Don't blame the sniper in Short-Lived Heroes' YouTube vid "OctoParty: Dadliest Spy" - a mash-up of Octodad and SpyParty - for having trouble spotting the undercover agent slinking through the crowd of partygoers; after all, the sneaky cephalopod slipped by us at E3, too. [Image: Short-Lived Her...

You might think you've seen the strangest of the App Store, but unless you've downloaded Watching Cute Girl, I promise you that you haven't.
