5 Games I Never beat, But I Need To

Everyone has games they started but never finished for one reason or another we just never got around to completing. With that out of the way and in no particular order here are 5 games that I never beat, but I need to.

Mass Effect Andromeda

Mass Effect Andromeda got A LOT of shit when it came out for various reasons, and I admit it is without a doubt the worst in the series. Fortunately that is kind of like being the poorest millionaire in a room. This came out right before the next game on this list, which distracted me from Mass Effect,

Persona 5

Persona 5

Persona 5 may be the best games in the past year or 2, and at 100 hours I simply needed a break. Make no mistake, that 100 hours was me playing the game as it was meant to be played. It is very in depth and there are tons of things to do.My only regret is I am yet to go back to it.

Kerbal Space Program

Kerbal

Kerbal is a weird game, and i’m not sure you can actually beat this game. It may be more accurate to say I wish i was good enough at this game to visit more of the planets and moons the game has to offer. Failure tho has never been so much fun.

Elder Scrolls Oblivion

This game was amazing, the world was great the lore fun the control were solid, and I never finished the game. Some may ask why not, well  spent 200 hours doing everything except the main story which I played just long enough to deal with the gates. As an added bonus, I never beat Morrowind either, for the same reason.

Final Fantasy 12

FF12

I love the Final Fantasy series. Except this one. The battle system bores me and I can’t seem to get into the story. Tho of all the games in the series this i easily the most debated and not for a good reason. While I have met very few people like this game, the ones that do will defend it to death.

As always thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Fallout New Vegas

Many people see New Vegas as the sort of black sheep of the family. I am not one of them. Vegas is probably my favorite of them all. The story of the courier was full of twist, turns, strange individuals and death. Traveling the Mojave was interesting, and seeing what happened to Vegas after the war was fun. While the groups are fun, like one that worships Elvis and walks around dressed like him and talking like him there were other areas that the game improved on from Fallout 3. For example being able to choose different types of ammo was amazing. Some examples of this were armor piercing rounds worked great with a sniper rifle.

The looks of the game were slightly better than its predecessor and the sound set the tone beautifully. the DLC was also fun but admittedly wasn’t as fun as it was in Fallout 3, but that doesn’t mean it was bad. the sierra madre was a pain in the ass sure, but it was an interesting twist on the series. As always thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Skyrim

Oh Skyrim. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said by 100 blogs,magazines and YouTube videos? The game visually was amazing on PS3 and the PS4 remaster is even more stunning. The music score is fantastic and sound equally great. With hundreds of weapons, armor, accessories ,spells and enchantments to make and even more combinations to go with them you will never run out of things to do with your down time. You can also build and furnish houses, adopt children or buy horses. All that can take hundreds of hours if you want and we haven’t even gotten into the story and side quest galore. My first experience with this lasted around 200 hours, I kept forgetting about the story and joined the Dark Brotherhood because my character was an assassin. After that i thought hey the thieves guild could be fun. Then I needed a house to store all my stuff. Also did I mention I was a werewolf by this point? My options were that or vampire. All in all any RPG fan you owe it to yourself to lose yourself in an immense world with seemingly endless possibilities. As always thanks for joining me and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Elder Scrolls Online

The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO that takes place prior to the First game chronologically which does give a new perspective to the series itself. The game does have many issues tho. For example playing solo the game quickly becomes boring and lacks any real entertainment even worse than most of the genre I have played. The maps are also very large but mostly lack any real purpose. The game tho isn’t bad. The combat is solid enough and character building is fun. It is also pretty well supported. The game is also very much not pay to win with most of the real micro transactions being things that make the game more interesting but unnecessary. Sure you can buy pets and mounts or even things to help you level up faster but the game is hardly a massive grind compared to games like Elite Dangerous or Neverwinter. The lore is plentiful as are missions and the game has plenty of creation aspects with alchemy and enchantment as well as armor and weapons creation. All that being said if you are simply an MMO fan you may want to pass on this one as there are better games out there, but it is fun for Elder Scrolls fans. Thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Suicide Squad

First let me preface this guy saying the movie was better than I thought it would be, tho thinking about the movie or analysing it in any capacity is a bad idea. But this, for me, was easily the most over rated and over hyped movie of 2016. Also the best part of this movie that didn’t include Margot Robbies shorts being so small they were basically a thong was Will Smith playing Deadshot.  The soundtrack was also amazing from beginning to end so much so that i’m pretty sure it cost half their budget. Also if one more person tells me they want a relationship like Harley and Joker may get smacked. The story itself is rather mundane and has a plenty of issues. Like I said, don’t think about this movie. It also happens to be pretty fun with a body count that kept me, a guy that loves horror and 80’s action flicks, very happy. As always thanks for coming, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Batman Vs Superman

BATMAN-SUPERMAN-1.jpg

I heard a lot of bad things about this movie before I ever saw it.  That being said some of it is exaggerated. Most of it was not. Jessie Eisenberg played his part well. The problem is he played a form of Luthor I don’t think ever existed, and if it did most people are unaware of it. Amy Adams had a performance that was uninspired to say the very least.

I do have to own up to the fact that Ben Affleck is probably the best batman/Bruce in decades, may even be the best not named Conroy.

The visuals were nice as was the music, but aside from that the plot was horrible and at times lacked any real sense to it. For example the very idea that anyone even knew to look for kryptonite? That’s not the sort of thing you stumble across.  I would suggest watching the movie tho as it is fun and entertaining but don’t think to much about it. If you do you will wonder how batman used machine guns to get the jump on superman but somehow wasn’t smart enough to use kryptonite bullets. As always thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

South Park, The Stick Of Truth

south park

South Park, The Stick Of truth, what can I say. My expectations on a South Park RPG were very very low. I was expecting a half assed story, a crumby battle system and some cheap laughs. What I got was a fun story of kids in the neighborhood LARPing with multiple groups spanning the entire town with a few of the adults even playing along.

The battle system itself while simplistic, involves various button actions to do moves and increase damage. There are  few different classes to choose from as well as different story paths to take meaning there is some good replay value there for those that care to explore it all.

In typical South Park fashion there are plenty of adult oriented jokes from both the series and new.  I was pleasantly surprised by how well this game is and truly can not wait for the eventual release of Fractured But Whole which seems to have a similar presence but this time its dealing with the super hero genre. Many thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
