What I have been Playing (Week Oct 11- 18 2012) Warning Spoilers Through out this Blog!!!
So this week was quiet a slow week in games with everything picking up again in life from school to work but needless to say I will keep this blog going, just because the how much I love talking about games and broad spectrum of games I play, sure to make something interesting to say the least. In this week I dive deeper into the world of Fuel and talk about the dreaded grind fest coming up in Earthbound. On side note I got my Wii back so some recommend games to play on the virtual console will be greatly appreciated and will be featured on this blog.
There is always a moment in games, more so in games you are replaying where you just dread gettiing to. Since the beginning of when you hit that new game button and past when the world is setup and the plot is built comes that point. It can be a wide range of thing like a tough part you could never beat or a quest where you have to jump a million loops to complete. In my case its a grindfest of hours and hours of battles and battles to find the sword of kings an ultimate weapon with a dreaded drop rate of 1/128. Back to the first time I play Earthbound I remember it took countless hours/days to get it. I will post on my next blog how long it took to get this wonderful item. So with that off my mind lets get more into the experiences. I talk about how much I love this story so lets do this some more. Earthbound does plot so well, they give you stuff to do not related to the main plot but still help further your goal of the 8 melodies and when you jump back to that your like shit I forgot I this was my main thing I was doing. Earthbound keeps everything fresh and interesting by adding all these sub plots like the Runaway Five and the pyramids of Scaraba to name a few. So I'm about 2/3 of this game complete but the best parts are still to come.
Ah Fuel, I'm Saving this game mostly for the weekend and be prepared to hear briefly about this game a long time of this blog as this game s huge. I'm big buff on finding and doing everything a games has to offer but this game puts me to the limit. I'm about 7 hours onto this play through and only on the 3rd camp out of 19 and if you do that math equal crap that huge. This draws me to the number one flaw of Fuel, Sure there a massive world to see but there is not very much to do beside the main races which seem still interesting at this point but the challenges, finding the view point and skins are all but tedious. The environments you see are even getting old. There was a little bit of a beach to drive around but it has been mosly of that broken down trees, forest and lots of dirt roads to see. I'm giving this game a chance and getting more into it next weekend or to the fact that I have to complete everything but more on Fuel in the Future.
Wanting to Buy or Find:
So not much new on this front but keep them coming with the games to play on the Wii/VC and also give some hidden gems to play on the original Xbox. But other then that I'm still wanting to buy a copy of Red Dead Redemption and Jak & Daxter the first game in the series.
That's all for now Folks thanks for reading and comment away with feedback and opinion, keep gaming and as always I will leave you with this gaming music goodness.
