It is inauspicious to launch into a new decade by posting a picture of Cheetahmen on the front page? Probably. But then, the decade doesn’t actually end for another year, so I guess I’m safe.
We still have a long way to go to get through the online edition of GameSpite Quarterly 3, so I guess it’s good for me to begin the new year all dutifully and stuff. Today’s entries include a sort of crappy Captain Commando entry by myself — it really doesn’t do justice to Section Z, I’m afraid. But that’s OK, because balancing it out is Nich’s brilliant Cheetahmen entry. My advice? Load the link at the bottom of the page in a separate tab and sing along aloud as the tune plays.
In other news, I decided to give a little more time to Order of Ecclesia now that I’m armed with the knowledge that the game includes a Vagrant Story-style weapon affinity system. If only the game itself had bothered to inform me! It’s less annoying this way, though still somewhat irritating. Even the appeal of playing it on the opulent DSi LL can’t quite overcome my annoyance at its general tediousness! At the moment, I’m having a much better time with Final Fantasy VIII and Avernum VI, so… I guess maybe I’ll try Ecclesia again in another year. Maybe if I keep chipping away at it an hour or two at a time, I’ll have it beaten by the next time the calendar flips the tens digit.
