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.
