...an asterisk.

WTE? A flower-like asterisk? What, then, exactly, is a Flower Princess?

She's a metaphor for the atomic bomb.

I remember reading that that is a Braid reference, but I will refrain from requesting elaboration, as I have only played the demo here.

I suggest you get that game, too. The game is a lot more interesting beyond the demo.

Its not the metaphor for the Atomic Bomb that is a Braid reference, its the "The Princess is in Another Castle" that's the Braid reference.

You should play Braid, its a lot of fun, but its less about pixel perfect timing, as figuring out how to use time to your advantage

I have so many games on my to-do list (and on my "I need to get my parents' money's worth outta these" list) -- heck, World of Goo's been unfinished since the Humble Indie Bundle -- that I can hold out on braid, though it's on my radar. It it goes rock-bottom (or at least five bucks), then I'll be tempted, should I have the funds to cover it.

No, the Atomic Bomb bit is the Braid reference. 'Your Princess is in Another Castle' is a mutual Mario reference.

Oh yeah! Back to the NES days, eh? I forgot about those, anything older than 10 years just completely slips my mind. :s I also just played through Braid again, I must have missed that quote from Oppenheimer last time.

Regardless, Both SMB, Braid, and Eversion are fantastic, get a copy of all of them!

1) Super Meat Boy.
2) (both (SMB) (Braid) (Eversion)), not ((both SMB) (Braid) (Eversion)).

I'm not sure what you are trying to say in point #2, but if it's supposed to be pointing out that I used the word "both" then listed three things, I realise now that I was wrong, and I'm sorry. Can we be friends again?

Actually, by SMB, I meant Super Mario Brothers, as the guy was talking about in the post above.

I realise that Super Mario Brothers for the NES is not available on steam, but you could get a full-price copy of Super Mario All-Stars for the wii, if your stupid, because its a 20 year old game and they are re-releasing it verbatim, with no changes or improvements and people will pay for it. Crazy.
Where was I? off topic....
Yeah, sorry for the confusion, but to clarify, when I said SMB after that other guy mentioned Mario, I meant "Super Mario Brothers". I thought that SMB was a common abbreviation for Super Mario Brothers, and I completely forgot about the great game Super Meat Boy, which has the same initials.
Incidentally, Super Meat Boy is awesome, and if you like brutally difficult platformers (which I assume you do, because your reading this forum), then you'll love it.
