Aaaaaaaaaand my VC collection is complete. That's all I need.

EDIT: I'm happy to say that Super Mario RPG holds up very well to the test of time. The gameplay still feels fresh, the humor's still there, and the storyline still feels like one of the bigger breaths of fresh air to come to a Mario game, ESPECIALLY compared to some of the hokey villains that got introduced in the Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi series. (Except for Fawful. Any villian that uses "I HAVE FURY!" as his catchphrase is an instant winner.)

This is such a bittersweet experience. It's such a good game that you lament Nintendo and Square having their falling out, because an official sequel could have rocked everyone's socks off. And yet, the split's probably one of the best things to happen for both parties, with Square seeing total success in their Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts franchises and Nintendo moving on to make the Mario & Luigi series (THE funniest RPG franchise not called Mother) that's so good, I'm still clamoring for another sequel.

Obviously, the strongest recommendation from me. But as you pass through each character (Geno, Mallow, Booster), just imagine how much more these characters could have been fleshed out in a proper sequel.

It gives me hope that "Chubby Cherub" isn't THAT big of a stretch ...





Parquet Wishes and Leprechaun Dreams

The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"

I'm really debating the Super Mario RPG purchase. I have grown to love Mario-based RPG games, but watching the video of this game on the Nintendo channel turned me off. It looks too much like the Final Fantasy games for me to want to buy it.

Speaking of the Nintendo channel, I finally got around to really studying it, and it was cool to find out that I can download DS game demos. I had fun with Crosswords DS, and less fun with Mystery Case Files: Millionheir.

Holy CRAP. Never thought I'd see these guys end up on Rock Band. And I never thought that anyone anywhere had actually ever heard of them.
