This edition of Current Quests is brought to you by Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which has slightly taken over my life of late, as it has others I know. Who doesn’t like fulfilling the childhood dream of finding out “who would win in a fight?” Mario Vs. Sonic? “Real” Link Vs. Toon Link? Jigglypuff Vs. An Army of Mutant Cyborgs? Ok, I made that last one up.
The ever intrepid Derek “Roku” Cavin has once again drowned in schoolwork and has only recently been revived in order to partake in the Smashy goodness. That said, he still kicks my ass fairly handily. He calls this “rusty”. I call it “ego bruising”.
Michael “CactuarJoe” Beckett has been down in the dungeons of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates for the last fifteen hours, crawling along on his way to save the princess or the kingdom or the world or the neighbor’s dog or whatever needs saving these days.
Ladies and gentlemen, RandomNPC is proud to present: The legendary band of famousness, Cortney and the Stones! Our resident Alethea has finally gotten around to purchasing Rock Band, and thus it’s now time to rock the hell on. The Smash goddess has also shone her light on Cortney, as Brawl is waiting for its moment to be played. Oh, and since I should probably include something about RPGs, she acquired Wild ARMs XF, so look forward to review-y goodness about that strategic title.
John “Karlinn” Boske, having recently finished the epic masterpiece of Mass Effect, will now be replaying The Witcher. Or Mass Effect. Either way, look for a review of one of ‘em. To complete the Bioware-related trifecta, Karl has also started replaying Baldur’s Gate (the whole series). Again. For the millionth time. Oh, apologies, just got word… billionth time. Meanwhile, reports have come in that random homeless psychopaths are being Condemned(2). How that’s possible without a home in the first place, I don’t know.
Jordan “J_Sensei” Jackson has been suffering from sinusitis of late, an affliction which seems to be going around lately. When not poking random spots on his head to see if they hurt, he’s been Smashing people, especially me, into next Tuesday. Jordan also got bit by the Crystal Chronicles bug.
Ailing from the same condition(or possibly worse) as Jordan, T.J. “Nerdboy Himself” Condon has been conceding to the wonderful mistress that is NyQuil with its big f*ckin’ Q. Never one to leave it to a single remedy, he was last seen snorting crushed-up Alka-Seltzer.
Michael “Slayer of God” Kozinko brought down the house this afternoon. Or the palace. Eh, I forget the Lunar: Eternal Blue reference, but some guy it was named after couldn’t fit in the front door. In more news worthy of “score!”, Slayer has achieved scores of 100 on every stage in World 2 of Yoshi’s Island. Awesome game.
Finally, I recently wrapped up Mass Effect, including the newly released “Bring Down the Sky” mini-mission, and have to say that I loved the experience, even if the sidequesting got somewhat boring near the end. Also, Mako donuts. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go get kicked off screen again.
