Championed by many in the press as the prettiest game on Wii, The Conduit truly is the belle of the ball. Journos paw at her silky framerate. They ogle her depth of field. Little bits of their slobber fleck her real-time shadows, particle effects, bump mapping and hi-res textures. But they don’t get to know her.
Hey you! This isn’t a warm, squishy top ten list for you to read between coffee breaks and fun. This is a lifestyle, and it’s better than the one you already have. Print out this list and put it next to your TV. Also, put it in the bathroom, tape it to the back of your girlfriend, hide one where you least suspect it and get a tiny version to tape to the inside of your sunglasses.
Fighting ghosts by taking photos of them in the Fatal Frame games was pretty novel, we’ll admit.

Oh dear. We’re only one sentence into KORE’s accompanying PR prattle and we’ve already found a ‘kooky’, an ‘insane’ and a – gulp – ‘zany’. The alarm bells skip ‘going off’ and go straight to ‘explode’. The item bringing out these most dreaded of adjectives? That would be the titular KORE vehicles/suits. Think Mario meets mechs and you’re nearly
Fable II is all sorts of incredible. There's plenty to astound and amaze, but there's one easy-to-overlook feature that has really impressed us. The dog. He's loveable, he's faithful and, if you treat him right, he's useful too. But if Peter Molyneux hadn't done such a fine job highlighting the brilliance of Fable II's pooch, would we even have noticed?
And that got us thinking. What other features haven’t been
We know we’re supposed to be morally outraged at the incredibly sexist idea of a game in which bikini-clad ladies hack away at swarms of zombies. We get that. But you know what? Most of us here really LIKE girls in bikinis (and schoolgirl outfits). And we love zombies. So, you put those two together and add in some samurai swords, and we’re there, outraged or not.
We've all been stuck talking to that guy. You know him. He subscribes to Famitsu, only plays imports and claims he can decipher the extra-terrestrial scrawlings of kanji. He's the Japanophile and he treats other gamers with contempt. He's a pain in the ass. But now you can bend his kazoo out of shape with our Bluffer's Guide to Japanese Gaming.
