I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

E3 First Impressions: Papo Y Yo

Posted on Friday, June 10 @ 14:51:48 Eastern by KevinS

When I was told to check out a game titled Papo Y Yo, I honestly figured it would be a comically-impaired twosome like Ren & Stimpy or Toejam & Earl. I thought they would go on a wacky adventure filled with pratfalls and pies to the face. Thank the gods I'm wrong.

Papo Y Yo is inspired by the childhood of its head designer and creator, Vander Caballero. A young boy, a robot and a giant pink monster live in this quasi-real world. Here's where's it takes an interesting turn: The monster is addicted to poisonous frogs (which get him high) and is afraid of the robot. The point is to use that fear to control the monster like a gigantic puppy, get him to move wherever he's needed and solve environmental puzzles. But, if he's high, who knows what'll happen.

The package is far from done, but it's a very cute platformer from a team that's obviously used to working on AAA titles. It's still rough around the edges, so unfortunately I couldn't nab an accurate release date. I hope it comes soon because it looks like an interesting "games as art" experience for everybody.
