Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a club can be used to hit an animal; steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions; rockets can be lobbed at a man).

-From the ESRB description of Scribblenauts

"Right after getting back to Japan, [Miyamoto] suddenly said: "You know we're including golf now." Apparently he'd stated in an interview that this time round golf shots would be determined by the backswing, even though at that time a golf game didn't exist in any shape or form!"

"question, did you play with controller or keyboard?

3 Samurai of the Way?


Can you taste it? Its coming out next week. Its just a few days away! Survive the weekend and a few days, and you will be rewarded with a B-List Masterwork!

Way of the Samurai 3 is coming out next week on Oct. 13th, for PS3 and 360. Priced at $50 ($40 at ), this two year old release from Japan has been the cause of much zeal from your humble resident tuba man. There's something about this game that's very special. I'm not even that much of a japan-o-phile anymore, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for the romanticisizing of Bushido and samurai ethics. Even in the face of Uncharted 2, Brutal Legend, and the newly remade A Boy and his Blob, I am supremely stoked for the next installment from one of the best mediocre-to-great gaming series of all time.

Its been a long strange zealous trip, my friends. And for me, I have to say, its already "Mission Accomplished". At least three people commented that they either didn't know about this series, or had no idea that the North American port was even happening, before they read my blogs. Its a game that, reasonably, doesn't get alot of attention. Ad budget is slim (though making an iPhone game was a slightly clever gesture), and blog/bigsite coverage has been sparse, save for occasional press releases. If I've turned one person on to this modest game, blogging has proven to be an effective tool for spreading the joy of sub-AAA gaming.


But enough of that! Find here, fellow D-Toiders, the collected blog journey of my Way of the Samurai zealotry! Discover, relive, and enjoy!
