When I switched on my Xbox 360 this morning I joyfully remembered that it is the 16th of the month. Now we all know what that means. Free games. I had been told that the second game this month following Tomb Raider was Bioshock Infinite but I had just plain forgot. So when I saw that this was the game I was being given I was rather a happy duck. I will say though I am quite surprised that they are giving away the newest Bioshock game rather than one of the older ones. But I’m definitely not going to complain. Thank you very much Xbox you’ve just made my day.
So I know it’s been a while but with two great arcade games out in the space of just two weeks I’ve been a very busy little duck. Before Terraria and BattleBlock Theater took over my life there was Easter. I spent the whole of the Easter weekend watching KingDuck play Bioshock Infinite followed by a couple of hours of Terraria. Add that to no work and it was a great weekend all round really. Bioshock turns out to be one of those games that I thoroughly enjoy watching but I don’t really fancy playing myself. I was absolutely dying to know what happened in the end. Even though I hadn’t played I was still invested. So even though I can’t comment on how it is to play the story is fantastic. KingDuck says he thinks it’s easily game of the year 2013 regardless of what else is released this year. Funny story about that. 10 minutes into us playing BattleBlock Theater and that was his game of the year. He’s so fickle. That game is beyond fun though. However I’ve got a feeling that before I get to the end it’s going to reach meatboy levels of frustration and I’m going to love every minute of it. So between dying endlessly in BattleBlock and dying but not quite so often in Terraria there’s not a lot of time left for much else in my life at the minute.
