Dick McVengeance has been clamoring for a fleshed-out trailer for the upcoming, PS3-exclusive Folklore, and I hope that his hunger has been satiated.
In the above trailer, we get a look at Ellen and Keats, the game's protagonists. In short, Ellen goes to the mystical village of Doolin to find her dead mother, while Keats, a reporter, goes there to investigate the paranormal goings on in the "realm of the dead."
While the trailer does a good job of handling the mise en scène, I want to know about the soul-sucking function. There's no point in touting a new game mechanic that brilliantly incorporates the Sixaxis' motion-sensing capabilities if we don't know why to use it. I know it allows you to "capture" your enemies, but what does that really mean? I want to know how it fits into the overall narrative.
My thematic quandaries aside, Folklore looks amazing. It's detailed, fluid, colorful, and wonderfully voiced. Personally, I was reminded more of Stardust and Willow than Final Fantasy, and that's certainly not a bad thing.
Is this climbing up you guys' DO WANT list like it is mine?

Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(KnickKnackMyWack Younger me would be so disappointed in the gamer I am today. When did I stop finishing games?

Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.Gamemaniac3434 It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 totalDr Mel My mustache froze while walking home from work.
