Not quite ready to talk about the ending and other spoiler-laden topics of interest related to Bioshock Infinite. I replayed the ending last night just to make sure I’d remembered it correctly, but now I feel like I need to replay the whole game again and see if anything changes, now that I know what I know.
That might take a while, though, and in the meantime there’s a bunch of other games that I’m playing right now that ought to get talked about.
For starters, this week’s iOS hotness is Nimble Quest, from the makers of Pocket Planes and Tiny Tower. Instead of being a resource sim, however, this is an action RPG played as a game of Snake. Super charming art style and very, very addicting.
As a fan of endless runners, I’ve also been playing quite a bit of Bit.Trip Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, which is also super charming and has an amazing soundtrack and really goes out of its way to be as accessible and as challenging as you want it to be, and everything about it is great except that it tends to give me a headache, for some reason. I think the movement on the screen can get a little bit too fast, which makes me squint. Bit of a bummer, that, but when I need a quick aperitif it works just fine.
I’m still slowly moving along in my Road To the Show career in MLB 13: The Show. Not much more to report, except that it’s the best baseball game I’ve ever played.
I guess the biggest news – as well as the most welcome surprise – is that Tiger Woods 14 doesn’t totally suck. I’ve only played a round or two, but I’m very much enjoying what I’ve seen thus far. The swing mechanics feel just right, and the putting game finally feels fair, and the game feels like it’s been polished and cared for, which is more than I can say for previous editions. I can’t yet talk about the paywall or DLC courses or whatever – I’m still debating whether I want to buy my rental copy and get an online pass – but this could be a very pleasant way to spend baby nap times this summer.
