July's Observations... (part 2)

Hmm, I've come to the conclusion that PC gaming - whilst certainly not dead - isn't in the healthiest creative state right now. Currently the only "commercial" game in production that looks even vaguely interesting is the weapon-less first-person horror adventure by Penumbra bods Frictional, entitled Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

I'm convinced that Frictional are Thief fans. Good start. Shame that Thief 4 will likely be a streamlined, console-friendly shadow (ho ho) of its illustrious predecessors, and that no-one is making System Shock 3... or any other dungeon crawlers for PC, for that matter.

Oh yeah, oops, back to music...
