 Well, that was an uneventful Ninja Turtle Month! I played most of the games I set out to play, but time just went flying by and 'fore I knew it, August was over!

 Game of August:
 In hindsight, I might've been a tad too generous with Silent Hill 1. I mean, I love the game, but I'm pretty sure every subsequent game, at least Team Silent entries, completely blew this one out of the park. That said, I can appreciate the origins of some of the franchise's staples, like the flashlight and the open world-ish exploration of the town. There's a lot to like in Silent Hill 1, and it's impressive just how much it stood the test of time.

  Man, this game got so much undue flak! From people claiming that the hideously aged beat'em ups from Konami were better than this, to people not 'getting' the game. It's short, it's repetitive, but it's what someone should expect from a modern day beat'em up. The boss fights were absolutely frantic which made them oh so much fun to play, and the exploration was way more fun than it had any right to be. I also enjoyed being able to customize each turtle to fit different roles. Honestly, I got most of what I wanted from this game, and it's definitely one of the better TMNT games, not that that is saying much.
