F-Zero GX – You Lose

Gamers seem to often have a slight masochistic bend to them. What with the popularity of games like Dark Souls and the like, which sell themselves on the fact that you will die, and you will die a lot. While F-Zero GX didn’t really sell itself on that, it is quite possibly the Dark Souls of racing games.

Shank – A Bloody Good Time

This is a game I got from a friend on Steam. I believe he gifted to me for Christmas or my birthday or something and I am such a terrible person I never repaid him for it (also – I had no money but I’m really sorry Ultramario I didn’t mean it). I am, however, eternally grateful to said friend because Shank is an awesome game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D – Got a Good Rhythm Going

I didn’t mean to take a whole month and a week off. Honest. It just happened. Anyway…

I’m not really much of a JRPG guy. I tend to find the style of gameplay fairly boring unless it’s got an active hook, like the Mario series of RPGs’ Action Commands. I used to be quite into them, but for some reason, they’ve just fallen out of vogue with me. Even ones I would previously spend dozens of hours on, the Pok√©mon games, have fallen flat. So it’s fairly surprising that not only do I like it, but I wholeheartedly loved most of my over-one-hundred-hours in Xenoblade Chronicles.
