What I've been playing.
June 03, 2010

I wasn't going to buy Red Dead Redemption after GTA IV disappointed and enraged me, but so far this is a superior game. But then, I did like GTA IV at first, too, so I'm purposefully taking my time with this one, not rushing through the missions, and hoping that if I don't over do it, I'll still enjoy it. I don't get much time to play games now, anyway, so my progress is mainly limited to weekends. I loved getting an achievement for placing a tied up woman on the railway tracks and waiting for the train to splatter her blood ever. I think I would have done that without an achievement... because I really am dastardly, and I did the appropriate "Mwahahahahahaha!" as it happened. It did take quite a bit of work, though. First I had to kidnap the girl and get away from my pursuers, who weren't too happy about it. Then I had to find the damn train on my map, and make sure I was in front of where it was going to be.

Then I waited. Totally worth it.

I've also been playing Forza 3 on easy mode, but it might actually be a bit TOO easy. And I never thought I'd say that about a racing game. But damn, I'm enjoying winning each race with a 20 second lead on the guy in second place. It can't just be that my car is good. I mean, damn. And then I decided to zoom around a corner recklessly, and it BREAKED appropriately. So now I just hold the accelerator and steer. Yeah, this is insultingly easy. If not for the fact that I enjoy getting achievements this easily, I'd probably put the difficulty up a notch. Perhaps later. But, the thing is, I always hit a wall in these sorts of games, where it just gets too hard. I've never gotten to all the real race cars. I hope to, this time. Even if I drooled my way in there like a zombie.

Infinite Undiscovery... played the first hour or two, so far. Wish I had more time, but it's slow, feels a bit clunky, and... it's not nearly as mediocre as I thought it'd be. It has some promise.

What I haven't been playing... The Last Remnant. Saw it going cheap, snapped it up, will play it when time permits. Probably not until IU is finished.
