Title of the Year: Dejobaan's AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!

Now, for the sake of clarity, we should explain what we mean when we say "title of the year". Dejobaan's upcoming BASE jumping simulator, which resembles a mash-up of Mirror's Edge and Pilotwings (check out a gameplay demo after the jump), doesn't really look like GOTY material (or GOTW material, for that matter). However, the game's moniker is pure brilliance: AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. The game's designers suggest that the press truncate the title to a mere Aaaaa! but we won't be doing that.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! is set to drop (har) in Q3 2009 on PCs. We probably won't pick it up (our preferred sports rarely get more extreme than ping pong) but we'll defend that title to our graves. Get it straight people -- it's one big "A", four little "a"s, two big "A"s, three little "a"s, three big "A"s, two little "a"s, four big "A"s, one little "a", five big "A"s and three exclamation points. It's not that hard to remember.
