Hey all. Happy... well, Tuesday I guess. Some other commitments kept me busy last night and unfortunately nobody was able to sub in, but since the bosses are on site today I figured I'd take the time to do the recap this morning. In the interest of tidiness I decided to tidy up how I organized the recaps, grouping similar categories together. Hopefully that'll make them easier to read. :)
Not a lot to say Gamewise. I picked up LEGO Star Wars: TCS for the 360 to replace the Gamecube copies I sold awhile ago. Just a fun game that didn't overcomplicate the series like LEGO Batman did. The only game I've really been playing though is Mega Man 9 on XBLA, which I originally picked up on WiiWare but didn't beat before selling off my Wii. That game plays like a dream with the Mad Catz SFIV fightpad, and is a very solid Mega Man game to boot!
Looking at yesterday's cblogs, here's one thing that Mr DIllinger's Video Game: The Movie
piece made me wonder about: why do we bitch and moan about developers making worlds that are brown, edgy, and full of attitude, and then proceed to do the same thing when we make fanfics/movies/art from existing games? While that was an entertaining read, the idea has been done so many times...

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Japanese culture is everywhere in video games, not to mention that Japanese developers always seem to put their own spin on a game. What does Japan mean to your favorite games?
