Holy Shit, Braid is Amazing

I finished Braid last night, and I'm regretting not doing it sooner. Everything about it, from the unique time mechanics to the beautiful art and style to the story that really makes you think, feels like a breath of fresh air in this shooter-filled next generation. Not that there's anything wrong with that; it's just nice to have something really different for a change. I spent almost an hour on forums and Google looking at theories and discussion about the ending. It's been a while since something, let alone a game, has made me think about it that much.

I've been playing a lot more Fallout 3 recently, too. I think I might have underestimated its depth. Some of the decisions look bad either way, and sometimes it feels like nothing is the best option. There so much to do in D.C.... I want to get the new DLC, but hope to at least finish the main story first.

I can't wait for Bionic Commando next month. From what I've seen, not only does it look like it has a great single player experience, but it looks like it'll have some replayability with all the challenges.

Braid does look really fun. I never downloaded it but I did want to play it. Fallout 3 is definitely a game I need to get back in to. Bionic Commando looks really fun, too after watching some videos on it. As for your last blog, I didn't notice it because I was on Spring Break but that's yet another person who has copied my blog idea! Hope it works out for you!

Haha, I'm already a week behind. Maybe I'll make it bi-monthly or something.
