Never played the originals. Gotta admit, it's quite telling being on the side of a piece of news like this not affected by nostalgia. Not saying it's nothing to be excited about, but compared to how I felt when HeartGold and SoulSilver were announced, I'm pretty apathetic myself.

Though I also have the slightly unpopular opinion that nostalgia is a perfectly valid reason to be excited for something.

After replacing my old PC controller, I've been playing Guacamelee! for the last week or so and I am loving it. It's inspired me to write a bit (when I get caught up on writing) about how you can tell when love is put into a game. That game is just oozing love for the medium, the genre, and the subject matter. Can't get enough of it.

Also on Chapter 10 of Witch and the Hundred Knight, which I believe is the last chapter for the normal ending.

Went to Kentucky and Oregon lately.

For the people that say Chicago is a beautiful city... sure haven't been anywhere else.

I've never been out of the US (except to Canada... but even then just barely) but I've been just about everywhere *in* the US and Chicago is by far my favorite city. I agree it's not the best *looking* but it's just an awesome place full of awesome people and awesome food

If there's anything in the universe that guarantees this WILL happen is the fact that I just bought an import copy of 3.

The wheels of fate are a cruel and kind mistress

Yeeeeahhhhh.... I'm sadly a sucker for this stuff (whatever the official term is). Color me intrigued, though I've never heard of Fruitbat Factory.

I can't say any game has "gotten away" since I'm still determined to beat them all at some point, but I think the two that weigh most heavily for me right now are Xenoblade Chronicles and Radiant Historia. Both are excellent titles, but their pace and overall length make them fairly easy to set aside for other games

I've also been meaning to do all the extra bits in Super Paper Mario since it's my second favorite game, but I'd rather clear out some of my backlog (including the two games mentioned above) before I go for it.

And now for a little word art appreciation:

Every time I look at it I find more to love about it. It fits in nicely with the thematic style of the game. It's got that whimsical Halloween-ish look so perfect, and I like how well some of the elements of the game are silhouetted and integrated into the logo.

The Japanese logo also does this very well:

I found the upgraded spin attack fairly useless. You get it for finding all the squidlings.

Had an Amazon gift card, so I got the new Kirby game and it came in today. So far I'm loving it, the new powers are fantastic. There's just something deliciously evil about beating the snot out of an enemy with a pair of bells. The use of the foreground and background manages to add to the fun without any kind of tradeoff. The only thing that really feels tacked on are the gyroscope controls, but those are few and far between so far. What I truly love so far though is the first boss battle, which had a wide variety of attacks and provided a surprising bit of challenge for a kirby game.

All in all, everything I expect from a Kirby game: A relaxing, cute platformer that I have trouble putting down.

Okay, I laid waste on Mephisto in Diablo II and now it's time to go to HELL. Mephy was kind of dangerous, I'm not sure what attack he was doing but occasionally it made me retreat before I could even begin the assault and other times I was just standing there not really feeling like I was in danger at all. My merc naturally kept dying again and it was kind of expensive fight. I also ran into an elite before him, of which I had absolutely no means to deal damage to. Thankfully I could just outrun it.

Worst game of Diablo 2 was when I made an Ice Sorceress and then the first boss in Hell is completely immune to ice damage >.<

Just finished Chapter 8 of Witch and the Hundred Knight. Just when I thought this game's plot couldn't get any more depressing. I've really been enjoying this game for the past few chapters. I like the direction the plot is going, depressing parts and all, and I like that the game has enough variety in enemies that the combat never feels completely dull.

Man this evening has pretty much sucked. Caught the random shutdown bug in Witch and the Hundred Knight after clearing 66% of a map, and now a game I'm trying to install on Steam is stuck at 99%

Hating technology right now, since this is after my mini-fridge broke down, my computer had a startup error scare, and my PS3 is clearly having a couple of issues (I've owned it long enough that I'm not surprised if it's on its last legs)

We really need to have a community meetup!

So I can take all the ladies home with me!

Gotta agree with Lard this time. I don't even know if I want to go back and finish Persona 4 Golden (I beat the original, so nothing to miss as far as that goes) because I'm just so sick of hearing about Persona 3/4.
