I just beat Little Inferno a few minutes ago, which I bought yesterday after it went on sale on Steam. What an intriguing little game. You basically just burn stuff, and then buy more stuff, and then burn that stuff, and it's surprisingly addicting! Not to mention the story is very bizarre, and somehow charming and creepy at the same time. I'm also really digging this song
right now. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for everyone, but if you enjoyed the type of humor from World of Goo or you've got some money to spare (it's $4 right now, which I'd say is perfect for this game), then you should consider checking it out. At the very least, it's a game that's unlike anything you've played before.
Meanwhile, I bought Bit.Trip Runner 2 last week, I'm still making my way through Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and a co-worker of mine let me borrow his copy of Tomb Raider. So it looks like I'll be juggling my time between those three games for awhile! I'd like to finish Nocturne before moving on to the other two, but it's a looong game. I should be nearing the end though, I think... but who knows. Gotta catch all those demons!

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.
