Beyond Good and Evil HD screens arrive. Squint and pretend part 2 is here

Upscaledto 1080P, and pimped out with sharper textures and whole bunch of other tweaking and digi-preening that we won't try to explain for fear of having to make things up, they're a perfect way to convince yourself that you actually have a proper current-gen BG&E game wile you wait for a genuine one to turn up. You know, like the way you convince yourself thata closing-time rebound looks just like your ex through a blurred veil of whiskey tears. Let the glorious denial commence!

Desperate denials of deep-seated emotional pain aside though, BG&EHD is very very pretty indeed. In fact this cleaned up version is a great reminder of howfresh and vibrantthe original game's production design really was. Personally I can't wait to give it another play through. How's about you? Looking forward to the new and improved version, or are you one of those heartless puppy-kickers who didn't play it the first time round and now desperately need to? You people need to sort your lives out. You make me sick.

These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
