Ah, it seems my near-six month of lethargy to open 2011 have disappeared and I'm in a writing mood. Which explains why I did reviews for two really old games last week. I have a few more 2600 titles lined up for potential reviewing, because the world needs to know how I feel about Dodge 'Em. Don't deny...you care. More than you care about your own life.
Anyway, I'm kinda playing four games bit by bit right now, since I like variety.
1. Red Faction Guerrilla: I'm in Eos lowering control before I do the plot missions. The Free Fire Zone didn't have much, but the one plot mission there was good fun, if a bit crazy at the beginning because of all the so-called ally vehicles getting in my way constantly. I've noticed that my guerrilla mission work has turned from "do as much as possible" to "do the kinds you have fun doing". Which is limiting it to transporter missions, the ones where you get a big piece of machinery to get into in order to kill a bunch of soldiers or take out their vehicles, the "take out this building" quests and the demolition ones that are fun. Since two of those are pure salvage ones, (or three...can't remember with one of them), I hope those plus destroying marked buildings is enough to dump control to 0.
2. Cthulhu Saves the World: Through Dunwich and the Swamp Cave. Ghost Forest is next.
3. Breath of Fire II: Did Capitan (town with monster-possessed townspeople in the well) last night after grinding to gain money for Windia's equipment.
4. Yoshi's Island: I'd tried this one many years ago, but got frustrated due to some stupid idea that I HAD to get 100 on every level so I could do each stage's bonus level. Not doing that now. Playing one level per day. Did "Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy" last night, which while cool, is very, very easy. 1-8 comes up tonight.
Kind of a nice deal I have now, where it's one action and one RPG on both my consoles and my computer. With this potential boost in activity, I might try for this years Alphabet Marathon after all!
