It’s really nice when the Indie games get the attention they deserve.  Xbox Live is showing off some of their indie games coming up in what they call the Indie Games Summer Uprising.  The first game that is leading the charge is a game called Raventhorne. Raventhorne is a side scrolling hack and slash kind of game with your basic sword, shield, and magic gameplay. The trailer shows off how the game looks and performs, and it looks to be a pretty sweet deal for only 240 Microsoft Points. Raventhorne is available now in the Indie Games Summer Uprising section of the XBLA marketplace.

Mikey has been living in a country town all his life, and can not wait to break free of the small town enviroment. He is currently working on his Bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems, and works part time for the University. Mikey has been growing up with games in his life since the time he was able to hold a controller. Mikey's favorite thing about video games are the stories that are told through them. To him there is nothing like a tightly woven story where he can escape his real world confinement. He also has an obsession with fighitng games, and it has led him to a lot of losses, but there is something about it that keeps him going. All he knows is that he loves the sound of announcer saying... Round 1, Ready....FIGHT!
