Avatar Legends: A Must Have Indie Game

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4SlIQs-o6I&w=640&h=390]

I usually browse the indie game section on xbox live every few days. Many of the games there... well, arent the most fun to play. I really have enjoyed a few games though from the indie marketplace, Stunt Bike Racer, and Avatar Golf come right to mind. But I have sense found a new favorite, and its even taken playing time away from my achievement whoring.

When I scrolled over Avatar Legends, it instantly caught my eye. I didnt purchase it right away though. The next day at work, i jumped on youtube and found this trailer for the game. At that moment I was sold.  The game is so clever and witty, and has more humor than any rpg ive ever played.  I keep finding things that make me laugh. Like today I was going through the open world and read a sign that said "Lost Forrest: We would call it Woods but fear a law suit". Clearly a hit at OOT. It's brilliant and subtle humor, it even plays on things from the rpg genre that doesnt make much sense.

There are many quest and side quest on your way, and I found myself wanting to complete them. The game oddly takes me back to Majoras Mask and Ocarina of Time.  A friend of mine actually came over and saw me playing it today and said "This reminds me of zelda."  There are some features I havent even tried yet.  The game includes a level creator so you can create your own stories and towns, and a multiplayer level creator. Neither one I have touched yet.

Last night, a friend of mine and I stayed up till 3:00am playing the multiplayer aspect. There was a bit of a learning curve at first but once your a few levels up you start to become addicted to the gameplay.  Escpecially when gaining new titles for your character and upgrades.

If you are reading this, buy this game now. It is only 240 msp, and it is worth it 100%.
