playing this weekend…

Got a DS Lite, got some games from Netflix Gamefly,  and I’m set for the weekend. A quick list of what I’m playing.

  • Brain Age – Picked this up for free thanks to a coupon (pdf file, coupon is still good through the 18th) from Best Buy. I’m enjoying it so far even though I’m a little annoyed by the touchpad thinking my 8′s are zeros.
  • New Super Mario Bros. – I think it’s kind of funny to see so much excitement over a 2D game. Proves that graphics aren’t everything. My only complaint so far is that a lot of the secrets are actually too easy to find.
  • Hitman: Blood Money – Despite all the controversy over the advertising, the critics still seem to like the game. Personally, I’ve always liked the Hitman series, if for nothing else, the game emphasizing and encouraging the player to finish the mission as professionally as possible. Instead of just killing everything that moves, you’re better off here killing only who you’ve been told to kill and getting out without a firefight. It makes the game more of a puzzle game than a fighter, leaving the path completely up to the player to figure out. Unfortunately for me, this often means I have absolutely no idea what to do. Frustrating.
  • Gunstar Super Heroes – The sequel to the Genesis game Gunstar Heroes may have slipped under a few radars. Right now it doesn’t quite stack up the original, but I’m only about half way through it. Sucks that they took out the combination weapon system though…

Edit: I love it when I make absolutely no sense… that should be games from Gamefly. I wish Netflix rented games… I’d switch in a heartbeat.
