Cleaning out my Backlog - Crayon Physics and more!!!!

Crayon Physics Deluxe

Crayon Physics Deluxe came included with a humble bundle. I played this a few years ago on my iPhone. You would draw a shape to help solve the puzzle. The look of the game was great. It looked like a child’s drawing come to life. I didn’t play much of it but I think I got tired of it. Looking forward to giving it another shot.

Hate to say it but wasn’t really a fan. I enjoyed scribblenauts more because picking the right word was more fun than drawing the right piece. Does this mean I’ll never be a famous painter, guess so. The look and music were everything I remember. It’s a wonderful game don’t get me wrong, just not my cup of tea. I can see why this was such a popular game. I had fun trying to draw the right pieces but in the end I got stuck and didn’t really want to figure it out. It’s ok to call it quits on a game…right?? Even though I thought it felt a little off playing it on my phone playing it with a mouse was worse. If you want to play this game get it for IOS or android, if its there.

Darwinia

You guessed it, humble bundle. I really have no idea what this game is. The picture background in the steam library doesn’t really give any hints. So I guess I go into this knowing nothing. Darwinia wasn’t for me. They can’t all be winners in the humble bundle.

Dead Rising 2

Now we’ve come to a first in the backlog. I bought Dead Rising 2 on steam during the holiday sale. I think it was Twenty bucks. Now this game is different from most of the backlog games because this was a full game release, not an indie game. I really loved the first Dead Rising, it was one of the first 360 games I ever bought. Truth is I bought Dead Rising 2 for 360…but never played it. I think I heard somewhere that you can get achievement points from the PC version so when I saw it on sale I bought it. I also remember hearing the PC version was really well done so another reason to pick it up but mostly the reason was points.

I decided to write a little bit about it today because I make take a little longer then the hour to two hours I’ve put into games up to this point. I might try to play the whole thing or at least half. I’ll play tonight and tomorrow until I get bored and maybe check a FAQ to see how far into I am. Like I said I played the heck out of the first one. I enjoyed the leveling system, even though I was beyond weak when you start out but I released it was a game that you had to start again sometimes. I played the 360 arcade game that introduced you to the new character so I know Frank isn’t in this one. My PC isn’t the highest end rig but it should run this fine.

* Slight little update on the Dead Rising front. I went to play the game and and it went to verify my game was legit through GFW Live and and sat verifying for 20 minutes. A look on the steam forums say I might have to install the game again and run it right away. It's been having some issues with Windows 7 64-bit. The upgrade to 64-bit works wonders with Civ 5 though. So I deleted it and am installing it once more. If this doesn't work I will play it on the 360...since it's on that backlog!

You know you can game the system in Crayon Physics Deluxe by forcing the ball into the goal with random shapes/lines, right? That's how I cheesed my way through too many of the puzzles to admit.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip!! I don't mind playing it that way!!!
