Welcome once more to the Weekly Recap, where we put on our fancy hats, horrible English accents, and look at the past week in blogs, reviews, and features as if we could do any better.If that doesn’t sound like a grand old time to you, well… then you must hate fun.
And speaking of fun, don’t those upstanding young men in the header just look like they’re having a blast? I mean, who wouldn’t dictate their lives by what grown men in clown make-up rap about? And yes, I know what you’re thinking; “why bring up ICP? It’s not the 90′s anymore!” Well, because they released the most dope, life changing song ever. And it’s in the wrapup.
Think of it as your dessert after chowing down on a good, healthy serving of recap.
For a second week in a row, some sexy-beast here at Gamer Limit has posted some more fan-art over the past weekend. Some gaming, some cartoon, all awesome. But I could be a bit biased… just a tad bit.
How many RTS games are there in the world? Apparently at least one more than I remember hearing about, because Michael reviewed Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight this week. Sounds interesting, but I’ll just keep playing Total Annihilation and wondering how anything else could possibly be better, thankyaverymuch.
Although I never played the original title, news that NCSoft Trademarks City of Heroes 2 got me kinda excited. I always wanted to try the first game but just didn’t have the time or money at the time. And even though I don’t now, I’m more inclined to think I do and buy something like this.
My top runner for “Game of the Year,” Deadly Premonition, was on sale at Amazon last week. It may have just been $5 off its already low $20 price-tag, but it helped boost the title to the number 1 spot on Amazon’s 360 purchases for the days around it’s sale. If that isn’t dandy and awesome for an indie title, I don’t know what is.
This week’s community poll was about the PokeWalker and it seems that everyone loves it. It’s no surprise to me since I use it probably more than I am currently playing the game. But maybe it was a surprise to you?
If you had to choose one or the other, would you pick movies or videogames? CynicalMonkey chose movies but I chose games. How about you? Which side do you fall on and why?
Knowing how much Martin loves sandbox games, it comes as no surprise that he quickly jumped on board to review the new Bionic Commando Just Cause 2. Sounds like a solid game. Too bad they couldn’t get Mike Patton back to be the voice though.
Short but sweet seems to be the consensus on the new Mass Effect 2 DLC: Kasumi – Stolen Memory. But seeing as how I don’t play the game, don’t take my word for it. Take the big chunk of Kevin’s words for it, instead.
If you’ve been itching for a Wii game to play, Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon might be just what you’re looking for. From everything Dylan said about it, I think I may have to pick it up… which is depressing cause I try to do everything within my power to make him feel like he has no impact on my life what-so-ever. All that hardwork, down the drain.
In another Tales from the Bargain Bin, Jamie takes Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for a spin and seems to come away from the experience much more impressed with it than I would think possible from a JRPG (after all, they tend to be the same game, just with different feminine looking main characters).
On Limitcast Episode 37 – Ekans on an Enalp, you have two different voices to sooth your podcasty ears: Dylan and Sean. Although the former is probably just the new whipping boy since Chase got so comfy with it, Sean was there to discuss his experiences with PAX.
They also went over things like the new 3DS announcement/leak, the iPad’s release, and an Easter themed segment where they talk about what games they’d like to see resurrected. If that isn’t appealing to you, then I just don’t know what you want from me anymore… *sniffle*
Well, it wasn’t a super long recap this week, but it was highly concentrated awesomeness. And to end such a magical recap, I figured we’d talk a little about Miracles…
“Music is all magic… you can’t even hold it! It’s just there in the air.”
Deep, Violent J. How do you pack so much philosophical value into your lyrics? I guess… it’s just a miracle, isn’t it?
