    Speaking of dogs (yeah, I know), I love Okami. I didn’t realize how much I wanted to play another game like this since I closed the book on Wind Waker back in college. It’s everything I do like about Japanese games, wrapped within a style of gameplay that doesn’t make it a bore to experience, to say nothing of the beauty of the art itself. The Japanese are so damn good at doing the light-hearted, high-spirited adventure with a serious goal that, once you come to the end, always leaves you feeling sad that it’s all over. It’s just too bad this kind of game doesn’t seem to sell well unless your title starts with a Z, ends with an A, and rhymes with Melda.

    @rocgaude You’re an art book guy, ever pick this up? I’m so enamored with this game and its style right now that I think I would enjoy it.

    Also, god bless the guy who wrote the music.

    Finally polished off Mass Effect 2 tonight (and SPOILERS follow, of course). Overall, an incredible game. I was a little bit let down, however, that the “suicide mission” was actually pretty easy. While I was not particularly attached to all of the characters, I was worried about losing anybody because my Shephard would never stand for such a thing. Turns out that it’s trivially easy to keep everybody alive (although apparently that isn’t the case if you aren’t OCD about finishing every loyalty quest as I was). I would have liked a bit more of a challenge there, given that the whole game is about this terrifyingly crazy mission that will probably kill us all.

    Also, I was amused with how the game just lobbed achievements at me as the final cutscenes played. 290 achievement points at once! How about we string that out a little better next time, eh, Bioware?

    I’ll probably play a little further to clean up some achievements and finish off the side missions. Shadow Broker also looks like it’s in my future, as I hear that it’s excellent. Any thoughts on Kasumi/Overlord?
