Just a quick note to point you to two new updates to previously reviewed games that you might want to know about: Amateur Surgeon and Bow Street Runner.
- Act 2 of Alan Probe: Amateur Surgeon is now available to play from the folks at Adult Swim. Amateur Surgeon is a cartoonish and casually offensive simon-says-surgery game. Your job is to follow the exact requirements of each surgery as quickly and as accurately as possible. The game has great production values, bright, detailed environments and an ever-present sense of self-conscious irony. The violence is so over-the-top that it's not really gross, and there's still plenty of comically intense moments to go around.
- Episode 2 of Bow Street Runner is now available to play from Channel 4 in the UK. Bow Street Runner is a mystery adventure series set in London's Covent Garden in the 1750s. Crime in the city has risen to such a level that local magistrates were forced to take action. The Bow Street Runners were born, created to instill order in the increasingly crime-ridden city. It's a dark and historically accurate journey through old London, presented with live actors, voice narration and full motion video for an impressive cinematic experience.
