“Of the (Half) Month” January 2015

Video Game of the Month:
CapnToad Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
A delightful action/puzzle game with an old-fashioned, block-based layout and controllable camera angles. Starring Captain Toad from the Mario Galaxy Series of games, you work your way through a series of small(ish) tableaus, collecting as much treasure as you can before snagging the star, the goal of the level. Toad can’t jump (his explorer’s backpack is too heavy). About all he can do is run around avoiding enemies and tugging stuff outta the ground (like in Super Mario Bros 2). It’s great, simple fun.

Album of the Month:
HootHootsThe Hoot Hoots: Colorpunch
The Hoot Hoots are a Seattle mainstay. They’ve opened for Julia Massey & The Jesus Rehab and vise-versa countless times. They’re good, fun, colorful rock with a playful, comedic bent. This album is some catchy, catchy schtuff.

Movie of the Month:
CAtWSotm Captain America: The Winter Soldier
A tight, tense, political thriller that somehow takes place in the same universe as Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy. Read my full review here!
