Congratz Yoda. Glad Darksiders was worth it for ya. I should probably go pick it up next time I head to the Mall.
Anyways, I've been playing Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Distruction and Pokemon Black Version 2. Both are games I'm really enjoying, but not quite as much as I expected to. For R&CF:ToD, it really feels like the series' charm is wearing off on me. This game does quite a few things differently, but not enough, and some of them are worse (I miss destructable environments...). It's still clever, funny, and mostly well made, but there are some annoying glitches and some levels are drawn out more than they should be, especially the missions where you bring those two clunkers along. Oh well, I figure I'm nearing the end, so I'll probably power through the rest soon enough.
Pokemon Black 2 - There are a lot of things really holding this back, and most of them were things done right in Black 1. The non-trainer dialogue is pretty bland, and the story so far has been really bad, even for a Pokemon game. It's poorly written, poorly paced, pooly put together, and worst of all, Team Plasma no longer comes off as a threat so you don't really have much pushing you forward. I thought it couldn't get much worst than Team Galactic's half-hearted shinanigans, but Team Plasma has taken the cake, and is definitely a shadow of its former self. And I miss N something fierce, too. Oh well, I like the new stuff they added, which is a ton, except for the Movie making mini-game. That sucked. Also, there's an endless supply of pokemon to collect now, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing, because that gives me tons of choices, bad thing in that it slows the pacing as I try to get as much as I can before I give up. I also seem to need to grind more than I did in Black 1. I'm 4 badges in, but I fear I may burn out before the end.
Also, while I was writing this, I went and played some Super Mario Sunshine. Too keep it short, the problems of this game are starting to mount, too. It's still good, but I'm on the 3 most frustrating levels in the game (I hope). One requires the camera cooperates with me (which it only does half the time), another is a boss fight against ever multiplying shadows which I cabn't seem to beat, and the last one is just really hard. Oh well, at least getting the Blue coins can be fun sometimes.
