Tiny Tower for the iPhone. Addictive… No. Needy… Yes.
It’s like a Tamogotchi, except you can’t needlessly mistreat it. I may have to delete it soon, but I feel strangely compelled to find out what stores I will get if I carry on building. No way am I buying bucks for it though. Not even I can justify paying to get extras. The best bit about it, I find, is the “Bitbook” Facebook rip off where your tower dwellers say similar things about work all the time. But occasionally they branch out, as seen below (Nice one Victor Beck).
In other news, today I will try to 100% all of Lego Star Wars (I have to admit that Mass Effect, yet again, bored me). So my only condition is that I must play all the way through with Admiral Ackbar. Maybe he can give the other characters some warning as to impending doom.
It’s only natural, right?
I have a choice of three games to play at the moment and I can’t decide which I want to play.
Choice 1) Lego Star Wars.
Having just completely completed Lego Harry Potter, I want to do the same to Lego Star Wars and especially unlock Admiral Ackbar. Mainly so I can laugh at myself for shouting “It’s a Trap!” in every confrontation. But I get the feeling that it’s far too much Lego for one man to endure.
Choice 2) Fallout 3
A game I’ve started and never really bothered to continue. My main reason? I forget what I’m doing and really despise being over encumbured. I have no idea what there is that is actually useful, so I keep what I can and sell it when I can. But I end up having to dump most of it. It infuriates me.
Choice 3) Mass Effect
I’ve started Mass Effect. My friend raves about it. In all likelihood, I should love this game. It’s Sci-Fi, big, immersive and has a great story. But for some reason I just cannot drum up any enthusiasm about it. It just bores me. It’s almost too big maybe? I can’t explain it. Everyone’s talking about Mass Effect 3 and getting excited. I still have Mass Effect 2 in it’s cellophane wrapper. I just can’t get any fun out of playing it. Maybe it’s just me.
I’ll give Mass Effect another go I think.
