GERARDAMO is writing a review?

Well... No.

I was all set to do a review of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger this week, but in a 20cc-esque turn of events, not only was that not available from my GameQ on GameFly, the first 11 games on my list weren't available. So was next? Animal Crossing: City Folk. No, I don't remember how it got there, but it was anyway. Well, GERARDAMO, why can't you just return it and get another game? I was all set to do that, but I give any game I get the benefit of the doubt and play it anyway. It has now been 5 days and I'm still playing it. How very disappointing. In fact, I would probably do a review of it if it wasn't from last year, but alas, it is. For sake of getting a review up, I'll write a quick 2 sentences.

GERARDAMO Reviews - Animal Crossing: City Folk (Nintendo Wii)

Animal Crossing: City Folk is the Wii's version of Animal Crossing for the Gamecube. Does that sound like weird wording, let me explain it better. Animal Crossing: City Folk is the exact Animal Crossing that you played on the Gamecube, and also the same exact game that you played on the DS. The furniture is the same, the neighbors are the same, everything is the same.

Originality: 0/50
Innovation: 0/50

Overall, Animal Crossing: City Folk scores a 0/100

Okay, joke review aside, this is indeed the same game that I saved my allowance for months for way back when I was in middle school. I'm not entirely sure why I haven't returned it yet. But if I ever do, I should have a review up for BlazBlue sometime soon. For now, I have to get back to mailing my neighbors the garbage that I found fishing.

Sometimes, Actual Walking Can Be A Bit Overwhelming

Have you ever had the thought, "It's a beautiful day outside! I'd love to go out walking, but that's just too gosh darn difficult!" I know I have! Lucky for you, Konami is here to save you from the trouble that is going outside and walking with their latest project, Walk It Out!

Okay, seriously, time to end the Splenda-sweet sarcasm. Walk It Out is Konami's latest adventure into "exergaming." Using a Wii Balance board, you can get all the excitement of real walking without leaving the house! You can also use the Hottest Party/Mario Mix (I mean... Mario Mix? What's that. It never happened. Continue reading.) dance pad, and if even THAT seems too daunting, you can go ahead and use your Wii-mote and nunchuk. Now, it seems to be at least PART rhythm game. You have to walk in time to what is promised to be over 100 songs. So, maybe if DDR seems too difficult as well, this two direction version might be more appealing? Still not interested? Yeah, good luck with this. Maybe Liz, the personal trainer will get you more motivated to walk in place.

If nothing else, that trailer is pretty hilarious. As far as I know, there is no release date set yet. I hope we can all manage to hold back our excitement to walk in place until this comes out.

So This One Time It Was Summer...

Yeah so it's been a month or so since anyone posted anything. But don't worry, we haven't forgotten about you. In fact, we've been working hard to revolutionize the world of aB (all five of you people out there who pretend to care). We've got some new ideas that might freshen things up a little bit, and GERARDAMO put us a website together.

That's right, we're actually moving. Remember when we first mentioned the possibility back in March or whatever? Well it should actually be up and running soon, which means I can unleash the power of my ocd on the limited-but-slightly-less-so-than-a-blog posibilities of a low budget website.

Also we have a Twitter, which none of us will ever use (except maybe GERARDAMO), but it'll keep all you posers from pretending to be us and saying things like "Today I saved three newborn infants from falling out of a tree into a hole that led into the firey pits of Hell." Who wants that kind of shit on their Twitter? Seriously.
