Mibibli's Quest, the truly mad and truly excellent 2D Platformer from last year, was re-released just last week on Steam with added content.

For those of you not familiar with Mibibli's Quest (a safe assumption being that that is most if not all of you), it is a 2D Platforming game developed solely by Ryan Melmoth. It seems to have been primarily inspired by the Mother series as well as Mega Man, and it is home to some of the freshest ideas seen in a Platformer in years.

The game was originally available for free/pay-what-you-want download on itch.io; But the new version costs about the same as the recommended payment and contains new content not found in the original. 

It is a game with solid core mechanics that constantly changes up. Each level has a new core concept or hook that plays with the basic controls and abilities that you start with, as well those given to you throughout the course of the game, and memorably distinct NPC's are around every corner just to give you something to laugh about. 

The level's hooks range from playing pseudo-DDR in order to keep yourself from getting shot by turrets to you're jumping between platforms set in binary code, to even a quick Street Fighter style fighting game level.

It never gets stale at any point.

Be warned that this game contains a variety of graphic content. It contains mild violent, religious, and sexual imagery, as well as occasional hard-cursing, although none of it is very intense or truly offensive. If none of this bothers you, have it. 

It's a Platformer that's challenging, charming, freaky, funny, sexual, but above all else unique and memorable. And fun, let's not forget fun.

The game is also only $6.00, so you're getting a bargain on top of all of this. If you want to you can also pay an additional $4.00 if you want to snag the game's official soundtrack. You want to spend those extra $4.00, trust me. Mibibli's Quest has a next level soundtrack (picking just one track to show off here was very, VERY difficult).

With all that said, go check out Mibibli's Quest. It's a grand gaming experience you aren't likely to forget.

Every penny you throw at it will be well spent.

Will E3 Mean a Bargain Bonanza for Outgoing Consoles? https://www.gameskinny.com/jc23b/will-e3-mean-a-bargain-bonanza-for-outgoing-consoles https://www.gameskinny.com/jc23b/will-e3-mean-a-bargain-bonanza-for-outgoing-consoles Thu, 06 Jun 2013 09:00:15 -0400 Capt. Eliza Creststeel

With all the hype over the PS4 and X-Box One releases and forums lit up with expectations, one thing that you can always depend on - new technology is preceded by price cuts in the current tech.

Michael Pachter, a gaming industry analyst for Wedbush, published a note to investors recently where he said to expect the big boys to slash prices on their current systems. He also made predictions regarding the upcoming systems and games price points.

Likely with their new models rev'ing up in the wings, Microsoft and Nintendo will be cutting the prices of their X-Box 360 and PS-3 models respectively. It only makes sense as the same fate befell the original X-box and PS-2 some years ago.

However, he also made a prediction. Based on the weak performance of the Wii U in the United States, Pachter postulated that Nintendo could drop the price as much as $50.00 off the Basic and Deluxe sets. As of today, Nintendo has made no formal announcement that it intends to do so. In the past Nintendo has opted to create bundle packs instead of dropping prices.

So, will there be a market for these bargain basement consoles? With word flying around that used games may become a thing of the past and game designers likely will redirect their efforts to the newer models, you could pick up a PS-3 or an X-Box 360 for a steal but then be stuck with no new games coming out and used gaming stores struggling to remain open.

They may have to make room in that Atari E.T. landfill for all those consoles.
