What Have You Played This Week?

Wow, where did that week go, lol. I got some gaming time in but not as much as I had hoped. News throughout the week wasn't too bad but I had to do some general life things which sucked up my time. Here's hoping next week will be less hectic and more gaming.

Football Manager 10 – PC – I've finished my first season in the premier league and just started my second. I ended up kinda mid-table at the end of the first season, I went thorugh a rocky patch in new years but a couple of good results put everything back on track and we ended the season on a good run. The second season is always difficult. You need to build on the previous season whilst keeping an eye on the funds. I've sold several fringe players or players who weren't performing and bought in players to replace them who are better. I'm happy with the depth and talent and i'm hoping for either a good cup run or a good league position.

Pokèmon Heart Gold – DS – I've not put too much time into this game. I got stuck trying to get my third gym badge so decided to level up my squad. I've been using the Pokewalker and have caught more Pokèmon through that than I currently have in the game. My squad so far is: Pigeotto, Gloom, Cyndaquil, Flaffy, and Slowpoke (a new addition cuaght via the Pokewalker).

Naruto: The Broken Bond – Xbox 360 – this is my newest rented game and its the sequel to Naruto: Rise of a Ninja, a game i've previously played via renting it. Because this game is a sequel, it is disappointing when you start and find that some of the controls have changed and your character's level has not been carried over. The change of controls is particularly frustrating as I don't think the new controls add much to the game and the previous controls were fine. I've not got to far into the game so I can't comment too much on it, but so far its a solid game moving at a decent pace. I'm looking at trying multiplayer over the next week.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadows – Demo – PS3 – I was really interested in the game due to its similarities to God Of War. The demo highlights those similarities by focusing a lot on combat. The demo quickly teaches you combat and upgrading abilities before moving on to a horse riding section. Overall the demo is short and I don't think it shows much of what Castlevania: Lords of Shadows has to offer. I'm comfortable with the combat, but level design, platforming, puzzles were all missing. The demo does show that the game does look very good and runs smooth.

??? - ??? - I've got a review copy of a game to review! Doing game reviews was soemthing I was interested in doing when I started the site, but a lack of money to buy news games delayed that. Also, as its only me working on the site, there are are just weeks when there is soo much news to cover I don't have time to review games. I'm putting in effort into getting a good review done for this game and i'm excited to see how it pans out.

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.
