@impartialgecko: I was wondering if that was Conor's Manor from AC3. I'm ok with a sort of "greatest hits" of the last two games.

Also: More French accents in this quicklook than in the one that takes place in France.

Well, it's "Connor's Manor" because it is "Connor's Manor". Or more precisely, Achilles' Manor before AC3 takes place. This game is a prequel to AC3, and shows how Achilles went from the leader of a powerful branch of the assassins to the lone, angry old man who mentors Ratonhnhaké:ton/Connor in AC3 (the Connor mentioned in the Quick Look is Achilles' son, who Ratonhnhaké:ton takes his name from).

With all the accusations about of police brutality and racism, it's nice to see games like this showcasing how the police actually operate!

The game is actually called One Upon Light, and was already in the wiki.

Martial artists ripping their clothes when they power up is a decades old anime/manga trope. As for the difficulty, I found concentration mode invaluable and using hope fragments to buy skills from Monomi a great help. I'm not that great of a gamer, but for the most part the "normal" difficulty didn't give me too much trouble.

EDIT: Also Patrick, not that it's a big thing, but Danganronpa actually comes from the Spike side of Spike Chunsoft.

Dan watching Jin-Roh, can't imagine that going well. I mean, it's one of my favorite movies of all time, but it's also very slow and very dense, and I can't imagine it's particularly close to what Dan wants from a movie. A least it's pretty much as far away as you can get from negative stereotypes of anime.

And Patrick said you couldn't do a proper Quick Look of a visual novel!

Dan going all in on the bad ending I see...

@crommi: What, no encouragement to join the Magicka 2 Web Ring? I am disappointed.

The "Sam Raimi" effect is in Xena because Sam Raimi produced the show, and it was full of his trademark touches.
