Gears of War: Judgment
While a good game in general, I found it to be less epic (heh) than its predecessors. The campaign felt more like a "Missions Mode" one would find in Gears 3. The absence of multiplayer modes such as Horde and Beast keep Judgment from replacing the last game entirely.
This is a dang good game. The best I've played this year so far. It was a grand adventure with a crazy ending.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
At first I thought it was better than the Gamecube game. Then after World 2 I realized it was just a series of repetitive missions that overstayed its welcome.
A weird OVA series about little girls putting aliens on their heads to fight other aliens. It's only 4 episodes, so the ending is abrupt and leaves many questions unanswered. Despite not finding it that fulfilling, I still enjoyed it in a way. It uses CGI for one aspect of the aliens and that's when its 2001 production date is apparent.
I read the Death Note manga many years ago, and admittedly had forgotten some key parts in the story, so they felt new and interesting again when I watched the anime. Aside from some ridiculous chip eating, I enjoyed it, and felt they captured the manga well.
Battleblock is pure fun. It's silly, it's lighthearted, and the whole thing is narrated by Stamper, which makes it instantly hilarious. With addicting gameplay, great music, and cartoony visuals, it has high replay value. Thanks to weekly playlist features, there's plenty to do either solo or co-op, even after beating the story.
