Colourful! It’s the one word I would use to describe de Blob 2 above all others. Everything about the game revolves around being artistic with your palette and spreading the vibrancy to anything in your vicinity.
Game Of The Year. The title has weight. It is the first day of a new year and with the passing of 2010 it is time to anoint a single, solitary champion of the year in gaming. It takes a lot to stand out amongst what have been a banner year for good games. There are [...]
