Nick’s Top 10 Games of 2012

NickGOTY

When I first began my top ten list for this year, I had only a small idea of what I would put on there as I could only think of a few recent releases, largely due to the industry releasing everything in the last quarter. However looking at release date sites and compilation list for 2012 I realized how this year was one of the best years for the video game industry, despite many unfortunate layoff’s and setbacks. My top ten became real difficult to decide upon near the end, as there were games on there at first that I decided to cut as I have not had the opportunity to spend excessive amounts of time with them. This makes me quite sad, but hopefully 2013 will be the year to catch up on my increasing backlog. Never the less, 2012 turned out to be a great year with huge blockbuster sequels, some phenomenal re-boots and a few surprise hits from developers. I hope you enjoy, and all the best in this holiday season.

Crash Test: Intel Discovered

In a feverous haze one Tuesday night, Evan sent me a link to a new Kinect indie title. Within moments of briefly skimming the press release and seeing that it said FMV, Kinect, and Chris Evans, I dropped everything I was doing and rushed to my Xbox. Fearing this was some kind of joke or PR stunt or something, I thought I should download it as soon as possible before it gets pulled for being too crazy or something. Well, it’s plenty crazy and we played through the whole thing so you won’t have to.
