Just a short one for you this week. Rumours that it’s because we’re all out Christmas shopping buying family and friends games that we know they won’t want but we do are totally unfounded and we don’t condone such behaviour.
Aside from my usual Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2 online sessions I’ve actually been playing with my PS Vita a little. Old favourite across many platforms, Plants vs. Zombies, has probably seen the most action but Treasures of Montezuma, Fuel Tiracas and Treasure Park have also been exercised when time is short.
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. I just want to play my games! *shakes fist*
It all takes too long when you’re trying to grab a moment’s gaming while you have it and those big grey screen-filling system dialog boxes are too ugly.
I’m not the only one with something to moan about this week as Chris has had an interesting time getting his game on too:
Grabbed Sony’s Planetside 2 from Steam, the 10GB download took quite a while and when I downloaded it, I couldn’t sign in. The Steam download version required a Sony ‘Station’ login, but wasn’t accepting my details because here in the EU a ProSieben account was required for Sony titles…
This left me stuck in a URL redirect loop, with the 10GB game I’d downloaded not compatible with either of my login details as the Steam download only accepted ‘Station’ login details. Not having any more spare download allowance for the month I was pretty angry. Some people weren’t being faced by this problem though and I managed to get in without having to wait to re-download it with the help of JamboGT signing me up.
I’m not really sure what’s happening in the game though, other than I’m dying a lot. Perhaps I should watch some tutorial videos? It seems good though.
Sounds like it might need a tutorial video just for signing up! Aran has completed Shadows of the Damned and while he enjoyed it he feels that the last part was just a little too easy after the build-up throught he rest of the game.
He’s still eager for a sequel though having really liked the game’s environment. All he’d change is to “tone down the objectifying of women a little”.
Having picked up Bastion for a bargain 600 Mickey Mouse Points in Xbox Live’s 10th Anniversary sale he commends pretty much everything about the game “from the style, the music and the gameplay”. Near the end already he’s just trying to wrap up the Vigil challenges.
Tuffcub brazenly admitted this week to having piles. Piles of unfinished games that is, a problem he’s certainly not alone in having. He’s making a concerted effort to “doggedly plough through them”. He made a schoolboy error though, the game at the top of the pile was Skyrim. How’s it going? ”78 hours and counting… *sigh*”.
Are you trying to do something about your piles so they don’t trouble you over the holidays?
