Monday Goes All Lost Weekend On Me

Ha. I was supposed to get stuff done today, but other than getting up too early to do laundry, today was a near total bust. Why? Well… my birthday present to myself came early and I was busy playing with myself.

Oh, wait… this is a family show. Oops. Hey, I got pictures as proof! Look:

What? You were thinking something else? Anyway, Demon Gaze I’ll need to get used to because it’s both great (Wizardry-style gameplay) and pesky (I’m not at all fond of some of the character designs and somewhat icky fan service elements). On the other hand, Earth Defense Forces 2 Portable V2 is amazing on a few levels. Yes, developer Sandlot didn’t change the wacky animation from the original PlayStation 2 game and in fact, Pale Wing slides around and almost tips over like a Weeble even more when she’s not airborne. However, there’s a solid and lovely familiarity to the (smoother) visuals and gameplay that kept me busier than expected. Oops. Well, that Double Nyuutai Pack was a total steal thanks to an overstock, so I’m certainly pleased with my purchase and then some.

I also got a Blu-Ray to review that’s more of a real “not for the kiddies” deal (it’s a pretty icky horror flick from Arrow Video), so I guess I’ll get to that shortly. Saving the earth from robots and too huge insects can be put on hold for the time being. Maybe.

  1. Happy (early) Birthday!
    Demon Gaze is a game I’ve considered checking out. It looks pretty good.
    And you’ve made me curious about Earth Defence Force. I’ve read a lot about that game on y our blog. It seems to be a real favorite of yours 🙂

    • Aw, thanks! I’ll reply to your post of those Sega repros tomorrow. My connection here is CRAP and your page isn’t loading up. I’m torn on those, but they’re absolutely the best copies I’ve seen. EDF is awesome, btw. You should try and grab Earth Defense Force 4 on the PS3 one of these days.
