So I'm going to try and get to bed super-early tonight. Why? Tomorrow is, quite possibly, the biggest gaming day of the year. Two of my most hotly anticipated titles will be release simultaneously
, filling me with more gaming pleasure than I can probably stand. First up is Shank, which was nicely reviewed on the front page
by one Nick Chester. Ever since I witnessed it in all its cartoony glory at PAX Prime last year, I've waited not-so-patiently to try out the whole shebang. Alongside that is Scott Pilgrim: The Game. As a massive fan of the comics and movie (the movie's better *audience gasps*), this game is like a fucking dream project to see in motion. Both games are frantic, gorgeous, top-notch brawlers, and both will take my attention away from any PAX planning and real-world activities for at least 24 hours. Anyone else looking forward to possibly the two greatest games of the year tomorrow?
