I got my hands on Puzzle Quest yesterday. They had four copies at Future Shop and due to their method of stacking different games behind others (like at music stores), I missed them all when I checked last weekend. Overall, I’m a bit dissapointed. After playing the PC version, that has a whole lot more screen real estate compared to the DS, It feels as if everything is stuffed and hidden. But it’s still Puzzle Quest gameplay-wise so it’s ok.

It’s here. it’s (finally) done. Enjoy.
Yeah, it’s done. But it’s too big. I’m passing it through iMovie to format it for YouTube.
I’m looking around for a good pick-up-and-play DS game. I convinced myself that I shouldn’t buy Sim City Societies right now. It was a painful decision since I am a huge fan of the series and I really wanted to know what it was about. But, I’ve concluded that It’s not a perfect game and there are chances I won’t get hooked on it enough to make it worth $50. So now I’m looking for a game I can enjoy during those times when I don’t have much else to do. That game seems to be Puzzle Quest. I tried the PC demo yesterday and I like the game play. Think of it as an RPG with 2-player Vs. Bejewled as battle gameplay. I got hooked on it. I’m not yet sure if I’ll like it like I like Elite Beat Agents (which I started playing again a bit) but since it’s been out for a while, I hope to be able to get a nice discount compared to it’s launch price.And now, the review. I’ve worked on it a bit tonight. Started doing the voice recording and I’m already well into it. I don’t expect any major delays this weekend (although, I haven’t bought Puzzle Quest yet) so if all goes well, it should be done by Sunday.
Busy, busy week here in “Real Life.” Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to either play or work on my review for Super Mario Galaxy much this week. Oh, and I’d still like it if someone were to kill (figuratively) the moron that inverted command-z and w in Final Cut Pro. I probably lost 15 to 20 minutes because I forgot how to restore my timeline after I accidentally closed it because I tried to repair a mistake with Undo.
The script is done. And the recording is nearly finished… But it wasn’t fun to do. Apparently there is only a select few compression formats that will both record at a good frame-rate and let me play with little lag. H.264 gave a little lag but recorded at what seemed as 1 frame per second. I realized I forgot to change the format from H.264, oh, about towards when I was done recording. I finally found a decent format. The quality is OK and I’ll have to render the video every time I want to see it in Final Cut Express but at least it’ll make for a decent screen capture.
I’ve beaten Galaxy! Granted, I haven’t played every galaxy and I’m far from finding every star. I’ll finish playing the few galaxies I haven’t visited and start working on the script and the screen captures for my review.
It might just be Japan, but it’s still shocking. In the month of October, OS X, and I can’t believe I’m going to write this, had a larger marketshare OS-wise than Windows in Japan. That is simply amazing.
Oh, I got a call from my EB Games : Super Mario Galaxy’s in and I’m leaving soon to get it!
I downloaded yesterday two Rob Dougan songs with the Wi-Fi Music Store on my iPod touch. Only one, Furious Angels, made it through to my computer. The other one, Will You Follow Me?, not only did not sync, it’s not even on my iPod touch anymore! Obviously, I sent a message to Apple about this. I hope they answer quickly.
The long awaited Check Mii Out Channel (Wasn’t the first launch day suppose to be in April or May?) is coming Remembrance Day, November 11th. I can’t wait to post some of my Miis including a few from LOST, including Ben, and my John Stewart Mii. … What? I got bored a couple of times! And chances are, with this channel, I might get bored a bit more often.
