$20 Game of the Week: The Wonderful End of the World

The world is coming to an end. Unlike 2 weeks ago, it really is happening this time. Instead of some douche evangelist, it will end at the hands of a mythological demon with a fish for a head. There is no way to prevent it. Instead, it falls upon you to gather everything that was great about the world so you can build a new one. You’ll do so by controlling an avatar which rolls over everything it wants to gather, causing it to stick to him. Waitaminute, where have I heard this before? Okay, so TWEOTW may share some similarities with a certain game created by Namco, but if Saint’s Row taught us anything, it’s that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So if you got a few bucks, you can download this fun title. It may not be original, but it is fun.

$20 Game of the Week: Super Meat Boy (PC, Xbox Live Arcade)

Super Meat Boy is a clever throwback to 2D platformers of the past, bringing with it a insane sense of humor and an even more insane level of difficulty. As the title character, you set out to rescue your girlfriend Bandage Girl from Dr. Fetus, a fetus in a glass jar and tuxedo. No, I am not making this up. You pursue him throughout over 300 levels, along with hidden warp zones and alternate ‘Dark World’ versions of levels. The levels are chock full of hazards. You can expect to die and die often. At the end of the level, you are treated to a replay of your progress including all the death’s you’ve suffered trying to complete the level. You can unlock characters from other indie video games such as Braid’s Tim and Bit Trip’s Commander Video. Each of these characters has their own unique powers, and some are needed to access the game’s collectables. The game has a unique art style that smacks of retro 8 and 16 bit games, although it clearly won’t be for everyone due to it’s heavy difficulty. If you appreciate hardcore challenges and miss gaming’s classic era, then Super Meat Boy is for you.
