Hey guys, so considering starting a monthly what are you playing uhh thing. Most of my games tend to be on the PC, but I will occasionally swing a console game here and there. So lets just see how it goes. (watches it die a horrible death)
Currently Playing: This War of Mine (PC), Hearthstone (PC), King’s Bounty: The Legend (PC) and Mario Kart: Double Dash (GCN)
Looking Towards Playing: MLB 15, WoW (again), and possibly some others.
This War of Mine: First of all, this is not a run and gun or tactical military Shooter/FPS. You play as a civilian or group of civilians and just try to survive the war by finding food, materials to craft items/furniture etc. The only issue is replay value suffers a bit after you survive one “war”. The games do vary when you play again, different layouts when you scavenge for supplies etc. But it’s essentially the same game just starting over.
Current rating: 8/10
Current Staying Power: 3/10
Hearthstone: This one shouldn’t take much of an explanation but it’s basically a simplified Magic the Gathering with WoW Themes, it’s pretty fun but has taken a bit of a backseat this month.
Current rating: 9/10
Current Staying Power: 5/10
Kings Bounty: The Legend: Ok so I’ve had this one forever but never gave it a chance. Gotta say I’m pleasantly surprised so far. The writing/story isn’t entirely serious almost like it makes fun of itself which is great. (At least that’s how it was in the training section) I’m not too far along right now but I feel like the leveling and skill system will keep my interest for a bit. Likely this will carry over into next months summary…
Current rating: 7/10
Current Staying Power: 9/10
Mario Kart DD: Ok ok, yeah I’m playing this right now, don’t hate. But I still feel like this is one of the more underrated Mario Kart’s. The dual character dynamic seems gimmicky but it sure makes firing off items more strategic and fun. Also I’m playing this on the Dolphin emulator with a PC Gamecube controller adapter since I’m too lazy to bust out my Gamecube.
Current rating: 8/10
Current Staying Power 6/10
So far that’s what I have on my plate. I’ll update with a Top 10 list next time or so to kind of keep things in order and how long they hold my attention. But let me know what you guys are playing, and if you have any suggestions of what I should put next on the docket
