So, of all of the dwarves I could have woken up this morning, I decided to wake up Sneezy. This is normally something unrelated to gaming, if not unremarkable entirely, except for the fact that I was playing a 3DS and the cone of area in front of one’s sneeze occupied by a handheld is much larger than when one is playing, say, a PS3.
One detail job later, I am back to exploring the whole “surely you jest” pile of games from the Gamestop. They have sub-fiver games in little envelopes up by the register and while many of them make perfect sense to be there (there was, apparently, a hamster boom a couple of years ago that bled into video gaming) but there are a handful of games that make you ask “why in the world is *THIS* game in there?”
Before finding that the answer was “you paid two-ninety-nine for this and you *STILL* got ripped off.” In any case, Zenses: Rainforest is *NOT* a zen meditation assistant but peg solitaire. I suppose one could argue that peg solitaire is a zen meditation assistant but one would be stretching.
There was a “logic machines” game for four bucks that is a “create your own Rube Goldberg machine” game that, as these things go, could get you through a plane ride.
Oh, and I found a $20 game (woop woop!) in there for 8 bucks. “I was wondering when someone would find that”, the guy behind the counter said. Professor Layton, here I come!
So… what are you playing?
