Weekly Vice #1

What I have been playing:

 
Kind of bad week to start off with as I've been working hellish hours and haven't had much time to do anything game related, but today I fired up my PSP and played some games from Capcom Classic Collection Reloaded
 
I went through a couple of rounds with 1942, landing a score of 35380, which got me a 2nd place on the ingame leaderboard, which I guess is a pretty miserable scored compared to seasoned veterans of the game. Worth noting that I played the game on Normal difficulty. The game is okay for what it is, but there are way better games in the genre, and the artistic style of the game really make it feel static and boring. 
 
Then I played some SonSon and got beat the ingame highscore with a score of 31850,  most likely a terrible score as well. The game was pretty shitty in my opinion and didn't really have any fun with it. Can't say that I've played too many games like it so the idea was to me a little original, but it really wasn't any fun to play.
 
After that I hit a game called Higemaru my best score was 13650. It was probably the game I had the most fun with, kind of like a Bomberman with barrels. I will definitly be playing more of it. 
 

What I read this week:

 

Episodes from Liberty City on PS3

 
So the inevitable happened, both GTA IV episodes are now coming to the PS3. I'm looking forward to playing The Ballad of Gay Tony, but I'm not really interested in The Lost and the Damned. The news wasn't really surprising but it just further baffles me why Microsoft got into the 50 million USD deal with Take-Two if it only meant timed exclusivity. We don't know the full details of the deal but we know Take-Two recieved a deferred revenue of 50 million USD which was split even on the two episodes. This could not have been in any way a profit for Microsoft, seeing as both sold pretty poorly. The two financial winners here are really Rockstar and Sony.
