MMMMMMMMMMMMMMONDAAAAAAY. What's going on 'Toiders? How is this fine Monday evening treating you? I hope well! Not a huge blog day (not complaining) today. I wonder of people are just waiting for a certain game to release/pre-load...Hmmmmmm...
Personally, I really want to play it, but will have to just Gamefly it for now. Blame Monster Hunter. This week, I've sort of floated back into Skyrim, and boy do I enjoy that game. Some of the quests are just so well-crafted. And the world is just...well; you know. It's been out for awhile. I'm probably gonna grab that Hearthfire real soon.
Besides the obvious way-too-much MH3U, I also rented Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I was worried that the game wouldn't be "Metal Gear" enough, but so far I am pleased. Platinum is delivering bigtime. In gameplay and story. I am so freaking happy it's hard to articulate. It gets the official smurfee mcgee Stamp Of Approval, as a matter of fact. It's beautimous, the combat is deep and satisfying, Raiden is a still a wonderful mirror/Greek tragedy of gaming, the music is terribad but makes sense, sombrero, wolf cyborgs, German scientists, VR atrocities... AHHHHHHH. I recommend it strongly/10.
So, uh, it's hard to write much right now. All I can seem to think aboiut is The Master. Have you seen that? Like, wow, man. /Flixist
