So the 3DS release of Majora's Mask is also having a limited edition set that includes a Skull Kid figure for $49.99. Considering Zelda items tend to fetch a hefty price shortly after their stock runs out, I wonder how much this will go for. $100? $200?

Kersploosh: I bought this game today, beat it in an hour... I was expecting the game to be a little longer, but I guess the devs expect replay value with the different types of "balls" and speed running it. I'm thinking I should've got Velocibox, instead.

Aero Porter: I didn't think a game about managing baggage would be so hard and tense. I actually felt really, really terrible when I failed to get rid of a bomb in time, slipping a gasp when the screen went white.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 31, 2014
@pickhut I avoid those 4 fav offers because it's usually two-sided discs, which I've heard causes a lot of problems. Since this was four actual discs, I figured the casing would accommodate them. Boy was I wrong...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 31, 2014
Unrelated to gaming, but I just opened my Clint Eastwood, 4-disc DVD box, and all 4 DVDs are stacked on top of one another. And here I thought DVD packaging couldn't get worse...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 30, 2014
@joseph_valencia Heard good things about Injustice, wish I could try it out when I have time. Managed to dl in time, and only played a few minutes of MvC, but I can already say the 360's d-pad is more comfortable to use than the Dreamcast's flimsy one.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 30, 2014
Gah, just found out Marvel vs Capcom Origins is being delisted on the 31st for the Xbox 360. I'm currently have connection problems and have to work in a few, so the salt is going to be strong if I can't dl this before the deadline. xP

Aero Porter: I just started this game to check it for a second, and the first thing I read is "Welcome to AERO PORTER. Airports are a symbol of the romance of travel, used by travelers worldwide." I sense good times ahead.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 29, 2014
After much debate, I told myself not to review Tokyo Crash Mobs. But a week and a half later, I wanted to squeeze out a final review for the year... so I should have a TCM review finished within a day. x_X
Wendell B @pickhutDec 24, 2014
Today I wanted to watch clips from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly on YouTube... and the first seven results were for World of Tanks videos. The eighth result was Destiny. I didn't start seeing clips until the end of the second page. This depresses me...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 22, 2014
Door Kickers: So this is the second time in two months where I've heard The Blue Danube Waltz in a video game...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 21, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer It's a Boxing Day miracle!
Wendell B @pickhutDec 20, 2014
@pickhut more puzzle-esque in nature. Depending on where you're looking, your swat team has a very limited view of their surroundings. I'm currently stalled on a beach house map where I have to take out 10+ armed men with 4 swat guys and a limited sniper.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 20, 2014
Door Kickers: got this yesterday when I found out it was 50% off. I wanted to try it back in October, but I couldn't swallow its $19 tag. I've only played a few stages, but it's so far been an interesting strategy game that actually feels (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutDec 20, 2014
@joseph_valencia Definitely a unique title, though not as much as people tend to make it out to be.

@pickhut Tried TCM for 20 minutes, and I could barely stand playing it. Then the game broke and relaunched my 3DS again. I'm actually fearing for the safety of my handheld...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 17, 2014
I'm actually thinking about writing about Tokyo Crash Mobs after reading up on some tidbits that would make for an interesting review (I hope), but this would require playing more of Tokyo Crash Mobs. Gah.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 13, 2014
I read that After Burner Climax is going to be delisted for the 360/PS3 on Dec. 24th, so there's ten-ish days to download it if any of you were thinking about it!
Wendell B @pickhutDec 12, 2014
@pickhut And now the game forced my 3DS to restart due to an unknown error, the first time that's ever happened. Man, this game sucks.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 12, 2014
Tokyo Crash Mobs: this... this game is legitimately making me upset. It's basically Ballistic with a weird, FMV-esque slant. I thought it would be weird in a funny way, but certain mechanics and jokes are just outright angering me due to their stupidity.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 09, 2014
@zippdementia Yup. Just found it funny how well the final unscripted seconds of the battle made the following cutscene all the more dramatic. Very enjoyable game.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 09, 2014
XCOM EU: Mannn, only one soldier survived the final mission, and I didn't even really like him. He didn't even do anything in the last section! My SHIV robot made the final, heroic shot when everything was going bad... and they left It behind! War sucks.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 06, 2014
@pickhut @zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer @EmP I THINK, though. The PC version is apparently standalone expansion, while the console versions supposedly has it attached to the original game. I have no clue about the iPad version.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 06, 2014
@zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer @EmP 1.96 GB, according to its itunes page. Get Enemy Within, though, if you're purchasing, since it's the same game with added content. I... completely forgot about this pretty much right after I bought Enemy Unknown. >_<
Wendell B @pickhutDec 06, 2014
@pickhut @EmP *alien. Stupid phone!
Wendell B @pickhutDec 06, 2014
@EmP Yeah, part of the fun I'm having with EU is seeing how far I can keep people alive. My current record is a guy surviving 30-some missions with around 50 alieb kills.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 05, 2014
XCOM EU: Easily lost my final experienced soldier to a 15-hit critical attack. Predictions: it's all uphill from here.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 05, 2014
@pickhut @overdrive I now currently just have one senior member in charge of a bunch of inexperienced soldiers. This should be interesting...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 05, 2014
@overdrive Yeah, I reloaded once early in the game when a similar thing happened when trying to rescue civilians for the first time. Since then, I just tried pressing forward regardless. As for now, I've decided to keep my post-massacred lineup. (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutDec 05, 2014
XCOM EU: Well, after a dozen or so successful missions where no one on my team died, and literally right after I get my first psi soldiers, my entire squad is wiped out in the following mission. Must... resist urge... to reload game.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 03, 2014
@overdrive I swear the enemies are purposely going after my best skilled, best-equipped soldiers, because they die without fail 1 or 2 missions later. Amazingly, I still have this one guy who's survived 30+ missions and killed over 60 aliens. I jinxed it.
Wendell B @pickhutDec 01, 2014
@Suskie Oh. Oh, wow...
Wendell B @pickhutDec 01, 2014
XCOM EU: Man, I keep losing my best soldiers in the worst way possible. I recently lost an awesome sniper because I was trying to take cover after being poisoned. I took cover behind a car... that blew up after the turn was over. >_<
Wendell B @pickhutDec 01, 2014
@Suskie What game is that?
Wendell B @pickhutNov 30, 2014
Played XCOM Enemy Unknown for the first time last night for about six hours. Out of that entire play, the biggest "wtf" moment I had was finding out there are day stages four hours in. Embarrassingly, I found the satellite purchase option at the 6th hour.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 28, 2014
Too many things happening next month for me, so I can probably pump out one more review before year's end, then take a "break". Wonder what that game could be...
Wendell B @pickhutNov 24, 2014
I need to stop unintentionally try writing reviews around the weekends when my work schedule bounces around and sleep is nonexistent... Probably the main reason I stopped my Oniken review and close to stopping for another game.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 18, 2014
Maybe it's just me... but I don't understand the appeal of rebuying a game, at full price, that just came out a year prior and sold a billion dollars in its first few days, just because it now has slightly improved graphics and a first person mode.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 17, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Funny you should say that, because I added games to my wishlist for the first time last night! I got tired of trying to remembering games with unusual titles. xP
Wendell B @pickhutNov 14, 2014
Turbo Dismount: Cute, point-based crash game, but only a select few of the dev-made courses are worth replaying over and over again. You pretty much have to rely on fan-made maps.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 12, 2014
@joseph_valencia I only watch other people play it on YouTube. I think I would be more irritated than scared to play the game with its jump scares.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 12, 2014
I've played Oniken, and for some reason I can't complete a review for it. I know what I want to write, but for 7 days, all I can show for it are 2 paragraphs. For now, I'm just gonna play something else. It's a nice, Ninja Gaiden-style (NES) game, though.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 11, 2014
I love how Freddy 2 hasn't been out for more than a day, and it seems like people already expect everyone else to know how the AI functions, the names of the animatronics, and the "lore". I'm having Portal 1 flashbacks.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 05, 2014
@zippdementia I bet that guy can write an entire novel series based on his adventures in the game.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@honestgamer Ha, they actually got ThunderBlade! I remember reading the interviews for the original 3D classics, and one of the guys kept saying he wanted to do ThunderBlade in nearly all of them.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@joseph_valencia I can't believe the translator tried to do the voice, too...
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Kirby games, Mystical Ninja, R-Type games, Super/Adventure Island games, Final Fight games, Vectorman, Shining Force games, Road Rash games, Lemmings, Lost Vikings. I'm just throwing out names I can think of. Quality will vary. xD
Wendell B @pickhutNov 02, 2014
Downloaded Valet Parking 1989 from the DSiWare library thinking I could get some mileage for a review. Turns out to be a very simple, overhead "don't touch the sides" management game. Even with the 80s theme, I doubt I could write a decent-sized review...
