I've been doing a whole lot of jumping in video games recently, I'd like to talk about a few of them.
Super Meat BoyAwesome game. Really great game, but I don't know if I have the patience to finish it. Much less unlock characters, find warp zones and kill screens, or finish Dark World levels. Seriously, that game is chock full of stuff you will never see unless you play it all day every day for the next fifty years. I do like the game's sense of style though, and I'd recommend the style to more things if I could pin it down. It's like a celebration of all things video games, but not. It's also like a celebration of all things cute, but not. It's also a celebration of all things violent, but not. It's a masocore platformer with an equally masochistic style. That's it! This game is bringing hardcore S&M (minus the S, without a level creator you can't make torture of your own) to the masses.
'Splosion ManI haven't really played enough of this to justify me talking about it, but this is my blog and I'll cry if I want to. I want to like this game, but It's just too sparse with rewards to be fun. For example, when you complete a level in Super Meat Boy you get to see a replay of all your little Meat Boys (heh) running to their doom. No such gratification when you die in 'Splosion Man, and none even at the end of the level. It is growing on me, (the titular character himself is amazingly frantic) but won't be able to water it or give it proper sunshine until I finish...
Doritos Crash CourseNah, I'm really playing Banjo Kazooie: N&B. but free points is free points and they ain't gonna get themselves. Not really much to say about this one other than it's free and an okay platformer with a Wipeout (the TV show) kind of vibe. It's probably the best avatar game (at least where you play as your avatar) released right now.
I've also been doing a whole lot of driving in video games lately. I'll talk about a few of those, too.
