For those of you who dont get it..
flOW is a game released for the PS3 by a small game studio and offered the game for download. Something you wont see happen with other consoles.
anyways heres a review so you can get the comic:
One of the games that was just recently released was flOw, a very interesting game from a rookie game development company, thatgamecompany. flOw is the first video game the company has ever developed; actually, it started out as a computer flash game but has been totally redesigned for the PS3.
You are all probably wondering what flOw is about; the game is about an organism that “flows” about in the water and eats other organisms to evolve. Sounds simple, right? Well, it is. You start off with one of six organisms, each with their own style of movements. The game utilizes the SIXAXIS controls to move your organism around. Tilt in every direction to move it around, if you flick the controller from one side to the other quickly, the organism will perform a quick turn. To perform a boost, you can press any button on the controller. Depending on the organism you have, the way the boost is done will be different. One organism will increase speed while holding down the boost button while another will slow down and spin at high speed, and when you let go of the boost button, the organism will launch out at a very high speed.
The purpose of the game is to eat… just eat. You will flOw about eating defenseless organisms and even aggressive ones just to increase your size and health. While eating them, you will see your organism evolve in real time. In addition to organisms that increase your size and health, there are also some that increase the size of your mouth and your speed. When completed with an area you can eat a red organism that is floating about to proceed deeper in the underwater world. If you miss something and want to go back up, you can eat a blue organism to move back. Once you reach the end, you will encounter a new organism and take its form to a start anew.
ADD: Gabe and Tyco get a PS3
