Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        I miss that game. Tommy was playing it last week and I was jealous I didn't have the time.

      I ended up picking up Lego Marvel Superheroes and Lego The Hobbit for $17 total with the Plus discount.

        I think I might snag Superheroes. I havent really played any of the other LEGO games, but this one looks kind of like a good "sit back and chill" game.

          It's OK but I was disappointed and never finished it. A lot of the goals are tough to decipher and I got stuck far more than I should have in a LEGO game.

          Batman 2 was a lot better.

            Yeah the wife and I play it and find we too get stuck. I wanted to pickup Batman 2 but it's not in the sale. :(

      Olliolli and the new Mario vs Donkey Kong puzzle game are both cross buy, buy one and get a code for the other. I know a couple people have asked when Nintendo is going to start with cross buy. It looks like that time is now. Worse case scenario, a shacker with only one of the two could give a code for the other to a friend.
