Excerpt: de BLOB fell through the cracks somehow. I remember playing this game at E3 in the year of our Lord 2008. It impressed me quite a bit. We never got a reviewable copy and we were busy with lots of other games. I realized that we had not reviewed it, so I went out and purchased this game. It was as good as I remembered. Players bring color back into an oppressed world. The main character is a blob who collects color and then deposits it on the drab areas.
Conclusion: de Blob is a game that has actually had a long journey in coming to the Wii. The whole concept was showcased more than two years ago at an independent game festival. The folks at THQ realized the concept's potential, and the resulting game is a fun and free-wheeling experience that is simple enough to appeal to the casual sect but has enough depth to capture the hearts of the hardcore crowd.
Summary: If you have a heart and you wish to embrace your inner child all over again, there’s absolutely no question about it; you should buy this game. Even those who may find this sort of thing to be “kiddy” should give it a shot. Let go of that close-minded view for a few moments and get into it. You might find your entire view of the gaming world changed forever.

Excerpt: When it comes to our own personal entertainment through various media, we've never been one for subtext and social commentary. Yes, so we get that Animal Farm is a satirical take on Stalin's Russia and Dawn Of The Dead is a biting - ha! - commentary on America's obsession with consumerism but does any of that matter when the book/film/song in question is so good anyway? Probably not.
