Lost Planet: Extreme Condition | Done

OK, here's a game I completed back in December 2021 but I didn't have a lot of mental energy to write about it. I was planning on working on the trilogy, but after I read some reviews of the sequels (and how the first one was the better of the trilogy), I decided to set aside the sequels, for now :-)True to Kojima games, this was very Japanese in its art style, a type of game I haven't played in a

Watchdogs 2 | Done

Alright!  This is it! I think I've caught up with my game reviews from games that I've played over the past few years! 😂. This one I finished in November 2021.For this one, I returned to Ubisoft's Watchdog franchise. I loved the first one, and I was looking forward to this second one.  Now that the next Watchdogs is out (well, it's been out for a while), I thought I should catch up with

Zone of Enders: Second Runner | Tried

This one is back from December of 2021. Once I finished the first ZoE, I thought I'd jump into the second one.  After about 5 hours of game time, I reached section 6.3 (of this walkthrough),o r 70% through the game, I ended up rage quitting 🤬🤬🤬 (also 😂 because I don't often rage quit).The thing that finally did me in was trying to bring Ardjet up to the surface and the stupid

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Director's Cut) | Tried

Alright! I think I made it to the end of the gamepass games that I tried (and attempted to finish) before my gamepass expired in 2020 😂. It only took me a year (and a half) 😂This is the Director's Edition of Giana Sisters (which I always expect to be spelled as Gianna but anyway...)Plot (from wikipedia):Maria is abducted to the Dream World, where the wicked dragon Gurglewocky holds her prisoner.

De Blob | Tried

Tried in gamepass in May 2020This seemed like an interesting game - at least in premise. You arrive in a city that's just totally gray and devoid of any color, and you bounce around and make things more colorful.  In premise, it seems like a   nice game to get into a zen zone and just enjoy it, but in May 2020 I was working on finishing up my dissertation (or was I done?) and I

Zone of Enders | Done

 A bit out of order in terms of when I completed this game :-).  I've gone back to try to finish disc-based games (so I can safely pack them away).  In December 2021 I finished Zone of Enders, which was part of the HD remake for xbox 360 (box art shown is from the original xbox).Plot from Wikipedia:The game takes place in the year 2172; mankind has colonized Earth's, Mars', and Jupiter's

Far Cry: New Dawn | Done

Despite my annoyance at the ending of Farcry 5, I decided to take a little time off the game and then jump into New Dawn.  I finished July 2021, after I successfully defended my dissertation.I started off thinking that this was m'eh game, probably disappointed from the ending of FC5, but in the end, it was pretty solid. Started at the end of March, put it away until July when I binged it.The post-apocalyptic

Farcry 5 | Done

A little more catch-up on games finished in the past year. This one I finished March 2021I picked this game up right after I finished Farcry 4. After being conditioned for the past two farcry games to seek out towers so that I can clear up the map (not to mention more than a handful of assassin's creed games), I had a big guttural laugh when I went to the first tower, climbed it, cleared it, and then

Halo Television Series

 Another adaptation I can't wait for :-) I wonder if they'll dive into the books as a source for information or if they'll do their own thing. I am a bit behind on all of the Halo books...I haven't read one since 2014...Maybe in 2022 I'll rectify that ;-)

Splinter Cell Remake in the works!

 OK, this made me more giddy than I thought I would be :-)I love the Splinter Cell Universe and I hope that this proves to be a successful remake.  I wouldn't mind a television version of Splinter Cell, exploring the various video games and novels that have come out over the years :-) I remember playing this originally on my PowerBook G4 (bought the boxed copy of the game at the local Apple
