Weekly Vice #2

  What I have been playing:

 

Well I skipped a week since last sunday I had the hangover of lifetime, saturday night had been spent mostly in the gutter, being dragged home by some chick, and waking

up to find my car and homekeys gone. So this will be a summary of these two weeks, as far as I can recollect. I got Dante's Inferno, played some of that.  Fairly impressed with the game, its got a nice flow to it and the art design is just top notch. The levels of hell I've grazed through look like they indeed were made by madmen, what the hell is up with Lust? Probably the sickest stuff I've seen in a serious videogame, I loved it though.  
 
This weekend I've just got the kick to fire up the Wii again. I went to town and got 

a boy and his blob fairly cheap and have been playing it pretty much all weekend, I'm in the third world, the homeplanet of the blobs, and I gotta say, this game really pulls all the right strings for me. I really feel like I'm 8 years old, sitting in my living room and playing a fantastic SNES game, only its 2010 and it's the Wii. Fantastic nostalgic feeling and also for this game, fantastic art design, everything looks handdrawn with fantastic animations all across the board, I'm taking a break from playing the game to say this but I really can't recommend this game enough, don't let this pass you by if you are the slightest bit retro. 
 

What I read this week:

  
The only thing that really stood out to me was the cancellation of the PC version of Alan Wake. I was looking forward to the game but Microsoft felt the game should be played infront of a television set and not infront of a computer screen, and thats why we will be left with one option to buy this game. I was hoping for a benchmark on the PC, and I really do believe we will be left with the no option but buying the inferior version. Footage from the game has mostly been captured from the PC build, so what the hell is the Xbox 360 version looking like? Way to screw your own PC market Microsoft.

@SteveVice: Really? I didn't know Alan Wake being xbox only, that's a bummer. Hopefully they'll realize their mistake, it's only more sales, despite the piracy.
