|*not my son's actual x-ray.|
Games: Currently, I'm playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 on PS3.
I’m also playing Inazuma Eleven, which is (for serious) a JRPG involving characters trying to rebuild their second-rate school soccer team, so all of the random battles and bosses are about actually playing soccer.
This may seem like a really bizarre pick for someone with my tastes (I’m sick of traditional JRPGs and I’m no sports fan) but it’s so interesting and different that I couldn't help but check it out.
My good friend @Apricotsushi has chosen March to be MonMonth, and I have to say that she's picked a fine genre to celebrate. Click on over to her blog for more details on hunting monsters, community-style.
|Those teeth. Those goddamned teeth.|
Anyway, are you going to celebrate MonMonth, or are you playing along in Freedom Unite right now? Post a message and let me know!
The updated and expanded Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic "point and click thriller" centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face intriguing puzzles and tough decisions that will affect their entire crew's wellbeing. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide.
Deconstructeam and Devolver Digital will have different playable scenarios available to demo at SXSW Gaming in Austin, Rezzed in Birmingham, and PAX East in Boston through the spring leading up to the launch in June. Fans unable to visit these shows can try the original game jam at godswillbewatching.com. and follow development via Twitter @Deconstructeam.

In Resident Evil 4, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission to rescue the U.S. President’s daughter who has been kidnapped. Finding his way to a rural village in Europe, he faces new threats that are a departure from the traditional lumbering zombie enemies of the earlier installments in the series. Leon battles horrific new creatures infested by a new threat called Las Plagas and faces off against an aggressive group of enemies including mind-controlled villagers that are tied to Los Illuminados, the mysterious cult which is behind the abduction.
