Borderlands 2 Trailer

Best game trailer of this year! (last year’s winner)

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

, , on November 12, 2011

It feels like not so long ago Twilight Princess was released, and now, 5 years later, Skyward Sword will be available on November 20th. Today, for the first time in a couple of years, I drove to Gamestop to buy a Wii MotionPlus (the last one in stock, heads up) in preparation. The game itself is very sadly practically ruined by lack of 1080p support, but the music and artwork are beautiful, the motion controlled gameplay is undoubtedly the best of its kind, and the mood created is suitably epic, touching, windy, and free.

Playing for 9 more hours, I’m not going to continue any longer. The first hour was apparently the most, and only, enjoyable part of the game– it goes entirely downhill after you venture to the Surface, so downhill that it isn’t even worth playing. I don’t feel bothered to list all of the gameplay (unresponsive controls, overresponsive enemies), design (everything is a dungeon, surprisingly easy to get lost), graphic style (ugly and washed out), and narrative (almost nonexistent, hardly any interaction with hardly any characters) shortcomings, but the result is that the game is not at all fun or interesting to play. A crushing disappointment.

Sword & Sorcery

Soundtrack from the iPad game Sword & Sorcery, which I can’t play, but it looks interesting. Supposedly the music is the best part; at least we have that. Since the website is impossible to navigate, this is the app store link.

Listening Room

, on January 22, 2011

You make a room, anyone in the room uploads a song, everyone in the room hears it, and you can chat. Basically a music playlist chat room. No registration required; it is as simple as making a room name. It even includes album art, the animated record behaves as a real record, and it is monetized.

Check out the mefi room for starters. Hopefully this great website survives another four weeks.
