The Pipeline: Frustration Has A New Name, It's Called N++

A review filled with nerve-racking failure and clinched teeth.
It isn't often that I find a game that makes me want to slam my controller to the floor in a fury of anger and misery—especially since these, days a controller runs you $40 for the brand name, and between $25-70 for an off-brand that may or may not do what you need it to. But occasionally I'm reminded that there are games out there that almost seem designed to piss you off.
