The latest game that I bought was Mario Kart 8. It is really a great game and I do believe that everyone should play this game at least once whether via friend or demo if you don't have a Wii U. It's been a blast playing with my fellow ZDers and I'm actually impressed by their skill level! Dare I say if we made a team against other players across the world, I would pick these guys as they are on par with my skill if not better! I have practically put down everything just to play this game. I have such an addiction playing 12+ hours per day and have been losing sleep in the process. It's not even a week old and I'm already getting the high out of this game whenever I pause for a while. :cooky:
I decided to splurge due to the fact that I'm starting summer courses next Monday and I'm basically going to have zero time for games for a loooooooooong time until I get my degree in December.
Metroid: Zero Mission. Already played it, but that was on an emulator and this is on original GBA cartridge.
Hotel Dusk: Room 215. I'm really liking the visual novel genre of gaming, and this is a pretty darn good example of one.
Nier and El Shaddai: Ascention of the Metatron. Heard really good things about both these games, and unlike last time this happened I actually did my research to find out if there were any drowning of priests at the end and, thankfully, nothing like that should happen. (One's a post-apocolpyptic tale of Liam Nee- I mean a father getting his daughter back, and the other's a retelling of the Book of Enoch.) I look forward to playing these at some point.
It's been a few weeks, but received Tools of Destruction, it is certainly as beautiful as people say it is, but they didn't put in as much time in on the post-game content, so that was a tad disappointing. Still it is a great game, especially if you aren't a 100%er.
