Time to Play Bastion + More of My Life

As I said in a previous post, I’verecently completed Sleeping Dogs and moved on to the DLC “Nightmare in North Point,” and lets just say that add on wasn’t was what I expected. Sure, it was funny and added some extra missions, but it was really short. I completed the entire thing in like an hour and a half. But I can’t complain much, after all, I did buy the game and the dlc back during Steam’s Spring Sale pricing error so in total I believe it was like $6 something. I got 18 hours of gameplay in total so I’d say I got more than my money’s worth.

I know I said I was going to go back into Soul Sacrifice but I’ve been rage quitting a lot in that game recently. I’m up to the mission where you have to solo a Cyclops, the most I’ve done was gotten it’s health to orange before I died. It’s the god damn spider’s and their annoying web skill that keeps fucking me up; the Cyclops’s spinning move doesn’t help neither. So instead I’ve decided to just tackle another game on my Steam backlog, I decided on playing Bastion, a game I picked up during a humble bundle deal(by the way, the game plays like ass with mouse and keyboard in my opinion.) I don’t think I’ll be playing much this weekend because I have my final scene due Tuesday for my acting class and I still don’t got my lines memorized, plus there’s also some writing work I got to do as well for that class.

On another note, RIT finally got my transcript so all that’s left now is for them to review my application. I don’t think I mentioned it before but I applied for game design and programming. I spend most of my time doing game related things, so I figured I might as well make a living out of making games. Yes, I know making games and playing them are two completely different things but honestly nothing else inspires me so yea. Hopefully I get accepted, it’s a really expensive school, plus I’d have to move and live on campus since I live in NYC, but I’ll worry about that once I know if I got accepted or not, NYU already rejected my application so I’m pretty bummed out about that.

Almost Done with Sleeping Dogs Main Story

I’m about two missions away from finishing the main story, boy what a ride it’s been. The game does have some weird little issues, like a few bugs here and there and the “girlfriend system” which is nothing more than little awkward missions(and one makes Wei look like a stalker). Luckily I have one of the DLC’s, the zombie one. Which I’m happy I bought since I’m not quite ready to move on from this game. Most likely what I’ll do afterwards is give Soul Sacrifice my full attention as I’ve been neglecting that game recently. Two of my friends are already max level so I’m way behind(If I remember correctly both my levels combined equal about 40).

Oh yea, I just found out there’s only two more weeks of school left, when I originally thought there was actually 3 so you could imagine how excited I am about that. 😀

I Need a Wired 360 Control

While playing Sleeping Dogs I realized that a bunch of the console ported games I have for PC have crappy controls. Sure, I use my PS3 controller but that is also quite frustrating because of the shoulder buttons plus the constant charging from the PC messes up the battery(this has already happened to one of my previous controllers unfortunately). I couldn’t find a layout to my liking(360 style triggers and dpad and left stick placed where they are on the PS3 controller). I did want to get some fancy looking Razer controller but it was like 80 dollars and I’m not about to spend that much on a god damn control, honestly who has money like that for just ONE control? so I’ll just have to settle with the first party wired control, the good news is that it’s only 30 bucks on Newegg so that’s pretty sweet. I’ll order it tomorrow and hopefully it gets here by Friday or Saturday so I can use it during the weekend.

Sleeping Dogs Is Up Next

With me finally finishing 2 games in my backlog(Kingdom of Amalur & Sonic Generations) I feel like I’m up for an action game now, so I’ll be tackling Sleeping Dogs now. I played it a bit before when I originally bought it when steam accidentally had it on sale for like 90%(plus I bought the zombie DLC too). While I did enjoy the little I played I was in the middle of two other games so it was shoved to the back burner. Coincidentally, Sleeping Dogs will also be one of the PS3’s PS+ games for this month so if you don’t have it yet make sure to give it a go when it’s released.
