Okami (PS2)

I’ve never got round to play this, but my wife found it on the shelf and started it this morning. Now about ten hours in, I’ve been marvelling at the frankly incredible graphics (really, screenshots and online videos show nothing) and helping out with some hard bits.

Folklore Demo (PS3)

Similar to Heavenly Sword; it looks lovely, but only feels okay to play.

It’s all a bit repetitive, some of the timing is so tight it amounts to luck for a reaction-time-challenged thirty-something like me and you can’t change the camera controls, which are the wrong way round on the x-axis. Nevertheless, I finished one character’s part of the demo and started the second character’s, only to quit out when it started giving me the same tutorial information all over again.
