Lastly, here’s the Tap My Katamari trailer:

I went on a discount-fueled backlog purchase binge over the Christmas holiday, like I do every year to get 2 to 3 games for the price of 1 new game (a few months patience pays off, literally).

So I’m still busy playing Rare Replay’s 30 games, especially the N64 games like Conker’s Bad Fur Day & Blast Corps still rock! As well as Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, The Legend of Korra and I finally got Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 to get my exergaming on! Can’t be sitting on the couch all of the time! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

What video games will you be playing this week? Any of these?
