Game Hype: Guacamelee Dated, Square Enix Crazy

Guacamelee!, the game I previewed at IndieCade last Summer is out April 9 on PS3 and Vita. Team up with a friend as two luchadores and fight evil while platforming and kicking butt. This game is a great blend of beat-em up, platforming, and colorful design. From DrinkBox Studios who gave us Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack this looks to be a modern age Double Dragon..

Square Enix Crazy

Square Enix just laid off their President after sales didn't meet their estimated quota. The quotas are insanely high and even though games like Tomb Raider sold a million units it was apparently not good enough. I thought the recent Tomb Raider was a great game and have to wonder if there wasn't something else at play for Square making these odd choices and demanding way too much.
