Let’s see. Since my last update, I’ve played a ton of games, finished a few. They are:
Hero of the Kingdom II and Hero of the Kingdom III: Yeah, both were fun, hidden object meets resource management games. Perfect casual/mobile games. I don’t recall a ton about their stories, but overall, they were just good simple gaming experiences.
Crysis 2 - Maximum Edition: On one hand, this game is still a marvel even today. On the other, it shows its age in level design and generally started to wear out its welcome around hour seven. At that point, I decided to cheese most of the rest of the game, which can be accomplished by using your suits speed to literally run past enemies to the level end. There are a few scripted sequences where you can’t do this, but I’d say you can probably do so for like half the game, triggering cutscenes and basically enjoying the best part of the game (the cutscenes and story in general). Is the gameplay tight? Yes. Did Crytek open up the corridors in this shooter and allow for a few different ways to approach most levels? Yes. Are the suit abilities cool? Yes. In general, the main thing I objected to with Crysis 2 was its actual length relative to the gameplay. For me at least, this should have ended right about the point you find yourself around 60% of the way through, and that could’ve been accomplished by scaling the pointless encounters back. But, I suppose it just wouldn’t be a mostly corridor shooter from Gen 7 if that wasn’t the case lol. Otherwise, still an excellent if somewhat boring FPS at this point.
Crysis 3: In contrast to 2, Crysis 3 was the perfect length at about 7-10 hours depending on how fast you play. Additionally, the time in between 2 and 3 allowed Crytek to make much better use of the gen 7 capabilities, be they console or PC. Also, it was just a lot more fun in general. The story was better, the gameplay was better, the level design was better. The only thing that was not as good was some of the voice acting and dialogue, which had Prophet whining a lot for some reason. Other than that though, immaculate experience and really one that holds up perfectly well today.
The Last of Us 2: Best game of the year IMO. I’m not going to get into all the internet crap, but it is largely unjustified. The ending itself will probably be divisive (my wife hated it, but I was hoping it would end basically the way it did), but as to the rest, other than being probably ten hours longer than it probably should have been (My run on mostly hard took about 30-35 hours roughly), TLOU2 was spot on in pretty much every way, and that ten-ish hours of filler was enjoyable for me personally. There is also a ton….ton of nuance that was pretty brilliant IMO. But yeah, Abby and Lev were both really cool characters and the game was great. Graphics were insane. Voice acting was as good as it gets. Memorable.
Desperados 3: Great game with shit cameras that I don’t enjoy battling.
Warsaw: Love turn based tactical type games. Did not find this one to be all that thrilling. It’s okay, and I probably got my expectations up too high for this one, but ultimately, it just didn’t grab me.
It turns out that if you complete Cyrano Story (for me, my 7th time out), you’ll be gifted a copy of Moons of Madness from Funcom. As to Cyrano Story itself, it’s free and actually a pretty cool Cthulhu puzzle game that incorporates real life internet searches to complete them (although there is also a complete walkthrough on Steam). The first run post update (pre update, it wouldn’t recognize your answers), took about 40 minutes, most of which being listening to the audio logs. Each subsequent run only takes like a minute though since the actual answers never change. By the way, it’s k/m only, and you basically just click on any clickables and type out your answers. I liked it, and of course there was a nice bonus at the end.
Assassin’s Creed II is done and dusted. I played this on the 360 long ago, but I didn’t really remember the whole game, so I thought I’d revisit it. I can say that unintentional parkour and the occasional stiff controls are still a thing of course, and there are some audio glitches from time to time, but the story is great and the game itself holds up quite well to today’s standards. This run weighed in at about 27 hours with most optional stuff that was story related complete, including the “Truth” of course, which I always found funny considering how religious a lot of people are. Always curious how believers take that aspect of the story lol.
I’m about 5 hours into Fallen Order right now, so I think I’ll wrap that one up next. I’ll also jump into Brotherhood since I never did get around to playing that previously, see how Ezio’s tale unfolds.
Undecided about Crysis 2. On one hand, I’m already 7ish hours in and can probably literally run through most of the rest of the game in a couple hours, but I can’t decide if I want to or not. The game holds up immaculately, but that corridor shooter design (even with the occasional branching layout) wears me out a little. That said, you can literally just run by the enemies on a lot of levels, ignoring them and getting to the next section without even firing your gun or trying to stealth lol. That is an oversight you rarely find in games (or that I rarely find in games anyway).
Call of Duty: Ghosts is done and dusted. This one had a really good campaign, albeit with a cliffhanger ending that will never see a conclusion, but be that as it may, it was really a lot of fun.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is also done and dusted. The game was very silly, but also pretty awesome overall. Everybody is obviously an exaggeration in the game and their personalities reflect this fact, but man were they cool IMO. Anyway, had a good time with it.
Well, Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Combat Evolved is done and dusted. The reskin was very nice and being able to switch between that and the original was cool. Definitely illustrates the advances in graphics since Halo 1 originally released. Anyway, beyond that, it’s the same awesome gameplay with the same shit level design. Getting turned around in Halo 1 is both possible and likely, but beyond that, it’s still a pretty great game.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Reach is done and dusted. You know, I don’t remember Reach being so short when I played it on my 360, but I wrapped up Reach’s campaign in about 6 hours. It was as fun as I remember it being in the past. Only real negative was the frequent audio bugs that made it sound like my speaker was blown. Beyond that though, it was still a very fun game that holds up quite well today. I’ll probably roll through the Halo 1 campaign next, and then wait for Halo 2 to be released in the package.
I also have been playing:
Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, which is still pretty remarkable even ten years later. Outside of the kind of boring corridor shooter layout (despite there typically being several ways to complete a section), it holds up immaculately and is a pretty fun game. That said, it hasn’t wanted to open over the last couple days. Not sure what’s up with that. I’m probably about half way through though.
Remnant: From the Ashes, which is Dark Souls with more emphasis on guns, level design more similar to Code Vein, and some tight gameplay. I can’t say I’m wowed by it, but it’s one of the better 3D Soulsborne games I’ve played recently. That said, I don’t know that I’m really feeling it right now. We’ll see. I think I’ll try co-op out and see how that goes.
Strange Brigade is done and dusted. Honestly, the game was pretty awesome. It had 100% fun factor including ridiculous pulp narration, solid gunplay and abilities, and fun level design. I just wish people were playing this still.
Call of Duty: WWII is also done and dusted. The campaign was fun, if quite cliche. Yeah. Worth playing for the campaign if you got this when it was in a Humble Monthly. Regular Activision pricing though, not so much. I didn’t really rush things, and all told it took me around 7 hours to complete. If you like the MP/Zombies aspect of CoD games, you’ll probably find better value, but I didn’t feel like downloading that part of the game to find out.
Well. Hitman 2 is done and dusted. Or at least, I’ve finished the campaign. I am leaving it downloaded though so I can go back through Hitman 1 as well, and then play around some more on each level. Truly some of the best, most do whatever you want, level design out there. If you had one apocalypse game and weren’t going to choose a mainstay like Skyrim or New Vegas, this could easily be that game. The sheer diversity and amount of challenges, above and beyond the basic story campaign, is something a person can keep revisiting over and over and over and over again.
Wildermyth: Really an excellent example of converting the pen and paper experience to gaming while still clearly being a video game. I really like it. That said, it definitely needs quite a bit of TLC still from the devs. I will revisit this when it leaves early access.
Kingdom Two Crowns: Actually enjoying this one as well. More of a mobile game, but on Steam. You basically create your kingdom one land at a time while fighting off evil and managing your resources. I don’t know if I’ll play this much longer, but the ten hours or so I put into it were fun. Definitely the style of game you can play in as long or short a session as you like. Very casual in that regard.
Strange Brigade is what I am currently playing. Totally fun game. Very much in that L4D2 style of 1-4 players vs the world. Sadly, there are not many people playing at the time, and it can be difficult to find a full group, much less even one player to co-op with. However, it is also a seamless single player experience, so not such a big deal, although co-op is decidedly more fun.
Wrapped up Dust and Salt, which was a really cool choose your own adventure style game with some questionable turn based hex battle and some issues with not editing the script, and yet somehow, it all works nicely. Very DnD, but in a low tech world. I’ve started the sequel, Dust and Salt: The Battle for Murk, which basically puts you on the other side of the story from Dust and Salt, only more limited as you, a city guardsman, try to stop sabotage and betrayal from allowing the opposing army into the city. Pretty good as well, but I haven’t wrapped up any of the non death endings yet lol.
…and then I kind of couldn’t get myself to fire up any games, so in an attempt to bring it back, I fired up Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, which I had played to about the halfway point on the PS3 and always kind of wanted to go back. Turns out it is still a quality game by today’s standards, so that was nice. A very fun game that took me about 18 hours with probably another 6ish (at least) left if I want to go through and wrap up the remaining side stories, which I very well may do. Still worth playing.
Well, Slay the Spire sort of threw my gaming plans into disarray lol. Still playing it. I’ve finished each character a couple times, but still trying to defeat the heart itself with each. Problem is, I keep doing the daily climbs and stuff instead lol. I’m definitely over 70 hours now.
However. I did find some time to play through The Artifact really quick. It was okay-ish. Sort of an escape room game, but not very involved. Took a little under an hour. Sci-fi, and all the cheevos are story based, so if you finish the game, you’ll have another 100% on file.
I am about 7 hours into RDR 2 ATM. I’m liking it, not loving it. So far. I expect I’ll love it before everything is said and done though.
Also started Cryofall. So far, it’s pretty fun. Just sticking with PvE for now. Learning the game, starting to build a sweet base, etc…It’s a very new player friendly game. I noticed only fun and helpful chat on the main U.S. PvE server (server 1). Everyone is just very happy to be playing, and since it’s a no PvP server, there is literally no stress. Sort of Don’t Starve-lite.
I also jumped into Spirit Hunter: Death Mark. It’s suitably creepy lol. Definitely has those classic The Ring/The Grudge/Corpse Party vibes. Digging it. I’m probably going to try to play through this one over the next week. Should be doable.
I did also load L.A. Noire and fired it up. Gonna try to play through all the cases this time around. I anticipate playing this for a while.
Oh, and I got Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines to work properly with the latest unofficial patch. My character generating choices had me playing a Nosferatu, but I did that years back. Not really wanting to hang out in the sewers despite it kind of being the most awesome vampire. Probably gonna go with one of the more dialogue heavy clans instead this time.
I think that is a fair summary of where I’m at gaming wise at the moment. :)
