Games Played in 2010

December 31, 2010

My “Games Completed” list this year is quite good.  Part of that is that my total number of games played is inversely proportional to the amount of time I play World of Warcraft.  Meaning I didn’t play much Warcraft this year, so I played a lot of other things.  The other reason is that I really tried to put an emphasis on completing games this year.  I pick up a lot of games and tend to dabble a lot, but I’m easily distracted by the next thing and leave many games hanging.  This year I dabbled less and finished more.  So without further ado…

Zark’s E3 Roundup and Best of Show

June 18, 2010

Ok, I’m saturated with E3 2010 news, and ready to throw down the final verdict.  It’s a long one, so grab some popcorn and adult libation (or beverage of choice) and read on…

E3 2010 Nintendo Media Briefing Live Thoughts

June 15, 2010

Okay, here we go with Nintendo’s press conference:

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
– Lots of time showing Zelda control. Uses Wii MotionPlus.
– Some control issues. Stage issue or game issue?
– Looks fun. Lots of items to use.
– Not coming out until “next year”

Mario Sports Mix
– The Mario sports franchises have been pretty silent the last few years, so I’m not surprised.

Just Dance 2
– Dance games are the new music game genre this year.
– Doesn’t pick up full body moves like Kinect.  But that might mean it’s not as hard.

Papercraft Friday #80: Professor Layton and the Curiously Diabolical Papercraft

April 2, 2010

Fans of the Nintendo DS Professor Layton puzzle game series might take a keen interest in this one.  While you’re waiting for developer Level-5 to bring the other games in the series to the U.S. (not to mention the feature film!), you can  make yourself a nice little Professor Layton of your own.

There isn’t actually anything really curiously diabolical about this papercraft, except that it’s Japanese and requires Pepakura Viewer to view and print.  Download the .pdo file.

Not keen on this one?  Want more?  Check out other Papercraft Friday posts.

Papercraft Friday #72: Spirit Tracks Link

January 22, 2010

Something draws me towards the Link and Zelda papercrafts.  I don’t know why.  But Nintendo Papercraft recently posted a model of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, playing the Spirit Flute.  I’ve recently started playing that on the Nintendo DS, and it’s pretty good.  I’m gonna have to add this model to the collection.  You can download it in A4 or Letter size at Nintendo Papercraft.


Games Played in 2009

December 31, 2009

I tend to buy more games than I play, and play more games than I finish, so I though this year I’d make a list of games played, with an * next to ones I’ve finished.  I’m sure this list will miss a lot, but here’s a go at it.

  • Age of Booty (XBLA) *
  • Animal Crossing: City Fold (Wii)
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
  • The Beatles: Rock Band (Xbox 360) *
  • Bejeweled Blitz (web & iPod touch)
  • Beneath a Steel Sky Remastered (iPod Touch)
  • Beyond Good And Evil (Gamecube)
  • Chrono Trigger (DS)
  • Deadly Creatures (Wii)
  • Dead Space (PS3)
  • Dragon Age: Origins (XBLA)
  • Dragon’s Lair (iPod Touch)
  • Dungeon Hunter (iPod Touch)
  • Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard (DS)
  • Fable II (Xbox 360)
  • Farmville (web)
  • Flower (PSN) *
  • Final Fantasy XII (PS2) *
  • Gears of War (Xbox 360) *
  • Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360) *
  • God of War (PS2)
  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS)
  • Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox) *
  • Halo 2 (Xbox)
  • House of the Dead: Overkill (Wii) *
  • Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (Wii)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (DS)
  • Legends of Zork (web)
  • LEGO Rock Band (Xbox 360) *
  • Metroid Prime (Gamecube)
  • Moon (DS)
  • New Super Mario Bros Wii (Wii)
  • NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits (Wiiware)
  • Pac-Man Championship Edition (XBLA & iPod Touch)
  • Peggle (iPod Touch)
  • Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360) *
  • Resistance 2 (PS3) *
  • Rock Band (iPod Touch)
  • The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition (XBLA & iPod Touch)
  • Shadow Complex (XBLA) *
  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Wii)
  • Sims 3 (Mac)
  • Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
  • Tales of Monkey Island Part 1 (Wiiware)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Reshelled (XBLA)
  • Toki Tori (Wiiware)
  • Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (PS3) *
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3) *
  • Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (Mac) *
  • Wii Sports Resort (Wii)
  • World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (Mac)

Not a bad list.  I actually finished more than I expected. Sadly, there are no PSP games on that list.  Not a good year for the PSP, even outside the PSP Go fiasco.  The Playstation 3, the console I have the least amount of games for, actually had a very good showing this year.

For those that just have to know, my Game of the Year, without a shred of doubt, is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

November 14, 2009

aceattorneydemo has an exclusive playable flash demo of the upcoming Nintendo DS game Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth.  The game is not due to hit U.S. shores for another 3 months or so, but you can get a quick fix with this demo.  I hope more games produce flash demos like this in the future.
