As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So my HTPC is FINALLY set up in a way that allows me to easily watch films and play games, without having to faff around and reboot. I've recently discovered I only like platform games, this may seem a bit weird but out of all the games I've played it's platform games I've enjoyed the most and actually finished (at least recently).
What platforming games are good for the pc? I've been enjoying Super Meat Boy and N+ on the 360, I've finished Trine (which I loved) on PC and also just polished off Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands, which I enjoyed except for the combat being a little naff.
What other gems am I missing? Balls-hard 2d indie games are welcome, as are slightly more combat orientated games like PoP (though I've finished every game in the series...even PoP3d). Old games are good too, I liked Heart of Darkness, Flashback, Another World, that kind of thing.
In general, suggest me pc games (preferably that work well with the 360 pad) that involve jumping, leaping, hanging from ledges and climbing.
Oh and feel free to discuss platforming games.
