The Checkpoint – 2/16

Standard

A good Wednesday morning to everyone out there. All two of you. Yeah, I see you in the back sir, thanks for stopping by once more.

As I’m cruising around the web this morning, I thought I’d share a few links worthy of your time. Enjoy!

Sometimes video game designers smoke crack...

Over on 1up.com, Jeremy Parish has been running a series entitled Departing Salute, The Best of the DS. Feel the Magic: XY/XX not withstanding, Parish’s farewell game list for the DS highlights some of the best games on the system.  I highly recommend this informative read, especially if you have somehow managed to miss the gaming goodness of the Nintendo DS.

Steam has been having a random sale this week. Every day a new game is offered (Monday – Batman: Arkham Asylum; Tuesday – Just Cause 2). Both games featured so far have only cost $7.50. Makes me wish I had saved my allowance money!

In a news piece that didn’t surprise me at all, Gamespot reports that the movie based on the game BioShock was unable to find funding. That was one trip I wouldn’t have taken anyways.

Is anyone out there still playing Final Fantasy 11? I’ve been thinking about checking this game out again and was wondering if it was worth it.

Nice Guy Gamer has a great post on video games and battling anxiety. Check it out!

I think that’s about it for today. Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to leave a comment if you do as it keeps me writing.
