Happy Tuesday! Today we run down all the games headed to the PlayStation Vita, divulge details on the newest Borderlands 2 DLC, examine the new Kickstarter for The Big Blue, and reiterate how awesome BioShock Infinite is. Also, a full port of XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming to iOS this summer!
The votes have been counted, the judges have been bribed, the host is coked up. It's time to honor the best free, independently-developed games of the last year!
Happy Monday, folks! We've got plenty to talk about today, including a review of Spelunky on XBLA, details on FOUR limited edition games for sale, and news of possible GTA V appearance at Gamescom? Also, Sony bought cloud-gaming service Gaikai for $380 million, but what exactly does this mean for the future of gaming?!
Today on Hard News, King's trademark nonsense targets Stoic Studios' Banner Saga, Spelunky mod allows players to save a level and play it again, and Yaiba has been delayed by two weeks .
Happy Tuesday! Max is still out, so Adam filled in again today to talk about the Ouya's disappointing (but hopeful!) sales numbers, and Spelunky's excusive daily challenges on Steam. We also discuss forthcoming DLC for Borderlands 2 and Saints Row IV, the unsurprising delay of Wasteland 2, and the drama surrounding Eidos Montreal and Square Enix.

Spelunky review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Spelunky for XBox Live Arcade. For every successful Indiana Jones, how many more are there who never make it past the first boulder? Prepare to be that first Indy. And the second, and the third, and so on and so on. Spelunky brings indie sensibilities to a Nintendo Hard mine-exploration challenge, full of off-beat hazards, obstacles, hostiles, and the occasional haunting. (Or an angry dude with a shotgun.) Add a dash of Bomberman-frantic deathmatch and you've got HIT THE DIRT INCOMING ZOMBIE. This video review features video gameplay footage of Spelunky for XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Yesterday I reviewed Spelunky! I love it, even though it hates me. It hates everyone. It's ridiculously hard. I invited the game's designer, Derek Yu, into the studio to talk about the game and see if he's any better at it than the average player.
Take a trip into the earth with Spelunky.
