The Sinking City looks like one of those hidden-gems obscure titles with very unique experience, Dreamcast-ish if you may 8) . I was surprised Gamespot gave it 3/10 but IGN 7.8/10 . For some reason and for years Gamespot always gave lower scores than IGN, its like they agreed on it.

I can't imagine how the developers feel after working hard for a couple of years on a game only to get a review telling you it basically sucks.

Wow. I was not expecting that. It kind of looks like Magical Melody. I actually prefer the chibi style to the drawn anime look.
I wonder what it'll be called if it releases here. The whole natsume/marvelous split kind of screwed things up.

Just finished American McGee's Alice on PS3. Its like a B-movie, its so bad its good. Its a bit sad seeing they had some creative ideas, I could see how this easily been on par with something like Banjo Kazooie. For every good thing they had, there is a bad that counters it. Maybe the PC version faired better. Can't believe they made a sequel given the first one didn't really have much of an impact.

I always get a nice feeling and sense of accomplishment when I am done with a game I always wanted to play, usually for years. Well, off to Metro Last Light.

It's probably going to be under the "Story of Seasons" name, but it's hard to tell. The main thing that puts me off is that they redid the portraits when you talk to characters, and I really like the way everybody looks in the original. That is not the version of Karen I fell in love with.

So far Metro Last Light feels more like an interactive movie than a game

My daughter was in my game room by herself for awhile. Made a stack of her favorite games. Interesting taste.

I really wish that Switch Jeopardy was better than it is. :\

I see lots of Kirby and Sonic, so her taste is just fine.

Agreed. I enjoy this very much. That Binary Land, though. Sick taste.
