Re: What are you playing right now?

I liked that video - DS has really shaped the gaming zeitgeist (am I using that right?). I'm looking forward to all the games that attempt to copy it over the next few years - hopefully it will inform the indie scene too.

I played a bit of Little Inferno last night. It is quirky and fun. The basic mechanics are that you set fire to various bits and pieces you order from a catalogue, and these then reward you with cash, with which you can order more. You are given combo targets, eg Timebomb, where you combine an alarm clock and a mini nuke, for example. Burning stuff unlocks more catalogues and combos. It's a puzzle game, basically. The burning effects are quite good.
