I’m a big eye-roller. At E3 this year, I’m pretty sure I spent at least half my time rolling my eyes every time I heard anyone say that they were going to “take a game to the next level”, or that their sequel was going to “exceed expectations”. What does any of that even mean? One of the few games that didn’t make me roll my eyes was El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. So that’s what I’m playing this weekend. How about you?
To be honest, I don’t really know what El Shaddai is about. I’m an hour into it and it is one of the most bizarre, aesthetically wonderful, and confusing games I have played so far. But an hour is not a lot, so I’m going to press on with it to see what it has to offer.
How about you? What are you playing this weekend?
