You know what? I'd already written this one up and completely forgot about doing so. After reviewing the entry, I stand behind my original comments.

It's not that I'm forgetful, honest. I've got a review for Rise of Nightmares waiting in the wings. As soon as I get some video from someone, we'll be set.

When I had discovered the impossibly awesome newspapers last week I had also found that [livejournal.com profile] dr_tectonic's grandmother had saved some of his childhood toys, a few of which were of interest to me.

Whew! Since the breakup, I've lost many games from my stash; losing the PS3, handing over the Wii and GameCube to friends, and just selling off others changed the roster considerably. Still, being the gamer at heart (not to mention my ongoing unemployment), I find I'm poised to resume my game commentary/creative writing project. This will happen a few times a week, discreetly tucked behind a cut as usual. Hopefully this won't drive any of you off, but if it does happen, I won't take offense. The project resumes tomorrow barring inexplicable implosion of my internal organs or some such freak accident.

I wanted to get a bit of time in with the Kinect to see if it falls in the category of 'gimmick toy' (e.g., Power Glove) or innovative gadget (e.g., Playstation's Move). I think that there is certainly room for improvement in the device, but as far as interactive gaming goes the Kinect is a step in the right direction.

This post is rather contingent on the understanding of the core gameplay mechanics from Marvel vs. Capcom 3, one of the newest fighting games from CAPCOM, as well as some knowledge of the politics behind the update. I'll try to be brief about it all before moving on to my commentary about the newest features of the game.

I've had a handful of folk tell me that they missed my write-ups for the One Game, One Day, One Year project. Hey, me too; I enjoyed the writing, the retro-gaming, and the praise or snark that would emerge. As I mentioned, I felt that my retro games were rather out of touch with what's happening in modern gaming, and being unemployed prevented me from trying out the newest materials. (I'm just dying to try out Child of Eden for the Xbox Kinect!)

However, as there are some titles that I actually do feel the need to purchase, I found myself at the point where I had to liquidize portions of my Collection to acquire said titles and the OGODOY project helped me find which ones were the first to leave my house. the Collection is now down to under the 365 mark, meaning that the OGODOY project is now impossible to accomplish, which is fine as this is all an embarassment of riches anyway. What I'm going to do is convert the OGODOY project to a new proejct simply called "The Collection." These are still games that I own, but I won't need to do them on some preposterous schedule.

In short: no income, no more OGODOY, now it's Collection. My next entry covers the title I picked up today.
