Late Night Driving

Somehow I end up attending midnight launches for games even when I have no intention of picking the game up at midnight. Got to play about 2 hours of Mario Kart Wii tonight, 4 player. I love that you can race against the CPU in multiplayer like the DS version. The wheel is pretty cool once you get used to it. There seem to be too many powerful weapons and not enough shells and bananas. Bikes are cool. Stunts are cool. Some of the new tracks are cool. I think I’m stuck on cool due to the hour, time for bed!

Short term memory

I completed Trace Memory the other day. Like this post the game is rather short.

I have not had the opportunity to play many games in the last few weeks due to relocating my habitat. I’m missing out on the new Halo 3 maps I hear. I did pick up Trace Memory cheap and had a chance to play for like… 5 minutes. So far it looks promising, and the writers did a good job of writing for a young girl. The interface is slightly non intuitive at first but I’m getting over that. More impressions to come when I actually get to do something in the game.

Lapsed Time

I’ve been playing Mass Effect pretty hardcore the last few weeks while I was not busy being sick. I’m surprised at some of the plot elements. Little bit of N+ here and there. Downloaded the Battlefield Bad Company beta and I think I’m over it already. It has good elements, and bad elements, and I’m not sure if the bad elements are things that will be fixed in the final game. Unfortunately its been a number of days since I’ve played the beta so I’m not going to go into details.

Which is one of the problems I have with writing about games. I think of things while playing but by the time I get around to being online and writing I don’ have as strong feelings anymore. I’m going to try note taking or something and ideally the quality of my writing will improve.

You Have to Burn the Rope!

You Have to Burn the Rope is simply the best new game I have played today. It is a homage to Portal. Or a parody. It’s difficult to tell the difference.
