mjc's weekly gaming summary 20-26 Oct

by on

What's this all about? I take my weekly gaming summary from Raptr and chat about a few of the games I've been playing. Feel free to leave a comment and share what games you've been playing this past week!

The Wolf Among Us

Before I played this, I knew little to nothing about it, except that it was something new from Telltale. Wow, what a surprise. I loved the story, loved the look, and I love the improved gameplay mechanics. I may just have to go and read the Fables comic book series, but I might wait until I finish the game first. The second episode can't come soon enough! Go buy it and play it now!

Sonic Lost World

Yeah, it's not the best Sonic game and it probably deserves the mediocre review scores it's been getting, but I'm such a massive Sonic fan that I just don't care. I've sank about 10 hours into this since picking it up on launch day, and will keep going until I'm done. There's just something about Sonic - probably the nostalgia - but I just can't get enough. If you're a fan, I'm sure you'll love it.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

Another game I started this week was The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. It seems like a mini Diablo of sorts, and a damn fine one at that. The story has been a bit slow at times, but the fantastic look game world and solid gameplay keep things moving along. There's some sound issues, graphic glitches, and dodgy voice acting at times, but it's still a polished game that's worth a look.

That's all for this week, but before I go, I'll leave you with my favourite screenshot of the week. This is from The Wolf Among Us and it's my new favourite video game character, Colin, one of the Three Little Pigs!
