It's time to be real here. After writing off pretty much the last two hours of my work day yesterday, I'm pretty close to finishing that stupid goddamn game about Candies. Yesterday I left my Candy tab running overnight. I have so many candies. I have literally millions of lollipops. Now is the time. When I get home tonight, I will finish this bloody game!
It's strange — the only games that have sucked me in this year have been an insane desktop game and a handheld spin-off sequel I thought would be complete garbage.
Yep — the other game I'm continuing to plod through is Luigi's Mansion 2. I can't remember ever feeling so surprised by a game. It's been years. I could go on and on about the merits of Luigi's Mansion 2, but I'll keep it short and say that it's simply a game that indulges in details — sexy, sexy details. It's a game fully in-tune with its mechanics and it's just brilliant designed top to tail. I love it to death.
So that's what I'll be playing this weekend — how about you?
