So I thought I’d do this 30 day Video Game Challenge as something to fill in a bit of time each day (for at least a month), and get me in a habit of writing. Read the rest of this entry »

Six. That’s the number of platforms I have played Final Fantasy IX on. Originally released in 2000 for the PlayStation Final Fantasy IX has cemented itself as one of my favourite games of all time. And what has helped it is the ease with which I’ve generally been able to play it regardless of the fact I haven’t had a working PlayStation for nearly a decade. Read the rest of this entry »
So it’s kinda coming up to the end of my time at university. And as it stands I’ve got quite a bit of free time at the moment over summer in which to complete a bunch of games. Last year I completed:
- Mirrors Edge
- Half Life 2
- HL2 Episode 1
- HL2 Episode 2
- Modern Warfare 2
- Killzone 2
So just 7 games. Now this year I’ll be starting much earlier so I’m pretty sure I’ll easily beat that 7 this time around.
So I’ve ragging on at Microsoft Games for not seemingly having a clue at what they intend to do with Kinect and how they seem to be giving the impression they have no damn idea at all on what their market wants from them. Turns out Microsoft aren’t the only guys giving off some weird messages.
So I’m back to university in a few days which means available game time goes right down. So this is it for my completionist phase, which I didn’t do too well on, but was good to finally put what games I did manage to bed.
Yes I’ve been a bit lacking on this. But it is not my fault. Peer pressure made me do it! honest! So my main deviance has been that due to a fantastic Steam sale I picked up Borderlands & DLC and in a roundabout manner I got STALKER too. Those didn’t really help in completing the original pile. Also I ended up going back to InFamous for an Evil run through. Which I may write a small about here. But I’m maybe gonna go a bit more in-depth in a post later on either here or PressXorDie.
So to continue on from Half Life 2 I’ve nabbed my housemates 360 (as I mentioned in my last post) and raided the house for a ton of PS3 and 360 games. I’m just gonna blast through a ton of games, get them complete and out the way. However for the most part I’m avoiding RPGs, take far too long. But I will work on them after I’ve done this pile of games.
