Episode Summary

Still Life, Elite Warriors, Spy vs. Spy and more!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review Spy vs. Spy, which is a license that's really loaded with game-crossover potential. The comics chronicle the never-ending struggle between two mortal enemies, one-upping each other in the most outrageous of ways. The game, on the other hand, doesn't one-up much, but at least throws in an arsenal of modes and match types for its tiny price tag.

Going by the gaming industry, Vietnam is the new WWII. Admittedly, after the slew of popular World War II games, Vietnam seems a likely choice to turn to for virtual warfare, but the results have been strangely lackluster. Adding to the list of recent lackluster ‘Nam games is Elite Warriors: Vietnam.

It’s rare that developers create a title specifically designed for the necrophilia. Developer Microids and publisher The Adventure Company are paving new ground with Still Life, a necrophilia dating sim thinly disguised as a point-and-click adventure game. Like most dating sims, Still Life has a lot of buildup leading to a decidedly anticlimactic finale, but there’s no shortage of action on display here--and plenty of naked corpses, too.

Plus, don't miss out on The X-Play Boards song and a Splinter Cell Co-op Theater segment.moreless
