May 9, 2011: wallet threat level red

, | Games

If you haven’t had your fill of Legos or Pirates of the Caribbean, you’ll have to let me know how Legos: Pirates of the Caribbean is. I can’t be bothered to try it not just because I’ve had my fill of Legos and Pirates of the Caribbean, but because I’m already busy with two really good games.

The first is Brink. It’s no surprise that Brink is really good. It’s from Splash Damage, the folks who made Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Quake Wars. They know what they’re doing: making sure players are thrown together in a carefully crafted multiplayer experience. The second is Virtua Tennis 4, which has a cool career mode that puts Virtua Tennis’ tennis onto a sort of turn-based board game.
