Didn’t play much last night, because I went out to the cinema to see Paranormal Activity. It scared me witless at the time – I believe I may even have screamed a couple of times and I never, ever do that – but luckily for me the fear faded with the adrenaline. My wife’s still freaked out, though, so I’m trying my best to look after her by emphasising the normality of things and how there aren’t really any nasty things that go bump in the night. (Except the cat, obviously.)

Still, I’ve advanced some way in the story of Hills and Rivers Remain and have tested out Free Play mode a bit more. I think to get fun out of it I’ll have to work out the best settings – on Normal with one enemy you can simply put your headquarters next to theirs and wipe them out before the game even really starts.
