"Octodad: Dadliest Catch" Review - ...

When I was getting ready to play Octodad: Dadliest Catch, I recalled a cartoon character from years past called Chicken Boo. Chicken Boo was a human-sized chicken who disguised himself as a person in order to fit into varying societal roles. In every...

We have fallen behind on the bi-monthly picks!

I have been super busy, had a couple deaths in the family so I've been running around trying to help out family as much as I can.

Switching to a much more happy topic, I finally have a PS4! Had to pick one up since Uncharted 4 is out. Loving it so far. I have about 2 chapters to go in Uncharted and I'm planning on starting Ratchet soon.

How have you been?

Ah, I like the theme! Spiffy!

I have a confession: My backloggery game has been abysmal as of late. I didn't beat your choice last month. I haven't been keeping up with updates (still have a ton of games to add).

It's sad.

At this point I'm afraid to even try to update - it's such a mess.

Yeah I think that could be good. We can deal with that potentially. It was a bit of a nuts end to the year.

Alright, sounds good to me! I was too busy as well. I started both Pikmin 3 and Devil May Cry but made no real progress, maybe I can beat both this month!

We might have to put something in place for this years Nov/Dec pick - like maybe pick a super short game you can beat in one sit down or something. I don't know, we'll figure it out.

Either way, I hope you had a great holiday!

Haha nope. I'm going to have the same issue. Got too tied down with finals and then I went home for Christmas....I don't know if I'm gonna do any gaming over this break! It was a record low year for the kirbykiller backlog.

I'm here! I made it!

I just picked out a few games for kirby so I should be caught up with that.

Feel free to pick out a game for me. I won't be able to do my last pick since my PS3 is having all the trouble in the world reading discs all of a sudden. It started doing it near the end of my Ico playthrough and it's gotten worse. I have never had so many problems with a console in my life! Up to the PS3 I've been super lucky and never had a console give me problems or break...guess that wouldn't last.

Every other system should be open game...so go nuts.

You started writing again!?! Holy crap, that's awesome! I bookmarked your blog, I'll try to check it out a couple times a week but feel free to drop me a comment if you put something new up. Glad you started that up though, wish I could do the same. I did love talking and writing about games with all you IGN peeps. I'm not a fantastic writer by any means but just talking about games and the industry is a passion of mine.

Hope you're doing well!

Yeah that makes sense. Give him until next Friday and then if nothing then go ahead and make the choice.

Alright, because it's Christmas and the final pick I'm going to give you a few options.

Dead Space 2; Kirby and the Rainbow Curse; Tomb Raider

I threw Kirby in there because it's what I would have picked if you weren't already playing Yoshi's Wolly World and it's sort of a jolly game. The others aren't really festive but I love them both. I played Tomb Raider earlier this year, one of the few games I actually beat outside of our "game club", and thought it was pretty incredible. There were definitely some tone issues but overall I got super into it. Dead Space 2 was not as good as 1 but it had some very cool moments and still manage to strike a decent action-horror balance before things started to crumble into 3.

Yeah, switching up the day/night and adding the pool did help a bit, but I found that I just tried to adjust my strategy as little as possible and just swap in the required plants. I never understood the coffee bean. None of the mushrooms were so powerful that I'd waste two whole spots just to use them. The catapaults were all I used on the roof levels. Walls became my friend, and those bungee zombies were my nemesis. So many of my double sunflowers got stolen by those fuckers. Some of the mini games are pretty inventive, and I actually like the puzzles. Being the zombies was a neat addition that definitely could have carried it's own game.

I have Link Between Worlds but haven't opened it. Maybe in the new year? Haha. Good to hear that it lived up to its Zelda name.

I pick for you this time?

Yeah, fuck I was so close. Grad school has been a nightmare but I'm going to try to finish it off tonight or tomorrow. 2 more levels. It's been good. The frustrating part is not being able to use all the plants because of the restriction of how many plants you can take into battle. I found it really discouraged me from experimenting with the different options and just sticking to what I knew worked. It's good for the brain though. I like that there is a little depth to it, but yeah overall I wish there was more room to puzzle solve. I pretty much brute forced every level the same way without really ever coming close to failing. Although maybe that's on my own lack of inventiveness and creativity. It fit with the Halloween theme though considering I played it over October. How sad that in two months I didn't even manage to fully beat one XBLA game.

How did you enjoy your game? Was it Zelda this time or was that a carry over?
All hail Master Bak'laag!
