The CMP Game Group's new GameSetWatch video game weblog is still updating regularly over the holiday season, and some of the more interesting recent posts include:

- Information on a new freeware 2D adventure title called Cedric And The Revolution, concerned with "a quest to gather enough people for a peaceful demonstration", and as made with PC adventure game creation tool Adventure Game Studio.

- A startling quotation from a fan of PopCap casual game titles regarding 'the relaxed, stress-free mental state in which [casual titles] often place the player', causing GameSetWatch to exclaim: "This, kind readers, is why casual games are actually pretty hardcore."

- Discussion of a new weblog post testing the concept of 'averaging gameplay' by "layering a bunch of gameplay videos right on top of each other", in this case for classic shoot-em-up title Gradius, and utilizing translucent layers to brighten the most used paths.

- The latest information on new consumer game site launches from Future Network and Ziff Davis, including the revamped GamesRadar site and the forthcoming GameVideos hub.

There are plenty more GameSetWatch posts at the official website, where there's also an RSS feed available for subscribing to.
