Welcome to Press X To Continue. I know it is trite to say, but this is a blog written by gamers, for gamers. We are self funded and self edited, meaning the reviews are written with honest opinions about a medium we have a great passion for. As we are self funded, we cannot always bring reviews of the latest games to hit the market, but we will try our hardest. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have regarding anything at all.

The Humble Indie Bundle V

Remember last week when we told you about The Humble Indie Bundle V, and how there were five awesome games you could download for a very, very small fee?

Well, make that eight.

Three new games have been added:

  • Braid
  • Super Meat Boy
  • Lone Survivor

If you’ve already paid for the first part of the bundle then these three are ready and waiting for you.  If not, you can unlock them by paying the average price, or more.

It’s definitely worth it, and the money goes to a good cause.

Get on it!

Side note: Our fingers are crossed that Ubisoft don’t let Mr. Caffeine out of his cage again.


After much anticipation Nintendo have made their “big announcement”.  In our opinion, not so much big just more… disappointing.  We were hoping for a new name, but instead we got the following:
The Wii U GamePad is changing ever so slightly to make it a bit more comfortable.
Wii controllers will be compatible.
There will be a new controller available separately, the Wii U Pro Controller.  See above.
Some social aspects have been added.
Does that look a bit familiar to you?  It certainly does to us.  It’s just different enough to get away with it.  Not that it’s really a problem, the Xbox 360 controller is comfortable and works well, so unless Microsoft gets angry about it it doesn’t really matter.
Also in the announcement was what can only be described as a god-awful abomination of a promotional video.  It was embarrassing to watch, with it’s over-acting and un-funny comedy.
The announcement also went into a little bit of detail about the social side of the Wii U.  The Miiverse and the Mii Wara Wara.  They allow you to interact with friends and strangers, leaving messages and drawings for them to see.  If that’s your sort of thing then cool, but if not it may get in the way a bit.
So to summarise, some controller information, embarrassment, social networking, no new name.

We’re back.  Hope you didn’t forget about us.
We took an unplanned hiatus for literally no reason.  We will be up and ready to cover this year’s E3 again, though.  Much like last year, only this year.
In the meantime, have a look at the tasty Humble Bundle V by clicking the image above.
You can get yourself:
Bastion
Amnesia: The Dark Decent
Psychonauts
Limbo
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
All of those, which are all amazingly good games by indie devlopers, for however much you can afford.  Bastion unlocks if you meet or exceed the average price, which, at the time of posting, is $7.50 US.  It’s climbing steadily, so get in while you can.
Not forgetting that you also get the soundtrack to each game included in the price!
The money gets split 3 ways.  Developers, charity, Humble Bundle.  You choose who gets how much of your money.  It’s perfect all round, really.
So, go get some awesome games, donate to charity, and then tell us what you thought.
