Games of the week for 11/29/09: Cheesy dipstick edition

9:30 PM on 11.29.2009 // Jim Sterling

I was recently introduced to a British musical outfit known as Kunt and the Gang. I have decided that it is my favorite band in the whole wide world and that everybody should pay homage to Kunt's musical genius. As evidence of his talent, I submit his cover version of "I Kissed A Girl," titled "I Sucked Off A Bloke." It is the work of a God in human form.

Speaking of sucking people off, we played videogames this week. As always, hit the jump to find out which ones.

PerLee: Stuck in some border land, left for dead too, and trying to take care of my ass...creed 2.

Sterling: Biiiiig list this week:

Serious Sam HD, Dawn of War 2, Fallout 3, Quake, Doom 2, Killing Floor, The Witcher, Audiosurf, Team Fortress 2, Tropico 3, God of War: Collection.

Trouble is, outside of Serious Sam and The Witcher, I've only managed to play about ten minutes of each!

Concelmo: My favorite gaming time of year is the four-day Thanksgiving weekend. Usually it consists of me playing some hot new IP that just released during the holiday season, but strangely enough, I played mostly older re-releases this time. The God of War Collection and the Metroid Prime Trilogy took most of my time, and I have to admit, all five games on these compilations are superb. In particular the second God of War and the first Metroid Prime are truly perfect specimens of game design. SO GOOD!

I also played some LEGO Indiana Jones 2 and a little Sam & Max Beyond Time & Space.

Holmes: This week has been such a blur, I'm not even sure what I played.

I know for sure that I got another PS3. The disc drive on my first one broke a few weeks ago, and everywhere I went, they told me it would cost between $140 and $170 to fix it. I decided on getting a used 20GB model for $200 instead, picked it up on Wed, and went completely nuts replaying PS2 games that I've never played before or haven't touched in forever. Persona 4, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, We <3 Katamari, Ape Escape 3, and a lot more that I just can't remember.

It made me realize that we aren't going to have another PS2 this generation. Sure, there will be one console that sells more than all the rest, there always is. It's just not going to be another PS2. It's not going to be a place where almost all of the biggest, most popular games and the smallest, most interesting games can both be found. The PS2 really was a perfect storm in that way.

Also bought Flower on sale. Meh.

On the Wii, I still can't beat the Tofu level in Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles, which is awesome, because Tofu levels were made to be cruelly difficult. Speaking of which, Bit.Trip VOID is living up to expectations. It's kicking my ass in a wonderful way. When I get exhausted with being thrilled (and killed) by little white dots, I pick up Pokemon Rumble, which allows you to murder approx three Pokemon a second. It's a total Poke'-holocaust, or Poke'-caust, or whatever.

Finally, played more New Super  Mario Bros. Wii with friends. It's not getting old.

Razak: I've had a crazy hectic week so all I got to do was dive back into Beneath a Steel Sky which I started a while back. Further in and it's getting really good. I'm retro this week.

Sarkar: I succumbed to a few of the Steam sales this week -- I picked up Osmos for $2, Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That for $5 (on Anthony's recommendation, so I'm going to demand five bucks from him if I don't like those games), and Plants vs. Zombies for $5. Seriously, kids, if you know what's good for you, you'll forget that Steam has a "Games Under $5" page. If you gaze at it, you'll be turned to stone ... and your wallet will be emptied.

I didn't actually get around to playing any of them, though, because it was a double cash weekend for Uncharted 2! I played a bunch of ranked competitive MP and had lots of fun with Doughnut Drake and Doughnut Lazarevic. It was hilarious to see obese versions of those characters jumping around and climbing walls. Man, I love Naughty Dog. I also played a crapload of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, which is as addictive as ever; I'm now up to level 26. I'm still finding the SCAR-H to be my favorite weapon, but I'm going to give the recently unlocked FAL a shot (no pun intended) to see if it can become this game's G3 (which was my weapon of choice in CoD 4).

Finally, I began playing Machinarium, which is awesome. My brain hasn't had that kind of workout since, well, I played Machinarium at PAX!

Tolentino: Still without a PS3, I spent most of my gaming time this week playing Shin megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. Then I spent most of Saturday trying to tweak the graphics settings on Dragon Age in an attempt to squeak more than 10 frames a second out of it. I failed, but the game is still (technically) playable.

Chester: Assassin's Creed 2, Heavy Rain, Band Hero, God of War Collection, iCarly for the Wii, Rock Band 2. There you go.

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.
Dr Mel avatarDr Mel
This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django
Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.

Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.
