A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft unveiled their "Summer of Arcade" lineup for the month of August with some high profile titles that people have been waiting to play. One of the titles in that list, Braid, was released last week. Braid is one of those...

The days of the lone bedroom programmer have well and truly returned. The aesthetically beautiful and philosophically challenging time-travelling 2D platform puzzle adventure Braid proves it to be so without doubt. Designer Jonathan Blow will no doubt...

Braid is the most gorgeous slice of chocolate cake you can possible imagine wrapped in a silk cloth and tied with a pink ribbon. It's a paradoxical experience of simplistic charm and over-bearing sensory and logical complexity. No one in the gaming...

The Xbox Live Arcade's been going through a rather fruitful period of late, with last week's most awesome Geometry Wars 2 proving to be one of the most addictive pieces of entertainment we've played all year. This week, Microsoft have gone and followed...

Costs more than most Xbox Live Arcade games

It is impossible to ignore Braid's price point. At 1,200 Microsoft points (AU$23.96), it is one of the most expensive games for the Xbox Live Arcade service. But do not let a few extra dollars deter you from an exemplary experience that can rival many...

There are the kinds of games that you know are great the moment you first start playing them. Not just because they look good or have an amazing production value, but rather because of how they make you feel. Braid is that kind of game, a small Xbox...

Braid is an absolute masterpiece, from beginning to end. It's the kind of game that will stick with you long after you've completed it. It's the kind of game that you'll feel the need to tell all your friends about. It's the kind of game we'll still be...

After a bit of a lull, 360 owners are being spoiled rotten with a string of excellent exclusive titles. It's safe to say, without any form of exaggeration, that Braid is the best Xbox Live Arcade game released thus far, for many reasons.

Braid is an upcoming Xbox Live Arcade game that you probably haven't heard about. After I had some extensive hands on time with a near-finished build of the game, it is safe to say that Braid is a game you will be hearing a lot more about as it nears...
