For some reason I got an urge to go on a nostalgia trip and play some old Sonic stuff today, so I dug up my old Gamecube (don't laugh) and did exactly that. I know 3D Sonic's a bit of a mess that probably wouldn't have been anywhere near as fun for me now if it wasn't for the fond memories of my childhood but I had a blast with the Sonic Adventure games back then and I still do now. Also the soundtrack for the second game is so good.

A) the Gamecube is AWESOME

B) Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 were good games. It's some of the later games where Sonic Team wanted to make Sonic into some pseudo Final Fantasy world with a bunch of unnecessary and frankly annoying characters

Hehe, someone else that actually had a Gamecube? It's such an underrated console. I remember being amazed at how good Starfox Adventures looked on it, a feeling that I certainly don't get that often with the "wow, it's so brown" current gen that often.

I still have my Gamecube plugged into the TV and even bought a wireless controller so I could continue my hedonistic gaming lifestyle the current generation consoles have allowed me to live. I actually think the Gamecube had pretty decent graphical range, especially in games like Resident Evil 4 or the 2002 remake of Resident Evil. It also gave us probably the best Zelda game after Majora's Mask with Wind Waker, as well as an interesting take on Mario with Mario Sunshine where you have that weird water pistol thing, and then there was Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door. Then there were some pretty good third party games as well like Viewtiful Joe, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.

Anyhow I'm going to be playing this over the holiday weekend.



Way of the Samurai (2002)

I remember looking at this one at the store quite a bit, but never working up the energy to actually pick it up. It's a third-person action/adventure game where you play a Ronin wandering the countryside and choosing to help people or not. The cool thing about it is that it follows the same system that those old "Choose Your Own Adventure" books followed and can allow multiple solutions, but you can't go back and change them if you feel like it, which I think is pretty cool because it adds tot he replay value. Oh and by multiple solutions, one solution could be to just walk away from a character who's talking to you, rather than choosing between three dialog options like we have now in most games. The combat looks cool too, and reminds me of the EA developed Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers game that came out 10-years ago with light attacks, heavy attacks, parries, blocks, and kicks.

Kind of reminds me of Kenji. I actually enjoyed the game despite its bad ratings.

Spec Ops: The Line (2012)

Wow.... I mean wow... This game got made? Opening scene is a tattered inverted American flag waves over a sand stormed battered Dubai as Hendrix's version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" plays in the background. The game follows three Delta force operatives who attempt to find what happened to a US Army Colonel who stayed behind to help refugees. Its based on the book Heart of Darkness by Joesph Conrad and delves into the darkest recesses of the human heart as you're faced to confront the horrors of war. It is a truly captivating story that plays on your assumptions that its going to be a nothing special Call of Duty clone, and by god prepare for your world to be rocked. It is a little short, with the campaign only 4-6 hours long so its a good rental, but the game has some good replay value and the story can be told again and again.

Finally got my mitts on GTA IV. Playing it for 3 days. Addictive stuff. Up to Search and Delete, already hating this damn car chase.
