But Thursday wasn’t a normal day for me! Far from it –– this Thursday marked the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in Australia. Well, technically the street date was broken (yet again), so you could pick up the game if you preordered it as early as Tuesday, but I got mine yesterday (don’t get me started on street date breaks in AU).
|Pretty sleek, no?|
As most of you should know by now, there’s one big hurdle I’ll need to overcome before I can play my copy of Skyward Sword. Namely, I don’t have a Wii! I know, I know, a little late to the party…
It’s not exactly a question of “if” I’ll get one, of course, but more like “when” –– I know there will be some holiday sales soon enough and I can’t decide whether I want to hold out until they roll around in December or not! So many decisions! In the meantime, I asked some of you on Twitter what games you’d most recommend for the console, but I decided I’d like to open the floor up to everyone. First, let’s see what games I’m most looking forward to playing…
Murasama: Demon Blade
Basically, all you have to do is utter the word “Vanillaware” and I’ll be there. The company’s amazing art direction (though the lead artist’s penchant for bubble breasts and thunder thighs leaves something to be desired…) never ceases to take my breath away, even if I’m not always a huge fan of the gameplay. Murasama‘s focus Japanese mythology makes it a must-have in my book.
Resident Evil 4
I’m putting this sucker on the list because I know my husband would quite enjoy it. I saw a significant portion of the game played back when it came out for the PS2, but I’m really just awful at tense games where I’m required to shoot things. I’ve heard the Wii controls really shine in this game, so I would love to see my husband give it a go. Honorable mentions in the category of “games my husband and I can enjoy together” would be Donkey Kong Country Returns (can you believe he’s never played the original?) and maybe House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return.
Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon: The Labyrinth of Forgotten Time
