8-bit Metal Mondays: God, Lucifer, and some rebel Angels

Apart from having to work the Woodward Dream Cruise for the 4th straight year (yearly gripe: I HATE the fucking cruise!), I've been spending most of my time playing El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron.While it's turning out to be a bit shorter than I had expected, it's still been an artsy blast. The one thing I just can't get over is that Lucifer is your guide and active save point through your adventure. The game's plot takes place well before the angel's revolt in the Bible, so the future leader of Hell is on the good guy's side. In jeans and chatting with God via cellphone, no less. And what a missed opportunity there for all the cell phone companies of the world to hop on some obvious branding and advertisement. Example: " Our new Motorolas may not get through to Heaven, but their reception is Godlike!"  Money Maker guaranteed.                  

So, for our weekly endorsement of anything bleepy, how about something a little bit more holy, eh? Here's Demon Hunter's Undying.
