The Weekly: Nimble Quest & Bioshock Infinite

New games every week; every week new, sweet, entertaining, brain-rotting video games. So many in fact, that we often forget those "gems" behind during our end-year deliberations. Not anymore. Each week, I'll be highlighting my favorite game released; this way: the commenters have a target to flame, I have some notes for end-year headaches, and we all have fun!

Last week’s PAX coverage pulled up the e-brake on my Weekly, but that won’t stop me from giving you two picks this week to make up for it.

Nimble Quest is a free to play iOS game that surprisingly innovates in a genre that barely escaped cell-phones a decade ago. I’m, of course, talking about Snake. NQ turns the traditions of Snake into a role-playing endurance run and succeeds in making it enjoyable. Party members follow in conga-line formation, attacking enemies on screen as you avoid depleting your heroes HP. It’s truly addictive. 

Bioshock Infinite, by now, needs no introduction. This is how video game writing should be done; philosophically and tonally. This is how game worlds should be built; justified in-game and without force-feeding context. GADDAMMIT! THIS GAME IS SO GOOD! But...I'm sure you all know that by now, right?!? 

Till next Weekly...

    I think Bioshock Infinite is close to being that so called "Citizen Kane" of gaming. Close, but not quite.

    After almost... what - 3 years? And lots of delays, BioShock Infinite 3 is finally here and now a candidate for game of the year. Playing it is like watching a Christopher Nolan film - dark yet compelling. I'm sure first timers would crave to play the first ones after they finished the game and I would recommend this BioShock Infinite guide for "smooth" playing: http://www.cheatmasters.com/blog/2013/03/26/bioshock-infinite-walkthrough-faq-guide/
