Zenses: Soothing in an angry sort of way

Okay, listen. Just who is responsible for the idea that females -- note, no specification of age or tastes there, just the entire gender -- only like a certain type of game? And why do publishers feel the need to tell us, repeatedly, "ladies, this game's for you?" Perhaps we can't be trusted to make our own decisions about what is and isn't fun. Never mind all those chicks playing Guitar Hero and RPGs and even -- gasp -- first person shooters. If you're female, it's either Imagine Babyz if you're under fifteen, or puzzle games if you're over. That's scientific fact.

So why do I feel so unimpressed by the purportedly-relaxing Zenses: Rainforest? Maybe, unlike Zenses: Ocean, it's not "designed specifically to appeal to females." Either way, this female feels a little more inclined to turn to Puchi Puchi Virus for her dot-connecting needs. Maybe it's the trippy art style. Maybe it's the fact that they're not trying to tell me to like anything (except Disgaea, apparently). Or maybe that's just my personal taste, resulting from an ability to make decisions without being guided in one way or another. Now it's your turn to do the same: check out the screenshots and see if Zenses: Rainforest is up your alley. It does look relaxing, and perhaps worthwhile, now that all the rage and bile is cleared out. See? The relaxation bit is working already.

P.S. You boys can look, too. It's okay. We won't tell.
