Wow. Haven't posted for eleven days. It's been a combination of being sick and not having the enthusiasm that has kept me from posting in the last week and a half. I'll try to post a bit more frequent (that shouldn't be too hard). And seeing as there's been a few new games coming up that I'm interested in, I may also have some reviews sooner or later. -Kyle
I've been playing a number of games (most of them not incredibly recent) and I've decided to compile my two cents of each game into a single post. Enjoy!
Animal Crossing: City Folk (Wii)
Boy am I loving City Folk. Many gamers complain it's more of the same, which may be true, but I on the other hand have never played an Animal Crossing before this one and am addicted. I boot it up (just about) every day and play for an hour or so. I'm loving it.
Sonic and the Secret Rings (Wii)
I never got around to playing this launch title. I heard it was average at best and steered clear of it. But borrowing it from someone has given me the chance to explore what is an entertaining 3D Sonic game despite it's flaws. When you get going at top speed you'll really see the game shine. There's a lot of clunky mechanics that hold this one back from greatness, but it's still an entertaining ride.
I bought this two days ago. It's a fun little WiiWare title. It's not without its flaws, specifically polish. Nevertheless it's a unique and entertaining environment based puzzle game that involves making paths of light by turning on lamps and breaking windows.
N+ may seem like a simple platformer, and what it really is a simple platformer that's a load of fun. The basic platforming mechanics of running, jumping, and getting to the goal are present and a lots of fun. I'm so close to beating this one, though the last episodes are increasingly difficult and pretty brutal.
I'm definitely getting House of the Dead: Overkill, MadWorld, and New Play Control Pikmin soon, as I'm very stoked for those. I'm also going to get Deadly Creatures sometime, but not right now as I'll have my money spent for a little while. I also haven't decided on Tenchu yet, it looks to be a fun game but I just don't have the money and play time for it. I'll probably hold out until the summer where I can catch up on my backlog of games.
