Christmas Break...START!

My college exams will soon be over, and Christmas break will begin. I am looking forward to a vacation from school, and some time to see my family and friends. The holiday season will also bring some downtime to play the games I have been neglecting like Ys: Oath of Felghana and Fist of the Northstar. I will probably not update the blog for awhile due to my travel plan over the Christmas season; so everyone have a Merry Christmas. I also wish all the gamers a great new year.

Here are some great reasons to look forward to 2011:

Mass Effect 3

Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Metal Gear Solid Rising

Devil May Cry 5

I can't wait to play these games, what about you?

Cave asks "Do you like fat chicks?"

It is a strange question, but Cave's shooter, "Muchi Muchi Pork" involves girls who were turned into pigs. What does this have to do with anything? Cave decided today to make its combo shooting pack," Muchi Muchi Pork and Pink Sweets:Ibara" region free. This means that you can play the Japanese game on your Xbox 360 in America or Europe.
I played both games at Magfest, and enjoyed them. While the theme for Muchi Muchi Pork is slightly annoying, the game play is typical Cave bullet hell madness. Pink Sweets is super hard, and it is more like an old Raizing shooter than something like Mushihime Futari. It is up for pre-order at Play-Asia and Amiami. Amiami is cheaper. The first print has a free DLC card inside.
