Moa: The King of Destruction

I still need to identify the original M. Unless they're talking about James Bond.

Well, without anything better to do today, I went to pick up my copy of Metroid: Other M. I haven't played it much yet, but it's a pretty good game. I just don't see where the reviewers are saying it's like a Metroid game. It feels more like a Zelda game with a blaster. Case in point: Energy Tank Parts. Collect four of them to complete an Energy Tank. I'm not kidding. This exists. I guess it's an alternative to filling the game with more Missile Tanks and Ship Missile Tanks than anyone could possibly need. Especially since refilling missiles is a matter of pointing the remote at the ceiling and holding A for a few seconds. The auto-target is a bit disconcerting, but pretty much required given the perspective. And I hate switching to first-person mode to fire missiles. It wouldn't be so bad if I could move, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO... we don't need to use the Wii controls the way they were intended.

It's going to be a long night, as I stay awake until my ride to Dragon*Con arrives around 3:30. More Other M, I suspect, because I need to pack my laptop a bit early and make sure everything I need fits properly and I haven't forgotten anything. I've got the postcard with my proof of registration, my manga list (in case anyone's selling), a book, my medicines, my checkbook and a pen, clothes for five days (one more than I should need, just in case), and the car charger for my cell phone. I'll pack the outlet charger and the phone itself last, when I'm ready to leave.

No idea what sort of connection I'll have at the hotel, but I should be able to post from my cell phone if necessary. I'm also still feeling a bit too lazy to work on that 30 days of anime meme, but I've still got more than five hours to go, so we'll see how bored I get. There's still Boreas in God of War 3. As if THAT'S possible.
