The Summer of Japanese Strangeness (TM) comes to an end, and I start working through my backlog.
The past few weeks of this slow summer have been spent playing "Catherine" and "Infamous 2," plus a handful of downloadable games and older releases.
I've been playing a heck of a lot of "Bastion," this week's Summer of Arcade release on Xbox 360. Sadly, it's still under embargo and I can't talk about it yet. Also earning heavy time in my consoles are "Infamous 2" and "Magic: The Gathering."
I finished off "Dungeon Siege III," started "Infamous 2" and had a heck of a time playing "Trenched" with my Xbox Live buddies.
Here’s a look at what games I’ve been playing, ranked roughly from most-played to least-played.
"Magic: The Gathering" and "Shadows of the Damned" dominated my week.
It's been a while since I've done one of these, but nonreview games I've managed to sneak in include "Outland" and "Dragon Quest IX." I've also been spending time with old favorites "Bulletstorm" and "Portal 2."
Last week, I played the holy heck out of "Brink," squeezed in a little "Divinity II" and unwound with some Xbox Live Arcade games and "Culdcept Saga." Oh, and I'm still horrible at "Call of Duty."
I've been playing a lot of "Brink" in the run-up to Tuesday's release. I also managed to sneak in some "Bulletstorm" and "Divinity II," among other things.
