Metroid Prime

With Red Steel finished, it was time to get another shooter/adventure game. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption got high marks, so that was what I went to get this afternoon.

Holy shit, does that game look good! Red Steel and Tiger Woods look like drab crap compared to that. Environments are really lush and interactive, the enemies are bizarre and well-animated... And the action doesn't end, with an interesting story intertwined. (I never played any of the preceding Metroid Prime's, so it is all new to me. Which means that I don't know what some things are supposed to mean or be -- but I can shoot at stuff that shoots at me none the less. ;) )

As an aside: if you thought toystores are bad just before Sinterklaas or Christmas, try going in one the day after christmas! It was packed with people who were either buying accessories for some of the things they got as gifts, or exchaning their gifts for something else. It was chaos -- the rank smell of fear, impatience and desperation wafted through the store. Luckily I managed to get out of there relatively quickly.
