...I heard Koudelka was in this topic, so I had to jump in. :D
I bought it a while back. Only played a bit, but it was certainly an interesting game. I liked the battle system. I remember having a bit of a problem with the voice acting, though (since when do the Welsh talk with American accents? ;D). The very fact that the game is set in Aberystwyth (a town I'm familiar with, being from Wales) peaked my interest. I definitely want to give it a good crack one day. I completed the sequel, Shadow Hearts, not long ago.
That Trapt game sounds pretty cool, if a bit problematic. Might check it out at some point.
Great idea for a blog series. Hope you stick with it.
