I practically never blog here, and well that also means I don't blog...period. Mostly with a strong ultra-combo of lazyness and difficulty to actually find something to blog about.
But faaaaak it! I'll just reach into the inner emptiness of my brain and see what I can pull out.
So first off there's the boner inducing priced games I've been purchasing lately.
BONER INDUCING SALES!!
They go from the likes of me getting the Alan Wake collectors Edition for £31, Darksiders for a sweet £10 aswell as another sweet deal with me ordering Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 for £15. I can't be bothered giving the equivalent of all that to dollars for our much larger US community, but safe to say that it would be still a BONER INDUCING cheap price.
So Alan Wake is probably the highlight of it all, even with me not having played MUA2 yet, I can just tell. Alan Wake is an fantastic game and one that truly surprised me with its quality and how effective it is at really sticking you to your pad. I completed it through 2 sittings purposely just so I don't get this game over with so soon. During my second sitting though, the gameplay did start to feel a little on the repetitive isle of things and I was really pushing myself to reach the end...to which didn't satisfy as much as I was hoping at that. An obvious ploy for the upcoming DLC packs, but still least its story was intriguing and deeply engaging to start off with.
Having the collectors edition too that also snagged with Alan Wakes beasty soundtrack. To which actually only has around a 1/4 of the songs to be found in Alan Wake. The fact that War by Poets of the Fall was excluded really left me perplexed. That along with some small novel which I haven't read through yet but looks like a worth while lie in bed at night for, and some bonus discs to which I also..haven't checked out yet.
In any case it looks to keep me busy for a while and despite me hardly even caring for Trophies let alone achievements I may still aim for the full gamerscore just as an excuse to get as much out of Alan as possible...(no homo)
Darksiders on the other hand is more complex with how my enjoyment fairs. It's...fun and hurling cars at everything is really fun. I've opted to play through on the ''apocalyptic'' difficulty for some unexplainable reason though so I'm admittedly having a tough time getting through it. Overall it's pretty clunky I find and I reeeally wish the block and dash abilities weren't mapped to the same button >=/
Games Abyssfull is looking forward to!...BONER...
There's not really all that much I have on my radar come July. I'm least somewhat anticipating the next piece of DLC from the never ending story of Dragon Age: Origins, Leliana's Song. Other than that there's little much. I tried the Crackdown 2 demo...it was alllriiiight I guess. Not something I'd be willing to pay full price for. Especially since Crackdown 2 only has to offer its single player since I'm still too cheap to go for GOLD on Live.
I'm mostly just waiting on my preorders for Mafia 2, Fable 3 annnd Dead Rising 2 more than anything. Other than that I've got my cheaply priced classics to keep me very well occupied!
And that's it really...whether I could be bothered to keep up some sort of routine blog is..unlikely. Maybe if some kind soul could create me a blog banner titled ''Impressions from the Abyss'' I'd least pile on some more consideration O=)
Oh and yes this was totally for the quest. GYUCK GYUCK GYUCK!
