Hmm Strider? That's pretty cool. Wish it was released a while ago but what are you gonna do.

Still upset MMX2 isn't out yet. :( Come on Nintendo, just do it!

I downloaded the MGS demo. It's fun, but the controls are kind of hard to get used to. Also, I am still amazed at how camera controls and such aren't inverted by default in games nowadays. It's just so weird! I have the game preordered, and think that in order to really enjoy it, I will need the slider pad doohickey. Unfortunately.

As for Strider... very cool! I have been waiting for this to release, and will strongly be considering its download. I am hopeful for other games similar in nature, such as Hagane and Run Saber - as I have yet to sadly play these two.

Strider is one of my very favorite games. That said... why not the ARCADE version, Capcom? It might have even cost less!

I also want more GB stuff. I was enjoying it so much! I wonder how soon they'll start rollin' out the GBA games...

On another note, holy shit, this 32gb SD card that I just got has a lot of blocks!

For some reason I assumed Strider was a shmup when I first saw it. Then I Google Imaged and found I was way off. This is not the first time that has happened to me.

So what does this game compare to?

Strider is a kickass action game with crazy mobility options (he's basically a slowed down Spider-Man), fantastic presentation, and a totally nonsensical story. Capcom at their arcade best.

I'm happy with Hulu Plus and Netflix on the platform, because hopefully it means a content war...
