What have I’ve been playing…

Every summer plenty of developers and stores have sales, so as every summer I end up getting some new games. Even when I’m away for vacation I’ll buy games. This time I needed help from a friend to buy Magicka Complete Pack from Steam. And I’m glad I took the trouble to contact my good friend. Magicka is one of the best games I’ve played this year! If your only getting one game this year, Magicka should probably be it. So obviously I’ve played a lot of Magicka, but I haven’t tried solo play yet. Only with my friend, but it was hilarious. The first hour went to practicing the spells and not killing each other. It’s hard when you can make so much funny spells.

I also got my hands on Infamous 2 (birthday gift), which is a great sequel to  Infamous. The graphic is very nice and polished. The game play is even better and you have new and more moves/action to perform. Sadly no flying mode, but where getting there. Play.com also had a sale so ended up getting Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom. A beautiful game which looks a bit like Shadow of the Colossus. The music is also very nice. It’s not a very long game. I completed it yesterday and it took my around thirteen hours, and I did some collection of chest and such. So I guess a quick run would go for around ten. Still a few hours longer then what Mirror’s Edge take to complete (around seven if I remember correctly).

That’s not all the games I got this summer. I bought Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS2) and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS). I thought the DS game was the one who came to the PSP, but that was Birth by Sleep. So guess I need to get that one too. I’ve always wanted to try out the Kingdom Hearts series, as I’ve heard a lot about it. So instead of starting on number two I ended up buying Kingdom Hearts (the first) from Ebay. So wanting for that to arrive in the mail.  I also bought some old Xbox 360 games which where on sale. Pure which I’ve had and played before, Rainbow Six Vegas, Kinect Adventure and Guitar Hero 5. As I don’t own a Kinect myself I had to borrow one from my friend to try out Kinect Adventure. Sadly Kinect doesn’t really work that well in my living room since my couch is to big to be moved (or my room is to small, you can decide).

Rainbow Six Vegas came out in 2006 and the years haven’t been good to it, but the game play works really well. So when I’m done with it I’ll definitely buy the sequel. Pure is still cool and it still lacks the split screen which would make this game extremely fun to play. The same problem as the newer Nail’d. No split-screen really makes a game go from must have to, get when I find it real cheap.

Last but not least I bought Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and Rollercoaster Tycoon from GoodOldGames.com. Haven’t had time to try them out yet, but played both of them before so I know what I get. Rollercoaster Tycon is maybe the best Tycoon game ever made (it’s maybe even beating Transport Tycoon Deluxe).

That’s most of the game I’ve tried and bought the last couple of weeks. It’s nice with a summer vacation. I’m also waiting for Fear 2 coming in the mail. There where a sale on CDon.com and I had a coupon, so I got it for free. Can’t beat that!

Free Comic Book Day

Today is Free Comic Book Day and I’ve been to my local comic book store to get me some free comics. Picked up a Green Lantern, Avatar, Super Dinosaur, Simpsons and Jake The Dreaming. Only read the Simpsons yet, and it was funny. Jake The Dreaming looks promising with the cool drawings. I also got two free Heroclix figures, War Machine and Green Lantern. Awesome! After that I went to Gamestop and I bought six PS2 games, need to save up for a used PS2 now. Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty with bonus DVD, Soul Calibur 2, Timesplitter 2, Tony Hawk 3, Tony Hawk 4, and Twisted Metal: Black. 3 for the price of 2 is nice!

On the way back home I took some graffiti pictures which I’ll upload to Flickr later today.

Blog vacation

As most vacation, and this is not an exception. I end up neglecting my blog. Not because I want to, but I don’t feel like sitting down and writing something. It’s okey to post some pictures and videos now and then, but I use extra time to do it. If you check when I uploaded my pictures to Flickr and when I post it here, there is some hours in between. So that was my little excuse for not posting that much.

Since I’m not posting much, you’ve missed out a bit. As my last serious post was 19th of June about a Munny competition and a little update about me going on vacation and getting some flowers. The major things are that I bought myself a PS3 and finally a PS2, I’ve had a stand at Desucon with my company, and some more vacation. Continue reading Blog vacation
