Game Diary - May 30, 2008

Since the last entry,

*I dined with Kotaku's Leigh Alexander, who had a copy of "The World Ends With You" in her DS. At last! Someone I could use the game's wireless data-sharing Mingle mode with. But...but... she hadn't played enough of the game to unlock Mingle mode. Why in the world would even this most passive of multiplayer modes -- a mode that simply allows players to log each other's IDs, earn experience points as a reward for making a connection, and trading items -- be something that has to be unlocked?

Next: I will spend some of the weekend with "Ninja Gaiden II," but how much bloody chopping can a man take? We'll see.
