The temptation to listen to some of the songs like the Hawaii Five-O tune nearly made me forget to select an answer.
Anyhow I'm still playing with the few that are my attempt at an Alien
Also apologies a lot of my recent posts are all on the iOS platform. I've not had a chance really to turn the 360 back on & carry on with Dead Money mainly because of the Euro Football tournament but that should be finished soon.
I don't think I will beat this score unless I get every guess under 2.0 seconds which is very difficult.
A few odd things like you use the coins collected to only change the category or unlock more avatars. Will see how this develops into something more meaningful.
Anyhow I managed to win my first game.
I best get saving those green slips to get the Infini-Lift Lightspeed
I've also now reached 50 floors so time to look at those dream jobs & try and get all the shops having 3 'dream job' staff.
Similar to Draw Something you are rewarded with coins for winning against your opponent & these coin can be used to purchase other song categories.
I quickly saved up 399 coins to purchase the TV themes tune pack.
You get awarded points on how quickly you answer the songs & by getting a chain of 5 correct songs.
Not sure what this treasure is that everyone wants to get but having Dean with me means I can walk into the poisonous cloud for short periods without any damage to health.
Having recruited Dean I then went looking for Christine in the medical district. Just like the main game you can only have one follower so I sent Dog/God back to the fountain and went with Dean.
Dean has a weapon so the ghost people I encountered were easily dealt with. The medical district also had some speakers which I had to destroy on the way to the clinic. The clinic has a hologram guard who you cannot destroy but by using stealth I was able to make it to the emitter on the wall & deactivate it to turn the guard off. I found Christine in one of the auto-docs on the second floor, she has no vocal chords so conversation was difficult.
Anyhow with the last member of the team recruited it was time to return to the fountain to talk to Elijah & break into the Sierra Madre
I give you UGVM Tower, unfortunately you cannot get one image of the whole tower so I had to use the Windows 7 snipping tool to take images.
I have still have many UGVM peeps to add to the tower so do not be upset if you do not have a business or a dwelling in he tower yet. If you have any preference for a business type then let me know example when I have built a theatre then Luffers will vacate the cinema to take over this business.
The link below should take you to the tower.
So what's changed since July last year.
You can now customise your floor names, missions to complete to gain extra bux's, share your tower on the internet (http://towers.nimblebit.com/) - currently unavailable & stars next to floors show you if you have any bitizens in their dream job.
Upgrade floors - you can upgrade a floor to increase the amount of stock held but this cost bux's, I'm not sure how much of percentage stock upgrade this increases?
What is surprising when I reinstalled the game was that it had my old save file from last July so I carried on building from floor 35. Currently on floor 39 - will show my tower when the sharetower feature is back on-line.
So who else is still playing this digital crack. One more smoke?
You start the game getting kidnapped & are taken to the villa outside of the casino where Father Elijah wants you to gather a team & break into the casino.
All of the weapons & items you were carrying are taken from you and you have to start from scratch searching every corner & house for any weapons or healing items you can find.
Dog or God (a split personality super mutant) was the first person I recruited. He was locked up in the police station cell, you have to be careful because when you were kidnapped Elijah fitted you with a bomb collar which if you go near any speakers will explode. Your collar emits a beep when you are close to a speaker so best to search & destroy it before you carry on wondering.
Having Dog/God with me made combat much easier against the ghost people because he charges in & uses his fists to rip them apart. It also means I have some extra carrying capacity because you don't have any house or safe location where items can be stored.
I'm now off to look for the next person Dean Domino.
Grubbins on Ice story continues from the end of the main game & takes you to Repugia. It plays exactly the same but gives you some extra costumes to try including Pirate & Yeti.
The end of the game leaves you in the middle of space with various portals, unfortunately no news yet on if Double Fine are working on a sequel or extra DLC content (highly unlikely because it is an old game now).
Anyhow an enjoyable few hours & if you like the main game it's more of the same joyous fun.
|New Logo - Back to the Mojave|
|Old Logo - Still waiting for adventure|
With Uncharted completed time for the logo to be changed once again.
The button sequences I have already complained about a few days ago but I must mention again mainly because the game decides to end on a button sequence fist fight.
This game has been given many superlatives "Hollywood style blockbuster" but just like a Michael Bay movie I came away thinking "Hmm, shame it could have been so much better"
Anyhow on the positive I finally completed a game on the Playstation 3 & it it not all bad because I will be back for Uncharted 2 because after all Adventure Awaits ...
I had not saved for a while so thought I would save after flicking on the 2nd switch. When going out into the main generator room I was overpowered by the creatures & died. Annoyingly you can't melee the creatures.
The game sent me back to the start where I have to turn the generator on, I thought forget that I will reload my save just after the 2nd switch but no when I loaded that it also sent me back to the generator.
I then switched the game off in disgust. (RAGE QUIT)
Adventure awaits (PAH!)
Secondly we come to the gunfight sections that only trigger when you are at a certain area. I had an annoying section where the enemies would only trigger when I was on the last step on a set of stairs. Why were the enemies not seen when I was at the top of the stairs? Where I could take cover & kill some of them before moving down the stairs
Lastly getting lost at certain locations & knowing which way to go, these usually come after the gunfight sequences. You then find yourself wondering around jumping & trying to grab ledges or jump onto platforms only to fail & fall to your death. Why? Because not all ledges & platforms in the game can be interacted with !! There is only one set path & after trial and error you will eventually find Drake jumping a larger gap than you thought possible where previously you would have died trying to jump a smaller gap.
The game was released in 2007 but why should that be an excuse for some obvious failings I can see in the game play? Much older games have not had these issues (Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider & of course also released in 2007 Assassin Creed)
Putting my frustrations to one side I am still enjoying the voice acting & storyline. Adventure awaits (albeit slightly frustrating)
AC Revelations is the culmination of Ezio's storyline which started with AC2 but it also gives you flashbacks to play with Altair.
Ubisoft felt they needed to introduce something new to the game with bombs, zip line hook & a tower defence game. Some of these play well in the game but others I don't see the point.
The reason I play the AC games is for the storyline & running around rooftops assassinating soldiers. I did not play this game on release due mainly to Skyrim (which I have still to complete) but I don't think there is anything else coming out this year that will stop me playing AC3 on release. If you have not played this series of games I highly recommend you do they are approx only around 20 to 25 hours each game on the main quest-line.
Looking forward to fighting during the American Revolution
The game takes you down a set path & you can't deviate from it to explore the area unlike many action adventure games. It has some nice action set pieces but some of these are just button press sequences.
Where you do have some control is how you decide to take on the enemies by either using weapons or melee attacks. There is a variety of weapons from AK47 to Shotguns & a plentiful supply of ammo either left by the enemies you have killed or on various crates throughout the game.
There are also some puzzle sequences through out the game but so far none that are complicated. The voice acting is very impressive & the story keeps you engrossed & moves along at a nice pace. I can't help but think of Lara Croft when playing this game & look forward to seeing how the reboot of Tomb Raider plays next year. Anyhow back to Uncharted & adventure awaits
|New Logo - Adventure awaits|
|Old Logo - Too many crashes|
I've had PSN+ since January & have yet to play any of the downloaded games, it's just another digital hoarding list.
Anyhow I decided to turn to one of the gems on the PS3 in the hope I can finally complete a game. Adventure awaits ....
Nice & simple setup, 3 players in a league, you play 3 games (2 x 1 vs 1 matches & 1 group match) Top player gets promoted & the bottom relegated?
No expansion packs just the base game
