First up was Samurai Warriors: Extreme Legends. This is basically the same as Dynasty Warriors ..., so I was excited to play it. It's decent, although it can get a bit old to wade through wave after wave of enemy soldiers. Sometimes, though, you're in the mood to do just that. It's rather satisfying to mow down these waves with a well-timed mousou attack.
Then I moved on to Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. The controls weren't too bad, but the hotstop detection for events was a bit off, and got annoying quickly. I don't know that I'll get back to that one any time soon (read: never.)
Finally, we had the most interesting one. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is based on a movie which is based on a book. This game is very surreal. Gameplay is rather simple, but it progresses nicely. The only real irrtant is the 'death' resets. LittleLove was nearly complete with a rather laborious portion, and 'died.' This involves resetting to a previous point, instead of 'game over.' However, the reset points could be a bit more frequent.
In other news, we put the tree up. I have pics, which I may share... not sure yet. I went shopping yesterday to get wrapping paper and suchlike. Ended up with a few gifts for LittleLove, one of which I had them open last night.
Now, it's about time for lunch. I just printed out a list of local Chinese places. They have ratings, a term I use loosely. The two top rated places are ones I wouldn't drag anyone to. Ever.
