So the birthday comes around again, bringing with it a bit of disposable income to buy games with. Hoorah!
I went out shopping today, and apart from the obligatory bottle of Jack Daniels and slab of Carlton's I came home with three games: Mass Effect, Banjo Kazaooie: Nuts and Bolts, and Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. All of them were marked down to Au$44 each, which is a bit of a steal. Funny thing was, I had to scout around to three separate shops to find a copy of Mass Effect. Neither EB or JB had a copy, not even in their pre-owned piles! In the end, I had to settle for GAME, and was a little uneasy when the pricetag was 70 bucks. Turns out though, that their computer said it was only $44, so I got a hat trick. Nice birthday present!
Speaking of birthday presents, my review of Star Ocean: The Last Hope made the front page, on my birthday no less. Thanks Giant Bomb! :) Star Ocean is one of those games that if you go for it looking for an interactive movie, you'd probably be disappointed, but the game side of it is pretty damn awesome.
Time to dig in to some games... Which one should I play first?
