Today is the day I finished Ocarina of Time on my 3DS, my final playtime was of around 24 hours and going to wait a while before starting Master Quest. I loved the game so much! Every second of it, I have finished it on N64 back in the days quite a few times and was so happy to see that the experience held up. Great game even after all those years. I didn't really mind the graphical improvements, I didn't even notice to be honest. I had this thing where I couldn't see the improvements until I actually did a screen by screen comparison of both versions, great improvements but again didn't help me enjoy the experience more. Ocarina of Time has been my favourite game for a while, every time there is one of those "What's your favourite game of all-time?" conversations, it's the game that comes to mind with Final Fantasy VII, so to play this game again is a big confirmation of how much I was right about it.
But other than that I've been playing a lot of Xbox 360 games, mainly Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Revelations. Let's tackle those games one at a time.
1. Battlefield 3:
- Still amazing to my eyes
- Can't enjoy the Call of Duty formula anymore so great change in pace
- As I'm writing this, I can't wait to go back to my 360 and play it some more
I love this game, love love love it. I love the size of the map and how it legitimately feels like a Battlefield. I love how I can have "Holy sh**" moments every minute. Super happy I bought this game, can't wait for the expansions packs, Back to Karkand is going to suck me back in crazily when it comes out next week.
2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim:
- Still great
- Can't seem to finish it :P
- Just starting to take some breaks of gameplay
Ok, I love Skyrim a lot, it's a great game and all BUT I think I'm starting to reach my tired point. I'm getting a little bit tired of doing the same thing in long periods of time, I feel like now it's become this game that I play after long breaks. When I first got the game I couldn't stop playing until I reached the 50 hour mark, having completed the main quest line, the Dark Brotherhood and some other side quests. The main reason I'm stopping is that since the patch, mages are impossible to kill as a melee guy. I love to charge groups and just slam my way through. Doesn't seem possible anymore and that sucks, either the mages are way too overpowered or I've gone soft or something. Either way, I'm going to start playing it on small intervals when I get tired of Battlefield 3 or something.
3. Assassin's Creed: Revelations:
Just got the game delivered as a rental and I have played around 10 hours and I can't play anymore, I was forcing myself to go through it and at least reach the end to see where the story is going but I give up. This game came out way too soon, I'm a big fan of the Assassin's Creeds but damn I can't play them that much anymore. I'm sending it back without actually completing it, I think I'll just have a break and rent it back again in a few months when I get over my AC fatigue. Before the game came out I had heard a lot of people talk about how the game came out way too soon and I thought their complaints were kinda stupid or whatever (because I loved the series so damn much) but after playing for a few hours I was so sick of it. I can't do it anymore.
Overall it was a good gaming week in my opinion, good games and can't wait for the next few weeks where my gamefly cue brings me Saint's Row 3 and Deus Ex. Keep on gaming Giantbomb!
P.S. I was at the library studying some Computer Science at the University of Toronto when I noticed a guy seating a few meters away from me on his computer scrolling through Giantbomb, always feels great to see actual people on Giantbomb :)
