Last week, I finally completed Escape from Monkey Island! I'm so glad to have that behind me...
I also played the fourth episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two.
And the new game I'm playing is Murdered: Soul Suspect.
My Week in Gaming 7/21-7/27
My wife and I finally finished it!!! I have to admit that the last couple hours of the game were good and sent me out feeling much better about the whole experience, though there are still some pretty bad parts of the game that can be very frustrating due to some bad puzzles and unclear direction. I'll take a few months off from this series before paying through Tales and finishing it all. (I honestly hope they don't announce a new MI game for at least another year or two...)
Yes, this is a mediocre game. However, I'm having some fun with it. I am not regretting the money I spent on it or the time I'm spending with it, yet... I'll have more thoughts after I complete it. I hear it is only about six hours long.
The fourth episode may be the one I like the least, this season. There is one character I'd like to just let die, but the game is making me hang on to him/her...while forcing me to make decisions to make that relationship work. It's the first time that I've felt such a strong disconnect between the choice mechanic and the actual extent of choice. I've always known the game was very restrictive, but I've never had a problem with my options until now. So, I'm really anxious to see how episode five ends up.
If you've already played this episode... you can see my spoiler below on the character and action I'm specifically talking about.
It's Kenny. I think he's reckless and really just want to be rid of him, but I am not getting any opportunity to let him go despite everyone else seemingly wanting me to abandon him. Also, I didn't want to kill Sarita but was basically forced to, because I was bit if I didn't put an axe in her skull...
