Diabolical Pitch is a rather strange and quirky Kinect game made by Grasshopper Manufacture. The title has you pitching fastballs at various doll enemies as they try to kill you. Think of it as more of an advanced shooting gallery, but instead of using a gun, you have to pitch baseballs at targets and collect as many points as possible.
Sine Mora is developed by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture and based in a Diesel Punk world. The game is based in a 2D/3D world that is under threat from Ronotra Koss who is going to destroy the world through mass genocide. He’s kidnapped a young girl who is of great importance and you need to stop him before he destroys everything.
Journey is the fourth game from thatgamecompany. They’re a relatively small studio, but their size shows no limits. They put their time and efforts into making a game experience that is quite unique and offers plenty of emotion and connection with their player. Their titles always have a pick up and play aspect as well, so you won’t have to spend much time with one of their titles to earn how it works. Journey is an extremely good example of this, as it should only take you a few minutes to find out what to do, and what your goal is.
Journey starts by introducing you to a cloaked character sitting in the middle of a desert. You're then quickly shown a mountain, which quickly become apparent that your goal is to reach the summit. You have the options to play offline, alone or online with a partner. There is no real communication other than the musical noises that your character produces. You will experience several different areas as you make your journey to the mountain.
Bloodforge starts out by introducing you to Crom, a warrior that turned his back on battle and set out to lead a quiet life with his wife. While Crom makes his way home with food, he stops to rest. As he sleeps he experiences a nightmare like no other. He experiences a vision like no other, which leads to wake and find that his village is nothing more than a fiery ruin.

Dark Souls is the follow up title to Demon's Souls. This title comes with a rather harsh title of prepare to die. Though this is somewhat true, once you learn how the game plays and how to tackle each enemy type you will die far less. You will get to craft your own experience from character creation and play style, but you will also create your own adventure. You don't need to explore or complete everything the same was as everyone else does, but there is a narrative path which you need to follow to reach the end.
You find yourself trapped in a cell where a knight drops a body down from a hole in the ceiling. From here your adventure starts. From here you need to escape the Asylum and reach the Firelink Shrine. After arriving at the shrine you're now going to need to face your demons and the perils of this world to find the true answer to your quest.
If you're a returning member to the games series you will find that this chapter returns you to where the series began on Eden Prime. Though this is chapter is short, it does provide you with some extra back-story and a new squad member.

So it’s been a bumpy week for us. We had a few database issues, and a few odd things didn’t work with the site as intended. I have managed to fix all the really glaring issues, but there are still a few out there. Most of which you won’t notice as it’s just odd tweaks that need to be addressed.…

Some guides won’t display the overview info correctly, or may not have any at all. This is something that will take time to correct, but…
