Little Shop of Horrors. Been listening to the isolated music track.

Spent a couple of hours with it over the weekend. Very strong contender for game of the year. We'll see how the later levels shape up, but if it maintains the epicness of the first two chapters, it will probably dethrone Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect 2.

Dimwitted wrote:What's The Treatment and is that Gabe Byrne?

It's an HBO adaptation of an Israeli TV series format in which we spend an hour-long session with each of several recurring patients for a few weeks seeking therapy from a shrink (Byrne), who also has his own session with a separate therapist (Dianne Wiest). It's basically actor's showcase time and each season (and session) thrives or dies on the casting of the actors playing the patients, and how their acting/pathos interacts with Byrne's (who is the thread holding "In Treatment" together). For info about the casts of each of the three HBO seasons to date (including the one that premieres next week) go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Treatment (spoilers for the plot developments in the descriptions, but you can glance at the casts from a distance and skip-read the specific seasons).
