Now Playing: January 2014

nowplaying0114

It’s time to take a small break from the gaming award ceremony to catch up on what I’ve been playing over this first month of 2014.

It started with the continuation of our PS1 Link Cable gaming. We (Usagi704 and I) played some deathmatch in Duke Nukem: Total Metaldown (a port of Duke Nukem 3D) and more of Mortal Kombat Trilogy. Usagi even recorded video of this session of fighting game madness. I suspect you’ll see it soon. Keep tabs on his Twitter account and personal blog for updates.

Bayonetta became my first game finished for 2014. It’s definitely as great as you’ve probably heard. I did pussy out a small amount by choosing to play on Easy difficulty, but I did disable the item used for automatic combos. And oh Luka. How can I forget about Luka. He’s the lovable goof who goes from wanting revenge on Bayonetta to appreciating her for no apparent reason, but he’s forgiven all the same.

I’m currently playing Pandemic Studios’ final game, The Saboteur from very late 2009. It’s an open world game based in occupied Paris, France during World War II. It’s big graphical gimmick is similar to Prince of Persia 2008. In that game once you conquered an area the colors brightened up in said location. In The Saboteur areas are in black and white until freed and then color is restored. It’s quite a interesting game in which I recommend looking into.

Thanks for reading!

THIS MONTH’S GAMING STATS:
* Bayonetta – 6h22m; 16/51 trophies
* The Saboteur – 13h3m; 47% missions; 16% targets; 14/46 trophies

  1. Bayonetta is a fun beat-em up despite its rather frustrating moments. I would not mind going back to playing it again though.

    I found The Saboteur’s art direction rather interesting with what you’ve pointed out. Seems like you have been having some fun with it.
