Stupid Monday blog.

Some More 'bo

So, Limbo. That happened. If I can talk about the ending without really talking about the ending for a minute, I'm still reeling, but it's not from the impact of it so much as the lack thereof. Imagine a backwards world where up is down, left is right, and the greatest punches are those that never happen. There, people eat the strawberry strip in Neopolitan ice cream and Limbo's ending is profound. Instead, we live here in the land of lacking. I've taken a few days to think it over and I'm reaching the same conclusion - the game ultimately doesn't do enough to comment on any of the themes or ideas it tugs into the light over the course of the story.

About Beyamorone of us since 1:10 PM on 06.24.2009

I�m a gamer. Take a minute and get over that shock. I can say I�m an Xbox man, though I�ll support anything that advances gaming (I love you Sackboy). I�ve also got a DS Chunky, so I can take this whole nerd thing on the road.

As far as genres, shooters and western RPGs top my list. Halo, Fable, and Morrowind, for instance, rock my socks hard. Of course other things, stuff like Animal Crossing and Kingdom Hearts, do their share of stocking rocking.

In the world outside of buttons and pixels, I�m an engineering student (that nerd thing I mentioned? I do it hardcore) on the west coast of the Great White North. I�m a fan of a harder rock, bands like Breaking Benjamin and Hurt, though I�ll kick it (very much figuratively) to stuff ranging from The Fray through Franz Ferdinand to Five Finger Death Punch. Optimus Prime is my hero, but I do love Starscream. Finally, thumbs up to you for reading this. You�re never getting that time back.
