I have turned into a reblogging machine. My hope is that everyone looking or following likes Pokémon, video games, comics, and sexy naked people. I go through moods of reblogging and it can get a bit NSFW.
Games this week:
Games! I honestly don’t know how many more of these I’ll do, as I’m getting tired of it. Once every week since May last year, I’m just getting tired of writing for myself, I guess.
So, mostly, I powered throughAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Because I’m tired of playing it but I can’t stand to leave a game unfinished. But, mission accomplished, I finished the story. And now it’s back on the shelf and I may never touch it again nor playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations. I just don’t care. I was talking to a friend about this, and I think the reason I’m dislikingBrotherhoodso much is because it’s so much likeAssassin’s Creed II, which got a lot of leeway because it was the sequel to a game that had a lot of problems. And, as that sort of a sequel, it really shined and impressed. But, the sequel to that is more of the same, and all of the issues really shine through. I’ve spoken of these issues previously, but, a short recap: the controls are wonky and straight don’t work some times. It’s especially frustrating near the end of the game. I don’t know if this is because I was just sick of it or if it became particularly problematic, but, I was very frustrated. The Leonardo missions are not fun. I played the warship one and the horse-drawn cannon and that was enough for me to know I wanted to avoid those missions. Both involved a shooting mechanic that was imprecise and slow. No fun. The Brotherhood mechanic is still awesome fun, but, obviously not enough to hold the game together. The writing is still fun, Ezio is great and seeing him grow throughoutAssassin’s Creed IIandAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhoodwas great. The Desmond stuff is still a little weak, and I’m not enjoying the complete cliffhanger endings thatthese two games have had. And I’ll probably never know how Ezio’s story ends, because I highly doubt I will ever buy and playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations. Here’s hoping thatAssassin’s Creed IIIfixes some problems and goes back to being fun.
I played a little DJ Hero 2, just to remind myself how much fun it is. I want to see if I can find a soundtrack for that game. I would love to have some of those mash-ups just in my music library. But, I only played four or five mixes, not a lot at all.
I didn’t play much else. Pokémon, of course. I hit a wall needing to train up a Psychic-type, but, I’m truckin’ along. I think I beat some trainers out of order, though. I beat Chuck and Jasmine, who were about ten levels over me, but now I’m outside Mt. Mortar and the trainers all have Pokémon ten levels under me. Whoops. Anyway, team currently consists of Drowzee (no nickname, didn’t think I’d be using him on my team), Dee (Bayleef), Bob (Vulpix), Olette (Noctowl), Sean (Flaafy), and Glen (Quagsire).
I don’t think I’m going to continue Final Fantasy X-2. I haven’t played it in weeks and I have zero desire to go back to it. It’s just not hooking me in. Maybe it’s been too long since I played Final Fantasy X, but… just no interest.
And, that’s it! Hopefully next week? I mean this in all seriousness, if anyone reads these and enjoys them, sound off in the comments or send an anon message or something. Something to let me know people legit enjoy these and would like for me to continue, okay?
Games this week:
Hah! I remembered to do this at the appropriate time! Unfortunately, I barely played anything this past week. It’s been busy.
I did play a little bit ofFinal Fantasy X-2. Which pretty much consisted of reading all of the tutorials for Sphere Break and going to the Djose Temple and meeting Gippal. All-in-all, about fifteen minutes.
I played a good bit ofAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. And, I know they wanted to change it up and such, but I’m getting tired of the game making me do things that aren’t enjoyable. Piloting Leonardo’s boat to take down the Borgia warships? Not fun. Driving that horse cart with the massive gun and trying to shoot people while it’s bucking around? Just really frustrating. And desynchronizing as soon as I’m detected? That’s extremely irritating. I can’t remember if that part was prevalent in previous games. It’s really bugging me. But, aside from these complaints, the game’s still a lot of fun. It’ll never get old getting up behind a guard on a roof and shanking him.
My absolute favorite part is the whole brotherhood mechanic. It’s a lot of fun managing my assassin crew and sending them on missions. But the real kicker, as everyone who’s even heard of this game probably already knows, is pressing that left bumper and having my assassin’s drop on dudes from nowhere. So satisfying! Really sells Ezio, and by extension the player, as a badass leader of a little army.
And then, of course, Pokémon! Just caught myself a Sudowoodo and beat up the Kimono Girls. Team currently is: Olette (Hoothoot), Glen (Quagsire), Dee (Bayleef), Ladyboy (Ledian) is back, Sean (Flaafy), and… Bob. A Vulpix. Don’t judge! As much as I love Ladyboy, he’s not working out so great right now… I hate bug-type Pokémon, they’re always so weak. But I’ll roll with him as long as I can.
And then that’s it! I’ve been having the urge to replay Mirror’sEdge, but we’ll see if that goes anywhere. See y’all next week!
