VVVVVV and Divinity II: Ego Draconis

If you read this blog even occasionally, then you probably know that I'm not much of a PC gamer. However, I do make the occasional exception for certain titles. This evening, one of those special cases found its way into my hardware: VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh.

Although I had planned on doing more in-depth coverage of the game tonight, after some consideration I decided to hold off until I'm completely done. However, I will say that it's a pretty superb little title, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

ADHD RPG

HIGH The final quest is a perfect realization of what Half-Minute Hero is all about.

LOW Any mode not titled Hero 30 seems dialed in.

WTF Did they have to reuse the catfish overlord so many times?

HIGH It's a real JRPG, except it doesn't waste your time.

LOW The Knight 30 mode could have used a little more work.

WTF Why is nobody talking about this game?

Osmos Review

I apologize in advance for any biology-related discrepancies

HIGH Absorbing a big lifeform just slightly smaller than me.

LOW Miscalculating my orbit in the sun levels and dying when I was close to finishing a level.

WTF Shouldn't my lifeform become intelligent at some point after consuming so many others?

Real Heroes: Firefighter Review

The chinchillas are on fire!

HIGH It's a natural fit for the Wiimote, and a great concept.

LOW The graphics are going to be hard to get past for some gamers.

WTF You expect me to risk my life for some chinchillas?

NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits Review

A little bit of myth

HIGH Smartly elegant controls and art design.

LOW The final level is mildly irritating.

WTF Why don't more people know about it?
