Don’t hate the player…

There is another side of Kindlelicious.  I am a gamer.  Fairly hardcore, but often disillusioned by recent games.  I guess I am old-school in that I am sick of games where cut scenes fill the majority of play time (looking at you Uncharted 2!).  I don’t mind cut scenes, if they are crucial to game play, but I prefer to be actually playing my games.  Sadly, I don’t find many games these days where cut scenes are kept to a minimum.  Luckily for me, Transformers: War for Cybertron came out this week.  I have this thing for Transformers, you see.  My inner tom-boy squeals with glee anytime Optimus is on the screen.  My husband and I are so crazy about Transformers in fact, that this was our groom’s cake:

Pretty awesome, eh?  I know what you are thinking…my husband is indeed a lucky man.  😉  Anyway, I doubt many people looking for PNR/UF reviews could care less about how awesome the game is, but just in case…IT ROCKS.  Seriously, so much fun.  I won’t get into lengthy discussions on graphics and all, because honestly, most ps3/Xbox games look great these days.  What I will say is the switching between humanoid and vehicle form is very well done (and yes, you can switch in mid-air. WOOT!), the weapons are awesome (some more than others) and you get to play with all the best characters from the cartoons and movies.   Currently, my husband and I are playing the Autobot campaign in co-op mode with a friend how lives 1.5 hours away and having a blast.  My poor Kindle though, is in the corner pouting, this is the longest she has been neglected in a while.  Poor thing.  Oh well…back to Optimus.

    I had a friend tell me once that couples that play together stay together. =)

    My boyfriend and I are gamers to. We’re trying to finish up the Anti-Registration campaign in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I’m game for anything having to do with comic books. He’s been playing Alan Wake which looks like it’s really good. He’s been hogging the controller so I haven’t had a chance to play yet. =/ You and the hubs should look into it.

    I enjoyed this post. Thanks for the rec!

    And bonus points for an awesome groom’s cake!

    Jen–Love the Marvel games! But I was admittedly upset that Storm wasn’t a badass mo-fo. I mean, how do you make the weather chick weak?! I did enjoy Deadpool though..and then my beloved RyRey played him in Wolverine. Score!

    Thanks for stopping by! So nice to meet another gamer chick!

      ::whistles and looks up at the sky::

      I’m such a hardcore Storm fan that I’ve only used her to play the game. So I have no idea how she compares to everyone else. Now I’m mad that they downgraded her powers. The BF ‘s favorite character to play is Wolverine too.

      Glad I finally came out of lurking. It’s nice to find other gamer girls and couples. =) Have an awesome weekend.

    Haha, I wouldn’t say they are downgraded, just not as useful. Wolverine is the best to play with, but my thing is, we get it, Wolverine is badass, what about all these other characters?!

    And no more lurking! You have no idea how happy ‘you have a comment’ emails make me! LOL
