Monthly Summary - January 2011

Played This Month:

First month of the year doing this, and I really didn't think I played much. Xbox.com says otherwise and reminds me that the list isn't too thin. I ended up playing a fair amount of games whilst listening to podcasts, it's becoming a bit of a trend for me. This included playing Borderlands whilst listening to MBMBaM, plenty of DiRT 2 with TNT archives going, and some Undead Nightmare too.

I decided to play a number of last year's best DLC episodes, after the debate for GOTY. Minerva's Den was definitely the highlight of the bunch.

I bought Darksiders having borrowed when it was released and not really giving it time. Will come back to that in the coming months. Played a bit of Brotherhood but it hasn't hooked me in after several hours; When I look at the box it just doesn't fill me with the desire to fire it up, something about it seems boring and monotonous to me. Also got some Blur in from time to time, chipping away at the Career mode.

I played a lot of Nier this month, 6 hours in so far and I cannot wait to make that a regular thing, really enjoying it so far. Also back on the Super Meat Boy, unlocked the extra internet levels so.. yep. Also playing ilomilo with Lorena again, now they've released a title update that stops it crashing every time you do something unexpected.

Played the following titles a little bit: Winterbottom, Perfect Dark. Started Dead Space 2, a few hours in and it's great so far. Finished Conviction and Dog Days in split-screen co-op with J (finally).

The big obsession is Halo: I'm onto Novel 4 and I'm addicted, to the point where I'm now playing through all the games again, back to back over the next few weeks. Halo is down, Halo 2 is in the drive and already a few hours into it tonight.
