Last week plenty of folks were turning back the clock with Battlefield 1943, and this week it’s all about Lucasarts’ re-imagination of the adventure classic, The Secret of Monkey Island. For some, it’s a look back on a classic. For me, it’s a chance to play something I always wanted to play.
Aside from Monkey Island, other popular titles include Trine, NCAA Football 10 and Fight Night Round 4.
Let us know the games you’re playing…
