My wife gets home from work yesterday, walks up to me, and hands me a copy of Zelda for the GC! I was shocked. I had asked for it for Christmas, but I guess she decided not to wait. She bought it at target, but not before having to ask a sales clerk to get it out of the back.
Too bad I won't be playing it for a LOOOONG time. Theres no way I can play Okami and Zelda back to back(way too similar), so I'll be playing FFXII inbetween. I may not get to Zelda until freakin' April!

Okami is a huge game. My next task is to go to the Dragonian domain.

Man, I feel stupid. In Okami, after doing the Emperor business and helping out the spaceship girl, I have been wandering aimlessly trying to figure out what to do. I check an FAQ this morning and find out that all I had to was
use The Mist technique to get past the guards so I can see the queen

Why didn't I try that one, when I had already tried other techniques? I have no idea.
I love this game.

I'm surprised that Castlevania was so high on the list. As much as I have always loved Castlevania, I still consider it more of a series for "hardcore" gamers. I don't think I've ever seen a CV game on the bestsellers list.
The top two are well-deserved but very predictable. I'd personally put Zelda first, but thats just because he's so much cooler than Mario.

Okami - Played through the sunken ship, and the part after that when you get shrunk down. Damn, this game is weird.

Okami - I am now in Sei-Nai(sp?) city.
It's odd, because the game felt like it should be done after defeating Orochi in the Moon cave. It was obviously nowhere near done(just check the map!) but it FELT like it.

I am anxious to get into another dungeon or something. That's what I like the most about the game. Plus, I'm already at 30 hours, which is about where most adventure games are ending.

I think we all forget what the definition of a "game" is. Games are supposed to equal fun. The word "chore", or even "backlog", should never come into play(pun intended).
If a game is not fun, don't play it. I stopped playing Suikoden V because I wasn't having fun. I am playing Okami now, which is a lot of fun.
Then again, you have serious minded games like FFXII, which may not necessarily be "fun", but they are damn entertaining, and that is worth just as much.
Nowadays I either play a game to completion before starting another, or stop playing for some reason(see above). I rarely buy a new game before finishing the one I'm playing.
I never use the word Backlog in association with gaming. It makes me think of work. The day games become work is the day I stop playing them.
I agree with CW, though. Reading a thread about a game "everyone" else is playing when you're still plodding trough a game that came out a year ago can be tough. I still read them, though. Masochistic, I guess.

Saw II - Most of this movie was godawful and made no sense whatsoever.
I can't get the stupid code thing to work, so take heed that the rest is full of spoilers:

Why wouldn't the idiots just work together? Why did the thug guy kill the black guy? just to get tThen they have the idiot girl putting her hands into the glass box. Are there people really this tupid in the world? Sure, the whole "explanation of events" at the end makes you feel as if the movie has a littler more going for it. Then we get the girl who is jigsaws "apprentice" or whatever you want to call her. Why even have her as part of the group?

ugh. I've talked far too much about this stupid movie...

I also just started watching LOST last night.

Quote from: "Dincrest"

...only in the Neal household would the Thanksgiving bird be tandoori chicken.

My wife has made this on a couple of occassions. Quite tasty.

The Grim family Thanksgiving was the same boring affair it always is. Not bad, just nothing special.
DR, a bird covered with those spices sounds tasty to me.

Okami - entrenched in the Moon cave. I'm digging(pun intended) the dungeon designs in the game. Very Zelda-esque.

I picked up FFXII on Friday. I juist had to have it, even though I won't get into it until I beat Okami. I watched the intro and played until the first save point. VERY impressed already. Gonna be a great game.

Grim, who is sitting at a picnic table trying to enjoy a peanut butter and banana sandwich.
"Will you guys shut the hell up with all this "metal" nonsense! I'm trying to listen to some good old fashioned Y's music here."

He then jumps on the robots shoulder(very stylistically I might add) and starts flinging peanut butter sandwiches at the monkeys. Several of the sandwiches end up stuck in the 15" woofers, muffling the melodious metal.
The monkeys all instantly drop to the ground, writhing in pain.
"Aughgghh!" We cannot LIVE with out metal!"
The metal-lovin' monkeys are on the verge of death, when suddenly...

I'll definitely be getting this, but for the Gamecube. I'm in no hurry to get a next gen system.
The reviews I've read so far have been VERY encouraging.

Not sure why I'm chiming in here, but I just wanted to say that it made me happy to see someone playing Y's I & II. Enjoy them, man. It is a tad bit sad, though, that music in games nowadays is nowhere near as good as it was back then.

Okami -
I am in the process of locating the last 2 Canine Warriors. This game is damn weird, but I'm enjoying it.
2699  The Rest / General Discussions / Elections on: November 08, 2006, 10:07:53 AM
I don't buy the whole "One vote doesn't mean anything" business. The problem with this statement is that more than one person uses it. A LOT of people use it to justify not voting. If all those folks who think their vote doesn't mean anything actually voted it could definitely sway election results.
I was hella busy yesterday but I still managed to vote after dinner.

I didn't play anymore Okami since my last comment, but I had to add that I feel extra stupid now.  I never really paid any attention to "brush smoke" or whatever it is. This could explain why I didn't do well with the infamous log. I shall pay better attention to this from now on.
