Weekend update


| Comments (7) | Views (1)

Weekend updateIt's always feast or famine when hunting down good games to review and post here. And with the lack of a good game posted in a few days, it seems that we're all getting a little hungry about now. Never the one to post a game simply because it's the thing to do, I generally prefer to wait a day (or two) in hopes that something truly brilliant will make its way to the surface of my awareness.

And then there are times when games will just drop into my lap, so to speak. For example, game authors will sometimes send word of a recently completed game for me to try—thank you Tonypa, Ferry, Jonathan, JP, Philipp, et. al.)—and sometimes a kind soul will send me a review for a game all written and ready for posting. And while I won't promise that I will post every review that is sent in, I will certainly try.

So today I want to offer up (at least) two (2) games that I feel deserve a mention, both of which sort of found their way into my inbox.

The first is a game that I probably would have passed on posting here myself since it is a fighter with a narrower target audience than usual for the games I like to feature. And yet Garrett did a fine job with the mini-review, and it IS a well-produced game that he claims is full-featured and a lot of fun.

The second is a recent addition to MTV.com that, apart from some control issues, is a fairly good game that features a wide array of different mini-games all delivered in a Wario Ware-styled frenzy.

As always, your comments are much appreciated. And thank you kindly for all the wonderful shout outs and birthday wishes that helped make this year's an extra-special one. =)

Oh my, Bryan, so sorry to keep you waiting! =p

I was invited out to dinner to celebrate my birthday, and then had to watch Desperate Housewives and then Grey's Anatomy.

Just sitting down to write something up about the other one now. In the meantime, if you want to play the game and let me know what you think, here's the link to the MTV game.

Just please wait to post a comment about it until I post the review up, because I don't have an easy way to move comments between pages.

cheers.
