Dear Diary,

Well, after all the excitement of Halloween last time, you’d think that this week would be a nice calm seven days in Geneva. Well, you would be slightly misinformed. There’s a whole lot of action after the jump. Make it and see!

Once again, Nintendo has released a new Wii Fit game, and once again, it’s another incremental update to the previous one. But are the new features enough to make Wii Fit U worth picking up? Well, considering that Nintendo decided to make the game a free download on the eShop until the end of January, you could just see for yourself. But if you’re on the fence about whether it’s worth sacrificing that precious Wii U hard drive space, make the jump for my thoughts!

So let’s say one crazy day you decide that you’re a bit tired of slaying dragons. Swiss Army Vorpal Swords +Whatever make you yawn. Wizards throwing fireballs? Laaaame. You have some friends over and you’ve been watching a marathon of Lethal Weapon (like we are all prone to do at some point, I’m sure). Suddenly you have the idea: what about a tabletop RPG where you play as loose cannon cops who are too old for this shit and are just three days away from retirement?!

Well, sorry to say, but you’ve been beat to the punch.

I know lots of you are deep into catching Pokémon and earning Gym Badges right now, but Atlus is trying to grab your attention back to dungeon crawling by putting all the DLC for the 3DS RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV on sale for 25% off! You can get the full game for $39.99, and then various DLC that adds new dungeons, new demons to recruit and new equipment for anywhere from $1.11 to $2.24 from the Nintendo eShop. Just keep in mind that this sale is only going to run until November 11, so maybe pick up the DLC now and then play it after you’ve become a Pokémon Master?

Also, you can download the controversy magnet Dragon’s Crown for PS3 for $39.99, and for the Vita for $29.99. And the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC is on sale for just $1.49. (The Dragon’s Crown theme for the PS3 is also $1.49) And those sale prices will be in effect until November 12.

When comes to groups that the most vile of gamers dislike, gay men are miles above common fodder like women and “the blacks.” The industry has spent so long catering strictly to the angry white kid demographic that its visual mythology and cultural perspective is stubbornly entrenched in that singular perspective. Enter My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant: its release a supposed threat to Xbox Live trolls and Anita Sarkessian-haters the world over. But beyond its usefulness as a conversation starter, or appeal as troll trap, it’s difficult to recommend Up Multimedia’s effort as effective industry parody, or even a worthwhile gaming experience.

This week it’s all about the new Wii Fit U, which is a free download from the eShop. It’s like a month-long free trial period at the gym. And if you like it, it’s way cheaper than a gym membership! Unless you know of a gym that only charges $20 for a lifetime membership!

Also, I have to bitch about the crippling of the Swapnote app on the 3DS. Stupid kids…
