Merry Christmas!

It's that time of year again.  The time when you allow an obese man enter your home through the chimney, whom you've never actually met who wears exclusively red and abuses reindeer to do his bidding.  He enters your house, eats your food, wanders around a little bit while leaving...well I guess gifts and pleasant things around. Then he leaves to go back to the frozen North Pole where he laughs his face off while his slave labourers create tools of...well happiness and fun, I suppose.  Fine, Santa's not all that bad!

The point is that's it's Christmas, and so I bid you all a happy holiday and a very merry Christmas!  If you've gotten some video games under your tree or in your stocking, FIRE THEM UP!

In Defense - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Success is something that the Zelda brand always tends to achieve...each game strives for excellence and top-notch presentation, and for the most part they've reached their goal (except for those atrocities on the CD-i, but that's all we'll say about that). For years, The Legend of Zelda has been Nintendo's ace in the hole, which is hardly surprising given that just about every main entry in the series earns an average rating of 90% or higher. When people get a new Zelda game, it's a day to remember. Zelday, as I personally like to call it...and although I personally look forward to the next Metroiday much more than the next Zelday, I'm in the minority. That's not to say I don't like Zelda games...quite the opposite in fact, even if I have some different views from others with respect to my favourites in the series.
