What Have You Played This Week?

I stuck to my goal in playing more games and not only did I play more I also managed to play them for longer. Lets hope I can do the same next week.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – PS3 – I put some time into multiplayer to see if the lag issues are widespread, and to get some trophies. Personally it I found it isn't that bad and the online fights can be really great to play and watch. I'm not the best online but because of the games simple controls I can still get in a few punches and be engaged in the fight. I also played some more single player to finish off the side quests after the game has ended.

Star Trek Online – Demo – PC – I was in the beta for this game but hadn't returned since then. I was interested to see how it was doing and whether it would be worth subscribing to it. So far it plays well and the beta experience has come in handy. Some things have changed, for the better, and i'm starting to get in to it. I'll keep playing as its a 30 day demo before I decide whether to subscribe.

Who's That Flying – Minis – PSP – I'm a big fan of Mediatonics Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess and I was eagerly awaiting this games release. It has the same great artstyle and use of colours as their first game and the game is nice and simple to play. But much like the first game, its easy to play but hard to master. The story is already longer in this game and it has some great jokes and powerups which make me chuckle. I've not played many Mini's, but this is so far the best i've played and well worth getting.

Darksiders – PS3 - this is my newest rented game. I'm only a few hours in but i'm enjoying myself a lot. The gameplay is nice and simple, the graphics look great, and the story is interesting and I want to see what happens. I have only 1 complaint so far in the game and that's blocking and rushing are the same button and i'm finding that blocking isn't working great, but that could be down to my skill.

Angry Birds – Android – i've played some Android games before and not put them on here. The reason I mention Angry Birds is that it works soo well. I'm lucky in that my Hero is able to keep up with the game fine and the play is soo simple and soo much fun. The graphics are good and the look of the birds fits very well. I do recommend people with Android phones give this a is free after all.

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.
