XBox 360Sadly no new games - after completing Mass Effect (which is fantastic - the reviews did not lie) I went back to Castlevania: Lord of Shadows which I played for about an hour a year ago and then left alone...as I am wont to doing with my games. Anyway, I would have liked a bit more...free roaming because it's a bit linear but it is a beautiful game to look at and is fun to play.PS3I haven't played PS3 for a while I must admit, so Kratos is still sat in my hard-drive waiting for me to return.Steam/PCSuper Splatters:
A game where you launch little blobs of goo around a screen and try to splatter them after performing a myriad of creative tricks in order to get the highest score on a make believe Television show. I cannot think of any other way to describe this game. It has somewhat of a "killing time" sort of appeal to it and as a casual game it's not bad, but it's not outstanding or anything.Will I complete it?
Probably, eventually.Vertical Drop Heroes HD:
This was part of a 'rogue-like' bundle, and follows similar tropes to that genre of games. That is you play until you die and then you start again but with access to the things you managed to unlock in the previous run. Rinse and repeat and the theory is that eventually you will be powerful enough to reach the end. Which is usually where they add a second, third and fourth layer of difficulty before you can actually say you completed the whole game. The style of this game is slightly different in that you are always going down. There are portals on the way down that allow you to teleport back up and collect things you missed on your first descent but they are finite, and each time you choose to go back up you risk being made very dead before you make it to the bottom again. Decent game.Will I complete it?
If I can then yes.Tetrobot and Co:
I played a game entitled 'Blocks that Matter' a while back (it may have been before I started documenting my gaming, I can't remember) which was about little robots that manipulated the environment (blocks) around them to solve puzzles and complete levels. Well this is a similar, more suped up, kind of sequel version of that game by the same company. The puzzles start off simple enough and then pretty soon you are sat staring at the screen in utter confusion as to what you're meant to do and then when you're messing around moving blocks you work it out and then sit back and wonder how stupid you are that you missed it first time. It's great fun playing as little robots.Will I complete it?
YesIt came from space and ate our brains:
This is a bit of a weird one. It's a top down (ish) shoot-em up with pixel/minecraft style graphics and it's really dark. You play as a SWAT officer and all these aliens attack and you kill them. In typical twin-stick shooter fashion there are a range of guns which you can level up and upgrade as you play. Then once you have completed the highscore required for each level to unlock the next you start all over again in a new dark location. I enjoyed playing the first level, died a few times and kept going back to see if I could beat it. Then when I did and got to the new level starting from scratch I just...kind of lost interest I suppose.Will I complete it?
Undecided.Oscura: Lost Light:
A pain in the ass little apprentice cat thing was tasked with watching over the world from some sort of lighthouse of good, got bored one day and shattered the crystal keeping all of the world safe and now has to get up off its ass to sort out the mess it made. Has that Limbo (sihouette) art style going for it and is a platforming/puzzle game like Limbo but thus far is not as brutally difficult as Limbo, although there is time for that to change. The cat can carry around two crystals: one creates platforms and the other destroys them. Kind of fitting with the whole polarised good and evil theme going on in the game. So far my sole achievement has been for dying :DWill I complete it?
