yeah I fuckin hate Mario 64. But I'm with you on SOTC. I was borderline tears several times in that game. Did you like Ico? I thought it was damn close to as good as Shadow.

here's what I wrote about Ico after beating it in January:

wow. Just wow. I played through Shadow of the Colossus about this time last year. Seemed fitting to get sucked into Ico now. So my thoughts... uh. Let me gather them as best I can. First off, I'm glad I played this on PS3. I think that there is a big difference in appearance from videos I saw. But let me tell you, Ico ran amazingly in HD. It's impossible to talk about Ico (now) without comparing it to SotC of course. And that's a tall order, as SotC is easily one of my favorite games of all time now. First let me start by saying I loved Ico. I really did. It's a very different game, so comparing them is almost pointless. Ico had a lot more focus on puzzles. In that sense, it was often a very relaxing game. And for the most part the puzzles were well thought out. I was able to play mostly FAQ-less, finding myself really only stumped a couple of times (mostly during the waterfall section). But mostly the puzzles would get me thinking for a while, but weren't usually too obscure so as to feel unfair. I personally found the controls very easy to pick up after playing SotC as well. I think my only complaint would be with the combat. Personally, I almost feel like until the end of the game, the combat was almost unnecessary and in a sense felt like a jarring interjection to the puzzle solving segments. Perhaps that was the point? I will admit that the last battle took me a WHILE to figure out. But felt great once I knew what to do. And now the obvious stuff: Ico is beautiful. Just a gorgeous game to look at and listen to. I also found myself very attached to Yorda in a protective way. Funny, as I normally am not into escort-missions. But some Ueda scripted it all in such a way that it felt very emotionally-taxing for me. And some scenes toward the end really brought on a sense of high melancholy. The bit after the credits, where Ico is free to explore the beach -- and eventually see the words "the end" were another genius touch to the cinematic-gameplay experience. One that only makes me hope that Last Guardian is really going to happen soon. I can see myself playing through this one again -- maybe even soon. It only took me a little over seven hours. But they were seven hours well spent. And I feel like the world the Ueda built offered plenty to explore that I may have missed the first time.

I like the many things my xbox360 does, and I do not give as flip for blu-ray. No need for it. (Until The Blind Eye Sees All comes out remastered for Blu-Ray! never!)

as far as game availability I don't know.

i have a plasma (for work! tax deductible!) and bluray makes a difference in that screen cuz it's fucking gorgeous.

when the tv is too bright (some LCDs) bluray actually looks weird like, too realistic, not movie-like. but panny plasma is fucking sweet, gorgeous color + everything, makes it easy to avoid the theatre with the stupid people in it.

ANYhuevos, i have no money right now for a console, actually, ha ha ha, but just thinking about it for "one of these days"

Anyone getting the Mass Effect Trilogy pack? PS3 owners come out on top in the deal. They're getting to finally play the first iteration (same graphics engine or the updated one used for ME2 and ME3?) plus all the downloadable content.

It's really good (and was recently on Steam, on sale).

Turn-based strategy, heavy in tactics, squad customization and an "ant-farm" style base between combat missions.

So far, my sqaudleader Maj. Jico Jico and his Lt., Amy Pond are alien-killing machines. I nearly cried when Jico took a plasma-blast to the face, such is the investment you end up placing in your team-members.

My vidya game time is limited, but this has me enthralled.

I'd really like to get the new X-COM sometime, don't have the money to spend on it though. I've played the demo they have on Steam, definitely enjoyed what I got out of it. They made some changes from the original like, they made some I don't like, I think it'll be a good package.

From that steam sale though I went in with three friends and picked up castle crashers, that four pack deal, made it like 3 dollars. I'd played it on the 360 a few years back, and as someone who almost universally refers to the mouse/keyboard as the perfect control setup, CC plays better on the 360 I think. I really enjoyed the first half. But once you cross the ocean, I really feel the game starts to become kind of tired. The bosses especially feel pretty obnoxious, especially that corn cob boss. Alot of them just devolve into waiting games where you're just stalling and dodging crap until the boss makes himself vulnerable for like a second. Whatever, I still like it haha.
