Ibb and Obb can be played local co op style, too. Haven't played too much of it, but it's kinda neat. Haven't tried Brothers yet, but it is on the list. I keep hearing how good it is.

So I've just finished Brothers...

Hidden
...and now I don't know how I feel about the game. I've fallen head over heels in love with it the more I've played - it's been sublime at every turn, right up until the end. But I do not like the ending.

I'm not going to say they made a mistake or they got it wrong, because it's their artistic vision and that's the story they wanted to tell from the outset. But they really lost me with it.

The fact that I'm still, however, not giving away details of what I'm actually grumbling about, even in a spoiler box, must mean it hasn't stopped me wanting others to play it. So it can't have ruined the experience for me altogether.

Indeed, I think there's still a lot to enjoy in this highly imaginative game and who knows, maybe the ending will "click" with you and it'll be the cherry on a delicious cake that I've otherwise enjoyed wholeheartedly.

So if you haven't played it, I suggest you do so. My dismay at the game's conclusion may pass - I was thoroughly unimpressed with the ending to one of my favorite films on first viewing, and now it makes the movie for me. So disregard my raw reaction to 5% of the game and go enjoy the other 95% at the very least.

I've been playing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Catchy title. Fun game. I just wish it had a story mode like Brawl did.

I caved and bought a PS4. Right now, I'm kind of regretting it for various reasons, but when Uncharted 4 is released, I'll be happy. Also, kinda stoked that I get Injustice: Gods Among Us for free with PS+ next month. YAY!

But of course.

Seriously though, good film.

Did you ever watch any Ultimate Muscle /Kinnikuman, James?

I'd never heard of it until a quick search just now, but with character names like Vance McMadd and Dik Dik Van Dik it can't be anything but awesome.

From what I've seen of it, it is indeed awesome. It was my personal favorite, and the most genuinely funny of the anime shows brought over to western kids channels a decade ago or so.

Yeah I had those little mini figure things too. Never knew they were from Kinnikuman until I saw Ultimate Muscle.

In the eighties the toys were called M.U.S.C.L.E and i used to melt them in my microwave way too much, hahahaa. I can't even describe properly just how much fun i had melting those fuckers, hahhaaa. The show looks cool, though, i'll definitely check it out.

I thought they looked like M.U.S.C.L.E. toys, so that makes sense now.

I was a Monster in My Pocket kid. Had the crappy plastic mountain display stand, the playing cards, and the action board game. They had me sucked right in and I loved it.

I played the NES game a bit back in the day, pretty neat. You can't go wrong with monsters, haha.
