Today it's the Chupacabra!
This elusive alien/vampire/homeless man who took a bath in industrial waste seems more popular today than ever before. So farmers lock up your goats, it's suckin' time!
(note to the reader I am aware that he is eating a sheep, even the Chupacabra needs a little variety in his diet).
In more of a video game area of discussion I've been playing the Red Faction "Beta" (really it's just a multi-player demo) and I have to say it's pretty darn good. It's got that Warhawk less weapons more/balance feel to it that is so satisfying. And talk about satisfaction, once you kill a guy with a sledgehammer by busting through the cover he was using it's hard to go back to regular virtual murder. It does feel a tad gimmicky at times as the rest of the game isn't really fleshed out yet, like the fact that there are only two character models in the beta, but it's also quite fun so it's easy to forgive that feeling.
I'll be interested to see how the whole destruction sandbox thing will work out, will Mercenaries do it better? only time will tell!
