What I've Been Playing: The Stanley Parable

So, my first game post-coursework was one that I'd heard a lot about (if an awfully vague amount of a lot), but never got around to playing. And now I understand why, since telling you too much about the game would completely ruin it for you. So, let's talk around it as much as we can.

What I've been Playing: Saints Row IV

So, finishing up the bundle I picked up, we rejoin our "puckish rogues" after they've taken over their hometown and then took over a corporate empire. And SR4 shows that the serious-to-silly transition is exponential, not linear. To recap:

Saints Row 2 starts with you breaking out of prison and shooting everyone in sight,

What I've Been Playing: Saints Row The Third

So, when we last left our anti-hero, the Saints had reclaimed their old stomping grounds of Stilwater, and as a bonus taken over the Ultor Corporation (because, obviously blowing up all the execs means that you get to be the new boss). SR3 picks up what seems to be a few years later - the Saints are now media icons, with their own line of Planet Saints clothing stores and Saints Flow energy drinks. Pierce is now a television star, Gat has bobble-heads, and Shuandi did a dating show (more on her later).

What I've Been Playing: Saints Row 2

I've been meaning to do a writeup on the Saints Row series, but... well, let's say I've been busy playing Saints Row. (Steam says I've clocked 60 hours in SR2, another 26 in SR3, and 8 in SR4.) Let's start with Saints Row 2.

What I've Been Playing: Space Run

So, as part of my ongoing quest to actually play all the games I pick up on Steam sales, I took Space Run out for a spin. The official blurb is kind of weird, so I'll put it in context - it's a sibling of FTL: Faster Than Light, but goes it's own way.

A review of sorts: Hyrule Warriors

So, because our city library system is awesome, we can borrow video games. And they're decently fast at getting new copies in, so even being late to the reservation (I think I was 30-somethingth in line), we got our copy a couple weeks ago.

What I've Been Playing II: The Playing-ing? (And gaming night!)

So, let's see what's been on my plate the last couple weeks.

Race The Sun
This is still in light rotation on my gaming time - I usually get a couple runs in a day. But I suspect that might be coming to an end because of a very odd design decision.

What I've Been Playing: Humble Bundle (mostly)

Some quick reviews on what's been taking up my time lately (and to stall a bit while I figure out my Gone Home review)
