Ever since Bit.Trip Core
was released this week, it's been pretty much all I've been playing. Even though Core
shares a similar look with Beat
, the gameplay is completely different. The developers really weren't lying when they said it's a more traditional rhythm game, as it takes a lot more practice to be good at. In Beat
, you could get by with just sort of winging it, and going by reflexes, but not the case in Core
I almost finished the game today. I can get to the last boss on the third stage, but everything just seems really random, with notes coming out from every which direction at once, and there is no videos of the boss on YouTube yet, so I can't get help there. But seriously, the game is freaking amazing, Gaijin really has a winner on their hands when it comes to their Bit.Trip
Also, check out my review of the Yukiko Amagi figure from Persona 4
over on the Tomopop Cblogs. I was contemplating reposting it on the Cblogs today, but just decided to put it in the recap instead.

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.
