5 games I’ve been playing lately…and love.

left-4-dead

1.) Left 4 Dead ( Game Consoles : Xbox 360 , Windows ) – I’ll be quite honest, I’m very much into zombie games, movies, etc…yet I hadn’t bought this game, until just recently. The price is definitely right now and with the sequel just on the horizon it’s about time to get into it. I’m quite glad I finally did too. Not only does it have fast paced zombie action (which it has plenty of, no doubt) but it’s also a very satisfying cooperative experience, one which is pretty hard to top. We all know how much I like co-op already. The special infected in the first game were quite interesting to say the least (witches and tanks, anyone?) and I’m sure they have plenty of new things in store for the sequel.

2.) Dead Space ( Game Consoles : Xbox 360 , Playstation 3 , Windows ) – Here’s another one that I grabbed once the price came down drastically (thanks platinum hits). Being a survival horror fan I like to try out new titles whenever possible and this one did not disappoint (especially for a $20 price tag). The creature design, weapons, and environments all work together beautifully to produce a genuinely freaky atmosphere. Although there’s not too much in the replayability department. Co-op/multiplayer or more add-ons other than new suits and weapons might have helped, but it’s still one hell of a ride while it lasts. There’s a counterpart for the Wii out now that I’ll probably check out eventually. There’s also a sequel that’s in the works right now. Can’t wait to chop up some more creatures!

3.) Ghostbusters ( Game Consoles : Xbox 360 , Windows , Nintendo DS , Wii , Playstation Portable , Playstation 2 , Playstation 3 ) – It was really like playing in a Ghostbusters movie this time around. I’m really glad that all the original actors were back for voice work and character models and the story was written by the original creators (Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd) because it really did make the game an authentic experience true to the movies that we love. Being able to step into the suit of one of the ghostbusters (a nameless new recruit) and using the original equipment against old foes (such as Mr. Stay Puft, above 😀 ) and new ones alike is quite fun. I like when the achievements are named after quotes from the movies too, it adds a certain nostalgia to it all. I haven’t tried the online multiplayer yet but it’s a nice idea. Soooooo…who you gonna call? (sorry, I had to)

wet-game

4.) WET ( Game Consoles : Xbox 360 , Playstation 3 ) – I talked about this one a bit already in my Anticipated series (check it out, if you haven’t already) but now I’ve had a chance to finally dive into it. I’m only about half way through the game so far but I’m quite amused already. It’s a great combination of over-the-top action and catchy rocking music. The atmosphere is grindhouse movie alright, from the katana slicing and dicing and slo-mo gunning acrobatics (and a RAGE mode here and there). Like unrealistic movie type action sequences like free falling from a blown up plane (while avoiding non-stop debris nonetheless) too? This game’s for you! It’s just plain fun with unique characters to boot. I like to think of it as a cross between John Woo’s Stranglehold and No More Heroes, which are also both entertaining games. Are you ready for some wetwork?

wiiresort

5.) Wii Sports Resort ( Game Consoles : Wii , of course ) – It’s time to get some Wii into this list, and what better than one of the first titles to use the new Wii Motion Plus accessory. Resort brings alot more to the table than the original sports had, including frisbee, swordplay, archery, wave racing and more. A couple sports also return with improved controls like golf and bowling but what really shines are the new ones. The swordplay and frisbee games are a couple of my personal favorites. Great party game AND it comes with the Wii Motion Plus accessory (or two if you get the new 2 pack copy that came out earlier this month) so what’s to lose? I can’t wait to see what new titles will also make use of the accessory.

There you have it, my most played titles for the month.

Woah…I also just realized that this site is over a year old now. Man, time sure does fly.
