I spend a lot of my time online doing one of three or all three things: reading fanfiction, listening to music/researching for new music and browsing for research and information. Ton— this morning I've spent a lot of my time doing...research.

It allll started while I was looking at some new uploads by people I'm following on YouTube. One young gal, who is also someone I watch on deviantART, uploaded a "walkthrough" of her playing this fan-fucking-tastic indie PC game called Limbo.

Limbo seems to be...a game unlike any out there. It's a 2D sidescroller, and you know many games like this are the best among the best, and classic puzzle-platform game. OH, but this is like Mario for the dark lovers out there. I swear....look up some videos on YouTube. Feast your eyes on this magnificence!

The primary character in Limbo is a nameless boy who awakens in the middle of a forest on the "edge of hell". The boy seeks his missing sister, and encounters only a few human characters that attack or run away from him. Not to mention mother fucking bigass spiders, weird, creepy-ass sharptoothed wormlike things, humanoids looking like children that commit suicide with maggot like things attached to their heads (or is that web?), and the environment itself can be your demise. And the whole game is in grayscale with black to fill in the boy (his eyes are white), the creatures, etc! OH, such FUN~! I do mean this 100% and I'm severely arachnophobic! I still want it!

So that definitely says something!

Man, though, the music can creep the shit out of you. Think...Silent Hill.

I'm going to create a wishlist of indie and other strange games I wish to add to my collection and show what I find here. I need a larger video game selection aside from Mario, TLOZ, Kingdom Hearts, Jak and Daxter, and Final Fantasy.
