It didn't register how much time I was losing to Thanksgiving travel and waiting for my Wiimote to arrive, but I'm probably going to squeak by a few days before the deadline.

I've started the City in the Sky now, and the last two hours have really been a gallery of this game's problems. I'll save most of that for the review so I'm not repeating myself, but the tl;dr version is that, wow, it really isn't 2006 anymore. We've learned a lot about motion controls and how they should (or shouldn't) be used since then, and a lot of the things that we're awesome to middle-school, new to 3D games me are just basic expectations now.

There's still a lot to like about it, but it's starting to feel like a case of death by a thousand annoyances.

I lost track of what's going on. Are we starting a new round? I'm free for a December round.

The current round ends today.

I'm also up for a December round, but I'd need to have a short game picked. Already have a ridiculous amount I'm trying to finish this month.

Legit got the last entry at like noon today because I am a real adult! In other news, trying to finish a Pokemon game in two weeks was an incredibly silly idea.

I guess technically I'm sitting out this month since I picked my own games I wanna do.

Sounds like it's full of action-RPG brawling and scantily-clad ladies. Like 'Chronicles of Mystara' crashed into a Victoria's Secret and just kept going. Gee, one wonders why I picked that up...

I seem to recall someone here (perhaps you your very self!) comparing 'Ittle Dew' to 'Wind Waker'. 'Wind Waker' is one of my favouritests. Feel like taking on 'Ittle Dew'?

Done. I have no idea why I put something I knew was less than an hour long as its own entry.

I'm up for doing another one if you're picking.

Yes! I've had that game for like 353253 years. I was almost done with it at the time, then forgot about it, then restarted the game since I didn't remember what was going on, then forgot about it again.

You know. One of those.
