w/ Wii MotionPlus
A third-straight Wii game topping my list? I'm not sure what's going on here, but it's actually happening
. While it's completely ridiculous that Nintendo has concocted a plug-in peripheral for the Wiimote that makes it a ... (better) Wiimote, Tiger 10's
implementation of MotionPlus was the one combination that got me excited about all the motion tech in the pipeline for 2010. Street Fighter IV
convinced I like fighting games again thanks to es-ef-i-vee
. At least, I've been convinced enough to sell the game -- for money toward the incoming "super" edition -- and cobble together some gift certificates, store credit and loose bills to throw down a hundred bucks or so on a decent arcade stick. DJ Hero
I still haven't forgiven myself for spending $120 -- one hundred and twenty dollars!
-- on the game and turntable bundle, but once I get over that I can admit that DJ Hero
is my favorite rhythm-music game experience ... when the mashup is tight. Can I get, like, "my favorite hip-hop cuts" version or whut? PixelJunk ShooterPixelJunk
PSN franchise, and there's a game for everyone. Shooter
is the one for me.
iPhone games! There's a pile of 2009 releases worth mentioning, but I'll limit my shoutouts to $30's worth: Bookworm
($1.99), Flight Control
($1.99), Homerun Battle 3D
($4.99), Hook Champ
($2.99), iBlast Moki
($1.99), I Dig It Expeditions
($1.99), Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum
($0.99), and Zen Bound
Or Games I Wanted More From
- Killzone 2 -- Getting warmer ... Third time's the charm?
- Resident Evil 5 -- Not Resident Evil 4. Not even close.
- Punch-Out!! -- I'll take my memories of the original over this remake.
- Halo 3: ODST -- Let's give Halo a breather. (Yeah, sure, like that's going to happen.)
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 -- Two words: Favela Level. Two more: Not fun.
New Year's Resolution
I will "beat" Dragon Age
. (There is
an end, right?)
