    Through the Eyes of a Child with Among the Sleep 

    Here’s one sure to tickle the Squad’s fancy: a first-person horror adventure in which the player takes on the role of a two year old child.

      Mother of mercy does this look fun.

      Looks great, doesn’t it? I love the idea of games told from unusual perspectives. There’s a great interactive fiction/text adventure title called Child’s Play where you play a toddler, and it’s very cleverly done.

    I gave in to my hang-ups with potential performance issues and bought Parallels 6 for Mac for $40 (yay for student discounts!) last night. It took just under an hour to install and update Windows XP; an act which provided me with 2 fruitless Saturdays filled with Boot Camp failures. It works beautifully. Now I just have to start installing games and see how it runs them. If all goes well, I’ll go into full-on gush mode when I’m playing the Witcher and Planescape: Torment in splendiferous succession.

    If you consider that the 3DS’s competition is arguably the iPod Touch ($299 for the 32GB model), the price seems fair UNTIL you realize that it’s a Nintendo product. This means we’re guaranteed to re-purchase every game we bought in the past and be left with an antiquated online store and multi-player experience. Pass.

    @zegolf Thanks for the heads-up on the Gamers Gate sale. Now that the Mac version of Dragon Age is getting more DLC love, I can finally grab it on Saturday. It’ll play a very large role in helping me forget last weekend’s boot camp fiasco.

    @feenwager I did that after installing all of the SP2 updates. I then tried to update to SP3 but it gave me some bogus thing about not having enough space to install it (after later research, I discovered that I had to perform a registry edit to make it work).

    Anyway, after rebooting to Windows, none of my USB ports worked. Lame.

    I’m buying Scott Pilgrim on the 360 this week. Did all of my Canuck buddies already pick it up for the PS3? Hopefully not ’cause I need a guided tour through the salty streets of grimy Toronto. I hear that place is seedier then a blackberry.

    @feenwager I should have boot camp up and running this weekend so I can join in on the PC action, too. I don’t want to be one of those assholes who’s always bitching about why nothing’s on Mac when there’s a perfectly viable option built right into OS X. You know the type, right?

    Idle Thumbs is apparently kaput once more since a show regular is relocating to Boston. Major, major drag especially now that I’m back to my 2 hour daily commute again.

    @feenwager I agree with @zegolf. I just bought the Witcher, too, so I have to do it. It’s my duty.

    @feenwager No reason not to do it. Especially considering the paltry selection of Steam games on the mac. I have a Windows XP SP3 running on mine. 32GB is plenty of space for The Witcher, half the valve games and Beat Hazard.

    I am now the owner of a new iMac. I totally get what the fuss is all about. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed using a computer.

    Scratch my idea for buying the Mac version of DA:O. It looks like none of the expansions are being released for it. No worries. Boot camp to the rescue.

    @bowlisimo Thanks for pointing out the only selling point that really matters.

    That GamersGate sale is triple-dipped in caramel. It’s the perfect time for me to pick up Dragon Age: Origins on the Mac ($20!) and play it as it was originally intended.

    I’ll also grab the Witcher and just boot camp it. Surely it’ll run fine on my new iMac.

    Man, I also still have my copy of Never Winter Nights 2 just waiting for a rig to do it justice. God I love PC RPGs…and being able to play ’em.
