So I'm going to try and get to bed super-early tonight. Why? Tomorrow is, quite possibly, the biggest gaming day of the year. Two of my most hotly anticipated titles will be release simultaneously, filling me with more gaming pleasure than I can probably stand. First up is Shank, which was nicely reviewed on the front page by one Nick Chester. Ever since I witnessed it in all its cartoony glory at PAX Prime last year, I've waited not-so-patiently to try out the whole shebang. Alongside that is Scott Pilgrim: The Game. As a massive fan of the comics and movie (the movie's better *audience gasps*), this game is like a fucking dream project to see in motion. Both games are frantic, gorgeous, top-notch brawlers, and both will take my attention away from any PAX planning and real-world activities for at least 24 hours. Anyone else looking forward to possibly the two greatest games of the year tomorrow?

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Then and Now

For this month's prompt, let's look back in time on our favorite games, then bring our gaze back to the present. Back then, Pokémon had 150 different monsters to collect, psychic types and ghosts were pretty strong, and the only reliable method of hatching eggs was riding a bike downhill on that bike path outside Celadon. Now, Pokémon has added three new types, psychics were toned down considerably (maybe too much until we see how Sun and Moon do), and we've since seen running and even rollerblading added to help in egg hatching.
