Back to Basics

I have spent 6 months of Elder Scrolls Online-ing.  It ended last night.  Because of the solitary game mentality that subscription games give me I have not played much else.  As it ended yesterday I’ve been looking through my available collection, and because my physical collection is packed at the moment — that leaves Steam and any other digital versions of games I have.

I’ve been trying to revisit some games played, but not completed.  Well, Tomb Raider is completed but still had the save where I was going back to get all the little shiny jimmies. It’s SO pretty I think I’ll try and make up a video to compare to the new XB1/PS4 version of it.

The games played in the last 48 hours include:

  • Carmageddon Reincarnation – currently the Alpha runs at a paltry 23fps.  This is NOT system related.  It is going to be great.
  • Wreckfest – aka “Next Car Game” – It is coming along so well, the new vehicles, tracks and all around feel of driving.  I did a bit with the wheel the other night and used the controller since then.
  • Tomb Raider – I couldn’t remember the controls with the 360 controller.  I fell to my death a couple times while attempting to get a GPS marker, forgetting how to zipline.
  • Assassins Creed III – resumed my game which appears to be about 2/3rds done.  III must be complete before IV can be started.
  • FarCry 3 – resumed my game towards the end.  I never finished but got a little further taking a camp in about an hour and a half.  It takes a little bit to get back into the feel of it.
  • GTA IV: EFLC – Ballad of Gay Tony – I had to see how it was looking, will apply the latest iCEnhancer at some point
  • Grid: Autosport – Resumed a race with the wheel, following night 360 controller
  • Hot Wheels – Worlds Best Driver – Started a game with my son, it’s ridiculously simple and hard
  • Thief – Started it, got through the first mission.  It’s interesting, I like the mechanics and already like it better than Dishonored due to the model style.  I like my video game people to look like people, not caricatures.   I’m sure Dishonored will end up being fun whenever I get back to it…

That’s a lot of real gaming after an extended period of fluff.  ESO can be tough, but normally you’ve set yourself up for the battle you’re getting into with buffs and improved better than your average equipment/weapons.  Playing these games has been much more… difficult.  I need to get back in the groove.
