Game review roundup and an interesting turn of events. Also sackboy.

À la Recherche du Jeux Perdus: La Troisième Partie is in production. I made the n00b mistake of writing it in Blogger rather than in an editor than importing it, so a hasty "Ctrl + z" to undo a sentence deleted a my post. Before I had time to wipe the beer off my mouse, Blogger's autosave had forgotten it for good. When this happens, it is so unbelievably demoralising that starting again is physically painful, so I've been putting it off.

Ethan Mars might have lost a son and a finger, but I'm pretty sure he's never lost a blog post.

There is also other news.

But before we get to that, it's been a while since I updated the GodisaGeek page of my blog, and I've written several reviews since then. They are, in chronological order:

L.A. Noire

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

From Dust

There is also some E3 stuff, nothing you won't know if you're interested in that kind of thing, and a slightly over-zealous runthrough of the Skyrim gameplay demonstration. Could I be more excited about Skyrim?

No. You can cook salmon in this game. Seriously. Salmon.

Futher news.

I have, after the shockingly short period of three months, decided to resign my post as Reviews Editor for GodisaGeek. Loyal readers of Well-Rendered have been so starved of updates and content of late that you may not have realised that this is what I have been doing, but in all honesty I have been doing very little else.

But this is not the reason for my departure. I am just about to start on something which I must devote my full attention to, and it would not be fair to either this new project or GodisaGeek if my attentions were divided. I don't want to talk about it too much at this stage because it's early days yet, but it's very exciting and a major life change.

This blog can be so wanky sometimes.


In other news, the emo-tastic pictures from Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain are due to the fact that Well-Rendered Towers has acquired a PlayStation 3. Of course I love the democratic accessibility of the Xbox, but I can't deny that the PlayStation 3 feels like the sort of console that a grownup plays video games on.

I say that, but then Well-Rendered Towers' other resident (who needs a better nickname, really, but I can't think of one right now) and myself spent an entire weekend using it to dress up Sackpeople in monkey suits and headbang to disco remixes of Beethoven tracks.

What did yuppies do before video game ubiquity?
