theXBLIG aims to tackle XBLIG reviews with a refreshingly abridged style, laying out the bullet points, the merits and flaws of a game, while adding a layer of humor, a dash of movie quotes and/or social commentary, simmer for a bit, then cool and serve… er, publish, in 500 words or less. The goal isn’t necessarily to get you out of one review and on to the next, but to adhere to the modern adage of ‘time is money’ …or MSP, in this case. The faster you learn a verdict, the faster you can get back to playing.

Gear Fish hauls in the latest Indie releases every week for a quick run-down, with in-depth coverage for the truly transient and the abysmally awful to let you know what's worth checking out. In addition, we also try to give some love (or lack thereof) to some of the major releases out there. Our reviews cast off the arbitrary scores used by every other site in favor of a different arbitrary metric: American dollars.

Armless Octopus is a website dedicated to covering Xbox Live Indie Games, but we’ve been known to dabble in PC and XBLA games as well. The Indie Marketplace is an imposing wasteland of vibrating controller gimmicks and avatar dance parties, but hidden inside that abyss of garbage is a plethora of innovative and retro-style games that are inexpensive and a lot of fun.  We sift through the muck and help you decide what is worth checking out.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Game is not for everyone, but then again what indie game is? One time a member of the creators club, but now reflecting from a detached viewpoint upon the state of XBLIG, and of course the nature of the gameplay contained therein, Our Daily Game's creator does not post daily, instead a posting is made whenever any game tickles his fancy. Or when a game just needs to be written about.
