What Have You Played This Week?

I tried to play a lot this week, but a couple of nights not feeling to good put an end to that, and when the Transformers: War For Cybertron double XP weekend started I just seem to be busy with other things. In all i've not played a lot this week, which is a shame as I had high hopes I would.

Football Manager 10 – PC – My season in the Championship with Havant & Waterlooville is going fine. I'm sure I won't get relegated but its looking very apparent that I won't finish higher than mid-table.

3D Dot Game Heroes – PS3 – I got a bit further into the game and can now say that its getting hard. The charm of the graphics has not worn off and i'm thinking that it won't. Traversing the world is fairly easy and so far its not been to hard to work out how to get from 1 place to another. I do recommend buying some wind wings as the world is large and you can use just 1 to go from either an inn or dungeon to another. Trophies for the game, so far, appear to be done right. I'm earning them as the game progress very well, but there are several hidden ones. Its fun and enjoyable so far, but i'm not too sure how long that'll last as the difficulty appears to be ramping up with every dungeon.

Transformers: War For Cybertron – PS3 – just about to hit level 25 with a character and earn an trophy. I've tried to take advantage of the double XP weekend, but it's not quite gone as I planned. I'll return to the single player and pick up the last few trophies I missed the first time round once i've earned more multiplayer trophies. My big issue with the game is that since the DLC came out, the game doesn’t look for games without DLC. The multiplayer search function does not differentiate between those who bought the DLC and those who haven't, so many times i've tried to join a game, it's kicked me out back to the main menu. This is very frustrating as it appears a fair few people bought the DLC and I haven't.

Did you manage to play more games than I have over the week, or do you have any comments on my experiences or questions about the games i've played? If you do, feel free to add them in the comments section.
