Gaming Progress: Short and Sweet
December 19, 2015

Over the last few days, I've been trying to race through a few titles so I can get some reviews out for them. So far I've managed to plow through one and partway through another.

Greed: Black Border (PC)
Beaten. I somehow trudged through its drawn out, tedious levels and defeated the final boss. So that's another one crossed off the backlog...

Shank (PC)
Started and immediately got into this brawler. It's pretty simple, as brawlers go, but it's also a lot of fun. Killing enemies with an undying chainsaw is pretty awesome. The last thing I did was kill some pot-bellied masochist named Denny.

Child of Light (PS4)
Started this and gained the ability to fly. Now if I can just locate a map... It's nice to play a newer turn-based RPG. It's been so long since I've actually touched one that wasn't decades old.

I'm glad to see the last two on that list are pretty good. I have Child of Light on Wii U, but I didn't get around to playing it and I had to delete it from my system memory to make room for other stuff. The next time I spend any serious money on this hobby, it needs to be on some hard drives instead of a bunch of games that I won't have room to install...

I've been wanting to play the two Shank games for years now, but for some reason never got around to it. They seem like fun games.

I'm nearing the end of the first Shank. It's a lot of fun, but it's awfully short (as expected; I can't see a beat 'em up like this lasting more than a few hours).

Child of Light would be a lot better with a map. You can secure a world map from what I understand, but there is no area layout. Since the game seems to be Metroid-ish, it's really annoying to not know where you've already been.
