success on PC skyrocketed creator Markus “Notch” Persson and his development team, Mojang, into the mainstream public eye, generating some serious green in the process.

It’s no surprise that plenty of “me too” imitators have come pouring out of the woodwork to vie for a piece of the action, especially on platforms like the Xbox 360, where it has been unavailable. If you’re an Xbox 360 owner itching to get a taste of Minecraft’s RPG-survivalist building, crafting, and exploring adventure, that’s not such a bad thing. The Xbox Live Indie Games Channel is already packing a few crafty clones that offer a similar experience — and they’re pretty awesome for the few bucks you’ll spend on them. We still have a few months to wait before Minecraft hits Xbox Live this spring, so why not dig into these indies in the meantime?”
