o/~ A Video Game and a CD o/~
There's this Wii Game I've heard all sorts of great things about: de Blob. The premise is pretty simple... you are in a colorless world, you are a blob that can pounce on wandering robots containing paint, suck in the color and color the world around you.
There's a little strategy involved, especially in later levels, but it's mostly a 3D platformer. You jump, smash and slime your way around a three dimensional world, meeting challenges, coloring things and finding things to smash.
One of the neat things about the game is that depending on the 'mood' you say Blob is in at the start of the game, the sounds the buildings make as you color them different colors change them. I played my first game with Blob feeling 'Smooth' and it was orchestration (coloring buildings yellow, for example, made a flute play.). The second game, Blob was feeling 'Funky' and it was much jazier. Pretty neat.
There's things you unlock as you play as well. Free Mode. Multiplayer games and mini-missions. I'm liking the game so far.
As she was looking for gifts, she happened upon a CD called "Let it Snow Baby, Let it Reindeer" by Relient K which had a number of covers of Christmas Favorites and some originals. K took a look at some of the names and said "Howard would probably like that." It's decent. :)
And last night, from K's parents, I got "The Producers DVD" (K's parents actually gave me *8* gifts, one for each night of Hannukah. So I open them one per night, as, I think, was the intention. :) )
The PROBLEM now.. the PROBLEM is... we "HAVE" to play Animal Crossing to keep the town we've invested so much effort into going (keep our flowers watered, look for fossils) but I have at least one new Wii game I wanna play. :)
This could be a Problem. We'll have to sort it out. :) Luckily, we're all adults (sorta ;) ) in the house. Also, luckily I have two 4 day weekends ahead of me. :D
