What Have You Played This Week?

That was a busy week. GamesCom came out of know where and was soo news heavy. Couple this with all the new press sites i'm a member of...lets just say I rarely had a moment to play games. I decided to take the weekend off, and thankfully it looks like the rest of the industry did, and played as many games as I could.

Football Manager 10 – PC – things are going better in the championship than they did in my first season. I think it'll be a comfortable mid-table finish. I'll look to get some players in at Christmas that can be built up for a promotion challenge next year.

3D Dot Game Heroes – PS3 – Still stuck on the fire dungeon, but I didn't get much play in. the problem is its soo big and relies much more on magic than other dungeons, that there is a point where I run out of life or health. The main culprit is a monster that drains your health, leaving 1 bar, and takes all your magic. I just keep running in to them. But the more I try, the more I'm learning and the more i'm better prepared. It has reached a point where I want to get it finished just so I can rent a new game.

Transformers: War For Cybertron – PS3 – I finally completed the multiplayer mode this week, mostly thanks to the 4x XP weekend. So all my characters are level 25 and i've turned on Prime Mode. it was nice to see a larger community playing the game this weekend, but it did seem to increase connection issues. I'll dip into the single player throughout the week and get the missing trophies.

Little Big Planet – PS3 – I played a few community levels. I hadn't played since the Water patch was added so it was fun discovering all the ways water is being used. Playing this makes me want little Big Planet 2 a lot.

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.
