    Atlus has their new puzzle/horror/datingsim game "Catherine" coming out at the end of July and since the pre-orders went up recently it seemed like a good time to start a thread on this.

    Now, for those with Japanese PSN accounts on their system, there is a Demo you can download (if PSN were up).

    But basically, the game is about a guy (Vincent) who is involved with a woman named Katherine, whom he knocks up. She's all about getting serious with him.

    Enter other girl, Catherine, who is just out for the sport of picking up Vincent. Vincent cheats on Katherine with Catherine and so begins the nightmares.

    Gameplay alternates between dating sim style choice games and a difficult puzzle platformer in a nightmare realm where sheep-men try to kill you and a giant woman(monster) with a fork tries to stab you.

    Oh yea...there's some murders or something as well.

    I don't know about you all, but this is right along the lines of the kind of game I feel like we desperately need more of. Something in that stuff I typed had to make you go...WTF? at least once.

    I read a magazine article on this a few days ago. It definitely got my interest.

    I'm interested in having underwear delivered to me in a pizza box by Amazon.com.

    That's a pretty fucked up thing to say right there. :D

    Man, I wished I'd known about this before I pre-ordered the regular edition at Gamestop.

    I hate puzzle games, but I love game with great stories.

    I think I hate puzzle games because I see no reason to play them. You win, yay. Play again?

    Maybe putting a reason behind it like getting to see the story advance would fix my problems with those games and really get me into them. We'll see.

    I'd like to, but I'm honestly doing my best to avoid any real gameplay or spoilers until the game is released. The last time I tried to do that was with Bayonetta. That was...

    ...

    mmm Bayonetta...

    er, sorry.

    Demo drops yesterday...

    thread gets bumped today.

    Team Catherine for me. She just wants to laugh and pal around in bed. Katherine says she kills people in her dreams and I take Atlus at their F'ing word at that.

    I think my first play through is going to consist of Vincent saying the most F'd things possible.
