Press Start: What We Played for Week 31

Welcome fanatics to Press Start! This is a weekly editorial that dives into what we here at The Game Fanatics have been playing. No spoilers on the newer games that we’re playing but we will give you a quick insight on how good or bad it is. Games will range from retro to new, casual to FPS, we play it all!


Finished replaying Max Payne 3, and of course also had Civ V and NBA 2K13 on tap as well. New this weekend, I started playing Saints Row IV, yes, I can say that, not much else though, aside from the fact that it is AWESOME.


I haven’t been playing much since I’ve been editing my book. As much as I want to play video games, deadlines come first. When I do squeeze in the time to play, I always try to get some SWTOR in. I’ve been playing Bejeweled 3 again to help me fall asleep. I still have two achievements to get in that game. I downloaded Crackdown since it is free this month for XBL gold members. Glad that my old saved game is still on my harddrive. Nothing like randomly blowing up stuff!


I finally beat Project X Zone! I logged in more hours into that game than I thought I would, but I still enjoyed it. Now I’m back to playing EarthBound when I have time.



Gonna start up Shin Megami Tensei IV and enjoy that free $30 at the eShop for owning that and Fire Emblem: Awakening.


With no PlayStation I have turned to my Vita and my PC. I have jumped into Neverwinter which is quite fun, but not impressive looking, can’t complain because it is pretty solid for a F2P MMORPG. On my Vita I have been playing Persona 4 Golden and await my copy of Dragons Crown which I have heard is amazing!
