Heavy Rain Review

Wait... Why Did He... That Doesn't Make Any... Uggghhhhhh...

HIGH The Saw-esque anticipation of something horrifying.

LOW The weak, head-scratching reveal of the murderer's identity.

WTF The install screen that made me bitterly regret never learning how to properly fold a paper airplane.

Dante's Inferno: The Dark Forest Review

Visceral's Own Aokigahara

HIGH It's free!

LOW It's still not even worth the HD space it's written on.

WTF So Dante fought his fiercest foes before he even stepped foot into Hell?

The sincerest form of flattery

Dante's Inferno  Art

I'm currently making my way through the end of Dante's Inferno on the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and I find myself enjoying the port much more than I thought I would. As a portable conversion of the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and 360 title, the PSP game impresses: There are audio problems in the CG sequences and some formerly playable sequences (none of them too important or sizable) have been changed to pre-rendered film, but on the whole it's about as detailed and playable a port of a full-sized, current-generation game as one could hope for.

Emerald City Comicon, Kirby Krackle Performs, Risen and Heavy Choices

Emerald City  ComiCon

This weekend is the Emerald City ComiCon, taking place at the Washington State Convention Center this Saturday and Sunday. The convention just keeps getting bigger and better, and this year there are a whole lot of guests and events happening besides the usual avalanche of comics, toys, games, and so on.

Sony has debuted its motion-controller called the PlayStation Move. What do you think?

Looks interesting.

Darwinia+, Heavy Rain and Risen

Finally, I had originally intended on writing a fairly lengthy post about Heavy Rain, but I've decided against it for a couple of reasons. However, the official review will be done by Richard Naik, so it's definitely in good hands. However, there are two bits I'd like to mention.

Topatoi: Pillar of the Skies Review

The Rest of the Story

HIGH The simple joys of physics sans frustration.

LOW The one occasion where I had to precisely propel a block over a chasm to hit a button. Most certainly not sans frustration.

WTF Dealing with most enemies by sitting just below them as they enthusiastically rocketed themselves over my head and into open sky.

Dante's Inferno Review

HIGH Pinning hordes of demons down under a merciless barrage of incandescent crucifixes.

LOW Slogging through the repetitious "trials" of Fraud.

WTF A draw between the giant flaming anuses of Gluttony and Lucifer's huge, physics enabled penis.
