Ah, lunchtime (of 4/30/08) – the best part of the work day. Today’s lunch consisted of not just good food, but a few good games as well. I just got back from Gamestop; traded in some old games and got a few new ones.
ESPN NBA 2K5
ESPN NFL 2K5
ESPN NHL 2K5
Rallisport Challenge 2
These are all great games (except Rallisport Challenge 2 I can’t vouch for; I bought it used and it never worked), but I just don’t play them. Sports games and I have a somewhat rocky relationship, as I usually only play them when I have friends over. But, I’ll save that discussion for another time.
That said, here are the games I picked up – after my sweet trade-in value of fifty-five cents kicked in!
Need For Speed Most Wanted
Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3
Of the three, I’ve only had time to play Most Wanted, but I’ll hopefully check out the other ones soon. Yoshi’s Island is an old favorite of my wife’s and Legends received good reviews – so once I get to them, I know I won’t be disappointed.
We even had some friends over to try Most Wanted, but we ended up having more fun with Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2. Hey, whatever works – I just want the games on and the people happy.
