    I really want to play this, but for £9.99.. and people say there's only 3 hours worth of gameplay?

    3 or 4 hours of glorious gameplay though. It's a memorable game as well. Its usually better to play 4 hours of something brilliant than 12 hours of something average.

    I was doubtful about it at first too, and waited until it was in the sale, but would have been happy paying full price for it.

    I'm sure I saw this on the Game website the other day, bundled with Trials HD and Splosion Man for less than a tenner. Check it out. You might even get some free pubes thrown in.

    I hate retailer exclusive content.


    I have a feeling they were talking about the PS3 version so I imagine that deal isn't possible...

    Yup. Why should people who buy the game from other stores not be entitled to them as well?!

    I have a question about this game. I bought it on the 360 when it first came out and loved it. My friend recently got it on PSN and also liked it but he told me that he found the boy's deaths hillarious. I then told him that they weren't funny and in fact horrible and that he was sadistic. So my question is this, did you find the boy's deaths funny or horrible? Am I too sensitive or is my friend just sadistic? We are both very interested to hear what other people's opinions are.

    They're funny, most because they're shocking. Cartoon slapstick in a spooky environment.

    They're funny, in a 'if you don't laugh you'll cry' sort of way.

    i.e. they are creepy and horrible, but I laughed.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    No they arent funny, they arent meant to be. They are meant to be brutal and sickening so as to deter you from making the same mistake which killed you. You dont want your mysterious little boy to die, you flinch when he is crushed and chopped in half, you feel a connection with him and want him to reach his destination with as little punishment as possible.

    It's pretty much the same with horror movies some find the kills hilarious and others don't like to watch these movies. I don't understand that humour.

    Gallows humour, it is for sure.

    I didn't laugh whilst playing Limbo. I found the atmosphere to be quite clawing after a while tbh.

    Second only to Demons Souls for unsettling atmosphere imo.

    Nice.

    I really want more Limbo. I keep on checking the dev's site to see if they might have announced a sequel, which they obviously never will.

    Perfect game for those long nights. I remember playing it last year around this time, perfect time for it.

    Not exactly the game to play during the day in the middle of summer. That sort of thing annoys the hell out of me, people just ruin the game for themselves.


    That's another thing i notice, people dont talk much about that either. Play a game at the right time in the right mood, and you will appreciate it more, you do yourself and the makers a disservice by not doing so, People dont talk about that much i notice.

    People dont talk about much of anything concering games at all these days. Just the same thing over and over. This is why i love games like Limbo, it attracts the sort of attention it deserves, it is a special game, it is genuinely different. Anyone who doesn't care for it aren't worth caring about, and are playing games for the wrong reasons. It isn't just about the gameplay it is about the experience as a whole.














    Thats another thing

    Xardan - that's another thing. I like how you joke about that.

    Limbo. Lovely, awesome game. I just wanted more. And "that's another thing" is Limbo 2 on the cards?

    So...had a little break from Skyrim and played this finally for an hour. I'm actually moved.

    It's incredible.

    Playing this after picking it up in the Steam sale.

    The animation, visuals and sound are great but the gameplay devolves into tiresome trail-and-error nonsense fairly quickly. I'll probably finish it because it's short but it's very much a case of style over substance.

    I've been stuck on one instadeath timing thing for the past 20 minutes since i posted that.

    I'm getting to the "FUCK THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!11111111!!!!!!!!!" stage. It can look as pretty as it likes but i'm beginning to actively hate playing it now.
