    Audiosurf is available via Steam today. If you have a soul along with a working PC you should probably buy it.

    Been playing Professor Layton and the Curious Village for review. It's really, really great and maybe my favorite Nintendo DS game. It's a bunch of SAT-esque puzzles in the form of an adventure game with amazing Franco-Danish cartoon presentation. Also been playing Audiosurf, which I'll continue to pimp to no end. I'm currently ranked second on TV on the Radio's "Wolf Like Me" but the first place dude's song is about 30 seconds longer than everyone else's so eventually someone will report it and I'll take my throne.

    Also, CD Project RED, developer of The Witcher (probably the best PC RPG I released last year) announced they're putting out a new version (and a free patch for owners) that will fix every single little flaw the game had along with adding oodles of new content. It's essentially what most companies would put into an expansion pack and sounds really, really awesome. This is why I love PC games.[​IMG]

    I am really looking forward to Bully: Scholarship Edition coming out for 360 on March 3rd. This will easily keep me busy until GTA4.

    I traded in 2 Wii games and was able to get Brawl for $9.99. I also paid for Mario Kart and Wii Fit. So, I have Brawl coming in March, mario kart in April and Wii Fit in may. I hear brawl is packed with tons of features on the disc. It will be one of the biggest games of the year. That will be it until Madden 09 comes out this summer.

    Brawl is going to own your life. It's packed with all these fan-service, in-game "collectibles", Virtual Console demos of various games that are featured heavily in Smash Bros., online play, stage creation, etc., etc. It's ridiculous. I was supposed to have a play-session last Saturday but due to inclement weather it was rescheduled until tomorrow night. I can't wait.[​IMG]

    So, playing Smash Bros was probably a horrible idea because every day this week leading up until tomorrow has been null. I can't wait.

    What is everyone playing? Unfortunately, my WoW addiction has been rekindled so that's taking up most of my gaming time. Been getting in a song or two of Audiosurf semi-daily, completely finished Layton so I've been looking forward to the weekly downloadable puzzles (the last two of which have been way too easy) and I want to hop back into Rez HD and defend my high score. Also, should be getting the Japanese version (comes out in June in the US) of Space Invaders Extreme for DS in any time now for review. It looks pretty neat. They've retooled the formula into this synaesthetic, comb-driven experience.

    Anyone get Wipeout Pulse? I used to be a huge fan and I'm wondering how the "definitive" version turned out. Just found out the new Winning Ele...I mean, Pro Evolution Soccer comes out Tuesday. Jesus...

    Don't like the new Pro Evo soccer (loved 5, 6-7 were let downs) ... think Fifa is a much better game. The game play feels very 'forced'.

    I recently dug up my ancient computer in order to play some of those old 80s and early 90s games. They're great, especially the adventure games. Why don't they have good adventure games anymore? Last great one I played was Grim Fandango.

    I'm also playing some of the Paradox games, possibly the most historically detailed and accurate games I've ever played in my life: Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron. For gods sake, you can even play as Afghan generals during WW2!

    Super Smash Brothers Brawl just came out last night at 12:00am and I've been playing it non-stop for the past 7 hours (actually 6 hours... damn daylight savings). Smash bros truly is a time suck.

    Despite all the advances and new characters since melee and the original version, I still always stick with pikachu and kirby.

    Anyone have a home remedy for carpal tunnel?

    I just cracked my copy of Smas Bros!!! WOW!! It is an awesome game. I am new to gaming and never played the one on Gamecube. It seems like their is a ton of content on the disc. I am going to be playing it all day on my next day off. It is the best game I have ever played.

    Am I the only one who really hate SSB? I find it twitchy and annoying, it gives me headaches, it's really repetitive and the graphics are meh. Basically I don't like having my eyes raped by thousands of bright flashes/sec and tons of jaggies.

    Maybe it's just me.

    I love it but I can sympathize. The adventure mode sucks and it does get way too busy on screen. Four-player is garbage because it just turns into an infuriating clusterfuck. I still love it though.
