Dark Souls

I played quite a bit of Dark Souls¬†earlier this year, but eventually put it aside as I got to a point where frustration was getting to me. But the other day, my friend Johnny came over to act as “guide” for me playing through it, offering helpful pointers throughout, and it was a blast. Over about 4 hours of play, I got way past where I’d gotten before on my own, and managed to take down – with some online visitor help – some of the big baddies. Who says that all great co-op experiences have to revolve around having 2 players play at the same time? Not me.

Battle of the Bulge

I’m not usually into strategic war simulations – not at all, actually – but I can’t recommend Battle of the Bulge for iPad enough. It was recommended to me by a friend, and after playing through the free demo version, I pretty much immediately bought it (and it’s fairly pricey for an iOS game, at $10). The presentation is spectacularly done, and the gameplay is dead simple yet fun. My biggest challenge is in really understanding how to properly make my advances, without losing my supply lines – which basically leaves your advanced troops dead in the water. The game also supports online multiplayer, which I haven’t tried yet.

Porco Rosso

Porco Rosso is awesome through and through. Really love this film, and all of the dogfighting sequences are truly thrilling to watch. Even though it won’t be directed by Miyazaki, I’m still really excited that a sequel is coming our way soon. I want to experience this world again, with a new story.
