So after I Platinumed Marvel Heroes Omega (I still miss it), some people asked, “What’s next?” and I provided a list of games. Since I have nothing else really to talk about, I thought I’d provide an update on how I’ve done the past three months.
The list of games I said I would work on since September and their updates are as follows:
Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse – COMPLETED! Liked the story a lot better than I thought I would and the trophies weren’t too bad.
Minecraft: Story Mode – COMPLETED! What was this? Was bored to tears and wanted the game to just die.
Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan – COMPLETED! First to be completed off this list, as expected. Definitely one of the better Artifex stories, IMO.
Submerged – COMPLETED! This was actually kind of fun and relaxing to get all the trophies in. Nothing really profound to say about the story or difficulty, but I would definitely recommend this game on sale.
Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders – COMPLETED! Weird version of Poirot and a little clunky. Definitely recommend using a walkthrough, and good if you have 4-5 hours and want a completion.
Ratchet and Clank – COMPLETED! A really fun game to play. Love the hack and slash genre and, comparing it to the original, it’s a great improvement on it overall – story, controls, graphics, everything.
Firewatch – COMPLETED! An interesting little walking sim. A fun game with a somewhat creepy atmosphere until you realize nothing will jump out at you ever.
Grim Fandango – COMPLETED! I HATE tank controls. Other than that it was all right.
N.E.R.O. – COMPLETED! A little clunky, but not a bad little game.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture – Haven’t touched it since my post.
Final Fantasy VII – Haven’t touched it since my post.
The Bridge – started this game. It’s not too bad of puzzle game so far. Hopefully won’t take too long to finish this.
Final Horizon – I’ve done a little bit. Hit a frustrating point and almost snapped my Vita in half so I put it down for longer than I intended to :-P.
Goat Simulator – Same as Final Horizon. Hit a frustrating part (trophy glitched on me) and I haven’t picked it up since. Will hopefully find motivation to finish this.
Final Fantasy XV – I finished the story line! Took quite a while and I actually enjoyed this game more than I thought I would. There are some frustrations I have with the combat system, but overall I’m not totally unhappy with Final Fantasy: Bro Road Trip.
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens – This one has been fun with the 12 days of Christmas Challenge. I kind of glanced at it for the NOEL challenge, but really hit it hard on days 8, 9, and 10. It’s a co-op, action-adventure game with a fuckton of bronze trophies. It was perfect for knocking out 3 days of the challenge!
So overall, out of 16 games, I’ve completed 9 and made progress on 5 more. Not too shabby for 3 months’ worth of gaming. Because of the way holidays worked with my company, I have December 22 – Jan 1 off work so I’ll be hitting some more games and doing a lot more post-challenge. I don’t think I’ll have as good a December as last year, but I can try
December 2016 stats: 692 trophies; 18,690 Trophy XP; 1.17 Ratio; 21,875 TrueTrophy; 28 Games Started; 39 Games Played; 31 Games Completed
