TGIF Gaming Wrap-up for 3/23/2011

This is a new idea I had; it’ll probably be of most interest to me over time, but who knows? The plan is to do one of these every Friday.

Purchases This Week
I picked up 4 new games this week, three of them due to sales.

Amazon had a $5 BOGO deal on Ubisoft PC titles last weekend so I got The Settlers: Rise of an Empire Gold Edition and Call of Juarez 2: Bound in Blood both for $5.

Steam had a daily deal for Spellforce 2: Gold Edition for $3.74 so I snagged that.

Finally, I bought Ys: The Oath of Felghana from Steam for full price ($14.99) just to send a message to the developer to please keep localizing these kinds of titles for PC!

Played This Week
Minecraft snuck up and sunk it’s fangs back into me this week due to the discovery of Minefold which I wrote about at ITworld. It was my most-played game this week, but I wasn’t tracking in on Rapt over the weekend. I’m guessing I spent 10 hours playing it, at least.

I finished Journey earlier this week, and wrote about it here at Dragonchasers.

I’ve been spending my lunch hours playing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, a PSP game I’m playing on the Vita. I guess I’ve squeezed in 3 hours or so on that. Still very early in the game but I’m really enjoying this old-school turn-based RPG a lot.

I also put 3 hours into Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, an hour into Vessel and half an hour into Star Trek Online. [Sadly, once again my brain has emptied of any and all knowledge of how to play STO.]

Plans For The Week To Come
At this point my ‘playlist’ is way too long. I need to start finishing some games before I start any new ones. But here’re the games in rotation at the moment:

  • SWTOR (still have some time left in my sub)
  • Star Trek Online
  • Minecraft
  • KOA:Reckoning
  • Vessel
  • The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky
  • Mass Effect 1
  • Uncharted: The Golden Abyss

Yeah, clearly I’m trying to play WAY too many games at once!
