Hey there, About.com visitors! It's been a few weeks during my hectic and work-filled May, but I'm back with a few new games I've been hungrily devouring. For starters, Kirby: Triple Deluxe has been taking up most of my spare time. It's an excellent new Kirby adventure for the Nintendo 3DS and one of the most addictive Kirby outings I've seen in some time. There's a satisfying challenge to finding all of the hidden Sun Stones in each level, and though I find myself having to journey back and forth to collect additional stones so I can just finish off the final boss of each area. I also enjoy collecting the hidden keychains, which are super cute. I guess I can't quieten my inner trinket fan.
What games have you been playing? There's a long weekend coming up, so let us know what you're going to be playing and what your plans are! Me? I'm going to get into Wolfenstein: The New Order for some Nazi-killing action.
Hello once again, and welcome to the most recent installment of WAYP! I know, I know. It's a different day and all, but I figured an early post might be well-received!
I missed last week, as I traveled out of state on vacation to see one of my favorite bands in Chicago, but now I'm back with a vengeance. During my trip I picked up a Game Boy Advance SP, but not just any old model. I picked up the NES edition complete in its original box. It's now the crown jewel of my portable gaming collection, so look for more pieces regarding portable gaming and handhelds in the near future as I go back through some of the greats that I missed during the GBA's heyday.
As far as what I've been playing, I've been hard at work reviewing Bound By Flame, which releases tomorrow and is worth picking up if you're into Western fantasy RPGs and some good old stat-grinding. I've also been into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Is anyone else playing on PS4?
As an aside, I've been putting up a guide for Dark Souls II in preparation for a playthrough. If you're currently wading through it right now, why not give it a look and let me know what you think?
That's all for this week, space cats! Come back next week for your regularly-scheduled WAYP, which will resume its Friday posting shortly.
We're quickly nearing the end of April, and the closer we get to May the closer we get to summer. What better time to start a new blog series for the upcoming Fridays we're all about to (hopefully) enjoy? Every Friday I'll be asking what video games you guys are playing and sharing a little bit about what I've been up to. Don't be shy. I don't want to end up being the only person talking around here!
Currently, I'm enjoying a few embargoed games for review, but I've been playing Goat Simulator in my free time. It's totally out there, but then bizarre, quirky games are kind of my thing. The game's exactly what the title implies: it's a goat simulator. Lick things, kick cars, headbutt unsuspecting victims, climb ladders, you know -- all that kind of stuff. I've completed several challenges, but what I really want to do is unlock the giraffe. Because nothing looks more ridiculous than a giraffe sidling up a ladder to a diving board. It's good stuff, and I recommend it.
A lot of people have been waiting for Diablo III to be released, it somehow slipped under my radar when it did drop on the 15th. Most critics are giving the game decent press, but what are the actual gamers saying? Was it worth the wait, or perhaps more importantly, is it worth your time and money? I'd place a bet that most fans of the series are fairly happy with the game's results. But don't let me put words into your mouth, that's what the comments section is for, located just below.
Played the game? Drop-ship a comment of your own and let the rest of us know if we should pony up the dough, or hold off. By the way, there don't appear to be any cheat codes for the game, but hints and tips are also welcomed.
100,000 Dollar Pyramid, Wheel Of Fortune, Press Your Luck, Who wants to be a Millionaire, and Who's smarter than a Fifth Grader plus many more.
What is going on? Who really needs a TV anymore? These games are fun and addicting and they make you remember the games and bring back good memories.
