Death Jr Root of EvilDeath Jr.: Root of Evil
Release Date: May 27th, 2008
Purchased at: GameStop (San Jose, CA – $5)

Though GameStop didn’t hold a big Buy 2 Get 1 Free event like I was hoping they would, I still managed to snag a couple of games, starting with Death Jr.: Root of Evil on the Wii. This is actually the second Death Jr. game, with the first being on the PSP. This is also a port of the second game, also appearing first on the PSP. The Wii version offers up slightly altered gameplay mechanics, as well as changes and additions to incorporate the Wii’s motion controls. Overall the game and series aren’t the greatest around, but it’s a nice addition to the library nonetheless.

Mays Myster Forbidden MemoriesMay’s Mystery: Forbidden Memories
Release Date: September 28th, 2011
Purchased at: GameStop (San Jose, CA – $5)

Oh man, FINALLY! I have been looking for this game for over a year now, and I can say the wait is over. May’s Mystery is a late DS game that clearly was inspired (copied?) the Professor Layton series. Hell, even the boxart looks just like Layton’s. The cool thing though is that the game is supposed to be pretty good. I’m happy to have found it so cheap and complete! I might have to pop this one in soon. Also, that “Forbidden Memories” subtitle was used for the Yu-Gi-Oh game on the PS1. Haha.

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
