So, my wife loves me: she bought me Final Fantasy Chronicles for Valentine’s Day. Since I’m still (intermittantly) replaying FF7, I thought I’d steer clear of FF4 for now and work on the other game in the package: Chrono Trigger.

most mediocre game ever

I rented ZooCube from Blockbuster, and got a few hours of play out of it. I guess it was at least at least my five bucks worth, but that was the problem. I didn’t feel like turning it in late or renting it again. In a game with such a simple concept, the gameplay needs to be addictive, like Pac Man or Tetris. ZooCube has everything except that X factor that makes me want to stay at work and play Snood rather than go home.

I read a lot of good things about Soul Calibur, but I’m not a big fan of 3-D fighters, so I didn’t rush to pick it up. When I found out that Soul Calibur is the sequel to Soul Blade, though, I was tempted: I used to play Soul Blade at a friend’s place. I wasn’t very good, but I really liked Voldo. I think he was designed to appeal to people who weren’t interested in seeing Sophitia’s panties, and I’m OK with that.
