Let's Talk About The Video Games We Played, Loved And Hated Last Week

A busy seven days chasing around after my kid then jetting off to Sydney meant I didn't get to play as many games as usual. Still, I got to play some, and turns out this week was a case of quality over quantity.

BLACK MESA - It's almost everything I wanted it to be. And, surprisingly, in some cases it was more. A herculean effort from all involved.

SID MEIER'S COLONIZATION - Dug up my old copy, moved it over to my new HTC One XL, spent a bus ride to Sydney engrossed in one of the best - and, it turns out, most timeless - PC strategy games ever made.

SLEEPING DOGS - The (sorry) sleeper hit of the year just can't keep me away. The further into the story I get, and the fancier my suits get, the deeper the game gets its hooks into me.
