I gave both games we received for August through the PS+ program. I played both for a night each.
I did not get that far in Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. I did play it on Normal difficulty, and I got the point in the fifth mission where I am by myself. Which I really like playing Call of Duty games with the squad. Once I am by myself, my lack of skill is very well obvious. I choose to skip the Russian level, the game provides plenty of warnings about skipping it, and from what I looked up online, it does seem like something I rather not experience myself.
Fall Guys, though, was super fun. I played during the very first night of release. I only had two matches where I was disconnected from the server. I stayed up like 30 more minutes than I should have, but I really wanted to reach level 6. The game is super fun and the individual games are easy to learn. I do prefer the ones where I am playing solo, and not as part of the team. The team challenges, I just feel like I am being carried by the team, or I am barely contributing to the team.
I resisted buying the DLC with the costumes and some game credits, it was $10, but I like the idea of just wearing what I earn myself from the game.
Once they add split screen playability, I will probably go back, or if I read they have turtle costumes, I’ll dedicate some time to playing it, but I definitely enjoyed myself and who knows, I might go back. I have been making a new cycle of games to play, and my list is pretty deep.
. . .
I finally reached player level 20!
It would have been so much nicer on the eyes, if I had earned it with my 3333rd trophy, but that’s okay.
. . .
I also earned my 32nd Platinum trophy with The Council!
I really enjoyed the game. The game does take an odd left turn toward the end of Episode 4. Then it seemed to get back into its great historical fiction in Episode 5, but then it recommitted to the twist.
Not to spoil anything, but I made the poor decision to not to listen to my mother, and regret the ending I earned. Playing Episode 1 again, the game really does a great job of making a point to listening to Louis’ mother. So it really is on me that I chose to quit listening to her late into the game.
I really was loving the game, but some of the shine came off with the twist. It really reminded me of how much I was enjoying Dean Knootz’s Sole Survivor. I was really enjoying the mystery of it all, and then it took this science fiction twist that I was not expecting. Except, apparently, that is Knootz’s style, it that again was on me for not doing my research on the author. So only I would have found that to be a twist. But at the time, it just felt like a cheat.
I don’t feel cheated with The Council, but I was so enjoying the fictional history element of the story and it was a shame to see it go away.
I really liked the story base game with RPG elements, and I hope other company’s borrow the idea for their own games.
. . .
My next game I am hoping to focus on is Uncharted 4. That was my plan until Lego The Hobbit went on sale for six dollars, so I bought that along with the four DLC (two dollars each), for a total of $14. So I will attempt to play that first level tonight, and then I will complete Chapter 9 of Uncharted 4.
Typing about Lego games, Walker Dennis earned his second platinum! He stuck with it and earned the platinum for Lego Dimensions. We did not have to grind the puzzles like I was worried we were. His last trophy for the searching for a relic puzzle, but earned it during the final mission. I thought we were going to have to grind the Portal level of the main story, but we did not have to do that.
Though we are going to have to grind the game, as Walker really wants to have the dance party mode unlocked, and we need 480 gold bricks and we barely have 215 right now. I really thought we were going to earned it by beating the game, but it was not that easy. So we will keep playing and figure it out.
My plan for us is to play the 80s Ghostbusters level, Mission Impossible Level, and the Goonies Level, that way, he will have all of the trophies for the game that I have, and then we will tackle Fantastic Beasts’ six levels, and that should give us a slew of gold bricks. From there, who knows how we will tackle it. I am tempted to replay all of the story missions to gather up minikits, but mostly to rescue people, as those would be easy to earn gold bricks, and we will get closer to earning all minikits in the game. But we will have to play the game loads more, so that should be a fun time together.
Each hub world has around 28 gold bricks, so really, we just have to play five of those to earn 20 gold bricks each, and that will give us 100 gold bricks, so it is really only a matter of focusing and committing to the game.
