My regular work week was shortened in honor of Chinese New Year. (Happy Chinese New Year to the asian audience.)
I haven’t played many grandiose games this week. Devil May Cry 4 is still with FutureShop and I have no idea when it’ll be arriving. I’m still trudging through Odin Sphere, but I’m so glad I’m not playing this game exclusively; it would have made me numb. I wrapped up my Wipeout: Pulse review which should be online this coming Tuesday for the game’s U.S. release.
I also downloaded PixelJunk Monsters after so much recommendation from NeoGAF and 1UP Show two week’s ago. At first I thought it was just a glorified tower defense flash game which I could play online for free, but it’s not. For some odd reason, I thought the game was well worth the $8.99 asking price. Something about sitting on my couch and relaxing to a well polished tower defense game was very appealing. I’m not completely sold on the visual style, though. It works, but I’m not entirely in love with it. On this note, I guess I will be delaying Rez HD download.
I’m torn with Lost Odyssey and this week’s 1UP Show isn’t helping it. Mass Effect took a lot out of me with regards with patience and tolerance. At this point in time, I don’t want to put up with technical issues, load times or reading pages of text in a game. It also doesn’t help that this game shamelessly rips off Final Fantasy.
That’s all from for now. Anyone else have interesting weekend plans?
Don’t want to rub it in, but I’ve rented DMC4 and liking it. Since it’s my first experience with a DMC game, I’m playing it in human mode and I’m almost done.
