I think the mailman hates me.

Trying to catch up to Square in money spent this month >_>

Majora's Mask, Chrono Trigger, Devil Saga 2 and Soul Silver are all new.

If you're close to about 1.3k, then you'll be caught up.

Why did you buy Steel Battalion? IGN gave it a 3

I think that's a good enough reason. With the exception of most AAA titles, as a general rule of thumb, I flip all of IGN's scores. So, a game they give a 3 is really a 7 and vice-versa. Almost every time they say to avoid something, it ends up being a good game and most of what they praise ends up being crap. Of course, because they are extremely unreliable (I'll never get over their Afrika review), I normally don't even take them into consideration.

I usually disregard IGN's Reviews and mostly go for Users' reviews, other websites, and Game Informer.

disregard ign's score, but pay attention to the other 57 places that contributed to its sub 40% average score..

The game is truly terrible. Not just the iffy controls, but the mission design. The demo was enough for me.

Mostly it was the Town Hall and Monster House.

Careful with that Mysterious Stranger... most of that edition (I believe) was written by his editor and not Twain. A good story nonetheless, and if you like Twain check out his "true" edition: "No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger"

I had used a 10% coupon and took advantage of double VIP points. If it had been available elsewhere other than the Lego Store, I would have waited for an after Halloween clearance.

I totally forgot DNA2 was actually released here. Shame the manga never was. Katsura's works need more love, outside of I''s and Video Girl Ai.
