February 6 - February 13
BioShock was a critical darling, mostly because it sat in Ayn Rand's iron lap, so I'm excited to see how its progeny approaches narrative design.
Less exciting is the addition of competitive multiplayer. There's only so much room in the shooter pool for leggy enthusiasm, which is something these people don't seem to understand. In this case it's akin to building a beautiful, delicate garden ecosystem, and then herding a bunch of functionally illiterate cannibals with flamethrowers into its confines. You can't shut these splicers up: they respawn until mom calls them upstairs for dinner.
Still, I'm confident that the single player experience will be hyper-glorious, and will remain so even as the multiplayer servers turn to dust. T-minus six months! For now, though, a very worthy game of the week.
Dante's Inferno also lands shortly, which is great because we'll no longer be subjected to EA's ridiculous marketing shenanigans.
Finally, I'd like to point out the strangeness of a Scene It title based on the Twilight series. Only two movies have been released to date, which means the game will have a highly limited scope. I imagine the questions must target some incredibly obscure minutia. There is also the dreadful possibility of a sequel one day; a Scene It? Twilight Complete edition that will wear neutered vampires like a stylish cape.
