For Trauma heads it's sublime: take a niche title and just add more niche (that is, another fan) to appreciate it. It's uber-niche. Don't be surprised to see addicts hanging around outside GameStation, waiting to hijack the skills of anyone with a copy in their bag. Without a wingman, New Blood just isn't the same."
