Happy New Year everybody! Smell that fresh January smell. It smells like, well, yesterday. I guess I can’t expect everything to change that drastically. Onwards to game releases. This week, we’ve got exactly what we had last week. Bupkis. What were you expecting? Half Life 3? Don’t worry folks. I won’t bore you with clips from Mythbusters like I did last year. This time, I came up with an ingenious idea to stroke my already enormous ego with my new segment, That Handsome Coming Soon Author Fellow Was Right. Too much? I’ll think up of a new title later.
There’s something hypnotic about a Rube Goldberg contraption. The way one little event like a falling ball bearing or a tipping of a domino can cause a chain reaction to something bigger and more spectacular never ceases to amaze me. In Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, that joyful aspect is really just the icing on top of a much more satisfying cake that is the story and characters of the game.
