More On: What we're playing

I'm playing my way through the Decepticon missions for Transformers: The Game on 360.

As I progress further into my review for Pet Alien, I realize that the game is devouring unusual quantities of my time.  It's really a slick little puzzler that's oddly addictive and accessible for just about anyone.  It probably has to do with its similarities to Chip's Challenge, an old puzzle/adventure included in the Windows 3.1 entertainment pack.  I sunk untold hours into that game, trial-and-erroring my way through its cruelly logical levels.  Does anyone else remember that great old classic?  No, I didn't think so...

If I'm undetectable this weekend it's because I'm snuffing out light sources, lowering my signature radius, mapping downwind routes past adversaries, and twisting silencers onto the ends of my government-issue armament.  It's stealth-action time in my household as I'm reviewing Vampire Rain, getting Michael Ironsided with last year's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and revisiting an old friend now at the end of the alphabet in Tenchu Z.

I will be whoring some achievement points from Amped 3 on the 360 in my quest to 20k and playing some Halo 2 Vista and Shadowrun on the PC.  Otherwise, this is a work weekend around the house.

I'll be playing Overlord during most of my free time this weekend.  I'm having a lot of fun with this one, and it's remaining enjoyable much longer than I had thought.  I might find a little time for some turn-based game as well, but I'm guessing that I'll be ordering evil minions about for the majority of my weekend.

This weekend will probably be spent plowing through the new Harry Potter and once I finished th book I'm going to try and get in a little quality time with Project Sylpheed and the Quake Wars Beta that I've become rather enamored of as of late.

I decided to go back to MLB 07: The Show seeing as I'm in between games. I don't know why cause after hitting .348, being World Series MVP, and winning a Gold Glove I was sent back DOWN to the minors to start the 2008 season. Umm, ok. Gee, thanks. Of course, the bad management decisions don't end there as I see they release Travis Hafner before the season started and I finally get called up with the team in 2nd to last place about 1/5th into the season.
