Odds and ends for your tasting pleasure!
Guess what! I still don’t have a computer! But I do have my consoles, and I’ve been able to have some fun with my new year resolution.
This week, I became thoroughly frustrated with Final Fantasy III, fell back in love with Chrono Cross and started playing a seasonal game at the wrong season.
If you don’t follow GameTaffy on Facebook, you don’t know that my laptop died. It was tragic and depressing for everyone involved, but what can you do? Well, besides buy me a new computer…
Raiden is getting his chance in the spotlight with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and despite that incredibly stupid title, Platinum Games is making this ninja game just as over-the-top and fun as I want it to be.
Most of the time, the surest sign of a waste of time is a licensed game. Whether it’s based on a TV show or movie, these games take someone else’s intellectual property and barely attempt to make it interactive.
This week saw some changes to my Resolution. In order to get through this list, I’ve decided to only play Azure Dreams on the weekends. A luck-based endless tower is not worth jeopardizing the entire Play to Win series.
This week, two huge games launch, a violent survival-horror and a kid-friendly action platformer. But as I mentioned before, the game industry focuses too much on the M-rated games. Therefore, it’s time to put an E10+-rated game in the spotlight.
About mid-way through this week, I became so frustrated with the endless tower of Azure Dreams that I decided I would take a break and start beating some other games. It has been the best decision since I started this resolution.
If a video game makes money, that’s cool, and the publisher is usually pretty happy about that. However, if a game can make more money, then the publisher will be even happier.
Once again, I met my match, and now I’m playing a game that I’m not sure actually has an ending.
