Alan Wake (Xbox) - Just started yesterday and I’ll have to take it slow; seems that in my old age each jump scare in a horror game takes an hour off my life. I’m already stressed about running out of flashlight batteries.
Civilization V (PC) - Finally got it this week and, par for the course, spent 6 straight hours on my first tutorial play.
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (Xbox) - Moon and I got this a couple weeks ago free with Xbox gold. We jumped in to a 1v1 battle and had no idea what was going on (turns out the campaign mode acts as a game tutorial) but finally caught on after an hour or so. Glad we gave this a chance, it filled a void in what is really one of my favorite game types lately (casual/puzzle/card/board game type games).
Papers Please (PC) - This game is weird, engaging, and pretty damn difficult. I keep killing my family and getting fired from my job. It’s a bit like FTL in that way, except you can restart from a specific day’s save without always going back to day one. I’m interested in seeing how the game plays out if I ever make it to the end. So many details to keep up with.
