Keen – DayZ: Tales of the Coughing Bandit
DayZ is where I spent most of my time this week. I’ve written about most of my stories already, and even shown a video of a horrific death. One I haven’t told yet is the story of my sickness. Apparently they patched the ability to catch a cold if you’re out in the rain for too long. I didn’t realize this, stayed out in a storm, and became ill. My character proceeded to cough and lose blood continually for several hours while I scrambled around town trying to find one of the rarer items in the game: antibiotics.
While roaming I killed several players. I wonder if they knew me as the coughing bandit. I could tell they heard my coughing because they’d use voice coms talking to each other: “What was that coughing sound?” *bang bang* and I loot them up.
I finally found some antibiotics, cured my plague, and had one of the greatest arsenals I’ve ever had in DayZ: MP5 SD, Uzi, M16A2, alice pack, tons of food, meds, and ammo. No more than 30 seconds after I administered my cure I was sniped dead in one shot. Such is the way of DayZ.
Graev – Still rocking the sales, playing all sorts of games
I got a bunch of games during a Best Buy sale this week. I bought $135 worth of games for only $35. I picked up X-Men Destiny, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, and Final Fantasy 13-2. I completed X-Men Destiny and 100% it within a few days on the Xbox 360. It could have been a lot better, definitely not worth the full price, but worth the $9.99 I spent.
I’m now working my way through Assassin’s Creed Revelations to be caught up on the story and gameplay in time for Assassin’s Creed 3. Revelations is pretty good; standard AC feel and not all that different from the past two. The story is still convoluted–I find myself playing only for the gameplay. I wish it was all period based and didn’t have this scifi tie-in.
I also bought Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, but I think I told you about that last week. The music from all of the Final Fantasy games is so good. Right now I’m working on all the songs on expert, then there’s a master level after that plus a lot of stuff to unlock. You can put a lot of time into this game. I still definitely recommend it for fans of rhythm games and Final Fantasy music.
