I don’t have any idea what it was, but something was mucking up my page, making it hard to see. In any case, it’s fixed now. Maybe. Onto greater things, then!

I’d like to open with this statement: I really like Metroid Prime 3. It’s awesome the controls are effin’ sweet, and it’s very fun. Now more to the point, I think it may be a bit overrated. Everyone’s just shitting themselves slathering the damn thing with far more praise than I think it really deserves. I mean, yeah, it’s a well-crafted game, but it’s no better than the first two once you take away the motion controls. I dunno. I’m always the first one to kiss Nintendo’s ass, but really, I just don’t see it as being quite as deserving of so much praise as some other games. The thing is, we knew the motion controls would rock ass for FPS games, it’s just that Retro is the first developer to get them right. So, um, I don’t really know where I was going with this, but I think the point is that if you take away the Wiimote and nunchuk, people wouldn’t be anywhere near as excited about this game as they are. And I guess if nothing else, that proves how much that little pointer can do for games.

I guess that’s actually all I had to say for today. I’m sure there was something else, but nothing’s coming to me, so I’m off. Laterz.
