When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

One of the most anticipated titles of 2005, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath takes the series in a new direction, combining first and third person gameplay with signature Oddworld humor and storytelling. Oddworld Stranger's Wrath challenges players to step into the role of the Stranger, a mysterious bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah.
