Playing – Plants vs Zombies (Windows Phone 7)
Someone at PopCap needs to write me a letter. In this letter, they need to explain why I can’t stop playing this game? Seriously! The first time I played it was on the PC. I beat it there. Then, I played it on the Xbox. Again, I beat it there. Then, I got it for my phone, and guess what? Yep, beat it again. Why is it – by my best guess – I have finished the campaign more than twenty times? Also explain to me why I have started looking into getting it for the Vita? If you found a way to install this game on my refrigerator, I would play it there! I am grinding my way through the iZombie mode. Those are some crazy puzzles. I also need to go back and get the last Achievement on the Xbox version… 40 flags? Really? Challenge excepted!
Playing – Uncharted: The Golden Abyss – (Vita)
I am not sure, but I don’t think the Vita will ever get out of this games way. I was moving at a good pace, the action was up, and I was having fun! Then BAM! I had to stop to rub the dirt off a pic ax. That seems like something I didn’t want to do. On the story side, it is shaping up to be a very solid Uncharted experience. I am not just saying that as an Uncharted fanboy. I am finding Chase (read: female intrest) to be rather dynamic. More dynamic than Ellen? No, but I have not finished the game. So we will see.
Playing – Bloodryne: Betrayal (Playstation 3)
How on Earth did I miss this game? How on Earth is a game this slick based off a franchise I took a pass on? This game is not for the faint of heart or the slow of reflex. You cannot button mash your way thought the fights either. I find the game refreshing in the way it must disregard players who don’t take the time to learn the depth of it’s fighting. I really want this on the Vita because at the end of a long road trip, this would be the perfect relaxation tool. If you have PS plus, it is free right now.
Playing – McDonald’s Playland (IRL)
From time to time, we go to the free play place at McDonald’s to let our oldest go nuts. This usually involves her bossing other kids around and calling for help from the highest point of the equipment. She doesn’t really need help. She just likes to see me contort my body in unnatural ways in attempts to get to her. But this time things got strange, real strange. It started out with a little girl who has a bright future as one of those sorority girls that scream at the top of their lungs for things like – seeing each other, seeing each other again, seeing each other after they just saw each other just then. It was painful to hear. Luckily (for us) her grandmother was there to ask her, “Is that you yelling Mercedes?”. She didn’t tell her to stop screeching just asked if it was her doing said act. Mercedes would say no, and the grandmother would give up. She tried, she failed, and we paid with our ear drums.
I promised that things would get weird, and here we go. A family came in and let their kids go crazy. I mean it, the kids were insane. How insane? The thirteen kids that were playing were gone in under two minutes. We decided to try and stick it out since she had been really good in attempts to earn the reward she was enjoying. Soon these kids were coming over to our table and asking for our food. Luckily, their Dad was too busy with his phone to notice. Soon, we were packing up to go. As we were leaving, one of the insane kids started hugging on the twins. Still nothing from the parents. He followed us out the door and almost to the van. I wonder if I drop kicked him if I would have gotten a reaction from the parents? I doubt it.
Well, I’m off to game.
