Reading over some game previews today, I came across one that particularly piqued my interest: Remember Me, which comes out this May. The premise struck me as stand-out: a dystopian world where memories can be manipulated like mere pieces of data. You have to get through the game by hacking others' memories and changing the details of them so that you can eventually rediscover your own past.

And, especially since I've been thinking about the role of women in the gaming industry and games lately, I think it'll be an opportunity to see how a female lead does or doesn't influence the story based on gender, as well as does or doesn't hurt sales.

But mostly I think it's an interesting premise to a game that I'd have fun playing.
