With players barreling through the PC version of Super Meat Boy, Minecraft's main character ("Steve") has been discovered to be ... more or less omnipotent. You could say he breaks the game ... or you could say he's totally boss. We're going with the latter....

Team Meat has cheekily responded to yesterday's PETA Super Tofu Boy parody by announcing that it will add the soy-based protagonist as a downloadable character in the next Super Meat Boy PC patch. The character will only be available on PC, since the XBLA can't be patched in the same fashion. In...

Sure, we appreciate the fact that Team Meat's Super Meat Boy was conveniently downloaded onto our Xbox 360, but that doesn't do much to satisfy our unending urge to lovingly squeeze the game box ever so tightly. At the moment, there's nothing we can do about this (and no, not any old game box would...

You must excuse Team Meat for looking a little loony upon the completion of the duo's Game of the Year contender, Super Meat Boy. "I can't even count the amount of times I had breakdowns and my wife had to convince me that I need to finish the game and I'll be okay," co-CEO Edmund McMillen told Eur...

Need another reason to re-buy Super Meat Boy? Neither did we -- we have plenty already, thanks -- but apparently the forthcoming PC iteration includes another bonus character: Minecraft's main man. A Destructoid tipster spotted Team Meat's Twitter account putting Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Pe...

There was a time when I thought I was pretty good at video games. I've brought down the likes of Earthworm Jim, Rocket Knight Adventures, Ninja Gaiden (2004), Mega Man 9 and many others without much trouble and only the occasional spurt of profanity. Having completed the story (but not nearly all o...

From what we've seen from Team Meat's challenging, retro-inspired XBLA platformer Super Meat Boy, the game's already packed with countless hours of missed jumps and gruesome deaths. Still, that hasn't stifled the developer's lofty plans for expansion -- Team Meat's Edmund McMillen recently explaine...

Trailers are fine, but we're true renaissance men at Joystiq with an appreciation for all forms of artistic expression. That means that in addition to the crass populism of video game trailers, we can also appreciate the refined non-motion of comics about video games. In that vein, we're proud to b...

Yes, the Free Game Club is back -- only for one man would we resurrect this classic feature. While we wait not-so-patiently for Super Meat Boy, creator Edmund McMillen has given us Time Fkuc (yes, all orders of the second word's letters are acceptable) to gnaw on. As with most of McMillen's Flash...

Meat Boy isn't the only fleshbag to make an appearance in Super Meat Boy for WiiWare. Turns out that Braid's Tim will also be an unlockable character. How did these two indie darlings collide and not produce so much heat as to create an insta medium-rare hamburger? Turns out that Super Meat Boy's ...

Uh, wow. This ad for Super Meat Boy, posted by Edmund McMillen on his blog, attempts to market the WiiWare platformer by offending a) vegetarians, and b) everyone else. "Hitler was a vegetarian ..." the ad reads. "Don't be like Hitler." We understand that it can be difficult to make money on WiiWare...

God, we love being right. Remember back in November of 2008 when we told you it was time to get on the Edmund McMillen bus? Well, a teaser site has just been launched for Super Meat Boy (which McMillen co-created), and it's sporting a big, fat WiiWare label. See!? Blowing up! Looks like you'll be ...

Edmund McMillen, creator of indie hits like Gish and Independent Games Festival award nominee Coil, has announced an updated remake of one of his deep cuts, co-created with Jon McEntee: the Newgrounds Flash game Meat Boy, a platformer similar to Metanet's N series, but with more persistent blood d...
