Having a Wii in my home has drastically changed the dynamic of gaming in my living room.
Last week, I won a copy of Muramasa: The Demon Blade during a Dtoid Twitter Party (yay!). My room mate, after hearing the good news, decided to bring his Wii from home just so we could play this amazing game. He brings it back and pops everything into the TV. Now, this is the first time I’ve ever had a Wii as a main gaming machine, so we’ve been playing stuff I’ve never touched before. Oddly enough, it’s become my new favorite system almost overnight. Plus, we’ve got a bunch of people coming around to beat each other with virtual foam swords. So that’s nice.
Wow, folks, thanks for giving me a light night for the recaps! In said recaps we have a double dose of the Double Down, all kinds of gaming music, and Bill Murray.

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.
