Platformed out... for now

Just completed The Simpsons Game. It was a fun send up to video gaming much like Bard's Tale was. The content was memorable and the writers and designers were able to make me laugh throughout the experience.

As expected, the gameplay was only so-so. And, there wasn't as much smashy-smashy as I would have liked. My bar is quite high for platformer/action-adventure games, especially with both the Ratchet & Clank and the Lego Star Wars series as shining examples of what these kinds of games can be.

Still, it was an excellent rental.

I also moved Ratchet & Clank: Future Tools of Destruction to the "done with" pile for now. I'd like to go through the game again and purchase more upgrades, but it's hard to justify mining existing content when the list of games to play is piling up -- and I don't get any gamer points for completing PS3 achievements.

I'm looking forward to some demos and XBLA games tomorrow. In between watching football and playing two more hockey games.
