What Have You Played This Week?

Well I managed to play a lot more this week. It was a mixture of frustration, relief, and happiness at finishing a couple of games. Still, i'm determined to finish 3D Dot Game Heroes as i'm soo close to the edge. To complete this task, other games may fall by the wayside next week.

Football Manager 10 – PC – I managed to finish my first season in the championship without getting relegated which is great. Towards the end I had several injuries which started making things tight with relegation but thankfully I managed to stay up. Heading into the second season in the championship, i've sold some young players who've not really made enough progress as well as a star player cause I need the money. I have a new stadium which should help things. And I look set for a mid-table finish.

3D Dot Game Heroes – PS3 – I'm stuck on the Fire Dungeon. It is by far the most difficult dungeon i've come across. The idea is that you have to hit switches in the dungeon as you progress, but you cannot die cause it sends you straight back to the begging and resets all the switches. You cannot save and start from that save as it also sends you back to the beginning of the dungeon with the switches reset. Couple this with the fact that the dungeons are also getting longer and more complex...simply put the dungeon is frustrating. But, its not soo frustrating that its distracting from the game.

Shatter – PS3 – I was looking for something else to play whilst I was frustrated with 3D Dot Game Heroes. I really like Shatter but hadn't played the game for a while. When I started I remembered I stopped cause I couldn't get past level 8. thankfully, not only did I get past level 8 on my first go, I also managed to complete the game without any trouble.

Blast Factor – PS3 – After finishing Shatter so quickly, I again looked for something different to play. I find this game difficult, I usually die near the end of the 3rd or 4th cell. It was fun to play it again after having not played it for a while, but I don't think i'll go back to it much because of its difficulty.

Transformers: War For Cybertron – PS3 – I only played a couple of games. I decided to take a break and focus on other PS3 games this week.

Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess – Mini – PS3 – I completed the PSP version last week and decided to play it on the PS3 as well. Its a shame there's no cloud saving, so my PSP save would be downloaded to the PS3 and vice versa, as i've managed to do better on the PS3 version than the PSP version.

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.

PomPom Games Announce The Playstation Mini's Version Of Astro Tripper Is On Hold And A New PS3 Game Is Coming

When PlayStation Minis were first announced, Astro Tripper was one of the games first shown. Astro Tripper is already available on the PS3 PSN and its a game I really enjoy and one I recommend. I've been eagerly awaiting news about the Minis version of Astro Tripper, but as nothing has been announced I got in touch with PomPom Games and asked about the game.

PomPom Replied that "Its on hold at the moment."

PomPom say its on hold "While we work on a new PS3 title."

PomPom Games have yet to reveal any details regarding this new Playstation 3 title, but as soon as they do i'll write a post on here.
