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


11:00 PM on 11.14.2010



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.

Bennett, C.: OBSESSED WITH ZUMA BLITZ OH MY JESUS GOD.

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.

GET OFF MY LAWN!

Games of the Week for 12/26/2010: Leftovers

It is late. I am full of second-run turkey and ginger ale. The fireplace behind me is crackling out its last and the snow is piling up outside. Good thing there's plenty of warm game systems to keep us all toasty this holiday...more

Games of the Week for 12/12/2010: Crazed

There's no reason for the above image other than my own personal amusement. Carry on. Destructoid played games during the last 7 Earth-standard days. You would refer to this specific quantity of time as a "week" and we do the...more
