I don't have a Wii anymore but just wanna recommend Life Force to people who haven't tried it out. It's a Gradius spin off, but with two players. I loved that game!


And if you have a PSP, may I recommend:
http://www.google.com/products?q=Salamander+Portable

It's import only, but includes all of the Salamander/Lifeforce games...menus are in english, so no problems there. I have it, and love it...

Someone did a mod for Neverwinter Nights based on Dante's Inferno which was quite like the book. You can probably still get it off nwvault.

Here's the chance for something really interesting to be done in the digital medium, and what does EA do with this classic? Turn it into a fucking console shooter.

It's not a shooter, it's a God of War ripoff. Which is just about as bad. They could have made some sort of clever horror/thriller adventure game that actually did justice to the themes and tone of the book but they decided to make a beat 'em up instead.

...a “Muscular Six Foot Knight” Armed With Death’s Scythe.

'It’s here that Dante fights Death himself and steals his magical scythe before plunging into the underworld'

'The game will culminate in Circle 9, presumably with a massive boss fight against Beelzebub himself.'

I thought this had to be a piss-take at first, but it's real. This is why games are considered irrelevant in the larger artistic world.
We'd laugh at this sort of rubbish at the movies, but apparently gamers are much less discerning.

Sure, it's just a game - but it's also an encroachment on the world of serious literature.
EA's approach to difficult creative concepts is to smother them under cliche, chew it all up, and then take a creamy shit and look pleased about it.

Meanwhile the gaming press looks on and aplauds.

Think EA isn't slowly strangulating the creative life out of Bioware?

"We wanted to be able to give people a much more combat-oriented, lighter-story kind of experience," said project director Casey Hudson. "You're going to go to kind of a casino, gaming, fight club space station."

Please, let EA die already!

As usual, the cries of perversion will ring from the rafter whilst no obe bats an eye at the gratuitous violence. I only hope it's a big unit, may as well go for broke here.

Exactly. We have got to break this lock of bondage on sexuality that pervades our Western European-descended culture. That's one thing the Church and religion in general *must* be held accountable for. The pagans had the right idea about the body and its place in nature.

*edit for spelling, of course.
