Ahhh…
There’s nothing quite like buying a game you’ve been looking for for well over ten years. The satisfaction of thinking you somehow beat the system, found a gem, and finally attained the sought after holy grail of your collection is exhilarating. Until you realize there’s about 400 other rare games you’re still looking for!

Review: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

The Lord of the Rings is among the greatest fantasy epics ever told, and after the success of the movie franchise a bevy of tie-ins products, side stories, and other media was created to expand the universe. Snowblind’s newest action title is set in the land of Middle Earth but does not follow the paths of Frodo, Aragorn, or Gandalf; instead it tells an entirely new story. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North acts as a side car to the main storyline, telling of the heroic deeds of three brave warriors whose actions directly impacted the success of the Fellowship. Grab your axe, sharpen your swords, and get ready to kill some orcs.

Worth Playing vol. 1

There’s way too many video games to play. Way too many. While everyone will undoubtedly have their favorites there are certain games that might get passed by that shouldn’t have. Maybe it’s a game that came out while another, bigger game was released. Or perhaps its something you’ve just completely overlooked altogether. In the first volume of Worth Playing I’m looking at a few games that may or may not have flew under your radar but should be considered regardless. Let’s get going.

Modern Classics: Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix

Wha-Wha-What?! Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Mix? Yeah, it exists, and I was more than happy to grab the game earlier this week and pop it in to the ol’ PS2. Easily one of the hardest to find DDR games available in the US, DDR Disney mix offers up the same DDR dancing experience just with a Mickey Mouse twist. What more could you want?! Well… apparently you can want more content.

Sunday Roundup: 11/6/11

After a relatively slow week last week with only Kirby’s Return to Dream Land being added to the collection, the following week walks a strangely similar path. The new Lord of the Rings title, War in the North, has come into my possession this week for a review. Slow weeks are fun too, but hopefully I can find some better deals here soon.

Review: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Nintendo is magic. That’s the only way I can describe the company. Whenever they release a new game in an old franchise I feel like a kid again. It takes me back to the early 90’s when I grew up exploring Hyrule, saving the Mushroom Kingdom, and escaping planet Zebes. Now I’ve returned to Dream Land with Kirby’s Return to Dream Land for the Wii. Ditching the yarn in favor of a more traditional outing, Kirby inhales enemies, copies abilities, and positively drips nostalgia. Oh, and did I mention the co-op adventure mode?

Now Playing: The Sims Social

I honestly can’t believe I am writing about this, yet alone that I’m playing the game. But alas, I have finally succumbed to the onslaught of Facebook games and played The Sims Social. I have only dabbled in the Sims series outside of the awesomeness that is Sim City (and subsequently Sim City 2000), so playing The Sims Social is my first deep venture into the series. And into Facebook gaming as well. After spending a little over a week the game, as per my girlfriend’s request, I can safely say I’m addicted. For better or for worse. If you’ve got a Facebook account, time to kill, and a penchant for tinkering with a person’s life, you should be addicted too!
