Well, here we are again, you tens of millions of loyal readers. Another weekend come and gone. This week I’m tacking this column on a Sunday night, cause I’m looking at a stupid-busy week ahead of me.
Check out what I was up to over this Springy-kinda weekend. (I should have been outside more!)
Street Fighter IV
More SF, folks. I started the weekend with 1200 battle points, and I end it with FIVE HUNDRED. Why? Because I decided to stop using Ryu and switch to Gouken. I am learning how to use him the hard way. (Yes, I know I can play non-ranked matches or against the CPU, but then I don’t try as hard.) I’m pretty fascinated by Gouken….he’s hard to play for now, but I see some serious potential here. I press on…
Bit. Trip Beat
You may have read my earlier write up about BTB. I love it. Worth every bit of my 600 points (you see what I did there?) It’s Space Invaders Extreme for Pong. Bloody fantastic game. I beat level 1, and nearly tore my face off playing level 2. I have to take a break and pick this back up again next weekend. Can’t wait to see what other treats Gaijin have up their sleeves for Wii Ware. Not only are they great designers, they’re pretty stand-up guys with a penchant for booze and fart jokes. How do I not love them? (Guys, I’ll give you a dollar if you let me do something on your next game.)
The New Wii 4.0 Menu
Isn’t this silly? I love the new 4.0 menu. Why? Because It’s like I discovered 20 some-odd games I forgot I friggin’ owned. I won’t get into every single game I played (again) but it was alot. Finally, Nintendo. Finally. Now bring me Punch Out, quick.
…how ’bout you? What were you up to, game-wise?
