From Prey to Predator

I want to apologize. It’s been too long. I wanted to update the blog at least once a month. I have failed in doing so. I’m going to force myself to change; I would like to update every week. I’m going to try and start updating weekly from now on. Let’s get you caught up. I had an unpublished post, so let me give you the cliff notes from that post.

Minecraft. I put in some serious time in that beast. I won’t go into too much detail, but I finished all of my major projects on the server. My island and house is complete. The wall is complete. The rail bridge expansion is complete. The “Sky House” is complete. I’m satisfied. I have plans on making a video to give you a tour. The only thing stopping me is time.

Mario 3D World. I’m finished with that game. I didn’t finish all of the levels, nor do I have plans to complete them. My opinion of the game has been tarnished because of the “secret” levels after defeating Bowser. Most of those levels are frustratingly difficult, and they are not fun to play. Some of the levels implement ludicrous time limits, and other mechanics to poorly test “skill.” It’s an embarrassment to call some of these levels a “Mario” level. That’s all I will say on the game.

Titanfall. I bought the game. I love it. It reminds me of the good-old-days of first person shooters; the days of Unreal Tournament and Quake. It’s very fast paced, the levels are expertly designed, and there are giant robots that you can control if you so desire. What else do you want? It’s so much fun, and I wish that I had more time to dedicate to it.

Playstation 4. I bought one. I went to the store, and there was one on the shelf, and I bought it. It was a week before Infamous Second Son came out, so good timing. I’ve played a bit of Second Son, and it’s fun. It’s not revolutionary, in any sense of the word, but if you liked the other Infamous games, I think this game will bring you more enjoyment. It’s definitely graphically pleasing to the eye. I took a little break from it because of Diablo 3.

Diablo 3. Its expansion, Reaper of Souls, came out last month… I think. Nope, March 25th. A lot of time has passed. I tried looking up how many hours I’ve put into it since the expansion was released. Raptr changed their interface though. I would guess over 100 hours. Maybe closer to 150 hours. I’ve been averaging about 15 to 25 hours a week. I’m working on a write up about Diablo 3, so look forward to that. In fact, I’m going to shoot to have that be my post next week.

That’s what I’ve been playing for games. I a have a few other things I’d like to share, but I’ll save it for another post, because it’s not really game related.
