Games of the Week for 11/14/2010: Not funny edition

11:00 PM on 11.14.2010 // Conrad Zimmerman

Poor, poor Bill Murray. It was so hard on him in the early days. I can totally relate. I am far, far more funny in real life than I am on this blog. Yes, sir, I'm a veritable fount of comedy gold in person but I just can't seem to be funny on the site. Bill's suggestion would be an adequate solution, if you're so inclined.

The Destructoid staff did what it does passably this week: We played videogames and lots of them. Read on for an account of the games we played and tell us what you've been up to this past week in the comments.


Also, a wee bit of Diablo 2 with friends, for about the tenth time since the game came out. Nostalgia! 

Devore: The Tempura of the Dead and Enslaved. Best week in a while, I'd say.

Chester: Just finished Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, playing a bit of the Black Ops campaign, and a lot a Zuma Blitz.

Holmes: Tempura of the Dead, Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Miniland Mayhem, Black Ops, Syobon Action, Sports Champions, Eye Pet, Pokemon White, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, Super Crate Box, de Blob 2, Darkspore, Microbot, and some other stuff that I can't remember. 

Great week.

Sterling: Black Ops. You saw the review. You know what went down. Been playing both versions of Sonic Colors, obviously, and you can read their respective reviews for what I made of them. Also playing The UnderGarden, which is fucking great and should be at least demo'd by everybody with an Xbox Live account. Faery is another XBLA game that came out this week, and I have been enjoying it. It's an ambitious project for what it is, and some minor snags aside (especially the poor English spelling), they did well. 

Finally, I am slogging through The Ball on Steam. Solid game, a little dull in parts, but it becomes terrifyingly frantic once the monsters show up.

Razak: Plenty of Bond and my bachelor party in New Orleans. My brain is mush right now.

Zimmerman: Tons of Zuma Blitz, the new CSI game for review and The Tempura of the Dead.

Toletino: Finished up on Fallout: New Vegas, putting down a save right before the turning point so I can switch sides to get the different endings. Then I booted up Far Cry 2 and finished that. It's got a lot of flaws, but has an interesting narrative and a few great twists. And now the Gamefly people have delivered a copy of Black Ops to me, so I'm wondering whether to go ahead with my plans to purchase the PC version.

Concelmo: Got 100% in Kirby's Epic Yarn, which made me very happy. I love that game so much. One of my favorite of the year, in fact! It puts such a huge smile on my face.

Also starting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I am at the very beginning, so can't judge yet ... but it seems okay. The screen is so busy, though. Like, there is so much going on and it is hard to focus. Also, what's up with the "dagger count" numbers being so dang small? I can't read them!

Wow. I sound like an old man.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?

Wow, I feel really stupid. You had to give the Zora King the bottle with the letter in it. Like actually equip the... Wow. Oh, modern gaming conveniences, how I take you for granted.

If anyone is interested, Amazon has the $80 Persona Q limited edition at just over $40 right now. Haven't beaten it yet, but it's been a ton of fun so far, and at that price, hey!

I don't know what's been going on, but I actually feel like I have to fight with the formatting of the blog editor now to get it right. Hope it'll settle down soon.
