Games of the Week for 12/5/2010: Riding elephants edition


11:00 PM on 12.05.2010



Mind not that there exists such a thing as a "behind-the-scenes" interview for a commercial. If that has to be a thing, let them all have Conan O'Brien in them.

We played games at Destructoid during the last week and we're itching to tell you all about it. Keep reading and you'll find out what the best console audio visualizer is. The answer may surprise you.

Holmes: I played Goldeneye on the Wii and I didn't hate it. Also played Canabalt, Meat Boy, Cave Story DSiWare, Pokemon White, all the Bit.Trip games, and some other stuff that I liked. 

Oh, and Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents fans, watch out for Michael Jackson on the DS. It's a trap. 

Ross: I've been playing Majin: The Forsaken Kingdom, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Angry Birds: Seasons (SO GOOD). I also just started playing WoW again, since Cataclysm showed up at my door with a time card...

Concelmo: Almost nothing but The Sly Collection. Love those games so much. BENTLEY! Playing this collection is making me hope for a similar high-def remake of the three Jak games on the PlayStation 3. That announcement may make me lost my mind.

Also a little Prototype for the Xbox 360 -- never got a round to playing it with it was released all those years ago. I like it so far, even though I have trouble controlling sometimes.

Oh, and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn for review! So pretty!

Chester: Been playing some CrimeCraft, which is actually pretty fun for a free-to-play third-person shooter MMO. Also played the PSN game Shatter for the first time, as it's free for PlayStation Plus subscribers; I know I'm late to the party, but this game is pretty incredible. Also played a Cho Aniki game for the first time, thanks to a download code Dale gave me, and I have no idea what the fuck is going on. Oh, and: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time HD and Donkey Kong Country Returns with the wife. 

Also dabbled in Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 -- previews of both coming this week!

Concelmo: OMG SHATTER! That's one of my favorite games EVER!

Sarkar: I didn't play any games this week, but I did turn on my Xbox 360 last night in order to plug in my iPod and listen to A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, the greatest holiday album of all time. That's when I discovered one more (admittedly minor) thing that the PS3 has over the 360: pretty much all of the 360's music visualizers are low-res garbage that looks like it was put together by some stoned college students.

Chester: Considering only stoned college kids are probably staring at a visualizer while their music plays, I don't see the problem.

Bennett, H.: I've been playing travel to 'Scotland with your Boyfriend to help him move all his stuff, get snowed in, spend 9 hours driving what should take 20 minutes, go 26 hours without food or drink and then spend the night on the floor of a community centre with 670 other people - 11/10. Basically me and my boyfriend got a glimpse of life when the zombie apocalypse happens, let me tell you that it is pretty bleak. However in other news I did start playing Venetica and now I'm sat here watching the boyfriend play Break Down on the Xbox while I write the Destructoid.com Christmas Gift Guide. 

Holmes: I'm glad you survived, Ms. Bennett!

Also, the Sega Saturn had the best visualizer of all time:

Long: I've been playing all the games I bought on Steam last week. Super Meat Boy, Bit.Trip BEAT, then some filler stuff that came in the Indie Puzzle Pack - Cogs and Puzzle Dimension. Super Meat Boy is super hard on Steam, I don't recommend it.

On the Wii, I've been trying to work my way through the Bit.Trip games. Tried out Core, Runner, and Void. Beat is still my favorite by far.

Bennett, C.: So into Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. GHOST TRAIN!

Also, still loving Zuma Blitz, and played a bit of CityVille (but I have no idea why).

Devore: Now that I have a new computer, I can finally play Minecraft in full-screen mode. I played other stuff, but everything pales in comparison to that. Clearly.

Razak: I started and beat Limbo, which I am now totally in love with. Absolutely amazing puzzle pieces in it. Going to jump into Enslaved tonight. Hoping that goes good as well.

Sterling: December is a slow month for a reviews editor so I am replaying some old games, chiefly Lost Odyssey and Killzone 2. Still damn good fun.

I also bought Postal 2 from GOG. I can't say it was my greatest purchasing decision.

Bennett, C.: Replaying Lost Odyssey sounds grand. I might do that myself.

Sterling: You won't regret it. Jansen is still a fucking pimp.

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
