What We Played | July 9 – 15

This is a weekly segment where we share what games we are currently playing for our readers to get to know us a bit better. Said games can range from retro to current and from casual to FPS games. If we’re playing it, we’ll share it. Please feel free to comment with what you’re playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.

Greg: I finished my Mass Effect Trilogy run, all three games back to back to back. So good. I do appreciate the extended ending of 3. So much fun, though. Highly recommended.

Luis: I’ve been messing about and have been all over the place as of late. Still on my journey to platinum Uncharted 3 and have done quite a bit of mobile gaming. Picked up Amazing Alex from the folks over at Rovio who developed Angry Birds. It’s a fun chain reaction game where the goal is to collect stars during the chain reaction. Some Plants Vs. Zombies among other games were played. The highlight of the week had to be The Sims 3. Matt and another friend came over my house and we created a sim who had one mission. His goal was to sleep with every female sim (of age) in The Sims 3. Also never get a job and somehow survive. So far he’s got a baby sim (or two) and he’s slept with the maid! Oh, and a few thousand bucks somehow.

Matthew: Fibble HD for iOS. It’s a cool little game where you use physicals to guide a little rolling ball-creature to a goal point while attempting to collect as many gold coins and stars as possible. It’s the first game to use the cryengine on iOS and features real time cinematics. It works on iPhone and iPad.

Jen: On the casual gaming side of things, I played some Bejeweled 3 and Hexic HD. I mainly played them both to try to fall asleep. Seeing footage on Transformers Fall of Cybertron, I got the urge to play War of Cybertron again. Its still a lot of fun and I can’t wait to play the sequel. Also played the usual, SWTOR.

Ben: This week was still all about Dragon’s Dogma. It’s pretty much an open world Monster Hunter game, and that’s a fantastic thing. I’ve been able to avoid the tempting Steam sale in part because of its chimera killing goodness.

Chris: Been splitting time between Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Two completely different fighting titles but fun ways to keep the competitive juices flowing if only for a few minutes or longer chunks of time. Also started a campaign in one my favorite RPGs ever, in the beginning stages of Konami‘s Suikoden, such a deep RPG with a huge cast of characters and a fun story.

Jeff: With The Dark Knight Rises coming very soon, my week has been all about films, but that doesn’t mean that I couldn’t find a few hours for Metroid Prime 3. I’ve also been playing Kings Corners, a solitaire variant available for free on the App Store.
