After a nice long two week break, I'm back to my usual weekend cblog recap duties. I'm honestly wondering if anyone even noticed I was gone? Anyone at all? The reason I couldn't cover the recaps the last two weekends is because I was down in Orlando, Florida for 9 days straight, visiting Sea World, Disney World, and Universal Studios. It was incredibly nice to get away from my busy life for a while and relax. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end.
Because I've been gone on vacation for so long, I haven't really had the opportunity to play a lot of games. Just a couple days ago I did finally open up the copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum I've had sitting in my cabinet for 3 months. I'm only about 2-3 hours in, but I can already see why Destructoid is considering it for their GOTY award. It's incredible!
I've also been playing GTA: Chinatown Wars on my PSPgo. That game has gotten some incredible reviews, and I was really excited to play it, but I personally don't see what's so great about it. The gameplay is just ok, and all the characters in it are extremely unlikable. What is there to like about this game? Can anyone tell me.
This will be my last recap before Christmas, so I hope everyone who celebrates it has a very merry Christmas. Hopefully you all get everything you asked Santa for. That is assuming you have all been good. I hear that if you've been bad Santa will only fill you stocking with crappy games like Darkest of Days and Tony Hawk's RIDE. Trust me when I say you don't want either of those games, so you better have been good this year.
Before I go I just wanted to remind everyone that I will be posting my "12 Days of Destructoid Christmas" song in the cblogs in the next day or so, so look for that. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
