The Games I Played, Loved and Didn't Love Last Week

Illustration for article titled The Games I Played, Loved and Didnt Love Last Week

So, unless you were at PAX, or stuck at work, what did everybody play over the weekend?


Me, my time was split between the following:

TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON - Finished up the singleplayer on this last week. Thought it was a lot better than the first game, much tighter pacing. It sags in the middle, but the beginning (METROPLEX!) and end (FIGHTING!) are everything a Transformes fan could want and then some.


WALKING DEAD EPISODE 3 - In 28 years of playing video games, I have never cried. Until I played this. Those who have played it will know exactly which scene I'm talking about. Those who haven't should probably rectify that. I've had some unkind things to say about Telltale's work in the past, but their work on this is some of the most accomplished video game story-telling I've ever seen. Powerful stuff.

SLEEPING DOGS - Like most of Kotaku, I'm playing and loving this. Finding the side-missions are getting a little repetitive now I'm a few hours in, but the combat, voice-acting and virtual tourism is still a blast.

DUST: AN ELYSIAN TAIL - Didn't like it. I'm in awe of the fact the majority of the game is the work of one man, but the art style and voice acting just put me off.


GUILD WARS 2 - I hate MMOs. But I'm giving this one a shot. And finding it' MMO. Can't stand the "fake" combat, but I'll explore the world some more and dig a little deeper before walking away.

What about you? Digging a new game, or revisiting a classic?

I've been playing Silent Hill Downpour and Gundam Extreme Vs. Got my ass kicked in seconds online while playing Extreme Vs. Downpour isn't as bad as people make it out to be. So far I'm really enjoying it but yes it isn't as good as SH2 or 3.
