All About Chalkman
Well, another game down. Velvet Assassin a stealth shooter but really move of a steath stabber. It's a lot sneaking around, as you'd guess but I really started to enjoy this title especially these last few weeks. The game mechanics leave much to be desired, but I'm pretty forgiving as long as you let me use my mouse and keyboard. If you are gonna play it, I suggest the hardest setting. It is a really good game, and actually very disturbing subject matter towards the end of the game. A really thought provoking title because of the way they handled the story which is loosly based on Violette Szabo. Szabo turns out was captured after a fierce gun battle, was later tortured and killed, and in this title they somewhat captured the desperation and helplessness of that last battle. Of course it doesn't quite end like that, but a fair and unusual ending - very few game makers choose to end there games quite like this. If you can get past the wonky controls, and you like stealth games - you'll find this a bit of a rare gem.I seem to like it more than most of the Xboxers on here, but I played the PC version. What is to become of Violette? I hope she makes another appearance someday soon.
Also, i'm going on Vacation ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That sound is me sitting on a beach drinking a beer.
But first i'm leaving for Vegas tommorow for my brothers wedding at the Monte Carlo. I'm not big into Vegas, but it should be fun before I turn around and head back west, then north.
So what game should I go on to now that fills this void? I've heard Dead Space is a solid choice, but I still have COD5 to finish and i want to get it done before Modern Warfare 2 comes out. What about Mirror's Edge? Wanted Weapons of Fate? Crystatis? Any opinions on those titles welcome.
Anyway ya'll have a nice couple weeks.
..time to finish a game? I've had games take years to finish. For example GTA San Andreas I have savegames from 2006-2008, and I still have not finished it. Stalker took darn near a year for me to finish. And here I am nearing the finish of Fallout3. A game I started October 31st 2008. Is it me or do some games just take a very long time to finish?
Never mind the fact that I've got 20+ games on my playlist. I'm sure many of you also have similar lists. A key factor is this: as unbelievable as it may seem...its time.
Not game time, time to get around all the games coming out all the time. I get maybe a couple hours a day to game, with maybe 4 a day on weekends. That's 14 hours. Of course probably 6 of that is Flight Simulator and tweaking. That gives a solid eight hours a week to finish some of these beasts. Some of these games are just so massive in scope (fallout3) that it makes sense with time like that it could take a year to finish. Although I really am enjoying it, it almost is a burden to have to finish. For this reason i'm really starting to like the 10 hour game. Say COD4, that was 6-8 solid hours of fantastic gaming. Or Warhead, that was a perfect length for a game. I'd never be able to play Wow with this kind of time.
So, how much time, on average, do any of you take to finish a long game?
Now that furloughs have started here in LA, CHP and HP are out in force and they want to take there maniditory days off out on your wallet. I narrowly escaped one CHP, only to have another "strangely" appeared on the onramp ahead of me. I tucked in behind, so he had nothing, but watch your mirrors people.

Some people just don't have opinions. Like Chalkman.
Chalkman does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Chalkman a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
