I have written before about enjoying video games even though I don’t play them. In that post I said Kingdom Hearts was pretty. Well lemmee tell you, those days seem to be over because I can’t stand whatever new/current version of KH my partner is playing right now. Here’s what’s been going around the #1 household lately, in case you care…
Bastion: pretty decent. Highlight is the musical score, which the composer describes as “acoustic frontier trip-hop”, which is really very accurate.
More fun than that: Infamous 2. (Still not on my all-time high list)
Games like Vanquish bore the hell outta me.
Alan Wake: Are you SURE Stephen King didn’t write this game? A writer encounters zombies.
This video is AWESOME:
pitching a video game to Cookie Monster
(unrelated but: new podcast I’ve been enjoying recently: Dead Robots Society.)
#2 is hoping her partner will get Portal 2 one of these days. Sure, she can listen to the new ending credits song on Youtube, but is that really the same? #1’s partner has beaten Portal 2 and gifted a copy of the original Portal to me so I can improve my terrible video-game skills. This was a triumph.
Do you play video games? What are your favs?
(#2 likes to listen to her partner sing along)
