After Batman: Arkham City, which you can read about why I never finished it here, I was kind of pissed at my “friend.” And I have this thing where when I really know people I have no filter, so I kind of bitched her out about how I always felt suckered into playing games that she wanted to play or wanted me to play and I was just done. Needing some time to cool down because I thought it would help our friendship, I turned to my PS Vita and a free PS+ game that I had picked up. Unfortunately, I didn’t play it for that long and never finished it.
Germinator is kind of a match three type of game, but different. It’s different because it’s not really done like match three game and the basis of the game is that there’s this contagion outbreak and it’s up to you, the Germinator (Get it? A take on the Terminator? Don’t worry, I didn’t either until I was writing this.) to put a stop to it. You’ll do so by shooting different colored germs at the same matching colors on the board while the board rises up towards you. There are over two hundred levels for this game and a bunch of different modes to play on which should mean hours upon hours of fun right?
Wrong. The only reason I can think of for not finishing this game is that I was not having fun. I love nothing more than mindless games where I can just sit there and stare at the screen and not have a care in the world, but it just wasn’t happening with this game. Plus, the game really wasn’t that good either. If you play a game that’s not fun, then it’s not a good game. What’s the whole point then? Games are supposed to be fun. This game simply wasn’t and while I lasted a little while playing this game I eventually gave up and moved onto something else.
As you can see from the picture above I was able to get 1 out of the 12 trophies this game has to offer. It was a pretty decent trophy to get which was to beat one of the levels in under 30 seconds. It’s probably the one time in gaming that I felt like a badass. Who beats a level in under 30 seconds? Apparently me and everyone else who played this game because it’s a common trophy. Other than that the other trophies range from rare to ultra-rare and are for beating the game and all it’s different modes. For only 12 trophies, it’s a lot of work.
Probability of this game getting played again…1 out of 5.
At the moment I have no desire to play this game, but then again hurricane season is right around the corner and I like to keep my PS Vita stashed with some games just in case there’s an actual hurricane and I need something to do besides hide in my house and listen to the wind blowing outside. So, this game might actually get played this year or it might not. It’s all up to mother nature now.
Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Even play it and get more than one trophy? Let me know down below in the comments section and for next week, it was back to the PS3 and back to a game that I started the previous year but just couldn’t get into it. This time I had some incentive though as my “friend” wanted to play the multiplayer before it was completely dead and get all of the trophies. I thought that maybe this game would get us out of this funk we were in, but it turns out that it didn’t and made things even worse. I’ll let you know more about that and why I never finished BioShock 2 next week.
