Indoor Enjoyment: Great Games for Summer Rain Delays

Haven't we all dreamed of being Spider-Man? Haven't we all dreamed of being Spider-Man?


Hey gamers, we here at Rosebud Magazine are always psyched to talk video games with our fellow growers. In the latest issue of Rosebud Magazine (the one with hottie Brooklyn Decker on the cover) we run down some of the hottest video game titles of the summer. These are a great way to mellow out after a long day in the grow room, or to enjoy yourself when the rain makes that trip to the lake less inviting. And hey, sometimes just being in an air-conditioned room, safe from the mid-day heat, and blasting bad guys on screen is the best summer activity of all. Enjoy!

Why We Want It NOW! Because it brings back the Grand Theft Auto-like free-roaming, open-world motif of such great Spidey games as Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man. It also picks up where the new movie leaves off, with an original story by Battlestar Galactica writer Seamus Kevin Fahey that has some Oscorp robots running amok in Manhattan. But since our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler is new at the whole superhero thing, don’t expect this to be as easy as Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots.


Developer: Blizzard Entertainment (World of Warcraft)
Publisher: Blizzard
Systems: PC, Mac

Why We Want It NOW! Because we’ve been waiting a dozen years for a new version of this super-addictive, hack-and-slash-and-spell, action-adventure, role-playing game. Playing a witch doctor, a barbarian, a wizard, a demon hunter or a monk, this game has you battling evil in the fields and caverns of Sanctuary, a land as full of monsters and mayhem as it is treasure and riches. And with lands generated randomly, we might actually get 12 more years of enjoyment out of this game.



Developer: From Software (Armored Core V)
Publisher: Capcom
Systems: Xbox 360

Why We Want It NOW! Because we get to pilot a mech (a bipedal robotic suit) into combat in this gritty war game. In other words, we’re Optimus Prime … sort of. Best of all, while moving and shooting is done with a regular controller, SB:HA also employs the Kinect camera controller, so you can move your hands to toggle switches, share a canteen or return a grenade to its rightful owner.

Playing on the Side: Fun gaming stuff to do when you’re not gaming


While BioWare has canned the next add-on for Dragon Age II (and is instead moving on to a sequel), fans of this epic adventure series need not go through total withdrawal. Set between the second and third games, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker is a CGI animated movie in which a religious conspiracy threatens to plunge this fantasy realm into war. Directed by Fumihiko Sori (Vexille) in conjunction with the Japanese animation house Oxybot (To), this anime will be available on DVD ($24.98; funimation.com) and Blu-ray ($34.98), with both editions including behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with the crew and “A Trip to BioWare.”
