It’s a rare time for me: there isn’t anything coming out in the foreseeable future that I actually want to play. So what does that mean? Downloading games I wanted to get long ago (and if I’m lucky, sifting through the backlog)! Pushmo is a 3DS exclusive puzzle game that has you pushing and pulling blocks as you hop your way to the goal. I’ve been able to spend some time with the game already, and I must say, as far as puzzle games go, this one has a lot going for it.

One of the best things about collecting video games is that you’re never short of an interesting title to play when you’re bored. Enter The Unholy War, a 3D fighting game for the PS1 from Toys For Bob, the same development team that made the out-of-left-field success that is Skylanders. The Unholy War has some interesting things going for it that make the game not like any other brawler, and you know what… it’s pretty damn fun.
Mario Party 9 was a pretty fun game. I’ve missed out on most of the series, but I was happy to be able to play and review this one. To be honest though, much of the game is eerily similar to the first game in the series, and by that I mean it’s a heck of a lot of fun with friends! While playing with my girlfriend, I decided to record some gameplay. Here is the resulting montage of Mario madness. Enjoy!
What a guy! Nintendo’s portly plumber has saved the Mushroom Kingdom dozens of times, rescued Princess Peach whenever she was in peril, and even let his brother share the limelight every once in awhile, and now he’s throwing yet another massive party for all to attend!
Mario Party 9 is the first game in the series to come out in over five years and mixes up the formula quite a bit, without sacrificing the core Mario Party feel. If you’re looking for a reason to turn on your Wii, this is the best excuse since Skyward Sword.
What’s that? Another tragedy has befallen Japan and demons are at the center of it all? Hmm, must be another Shin Megami Tensei game. Devil Survivor 2 is the follow-up to the RPG/strategy hybrid Devil Survivor (which saw a recent remake on the 3DS), and it has you once again controlling a group of young heroes as they unravel the mysteries surrounding the most recent trip Earth has taken to its ultimate destruction. I know it’s terrible that the world is in shambles, but if mass destruction is this much fun, count me in, baby!
Everyone has one. That one game that you recall as being your first video game. The game that holds your earliest memory for all the games you’ve played. For some it might be something insignificant, like Math Blaster that you played while in school. For others it could be something totally different, like Halo 2 at at party with friends. But no matter what, if you consider yourself a gamer, then there is a game (or a few games) that will always be your first and earliest games ever. I had fun looking back at mine and wanted to share them (and a little of my childhood) with you.
Another week full of work and no play. Alas, I wasn’t able to play much at all this week thanks to a lot of work (which is still nice, I guess). Thankfully,Mario Party 9 has fallen into my possession, and it’s been keeping me fairly entertained.
