Who here has played SotC? The guy I'm dating recently bought it, and I watched him play it, being the avid gamer-watcher that I am. Let me just say, I was very impressed with it. It looks like something a beginner gamer (i.e. me--the only video game I've ever played is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time) would be able to play and succeed at while still getting a fun challenge out of it. Also, the shadow characters, when they first appeared, scared the crap out of me, in sort of a "holy crap what is that next to the passed-out main character?!" sort of way.
