The PC game Omikron: The Nomad Soul is one of my all time favoritism games, not only did it feature David Bowie and a whole soundtrack of unique Bowie songs, it still ranks as one of the best multi genre games available. Blending Adventure, fighting, RPG, FPS elements, the game had a unique body swapping ability it just reeked awesomeness.
When I heard years ago Quantic Dream were making another game I immediately took notice. Unfortunately they have dropped the PC version (my fav platform) and made it a PS3 exclusive making it one of the most anticipated PS3 games waiting for release.
The tag line for the game goes: How Far Will You Go To Save Someone You Love? and promises to play like the ultimate movie – where you are part of the action.
