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.
Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion is all well and good, but here's a look at a few great downloadable games that can hold their own against the format's very best.
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.
With "Duke Nukem Forever," "Alice: Madness Returns" and "Child of Eden" all hitting this week, we're getting three sequels to games that are more than 9 years old. I'm only recommending two of those sequels, however.
