As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!

DeathSpank returns and he’s bringing with him a mountain of weapons, a handful of orphans, and more of the same gameplay from the first two games. The Baconing is the third title in the DeathSpank series and offers up the same blend of action mixed with tongue-in-cheek humor. Leave it to DeathSpank to test the adage “the third time’s the charm.”’
It’s a slow week this time around, and thankfully one of the last slow weeks for video game releases. Only two games (well, 5 technically, and 1 even more technically) were acquired this week, and both of them downloadable. Don’t worry though, I’ve got an extra treat just for those loyal fans out there (so all 2 of you).
DeathSpank is back. Again. For a second time. And in the all new title The Baconing. Quirky humor, action-RPG gameplay, and a distinctive art style help to make this downloadable series one worth playing. Here’s what I thought of the game’s first few hours.
