I also gave the Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 demo a whirl. The supposed retro revival of 2D Sonic games has proved pretty divisive, with some lauding it as a return to form and other grumbling that it's no fun at all. I did not like it. The movement and physics feel all wrong and the targetted attack is naff and no, I cannot play that.
From short games to long games, I'm still making steady progress on my new playthrough of Planescape: Torment. Yesterday I was saying I often get bored of long, "epic" video games but Torment is so very dense and its countless distractions are so interesting that I never feel like I'm drifting aimlessly, even though The Nameless One has very little idea of where he's going and what to do next.
