I'm In Love With A Game...

...and its name is Okami.

I didn't think I could feel this way about a video game any more. I didn't think they made games like this any more. I assumed those fantastic world-reviving games like Actraiser, Soul Blazer and Tenchi Souzou were a thing of the past. But this game---this game!

My eyes are burning.

Why did it take me so long to try this game? I guess the answer is simple enough; I have a huge library of mediocre-to-good PS2 games and no Wii games at all. (Don't look at me, my mother bought the Wii for some reason. I think she cherished the idea of buying something somebody else wanted). So I bought Okami for the Wii. It's friggin' awesome. That's all I have to say. :D

I was watching a trailer for the newest Tales game and inwardly groaning. I asked myself, "All right, how old do these people think I am?" I realize now that it's not a question of how old Tales Studio thinks I am but how old I think I am. If I'm going to play video games at all I need to stop playing games that are targeted for 12-16 year olds. I'll just end up getting angry, bitching, and making people angry with my bitching.

Speaking of games for mature people, Kristen has given me permission to do Scenario B in LindaCube Again. That game is quite engrossing but so ugly it belongs on the Sega Genesis, not the PSX. The game is supposedly infamous for being mega-violent but I don't know...maybe for its time it was bad but I've seen much worse in anime like Giant Robo.
