Weekly Rundown - 05/07/12-05/13/12

Games this week:

  • Xbox 360 - Mass Effect
  • Game Boy Color - Pokémon: Blue Version
  • PC - the white chamber

So, just to touch on it, I really only barely played any Mass Effect this week. I basically did a few side missions and that was it. I think I'm starting to slow down. I can feel my interest waning. I may start skipping side missions here and there and just power on to Mass Effect 2, which is so much better.

A lot of my time went into a different game, though, called the white chamber (click the link to download and play completely free). It's a really good game that I recommend for anyone who's a fan of point-and-click and horror games. It doesn't do anything particularly special, but it's short, free, and pretty creepy at parts. It has some really nods and references, though, to things like the NES and the Penny Arcade guys. There are several different endings, most of which are just various ways of dying, and at the end of the game it gives you suggestions for things to try on your next playthrough that is effective. I play through it three times this past week. Seriously, give it a shot.

And, of course, the Pokemans. Got myself a Snorlax! Continuing on my way. Need to pick a water Pokémon and I think I'm going to go with Flareon over Vulpix, if only because his stats win. So, my team right now consists of Shazam (Kadabra), Fluffy (Ivysaur), Train (Pikachu), Clifford (Flareon), Ron (Fearow), and Momma (Marowak). As you can see, some changes were made. I'm thinking, once I've decided on a water Pokémon, I may dump Ron for it. May be better to roll without a flying Pokémon, I think. For the first time ever, I'm regretting starting with Bulbasaur, I'd forgotten how much more challenging it makes creating a team.

And then that's it for this past week! See y'all next week!
