Psychonauts looks promising. GS review.

I was worried with the change in publisher and the late addition of new platforms, but it looks like they finished the Xbox version first.

I played the PC demo. It's interesting, not a bad little platformer. I'll probably end up renting the full version later.

I played the OXM demo. Very good for a platformer. Really amazing artistic direction.

I think I'm going to buy Psychonauts, plus I have a 10% off coupon for Best Buy. Just played the demo on the new OXM disc and thought it was a fun game. The closest games I have in my Xbox library to being platformers are Ninja Gaiden and Jet Set Radio Future, so Psychonauts will be a refreshing change of pace.

Psychonauts has been getting some great reviews and some reviewers have been calling it the best platformer on the Xbox. Doom 3, Splinter Cell : Pandora Tomorrow, Jade Empire and now Psychonauts....good game overload. Hopefully Forza, Advent Rising, Conker and maybe Darkwatch will keep the good times comin'.

BTW, turnip, have you played Psychonauts?

If you want a great Xbox platformer get Oddworld Strangers. Best Xbox game released this year, IMO.

No. I have discovered I can troll more efficiently if I remain uninformed.
