Samus!


Just put in my pre-order for Metroid Other M. The combination of release date delivery, $20 gift card, and good reviews sealed the deal.


I would have liked to get to a couple of titles before starting M. Mainly Limbo, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Rocket Knight, and Chaos Ring for iPad. I could probably squeeze in at least one of those. Also check out the official Other M site for the wallpaper above along with a few other.

Anyone else jumping on Other M?

Ryu!


My controversial prediction that the Namco version of this crossover could be the one to watch gets some validation. Ryu is looking incredible so far! (image from the 1up news story found here)

Tactics Ogre PSP

I love strategy games, but for whatever reasons never got on the Tactics Ogre wagon. The new remake for the PSP would have likewise passed my notice without fanfare if not for the wonderful character art.

I immediately recognized it as the work of Akihiko Yoshida who I started following after his work on Vagrant Story. Will his involvement be enough to dip my toes into the TO waters? I'd have to get a PSP again first. If they port this to the iPad or iPhone, I'd be in day one.

Limbo!


I finally got around to trying Limbo last night and it started freaking me out so much I had to play some happy games before hitting the sack.

There are no costumes (that I know of) in Limbo, but as you know, I like to highlight games with extraordinary visual sensibilities. 

What were the "happy" games I played? The demos of Hydro Thunder and Rocket Knight. I loved both of them and will purchase the full versions as soon as I'm done with StarCraft II.
