What We Played for Week Ending February 5

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 your playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.

Jen: I’ve been busy with Final Fantasy 13-2 and SWTOR for this past week. My nephew just hit level 50 so I really need to play catch up.

Nicholas: Been playing some FIFA 12 and the Twisted Metal demo. I forgot how much I love those games.

John: I’ve been playing a number of games lately; Uncharted 3, Halo 3, Halo: Reach, MW3, and Shadow Of The Colossus. I picked up a 360 for my birthday, so I’ve been pretty excited about getting back into the Halo franchise. Reach was awesome, and I’m definitely digging the story line in Uncharted 3 and MW3. Shadow Of The Colossus has always been a huge favorite of mine, so I downloaded it from the PSN…oh, wait… it’s called the Sony Entertainment Something Something now right?

William: I’ve been playing Amy, then SWTOR, and League of Legends. I’m not usually one for survival horror, so Amy is a bit of a shift for me.

Ben: I got a 3DS this past week in preparation for Resident Evil: Revelations, so I’ve been playing the previous RE game on the system, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. I’m a huge fan of the mercenaries minigame that has been in several RE games and this is a great adaptation of it. Not for everyone but I’m enjoying it. Other than that, I finally started playing Dues Ex: Human Revolution and it is damn good. I’m blown away at how much I’m enjoying it. I love stealth games, rpgs, and things that are in the future so this is almost perfect. I only wish I had played it sooner.

Jasdeep: This week I’ve mainly been playing older titles, with some holding up far better than others. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection proves that unique design and wild ambition can help make a series timeless, while Unreal Tournament 3 demonstrates that lightning-fast FPS gameplay rarely loses its appeal. On the flipside however, Hydrophobia: Prophecy serves as a shining example of how a game can over-reach itself in terms of content and scope. It tries to pack the mechanical variety and narrative depth of a full $60 retail title into a 3 hour PSN game, therefore resulting in an ultimately fragile experience. Luckily, I didn’t have to pay anything for it, thanks PlayStation Plus.
