Game log

Sticking to my pledge that I must finish a game before i pick up a new one, I planned on making a concerted effort to finish FFXV

I entered the final chapter, after completing the 2 available DLC’s, and had my arse handed to me! Scarpered back to the open world to level up and do a bit of fishing 🙂

Loved the DLC backstories, although have Ignis’s still to play through, and the option to switch characters in battle makes it so much more interesting that sometimes I don’t even use the ring of Lucil 😉


New house with faster unlimited internet so went back to my passion, getting my arse kicked on Street Fighter V online 🙂

Grinning through each fight, learning from my defeats, gone back to Ken to get up to speed. This works out OK until i meet anther Ken… it seems like a Barbie convention at times 🙂

As a gamer who doesn’t have much time to invest I really disapprove of Capcom’s model of earning / paying for new characters; if i didn’t enjoy the game so much I’d have ditched it by now, fuck them.


My darling wife doesn’t like my boy to watch fighting games (kicking and punching men as she calls it), so i spent an hour with him playing PaRappa the Rapper 2.

I beat all my expectations and worked through to the fifth level without loss, shit yeah,
this could be the next game I complete!

The boy loved the songs and animation too, perhaps a better choice of title for toddlers?

Then I’ve been distracted by the remastered Modern Warfare campaign… I forgot how well scripted the story is, loved the challenge and variety of the missions, it brought back so many fun memories of the crew i used to play with on xbox live… but I just couldn’t motivate myself to begin All Ghillied Up


For quick games I’ve been jumping on Overwatch to play the festive Yeti game… I make an abominable snowman, and also the odd game of Rocket League


& I’ve recently discovered Live Coding, more on that soon 🙂

Return of the 13th fantasy

This weekend I’ve started playing FF-Xiii-2, after grinding through the first one I was a little reluctant to begin the sequel. The graphics are more easy on the eyes than ever, and I love the lullaby like theme.

Watched the ‘Begginer’s Primer’, it brought back fond memories, and I swear I had something in my eye 😉

The quick time events work well, and the plot seems more love story than ever, but as cheesy as Cheddar and simply out there.

I am really quite stoked that Square Enix are still making these games, and I wonder if after playing through this story i may be tempted to try the MMO?
