I have not read the Penny Dreadful story of Sweeney Todd, nor have I seen the 2007 movie, but if this game is in any indication of might be awaiting me in the other forms of media that have taken on the retelling of this grisly tale, then they might be worth a look.

This game features some of the music from stage production, and it does a good job of telling the story through interludes between your basic detective HMO gaming. Some of the hidden object puzzles are not for the squeamish, as they sometimes contain what might be body parts or other kinds of human remains. Yeah, 19th Century London, gotta love it! I do like the fact that you are given access to a real help log/walkthrough when you get stuck, and being able to map travel through the city helps cut out much of the go get this thing to open this puzzling lock on the other side of the street/river/lake, etc. The areas are more localized, and your log book will also help you out when you might get lost.

As a casual game player, I just can’t stand it when I want to try out a new game, only to find out that it is a sequel to a previous game I had never heard of. Such was the case with Secrets of the Dark: Eclipse Mountain

We are in Thailand on some kind of adventure with our friend, someone we’ve gone on quests with before, when a local legend about an ill-fated demon comes back from its stony prison to exact revenge. It turns out, and this I did not know, you and your questing buddy have been through this kind of supernatural trial before on the other side of the world in Mexico. There are special secrets to be found by simply bending light and shadows, and as the Barenaked Ladies said, “It’s All Been Done”

Darkwatch is vampire first person shooter game and fun to play. In this game, you are playing as Jericho Cross. In this game, you can be good or evil. I never played as evil. I always play as good. Good always win against evil. The story about this game is about Outlaw who was go train robbing. He didn’t know what was on the train. So instead, he got bitten by vampire name Lazarus Malkoth. Jericho is got to join the Darkwatch and kill Lazarus once for all. This game is based on a Heavy Metal comic book. I know Heavy Metal comics are very messed up stories as hell. I haven’t read Darkwatch comic and probably will not read it.

A Simple Wish 1997 Bluray Front CoverA simple tale of a child wish this is not. This film is a story of Anabel and her love for her father, Oliver. She wants nothing for herself other than that her father gets the role that he has always wanted so that they can stay in New York City. Her father would like nothing better than to do that both for himself and his kids. So, in between auditions for operatic roles he spends his time as a carriage driver in Central Park. The only thing, at least in this film, getting in his way is a inept and bumbling fairy godmother, named Murry?
