Week 36 - Games blog

Games played last week:
VVVVVV - Steam
Had no idea what this was before I saw this on Steam sale. Absolutely amazing game, hits the nerve perfectly here. Review coming up later on today. Purchased the soundtrack as well. Could listen to Passion to Explore all day long.

Mafia 2
Mafia 2 - Jimmy's Vendetta
Both for Xbox 360. Went back and finished Mafia 2 on hard difficulty and got all the Playboy magazines. Had really hard time on the fat bastard by the peer. Must have used at least two hours on it. Had a sound tactic all along, but just got some cheap deaths. Had I played and reviewed the game on Hard level the score would not have been so kind. The cheap deaths behind a wall is so much worse on Hard difficulty. Had to also get Jimmy's Vendetta on the day it was released. Bit disappointing tbh. Had it not been the cool end boss battle it would have been so much worse. Anyway review up that as well. My first DLC review!?! Would really like to get back to Mafia 2and finish all the achievements here. Even the 10000 mile one which takes hours and hours. We'll see, definitely not done with this game yet.

Samorost 1 - PC
Been getting into more indie games recently. Installed Samorost 2 which I got from the Humble Indie Bundle while back. Checked the first Samorost and it appears that is all free. So finished it. Really nice game, but way too short. Play it at: http://amanita-design.net/samorost-1/

Blue Dragon - Xbox 360
Had some disc issue but finally got those sorted and Mafia 2 finished (twice). Main focus has been on this for last couple of days and will be til its finished. I am at halfway through second disc. Really enjoying the story and the battle mechanism. Had tiny culture clash after all that Mafia 2. This is just so Japanese game, in good and bad. Kelo

New purchases:
Railroad Tycoon II: Platinum  
Freedom Force & Freedom Force vs 3rd Reich
Both for Steam. All three my favorite games that I surely got a hardcopy somewhere already. Hopefully still play these one day eh.

Metro 2033
Brutal Legend
Both for Xbox 360. Play.com had(has?) a sale where you get two titles fo £25. About time for me to get Brutal Legends. And of course Metro 2033. Steal for that price if you ask me.
Mafia 2: Jimmy's Vendetta - Xbox 360

Blue Dragon - Xbox 360
Had this game already but the disc 2 was so scratched that it wouldn't install. Not likely that it would get past that point when playing the game so got a new copy, well used one from Ebay.

Random youtube linkage, the awesome Passion for Exploration from VVVVVV sountrack: PPPPPP
