Weekly Rundown - 12/05-12/11

Posted by SixtyXCelph (211 posts) -

Games this week:

  • Playstation 3 - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
  • Xbox 360 - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Lost Odyssey
  • Nintendo Wii - New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • PSP - Persona 2: Innocent Sin

Holy crap. It's worth mentioning now that several of these games were barely played, but, in the interest of completeness...

Played a bunch more Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. I am loving this game. It is far superior to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, in my opinion. Holy crow, the cut scenes, though. I thought EVA would never stop talking. Hideo Kojima needs to work on his delivery of exposition.

I replayed Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, 'cause I wanted to. That game's still quite fun and the story is... explosive. And then when I was done with that, I started up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 partly to replay it, but also because I never did play through it on Veteran difficulty. I got through most of the first one on Veteran, let's see how far I can get through this one. I also barely remember the story from MW2, so, it'll be good to get it again.

And some more Lost Odyssey! As it turns out, that wasn't the end of the game and I did, in fact, return to the world map after getting through the dungeon. Also, now I have to sail the White Boa's slow ass around the world. It's necessary to continue the game. So, I may as well stop and hit some of the optional dungeons, ja? Which is where I'm at.

I played a couple games for a short time on my Wii. Which is remarkable, because it seems to get very little use these days. I should really play it more. But, anyway, earlier in the week the roommate and I played a couple levels of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It gets a little cluttered with just two people, I can only imagine how crazy is gets with four players on screen at once. And then, on Saturday I had a terrific new friend over and we played a couple levels of it, aussi. And Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Not to give away my social life too much, but Brawl is far more fun when you're playing it with someone else. I haven't touched that game in something like a year, either, so getting back into the swing of things took a couple rounds. But so much, it was a great night.

And... okay, I almost shouldn't list Persona 2: Innocent Sin. I literally played one battle, then saved it and turned it off. So, there's that this week.

And that's the last for this week. Seems like a lot. Wasn't actually, I promise. See y'all next week.
