It's almost as if I've run out of things to say or write about in FURTHER READING each day. As WRITE UP has been happening much less often, I think on a regular basis I'll talk about what I've been playing.
With my new Gamecube I played several games including SSX3, The Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (how do I get the skin back to the hulk instead of Bruce Banner?), and Wario World. I think on several levels, Wario World is actually a better game than Super Mario Sunshine. It has better combat, more traditional platforming action, and more coin collecting. But really, who's going to say that a Wario game is better than a Mario game? Not I.
