Good news from The Ward

Can there ever be good news from the insane asylum? Only if it's coupled with news of a worthwhile gaming experience, and it looks like that just might be the case with Renegade Kid's Dementium: The Ward. Our evil masters at Joystiq got a little facetime with the shooter at E3, and they only had good things to say on the subject.

The controls are smooth, says Alexander Silwinski, and certainly reminiscent of Metroid Prime Hunters, but since Dementium's pacing is a little slower, the game is easier to handle. Item selection is apparently a breeze, with the exception of a shortcut to the oft-needed flashlight, and puzzles make sense. The only downside is that the game apparently only takes about seven hours to complete, but maybe the story -- on which we have very few details at this time -- will make up for it.

I always see this game, and get reminded about just how crap Touch the Dead was, and then think "oh shit, this game could end up the same". Which is a major push-factor for me. But early reports about how this game is rockin' are giving me peace of mind over this game. I may pick the title up, it depends how some good gameplay footage of the game is.

The visuals look great for the DS and in reality, this kind of game would probably be best-suited on PSP or a home console, but if they can pull it off on a console with, in retrospect, not an awful lot of pulling power behind it, then they've got a real achivement on their hands. Here's to 'em!
