GT5 - for some reason I didn't have the huge install, and I rented it before the patches came out so I missed that too. It's a lot of fun in places though, hope you enjoy it. Did you buy it and has it come down in price much? I was thinking of buying it but it was still pretty pricey here last time I looked.
I'm just back from holiday so I hope to finish off Far Cry 2 soon and also get to grips with Madden 12 (I need to get to the next level, where I can use audibles effectively and start messing with sliders and stuff).
The budget price "platinum games" edition of GT5 just came out, that's why amazon apparently started to throw out the regular copies they still have for a reduced price. I paid 20 pounds which is pretty ok.
Now that I actually could play GT5 it's quite a lot of fun. I got used to the handling thanks to the extensive tutorial (that license stuff) and now do some beginner races with my Honda Civic and some of the challenges (carting, nascar, nürburgring). I also just got me an Evo X, what else do I need?
Due Sex sounds like an amazing game. I need to play and often!
Currently playing LEGO: Pirates of the Caribbean. So far so good, but it's your standard LEGO: Insert-Franchise-Here game. Think Star Wars: Original Trilogy may still be the best one.
Also, still playing Donkey Kong Country Returns. Running through a couple levels a day. Overall, a really great game, though I am kind of wishing the gameplay was more along the lines of the superb Jungle Beat.
Been playing Cities in Motion. Steam had the full game, minus one DLC pack for $9.99 the other day. Really like it alot, although the interface can be a little unfriendly at times, and it can be very easy to wreck your budget with overbuilding. I am impressed with the size of the program though. It's small but does alot and the city scrolls like butter.
I dunno, I splurged all my cash on stupid American muscle cars, which was great There's an old Dodge Challenger, I think, which fits the entry requirements of a lot of races. However, I definitely found the small car races most fun. There's one where you race VW Polos or something around the Nurburgring...Lupos, that was it! Fantastic fun.
I got myself a '71 Ford Mustang Mach 1, supercharged it and now participate in races with all those fancy modern cars. They might be quicker around the corner, but the raging yellow monster which is my Mustang gets them everytime there's more than 20 meters straight road
The only race I didn't enjoy so far was the one with a VW bus around the top gear test track. I got disqualified 10 times just because of little bumps here and there
finally upgraded to a smartphone, so last weeks exercise was balance my mobile or fondle the screen.
Fun for a while, but as a gaming platform it's really not much better than many flash games on PC. Except the sensation of the different controls. Like with the wii. For a short period of time great.
The apple standard 99ct seems low, but many games are hardly worth that much.
Luckily on the Android platform many games are sponsored via ads.
vvvvvv with Sonic-speed on rails, or so. Rather short, rather hard. Fun for its length, but i have no desire to play such a game longer.
Pretty funny to time the Ninjas movement right but the current task is out of my reach and repeating the same levels endlessly is not fun enough to try longer.
First impression: Motion Control works surprisingly good. I really would want to see Hydroventure/ Fluidity on such a platform. when directly holding the in game book/game world.
Funny for some time, but it lacks any form of variety to be fun longer than some minutes.
I think Doodle Jump is the more well known original.
Fun and has at least some variety.
An unpolished Geometry Wars clone. Four game modes, one too easy to get gold, one impossible to get even bronze.
Actually usable but touch controls suck, especially when two thumbs are blocking the view on the screen.
Slightly rough in the controls when using two fingers. Also too unprecise with one finger. Would need a stylus pen. So a lot of undoes are necessary before slicing the geometry with the intented direction is possible.
Other than that great game.
A little unresponsive when touching the points.
Hope the later levels get harder, but also a great one.
Sudokus are great and there are plenty of apps available. I tried four and deleted the other ones. Here the program is giving some reasonable help with coloring the active number.
Unblock me free
Moving blocks to free a mouse or a red master block.
Both are a little unresponsive or react not at all when moving too fast.
But a fun puzzle game.
Speedx 3D free
Precise motion control, but it lacks a wider dead zone. Going straight on is hard.
Seems a bit too fast too hard, since the view is limited and evading is hard already in stage 2 of 4.
aTilt 3D Labyrinth Free
Nice labyrinth game. Balancing the phone horizontally to guide a ball to its exit.
I like puzzle games with moving blocks.
Angry Birds (Season/ Rio)
Much better than expected. Thought it would be a dumbed down clone of Worms, actually it is, but it's fun to play with doing the input via touchscreen and not via pc peripherals.
Burn the Rope
Ignite a rope and then rotate the mobile to guide the flame upwards. Easy on the first levels but later i have to dye the flame in the correct color to be able to burn the according ropes. Great.
And the best is: all of above are free.
was pre installed. Pretty much the same as Tiger Woods games or any golf game ever was. Aim, hit the 100% power, look on the terrain while putting.
I don't like golf games.
Cut the rope might be interesting. But bother to give google my credit card info for a game below 1€? No for now. Maybe when other better games attract my attention.
love the tower defense w/maze building and FPS elements. Artistically and soundwise, it's pleasantly clean. Like the planning stage, like the attacks. Surprisingly diverting. Not terribly deep, but deep enough.
Since Dark Souls isn't out for another week, I've been looking at Xenonauts (the eurogamer expo build). The game has no release date yet but my craving for a new XCom title made me pre-order this game. This video
should give some idea what it's like. Or this article. It does feel very much XCom down to the initial confusion of what the hell is going on. I hope they include some kind of tutorial until release, otherwise people might be frightened by the sheer amount of stuff that has to be considered. I'm looking forward to the release
Great, glad it's working out. Probably not your thing, but make sure and check out the original Mount & Blade. I got it on a whim and it ended up one of my favourite games. You can probably get it for a couple of bucks now.
