A fantastic but tad short horror visual novel. It has a truly fantastic and emotionaly charged story as well as very disturbing, downright terrifying, and twisted subject matter all throughout. Seriously, this is not for the squeamish and features eroge scenes as well, which means erotic scenes. You have been warned. But if none of that bothers you, this truly is an outstanding title for anyone who likes both horror and visual novels.
Now I know this is an unpopular opinion, but Alan Wake on Switch, from my experience in handheld with it, is a perfectly enjoyable and well written horror game which, I'm going to say it, despite its obvious visual downgrades, still looks great at times (and yes, terrible at other times). It runs just fine, it plays great, it moves at a fantastic pace, and its story is always a joy to return to.

Exciting news - GAMACHE / BURY YOUR DEAD guided tour of Quebec City is now available exclusively through Marie Legroulx her new website will be live soon; but in the meantime, for tickets and further information contact her via email email@example.com The good people of the Literary and Historical Society (Morrin Centre) are also onboard. Bon voyage et Vive Gamache! Publishers Weekly At the start of Agatha-winner Penny's moving and powerful sixth Chief Insp. Armand Gamache mystery (after 2009's The Brutal Telling), Gamache is recovering from a physical and emotional trauma, the exact nature of which isn't immediately disclosed, in Québec City. When the body of Augustin Renaud, an eccentric who'd spent his life searching for the burial site of Samuel de Champlain, Québec's founder, turns up in the basement of the Literary and Historical Society, Gamache reluctantly gets involved in the murder inquiry. Meanwhile, Gamache dispatches his longtime colleague, Insp. Jean Guy Beauvoir, to the quiet town of Three Pines to revisit the case supposedly resolved at the end of the previous book. Few writers in any genre can match Penny's ability to combine heartbreak and hope in the same scene. Increasingly ambitious in her plotting, she continues to create characters readers would want to meet in real life. People Magazine (4 out of 4 stars) 'editor's pick'! Her beautifully elegiac sixth book interweaves three story lines while plumbing the depths of Gamache's grief. The result is sophisticated and moving - her best yet. Booklist Penny’s first five crime novels in her Armand Gamache series have all been outstanding, but her latest is the best yet, a true tour de force of storytelling….Penny hits every note perfectly in what is one of the most elaborately constructed and remarkably moving mysteries in years. Kirkus Review Gamache's excruciating grief over a wrong decision, Beauvoir's softening toward the unconventional, a plot twist so unexpected it's chilling, and a description of Québec intriguing enough to make you book your next vacation there, all add up to a superior read. Bring on the awards. Library Journal Superb...brilliantly provocative and will appeal to fans of literary fiction, as well as to mystery lovers. BookPage, in the US, had named BURY YOUR DEAD their Mystery of the Month for October Bury Your Dead has received more pre-release praise than any suspense novel in recent memory; I was a little skeptical at first, but I am here to tell you that itis well deserving of every word. And then some! Toronto Globe and Mail . . . Louise Penny’s portrait of Quebec City is as lovingly detailed and evocative as anything she has written, and her control over this intricate blending of history and mystery is absolute. Furthermore, the deepening of Gamache’s character is profoundly satisfying. The book, obviously, is a must-read for her fans, and demonstrates once again that she is in the first rank of crime-fiction writers in Canada, or indeed, in the world.
Tangled Web, UK, Bernard Knight Surete Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is in danger of turning into a latter-day Hercule Poirot....The writing is superb. A magnificent read. The Calgary Herald, Joanne Sasvari A wonderfully quirky, beautifully written story set amid the eccentric residents of charming Three Pines, Quebec. With DEAD COLD Penny has firmly established herself among the best in Canadian crime fiction....Like all the best Canadian fiction, DEAD COLD is a brilliant evocation of place. And like Gamache, you too will be drawn to Three Pines and to this work of magical realism masquerading as a cosy English mystery. The Globe and Mail, Margaret Cannon A beautifully crafted Christmas cracker of a novel. We're back in the charming Quebec village of Three Pines....The setting is wonderfully done, as are the characters. The solution is perfectly in tune with their psychology and there's plenty of evidence that Gamache will make a third appearance. The Halifax Chronicle Herald, Paul Fiander Louise Penny stunned the crime fiction world last year with STILL LIFE....Sooner or later the whole world will discover Penny. With a unique sense of timing, patience and subtle wit, Penny is able to create a whodunit that recalls those of Agatha Christie....Magically bringing the postcard village of Three Pines to life, she gives it innocence, allows a touch of evil to intrude and then brings in the outsider, the intriguing Gamache, to solve the crime. CrimeSquad.com, UK The plots against Gamache made me feel like a pantomime audience shouting 'look behind you', while the unsympathetic characters are so vividly drawn that they, in turn, provoked sotto voce boos... (A five star review) The Sherbrooke Record, Jim Napier DEAD COLD is a richer, darker book, with humour and a sub-plot that builds on relationships only hinted at in her debut novel. The result is an engrossing read that will only add to the ranks of her readers.
The London Times, Marcel Berlins An impressive debut novel…Penny writes with intelligence and subtlety….the result is a first novel promising much enjoyment to come. DearReader.com, Suzanne Beecher A wonderful murder mystery. Shelf Awareness, Marilyn Dahl Louise Penny has written an extremely satisfying mystery, one that will please on many levels…this book touches the heart while engaging the mind. Miss Jane Neal kept a well-read book on her nightstand, C.S. Lewis' Surprised by Joy. That title is a fitting phrase for Still Life. Aunt Agatha's Bookstore, Ann Arbour, Robin Agnew This is an elegantly written, compelling, and masterful first novel. If I were a betting woman I'd advise anyone interested in such things to lay aside a first edition; I plan to myself…If there is a more perfect novel written this year, I would be very much surprised. The Toronto Globe and Mail, Margaret Cannon Ever since Agatha Christie, we long for that perfect village that is touched by death. Three Pines delivers. Toronto Star, Jack Batten A delightful and clever collection of false leads, red herrings, meditations on human nature, strange behavior and other diverting stuff. The Calgary Herald, Joanne Sasvari, This is a much darker, cleverer, funnier and, finally, more hopeful novel than even the great Dame Agatha could have penned. It's light, witty and poignant, a thrilling debut from a new Canadian crime writer.
