Since the last time I wrote about video games, I’ve purchased a few more for my shelf and actually finished a couple of them! I’ll post some full reviews soon, but here are the games that I’ve added to my library.
I’ve been a fan of the Guitar Hero series since I had Guitar Hero 1-3 on my PS2. It was a staple in my high school gaming experience. Well, I decided to put some of my Christmas money towards adding the party edition of Guitar Hero Live to my library. And I love it. I like the real people in the play-through, making me feel way more epic than just pressing buttons in my bedroom. I also love the idea of TV mode, where you can play whatever songs come up on various channels – keeping the game interesting far after you complete all the setlists.
Rayman was another huge one in my childhood – played this one on my N64. So I was really excited to pick up a copy of Rayman Legends. I’ve played a couple of levels so far, and am definitely way more interested in the regular platforming levels as opposed to the auto-scrolling levels. It’s given me a reason to put this game down for now, but I will for sure come back to it!
STICK. OF. TRUTH. I am such a fan of South Park, and had really no idea what I was getting into with this game. I wasn’t sure what to expect. And honestly, that’s the best way to go in. I finished it within a couple of days – and I mean finished as in, I collected everything and didn’t just rush through. I’ll write a more complete review later, but this game was AWESOME. I’m definitely going to replay it sometime soon, and if you’re a fan of South Park, I recommend you give it a go.
I’d never heard of Rocksmith before my boyfriend mentioned it, but I’m so glad he did. I took guitar lessons through high school but haven’t really tried to progress since then, and have been losing my ability to play. Kind of stuck at the “simple chords” level. I’ve played this game a couple days in a row, and it’s incredible. You plug in an electric guitar and it teaches you how to play. There are technique lessons, games to strengthen your skills, lessons how to play specific songs, leveling up as you get better and leveling down if you’re having troubles – it’s so helpful and has turned teaching myself how to play into less of a chore! I love it.
Have you played any of these? What are some of your favourite games that I should add to my library?
