It’s been a while since we did an Adventure Log, but given how many games we’re playing it’s probably a good idea to fill you in on some of our activities this past week.
It wasn’t long ago that I had nothing to play. I’d sit and watch movies or chat with friends wishing there was a game to take up what little free time I have. Now I feel like there are too many of them! I can play DOTA 2, Planetside 2, Black Ops 2, WoW, Guild Wars 2, and many more.
I’ve mostly been playing Planetside 2. PS2 is going really well. I can play for 30 minutes to an hour and make progress on my character while also participating in massive battles. I don’t have to log in and commit to a raid or a group, and I’m not wasting any time trying to make something happen. I like how I’m free to spend my points on anything and everything. I definitely wish I could respec some points, but for now I haven’t invested anything too deep that I can’t simply earn it again quickly. I had this one moment where I rolled up to an enemy base in a Lightning Tank and I killed 12 of them before running out of ammo and having to drive off. Probably the best I’ve done so far by myself. In a group, I was in the secondary seat of a Prowler and I spotted (Q Key) a massive bundle of players (easily 20+) hiding near a hill for my friend to then obliterate in a few shots — crazy points.
I’m looking forward to Darkfall which will hopefully launch soon. I’m itching for a really deep and involved MMO again.
I’ve been playing ZombiU and I really like it. I think reviewers were expecting a different game when they played it. It’s about surviving — you don’t want to get hit by zombies, so don’t complain when you die to one. Most of your deaths are probably going to be your own fault anyway. I didn’t find the difficulty to be that hard — definitely not Dark Souls hard at all — but more difficult than many games. I’ll write a review for ZombiU this week.
Black Ops 2 has taken the rest of my time lately. I have my moments, like everyone does, where I’m in the zone and I do really well. Yesterday I went 40-11. I really like the KSG shotgun, lightning tank, stealth chopper, and lode star.
