Blog Between Blogs: Holiday Edition


It's also Soundtrack of the Year...

And finally, oh hey, what�s this? BlazBlue, my game of the year? Blasphemy, you say, why not something like Demon Souls, or Modern Warfare 2, of Assassin�s Creed 2, or Uncharted 2?

Well, first off, I haven�t played ANY of those titles, save for Uncharted 2, which is a really nice game from what I�ve played. And second off, BlazBlue got me back into a genre I hadn�t touched in 9 years.

The last fighting game I had owned before BlazBlue was MvC2 for the Dreamcast, and it wasn�t even my Dreamcast. I haven�t properly played, much less owned a fighting game since, nor had I any need too. Sure, I dabbed with Melee a lot, and watched a whole lot of Evo, but never did I ever sit down and try to better myself. Not until BlazBlue came along.

BlazBlue changed me; I started playing again, hours non-stop. I started training, I was beginning to memorize combos, I was actually winning matches, I was frames away from beating Yojimbo once (he�ll deny it to hell and back, but deep down, he knows he�ll never play with Ragna again), I was beginning to be good at a fighter. Hell, if it came down to it, I would have bought a fight-stick to really get down and dirty with. I think I spent more time with BlazBlue over the summer and into October than any other game I had on the PS3, save Burnout Paradise. So yeah, saying it's my GOTY is nothing short of being right for me. Because of BlazBlue, I�m looking forward to trying Super Street Fighter 4, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and any other 2D fighting games anyone wants to throw at me.

Oh yeah, and BlazBlue PSP. I�ll jump on that as soon as I want buy a PSP.

And well, that�s it for the Holiday Edition. I think this Blog Between Blogs thing might be a starting series for me as I try to get my ass in gear and write something that deserves its own title. Plus, it allows me introduce little things I can say I invented for this blog series on my own, such as this thing I like to call �the Hitlist�:

� Found this really great TF2 podcast called �Kritzkast�. I subscribed on name alone.
� Bayonetta is going to be awesome. Using �Fly Me to the Moon� as an opening cut scene theme means greatness.
� Really looking forward to Bad Company 2. I hear it brings teamwork, which means I can do other things besides getting killed and trying (and failing) to kill others.
� PodToid is recognized on the Zune Marketplace. Robotic Takeover is imminent.
� The Jet Set Radio Future soundtrack is golden.

Yeah, I think I like how that turned out.

Anyways, I�m out till 2010. Merry Belated Christmas, Happy Belated Hanukah, Happy Holidays and have a Happy New Year.
