Whats the first game you played this year

Post by shiftytigger » Tue Jan 01, 2013 4:03 pm

Surely needs no explanation. We started our new year today - what was the first game you played once the new year hit?
Did you go retro or were you in the middle of something new when the new year rang in?

For me its Blood Brothers on my S3 and Gradius Collection on my PSP. (Grovelling fawning thankful appreciation to my secret santa yet again)

Super Street Fighter IV with the bros. I'm sure this will continue until SF5 is announced... or Capcom vs SNK 3

Weeeelll...CvSNK2 is hopefully coming West on PSN via PS2 Classics this year so it's start (Japan already have it). Same for Capcom Fighting Jam but that was crap anyway. Link to news story

CvSNK3 with KOF XIII graphics and Capcom gameplay would be earth-shattering.

Anyway, my first game for this year was Paper Mario: Sticker Star and I also played some Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed today so it's just me carrying on with last years games...
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I actually went retro without intending to. I was on the PC Engine for a bit of a blast on Gunhead before putting the kids to bed.
However, I'm about to fire up Castle Crashers, to complement watching Robin Hood. :wink:

Vanquish - PS3.

I've just got to the last Act, so I might get the story finished tomorrow.

was playing Big Sky Infinity before that, which is a side scrolling shoot-em-up (bullet hell type thing), also on the PS3.
