Ok, so thought I'd post yet another one of my blog posts just to mention what games I'm currently playing and other time investments.
So I've gained a few more games since my last update, all on PS3. These include the following:-
- Dark Souls (Limited Collector's Edition and only £17.99 from Tesco!)
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- L.A. Noire (Actually borrowing it from a friend so it's technically not mine)
I bought Dark Souls in the knowing I hadn't actually played Demon Souls, therefore not prepared for the onslaught that is this RPG. Don't get me wrong, everything the reviews have said is correct, it's absolutely stunning, but it's EXTREMELY hard, especially for an amateur RPG-er such as myself. But I must say, I'm extremely impressed with it and I'll probably invest in Demon Souls at some point too, just as soon as I start to get the hang of the difficulty more.
As far as Deus Ex is concerned, I owned it originally on the Xbox 360 when it was released and although I did like it, I got bored of it pretty quickly. Decided to give it another shot and I can't understand why I got so bored of it originally. It's got beautiful looks, edge-of-seat gameplay and an interesting story. It's also a different take on the FPS genre, which does provide a fresh experience, something that's becoming rare these days.
Now L.A. Noire I've actually already completed on the Xbox too, but I just had to give it another crack on the PS3. I loved it on Xbox, mostly because it's so different from anything else out there, but also for the fact that the story and characters are absolutely stellar. It also helps that it's a very long game, but not too long to which the entertainment factor turns into monotony. Also, because I'm playing it on PS3, no more am I changing discs every 10 hours thanks to blu-ray.
To conclude, I've got a lot of stuff to do at the moment, along with work on a website my friend created which I'm currently editing for. But yeah, if I think of anything interesting to put on here, I'll be sure to go through with it.
