Games played this week

I’ve not had time to update this week, but, unusually, I’ve managed to play a fair amount.

Apollo Justice (DS)
Still plowing through the second case. I’ve started cross-examining the accused’s girlfriend. I think I know what the story is, and who did it, and why. Hurrah!

Animal Crossing (Wii)
Same as it ever is, really. Played for about 20 minutes each day, just pottering round Cheese; a bit of fishing, some fossil collecting, weeding, chatting to the other residents, and that sort of thing. Also had a visit from The Rev on Friday night, and he left me some fruit. Thanks much!

Swords and Soldiers (Wii)
Stuck. On the third (I think?) mission of the Chinese campaign. Bah.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed (360)
With my 360 back, I bought this as it was on offer this week at 400 points instead of the usual 800. It’s pretty good, actually, although I have started several levels I’ve been unable to progress in as I keep hitting dead ends. And it’s hard.

Assorted Xbox Live Arcade Games (360)
On the ugvm group, there’s a competition running to find who is the bestest of the best at a range of 360 games. I had a go at getting up the leaderboards on Frogger, Geometry Wars 2, Marble Blast Ultra, Pac-Man CE and Track and Field. I didn’t do well. Boo!

Swords and Soldiers (Wii)

This is excellent. If you don’t buy it, you need a kick in the teeth.

It got very hard towards the end of the Aztec campaign, with one level in particular seemingly at stalemate for 20 minutes whilst both side just spammed units, until I decided this was never going to work and gave up. Next go seemed much easier, although I did finish the first objective much more quickly.

Now, I’m onto the second level of the Chinese (or Asian, depending which part of the screen you read) campaign. Looks like it’s going to be hard again as my units seem somewhat feeble.
