I did it for one of my favorite genres (the fighter) and I’ve got to do it for another genre close to my heart, the puzzle game. Whether you’re connecting colored gems, filling in gaps, solving brain teaser, or shooting shiny balls at other shiny balls, the puzzle game is a staple to the video game community that isn’t going anywhere. And with so many excellent games to sink your teeth into it can be hard to determine which games offer the best challenge, the most addictive gameplay, and the most satisfaction upon completion. Vol 3 of Worth Playing is here, so let’s get this underway.
As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!
Let’s take a look at a lesser known puzzle game for the PS1. Intelligent Qube for the PS1 is a puzzle game that has you taking out cubes (or qubes) on a grid of other cubes (or qubes) while avoiding falling off said cubes (or qubes). And it works quite well. I just suck at it. This week’s addition to the Modern Classics library is a jolly good game that will definitely make you feel dumb.
Two re-releases and another PS1 classic are the newest additions to the library: Intelligent Qube for the PS1, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition for the Xbox 360, and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for the 3DS.
