The Virtual Console for Wii is probably the best fucking thing to have ever happened to video games. Some people may argue and say it's just an emulator that costs money, but I disagree.
Yep, I have played tons of games on my emulator and loved many of them. If I come across an emulated game that I dislike, I just don't have to play it and it didn't cost me any money. Sure, that's all good, I'm not going to argue with that. However, when I come across one of the games I love, I definitely don't mind having given a small amount of cash to the company that made it. Virtual Console games are cheap as fuck, but I still give them something and it's still enough so that if I do come across a game that I immediately dislike, I still feel that I should play it because I spent some money on it. This means that I give even the horrible games a chance and thus get a better insight into why they are horrible--something I actually enjoy doing.
And then there are the controls. Using the keyboard just fucking sucks, and, unlike Marshall, I have hated every single gamepad I've ever tried. But the Wii controller and the classic controller are perfect for the games available on Virtual Console (N64 being something of an exception).
In an attempt at going through some random virtual console games, my brother and I sat down one weekend with a lot of Wii Points and a set of dice. We would then roll the dice to determine what game to download, and then we were forced to play it for at least 30 minutes. It ended up costing us quite a bit of money, but it was fun and we came across of lot of shitty as well as good games.
Below you will find some short comments on various Virtual Console games that I've bumped into over the years. It is far from a complete list, but I shall keep adding to it when I feel like it.
1080°: TenEighty Snowboarding (N64)
I didn't get this game as an experiment. I got this game because I already knew it was the best fucking snowboard game I've ever played. If you want a trick fest, you may be better off with some other games. Sure, this game does have tricks, but it's not taken to an exaggerated extreme like in so many other games of the same genre. The best thing about this game is the feeling. The feeling of plowing through the powder snow, scraping along over a patch of ice, and making jumps and tricks when you get an opportunity to--because it's fun, and not to collect points.
Adventures of Lolo (NES)
Quite a fun little puzzle adventure. It's almost like a less punishing version of Solomon's Key. If you like puzzle games, it's definitely worth checking out.
Alien Crush (TG16)
When we first got this game, we did not expect it to be a golf game. And it wasn't. It was a pinball game, something we also hadn't expected. I don't remember much about it, other than being slightly entertained by it. If my memory serves me right, this, like Pinball, also just includes a single stage, but divided into two along with some bonus stages. If you like pinball games, go for it. Otherwise, don't.
Adventures of Lolo 2 (NES)
If you already have the first game in the series, you don't need this--the same goes for the other way around. They are basically the same. Sure, they are fun, but not fun enough to warrant two purchases.
Balloon Fight (NES)
Hell yeah! This game is fun. For details, just read the full review.
Blades of Steel (NES)
Haha. This game sucks. If you want a hockey game for the NES, just get Ice Hockey.
Bomberman '93 (TG16)
It's not quite on the same level as the Super Bomberman series, but it's still a Bomberman game. Hell, it supports five players! If you have anyone else to play with, get it. If you play alone, then don't bother.
Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (TG16)
You think you have seen it before, but no, this is just not an adventure, like the first game, this is a big adventure. I would like to call Hudson fucking liars, but I can't prove them wrong as I didn't manage to get far enough into the game to know whether or not it's a big adventure. I have no idea how the series managed to survive this far. It shouldn't have.
Bonk's Adventure (TG16)
Man, I had a good laugh when I first got this game. If I hadn't already seen Marshall's screenshots of it, I would've been shocked as well. It feels like this game has been developed by people who just had a thought and decided that, "hey, I've heard about this thing called 'video games,' we should totally create one." If you had made the game yourself, you would be quite pleased with it and force it onto your friends, who would find some entertainment in it because they knew the guy who made it. However, I don't know the guy who made it, so I just find it boring after the first stage.
The first stage is in fact quite fun, but it's pretty damn obvious that the people who made it don't have much, if any, experience from games. The slight fun fades away quickly and then it's just boring, but playable. It's weird. I wouldn't recommend buying it, but if you for some reason do, you can probably find yourself playing it.
Bonk's Revenge (TG16)
The second part of the Bonk series. At this point, it has already survived for too long. I barely remember anything from the game at all, other than that thought. If you find the look of the cavekid amusing, get any of the Bonk games, but no more than one of them.
Breath of Fire II (SNES)
The SNES had lots and lots of good CRPGs, and this is one of them. If you like CRPGs, this is a must-play. This game kept me sane when I was without Internet access for a week.
Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES)
The first generation of Castlevania was good, but far from the same quality as games such as Symphony of the Night and Dawn of Sorrow. They were a bit slower and a lot harder. If you simply enjoy the later games in the Castlevania series, this isn't really for you. However, if you're at least close to loving them, then you should definitely check this out. It's far from bad.
Chew Man Fu (TG16)
Two girls--one in blue and one in pink--kick around massive balls on a small static screen. For a single player, this puzzle action game can be quite fun, but not really worth buying. For two or more people, however, this game is holy-cockring-Batman-fucking-awesome. Haha. The game is weird to say the least. You can play two players against each other in something that is a bit like 1-on-1 football (SOCCER, FAGITS!!1). It's button-mashing-, yelling-at-each-other-, laughing-, and yelling-some-more-tastic! I have played this game in groups of five to six people, with tournaments and shit. At a first glance, the game appears to be so fucking shit and the only reason you try it out is so that you can laugh at its awfulness. But it's. . .awesome. You must have someone to play it with, though, if you want to appreciate its most likely accidental awesomeness.
Quite an entertaining puzzle game. I don't really get stuck in puzzle games, so I'm not the right person to comment on whether they are awesome or not. But if I was an eXXXtreme puzzle gamer to the maXXX, I would probably call this game awesome, or something along those lines (orgasmic, for example).
Cruis'n USA (N64)
It's not great, but it should be entertaining for a few hours at least. It's got a nice arcadey touch, but is pretty much the same all throughout the entire game.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES)
Diddy's Kong Quest? Not Diddy Kong's Quest? Huh, I always thought it was the other way around. Anyway, the Donkey Kong Country series kicked off with DKC itself. As a kid, I loved that game, was disappointed with DKC2, and fucking adored DKC3. As an adult, that has changed a bit in that I now consider the original Donkey Kong Country game to be a very good game, but not as amazingly fucking awesome as I thought back then. DKC2, however, has stepped up since then and I've really grown to love it. As all games in this series, the controls are fucking awesome, but this also has something the first one lacked in that it's easier to understand the "hoard lots of stuff" mechanics. The only thing I dislike about it are those fucking lava caves. Other than that, two Swedish thumbs up.
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble (SNES)
This game is a lot like DKC2, but more polished, extended, an improved level design, and not those fucking lava caves. What can I say? Along with Super Mario World, this has got to be the best fucking 2D platformer ever created. For more details, read the full review.
Double Dungeons (TG16)
This game is pretty sweet. You're placed somewhere in a 3D dungeon, very similar to the old 3D maze Windows screensaver. From then on, it's dungeon bashing fun. One step at a time, you make your way through the maze--with absolutely no form of map or landmarks, besides a shop which is somewhere in the maze--fighting various creatures you come across on the way. The goal is to get a key and unlock the door leading out of the maze.
All in all, this game is very much like an old table top RPG forced into a video game. But! It allows two players to run through the dungeon at the same time, apparently competing to see who can finish it first. If you bump into each other, you can fight, fight, fight and stuff. It's actually quite entertaining. At least for me, who's a POWERNERD. My brother, who is just slightly less nerdy, grew bored of it after a few hours. So yeah, if you're really nerdy, as far as RPGs go, and have an equally nerdy friend, I suggest trying it out.
Dragon Spirit (TG16)
The TurboGrafx-16 had a lot of pretty sweet shoot 'em up games. This is one that didn't quite get up to the same standard as the likes of Soldier Blade. It's a top-down view shooter where you collect power ups for better weapons and firepower. The twist is that you control a dragon and blast your way through stages of other, living creatures (such as dinosaurs!!!1). It's quite fun, but I suggest getting Soldier Blade and Super Star Soldier instead.
Dungeon Explorer (TG16)
Like Double Dungeons, this game is clearly aimed at the nerds among nerds. It is a very D&D style game where you put together a party of up to five players (simultaneously playing, I might add) of different classes. The party is obviously created in a tavern (where els can u put 2gether a party?!!) and then you head into the dungeons together to kick the shit out of hordes of monsters. All five of you share the same continues, and it can be quite hectic fun running through the dungeons together. However, you will also keep getting in each others' ways, which can be a bit annoying from time to time. The controls are also suffering a bit, especially if you want to attack diagonally. But eh, personally I recommend trying it out if you have at least two people to play with. Everyone else I've played with disagrees and claims it's shit.
Ecco the Dolphin (MD/Gen)
I had some faint memories of this game being good. I was obviously wrong. Well, I shouldn't be that harsh. It's okay, but definitely not something I'd suggest buying over all the other awesome games available for Virtual Console.
F-Zero X (N64)
The first F-Zero game wasn't as awesome as many people make it out to be, in my opinion. However, that can definitely be applied to this game. 32 crafts in every race, incredible speeds, and a fucking random course generator. For a single player, this is a lot of fun. For four players simultaneously, this is amazing.
Ghosts 'n Goblins (NES)
My mom bought this game when it came out. She had not expected it to be as insanely fucking hard as it turned out to be. My dad and I had many hours of fun with it, but never managed to get further than the third stage. If you enjoy a real challenge, this is a game you should check out. If you don't have any patience, this is a game you should avoid.
Golden Axe (MD/Gen)
A 2-player arcade style beat 'em up. Don't bother with it. Get River City Ransom instead. This game is incredibly short, easy, and slow as fuck. It's fun once, but that one time doesn't last for very long.
Space shoot 'em up like a space shoot 'em up should be. Shoot stuff, collect power-ups, and die horribly. This is one of those arcade style shoot 'em ups that crowded the NES in the '80s, and is therefore a lot harder than most other shoot 'em ups released over the past 20 years. Still, this is a game you definitely have to have a look at unless you outright hate the genre.
Gunstar Heroes (MD/Gen)
This game reminds quite a bit of the Probotector/Contra series, but has its own unique style. It's fairly short, but nonetheless it is very fun for two players and holds a decent replay value. You can choose between two different control styles, but they both have their flaws and you will most likely get frustrated from it quite often. "Stop throwing me around," is a commonly heard phrase when playing two players.
Harvest Moon (SNES)
A farming simulator? Hell yeah! I don't like how positive and overly excited I am writing this, so I apologize, but again. . .this game is amazing. It is a lot simpler than the later games in the Harvest Moon series, which of course means that it lacks a few things. A negative thing is that you only get to play for roughly three years, which means that you may not have enough time to get your farm as massive and impressive as you want it. However, it adds replay value in that you will want to get a better and better farm every time you play it. It's simple yet complex in so many wonderful ways. It may not sound all that exciting, but it is.
Ice Hockey (NES)
Fuck yes. If you always play alone, you won't need this. However, if you have someone to play with, and they aren't too far away from you in terms of video game skills, this is a must have.
Kid Icarus (NES)
With the auto save function of Virtual Console, this game has become even more of a must have than it was when it was new. Back then, the passwords were a bit of a pain to record and keep track of, but now you can just turn off your Wii and you can come back to pick up exactly where you left off. This game is awesome.
The Legend of the Mystical Ninja (SNES)
This game reminds me quite a lot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV. It's not quite as fun, though, but still an enjoyable beat 'em up-y action platform type thing. Not the kind of game I get stuck in, but one that I still enjoy playing.
The Legend of Zelda (NES)
Is it even necessary to comment on this? Along with Zelda II, this is probably the most difficult game in the series. More recent Zelda games (1992 to present) have always been games where you don't die all that much, and the enjoyment isn't compromised heavily by combat challenges. This game is still Zelda in every aspect, but in an old fashioned way. Want to find the 8th labyrinth? Go for it. Here's a hint: You have to burn a tree somewhere in the world. There are a few thousand of them. Have fun. And that's the thing--somehow, it is fun! And then you get into the labyrinth and find yourself ass raped by shield eating like likes and darknuts. If you dare calling video games anything from "a slight interest" to "life" without having played this game, you ought to be shot.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
The best game ever. Yes, the best fucking game EVER. "You can't compare it to games of other genres." Yes, I can. Top 10 Racing Games of All Time? Number 1, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It's simple, really. It's the best game ever.
Lylat Wars/Star Fox 64 (N64)
I really liked Starwing/Star Fox, and when they announced a sequel to the Nintendo 64 I was a bit worried. By that point in time, games had gotten bigger and it wasn't as much about replay value as much as "it should take a hell of a long time to get through it all" value anymore. Thankfully, Nintendo did not apply this new type of experience to this game. You can complete this game in one sitting, but it has amazing replayability. There are different paths to take through the galaxy and lots of different planets to visit along the way. Along with special achievement medals--which always ends up being addictive. It also has a multiplayer mode which for three or four people can be a hell of a lot of fun (a bit empty for just two players, though).
Mario Bros. (NES)
My dad and I always played this when I was a kid. It was awesome. I got it as soon as it came out for Virtual Console, and it's still a great game. It doesn't last for that long if you play alone, but it can be a lot of fun when played together with a friend (or dad!).
Mario Kart 64 (N64)
Being the sequel to one of the best racing games ever made, this had a lot to live up to. Among reviewers, the results have been varied, but among the gamers themselves, one opinion weighs in a lot heavier than others: This game is fucking orgasmic. While Super Mario Kart had a lot more to offer in terms of challenge, this has gone far beyond it in multiplayer.
Mega Man (NES)
The Mega Man games that were released for the NES were all very similar. They are all good, challenging platformers with great controls and very thought through level design. You should at least play one of them, but that's also all you need unless you are a crazed Mega Man fan. If you're just going to get one of them, though, I would suggest 2 or 3 over this one.
Mega Man 2 (NES)
There's not much to add in addition to the first Mega Man. Well, out of all of them, this is probably my favourite. I don't seem to be as excited as I probably should be, but I've been writing this list for a long time now. Anyway, you should definitely have a look at either this or Mega Man 3, if you've never played them before. If you have played any other Mega Man games and liked them, then you should definitely get this as well.
Mega Man 3 (NES)
See the comments for Mega Man 2, really. If you only want one of them, then go with the second. With one exception: If you're a fan of the Mega Man music, then get this one over Mega Man 2. Snake Man, baby! His music is awesome (a step up even from Metal Man in Mega Man 2).
New Adventure Island (TG16)
The first thing my brother and I agreed on, after having metaphorically shot ourselves in the head with our dice, was that this game was like an even shittier version of Bonk's Adventure. It's just a really bad platformer which you'd do best in not even trying out.
Paper Mario (N64)
Short and simple, this is a very good CRPG that can be loved even by people who normally don't like CRPGs. The combat system uses menus, but also relies a lot on timing and skill, which adds an extra depth to it. However, that also means that you are likely to lose your touch if you stay away from the game for too long and then try to get into it up towards the end. Anyway, it's definitely a great game. My brother, who usually gives up on these games quite quickly, has played through it twice.
When my brother and I rolled the dice and they came out with Pinball, we burst out laughing. We really thought this game would be horrible, but then we ended up playing it for three or four hours straight. Sure, you only have one pinball table (although it has different sections, and so on), but it is a hell of a lot of fun to play on Virtual Console. The main reason it's better for Virtual Console than the NES is that your high scores actually saves as you turn off the game here. That is a very important thing for a pinball game, and probably what makes this game as addicting as we found it to be.
Pokémon Snap (N64)
This can be a bit of fun for about half an hour. Then it gets boring. All you do is ride along a rail and take photos of pokémons. Sure, if you like that you will probably enjoy the game. I didn't really, though. Like I said, it was exciting at first, but I quickly grew tired of it.
If you've ever played any R-Type game (which I hope you have), you know the drill. This is an insanely difficult shoot 'em up that does not allow mistakes. If you mess up, the game tears itself out of the Wii and kills you. The insane difficulty set aside, it's a damn good shooter. If you've tried any R-Type games and disliked them, avoid this. If not, it's definitely worth a go, especially if you're a fan of shoot 'em ups.
Sin & Punishment (N64)
I was positively surprised by this game. It held my interest for quite a while when I played it alone, but wasn't anything extremely amazing. Playing two players together added a lot to it, though, and could've been a hell of a lot of fun if only my brother would give in and play with me for longer than 5 minutes before going back to WoW.
Soldier Blade (TG16)
The sequel to Super Star Soldier. As mentioned when talking about Dragon Spirit, the TurboGrafx-16 had a lot of shooters. This is one that is fucking awesome. You must try this game. No, it's not an Axelay, but it's not that far behind. It is very similar to the first Soldier game, but still great. So get it.
Solomon's Key (NES)
Now this shit is difficult. It's a puzzle based action game where you go through a dungeon on a room-per-room basis. Get the key and unlock the door. Sounds simple enough, but it's not. This game has a slightly odd target audience in its insane action game difficulty together with the puzzle aspect. It's a nice game if you're into that stuff, but I expect most people not to be too fond of it. But if it's a challenge you want--here it is.
Sonic the Hedgehog (MD/Gen)
Ah, the playground outside school in the early '90s. The nerd kids would argue and argue over what was best: Sonic or Mario. The Sonic kid would always use his "coolness" as the main argument, but eh. . .I was never convinced. Sonic the Hedgehog is most definitely a great game, but it's not in the same class as Super Mario. It's still a game you must try out, though, even if you expect not to like it.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (MD/Gen)
Probably my favourite 2D Sonic game of all time (I'm apparently a bit different in that Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is my favourite Sonic game ever). The level design has improved from the first one and the controls are even sharper. Tails is also a very positive addition which adds a 2-player experience which goes beyond that of the Super Mario games. Even more so than the first Sonic game, this is a must buy.
Splatterhouse 2 (MD/Gen)
Hahaha. This game is so fucking horrible it's unbelievable. I don't see what made them think it would be a good thing to put it up on Virtual Console. It's slow as hell, full of bugs, and the controls are shit. Stay away from it.
Super Mario 64 (N64)
A fucking legend. Not just one of the most ground breaking games ever made, but also one of the best. As far as 3D platformers go, very few are in the same league as Super Mario 64. The classic controller isn't quite as good as the Nintendo 64 controller, though, but still, get this game if you don't already have the cartridge version.
Super Mario Bros. (NES)
No, it's not a distorted memory. This game really is that good. The controls are fucking awesome and the way the corners of the Wiimote cut into your hands brings back fond memories. Same as with The Legend of Zelda, if you consider yourself anything close to a gamer, you must have played this.
Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES)
The gameplay aspects of this game are generally very good. Level design, enemies, and the gameplay mechanics are all wonderful. However, compared to other Super Mario games, the controls in this game are somewhat disappointing--they're kind of stiff. Still, if you enjoy platformers, you will most likely enjoy it. Just don't expect absolute perfection as far as controls go.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (NES)
Super Mario Bros. 2 as it was to be known in Japan. This is basically just Super Mario Bros. with a few more background pixels and new levels. Sticking to the first game is good enough, you don't really need this.
Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)
Oh, God fucking yes. Harder. Harder! HARDER! As far as 2D platformers go, this is about as good as it gets. Along with games such as Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country 3, this is one of the best platformers ever made.
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)
When I found out that this game was not going to be released in Europe, I nearly cried. Half a decade or so later, I finally got to play it through an emulator, and it was worth the wait. This game is really, really good, but lacks a little bit in replay value. I played it for the emulator (up until a point where I had to be able to jump diagonally, which my emulator couldn't handle), and then bought it for Virtual Console as soon as it came out. However, I've only spent an hour or two playing it since I bought it. Simply because I had to replay so much of it.
Super Mario World (SNES)
They have taken Super Mario Bros. 3 and brought it to perfection. This game is a motherfucking masterpiece. Along with Donkey Kong Country 3, it is the best 2D platformer ever made. However, something this has that DKC3 doesn't is the "classic" factor. If you hate 2D platformers, sure, you don't have to play DKC3, but you do have to play Super Mario World.
Super Probotector: Alien Rebels/Contra III: The Alien Wars (SNES)
A damn good platform shoot 'em up. Alone, it may get a bit dull after a while, but with two players it's definitely worth buying.
Super Punch-Out!! (SNES)
My friend across the street had this game when we were kids, I used to borrow it and I loved it. It was released on Virtual Console this week (21 March, 2009) so I obviously had to download it. I'm glad to have found out that I wasn't too much of a naive, stupid little fuck when I was a kid--this game is fucking awesome. I command you to buy it. Now!
Seriously, it's better than any other boxing game I've ever played (not that the list is impressively long, but still). Even if you don't think you'd be all that into boxing, it's still something you should try.
Super Star Soldier (TG16)
The first game in the Soldier series. . .I think. That's just me assuming that Final Soldier, which I haven't tried, was the last game in the series. Anyway, this is an awesome game and you should definitely give it a try. Oh, and it's a top-down, upwards-scrolling shoot 'em up, in case you didn't know. The same that applies to most shoot 'em ups also applies here: Collect power ups for better weaponry and kill everything you come across.
Sword of Vermillion (MD/Gen)
Remember all the great CRPGs of the 16-bit era? Yeah, this was not one of them! This is another one of the random downloads the dice told me and my brother to get. We forced ourselves to play it for 30 minutes. The game starts with you in a small village and you're told you have to leave and quest your ass off to save the world or people in it. The story itself is a big fog now.
Anyway, we spent 30 minutes playing the game. The first 15 minutes were spent buying two potions, 10 minutes were spent walking through the village, and 5 minutes were spent wanting the 30 minutes to end. Fuck "watching paint dry" or "watching grass grow" comparisons. The best way to describe the slowness of this game is by watching mountains move. All chat in the game is displayed one letter at a time, and there is no way to make it go even remotely fast or skip it. In the stores of the game, you can buy one item at a time and have to go through all the chat for each one.
The battles look interesting when you first see them, but you soon realize that they are as horrible as the rest of this god forsaken piece of shit of a game. You should get it, though, but only so that you get to experience how awful a game truly can be, because words cannot describe it.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)
I found some kind of Turtles-addicted enjoyment in this game as a kid. I was stupid. This game sucks. It's slow as fuck and the level design is frustrating.
Volley Ball (NES)
Just no. Don't even consider getting it.
Wave Race 64 (N64)
Unlike Mario Kart 64 which became great largely because of its amazing multiplayer mode, this game is great because of its single player mode. Multiplayer in this game is fairly empty and not much to cheer about, but the single player aspects are, as mentioned, great. The waves and the feeling as you crash into one are fucking amazing.
A very repetitive shoot 'em up gone from the arcades to the NES with little (if any) modifications. It's good, though, no doubt about that. And it's difficult. Very difficult. This is the type of game you probably won't be able to play in long bursts, but it is easy to pick it up and play for just 10-15 minutes when you don't have anything better to do. It's an awesome time filler like that, but not something you'll get stuck with. Unless you're my dad and his brother--they can play this game for days without growing tired of it.
Yoshi's Story (N64)
This game is a bit like a platform version of Lylat Wars (or the other way around). It's a platformer you can play through in one sitting, which is very uncommon for these "newer" games, and instead relies heavily on replayability--something it manages very well. You can take many different paths through the game and it is definitely worth to go through it multiple times. Very good game, but it remained a bit in the shadows behind Super Mario 64.
Zelda II: The Adventures of Link (NES)
Out of all the Zelda games made so far, this is probably the one that sticks out the most. It has a very strong CRPG feel to it, with experience points, levels, and world maps. Some people hate it for it, other people love it. I'm in the latter category. In my opinion, this game is great. It's right up there with Ocarina of Time, but right below A Link to the Past and Twilight Princess.

It's time to end this somewhat hiatus and start writing video game reviews for no one again. Funny that after all of these months of college and unemployment I start wasting time with video games and shitty reviews once I finally get a job.
Also, maybe I'll start reviewing games that have been released within the past six months for once thanks to my new disposable (heavy emphasis on this word) income. Maybe.

I got an urge to collect crap for my chao in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. I had quite a lot of fun until I realised that I already had a chao with 99 in all stats. That took a bit of the fun away but I have another 16 chao I can level up. But now I'm in a mood to play Zelda instead.
May 31, 2010 - 15:53 GMT - Benny
I'm quite glad I went through with this The Green Shell idea. Combined with Hair, I've managed to build up a little backlog of updates that could last me at least a week. Although I have a feeling I'll put out a few of them at a time, which means I'll run out sooner. But yeah, while it's not necessarily easy to come up with shitty ideas for it, I have been looking around at a lot of random video game stuff over the last 12 hours and it's quite fun. I also need to play some more Star Ocean; I've got reptile aliens to kill and annoying girls to ignore! My hatred for Welch has gone down a lot since I got Lymle into my party. That annoying fuck pisses me off, 'kay.
