Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary

Dear Diary,

After all the drama last week, I was grateful to have a little quiet in Geneva this time around. Although I’m constantly reminded that Halloween is coming up and I’m not prepared for it at all. I never decorated my house, and I haven’t bought any of the masks yet to participate in the holiday. Although I’m not sure I really want to bother. Maybe I should check and see if there’s any spooky furniture that I still need that I didn’t get last year. See if I should try again this year.

NYCC ’14: Hands On: Resident Evil Revelations 2

I have to admit that around Resident Evil 4, Capcom basically lost me. The series had become too combat-heavy and I prefer my survival horror games to actually have some horror in them. So it was with great delight that I devoured Resident Evil Revelations on my Nintendo 3DS in 2012.

And after my hands-on time with the game at New York Comic Con, I’m really looking forward to it. (Even if it’s console only now and not portable… I just have way more time to play portables with my long commute!)

However, I have tried to play Monster Hunter before and it was a complete disaster. So I opted not to cut into the long line of eager fans waiting to try the game for themselves and simply observe and gather information for you.

I’ll run down the highlights after the jump… and there’s even a special treat in it for you at the end!

Review: Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved

What happens when you mix the magic of Disney with the magic of Harmonix? You get Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, one of the most unique and hard-to-describe games I think I’ve ever seen. It’s a music rhythm game, which is Harmonix’s strength, but instead of playing along with the music or dancing to it, you’re conducting it and remixing it to your whim. It’s a hard sell, but is it worth picking up? Let me try to explain…

Wootini’s Weekly Video Podcast #194

Well, I was able to put Fantasy Life aside for just long enough to finally finish the epilogue of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright… and then immediately dove back into my new fantasy life. So I’ve got some final thoughts on the bizarre mash up of puzzle solving and ace attorney-ing before sharing some more impressions on the new 3DS RPG that’s apparently taking over my life! Watch this week’s episode after the jump!
