Being a bachelor for a week has meant a lot more focused game time, so a few things I’ve beaten recently.
Titanfall 2 - Never played the first one, only got this because it was highly lauded for having a great single player campaign. Don’t know if I necessarily agree, but it was fun enough. I know that the titans are a focus for this game, but overall I much preferred just the normal on-ground shooting portions. The wall running platforming was stupid though, not a fan.
Shovel Knight - I don’t really know how I was able to push through to finishing this game because I didn’t like it for the most part. It reminds me too much of what I dislike about old NES games, the constant feeling that my character isn’t doing what I’m telling it to. It’s an exceptionally well made game, but it’s also in an aesthetic that I’m just tired of now. I’m at that point where it has to be 16-bit or later retro for me to care.
Fez - On the opposite end, I really enjoyed playing this one all the way through. I basically beat the whole game in one sitting on Saturday and then went back Sunday to get 100% completion. I did end up looking up some of the solutions and just to figure out what the symbols mean because I’m lazy like that when it comes to fulfilling my completionist tendencies. Still, I wouldn’t mind playing it again some years down the road if I get the itch to do so.
