 Wine Trader
Some of you may have been watching E3 waiting for the next big, exciting game. And if you have, you've been wasting your time, because the most intense game I've ever played is already here.

In fact, it's been here for a while, hiding away in Ergheiz the way a bomb hides in a popsicle. Those of you with weak hearts or bladder conditions may wish to leave the room, because I'm about to reveal a screenshot so intense that you may die or soil yourself, respectivly.

Still alive and free of feces? I'm not afraid to admit that more than a little poop flew out of me in pure surprise upon viewing that amazing screen.

Yes, it's wine trading, the minigame within a minigame in Ergheiz. Ergheiz's RPG minigame lets you trade wine on what is basically the wine stock market. You buy wine, and then you want for the price to become higher so you can sell it for a profit. If that sounds too easy, then you havn't figured in the power of the wine trader's super blur attack!

I swear, by the way, that that's the game doing that, and it's not just blurry because I was taking screenshots with my digital camera because Bleem! has refused to stop running anything.
All in all, though, I really can't describe the intense wine-trading experiance to you. It's something that must be played to be belived. As proof, though, here's a picture I snapped of WrexSoul as he played the game. Simply looking at him should be proof enough of the level of excitement this game generates.

...and no review can be complete without a hacked screenshot, so here's the sequel I'd like to see:
