The floor is lava, and the platforms are careening along at sixty miles per hour!
My inner eight-year-old can't get enough.

Chris asked me to write about my pick for the upcoming week, but I've been a bit under the weather. I've been tired, coughing a lot, not really feeling like playing my 3DS games … .
Wait. Could this be the work of a yo-kai? I might need to break out my Yo-kai Watch and fight the mischievous spirits who make life difficult. Good thing Yo-kai Watch 2 is coming soon. I can fight, befriend, and even trade over 400 types of yo-kai in this second installment of the Pokémon-style series. The only question that remains is whether to choose Bony Spirits or Fleshy Souls.

Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Shin Megami Tensei series, and it says a lot about the pace at which these games release that getting a new one just three years after Shin Megami Tensei IV feels sudden. There was a nine-year gap between Shin Megami Tensei II and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturn. There were ten years between Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei IV. But while this week's new release, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, began life as a revised and expanded version of the fourth game, it eventually became a story set in the same universe that intersects with its predecessor but stands on its own.
Shin Megami Tensei IV is one of my favorite games, and my undisputed top pick on the 3DS. Although there are some mechanical similarities, the post-apocalyptic cyberpunk cities of Shin Megami Tensei are a far cry from the disco lights and magical friendships of its sister Persona series. These games are dark, intense, and hypnotic. I am admittedly a little nervous about the alleged increase in focus on story and characters in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, but it's nonetheless my pick for game of the week.
Here's hoping we both see each other alive again.

Please allow me to introduce myself,
I’m a man of wealth and taste.
I’ve been around for long, long years,
Shot many a man in the face.
I was around when Ultor came
To lay Steelport to waste.
Made damn sure the Boss had
An attack chopper to seal their fate.
Pleased to meet you, won’t you guess my name?
