Back in November of 2018 I tried out a game called "Dark" on my xbox 360. I had been going on a binge of games that are not backwards compatible to the xbox one, so I thought I'd give this a try.The reviews for this game were bad...quite bad! (Metacritic score of 38%). But the price was right (next to free...) and the concept seemed like an interesting concept: The game follows the story
Assassin's Creed Origins | Done
I don't know when I started this game (sometime last summer), but (for now) it concludes my binging of the assassin's creed series on the Xbox (and I can say that I am 'all caught up' - at least as far as video games go - yes I wrote this last summer and I didn't bother updating this initial text 😝). The game starts off with the last of the Medjay -an elite group of warriors who were serving
Kingsway OS - the RPG OS
OK, not really an OS, but an RPG in the style of an old GUI OS... pretty interesting!
Reminds me a lot of my own experiences managing my inventory in games..LOL (from this week's comic strips)
Watchdogs | Done!

Well, one more game completed before 2015 is done! I started playing Watchdogs on the xbox back in August, before the semester started, and it's taken me well into the end of the semester (almost the end of the year) to complete it. I ended up doing many side-missions in the game, but I think after six months of slowly picking away at it, I just wanted to make sure I finished the main

With the storms that have hit over the past week came school closings, and with school closings came a little extra time on my hands. I did spend a considerable amount of this extra time catching forward with my readings for my research methods course, but I guess I also used the time "wisely" to complete another game on the xbox. Over the Christmas break Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was on
Diablo III | Done!

[spoilers] Over the weekend I had the opportunity to complete Diablo III on my xbox, yay! I've been looking forward to this game since I heard about it last year, however I only bought the thing this past August when it came out for xbox, the price was right, and it included the Reaper of Souls expansion. I've been playing it over the weekend ever since I came back from my doctoral orientation
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD | Done

Right before I went on vacation I downloaded Assassin's Creed Liberation HD for the xbox 360 ( I think it was on sale). I started messing around with it at the time, but I really didn't get very far. Upon returning I started playing through this portable game upscaled to home console.The story follows Aveline de Grandpre, an assassin in the making. Aveline is an orphan, living with her
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag | Done!

Just in time to end my holiday break and get back work, I completed Assassin's Creed 4! I ended up getting AC4, like my previous 2 AC games, on Amazon.com's Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals for a reduced price. I could have waited a few more months to get the game at less than half the price (factoring in a used cost), but I got it new for $30. Not too bad!I liked this game quite a lot both
Mass Effect 3 | Done!
Woot! I was able to complete the Mass Effect Trilogy before going on vacation! :-) First the Good points about the game. The character I had fun mass effect 2 transferred over into mass effect 3. NICE! I think I started playing as a level 25. I am not sure but I think I decided to pick the infiltrator class again. This was pretty nifty. The story line and the direction was pretty awesome as well.
One of the used games that I got last Christmas, and which I finally completed, was Crackdown. It wasn't on top of my list, but since I have a friend who wants to revisit it, I thought I'd better finish it so I can loan it out :-) The main idea of the game is that there are three crime syndicates in Pacific City, and you as the real bad-ass law enforcement office (from "the agency") are tasked
Alpha Protocol - Some final thoughts
I took opportunity of daylight savings (or whatever the heck it's called in November) to get an extra hour of game play in and finish up Alpha Protocol for the xbox360. I honestly don't remember what setting I started playing the game on (maybe easy?) but the game didn't take that long to finish (at least compared to other games).XPlay didn't give the game that great of a review, it was only
