Well now here's some good news.  Awhile ago I bought a game called I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1, and yes that's it's actual name, off of XBL's Indie Game Channel after hearing the theme music.  I'm a sucker for twin stick shooters and IMAGWZ, lets keep it simple, is no exception.  Developed by a fella named Jamezilla, IMAGWZ is your typical shooter, point, shoot, highest score wins, repeat, however the theme song seals the deal, it's fan-fucking-tastic.  "I made this game with XNA, it costs a dolluh and I hope you'll pay-e-a-e-a" may not sound so funny when it's simply read out loud but when a drunken mini midget with an eyepatch out for a piece of my heart is singing it, with feeling mind you, it's a hoot, it's a fucking hoot.

As I mentioned the good news is IMAGWZ is currently the number one top seller on the Indie Game Channel with 160,000 reported downloads, making dev Jamezilla a nice $112,000 after Microsoft's cut.  I bought the game based on the merits of the song alone and don't regret it for a second.  I've paid a dollar for way worse crap on iTunes and never touch it again.  This game at least makes me smile every time I hear it and with 4 player local co-op that's four times the smile and that simply can't be beat.

Knowing full well how MS Points linger around pick this up when you get a chance.  Put I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1 on your Live queue.
