My Visit to the Nintendo World Store

The Nintendo World store is still Mecca for Nintendo fans and a haven for black market Wiis. They have the popular console every morning. They only allow one per person, but you could just walk in, buy a system, sell it on eBay and double y...

 
 
 

Brütal Legend Makes Me Sad

There is little doubt in my mind that Brütal Legend will be brilliant. Psychonauts is one of the best games ever made. I wish I had easy access to Tim Schaefer's other games but I don't have a DeLorean and even if I did, it would have to ...

 
 
 

One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

So guess which system gets the black guitar with non-removal faceplate. I'll give you a hint: it's the one for poor-people who don't have the money to buy a next-gen system (and if you say "The Wii is super-affordable!" I'll respond "The...

 
 
 

A couple notes on Phantom Hourglass

While this game is definitely a must-buy for anyone whose DS has been gathering dust for the past few months (like mine) as well as a given for any Zelda fan, I do have a couple issues so far: 1.) They assume you're gonna figure out what y...

 
 
 

PRIME'd Out

I don't have a Wii. Even if I could find one, I couldn't afford it (I'm super-duper un-full-time-employed). So that's why I'm not playing METROID PRIME 3. But my younger brother was good enough to not take his Gamecube to college so I picke...

 
 
 

E3 2007: I'm Not There

Not to diminish the experience of all the journalists that get to go to E3 and actually play the games and meet industry professionals, but as far as announcements and trailers go, I'm pretty much getting the same thing except maybe one hou...

 
 
 

Wind? Awoken!

Well, I finally beat WIND WAKER. I didn't come anywhere close to 100% completion, but I picked it up because I was falling behind on major Zelda games (sorry handheld Links!) that I had yet to beat. I'm in no rush to jump into TWILIGHT PR...

 
 
 
 

Some Days Weren't Meant For Gaming

So I'm getting more into Wind Waker. It's still not THE GREATEST but I'm liking it more now that I know how to chart and pick up treasure. I still think the GC controller is proof that Jesus died in vain, but you can't win 'em all. But ...

 
 
 

4:30 AM - Frozen Chicken Fingers

I think one of the greatest achievements in our history is the self-service check-out. Not only can you not yell at yourself for going to damn slow or not being able to scan a product, but it removes the judgment. I could buy spiked condo...

 
 
 

Waking The Wind and Ordering a Phoenix

So I'm rewatching HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE before I go see ORDER OF THE PHOENIX later today (again, my job > your job) and I have to say that I like it a lot more than I remember. The emotional beats just resonate stronger an...

 
 
 

Greed Kicks Wisdom's ASS

So over the past few weeks, I've been scrapping to get a 360. Not the high system failure rate (Peter Moore isn't a shitty tipper, he just doesn't understand how to do percentages) nor the investment of not only games, XBOX Live, extra con...

 
 

About WantonDistractionone of us since 12:08 AM on 03.08.2007

I play the most dangerous game of all--Scrabble. What, did you think I was going to say "hunting people"? That's sick. Also, expensive.

My favorite games of all time? Let's the run list!

1. Final Fantasy VII
2. Super Mario Bros. 3

[#1 and 2 frequently switch positions depending on how I'm feeling that day; the point is they're both better than you]

3. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
4. Chrono Trigger [which I actually have the Super Nintendo cartridge and will one day send my potential spawn to college as I imagine the selling price for that item will doubtless rise with the rate of inflation]
5. Super Mario RPG
6. Psychonauts
7. Mario Kart DS
8. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
9. Kingdom Hearts
10. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

And what am I playing now? Well, look me up on XBox Live and you'll see.
