The Urbz: Sims the in City (Project Backlog)

Status: Completed main story, working on Rep quests

While I was grinding up in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn to take my second go at the final battle, I decided I needed a bit of a break and went through our DS game shelf for something new to play. I wanted a game I could play while sitting beside my husband and watching TV shows at night while he programmed. His copy of The Urbz jumped out at me, seeing as I’ve been addicted to Sims Social on Facebook. This way I could have my Sim time without being in the other room. A win-win. (more…)

DLC Purchased: Original American McGee’s Alice (Online Pass Content)

I love the dark and macabre, things that make me jump out of my seat or emit a small scream. Horror movies and games filled with puzzles are right up there in my books and I will go out of my way to watch and play what others consider “bad”. Ages ago, when you could rent PC games and not have to worry about DRM, I seem to recall trying to get my hands on the original American McGee’s Alice and it almost always being out. A dark and twisted retelling of the classic story appealed to me but I honestly don’t recall playing more than a few minutes of the original. Alice: Madness Returns seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit both the new and old versions of the young girl’s Wonderland, thanks to the Online Pass offering the first game for free. (more…)

Impressed with the first part of DeathSpank’s tale, I made sure to pick up the second installment before I stole Lord Von Prong’s Thong. It was a smart move because I immediately began playing Thongs of Virtue. Damn Hothead and their addictive game. Damn that Sandy and her womanly woman-ness! (more…)

DLC Purchased: None

I picked up DeathSpank and it’s sequel during the recent EA sale on the Xbox Marketplace, months after checking out the demo and wishing I had the points to grab it at launch. Santa deposited some points to my account at Christmas and I decided to hold off on buying stuff right away to see what kind of Boxing Week/End of the Year sales might go down. I have to say I am very glad I held out. (more…)

Dead Space

Status: A little ways past that stupid asteroid shooting that took me forever
Achievements: 7 of 48
Gamerscore: 110/1000
DLC Purchased: Elite Pack, Elite Suit

Purchase Dead Space from Amazon

I was really into the game until I got stuck on the asteroids. Months later my cousin in law helped me get through them and when I picked up the controls again I forgot everything. One of these days I will bother to finish it. It really is a good game.
