Well, yay me. I’ve got writer’s block. I honestly have gone through my list of topics I want to write about, and I’ve got nothing left. I hoped that I would have another game to review for you by now, but the games I’ve downloaded and tried lately haven’t captured my attention enough for reviews, and I’ll explain why in a minute. In short, this is going to be a quick update as to what I’ve been doing, and also to ask if there’s anything you would like me to write about!
First off: the games I haven’t finished. I rarely play a game without finishing it, but I guess when that game is free, there really is no incentive. I guess part of the problem is that I’ve tried playing games, but then I get bored because I have another similar game that’s just better. For example, I can’t finish Don’t Starve. I’ve given up. I don’t find it very fun, and frankly, I’d rather play Minecraft. I downloaded Blacklight Retribution, and although it’s fun, there are a couple reasons I can’t review it just yet, which I’ll explore in detail later. In short, I think I’d rather play Halo because of the superior gunplay. BR’s gunplay is kind of finnicky; loose at times, tighter at times.
Then there’s Zelda: Four Swords. It was a free download from the Nintendo eShop. I never have played a Zelda game, and although I’d like to try A Link Between Worlds, I don’t want to play it badly enough to buy it at its current price. Anyhow, the only reason I got Four Swords is because it was free, and I’m very glad. It’s not necessarily dull or boring; I’m just confused as to how to progress through the levels. I reached one pint where I inspected every single pixel of the area, then I reloaded the level, and still found nothing. It’s just not worth it! So, I think I’ll bite the bullet and actually buy a 3DS game. Pokemon X or Y might be up next.
Back to consoles, I am going to begin Gears of War today (the original) and I’m moderately excited about it. I’ve heard great things about the franchise, and it looks like a game that will appeal to me. I’ll also be finishing the download of Blacklight Retribution, but as I mentioned before, I’m not sure if a review will ever happen. First of all, it’s still in beta, so I have no idea how long it’ll still be in beta, or how the game will change (if at all) once it comes out of beta. I don’t want to review unfinished games, though I may do a basic overview. On the other hand, although I can play Retribution, I only have one map available. As I play, there’s an in-game download that’s going on, so I hope it’s just downloading more maps (maybe the initial download was just the basics to get me to start playing). IF not, I have to see if they must be purchased, which I don’t want to do, and I will not do.
Also, Outlast comes out tomorrow for the PS4, and I’m really excited! I hate horror, but at the same time, the only horror game I’ve played recently was Slender: The Eight Pages. It was spooky, but Outlast looks like a completely different kind of spooky; it looks flashier and less minimalist. I’m going to see how I like it, though I probably will hate it. I might not be able to finish the game due to my wimpiness, so there may not be a review of it either. Oh well XD
Finally, I need some help. If you have any topic that you’d like to see my opinion on, let me know! Maybe you’d like to do a side-by-side article where we get to show the readers two different opinions on the same topic; that would be pretty cool. In any case, let me know if there’s anything you can think of, as I would appreciate any ideas at the moment.
Until Next Time
