What Have You Played This Week?

Another week where I had hopes of playing more than I managed. Its a shame i'm not playing more than I do, but with the amount of work I have to put into the site, I don't leave myself a lot of spare time to put much gaming in.

Football Manager 10 – PC – My season in the Championship with Havant & Waterlooville is going fine. I'm past Christmas now and into the end of season. I still think I won't get relegated and a mi-table position should be achievable.

3D Dot Game Heroes – PS3 – The third dungeon is done and i've already found the forth dungeon. Its safe to say the game is hard, but its not taken away any fun. There is a fair amount of try and die in not just getting through a dungeon but also trying to navigate the landscape. I can see and understand if and why people would find this annoying, but for me i'm getting further each time, i'm not failing at the same point. What's also fun is that I have the bestiality, which means I have a book to attack enemies with to put them in the book. From this I can see i'll need to battle the bosses again, but with the improvements you can do to swords and the fact you know what to do, it shouldn't be that difficult.

Transformers: War For Cybertron – PS3 – Still playing, trying to get some multiplayer trophies, but without a double XP weekend it will take some time. Also, still annoyed with the lack of separation between those trying to game with and without the DLC maps.

Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess – Mini – PSP – I've finished the games story mode, and whilst it is very short, it is still fun. There is a nice twist at the end, the animation is great and so is the script. There is a Score Attack mode and trophies still to get in the game and I can see myself playing it a few times as yet. If your interested in trying out a Minis, this has everything you'd expect from a Mini and more.

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.
