The last time I made a large Game Journal post, I was playing Sonic Generations, Ocarina of Time 3D, inFamous 2, and World of Warcraft. I was also thinking about starting Gears of War 3, Ivy the Kiwi?, Sonic Colors, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Epic Mickey, and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland.
* * * Playing * * *
World of Warcraft
Of course, I’m still playing World of Warcraft. I have a separate blog to talk about that, but we’re now 5/8 in Dragon Soul.
Mario Kart 7
Mario Kart’s always been one of my favorite series, and 7 is no let down. As usual, there’s a Mirror mode unlocked after 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc. I’m working on it now.
I’m so close to that damn platinum trophy! I really need to put some more time in it!
I actually just started playing this today, but I bought it for gem for Christmas. We’re playing through the game in co-op! Unfortunately, after every play session, we have to login as the other person and start the game again to sync trophies to both accounts. So much work. Fun game though, and I’m glad she’s enjoying it!
Plants vs. Zomibes
More content was added to the iOS version, so I’m playing that off and on a bit as well as the PC version ocassionally.
Super Mario 3D Land
I stopped playing this because of Pilotwings and Mario Kart, but I’ll hopefully get back to it soon. It’s amazingly excellent. Great level design. Every element is there for a reason, and when I die, it’s my fault. Perfect. Wonderful use of 3D as well.
Game Dev Story
I started playing this again just a little bit. I’d like to get a perfectly reviewed game.
* * * Finished * * *
I played this a lot of while! Alex let me borrow it, and it’s pretty fun. I didn’t manage to get perfects on everything, which keeps me from unlocking some bonus missions, but I did beat the main game!
I finished this and loved it. Thankfully Sonic Team didn’t make it super long by adding too much worthless content.
* * * Gave Up * * *
Zeno Clash is a weird first-person fighting game with a really bizarre story. I got stuck for a little bit, put it down, and never came back. I might be done with it. Maybe I’ll just switch it to easy mode and plow through it.
* * * Thinking About Playing* * *
Grand Theft Auto
I don’t even know which one I’d like to play. I suppose I’d like to finish the first one, but it crashes when I alt-tab. I have the third on Android that I could play, but I’m not sure how much time I’d want to devote to an Android port. What if I get stuck later because I lack good controls? Of course, I have all the pre-4 games on Steam as well.
Lots to choose from after we finsh LBP2. Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland come to mind.
Gears of War 3
Ivy the Kiwi?
The Binding of Isaac
Cthulhu Saves the World
The Old Republic…?
