What Have You Played This Week?

Football Manager 09PC – Still playing, still going. It is my vice and will be for many years to come.

CrushPSP – I know when i've been beaten, and this game has me beat. It is hard, very hard. The story is not really needed, but doesn't hinder it, and the art style is ok, again not a hindrance. The key to the game is the simple mechanic of being to change a 3d landscape to something 2d. This they have got down great, but perhaps too good. I find that the difficulty rises too quickly compared to the players own skill. In some respects this game is very similar to Echochrome, and perhaps could have benefited from the focus purely on the puzzle aspect. I know i'm not going to finish this game but that doesn't worry me. It's such a unique puzzler, i'm just happy to have played it, experienced a new style of puzzle game.

Killzone 2 – PS3 – just playing online, trying to get some badges I don't have. Just got the side-arm badge, which has unlocked a nice new weapon, and about to get the air support badge, which would give me a nice new trophy. Have not got the new maps as I can't afford to get them.

Pokèmon Platinum РDS Рin training for the final gym battle. It's taking a while but i'm sure i'll do it very shortly.
