I had a bit of an urge to play Super Mario 3D Land last night. I finished the main game a good couple of months ago, and did some of the bonus levels too, but put it aside then and played something else. Anyway, went through a couple of the bonus worlds last night and had great fun. The level design in this game is fantastic. The graphics are of a very high quality too. I was only planning on playing for a while, but ended up putting two hours into it. The only thing I will say is that S-World 3-5 is fricking nuts
That was one hard as nails stage that took me a long time last night to finish. The challenge throughout is great though. Replaying the stages for the coins you missed adds lots of extra fun to the game. Over, this is one of my favourite 3D Mario games ever.
Next game I gave some attention to was Soul Calibur V on the PS3. I have to say..... well I put it on quite late last night, so maybe I wasn't quite in the right frame of mind to play a new title, but I wasn't too impressed with the gameplay. It just doesn't flow quite like the first and second games in the series. The story is pretty cool though. We'll see how it goes, but I'm not sure about this one yet.
