Games of the Week for 11/7/2010

11:00 PM on 11.07.2010 // Conrad Zimmerman

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.


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.

As I leave to go home to a meal of chili mac and possibly to watch Alien 3, I leave you with this thought: Farts.

Question: What are the Persona Classics dlc sets like for Dancing All Night? Because I'm half interested, but if the characters used for the costumes aren't the best then eh... I know Nanako has a Aegis costume iirc but that's about it.
DeNA boss says that the Nintendo mobile games are coming soon. Hurry up and reveal the damn thing so I can know if I should be excited, interested, or disappointed?

There's a tumor going around the Episode II of Zeldas is getting a remaster. Meanwhile, Link's Awakening 3D would have been appreciated much more. [img][/img]

I was playing MGSV, doing a Mine Clearing Side Op and saw a bear. I pelted it with tranq bullets, few seconds later it ran into a mine and blew up, alerting the enemies in the process. Holy shit I love this game.

Nintendo giveth, and Nintendo taketh away. Now coming next Thursday!

The wait for Dragon Quest Heroes is killing me. AR challenges in Arkham Knight do not fill the void! Not even Cat-woman's nice butt can fill the void. These 3 days will be a trial. :(

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.
