Hello friends! I've been playing a bunch of new games this week. Like Wrenchfarm, I bought Nidhogg and Samurai Gunn on Steam. I played them for a bit with my boyfriend, and they were both super fun! I like Nidhogg a bit more, but it I bet Samurai Gunn would be crazy with four players. I've actually been looking forward to Nidhogg for a long time now, so I'm glad it's finally out. I'm a big fan of some of Messhof's older games, like Flywrench (such a great game!) and You Found the Grappling Hook, so when I heard he was working on something new I got pretty excited. And it turned out to be a fantastic game! Well worth the wait! I do wish the online matchmaking worked a little better, but the other modes are awesome, at least.

I've also been playing Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder on the 3DS. I think it's a really great direction for the Chibi-Robo series. The original game was really unique and charming, but it could be kind of a chore to play. It was neat exploring a huge house as a tiny little robot, but the mechanics made exploring seem like more work than it was worth. Photo Finder is more like a mini-game collection rather than an adventure game, which I actually kind of like more. My favorite mini-game so far is the sous-chef game, where you have to find specific foods in a huge fridge. The main part of the game, taking pictures of things to create NostalJunk, is also a neat idea, although it's a bit difficult for me because there's not a lot of great lighting in my apartment. The photos never seem to register very well with the game. Maybe I'll have to start playing when there's a lot of sunlight to use. 


I also really like Telly's new smartphone design!

Lastly, I finally got around to playing and beating Link's Awakening! It was amazing, as I'm sure you all know already. That Wind Fish...

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Special little places

In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
