    As another Squaddie that’s benefitted from @shingro‘s generosity, I continue to feel grateful for this “little huddle that could” and insist that it’s still the best one on the innernetz. Thanks!

    @feenwager Fucking sold. Will accrue ASAP.

    @bowlisimo Art is, of course, subjective…but as someone that persevered through all 9 zillion levels of Super Meat Boy, I think you’d be missing out if you don’t give it a shot.

    @feenwager Rayman looks very French, and by that I mean beautiful, creative and stylistically off-beat. Something about its Ren & Stimpy weirdness isn’t working for me, at least from videos, but I’ve never been a Rayman fan anyway, so who cares what I think.

    I’m with you though, 2D games like that are still great fun, and all the more appealing now that we’ve more or less dicked around with 3D ever since we had the technology.

    @beige I don’t really have any expectations other than blonde, katana, and eventually I’m assuming the Gray Fox robo-ninja treatment. I doubt I’ll hate him. Like I said when I started this, I’m giving Kojima a lot of slack. He’s not even close to running out yet. It’s not so hard with all of this hindsight. Maybe I would have been mad in 2001 if I were invested in the series.

    @redswir1 Understandable.

    You know why I love Rayman: Origins so much? Because I’ve been waiting for this game for about 15 years or so. When the Playstation was released, I was all about the latest round of platformers that had just come out for the SNES: Yoshi’s Island, Pitfall, and other games where it really seemed like some artistry and advancement was really coming to the genre.

    Let’s admit something: that genre ain’t broke. It’s challenge, discovery, and collecting. Nothing wrong with that formula.

    I was sure that the new wave of systems was going to usher in beautiful extensions to that formula, as well as introduce new ideas that only the newer hardware could support. Instead we got Toshinden. And Jumping Flash. Look, I know we got the original PS1 Rayman games, but there was always something just…off about them.

    Needless to say, I’ve been very pleased with the renaissance in 2D gaming over the past few years, but I really feel like Rayman is the first game that fulfills he next-gen Mario World promise.

    Yep, it’s that good.

    On another note, I had a funny thought tonight after playing some Outland (which is still awesome). Between Outland, Fancy Pants, and things like Shank, we’re finally getting the games I wanted to get when the Playstation was announced.
