When Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture teamed up for Sine Mora, the results were something special. I'm hopeful the duo can pull out another solid release with Black Knight Sword, debuting very soon on Xbox Live Arcade: December 12, 2012.

Either I've lost track of the game, or there hasn't been a whole lot said about it from either studio. Although this is probably more of a niche title, there's some cause for concern in that respect. Maurice once compared it to Strider on acid which, combined with the art style, seems like it could be frightening. Seems worth a look, regardless.

Way back in April, we first heard about Uncanny Valley, and we all had a nice juvenile moment of pointing and snickering at pixelated medical diagrams of human genitalia. The trailer also showed slightly less funny stuff: da...more
