All About Domstercool
So that's another year finished. I don't know why but the older I get the faster the year just shoots by. I use to wish when I was smaller that time would hurry up; now I wish it would just slow down a bit. I want to play all these great games, especially a year like this which has had some many good games that I think I spent hundreds trying to buy them all, and still didn't manage to get all I want.
If you remember I was doing a challenge to see if I could finish off 50 games before the year came to an end and well I guess I kind of did and didn't make it in some sense. I know I certainly should have spent more time on single games. I just couldn't help it though when I got a brand new game in the post that was suppose to be awesome. Don't worry though; Assassin's Creed didn't spend long in my 360, god I nearly fall asleep playing that game. It likes to repeat over and over again, kind of like when an RPG changes the colour of the baddies to make them "different". Assassin's Creed just changes the people you are suppose to kill, but does the same stuff following up to that. Ah well, maybe the sequel will learn from that mistake.
So the games I finished with recently are:
Jackass: The Game (Didn't buy it, was a review copy)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Bone: Out from Boneville
Tekken: Dark Resurrection/Online (Finished it with all characters!)
So that makes 37 games finished for the year. That's pretty far off really. I needed to finish off 13 more to make the 50 mark. I was just sitting here thinking about something. What if I added the games that I finished on the 360, but didn't get 700 or more achievement points, would that make up to 50? So I sat down and through about all the 360 games I'd done. This is what I came up with.
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (Wasn't half bad in co-op!)
Earth Defense Force 2017
Virtua Tennis 3
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Rainbow Six: Vegas
So yep, the final count is 47 games. I've just missed the target by three games! Oh so close! To be honest through I think I've learnt something about myself from this little challenge, that I have a very bad habit of buying too many games and playing between them all, rather than focusing at one of a time. I never use to be like that, I guess that is what money does to you when you've got it in front of you to buy all the games you want.
I guess these leads to my New Year Revolution, which is to try and focus on a smaller amount of games at once. It be interesting to see how many I actually complete in 2008 when I try to stick to this. There's not going to be a challenge this year, but I'm still going to match it up to 2007 and see if the results are a lot different or not.
Well have a good 2008 and remember to play lots of games! Oh and if you want to know what my top five games of 2007 were then here they are.
Super Mario Galaxy
Call of Duty 4
As I write this the date is December 6th 2007. That's only19 days to Christmas and only 25 days till the end of the year. I guess my challenge looks like it's going to win over me. I'm not going to give in though! I'm going to fight to the end! I shall try and get 50 done before the year is over. I've gotten so many games over the past month though it is unreal. One week I got 8 games in the post at once. I've just been overwhelmed with them that I never know which one to play, kind of an evil position to be in. It's probably one of the reasons why I'm behind in my list, that and I've got some weird feeling about 360 games. I've got to get 700 or more points in the game if I've finished it already and didn't reach 700. Don't know why; just want to have some points from the game! I'd probably be pretty near the target or past it by now if I didn't have that to do.
So the games I've finished since the last time I posted are:
Sam and Max Season 2 Episode 1: Ice Station Santa
Call of Duty 4
Unreal Tournament 3 (Single Player Campaign)
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
That makes it 32... 18 to go, erk, oh dear oh dear!
Just a quick update here as I have to get back to play games!
There's a new review up, can read it at this link http://uk.gamespot.com/ps2/rpg/persona3/player_review.html?id=506134
On the game completion side of things I've manage to finish these games:
Persona 3 (Woo brilliant as hell, as you can tell from my review)
Portal (Bloody comical genius of a game!)
Streets of Rage 2 (XBLA)
Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting (XBLA)
Half-Life 2 Episode 2 (Great stuff too!)
That makes it 26 now, finally past the half way mark! Oh god help!
