I mean it's completely playable that way and can really change up the experience. However I just prefer third person view for driving and since I like using cover it's easier to just play with the third person camera.

It is great for sight seeing though I do enjoy just riding a bike around the city in first person.

Previously:
Lego Marvel on the 360

Updated:
Minecraft - 360 I almost completed the original achievement set on Minecraft, but the number of achievements was doubled with the last update on the 360. Not thinking I'll get close to completing it by that standard. But I did finally build the 500 meter rail track, and also befriended a 5th wolf! (Discovered that one of my daughters set my survival world to creative mode at one point, meaning the rail I'd built would never count. Creative mode negates any progress against achievements. So I had to start from scratch on a new world. Oh well. :( )

New entries:
The Unfinished Swan - PS3 I'd read a little about this one, and it really piqued my curiosity. I like how the devs introduced new play mechanics throughout the game - even into the credits. My daughters watched me play the game and really liked the story - especially the last chapter. I liked the little tip of the hat to the Journey developers.
Journey - I've played through this one twice now. I really enjoyed it as a non-traditional experience. Again, my daughters are enthralled. They like the alternative game experiences.

We played through 2 levels of Flower tonight, and after their initial frustration with the six axis control, they really got into it. Good times!

Previously: 2014 | The First 400 Games

School's out, so the game playing time is kicking up. In both of these games I unlocked everything in the main mode of the game by getting enough levels, stars, etc. to advance through to the end.

Both are a lot of fun. Mad Riders is not as polished as something like the Motorstorm series or even Pure, but it makes up for it with goofiness, a simple presentation, and plain old basic, stupid fun. Race the Sun offers an intense challenge that takes some time to get comfortable with, but can induce that "being in the zone" feeling quite nicely when everything is firing on all cylinders.

On a side note, this entry marks 500 games logged since I started keeping track of beaten titles back in 2010. :)

Loom just has a way of invoking melancholy in general. I beat the EGA version of this game when I was 12 years old, and even way back then I keenly remember the feelings of happy/sad that permeated the experience. I was also disappointed that the game was so short. But it was utterly brilliant while it lasted. It's a masterpiece of the genre and remains unique to this day.

People who say that games can't be art, or that if they are they fail as games, haven't played Loom. It is successful as art and as game. Also as great storytelling, which is an art to itself.

My second non-Nintendo console game clear of the year! Could this be a trend? Howbie-Wan and I visited our mutual friend Redline09 yesterday in Austin. While waiting to leave to see a movie, Hobie and I quickly demolished this game. A few thoughts:

- I have been very wrong about this being the Genesis version of Turtles in Time, or even an adaptation. It felt more like a re-make of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game but with art assets from Turtles in Time. What a great example of the wackiness of 90's games that would never happen today.

- Waaay too easy on 2 player. Even the last fight was a cinch once Hobie explained to me that we could basically sandwich Shredder and take turns dodging his attacks or punching him in the back.

- Choosing between this or Turtles in Time, I'd choose Turtles in Time. This was a great game and the controls were perfect. I just felt, at the end, that there wasn't a lot of content and that it was way too short.
The PSTV is amazing.

18. Pokemon Shuffle - Nintendo 3DS (May 12)
19. Hearthstone: Blackrock Mountain - PC / iPhone (May 17)


Pokemon Shuffle was great for the first 150 rounds. I'm calling the game beaten now, because once I passed those initial 150 stages, it seemed like the game started saying, "Hey buddy, it's time for you to throw done some cash for this game we gave you, okay?" Seriously, the only real troubles the game gave me early on was how to budget your coins, IE Gengar and Mewtwo Y really. Now it seems every other stage there's some tool you need to purchase using coins or jewels, and I think it's diminished my interest in playing any fruther.

Hearthstone Blackrock Mountain was something I wanted to jump into. I loved the first expansion, Naxxaramus, so I figured I'd see what the hubbub was all about. I beat the single player campaigns, which provided some great amusement and variety outside of the normal arena/constructed modes. Some really neat encounters and play mechanics made it really interesting and some new decks to construct based on the strategies each boss presented. If you like Magic the Gathering, I bet you'd love Hearthstone!
