Here I’ll be sharing my video game picks for the end of the week, and suggesting some awesome current games for you to get into this weekend!

Hi gamers! It’s been a while since I last updated with what I’ve been playing lately. Last weekend I played through the PlayStation Network downloadable title: Journey. I was absolutely mesmerised by the gorgeous art direction, seamless gameplay and beautifully fitting soundtrack! The game truly exceeded my expectations, and I found it to be an extremely enjoyable experience – especially when incorporating the co-op functionality. When you play with an anonymous companion online, you somehow grow attached to this other person aiding you on your Journey, even though the only means of communication between the two of you is a wordless shout. It’s truly a unique experience, whether you play alone or with a companion as you travel across vast landscapes and escape danger in order to reach your ultimate goal. I highly recommend this game if you haven’t played it already. I’ll be playing through it again this weekend!

    Another game that I actually just started playing today is: Mirror’s Edge. The game’s been around for a while now, and has been on my ‘to-play’ list for too long. When I saw it available for a bargain price I knew it was time to finally pick it up, and I’m definitely not disappointed. The atmosphere and action in this game is fantastic, and it’s proven to be an enjoyable challenge so far. I’m also equally as impressed with the soundtrack which suits the game’s atmosphere perfectly, and although I’m more of a fan of the third person perspective, I think that the first person perspective suits the gameplay very well. I look forward to playing more this weekend!

    For those of you haven’t played Mirror’s Edge yet, the game is available for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Here’s the launch trailer:

    Also, if you’re a fan of the Mirror’s Edge soundtrack, feel free to listen to my cover of the game’s theme song “Still Alive” here. 🙂
