Weekly Rundown - 06/13-06/19

Games this week:

  • Playstation 2 - Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII
  • Playstation 3 - Infamous, Dragon Age: Origins
  • PS Portable  - God of War: Chains of Olympus

Short list this week.  I recently got Netflix, so, I've been watching a bunch of films when I should be playing games.  Bad me.

I got past the point in Dirge of Cerberus I was stuck at last week, so, that's something.  That game is so terribly uninteresting, but, I hate leaving games unfinished.  And, I find myself paying zero attention to the cut scenes this week, I noticed.  Maybe it's because I don't share the reverence everyone else feels for Final Fantasy VII?  It was a fun game, but, I just didn't love it as hard as everyone else.  Oh, well.

A little aside in between the big boys, I played a tiny bit of Chains of Olympus.  I wanted to see the story again after playing God of War III, so, I popped it in, started a new game with all my stats from a previous save, and went on my way.  I'll probably finish it up pretty quickly.

More Infamous, not much to say to that end.  Playing through on Hard difficulty and the evil side.  Also, old news, but, the evil side is way more fun!  Like, holy cow.  The grenades separate and explode EVERYWHERE.  And you don't have to worry about zapping any of the civilians who run in between you and your target, basically right into your lightning, the bastards.  You didn't have to worry anyway, it was nigh inconsequential on the good side.  But still not a very heroic thing to do.

Dragon Age: Origins.  I got severely stuck in Castle Redcliffe this week.  I thought I may have to quit playing, this damned Revenant kept kicking my ass.  It's making me realize what's missing with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard.  Some of that precision in the combat is lost.  But, with a heavy stroke of luck, I made my way past that fight and continued onward!  Not for much, though, I was stuck on that fight for a couple days.

That's probably part of why I didn't do as much gaming this week: kept getting stuck.  I'd lose several times and say, "Fuck it!  I'ma watch Hellraiser," or whatever movie I put on instead of playing video games.  Also, I watched The Big Hit, love that movie.  Anyway, that's it for vidgames this week!  See y'all next Sunday!
