Light Our Darkest Hour

Well, another week has come and I’m better than halfway through Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.  If you’re a transformers fan at all you owe it to yourself to check out both this and the previous instalment.  From a game quality point of view both games had everything stacked against them — a franchise tie-in, part of the “Bayformers” canon, and published by Activision — but against all odds they have both ended up being fantastic games for any long-time Transformers fan.

I should have this one finished in fairly short order.  In the meantime, I offer you the following.  I hope you enjoy it!

 
Till all are one.

PROTOTYPE 2 or: “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bioweapon”

I was a big fan of the first PROTOTYPE and, while this one seems a little easier, I’m still thoroughly enjoying its sequel. I made it to the third area yesterday, the “Red Zone” a.k.a. Manhattan, and then decided that having the whole map finally available to me I would sit down, collect every collectable, and unlock every unlockable. Now that’s done and the game will likely be finished within the next day or two.

Sniper Elite V2 – For Whom The Bell Tolls (and other “humourous” references)

Here is my second installment in my rapid-fire, getting-the-ball-rolling series of initial posts.  This time I made use of advanced practices like “editing” to hopefully make the video a little more interesting to watch.  I also had an open mic this time instead of using push-to-talk, which may or may not make a difference as to the quality of my commentary.

Still enjoying the game, as might be obvious.  Though I get the impression that the enemy AI doesn’t really understand the concept of solid walls.  Also, gas tanks don’t explode like that unless someone specifically prepared them to do so in advance; if that is indeed the case the Germans might want to do more thorough background checks on their mechanics.

Arbitrarily failing the mission because you didn’t make absolutely sure there were no inconsequential soldiers left outside is pure dickery.

Sniper Elite V2 – Right In The Nose!

Sniper Elite V2 is the game that I most recently started, and will hopefully be the first that I finish on this blog.  I picked it up during the recent Steam summer sale, and I’m quite enjoying it so far, even if I’m half bad at it.  I’d absolutely want to try co-op mode but I don’t know anyone else who owns the game. =/

I recorded a short clip of myself playing the last part of what I seem to recall is the third mission in the game.  It’s my first attempt at uploading single player gameplay like this.  In future efforts I hope to do things like edit the video, and have actual commentary worth listening to.  For now, behold this lacklustre offering, in all it’s glory!
