When I have the cash i’ll be buying an iPad 2, no shame in that. The first thing i’ll be buying is Sword & Sworcery. I’ve had a good time with Minecraft but this game looks amazing and it still does a number on me with the nostalgic graphics. I guess for any of the haters out there, you really can’t argue the fact some people really love this stuff no matter what the quality.

This is one of those things where I am in awe of the technical achievement but the whole idea behind it makes me want to drive off a cliff in a ’78 Blazer playing Sgt. Pepper’s on 8-track. It’s easy to say John Lennon would be rolling over in his grave if he saw this, but then again time does funny things to people. At any rate, The Beatles have always been idols of mine so this is still a treat, even if it is some cynical alternate reality where they’ve all been recast (two posthumously at that) in their prime as hucksters for some half-assed video game cavorting around with Hollywood-extra hipster stereotypes and generally making my whole childhood feel nauseous.
Anyways, it’s worth a watch as long as you hit stop right around the 22 second mark at which point is devolves into the zombie-mation 3D stylings that are the reason Rock Band makes me cringe. Although it could be worse, far worse.
