Start A Blog Achievement Unlocked

Well, I am basically do this because I like to earn the achievements on this site, but let me tell you a little something too.

I'm really intrigued by Borderlands II. I did not play the original game, but this FPS/RPG genre seems to be right up my alley. So, I am not sure why I missed it the first time around. Perhaps I'm one of those gamers that is lured in by the sequel tag. I think it's mostly because it is the beginning of the video game season and this game just looks great. I'm sad that I missed out on the original, but I'm sure I can pick up with this one and not be too far behind the curve.

Until I gather the funds for Borderlands II, I have been playing NHL 13 and Mark of the Ninja. Two very different games. I'm not huge into sports games, but I am a giant hockey fan. I cannot play hockey or choose not to, so I find satisfaction in creating a pro in NHL 13 and achieving legend status. I dominated in NHL 12 and this years new real physics are throwing me off. I have to like account for friction,momentum, and force (WTF). So I'm getting the hang of it. It is a lot more realistic and I'm getting some more flashy moves down. And slowly I will become greater than Gretzky.

Mark of the Ninja is a game I picked up solely on the buzz that I've been hearing about it. I love stealthy games, because you have to think and map out a plan a little bit. Which is funny because I'm the girl in Halo that runs out guns a blazing and throwing grenades everywhere, but... when in Rome. So I think what I like most about this game is the art style. I love the clean cut flash animationy, Saturday morning cartooness of it all. The cut scenes are really well done. I also am a big fan of the achievements and the ability to reload a checkpoint if you mess up and oops I killed a guard too loudly. The gameplay is solid. I don't think that I've played anything quite like it. I've heard comparisons to Shenobi, but that is a game that I've never played. All I can really say to sum this up is, I would recommend Mark of the Ninja to any gamer. It is just a joy to play.

Scanning the Mark of the Ninja review and saw your post. I'm loving Borderlands 2 and hope you are able to get it soon. I've got my eye on Mark of the Ninja and hope it comes out to PC at some point. Have you heard anything about that?
