#7FaveGames

So, I was surfing

twitter-logo

today and the tag popped up. (You know, the title of this entry?) #7FaveGames.

So you know I had to participate, right? Well, I posted it on Twitter (did I ever post my twitter name on here?) and thought why not share it here as well? I am pretty sure y’all can figure out most of it from my posting and what not (well at least TWO of them) but I figured maybe I could make life easier and just post the list here.

Now, to save y’all’s time, I just put the list and compounded the pictures I wanted to use into one thing. But I almost did it like a proper list with explanations and talking stuff. But that is the thing about Twitter and these things. It is supposed to be easy. It isn’t supposed to have explanations. For wordy people like me, it is hard. So I am going to try to stick with that this time. You have been spared. (Plus I am now working on a thing about morality in games, thanks to a ‘comment’ discussion I had gotten in that was a lot of fun.)

Don’t forget to tell me your top 7!

Here we go!

Zelda
Dragon Age
Assassin’s Creed
Professor Layton
Fable (1,2, and 3)
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Pokemon

Behind The Times: Assassin’s Creed 2

storia-assassin-creed-2

Told you I’d do one.

Anyways, let me just say that first off, I LOVE Ezio’s character! He is very charming yes, but as a person/character, I find him appealing as well. He has a lot of charisma and he seems to have so much to go as a likable person. He has a strong connection with his family and it seems to motivate him greatly.

And even though it lead to him wanting revenge, in the end he realizes some truth and does something most people wouldn’t do.

LOVED IT.

By the way…

Oh yeah. I finished this game last night! I am currently working on Brotherhood! Still with Ezio, so I am super excited. But there is a lot of Des-

You know what, that can be another entry.

Let’s just sit with the amazingness that is Assassin’s Creed 2. Because seriously – THAT ENDING!

I was sitting there and when the credits started to roll, I had the same reaction as Desmond. He literally was like “What. The. F***.” Because – I don’t want to spoil it for the few that haven’t played it – there was some very interesting twists with the ending.

And then I waited, in shock. Because I was like “No way did they end it there-”

And then there was more talking. And a little more action. ^.^

Can I say that I am huge supporter of Desmond and Lucy? Yes. (And for those who are like “Oh dear, you don’t even-” Yes, I even. I know. I know what happens with them and it saddens me, but I am okay with it. But for now, let me have my little headcannon. Because really… such a shame. *laughs*)

I wish they didn’t have the credits during that ending stuff, because I was like “it’s blocking my view!” but I can also see why they did it.

BTW, I got all of the Seals and I got all of “The Truth” video. Seriously, man… awesome. Just wow. ❤

It Has Been A While My Friend….

I know. I just about dropped off the edge of the Earth, right? Okay, here is an update:
I was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. I know you have already heard about that enough from me.

I tried that Unwritten Tales game…. I have to admit.. not a fan. Not in the least. Nix. Sorry. I disliked it so much that it is now up for sale on eBay.

So… what I have been doing is also playing….

storia-assassin-creed-2

HOOKED! Love it. I am trying to get as much done as I go along. Getting most of the city finished before doing story quests, or do a story quest here and there but mostly getting everything done in the city. Also building up the Villa and whatnot as I go along.

And I LOVE IT! I knew it was awesome but never watched everything. I never realized how charming Ezio as a character was. He’s even cooler than I had believed. So that is my update. I am working on the Assassin’s Creed series, I will probably keep working on my FULL PLAY THROUGH OF ALL QUESTS with Dragon Age: Inquisition in between Assassin’s Creed games, and will probably give updates as I go along.

But ….

I’m sorry. Please do not play that Unwritten Tales game. Well, maybe. I just – I like just about most games. But for some odd reason, this one just did not sit with me. I am unsure what it is. I can’t say it was too much talking, because I obviously don’t mind the talking in games (sometimes enjoy it more than most people). Just…. Not sure.

I used to have a “Behind the Times” tag… I think maybe I should do an entry for Assassin’s Creed 2 using that tag. We’ll see.

Well, Okay Life…

So, as of now, Life is Strange gameplay is:

delayed

Gaming is an expensive habit. But seriously, things come up and I had to hold off… (My preorder is still there… for 5 days! And even if I don’t get it within them, I have a feeling it will be okay) but luckily I have a LOT of games to play!

I still have my Dragon Age: Inquisition, but if all else fails and I cannot have access to PS4 (things happen man…) I can still play:

2527460-8436537406-3561

I haven’t started it yet. I finished the first, and this is another one on my list. I was going to say Tomb Raider – but that is another PS4 game. Still… I need to work on that as well.

I have A LOT of games. I do. My husband just thought it would be good if I recorded a newer game for YouTube along side the ones I have been doing. Eh, we’ll see.

(Still itching for Life is Strange. Let’s  hope something happens and I can get it soon.)

Altair and Uncharted – The Struggle

First off – I haven’t been on much. I know. Okay, I HAVE been on, but I haven’t been WRITING.

Big difference, I know.

First, let me say I have been ill. Secondly, I have been making progress on TWO games:

Assassin's Creed

Uncharted

Seriously. The bottom one y’all know I am doing my YouTube videos for. The top one is when I need to take a break and just get some consistency and less *gasp* and heart jumping.

Can I say something about this guy:

altair

HE DOES NOT LISTEN! I have had so many struggles just YELLING at him! “Don’t go that way!” “No you idiot! I said CLIMB that.” “Don’t DO THAT! I just-” “Run you idiot RUN!” “ARE YOU KIDDING!” “You were supposed to jump on that-that-”

My favorite one so far:

“You’re supposed to be one of the BEST ASSASSINS and you can’t even DEAL WITH WATER??”

Just seriously. I have had so many moments where I am just RAWR at him and my husband comes out of his gaming room to see what in the world I am doing. Frustration I tell you! I never realized how much of a “Guy” Altair is! He just doesn’t listen! Doesn’t follow directions!

(In case you can’t tell, there was  little joke. No, I’m not hating. Just… it was funny when I thought it. C’mon, have some humor. I am a female Asian and I make driving jokes all the time.)

Just seriously.

But I truly think I am getting close to the end! I have Lucy telling me all about the Pieces of Eden, and I have been reading emails, and that coded message Lucy got – We will be there soon – and just… something is GOING DOWN. I am very excited. I cannot wait! Gwah! I have heard what the ending is many times. But some of it is starting to make sense and it is just-

I am excited. What can I say. I have been recording my playing so far, and what I will probably do with it (Because most don’t like seeing gameplay from the original Assassin’s Creed because it is too repeatitive) is a “Last time on Assassin’s Creed…” and then lead to Assassin’s Creed 2.

Speaking of videos:

Yeah, I posted another one. Hence the whole “Uncharted” part of this section. Now, gameplay wise, I am a little farther in the game. (Probably a lot farther.) But I had to work with adding my voice and such to that.

(I have a new mic that has MUCH better recording quality and I love it and I… don’t think talking about it fits much here.)

But this game… I really need to keep playing it so I don’t forget how to handle it. But I also realize that I need to have more then one game series going on, and I was hoping for Assassin’s Creed to be the other series going on. I just… I have to get past the first batch.

Drake may not listen to me as much as I would like him to, but at least it is better than Altair!

The struggle is real people! And it causes me to die! In game of course.

I will try to keep updating in regards to gaming and my first time experiences with these older games. Behind the times, but catching up! Loving this!

Did you experience as much frustration as much as I did when playing these games? I would love to know I’m not alone.

Current Games…

There are two games I am playing right now and working on for the YouTube Channel!

First off, let me start with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune –

06-27-2012_uncharteddrakesfortune01

Amazing! I am highly enjoying the “Treasure Hunter” type feel, but the guy is completely different then I thought he would be: He is hilarious. He is a bit like a normal guy – and he gives this feel of a “book nerd” that was determined to prove a point. He knew he was right, and then worked on making sure he had the stamina for the adventure. I am probably completely off, but that was how he made me feel. And I enjoy it!

I found myself laughing so much at some of the lines and the dialogue. Fantastic. Only thing that kills me: SHOOTING THE DARN PEOPLE. I mean, I am not the best shot (and I have a couple of trophies for headshots on the game) but sometimes it feels like it is never ending with these things! And… I recently got to a point where the-the possessed monk looking things freak me out. And the red lights going off and I’m underground.. *shivers* Freaked. Me. OUT.

You hit the twist in the story line, and I am just so caught up! I also have been playing it like days straight when I can. (Technically for over a week, but it is only for a few hours a day. This Holiday Weekend though I got a lot of time in.)  I need to edit my voice section, and I’ll have quite a few videos ready! (Seriously, I can do like weekly or bi-weekly updates at this point with how much I did.)

I don’t think I’m near the end, but I could be wrong! I may be close to the end with this game… and I am ecstatic for the next ones! Seriously. Once I get over this whole shooting thing (I’m getting better darn it!) I’ll be set! And I don’t know why they keep trying to tempt me with other guns. I am sticking with the two I have thank you! I do so much better with them.

With all the excitement and on the edge and the OHMIGODWHATWASTHAT and STAYAWAYSTAYAWAY AH!! things I was doing, I had to do something else to just wind down.

So, I started Assassin’s Creed yesterday. Here’s my go:

1280px-assassins_creed_logo-svg

I know, I know. People are like “Just skip this one and jump to the next! Watch the ending on YouTube!”. But GUYS, I want the FULL experience! I hear that Altair is still one of the best characters! There are a lot of people who like him!

Plus, I have to adjust to the system for this sucker. I am not a pro and need that adjustment time. Darn it. *laughs*

“But it’s SO REPETITIVE!” <– Quote my husband.

But you know what? I am perfectly fine with that. I need some repetitiveness in my life in my game right now. Beating people up and helping the underdogs, yeah… I can do that.

And some of the fun stuff and things in the details … a lot of people have missed it or something. I enjoy it. I won’t be killed by it. It is interesting to hear some of the conversation.

And I have decided: I am doing all the stuff in the city that I can before I even do story stuff. I want to save all the citizens, do all the pick-pocketing, do all the eavesdropping, as well as the “interrogations” before I do story stuff. I don’t want to get cut off from it. I’m getting good at it darn it!

And I FINALLY got Counter Attacks! You have no idea how much better I felt when I could Counter Attacks! I usually just stay in protective positions and wait for counter attack strikes. Get hurt less that way – or so I hope. ;P

Almost died once. I was like “No, no way. There is absolutely no way I can die…” and somehow saved myself by blocking enough. Whew!

Don’t worry, I will not post a whole walkthrough for Assassin’s Creed. I am just going to piece the main parts together and that will be it. My main video focus right now will be all my Uncharted ones.

Firsts in two great series – Not bad for a start I’d say. Not bad at all.

What were your favorite games/series? What about your favorite part of these two games?
