I have recently come across some games that are indeed quite good, and I will probably writing reviews for them soon.
The first of these is GNOME NetHack. I found it while perusing the available games to download on Linux, and it caught my attention. I have never played any form of NetHack before, but I had seen someone play it once, so I decided to download it and give it a try. Although the graphics wouldn't look out of place on an 8 bit game, they were still better than the obscure punctuation that serve as graphics in many of the text-only versions of the game. The gameplay itself, however, was quite excellent. In fact, if it weren't for the next two games I am going to tell you about, I probably would have spent all day fighting through dungeons.
Well, I got Guitar Hero 3 (the Wii version, of course) for Christmas, and it is amazing. I have never owned a GH game before, but I had played GH2 over the summer at a friend's house. Anyway, GH3 is superbly fun... I have already beat the story mode on easy, and am working through on medium right now. Through Fire and Flames is a truly awesome song to play on there... I tried it in quick play on expert, and it blew my mind.
Also, my sister got MySims (Wii) for Christmas, meaning that I now have to fight viciously for time on the Wii. I actually played the game a bit, and it is interesting. It is basically a mix of The Sims and Animal Crossing, and while I had never been very interested in AC, I loved the building and designing aspect of both games, and MySims is all about building and designing stuff.
I now have ALL Pink Floyd studio albums ever released... yay!
I am also really happy because I just got MegaTokyo
, in printed form. I was amazed that Borders had it in the first place, but I bought all five volumes, thanks to their handy buy four get one free sale!
