I'll give that Monster Hunter Generations demo a spin. See how different it is from the others. And I'll likely check out BOXBOXBOY once I finish up the first game. Keep getting distracted with several titles right now. [/first_world_problems]

Might even upgrade my VC copy of Super Mario RPG so it's "native" to the Wii U (no extra-step Wii mode activation). So...yeah. Got some pretty cool stuff this week!

I hope Boxboy has a ton of sequels, and they just keep making the name longer and longer and longer...
