I started the month off with a bang, taking a trip to London to attend the Eurogamer Expo. I’d cover it with quite some depth here if it wasn’t far more convenient for me to simply link this, this and this!

With that large (short) chapter of my month out of the way it’s on to the retail gaming. Nothing is worse than playing a beautiful game and having to walk away from it for months to follow.

Starting off with arcade titles I have fallen in love with Super Meat Boy, easily my favourite arcade title to date. The level of skill required has each and every level mocking you and pushing you to the verge of anger explosion… bliss. I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed Costume Quest, particularly having completed it on Halloween of all days. Last of the arcade bunch is Blade Kitten, a pleasant surprise but nothing in comparison to the former two titles.

On the DLC front I’ve managed to finish both of the Alan Wake DLC chapters, which were quite a disappointment and certainly failed to clear up any confusion or loose ends from the retail story. I still hold my discontent for DLC in general, as one again a game that gives large promises for its DLC falls short.

Last and far least are retail games! The first game, Naruto, was a massive surprise delivering the best and fullest campaign I’ve seen to date. Fallout New Vegas came along shortly after and has consumed my life. What a game! This scale and depth of RPG adventure doesn’t come around very often, and Fallout is the perfect world to set it in. Obsidian have done a fantastic job at maintaining the success Bethesda started.

That’s it for me this month, I wonder if next month can be even more jam packed given some of the blockbuster titles coming out? I can only hope.
