In case you missed it: On Monday, we exposed our own hypocrisy in our discussion of Sleeping Dogs, and yesterday, Darksiders II made us very tired of Zelda clones.
It’s been kind of a lousy “Summer Of Arcade” on the Xbox, hasn’t it? Sure, there was Dust: An Elysian Tail, but then there was also that throwaway Kinect thing (Wreckateer), a Tony Hawk rehash, and the topic of today’s episode, Deadlight. Now, the Kinect business was destined to be a waste of our time, but I can forgive the folks at Microsoft for this one. Deadlight has the look of past Summer Of Arcade gems like Limbo and Shadow Complex. The trouble is, that’s all it’s got.
At least today we’re finally able to fulfill equal-time requirements by giving Soupy The Comment Cat an on-screen cameo. Of course, unbeknown to me, Nipsey struck back by walking into the shot multiple times during the rest of the taping. Thanks for watching this week.
