Life is a Japanese time management game. You actually can't blame Japan for Campus (PC, 2/5), which takes the whole "student life visual novel" style but somehow crams it into an engine resembling Fallout 1 and 2. And I don't think Japan is directly responsible for Long Live The Queen either (PC, 3/5), though it rocks the whole moe animu visual novel style. Tempting to compare it to Princess Maker, but it's really a different type of game, and packed with adorable deaths.

♫ Swords ... and tequila ... will carry us through the update! ♫ Today we have Brutal Legend (PC, 4/5), rockin' paean to an era that I was just a *little* too young for ... I did like Def Leppard when I was like 8 though. We also have the very obscure Gooka 2: Mystery of Janatris (PC, 3/5), an odd adventure-RPG hybrid based on a fantasy novel series that's big in Czechoslovakia. I can't say it ties in with the metal theme in any way, other than that you're swinging medieval weaponry around and some of the characters look like they could be heshers.

Kicking off the new year with FULL SCREEN ANIMATION!!! The Last Express (3/5) and Jack Orlando (2/5) both went hard with the presentation but left something to be desired in the gameplay. Both are adventure games for PC.
