Jorge Drexler mentions a "cámara oscura" in this song so I'm posting it.

I just freaking love Jorge Drexler.

I played a fair bit of Happy Street back when I first got my iPhone a couple years ago. It was interesting to see how the free-to-play hooks worked and whether a game could be interesting on its own merits while also trying to get you to pay money for extra stuff. I eventually got tired of the slog and repetition, and have never been the kind to get sucked exclusively into one "addicting" game, but I can see where people end up getting trapped into these things. It would be nice if they were more discerning I guess and had more self respect than that.

If this shows up at Red Box I'll totally check it out. Can't hurt.

I thought soul calibur 2 was the agreed on high point.

Tekken as a series, though, is much stronger for sure.

You guys are right. Like, it's not even close, 2 is by far the best.

I mean, original Soul Calibur is a good game for sure, but 2 is just so much better. It refined everything, and added good characters, like Talim.

Everything SC3 and onward is completely retarded though.

Yeah it seems the games press is deadset on thinking the relatively clunky and ugly Dreamcast game is the best somehow. For the time I can see why it was cool, but II was a much more polished, interesting game overall and didn't have the annoying baggage that the subsequent games did (custom equipment, armor break, etc.)

I've gone back and played Canvas Curse fairly recently, and it's still novel and neat, but the gameplay really hasn't aged that well. I was worried it might not translate well to the gamepad/TV screen combo.

I still haven't beaten Triple Deluxe or Epic Yarn so I'll be returning my copy of this. Just don't have time for it. The other reviews out there really haven't convinced me that it's worth my time.

I feel like the vast majority of not-crazy people will agree with you. Hell, I know I do. The real question is, who was the best guest character? Wait wait no, I'm sorry, the actual real question is who was the best guest character and why was it Spawn? COME AT ME

Honestly, even as a huge Zelda fan and as a GameCube SCII owner, I actually like playing as Spawn most when it comes to the bonus characters. He's great to play with and interesting. Link is pretty weak and annoying and none of my friends or I would ever use him after a while because any other character (well, most of the other characters) could handily kick his butt.

Heihachi was the laziest, dumbest guest character ever though. Spawn and Link were at least something different. Heihachi was just a Tekken character that Namco had to slightly remap some moves to.

Yay! Love it when Mary's on. She's loads of fun and has tons of enthusiasm for games the GB crew sometimes aren't all that into.

It also helps that she's stinking hot. But hey, who's noticing? ;)

Sega is doing a way better job with the 3DS virtual console stuff than Nintendo. That makes no sense.
