So my copy of Hamtaro showed up yesterday and I only got to spend a few minutes with it and I officially suck as a hamster olympian. I have a fear that this game will be as addicting as many people find Super Monkey Ball.

For those of you that would like to envy me, I am expecting a copy of the Metroid Prime 2: Echos bonus disc to show up tomorrow so I will get you my thoughts on that probably Friday. I was on my way to work this morning wondering why I never spent any time with the original and I think I figured it out. I have been in a ton of ‘discussions’ where people try and compare MP to Halo. To me this is like comparing a Fiero to a Ferrari where the only similarity they may share is that they are both video games. Sure they are both first person, but I don’t think it is fair to compare then. No, I don’t think either one is on the ‘Fiero’ level, but it made my stupid analogy work.

Now that I have a few of the major coding things out of the way I can get back to a few of the reviews I have been meaning to do. Don’t forget to send in your submission to the Say What?! Caption contest. It should prove to be awesome.
