I loved Limbo when it debuted last year. It was arguably the best game in the entire Summer of Arcade line-up and ushered in a whole new era of indie-developed games that are still thriving today in various digital-download outlets. Even as I type...

Among the deluge of big budget first person shooters and action adventures currently available, Limbo is a breath of fresh air. While its monochromatic art-style and hand-drawn animations create a unique visual style, its soft ambient sounds and dark...

Ever since I first saw images of Limbo, I just had to get my hands on the game….and by that I mean get this game downloaded onto my Xbox 360.I know this game is a puzzle game, but it seemed completely original in every way. The game is all about a...
