Games of the Week for 11/7/2010

11:00 PM on 11.07.2010 // Conrad Zimmerman
  @ConradZimmerman

And people say that American Football has some ridiculous victory dances.

Time once again for the Destructoid staff to run down the list of games they played over the last week. Can you guess all of the games we played before we have time to tell you what they were? See how many you can come up with and then read on.

Sarkar: Nothing but Rock Band 3, which is already in my top five games of the year even though I've owned it for less than a week. HAVE MY BABIES, HARMONIX.

Concelmo: I hopped back into Deadly Premonition -- about halfway through -- and it is just as surreal as ever! I have been playing for HOURS with bees flying around myself, just assuming it made no sense as most of the rest of the game. Come to find out I have bees because I haven't changed my character's clothes in a really long time. Oops. I fixed it, but now I miss the bees!

Also, more Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Aziz: I BEAT A REALLY HARD LEVEL IN SUPER MEAT BOY ALL BY MYSELF 

Chester: A bunch of Kinect games (including Dance Central with my mother-in-law), along with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Blood Drive, and FlingSmash.

Razak: Bond, James Bond.

Bennett, C.: I got the new Atelier Rorona game for PS3, and I've never played the series so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I like it a lot so far!

Sterling: Mostly Fist of the North Star still, but I've also been playing The Sims 3 on console for review (spoiler: get the PC version). Also been trying to get into Dynasty Warriors Online, but I'm not liking some of the shit they decided to do. Ten minute time limits are absurd.

Holmes: Played some Epic Mickey. Weird game. All of the stuff that I was worried they'd get wrong, they got right, but a few of the things that I assumed no developer would mess up in this day and age, they messed up. Still, the game really made me feel something. I'm really excited to play more. 

Also played about eight hours of Super Meat Boy for a charity live stream. Getting through the I Wanna Be the Guy levels again was pure masochism, but I managed to do it. Also played more Pokemon White, Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-land MayhemBit.Trip BEAT, CORE, VOID, RUNNER, and FATE.

Devore: Almost entirely Fallout: New Vegas this week, plus a few short bursts of Super Meat Boy (80 bandages GET!). I finished the main storyline twice: the first time with Mr. House, and the second with Yes Man. They were virtually identical in terms of missions, in case anyone was wondering. I plan to go back and do the NCR and Caesar's Legion (bleh) missions at some point, but for now, I'm working on getting the 10,000 melee damage challenge. The power fist is way more fun than I remember.

Zimmerman: I spent a good chunk of my week on the road, so I took the PSP along for a little What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! 2 and Harvest Moon: Innocent Life. Beyond that, I've played a touch of Super Meat Boy and am a good chunk into the "Undead Nightmare" DLC for Red Dead Redemption.

Ross: Nothing but Dragon Age. I just finished Origins about 45 min ago, and now I'm moving onto Awakenings. Once that's done, I'm gonna grab the "Witch Hunt" DLC so I can be fully ready for Dragon Age 2 in March.

Such a good game.

While fighting a Lucas, I did Bayo's up taunt, then I remembered what happened to Lucas's Mom in Mother 3. Now I feel bad.

Anyone played Digimon Cyber Sleuth yet? I'm hearing great things about it and strongly considering picking it up. Thoughts?

São Paulo's samba schools parade is about to start on tv! It is not as good as the one from Rio de Janeiro, but still pretty good and nice to watch. Also, there is some ice cold beer waiting for me and my girl. Yeah!

After a long struggle, I seem to have landed in a dream job. It's very exciting and nerve wracking, but I'm happy with where I ended up.

Got myself a job for the summer! Now celebrating with some freshly bought Gravity Rush.

REMEMBER: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is on PS+ for PS3! For PS3/PS4 owners like me who have barely used their PS3's since the PS4, remember that Sony still supports it!

So uh... I didn't know Nordic was handing out free upgrades of Darksiders 2 Dethinitive Edition for us owners of the original game + all DLC on PC. I wonder if it's even worth installing compared to the original release.

Change the text to Destructoid. Make the alien Mr. Destructoid. And make the skulls either just Jonathan Holmes, or all staff. [img]http://www.destructoid.com/ul/339243-/xcom2box-noscale.jpg[/img] We can make it into an unofficial shirt if it rocks?

Can any California based Dtoiders confirm/deny how accurate American Truck Simulator is, scenery wise? Apart from the total lack of pedestrians, that is.As a Brit I remember playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and not recognising a damn thing about Manchester.

I changed my avatar. You want to sue me? My lawyers are ready to trademark suing me so you have to pay me first.

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -
