I'll agree with that. I thought the animations were pretty impressive considering the limited sprites/space available. I wasn't knocking the effort, I just meant that it doesn't make the game anymore fun.

I agree that Kotaku is awful, but it's the only consolidated video game news source I'm aware of. The other sites only catch about 50% of the VG news.

I can see people not mentioning SPP though... all of her attacks and powers are emotion-based, so she's essentially using p.m.s. as a super power. Which I think is awesome, but some ladies might get upset over.

Expect a prototype for Block of Wood Man sometime in 2014.
