Let's lighten the tone a little after Monday's blog post, shall we, a post that got a huge number of responses from readers. I read through all the comments over the past two days and was impressed by what people had to say, with a variety of viewpoints.
That's what this blog is all about: generating discussion and letting people have their say, but sometimes I just like to hear what games people have been playing!
I haven't done a lot of gaming over the past few days - day job duties are making sure of that and today is no exception - but on Saturday I finished 2K's Spec Ops: The Line, and while it's not perfect, I found it a thought-provoking look at the other side of modern warfare: the toll that it takes on soldiers themselves.
Master Game Junkie and I finished up Lego Batman 2 DC Superheroes via co-op over the weekend and I've pottered around with some iOS games. The pile of games awaiting review includes The Amazing Spider-Man, the game released to coincide with the new Spider-Man movie, the Ratchet and Clank Trilogy for PlayStation 3, and London 2012, the official game of the London Olympics. And, yes, if you're guessing that it's the usual button-mashing antics that you'd expect with a sports collection, you'd be right.
So, what has been spinning in your PC or console's optical drive lately? Are you, too, playing through Spec Ops The Line? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the game's moral aspects.
Stuff you might also find interesting: Game Junkie is on Twitter and you can email him here. He'll even answer your emails, not get some smart robot to do it. He also has another gaming blog here. It's updated at least once a week.
