Week 7 - Games & Valentimes
And thus one more week is over! I've caught up with the recordings now: 5 6 and 7. I swapped some manga at the start of the week, and celebrated a relative with a board game day this weekend, as well as my dad's 74th birthday this Tuesday - which just so happens to be Valentine's Day! A hearty occasion always.
Otherwise it's been work and games, mostly. Do you want facts? How about music? Here's some other stuff posted on the blog, as well as a new batch of six overdue reviews. I've been doing some bidding and buying too - more GB/C/A games, though seems that phase's about played out now.
Remember Glimmerati? The trailer was pretty cool. The game? Not so... judging by gameplay footage. I haven't tried it myself, but just found out it was actually developed by Bugbear, the same dudes behind such legendary car games as Flat Out - always striving to take it further with their Next Car Game (which up until just recently was actually titled Next Car Game).
Interesting how our perceptions of good change with time, though some games seem to last forever. Like the original DOOM. I played out the Plutonia Experiment for the first time without cheats this week - not counting a little idclipping when I lost my way. Decided to play it on Hurt Me Plenty in hopes I'd actually complete it, as previous attempts at trying it in Ultra Violence (as I easily play the originals) failed.
These extra episodes really are gruelingly hard if you're not a seasoned vet yet though, ready for all surprises they carry, and maybe then too. Took plenty of trial and error to make it through even with only the mid-difficulty, and frequent use of GZDoom's autosave feature.
Last week? Here. That's about it. Day's short. Night's night. Times fly. I took a nostalgic speedrun through the first episode of DOOM yesterday, and hope to get through the second one right after this with a little upgrade. Ciao for now; see you soon!
