Monthend Video Game Wrap-Up – May 2018

Only two more weeks, and then I can go back to not feeling bad that I’m spending far less time studying than I should be.

~ Game Over ~

MGSV: Ground Zeroes (PC) – Completed the mission and… that’s only seven percent of the game!? Oh boy, it looks as if there’s much more to this than it first seemed!

Agatha Knife (Switch) – I thought there was going to be a stronger element of horror than there actually was. Turned out to be mostly comedic in tone. Still a fun adventure game.

Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4) – Even though I liked it overall, I’m mostly just glad that it’s over. Could have used a lot more dinosaur-based robots. Too many modern herbivores.

Beyond: Two Souls (PS4) – Story-based game about a girl and her ghost pal. Fairly boring and a real struggle to get through. The “Homeless” and “Navajo” chapters were pretty good, though.

MGSV: Ground Zeroes (360) – Played through again for a better rank, and was awarded an A. Then I did it again and again in a vain attempt to get an S rank. Didn’t happen 🙁

Mega Man 4 (Switch) – I bought both Mega Man Legacy Collections on Switch and this was naturally my starting point. Playing it without the slowdown or sprite flicker is a revelation.

Mega Man 10 (Switch) – Maybe it’s because I’m less familiar with it than the original sexology, but I’m not digging this as much as I did when it was new.

~ Now Playing ~

Ridge Racer V (PS2) – Initially played just to experience the “Jogcon” controller, I actually started getting into it once I flipped back to a regular control style. Who would have guessed?

Death Road to Canada (Switch) – Finally on Switch! Though I can totally see this ruining my chances of making any meaningful progress in life other video games or hobbies.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PC) – Speaking of ruining the potential for making meaningful progress in anything else…

Tales of Berseria (PS4) – TBH, it’s not gripping me the way I hoped it would. More like Tales of the Abyss than Tales of Symphonia, unfortunately. Ah well. I’ll keep pluggin’ away at it for now.

Sine Mora EX (Switch) – Played the first couple chapters. The time-slow mechanic is cool, but you need it to survive certain enemy bullet patterns, which bothers me a bit.

Pokémon Quest (Switch) – Freemium game about loot grinding. Not much of a game, though. Just set your ‘mons free and hope they survive. But hey, it’s Pokémon, so I’ll play it for a while.
