New Video Game “Catherine” Is All About Cheating

Wow, this new video game “Catherine” sounds pretty twisted. Here’s the concept of this anime game: the player is Vincent, age 31, a boy-man whose girlfriend Katherine (left) is smart and hot, though a little stodgy—as denoted by her glasses, naturally. Basically, Vincent just isn’t ready to commit to her. He is at a bar with his friend, when the scantily-clad Catherine (right, spelled with a ‘C’) walks in. They end up going home together. From here, the player has to decide whether to tell Katherine about the infidelity and try to save the relationship, or whether to leave Katherine for Catherine, etc. To get to the decision, the player has a series of nightmares in which they have to climb walls and solve puzzles. The nightmares alternate with animated scenes that give more information about both possible relationships.

Somehow, this all sounds sort of wack to me. I mean—what is the point of the game? Is there skill involved? Is the game implying that there is a right choice? Does the “right choice” change? In other words, can you play it zillions of times and get to different decisions? In this game, can you win?

The game is available for XBox 360 and PlayStation and costs $59.99. I recommend not getting it for your significant other for their birthday.
