My excuse for not posting lately is that I've been playing Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door lately. It's a blast.

But here's a personality test I got from Kat:
You Belong in London

You belong in London, but you belong in many cities... Hong Kong, San Francisco, Sidney. You fit in almost anywhere.
And London is diverse and international enough to satisfy many of your tastes. From curry to Shakespeare, London (almost) has it all!

i apparently belong in amsterdam:

A little old fashioned, a little modern - you're the best of both worlds. And so is Amsterdam. Whether you want to be a squatter graffiti artist or a great novelist, Amsterdam has all that you want in Europe (in one small city).

Yeah, I'd been waiting for the price on Paper Mario to come down too. But I had so much fun re-playing Super Mario Sunshine and Teena so enjoyed watching me play it that we broke down & paid full price for PM. We're both having a great time with the new game.

You know how SMS is so very cheery? PM is cute to the same degree. But despite the cuteness, there is a certain level of darkness to the game. The central area is a crime-ridden city called Rogueport. One of Rogueport's neighborhoods is better kept than the others. That's because a mob boss runs that part of town. It's a little disturbing to think that a kid's game is presenting the idea that there may be benefits to organized crime. Also, one of the side-quests involves picking up a mysterious package from one shady character and delivering it to another. As I said to Teena, "Great, now I'm a drug mule."

But the game is a LOT of fun.

How's Psychonauts? I've heard good stuff about it.

psychonauts is fun and easy (except for the part i got stuck on and had to look at a faq. I didn't realize the cars were objects you could open.) You can't die and should you get booted out of someones mind, i.e. a level,you can go back in pretty much where you left off. The art style is something between Tim Burton and demented muppets. The setting is a summer camp for "gifted children".

I also picked up God of War which is similar to Prince of Persia.
