Legend of Kage 2 DS
I think the quality in this game has much to do with the fact that they don't make 2D ninja action anymore so I like it just for what it is.
This part of your review is what I don't get. Is it good, or just good because its the only Ninja Action Game in town at the moment? On our rating scale, what would you give it?
Warrior of Argus
AKA Rygar. Why are there so many games like this, these 3D sword action games? Its like Capcom made Onimusha, and the dam broke. They all follow the exact same formula: kill thousands of weak enemies, collect glowing orbs, power up your weapons three levels. One thing about Rygar that I actually did enjoy was its graphics; some of it approached Ico-like levels of beauty, stuff you don't really expect on the PS2. And I did like it better than the ass Xbox Ninja Gaiden.
World Stadium EX
Sad to report that things haven't been going so well lately for the Wave. We're still in first place, but with six games to go and Fukuoka only two games behind, we are in an essential playoff series when we face them again in a few days. Its like I can't get a decent hit at the plate anymore; even my home run beasts, Troy Neel and Yasuo Fujii, have stopped going yard. And I think I've been spoiled by the phenomenal pitching of Suzuki. His "chute" is unhittable (I had a 15-strikeout game with him and that pitch), and I in turn overuse him. Most of my other pitchers are average at best. I nonetheless am really looking forward to finishing out the season and whatever comes next. I have been eagerly anticipating my upgrade to 1997's Famista 64, with a familiar Blue Wave team and high marks from Famitsu.
Tecmo Super Bowl
Just a little bit. Its all Elway in this version, the Bronco running backs are straight trash.
Hokuto no Ken Atomiswave
Getting a little better. This was everywhere in Japan when I visited, I wish I could go now and see where I'm at vs. the masters. I've never played a fighter with instant-kill moves competitively, so I dunno if I would still think they were cool or just really irritating in that setting.
I love this show. Its funny and relaxing, very low-key. And I like all the characters, a rarity with anything I ever watch.
Its seriously the best thing in the world to watch while eating dinner. I can say with confidence that the "worst episode ever" is the one where Homer breaks his jaw. The best? Hard to say, but I really love the one where the nuclear plant employees go to a company team-builder retreat in the mountains, and Homer and Burns team up.
Otaku no Video
Showed it to my girl for the first time and was really pleased that she enjoyed it. There should be more anime like this.
Denver Broncos Football
I realize that most of you nerds don't have a drop of Jock in you, but I will hype the Broncos any chance I get. We're sitting at 2-0, have scored a combined 80 (!) points in those two games, and everything I have been saying about Jay Cutler for two years is proving 100% true. Like I told Kaneda once, "John Elway, Part II: Jay Cutler". Big game tomorrow vs. the Saints. Go Broncs!
