When was the last time Konami-internal made a good game?
Don't really have much of an opener other than to state that, if you've never played P.T. on PSN, you have until April 29th to do so. Apparently, Konami's removing the game after announcing the cancellation of Silent Hills. I'm sure EmP is incredibly depressed that he's never going to play as Norman Reedus.Joking aside, these recent events surrounding Konami, what with their falling out with Kojima Productions and the Silent Hills' cancellation, has got me thinking: when was the last time Konami themselves made a good game? I'm thinking of all the recent titles they've published over the last, maybe, ten years, and they've all been outsourced games. I mean, even Sega, with their recent troubles, still crank out games using in-house teams. I'm honestly at a loss.-Current Games-

Around the holiday season, the Nintendo Store was selling refurbished Wii U Deluxe consoles for $200, and I mentioned this in HG chat around then, but that went away after a few months. Probably sold all the ones they had in stock. Well, guess what? As of this writing, they're doing it again, and this time they're also selling Deluxe consoles with Super Mario 3D World for $225! So, if you've been thinking about getting a Wii U, and don't mind it being refurbished, here's your opportunity. However, it's only for US and Canada residents, and keep in mind the shipping costs, as well. Also, shipping will take a few weeks, because I bought a refurbished 2DS for my nephew back at the end of August, and I think it didn't even arrive until midway or the end of September. read the full post...]

So I've been writing a review for a game... for two and a half weeks now. And it's been driving me nuts that I haven't finished it yet. My goal is to complete it sometime this week, all I need to do is just sit down and commit to the rest of the review.
It's been a dreadfully slow few weeks of gaming for me. Like, the last game I played was a week ago, which happened to be...
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Games, movies, and more Contra 4 complaining!
Leftover Contra 4 Complaints
I had more gripes with Contra 4, but I didn't want the review to drag on since it was already long enough.
Because the only game I'm playing right now is one I'm trying to write a review for.
Obligatory spoiler-esque warnings.
The Last Stand
Decided to check this one out after hearing on one of the Super Best Friendcasts that it wasn't that bad of a movie. Not gonna lie, within the first few minutes, it was weird seeing an older Arnold on screen, but I got over it pretty quick. I was also surprised by the direction of the movie, often times focusing on another area of the plot, and about Arnold's lack of screen presence because of it. The focus on the car chase was weird, considering it felt like those scenes were just padding the movie. The gunfight in town was the highlight of the movie, even if it was a bit lacking in places.
So I have one "horror"-themed game left to review that I'll be submitting the last day of October, but I keep running into problems. The game I originally intended to do was Majora's Mask, since, you know, the theme of the moon crashing and the various masks worn. But I didn't want to rush through the game for the sake of a review, so I went for something else.
