han shot first

So this guy gets on my bus tonight. He's got the whole Silent Bob thing going on. Long dark hair, beard, black everything including leather jacket. And he's got this Han Shot First shirt on.

And I'm thinking, "That's a nice shirt. I totally agree with that shirt... NERD!!!!"


Of course, I thought that while wearing my Tardis shirt that Rakka made for me...

oh, hello

Been working a hell ov a lot lately. So I haven't been doing the blogging. That's not to say that I haven't found time for some video games.

Played though most of Zack & Wiki (wikipedia). Didn't finish. Fun, but the puzzle difficulty was all over the place. And I'm not a fan of action puzzles, of which there were a few. They were especially annoying because the control was pretty bad. If there are zombies after you, the difference between running away and embracing them should be more than two pixels. The final boss was unpleasantly difficult; even with cheats and help.

So, sent that back and gamefly sent me Battalion Wars 2 (wikipedia). Been playing it only a couple days. It's pretty crap. Despite what IGN might say, the control is not intuitive at all; it's so easy to set the wrong guys shooting at the wrong thing. The pacing is awful; they're constantly interrupting game play to tell you what to do next. And the voice acting is some of the worst in any game I've played in many years.

In between those two I started Phantom Hourglass (wikipedia). Now that's fun. I get stuck sometimes, I always do in zelda games, but that's what gamefaqs.com is for.

Endless Ocean
(wikipedia) looks good. I might skip rental and go right to the purchase option. Usually bites me when I do that though.
