Games of the Week for 11/7/2010

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.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!

Mr. Cordoba knows a lot about CSS, so I asked him to give us a touch-up job. Here's an early sneak peek at the next big Dtoid update: Drop us a note in the comments! [url]http://www.raulcordoba.com/dtoid/[/url]

I'll never get how making an inanimate object or a plant look like an animal or just alive somehow is considered more "out of ideas" than just an animal being an animal. That seems more like the opposite of being "out of ideas" to me.

I don't hate spiders because they look weird and scary, but because they put their webs in places I commonly walk through. It gets all over my face and hair and getting it out makes me look crazy to everyone else.
