So yesterday I picked up my Limited Edition copy of Tales of Xillia. I had it preordered, and me and my girlfriend are going to start it just as soon as we have the time. While I was in Gamestop I saw that they had a buy one get one free deal on select pre-owned games, and to my surprise, there were actually good games in there. So I am now the proud owner of Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One. And I got it all for 24 bucks. Well, the used games. I paid full price for Tales of Xillia. So I am happy for a while longer. Oh, and in gaming news, Luigi is going to be in the next Smash Bros. It isn't all that surprising, but hey, I will take any and all news about that game.
Peter Copali! No, I hadn't heard of him either. He is famous for his role on In the Loop and The Thick of It, where he plays a politician with a bad mouth. I just started watching In the Loop last night, and wow is it funny. He was also in the Doctor Who episode The Fires of Pompei, where he played the father who the Doctor saves from dying in a volcanic eruption. While I think he looks the part and I have high hopes for him, he didn't really impress me in his interview on BBC when they announced he would play the new Doctor. He basically looked like a suck-up the entire time, with his comments about how "Doctor Who is everyone's" and "I'm starting to see the Doctor in the mirror. He isn't me yet, but I can see him forming." Sounds like nonsense to me. But I think he could be great for the show. Now if only we could get rid of Moffat.
Guess what is going to happen Sunday:
Thats right. The person who will be playing the new Doctor on Doctor Who will be announced. They are going to have a big special about it, with Steven Moffat and Matt Smith, and probably whoever the new person is going to be. And the best part? Sunday is my birthday! So I get to meet the new Doctor while celebrating being 20 years old. It's gonna be awesome!
Nintendo released there financial numbers from the last few months and things aren't looking good, especially for the Wii U:
3DS sales are doing good though, which gives me some hope for Nintendo's future. I myself bought a 3DS two months ago, and was very pleased with it. I don't have a Wii U, along with just about everyone else, and I don't plan on getting on until Smash Bros. comes out. That was the reason I bought a Wii, and it might be the reason I buy a Wii U. I hope by then there are even more good Wii U games that I can get, since one game does not make a system. Good luck, Nintendo.
