With all of the medical stuff that has been going on of late, doing a review of Pokémon has taken a backseat. On the bright side, actually playing Pokemon has come to the forefront. Yet here I am, months after launch and I am still playing the game pretty hardcore. Not bad for $34.95. Continue reading
When I first heard of the latest Sims 3 expansion, I was fairly excited. An expansion that would allow players to finally get in the meat of their Sims jobs and allow them to take part and have more direct control. Included with it were several new jobs to really take advantage of the new system. What could go wrong?
In my downtime between Travian servers, I have been playing a couple of casual browser based games to fill the time. One of these was the previously mentioned Nile Online, another is Travians. As many may or may not remember, I previously gave Travians a try and then gave up on it due to general boredom. Continue reading
Now that aus1 is done in Travian, I have needed something to do with my time. In particular, I’ve needed something to do with my time at work, and so I started looking around for something to do. One of my former duals in Travian suggested that I give another browser-based strategy game, called Nile Online, a chance so sure enough, I decided to give it a try.
Lately I’ve been getting back into to ToonTown for some reason. I know I know it is a kids game. Really that has never bothered me though. I’ve always looked for top quality games regardless of who the game is targeted at. To me, if the game is fun it is worth playing. And honestly, ToonTown is fun and thus it is worth playing. Well at least for short bursts it is. It is kind of like City of Heroes where the repetitiveness comes up really quickly in the game.
I bought Sims 3 a few weeks ago, and though I continue to find new things in it every time I play, I felt that I know the game well enough to be bale to review it honestly. Sims 3 is actually kind of a difficult review. I mean, like the other Sims games, it is solid, there isn’t a lot that they ever really needed to improve on and as such Sims 3 seems very much like Sims 2. So much so you wonder for awhile why it is that we end up with a sequal to a game that already is pretty solid in its own right. Of course the main reason to do this is to provide new expansions and thus get more money without having to actually think up new ideas.
A few months ago, I found out that you can use Guitar Hero 4 instruments for Rock Band 2. I hadn’t thought this was possible previously because it wasn’t with Rock Band 1, and I just kind of assumed it would be the same. This knowledge instantly put Rock Band 2 on my wish list and I got it for my Birthday, much to my delight.
About a month ago, shortly I got my tax refund, my roommate and I were walking through our local Target and we spontaneously decided to buy the latest edition of Guitar Hero. We were waiting and waiting and waiting to get it through Activision since she works for one of their studios and we could get a discount, but unfortunately we had grown tired of waiting and decided to splurge. So that day we walked home with a complete band kit of Guitar Hero: World Tour. Well I guess the tax refund I got did make me consume more than usual this one time.
For Christmas this year, I got Personal Trainer: Cooking from my best friend. It was a completely unexpected gift as I hadn’t really talked about it much, I mean I had mentioned it but I never asked for it or anything. I would have never bought it on my own, but I did have a desire to use it. So in essence this was a fairly good gift. After a few months, we’ve tried a few of the recipes and so I thought I’d give it a quick review to tell everyone what I thought about it.
I’ve been excited about a brand new version of Animal Crossing for a real console for a very long. Ever since I had my hands on the original gamecube version years ago. After all, my mind thought, this is essentially an N64 game with a few additional house items and features, I wonder what a gamecube version would look like? Now we sit with a Wii version on our doorstep, after a DS version completely eclipsed the original. Did Nintendo live up to what could have been with a full Wii version of the game?
