I liked Shadow Complex, with the side scroller. I loved the old Metriod games for GBA. But this doesn't interest me at all, i don't know why, but it looks more to do with these basicly laser puzzles, which doesn't get my interest.
Housemarque-developed light-and-dark action game gets narrowed release window for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Outland is nearly online. In a post on the PlayStation Blog today, a Sony representative updated the release window of the Housemarque-developed game, saying it's now set to debut on the PlayStation Network in late April or early May. A Ubisoft representative confirmed for GameSpot that the same release window will apply to the Xbox 360 edition of the game.
Ubisoft has previously said the game is inspired by "epic adventures such as the Prince of Persia series" and name-checked Treasure's vertically scrolling arcade shooter Ikaruga as an influence on Outland's core gameplay. In Ikaruga, players could swap the color of their ship between black and white at will; each color could absorb bullets of the same shade, allowing skilled players to weave their way through otherwise impenetrable barrages of enemy fire. Outland brings the same mechanic to a side-scrolling action game, with blue and red enemies representing the forces of light and dark.
The game's soundtrack will be composed by Ari Pulkkinen. While Pulkkinen has previously teamed with Housemarque on Super Stardust HD, he is perhaps better known for his work on the cooperative action adventure Trine and the breakout iPhone hit Angry Birds.

Surprised there is so much negativity around here. People wonder why good games sell so little? Anyway I think the art direction is very good so that has me interested but then the puzzles look like they will get tougher which will make it more interesting and the only let down is the combat looking kind of simple but they seem to have had some combat go with the puzzles too for a bit more diversity. I think it looks good and I don't buy all that many XBL titles (I buy quite a few but not all, still not even got castle crashers yet) but Hawken, Dust an Elysian tale and Outland are all getting my money.
Outland = "Outlandish" HAHAHAHA ha ha.... ha.... ok, is it just me or are the puns getting old? :roll:
