Puyo Pop is a typical pattern/puzzle game where you get 4 in a row to pop them as they fall down, and you can flip them in 4 different angles until they hit the ground; you try not to let them hit the top of the screen or Game Over; except that it has a storyline and is very colourful. I'm not sure if it would be classified as an RPG or not, but in my opinion it could be.
If I was measuring the quietude, or lack thereof, of the lit community in terms of the relative number of news articles, contests, prompts, and polls, I'd say it's been cacophonous rock music on a Tuesday night in the suburbs loud.
Nano, university, more university, yet more university, trying to register for classes, Nano, and other important writing things. That sort of deal...oh, and dying of laughter. That takes up a significant amount of time.
