QTE Tweets Of The Week

This top 10 shows the most clicked tweets from my News in brief Twitter stream. Its a shame to not have any stories from QTE Gamers make it into the top 10 most clicked news stories, but this weeks top 10 is full of stories that got a lot of attention. The runaway leader was the number 1 story, comfortably ahead of any other story this week. The real surprise was the number 5 story as all the other entries in the top 10 are big hitters and were expected.

What Have You Played This Week?

This weekend turned into another where I had high hopes of playing lots of games, but ended up playing very few. I'll be honest and say one of the reasons i've been playing less is because i've started watching a new Anime, Bleach, whilst I wait for the Naruto Shippuden Filler to end.

Flight Control HD – PS3 – i've now played through all the maps in the game. Each one offers a unique challenge and they are certainly fun to play. The music in the game is very average but thankfully you are able to play your own music. I also recommend using the fast forward button in the early parts of the levels as they should be fairly manageable.

Naruto: Broken Bonds – Xbox 360 – this is the game i'm currently renting, but it has taken me several weeks to get through it. I'm nearly done with the story mode, kinda finishing the last few achievements in the game, powering up fighters before I go to finish it.

Super Meat Boy – Demo – Xbox 360 – Everyone have been talking about this game and saying how great it is. I wanted to try it out as I wasn't too sure. Its fair to say that even in the demo the game is hard. I haven't completed the demo, but I feel i've played enough to know its not something i'll buy. Yes the gameplay is solid, but its not quite my kinda game. Some frustrating games can be fun, but I got bored on some levels trying and trying again.

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.
