What We Played for Week Ending April 1st

by Jennifer KibbleApril 2, 2012

This is a weekly segment where we share what games we are currently playing for our readers to get to know us a bit better. Said games can range from retro to current and from casual to FPS games. If we’re playing it, we’ll share it. Please feel free to comment with what you’re playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.

Jason: Most of my time has been spent, once again, in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I’ve been grinding away PvP commendations so that I can enjoy the endgame PvP when I hit 50 (yeah, I took a break and hadn’t finished leveling). Also got back into Halo Reach, I had forgotten how insanely fun Firefight mode can be.

Jen: Working my way through Mass Effect 3 on insanity. I’m on my way to the end game and I hope I can finish it before going back to work on Sunday (which didn’t happen). Not has hard as insanity mode in Mass Effect 2 but still a pain at times. I find myself unable to get pass groups of enemies while half awake at 3am. I loaded up SWTOR and fought off a mob before having to log off again. I really need to get back into that game since I paid for a six month subscription.

William: A lot of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Doing gold challenges now. It’s pretty well balanced, and definitely very fun. The higher level challenges get very tough. I’m also going through the regular game on insanity, but losing my enthusiasm for that, as I’ve played it once already. Playing some GemCraft this weeked. An “Armor Games” flash game. What can I say? I’m a man for a weakness with Tower Defense. This game is pretty fun, but it’s not quite Kingdom Rush.

Chris: Been keeping it old school, after taking a little break from all of the Street Fighter X Tekken. The last week I have played either Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike or Raiden IV both are classics that you can get cheap. Raiden IV will put your shooter skills to the test and online play for SF3 is straight beastly.

Jeff: Most of my time this week has gone towards Metroid Prime, but I’m making time to play Batman: Arkham Asylum. Other than that, I fired up Batman: Arkham City to knock out yet another month for the “Storyteller” trophy. I’m no April fool, I could have the trophy already, but there’s a certain novelty to waiting for each holiday that I just can’t pass up.

Greg: I have been playing a great deal of Warriors Orochi 3. The newest game in the Dynasty Warriors series (which I love), it’s a lot of fun. Also known as ‘The Good Game with Ryu in it that came out in March”. It’s fun. Getting over 2000 kills in ten minutes doesn’t really get old…

    at school me and a buch of my friends played 4 pranks
    1: in the middle of class we just got up and left the classroom. hahahaha its more fun than it sounds we were in the hallway laughing SO hard
    2:our teacher told us to stand up and walk in front of the classroom if we didn’t get our homework done (we had two weeks to do it) EVERYONE in class stood up and got in front the teacher was SO madd because we didn’t have it done then we all yelled april fools ! and the teacher said wow u guys got me good :)
    3:it was the very last period so we all decided to leave at the last 5 minutes of class . we all waited and when it was the last 5 minutes we stood up grabbed our things ( the teacher didn’t notice ) and left once we were in the hallway we all kinda ran because we knew that she noticed . we all laughed and got to our lockers then the bell rang and the teacher was really mad! but it was worth it!
    4: somewhere near the end of 3 period when we started the prank. one person coughed then another and another it went on and on until the whole class was coughing the teacher couldnt teach everyone looked like they were going to throw up. the teacher freaked out soo much it was hard no to laugh !when the teacher was about to call the nurse we all yelled april fools

    About a week ago, probably Friday April 9th, I was watching tv at my friends house (time warner cable) before going to sleep. It was about 1:30 am and we were channel surfing. And then we came across this show about guys joining a sorority in college as pledges, and having to do a list of 50 things by the end of the semester. One of the things was to get a stipper to sign your but. Does anyone have any idea what that show was called?
    If it helps some of the other channels we flipped past were this show about body modification and 100ways to die…

    Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY comes with some 3D glasses but they look cheap. Willl the TriOviz technology used to achieve the 3D effects work with the glasses that you get when you go and see a 3D movie? I think they are called RealD.

    What video game should i get? Star wars the force unleashed ultimate sith edition or Batman Arkham Asylum? Both games seem good to me, and both Star wars the force unleashed 2 is coming up and so is batman arkham asylum 2. So which one should i get?

  • Beavis

    OK I hear people saying that Batman Arkham City is MUCH more better then Batman Arkham Asylum. They say I should get Arkham City and not Arkham Asylum. I’m confused which should I get first? Why do they say Arkham City is so much more better?

    Can i buy the SWTOR CD Key (Star Wars: The Old Republic CDK) From Online Shops?

  • Thomas A

    Does the Batman Arkham Asylum game of the year edition include the original game plus added features? Or is this edition only the added features?

    I bought the game for my husband for our anniversary and I’m worried the game of the year edition doesn’t include the original game, which is what he really wanted. I just thought he would appreciate the extra content.
