You've found some quirky, intriguing PC titles that have at least made me interested enough to read more about with this and The Cat Lady. If only I either had more time...or fewer games in my backlog, which is up to roughly 30 if you just count recent/modern gen systems (PS2, 360, Wii, 3DS).

I mean, just the way you described it, which was a very inventive way to essentially say the game does its best to defy logical description, makes me interested as hell.

I found it incredibly tough to review The Stanley Parable, and yet you made it look so damn easy. Great piece here - you sell what makes the title work while keeping spoilers at a minimum. That it's also sharply written and amusing is just plain annoying. Jealous!

I've been wanting to buy this game and give it a try and review it here. I was just waiting for a great Steam sale. Now I don't have an excuse to spend money on the game, since you've done such a good job of covering it. I may have to resort to buying it just for the heck of it...

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Rob: I would heavily suggest that you make time, in your case especially for The Cat Lady. It might be a nice reminder for you about when horror games had, you know, horror in them. I guess its games like TCL and Stanley Parable thatís helped me turn my back on the console fare for now because there are so many creative titles that simply are not pretty or Ďmainstreamí enough to have console releases just falling through the cracks on the PC that itís insane.

Thank you, all, of your kind words. I had a blast writing this one, but was a little worried it wouldnít really work. You should still pick this up, Jason, and give it a review. It would be interesting to see how you would write about it. Link me in to yours, Ben. Iím sure itís fine, but in case itís not, Iím still bitter about FIFA and can use this as revenge fuel.

This review IS awesome. I purchased based solely off of it. Well, and the trailer... but only because the trailer lived up to the review.

Very cool review, Gary. I'm looking to buy it now, thanks to you.

Thank you both. Do let me know how you get on with the game should you each pick it up.
