There's a big version of the Luchaplushie right here.
Please, Giant Bomb. Make Luchadeer plushies.
Let's Play Serious Sam HD
My commentated Serious Sam playthrough is approaching it's end. Part 17 of 21 will go up tomorrow. I die a lot, though through the magic of editing, such repetition is kept down to a minimum.
I've already played Chains, So You Go Play Chains
I haven't seen much love for this game, but it's certainly one to love. It's a simple puzzle game of connecting colors, but it's physics-y nature, moody music and overall silhouetted style is interesting. It can get a bit hectic too even on it's normal difficulty - set it to hard and you'll have yourself a challenge.
Rock Band Network
I've started experimenting with the software to get things onto the Rock Band Network. The amount of control they give you is kind of ridiculous and it sounds like a good thing until you actually start doing all the work and you realize it's kind of a pain. Basically, the whole system is MIDI. Everything is midi notes being triggered.
As expected, you have to place down the midi notes for each instrument at each difficulty level. A little tedious, but expected. Then you have to put down midi notes to trigger the animations of the on-screen characters so that they play in time with your music. They're not triggered by the prior midi notes. There's also a "venue" track for controlling the cameras and lighting and as far as I can tell, it all has to be in there or else it doesn't work right. For instance, there are no automatic/random camera changes, they're all manually placed, so if you don't place them it'll just stay at one shot the whole time. Maybe I've got that all wrong, but I guess I'll find out soon enough when I get to that part.
Mass Effect 2
I'm about 5 or 6 hours into Mass Effect 2. Just left Omega with a new squad member. Great stuff so far. Smirking impishly: I'm going to be talking like an Elcor for a while though. I think I spent an hour last night just reading the Codex entries and now there are new ones in there. Rhagharhagh.
Also, listening to Patriarch ramble on is great.
