This just in! What actually happened on the 21st of December last year.
This week I baby sat my brother-in-law. Which gave me a great opportunity to try out all of those demos that I’ve been collecting on my PS3. And some Wipeout HD that I got for free from the psn incident. Lego LoTR was a really good demo. You get to play the Helm’s Deep part, and though it is quite short it was great fun. The Lego games makes good use of cooperative play, which not many games do today. I guess that it’s a tough thing to incorporate in the story as you want people to be able to play games on their own. There is quite a risk to making a game that can only be played when you are more than one player. But being able to play through a campaign together with a friend improves the game alot. I remember Kirby Star Super Deluxe, any enemy could be converted into a helper that your friend could contorl using another gamepad. Or Sonic 2, where you could control Tails. I rememeber fondly how I played these games together with my brother, they were the best games since we didn’t have to watch when one of us enjoyed the game. I would really want to see more of these games.
Another demo that we tried out was the Rayman game. And I didn’t like it. It just wasn’t fun. Even though I’m usually a fan of Rayman.
And we played some Fat Princess. I really enjoy that game, even though multiplayer is really annoying trying to keep everyone on the same screen. And the servers are all empty nowadays. It’s too bad that it didn’t go all the way.
Wipeout was fun. The sixaxis steering messed me up. After three tournaments I finally got a decent position in the races. Feels like it got quite the learning curve. I really liked the speed and edge-guard. Wonder what it would be like to play this with the Oculus Rift.
Well that is my account of baby sitting.
