Hm what? I was playing Campaign mode in Tetris, what did I miss?

No clue man. I was half way through the Bubble Bobble campaign when I wrote this, can't remember.

Talking about puzzle games reminded me how Bust a move 4 for the dreamcast has some pretty weird cover art.

The Japanese version is a lot better, it actually looks like the game. :P

Got Enemy Zero for my birthday, still haven't played it yet. Damned backlogs. Always wanted to play D2, shame about it only getting released in the States.

Just interested, Yama, you ever played Hellnight/Dark Messiah (PSX)? I know it only got released in Europe, but let's face it, PSX games are rather easy to emulate. It's a unique game, having a beast chasing you around in sewers and in a very weird underground city, makes for a very eerie feel. Walking down a dark corridor and then the beast is coming towards you makes for great horror; before everybody overhyped Amnesia to heck and back, this game came out, way ahead of its time, imo. Shame it's so forgotten.

Nice article, I actually bought Enemy Zero and D a while back but I haven't had the chance to play them yet.

One of the few horror titles on the PSX that I didn't play, though wouldn't mind picking it up. Have heard nothing but good things about it. Definitely up my alley.

If Xenoblade were a woman, she would be a hot dime piece bomb shell with a bangin body, that was extremely high maintnance, but shes so awesome you know if you let her go it would be the biggest mistake of your life, but you would never be able to let her go anyway because even though she costs a pretty penny, everything else that comes with it some how makes it all worth while.

If Xenoblade were a woman, Dorian would have another reason to dislike it.

Darksiders II advertises how many times you have died to your PSN friends. :lol:

It's pretty cool that it also tells them where you are and what you are doing also.

I guess the other games that do that are other THQ games (Saint's Row) and I guess Nier does it too.
