Long, long ago, almost 3 years at this point, Fallout 4 was released. Thought it gets a bit of a bad rap in terms of some of its failing, and some of them are rather rough, it was still a very fun and enjoyable game. Killing super mutants and raiders in the Wasteland is something I just can’t get enough of. But there was something I wasn’t prepared for enjoying: Settlement Building.
A while back, A friend of mine was pushing me to join Monster Hunter World. It took me more than a little bit of reluctance to get there, but I eventually did. Now, I’m enjoying it well enough, and wanted to talk a little about my limited experiences with it.
It took me just about 10 hours, ages of patience, and a number of days I just cannot seem to remember to beat the final boss of Dark Souls 3, but I did it. I’ve mentioned I’m not very good a video games, right? Well. Here is how a very bad video game player took him down.
It has been a long and Bloody road for our protagonist, the silent Thief. But the end is near, and there is only one thing left to do – Finish the game. I’ve taken down a number more bosses since our last visit to the Game, so lets take a look. AND REMEMBER ALL THE SPOILERS AHEAD
Its been a busy week here for Dark Souls. Its been fomenting carpel tunnel in my hands at a prodigious rate, which is fine with me. Its like playing a strange and interactive movie at this point, and I absolutely adore it. So, Who’ve I beaten, lately? Come on in and see, and remember. SPOILERS, SO MANY SPOILERS
I have been warped. Things about me have changed. There are certain pursuits that I no longer enjoy because of other things I have been exposed to. Dark souls is the culprit of one of these things. I am, at long last, playing the capstone of the trilogy, and it is reminding me of things I once thought were fun, but no longer are.
This post is a long, long time coming, but I do want to still keep up with the games I play to some degree. I picked up FFXV after some posts and recommendations by a few friends. How did I like it? lets take a look.
I mentioned before that I had started Assassins Creed: Black Flag a short while ago, and its been a strange start. Its a cool puzzle game, with a neat theme and a fun ship to ship combat system. I keep coming back to the game, mostly because its convenient, but also because its an enjoyable distraction.
I think. Actually, the feelings I have with this game are complicated. This game has both some excellent hooks and some really strange effects that both keep me coming back and have started to make me sigh in frustration. I’ll work through those, and give an update on my progress in the game, so SPOILERS AHEAD FOR A 3 YEAR OLD GAMEContinue reading
Some times, It takes me a long time to get around to a video game, and then finish it. I grabbed Dark Souls way after release. Valkyria Chronicles took years to beat. I’m still looking with longing at Thea: The Awakening.
Thus is is with Assassins Creed: Black Flag.
Now, I don’t play stealth games. Never really have. I made it approximately 20 minutes of gameplay into Metal Gear Solid (yes, the first one) before I gave up. Assassins Creed, however, had a certain appeal to it. Not one would break the hesitation, mind you, but something that made me think that if I gave it long enough, one might come around that I did want to play. Some three years ago, they did.
Assassins Creed: Black Flag was just the right angle to get me intrigued. Age of Sail Naval battles have fascinated me for a while now, and this gave me the opportunity to jump in and maybe be a pirate during that time for a little while. Its not going to be historically accurate, but it’ll be interesting to see the setting, explore their version of the world, and maybe get some good hooks that pique my interest to go look further into the time period and the history – Much like Vikings, Amon Amarth and Dynasty Warriors had all done in their time. What did I think about the first few hours? Come with me and we’ll take a peak!
As always, spoilers about this game. It is, by now near 3 years old, but.. caution.
