No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle: The sequel to one of my favourite Wii games, Desperate Struggle fixes a lot of what was wrong with the original, but also feels a little hollow. Although the first NMH had a lot of filler, the sequel has essentially none, and the game feels oddly paced because of it.
I love the 8-bit mini-games, but now they’re entirely optional, and there don’t seem to be any side-quests. Without the need to make money between boss fights, I feel like I’m just blasting my way through the game instead of taking the time to really enjoy the experience.
A bunch of classics: The Nerd Olympics 2010 are fast approaching, and for me, that means hardcore training. In the last couple weeks, I’ve revisited Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Tetris, Bomberman, and many other classics. What’s great about a lot of these games is that while I’ve thoroughly played and beaten them, I haven’t necessarily 100%-ed them, which means I still have plenty to do. Beating the staff ghosts in Mario Kart is a fun challenge.
