“Of the Month” September 2010

Link of the Month:
Link of the MonthVacation Rentals By Owner
For the past few years Carrie & I have used this website pretty much every time we’ve gone on vacation. Why stay at a hotel or motel when you travel someplace when instead you can stay in a house or cabin—sometimes for an absurdly inexpensive amount? VRBO is a catalog of vacation rental properties that honestly will make your vacation much more individual and personal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Album of the Month:
Album of the Month Anamanaguchi – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game
Anamanaguchi is one of my favorite instrumental rock band. They consist of guitar, bass, drums, a Nintendo Entertainment System, and a Nintendo Game Boy. Their music is a fusion of 8-bit Chiptune sounds and traditional rock. As such their music is perfectly suited for the retro-chic stylings of the Scott Pilgrim video game. This soundtrack will appeal especially to any fans of Hip Tanaka and Yuukichan’s Papa.

Game of the Month:
DVD of the Month Metroid: Other M
Nintendo again takes a big risk with one of their most-beloved franchises: Other M is surprisingly experimental for such a mainstream game, especially in terms of the play control scheme(s). It adds many surprising elements to the franchise, like cut-scenes and close-quarters combat systems. At its heart, though, it is still a Metroid game with its definite emphasis on exploration and hidden item collection. Not flawless by any means, Other M is a bold choice to be admired and, ultimately, enjoyed quite a heck of a lot.
