November has gone somewhere very, very fast. It’s been a hectic time both work wise and personal life wise for many reasons. Looking back to see my last blog entry dated 8th November is quite surprising. It feels like it was only last week! On the plus side, I’m still attending the gym and enjoying it which is good. 🙂
Anyway, work update otherwise known as me talking myself up slightly.
First up, I’ve written a couple of reviews for IncGamers! Hopefully there will be more to come soon.
I reviewed Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken which was quite a pleasant surprise of a game.
Most surprising of all was the other game I reviewed: Sonic Generations! I really liked it despite its flaws (hence the score). I played it solidly over a weekend as my editor wanted a fast turnaround yet still had an urge to return to it which is saying something. I can see how it wouldn’t be worth £40 though.
Continuing the chicken theme and in honour of Thanksgiving, I wrote a piece for GamePro called Attack of the Mutant Turkeys. I looked at the 10 best moments of poultry-themed violence in games. I could have quite easily extended that to 20. Games are obsessed with chickens!
So yeah, that’s some of what’s kept me busy over the past few weeks. There’s a review of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 going up over at play.tm soon too. 🙂
