Scatter Storming. Issue #037

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

I’m in a really pissy mood today. Some of you have even felt the effects of it. Oh well, even the friendly ones need a day to hate humanity. So fuck you all. On to games.

One trophy away from a platinum -
My first. Maybe it means absolutely nothing, but I’m excited. It’s something like gamer cred. Only Nate Liles and my friend Alex Aitman have a higher trophy level than me, so it’s a bit of a metagame. Also, the RPG skin to the whole system has me suckered.

The point is that I legitimately enjoy Ratchet and Clank, so getting the Platinum is more of a bonus for my time with the title.

Scott Pilgrim -
Enh. It’s got a cool 8/16 bit graphical style, and the music fits right in with that vibe. I was expecting a side scrolling beat-’em-up, but after Castle Crashers, Scott Pilgrim seems a little dry.

Then again, I got to play Castle Crashers with Riddles and these games are best suited for multiplayer. Also, I’m only one level in and haven’t really powered up enough to explore the movesets and items, so I’m reserving judgement. I’ll play some more before the day is up.

Oh man, this is good Dr. Pepper -
I can’t believe I was debating which drink to get. This is hitting the spot. Pure syrupy deliciousness.

What the fuck games are coming out? -
I don’t give a shit. I wrote that Dr. Pepper thing 6 hours ago. Since then I visited my mother, came home, and continued to be in a pissy mood. Riddles didn’t pick up the phone today, I missed chair hockey, I think I’m sick, I didn’t sleep long enough, and I just want to throw a tantrum and be coddled. I don’t want to be a grown up today.

So yes, no games are coming out. None. Not until Metroid. Fuck that shit.

GIVE ME AIR CONDITIONING! -
So I can play piano again.

That’s it. Nothing more. Disappointed? I don’t care, go eat a fuck.

(sorry, I love you guys, I just needed to let all that out)
