Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, German sausage with dear friends, the deliciousness of Woodford Reserve, or Drow wisdom, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
It’s time for the annual RPad.TV halftime report (which is actually written by you guys)! The first half of the year is over and I want to hear all about your favorite games from 2012. Has much changed since you picked your favorite games of Q1 2012? To paraphrase Warner Wolf, let’s go to the comments section! Before I get to that, I’ll throw in my two cents.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is still my favorite game of the year. It’s a Japanese RPG with a Pokemon-like monster-element (and Serah in a bikini!). Of course I enjoyed it. The other game that stood out to me was Quarrel Deluxe for Xbox Live Arcade. The iPad version gave me dozens of hours of entertainment in 2011. I love being able to play the game online through XBLA in 2012.
So how about you? What are some of your favorite games from the first half of 2012?
