“Of the Month” January 2010

Link of the Month:

EDIT: This site just went through a major re-design that took out all of the functionality that I liked about it and replaced it with, well, nothing but shit. Please do not visit or support them.

DVD & ALBUM of the Month:
They Might Be Giants: Here Comes Science
Not only is this TMBG album full of fun, catchy tunes, but since they’re all science themed, you get some great songs about how you shouldn’t believe anything unless it’s been verified through experimentation. And not only is it a great album, but They went ahead and got animators to make animated music videos for each and every single song on the album, and they put them all together as a DVD!

Game of the Month:
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
Another brilliant Zelda game in the Wind Waker chronology. This one takes place after Phantom Hourglass, and has some wonderful innovation, like the central theme of the game: trains. You use a train to get from place to place, and you have to switch from track to track to avoid explosive enemy trains, and you have to haul cargo around without damaging or dropping it, and you have to carry passengers without making them think you’re a completely unsafe train engineer. Also, there are a series of dungeons where you can actually team up with Zelda and control both characters to solve the puzzles. It’s good.
