Katawa Shoujo Released

So, anyone know about the fully free to play dating simulation five years in the making from Four Leaf Studios? The one set in highschool for disabled teenagers in modern Japan?

According to our associate Peorth, many...to the tune of 10GB/Hr on his servers alone. For those that don't why not check it out? It's probably the first of its type starting as the musings of a doujin artist and then taken up at first by those on 4chan, growing into a project from many spanning the whole damn world.

I've been following the genesis of this game for for awhile, though I've lost track over the past couple years. I think I may download it and give it a try given its history. Remember though, this is an eroge, so keep that in mind if you decide to play it.

Dante's Inferno (xBox 360, 2010)

Overview


Damn, looks like he's in the hell of heartburn... While he didn't participate in the Crusades himself, Dante Alighieri the poet was a member of the Guelph cavalry, in the years before he penned the three parts of one of the greatest pieces of literature in the history of the world, the Divine Comedy. This epic consisted of three parts, the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. They described a journey taken by Dante, guided by the Roman poet Virgil, and later his unrequited love Beatrice, as he became lost and misled at the midpoint of his life. He descended through hell, Virgil teaching him about each of the nine rings and some of the inhabitants within, then ascended through purgatory's nine levels and eventually into paradise's nine levels. The poems were unusual in that while they did tell a story, story telling was not their primary purpose. Instead, they served much more as a sort of roadmap to the journey, crafting through word and prose a vision that to this day defines hell, and to a lesser extent purgatory and heaven. That roadmap is the one that Visceral Games decided to illuminate with their own interpretation of Dante's Inferno.

Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC, 2009)

Overview


Never bring a gun to a bat-fight. Batman has been a fixture in the world of DC Comics since he was created in the late 1940's, rising to become one of the trinity pillars of DC's many, MANY superheroes. Dark and brooding, though he has allies in his personal war, Batman has most often stood alone against the criminals that overrun Gotham. His personal rogues gallery includes some of the most colorful figures of villainy ever devised, from the sexy and seductive dryad-like Poison Ivy to Gotham's Crown Prince of Comedy himself, the Joker. Gotham city itself, the protectorate of the dark knight, has grown to become a living, breathing entity over the years, a creature fighting to overcome the sickness trying to devour it. And in all of Gotham, if there's one place that could be called the source of the infection, it would have to be a small island in the middle of Gotham Bay named Arkham Island… the home of Arkham Asylum.

Prey (PC, 2006)

Overview

Prey was a game that caught my eye mainly because it was... everywhere. Best Buy, Target, Walgreen's, hell, I even saw a copy in a little hole-in-the-wall type shop I randomly dropped in on to browse. I picked it up mainly because there wasn't anything else interesting to be found, and they had it on deep discount despite being fairly recent. It looked interesting - the Native American angle is one that few games attempt, and even fewer manage to get right - and it was priced right. The last piece of the puzzle was that it's built on the Doom 3 engine, an engine that - I think at least - has awesome promise to it. I picked up the PC version, and brought it home to give it a shot.
