Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
I pulled it out tonight, after a year's hiatus, and restarted the game from the beginning. I'd remembered it being good, but I hadn't remember just HOW good. This game is incredible, easily one of the best of all time, in my book.
Anyone know where i can get the music from?
I'm off tomorrow to see my film premiere, so we'll see you guys again Sunday.
I'll post more information on my film in another post.
You know how there's always that game that you've been meaning to play, you know you'll enjoy, but for whatever reason, you never pick it up?
For years, that game for me has been God of War II. I really liked the first one, despite some issues with repetition and a terrible final boss encounter. I hear the second one was even better.
I was reading a blog on dreams, and it reminded me of some of my own. Sometimes I have dark, sinister dreams. There's one I had recently which I haven't been able to get out of my head, it was so impactful. It's pretty graphic and sexual, so if you're not into that sort of thing, back away now.
The meat of it was that I ended up in a room with a beautiful naked woman who begged me to masturbate her using one of those mini-chainsaw knives that people use to cut turkey. Curious, I obliged, and then I turned the knife on inside of her. As her blood began to pour out of her nether regions, she just kept laughing and laughing. The dream ended around the time the knife had cut through her stomache and was going in and out, in and out.
Er... don't judge me!
Did I mention unskippable cutscenes?
I'm going to start posting notes to developers, in the hopes that one day I will compile all of them into a little book and sell it as a "how to NOT do" guide.
Developers, pay note!
Does your game have unskippable cutscenes? If so, why? Unless your cutscene is good enough to make me orgasm each time I watch it, there is no reason that I shouldn't be able to skip it. If you MUST be pretentious, make me watch it the first time, but STOP mixing long unskippable cutscenes with the hardest fights in the game. Oh, GOD it hurts.
Still playing through Legendary. At this point, it would be hard for the game to change my opinion much. I've played enough of the game to get a solid idea of where it's at.
So now I'm just trying to finish it. I'm hoping to have it done by Wednesday of next week, though I'm on hard and there are some extremely difficult sections that slow me down.
Plus I've got my movie premiere this Saturday, so I'm pretty much shot for that day.
In any case, I'll save the rest of my comments for the review. Not as bad as I first thought, though.
Playing through Legendary. It's pretty bad. An interesting premise that just doesn't go anywhere, and goes nowhere fast.
Some surprisingly good scripting, though. Not dialouge, I mean scripted events. And some cool monster designs. Especially the Griffons.
