So I beat some games, and I started some new ones. Madworld is one of them, although I'm playing on hard now, not because it's much different (although you do unlock a double chainsaw and katana) but because the game is so damn incredible. The soundtrack, the style, atmosphere, story, gameplay, everything about Madworld is amazing. What other beat em' up do you get to fight thugs, ninja's, aliens, robots, zombies, giant robots, pimps, players and pain purveyors (lol), with countless weapons and countless ways to use them? The last boss fight is one of the most epic boss battles I've ever seen or played. The quick time events have you go fist to fist with the last boss, and it looks like something out of Dragon Ball Z, or some over exaggerated anime. I won't spoil who he is or I would have included a link to the fight in this blog, but the final boss is someone you wouldn't expect. It's a pretty awesome twist, and Madworld is filled with twists. If you own a Wii it's the best $12 you'll spend in awhile. It's definitely a must have, it's not something I'll forget about anytime soon.
I also beat Edge on my itouch this weekend, I was stuck on the last few levels for awhile. Edge is a one of a kind game, the type of game that you could label as art. It has a strangely spacey atmosphere, it's style is reminiscent of marble madness on the NES. If you have an iphone or itouch, I definitely recommend getting it. Mobigames is a great developer and Edge is one of the best games on the iphone/itouch.

There are few other games I've played recently. I actually beat Sonic R on Sonic Gems Collection. I always thought that game is impossible but it's actually a lot of fun when you get the hang of it. I just don't understand how you can't walk backwards at all, I mean, a racing game without reverse? Unless you can reverse and somehow I just can't figure it out, either way I didn't need it to beat the game, but it is annoying. I haven't unlocked all the characters yet so I guess it's not a full complete. I don't know if I want to unlock that tails doll :P
So what am I playing now? Zack and Wiki, Elebits, Excitebots, and Sonic Triple Trouble. I guess that's about it, if anything else seems interesting in my gaming life I'll be sure to blog. Until then, "The Dude Abides".
