This week’s Fun Club project has launched: BioShock. I guess we’ll be kicking off new Fun Club topics on Tuesdays from now on, since that seems to be when the games arrive. And with as many big games as are coming out this fall, the bulk of our endeavors over the next few months will be focused on their delights. So! Go talk about BioShock. Maybe I will be able to join in the fun… but probably not. Current review projects aside, I still gotta finish MGS3. Zut alors.
Two new reader-submitted articles for today:
First, bobservo tackles Brave Fencer Musashi, a charming little PlayStation game that only actually caught anyone’s attention because it came packed with the Final Fantasy VIII demo. I never managed to finish it, myself, but I guess that’s because I don’t have patience for games so sloppily programmed that you actually fall through the moving platforms you’re trying to jump on — regardless of how whimsically endearing they may be. But the memory of Scribe Shanky lives forever in my heart regardless.
And secondly, Talking Time regular Brandon takes a break from his usual modus operandi of plastering the forums with groan-inducing puns to take a fascinating look at Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. See, I told you it was going to come back to haunt me again today. My growing antagonism toward the game’s cruel spite aside, I strongly recommend you read this particular write-up, because it is… what’s the word? Oh yes. Hilarious.
Tomorrow: Man, I don’t even know. Maybe I’ll drop oblique hints about how much I’m enjoying the games I’m reviewing to see what I can get away with saying before crossing the “broken embargo” threshold.
