Adding to the creep factor... a little girl protected by her 'big daddy'.  You have to get to the big daddy so you can get to the girl, who has something you very desparately need in order to survive the game.

Oh, and 'Under The Sea' should be 'Beyond The Sea'... I always get that wrong.

The little girl's voice is really demented, at least until you either suck out what you need from her, or save her from the genetic experiment of which she's a victim.

Anytime you add little girls to a game like this, it increases the creep factor significantly.

Those big daddies are *tough*.  They sustain tremendous damage, while doing terrible damage to you.  They can also slow you down, and blur your vision, adding to the difficulty.  But they are not impossible to kill.  Just rather tough.

Possibly the best advert for a video game I have ever seen:

I did the absolute coolest thing yesterday.
I was sitting on the couch with my laptop and has some vague notion of this game I played when I was a kid that I liked a lot. I never played games much, but I liked this one for some reason.
but I couldn't remember the name, except it had a crystal like name or a caverns or something.
So I hunted and I hunted, and it seems there's lots of apple/c64 historical reference sites, and after sifting through lots of game lists, I recognized it: Gemstone Warrior.

So I hunted around a bit and found a site that lets you download disk archives illegally since he doesn't want the history to go away, and the company likely to sue is long gone.
So I downloaded one of the images and the apple II oasis emulator, found the apple2e.rom, put it all together and in about 10 minutes, I was playing gemstone warrier.
I suppose you have to romp around for a few minutes to get your nostalgia in the mood.
but it was really neat seeing that all over again.
20 minutes later, a2oasis shutdown because it's got a 20 minute limit unless you pay them.
But I got about as much gemstone warrior as I needed. It was such silly fun.

I read a sort of review on Penny Arcade of a game for the Nintendo DS called "The World Ends With You".

At least, that's the American title for it.  The Japanese title translates to "It's A Wonderful World," but who here would buy a game by that name?

I have a hard to figuring out how far I've come along in the game, but I think I'm nearing the end of it.

Most storylines in RPGs are, frankly, incredibly lame.  I rarely want to play an RPG for the story line.  I play them for the gameplay itself, and maybe the graphics.

The Nintendo DS is only going to have so much of an attraction due to graphics, so I guess they opted to focus on the storyline instead.  And, honestly, it's the best storyline I think I've ever seen in a video game.

"The World Ends With You" has a relatively deep storyline to it, with moral ambiguity, and interesting turns, that makes you want to find out how the story ends (at least, for me).  It isn't straightforward.  It maintains enough of a mystery that you wonder where it will go.  It has some darkness to it... the game is not exactly full of warm-fuzzies, as the storyline maintains some real danger for the characters involved.

I started to see a hint to the game's depth today, as the game kind of revealed something subtle, and finally repeated its title in the course of a conversation your character has with the one person he knows he can trust.

If you have an angst-ridden teenager who likes playing video games, and owns a Nintendo DS, I strongly recommend this game.  And, honestly, it's fun to play as a 41 year old adult, too.  But the moral lessons may hold more value to the angst-ridden teenager.

I read a sort of review on Penny Arcade of a game for the Nintendo DS called "The World Ends With You".

I forgot to mention that I bought the game because of Penny Arcade's review... that's why I mentioned them.

If you check it out right now (today), you'll see it on the front page:

IGlet has a DS but all he seems to want to play on it is "M&M's Kart Racing"

They have that for the DS?  Interesting.  Does he turn the thing like a wheel?

On the DS it's a more conventional racing game, and that's how he plays it.

He really likes this game and plays it a lot, even though everyone who has reviewed the game *really* hates it. But they're not eight years old (and the IGlet is, admittedly, a far less sophisticated gamer than most kids his age).

The DS version displays a follow-cam view on the top screen and a track map on the bottom. I suppose it could be any racing game and he'd treat it the same way.

That makes sense, I think.

I should take more of a look at the games available for the DS.  It's a very good platform, and I like the machine, but I haven't really explored it.

I had a copy of Pele's Soccer somewhere around 82 or 83 for the Atari 2600.  It was sort of, but not quite like actual soccer.  It also wasn't terribly fun.  Three little rectangles scooting around kicking a square at another larger green rectangle in an attempt to display the awesome fireworks when you scored a goal.  Looked like this:

Pele's Soccer








Today I'm spending probably 80% of my gaming time playing Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 for the PS3.  It is remarkably quite like actual soccer in every way.  The graphics are quite a bit of a leap from 1982.  They look like this:

PES 2008 PS3









There is a remarkable simularity between the two, however.  It was and is IMPOSSIBLE to find anyone that I know in the US to actually play a game with.  So, since I see that we've been swapping Wii codes here I thought maybe it would be a good idea to see if there are any other PS3 owners out there who are interested in playing PES 2008.  Please feel free to add my PSN ID as a friend.  I assure you I will accept it.  My PSN name is also Schpenke.

I've got a PS3, but I don't have PES 2008. I think the only game I have for the PS3 that can do online-multiplayer is Guitar Hero III, and I haven't fired that up in ages.

I recently got a Nintendo DS as an early Father's Day gift and I've been "playing" Flash Focus. Flash Focus is one of those games in the vein of Brain Age Acadmeny, where it's really more of a training program than a game. Flash Focus is geared towards testing and improving eye-related skills, such as hand-eye coordination, momentary vision, etc. I don't have the best of eyesight, so it's been challenging, but I feel like I'm noticing small improvements in day-to-day activities that require heavy use of my eyesight, such as driving.
It doesn't improve visual acuity, but, rather, helps train your eyes to respond quickly to changes in your environment.
