First, I finished up Bioshock: Infinite
. Great game. The gameplay itself perhaps isn't all that revolutionary (although the whole skyline idea is neat), but the story and characters are what pushes the game over the top. One of the best games of recent years, and every bit as good as the original Bioshock
if not better. This game is a must-play.
Then I played a game called Analogue: A Hate Story
. It's a mostly text-based game in the style of a Japanese visual novel
game. It only takes a few hours to play through (I'm a speed reader), and offers a not particularly interesting or compelling story. I don't think I recommend it.
Now I'm bouncing back and forth between playing Orcs Must Die
and a comedy point-and-click adventure game called Deponia
is a tower-defense game where you defend magic portals from waves of various nasty orcs. It's hook compared to other tower-defense games is that in addition to placing your traps and snares, your character (in the third person) is also directly involved in the fight using a variety of weapons and magic. It's good, mindless, gory fun. I havn't played much of Deponia
