It’s been awhile since my last gaming post; I felt like I was playing Burnout Paradise a year ago! But that’s probably because I’ve burned through a couple of games since then.
I bought TMNT the same time as Burnout, not because I liked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but because it was only $3 AND it’s an easy 1000 gamerscore. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a horrible game! It’s kind of like a Spider-man game because it’s a platformer and you have some weird stick-to-wall powers. I wouldn’t recommend it, but I had a fun time getting my +1000gs.
Then I started playing Mass Effect. This was one of the RPGs that I wanted to play on the Xbox360, and I finally saw it on sale for $9 at EB! It’s a bit strange; it’s role-playing, discovery and a FPS. But I when I’m playing one of the modes, I would want to play another one. I think it would be better if there was more action, and less talking/discovery. The FPS aspect is also really easy (or maybe because my character is sufficiently leveled now).
Next I moved on to the DS. The game I wanted to play was Rhythm Heaven, which is a Warioware type game, where all the mini-games are based on rhythm. This game is fun, except it’s incredibly difficult. I had problems with the first level, and now, not even 33% through the game, I’m stuck. Here’s Beyonce playing some Rhythm Heaven.
Now, I’m playing Ninjatown, which is basically just tower defense except you have ninja’s instead of towers. That’s pretty much it, but it’s really fun!
