What’s In Our Consoles- July 30 Edition

July 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Wish this car was in GT5. 😦

I think this week, I have spent more time on my iTouch than my console. Gamefly still hasn’t charged my account, so it’s still on hold, too. I probably won’t get anything to start reviewing until late next week. Though I will start working on a few iOS games soon. But anyhow, let’s knock the PS3 stuff out first.

What’s in Our Consoles- July 23rd Edition

July 23, 2011 Leave a comment

On the podcast, years ago, I had a segment “What We’ve Been Playing”. This is the blog version of that. If we had more writers here at Gameciety, each writer would send in a few paragraphs. But instead, I will write a few paragraphs about what I have been playing this week.

Obviously, I have been playing some review games. Games, you ask? Yes, I am working on the next review, Limbo for PSN. I started it yesterday afternoon, got about halfway through in my hour sitting, and meant to finish it last night. Game is twisted, graphically pleasing, and a very fun puzzler. I’m not crazy about the “die as many times as you want, and just spawn a few feet back”, and that will deal heavily in the score it gets, but besides that, it really is a fun game.

And I’ve been sucked back into Gran Turismo 5, thanks to the guys at Initial D World forums, and the Facebook group chat we have been using. Finally delved into some online racing. Seems it takes forever for people to get started. And most of my cars are untuned, so that takes more time. But it isn’t too laggy, and it can be fun with friends. Seasonal Event updates have me playing pretty consistently, too.

Lastly, on the PS3, I played a little Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with a clan mate. Its amazing how fun that game is, and it made me want Battlefield 3 more than I already do. The maps are SO good. There’s really only a few that I do not like.

On the iOS, I played some Pocket Academy finally. That game is hard to get into. I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure it out, and finally gave up. It’s by the same people that made Game Dev Story, one of my favorite iOS games of all time. And just recently picked up My Car Salon for free. It’s a time management game, like Diner Dash, only a helluva lot better. Actually, it’s more like Pretty Pet Salon, another free time-management game by the same company. Only My Car Salon is very easier to get into and get things upgraded.

One last game on iOS for this week is another freebie, it’s Eternity Warriors. A hack and slash “RPG”. Its very basic, and I have only just started playing it, but it can be fun. Mind numbing button bashing, and leveling up. I am having a hard time navigating the main menu, if it can even be called that. But again, its free. And it has Game Center, both multiplayer and achievos.

Next week, I got more Limbo, probably more Gran Turismo 5, and I need to get back into Fallout: New Vegas.

What’s In Our Console: April 9th Edition

April 3rd – April 9th 2011
This is hopefully a new segment, and replaces the same segment from the podcast (not that anyone remembers those days.). This will just be semi-random banter about the games I’ve been playing. Feel free to leave a comment with what you’ve been playing! And if I add more authors to the site, they will be featured here as well.
