Super Meat Boy will return because I am SO FREAKING CLOSE to unlocking The Kid. For now, Hinkle is going to be playing Battlefield: Vietnam with the rest of the Joystiq crew. I've honestly never seen this game in multiplayer so Im at least interested :X

At least SOMEBODY is relaxing. I'm about to eject myself from this planet.

Hey all! I'm hiding out in San Francisco for the New Years, surfing on the couch of Joystiq's @DaveHinkle and we're going to be streaming games all week long. Expect a lot of Super Meat Boy, Super Street Fighter IV and apparently some Battlefield and Deadliest Warrior of all things. Can I teach Dave how to not Flash Kick every 2 seconds? Can I defeat Super Meat Boy's dark worlds? Tune in to find out!

When I finally decided to cave in and buy the home versions of Pop'n Music (We still didn't have a machine in NorCal and my monthly visits to LA weren't enough) I think I spent over $400 bucks for the controller and all the PS2 versions of the game up until that point. But that was one big shipment. As for single items, I spent $130 on the Mushihime-sama Futari Limited Edition for Xbox 360, but that was largely because the LE came with one one of the DLC packs that would have been a pain in the ass to purchase off the Japanese Marketplace.
 
Edit: Also, I do want to say that I think importing new titles is a lot more affordable these days. If you want a Japanese PS3 or 360 game the week of release, you'll probably only pay $10 bucks over the retail price. I remember importing PSOne games for $100 bucks and it sucked.

For the record, I went to go take a nice picture like all the Wikipedia people, but then that failed so I went with the headshot from my cancelled late-90's sitcom about fighting game players, "My Two Mix-Ups." I was the snarky 2D player who ALWAYS had to get the first hit on the button checks. Oh my, it was CRAZY. I can't believe CBS wouldn't green light it.

Congratulations by MGMT. Nothing else really comes close for me. It's such an unexpected follow up from a team of pop music masterminds. Who knew they'd top Oracular Spectacular with ... melodic, spooky beach rock? It's so good I bought it twice (Digital, then vinyl).
 
Other favorites of the year are "The Suburbs" by Arcade Fire, "How I Got Over" by The Roots, "Shut Up, Dude" by Das Racist and "Something for Everybody" by DEVO.
