Just thought I'd make another attempt at trying to keep my blog as up-to-date as possible, so here goes!
Lately has been a confusing time for me, especially when it comes to gaming. I've been rather reluctant to sink money into buying games for my PS3, mainly due to the fact that the next-generation hits at the end of next month. The thought of "Why bother at this point?" keeps crossing my mind. But I have been pushing that thought to the back of my mind, and to my delight it has been a good decision so far. So here's a compiled list of what I'm currently playing;
- Beyond: Two Souls -- A beautiful, amazing experience that I've been thoroughly enjoying, as I did Heavy Rain. I know a lot of people complain about these sorts of games, saying they're too detached and there's not enough gameplay to justify buying them but think of it this way; instead of complaining that it takes too much away from gaming, why not think that it adds another layer of depth and interaction to the movie industry? I'd much rather interact with this game in the way I do as opposed to sitting in front of my TV watching it.
- Remember Me -- A pleasant surprise to say the least! It might helped by the fact that I'd seen the reviews and didn't really expect much to be good about it but to be honest, I was frankly amazed at a few things. Predominantly, the look and atmosphere really grabbed me. This is a distinctive game, with the whole steampunk, ultra-modern world look has me intrigued. Also, the musical score is rather epic.
- Spec Ops: The Line -- I've been meaning to try this game for a long time now, and was actually tempted into buying on release. Many, many big releases later resulted in it being forgotten. But PS+ happily rectified that by offering it as a free game, and now here we are and the question posed would be "Why didn't I go for this in the first place?!". An awesome blend of easy, approachable shooting mechanics along with some very pretty environments and the fantastic Nolan North result in a very enjoyable experience. Not completed it yet as I've been juggling this and the other games on this list but watch this space.
Right, that's it for another blog post from me. I'll be sure to post an update as soon as anything big happens, thanks for reading!
