Friend: Before I had my coffee I was thinking "hey, if Donkey Kong is in Mario Kart, why can't Pikachu be?" ...then I remembered DK is part of the Mario universe. -_-;

Me: Hang on, you might be on to something... Super Smash Bros. Kart. THINK ABOUT IT.

Friend: ....MOTHER OF GOD :O

Yes, do think about this.

We decided that in addition to the normal Mario Kart powerups, each character should also have some special ability of their own but might require the player to have collected a certain number of coins to use. Like, Link can shoot swords if he's full up on coins, like he does in most of the games when he's full up on hearts. Bub and Bob shoot bubbles that slow down or temporarily trap other players. Samus's morph ball works kinda like a Bullet Bill. Ness and Lucas PK people off the road.

And Solid Snake's unlockable kart would, of course, simply be an overturned cardboard box scooting along the track.

DO THIS SHIT, NINTENDO

I finished Persona a couple nights ago–bad ending, I answered one lousy question from Mai wrong, so I’ll need to do another proper playthrough later. For now, I’m in the Snow Queen side quest, and… and, uh…

Okay, Moo? When you said there was a penis in it? I’m not sure what I was expecting but suffice it to say that a) this wasn’t it and b) that was an awesome thing to have to fight just before I went to bed, really D:

(how have I gone this long without having a “penis” tag, what is wrong with me)

Overall, Persona has aged pretty well for an old PSX game (although I understand the PSP remake’s localization is about 1000000000000 times better than the original’s, so that might be a factor). Still, there’s one thing that amuses me.

“Nuclear” is a spell type in this game. As in, some Personas will give you spells that basically let you bring down hot nuclear death on enemies.

Some enemies are immune to this, or even reflect it back at you, or even ABSORB IT AND HEAL.

Now that’s amusing enough… but some of these same enemies, some of these enemies that apparently consider enriched uranium a food group… some of these enemies are weak vs. physical attacks.

Drop a nuke on its head and it doesn’t even notice… but punch it in the nose and it falls over and cries.

And then there’s the whole thing with guns and range and how I can only assume that Maki’s firearm is a $10 Airsoft pistol from a shady flea market booth, because that fucker has no range whatsoever.

HEY GUYS, I GOT A SWEET NEW GAME TODAY

IT’S CALLED PERSONA, HAVE YOU HEARD OF IT

…yes, as of today I am finally no longer the only person on earth who has never played a single Megaten game. I picked up the PSP remake today. It comes with a soundtrack. Nice. I haven’t gotten very far yet–just found the key at the police station (hay guys, I said, do you think perhaps the key is in this big box on the wall clearly marked “KEYS,” while my companions are staring at random spots on the floor but anyway).

I decided to do my laundry at Mom’s today, which is farther away from me than the laundromat, solely so I could plug the PSP in to play this game.  And then it wanted to update my PSP’s firmware. And wouldn’t until the fucking battery charged to 60% or so. Which took pretty much the whole time I was at Mom’s, because it was dead dead dead.

One thing the Rabbids Channel has that the Check Mii Out Channel needs?

The ability to show your shit off on the Web.

The current Expo theme is “Geeks” and there was some internal debate about whether to submit the Colbert Rabbid or this.

[ETA: I had to five-star this one after I saw what was on its back.]

I did my first 10K race yesterday–in costume–and did not die. Sadly, I lost the movie division of the costume contest to a pair of Oompa Loompas.

Because I did not die, I thought a reward of some sort was in order. So I finally got Rabbids Go Home. This is a stupid, stupid game, but it’s stupid in the good way. For about the entire first half-hour or so I played, I did not stop laughing at the Rabbids and their perpetual “HURRR” faces and the fact that they attack people by yelling “BWAAAAH” at them and knocking their clothes off and at the occasional FMV break when you pick up a thing and the Rabbids play with it for a bit before the game resumes. The basset hound is my favorite of these.

I’m having way too much fun painting clothes on Rabbids, putting silly things on their heads, rearranging their faces by slapping them around with a big foam glove, and slamming them around inside the Wiimote. Also there’s the Rabbids Channel, which is sort of like the Check Mii Out Channel except with Rabbids.

Saw this on the Nintendo Channel this morning. Needless to say, I came.

What’s that? Another survival horror game for the Wii that’s not a Resident Evil remake or spinoff? And which looks sort of like some terrible beautiful unholy child of Ju-On and Fatal Frame, going by the trailers I’ve seen? Oh God yes please.

Dear immune system:

I am grateful for your nearly flawless service over the past few years.

And while I understand that everyone needs a break now and then, I must ask that next time, you not take yours right in the middle of my Christmas break. Seriously, what the fuck is this shit, I get sick maybe once a year and this time it has to be when I’m on vacation.

Fuck You (but keep up the good work when you get back to it),
Me

Also, my never-used but old-enough-that-I’ve-gotten-rid-of-the-box-and-receipt hot pot has a crack in the bottom of it.

At least I have games to keep me occupied. Thanks to some of my cousins, I am hooked on Guitar Hero and finally broke down and got a Wiitar and World Tour over the weekend.

As a combination reward for finishing Gateway to 8K and Christmas present to myself, I went and got Silent Hill: Shattered Memories today.

fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuck

I had to put it down for the evening after only about two hours, not because I don’t like it, but because I had to put it the fuck down because I did not think I could deal with another bit like the part I had just finished tonight.

(spoiler level: just got to the high school)

Yeah, I got it–after a length of time I’m ashamed to specify–and then ran straight back to the ship and saved because holy shit do I ever want to never do that again.

woooooooooo

Also I finally got the damn silver shovel a couple weeks ago after what, six months?

To add insult to injury, the boy alt I rolled last week got it the first fucking time I sent him to the city.

…yeah, I made a Ghostbusters uniform. It looks better on the boy, but I’m still rather proud of it.

The only thing wrong with the Ghostbusters game is that it’s way, way too damn short. I caved in yesterday, traded in Alone in the Dark and My Fitness Coach, and spent much of yesterday and today wallowing in glee. Catching ghosts is especially satisfying in the Wii version, in no small part because you get to slam them up against walls with the Wiimote a few times.

Also you are encouraged to do as much property damage as possible. I didn’t notice whether or not using the unlicensed nuclear device on my back to draw charred smiley faces on the walls added to my property damage total, but it sure is fun.

Far be it for me to spoil, but at one point in the game you acquire the slime blower. And you get to spray slime all over someone you will want to spray slime all over from the moment he shows up in the game.

Oh hey, I found this thing, it’s old and shitty and to this day part with the dancing Canadian Wels is one of my favorite things I’ve done ever.
