Belated Merry Christmas December 29, 2008

Posted by Matthew in Stuff.

Good Christmas? I didn’t get any games as presents, mostly due to the fact I had bought them all beforehand at launch, rather than waiting one week for them to be reduced in price by twenty fucking pounds or something. However, I did buy a few:

Guitar Hero: World Tour (360) – not bad but Rock Band 2 is leagues ahead of it. The only things WT does better are detecting hits on the drum pad better and a countdown when you un-pause the game. Oh, and Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter is on the track list, which is a fucking awesome song.

Mario Kart Wii – works brilliantly with the steering wheel peripheral. Online play is implemented very well, leagues ahead of Smash Bros. Brawl.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 – The first game broke my phone. The sequel is addictive as crack and simply brilliant. Variety of modes will keep me interested for a long time, unlike most Live Arcade games.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix – longest name ever. I played SSF II Turbo all the time back on my sisters SNES (with a little help form an auto fire-enabled pad) and loved it. Takes a bit of getting used to, mostly due to the appalling 360 d-pad which I might modify if I can be arsed
