Another Wednesday means another chance to have your voice heard on a light-hearted topic!
- What games have you been playing lately?
- Are there any you would recommend to other Border House readers?
- Are there games that have you ranting or raving?
- Are there any games that you played and want to see covered on the site?
I was out of town this past weekend and was not able to spend a lot of time playing games. I did get in some time with Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. I am still enjoying that game and it is just a fun experience.
I also started Iron Brigade from the Xbox marketplace and finished a handful of missions. I am not a fan of my Polish soldier’s accent but otherwise I was having fun. All of the playable soldiers are male and the intro has some over the top versions of men’s magazines with titles like Man’s Life and Real Man. At this early stage of the game it has felt satirical and silly, rather than offensive or sexist. Although I do wish I could play the game with a woman soldier rather than with a man.
Finally, I would have played some Witcher 2 but the newest patch is not working on my PC and that has effectively broken the game. After 3 failed attempts to download and install the patch I ordered an Xbox copy since it also has the Polish voice acting. I will now have to wait another week before I can try out the game.
So, what have you been playing recently?
