I Never Finished…Crysis 2…Because

Crysis 2

So this game was basically my trying to reconcile with my “friend” game. She said this game was just amazing and I simply could not go without playing it. She also said that there was multiplayer for this game and that we could help each other get through it and get the platinum trophy for this game. Wanting to reconcile after our very recent blow-ups and periods of not taking to each other, I said OK and picked this game up used. You know the deal though, because if it’s on this list I never finished it, so keep reading to find out why.

In Crysis 2, you get to play as Alcatraz and make your way through a now urban jungle that is New York. This game depends heavily on the fact that you actually played the first game, meaning that throughout the game I was completely lost and had no idea what was going on for the main campaign. I just basically ran around New York shooting stuff and following the mission objectives, but I can honestly tell you I have no idea what this game was even about. As for the multiplayer aspect of this game, it was at that time basically Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is. Meaning that it was fun for about twenty minutes before it got to be the same old thing over and over again.

This whole game was a big lie for me that apparently my “friend” thought was funny. So lie number one was that I didn’t have to play the first game to understand this one when you totally have to play the first one because it’s basically a continuation of the first game. The second lie was that I would have someone to play the multiplayer with but every time I wanted to play the multiplayer she was busy, doing something, I don’t know like washing her hair or something. So, I gritted my teeth, played through the whole campaign basically not caring about the story and played some of the multiplayer before calling it quits because I really didn’t like this game which is why I never finished it. Some games just aren’t for me and this one clearly wasn’t. Did I mention though that I made sure to get more trophies for this game than my “friend” in order to just piss her off? Sometimes you win…sometimes you lose.

For playing only one playthrough and a couple of games of multiplayer I was able to get an ok amount of trophies. 24 out of 51 isn’t really that bad. It puts me at 38% complete, which isn’t great but at least it’s not 0%. To be honest I really didn’t even care about how many trophies I was able to get for this game as long as I got more than my “friend” which I did.

Probability of this game getting played again…1 out of 5.

Crysis 2

I really don’t like this game and really can’t see myself playing it again unless I seriously had nothing else to play. I do keep this game though only if to remind me that sometimes people suck and people who you think are your friends really aren’t. It’s one of the lessons learned by being a part of the PS network, and it’s also one of those times when I wished I had just stuck to single player games and never started playing multiplayer games in the first place.

So now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Enjoy playing the multiplayer? Play the first one so that you could understand this game? Or were you completely lost like me because you started off by playing this game? Let me know down in the comments section below and as for next week a game that I wanted to play for me and I was really excited by the premise. I have to say that it was a cool idea and was way before it’s time because while this game wasn’t all that successful, games like Life is Strange was super successful. While it’s not the same story, it has the same features. Want to know why Life is Strange and Remember Me or so similar? Because they’re both made by Dontnod. That’s right, the people that brought you the amazing adventure in Life is Strange also brought you Remember Me. Unlike Life is Strange though, I never finished this game so next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Remember Me.

I Never Finished…Men’s Room Mayhem…Because

Men's Room Mayhem

This is one of those rare PS Vita games that I purchased digitally and was never able to sell it and make back my money or make more on what I spent, so yeah I spent actual money on this game. A whole 99 cents to be exact! Anyway, this was my first PS Vita purchase and I did so for two reasons. One I love time management games and two it was 99 cents. Anyway, I never finished this game, so keep reading to find out why.

In Men’s Room Mayhem, you use the touch screen of the PS Vita in order to lead various different men in various different bathrooms to the urinal if they have to pee, a stall if they have to poop, and then if you’re a clean freak like me to the sink to wash their hands, before leading them to the exit. Sounds simple right? Not really because if the men accidently run into each other they’ll get into a fist fight and then there’s blood all of your clean bathroom floor! You only get so many chances to get these men in and out of the bathroom. Can you do it without spilling any blood? Maybe, maybe not.

The first thing that I have to say is that this game was totally worth the 99 cents that I paid for it. I’ve spent so many hours on this game that it’s insane. I like that I can just sit back and put this game on at any time and feel like I’ve been playing it for ages when I haven’t played it in the longest time. It’s just one of those games that you can pop in and out of without a problem. So, I really like playing this game when my brain just feels…overactive. Like I have a million things to think about and my brain is like WTF is going on because this makes me concentrate on doing a specific task in a specific amount of time and a specific way. It’s really nice to be able to do. Anyway, not only is the game good for that but it’s actually fun. Yes I know it sounds a little gross and it kind of is, but it’s still super fun. So why haven’t I finished it yet? Believe me that it’s not from lack of trying because I’ve been trying to finish this game for 5 years. Yes, 5 years. So the one thing that made me never finish this game is a trophy!

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get every single trophy for this game but one. It’s so damn annoying because I’ve been so close and the trophy should be super easy but it’s not. My last trophy is to complete all the gold objectives and I just have one more gold objective to complete! I just can’t do it though. In one playthrough I have to get 18 (I think it’s 18, the last time I played was last year during a hurricane) men to wash their hands in a row and for the life of me I just can’t do it. I’ve tried so many times on so many levels, watched other people do it and I just can’t do it.

Probability of this game getting played again…5 out of 5.

Hurricane season looks like it’s going to be an active one this year with the first named storm passing by before Hurricane season actually started, so I think I’ll be getting a lot of use out of my PS Vita. If and when I do, I’ll be playing this game because it helps me concentrate on the game instead of the howling winds outside. It’s a really good distraction game. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it, but if we’re lucky enough to not get a direct hit from a hurricane this year and I don’t get to play this game believe me I won’t be disappointed.

Now it’s your turn. Did you pick up this little gem of a game or was it too gross for you? If you picked it up, did you love it or hate it? Let me know down in the comments section below and for next week a game that I used to try and reconcile with my “friend”. She said the game was good like she always did and said she would play the multiplayer with me so I said I would get the game and I figured we could try to be friends again. Turns out she totally screwed me over and I ended up with a game that I never wanted in the first play and then never finished. So next week I’ll tell you more on why I never finished Crysis 2.

I Never Finished…BioShock 2…Because

BioShock 2

So, as you might already know, I love the BioShock series. If didn’t then I would have never gotten anything to do with BioShock inked on my body, because that stuff is forever you know. Anyway, right after I finished the first BioShock, I jumped into the second one, but for some reason just couldn’t get into it. After a couple of months and basically not having anything to play, can you imagine(?), I jumped back into the game but for all the wrong reasons. To play the multiplayer with my “friend.” This turned into a disaster soon and BioShock 2 still remains on my list of unfinished games.

BioShock 2 takes you back to Rapture, but you’re not some little guy running around for Fontaine this time, this time you get to play as a Big Daddy, named project Delta. I really thought that this was the highlight of the game because you get to play as one of these massive creatures and you have a drill. If you’ve played this game and say that using the drill isn’t fun, you’re completely fooling yourself. Anyway, as a Big Daddy you’ll start by seeing the events that basically caused the destruction of Rapture. This happens two years before the start of the first game, but the main gameplay of this game takes place ten years after that because you’ve been in a coma this whole time. I know the timeline can get a little confusing, but in true BioShock fashion, the story is so captivating that the timeline really doesn’t matter. Anyway, as Delta your main goal is to get back to Eleanor because as a Big Daddy she was the one that you bonded with and if you don’t get back to her you’ll fall back into your coma. During this time though you’ll run into some major players in Rapture and have to determine their fate. Will you be the horrible Big Daddy that everyone thinks you are or will you show them mercy? The choice is yours in this follow up to BioShock.

Like I said before, the first time I played this game, which was immediately after I played BioShock, I just couldn’t get into it. It was weird. I was in familiar territory, but it just wasn’t doing it for me. So I gave it up for a little. My “friend” convinced me to start playing again and to play the multiplayer. Big mistake because at this time we were becoming more like frenemies. This only amplified it as it turned into a big competition and even though we were in the same party we were pitted against each other a lot. Because we didn’t use the PS3 microphone, because the severs for this game are just shitty and so are the microphone aspects, we would either use Skype or our phones. This worked basically worked to our advantage as we were still able to talk while playing but also listen for clues to where the other one was and hunt them down. This seemed fun at first because it was like, “Oh I got you,” laugh, laugh, laugh and then it started to get serious. And it turned into this big competition when we were on opposing teams and even more competition when we were on the same team. It was weird and we soon stopped talking to each other that much. So with the multiplayer aspect of this game done, I decided to jump back into the game and start playing again. This time I made it through the game but like the original game I never went back to clean up the remaining trophies. Call it laziness on my part because even though this game gets a lot of criticism, it’s a good game. I enjoyed it, but I just didn’t have the time to start playing again and get all of the trophies.

I didn’t do bad though in the trophy department as you can see from the picture above. For starting the game and stopping before starting the game and playing through it all over again, I was able to get 40 out of the original 51 base trophies. Not bad for one and half playthroughs. I’m not missing that many trophies and most of them have to deal with the multiplayer as getting the platinum would require me to grind my way up to level 40. I think I’m possibly teetering on level 20 the last time I played, but grinding to level 40 is a huge grind. I also have to play the game one more time to finish up all the difficulty trophies and some other random trophies.

Probability of this game getting played again…2 out of 5.

BioShock 2

As much as I liked this game, because I really do, I think that if I play it again it’ll be on the PS4 instead of the PS3 where the multiplayer was removed. I really can’t see playing as many games as needed to reach level 40. It’s just impossible. The other trophies are possible but the last thing I want to do is go back into that multiplayer which wasn’t all that great to begin with and try to get to level 40 which just seems like a real chore. Maybe one day when the servers are closing a bunch of people are trying to play at once I’ll try, but just not now.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Think it was a worthy sequel of the original? Let me know down in the comments section below. As for next week, it was back to my PS Vita since I was on my “friends” shit list once more, and the competition thing really became out of hand as for every platinum trophy that she got, I had to grind my way to three more platinum trophies. It was basically like anything you can do I can do better. So yeah, back to my PS Vita with a game that I actually purchased! I know it’s unbelievable but I couldn’t pass up on the 99 cent price tag. Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Men’s Room Mayhem.

I Never Finished…Germinator…Because

Germinator

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.

I Never Finished…Batman: Arkham City…Because

Batman: Arkham City

As many of you might already know, my Batman knowledge if very slim. I’ve played the Telltale Batman games, the LEGO Batman games, watched a few Batman movies, watch Gotham, but that’s about it. I’m more of a Marvel girl than a DC girl and for some reason Batman never really interested me. Give me a game about Wonder Woman and I’ll be all over it. Anyway, my “friend” said I just had to play this game because it was the best Batman game ever. I said OK because I was tired of arguing and went out and bought the game thinking, “hey this is a single player game and I can have a few days or a week at best of silence if she sees I’m playing it.” Not really a good reason to buy a game, hence why I never finished it.

Batman: Arkham City is about Batman. You get to play as Batman and make your way through the city chasing after Batman’s number one nemesis, The Joker, while doing some other stuff on the side. This is a follow up to the 2009 game, Arkham Asylum, which I never played. Turns out this time around Batman is in this huge super prison within Gotham that has been named Arkham City. Here Batman is going knock out criminals, chase down some common bad guys throughout the history of Batman, and try to find out about “Protocol 10.” While this all sounds like fun if you’re a huge Batman person, if you’re not this game is just a head scratcher.

So I probably should have payed Arkham Asylum first because maybe it would have made more sense. Sometimes jumping into a sequel is not a good idea. For some games you can, others you can’t and I think this is one of them. Anyway, I remember playing this game for about 8 days before finally beating it and saying that I was done. I have to say though I did make sure to get more trophies than my “friend” though because I thought it would piss her off, it totally did. Mission accomplished. Anyway, I really didn’t like the whole story or the actual game play. I thought it was mediocre at best and don’t even get me started with the “gliding.” That was just a pain in the ass and I hated every single part of that. Anyway, there was still a bunch of stuff to do after finishing the main story and because I just wasn’t feeling the game, I put it down and never played again.

I have to say though, I didn’t do bad in the trophy department. Out of the 51 base trophies for this game, I was able to get 30 of them in one shot. Not bad in my opinion. Because of my non interest in this game, I didn’t purchase any of the DLC which added an additional 20 trophies, so I don’t have any of those. Anyway, I’m missing a bunch of random trophies like having a date with Calendar Man, which can easily be hacked, but I don’t do that type of thing, getting a combo score, solving all of the Riddler’s crap, and playing a new game. It’s really a lot that’s left to do and not something I can just jump back into and get the trophies by playing one afternoon.

Probability of this game getting played again…2 out of 5.

Batman: Arkham City

So I still have this game, I have all the games I never finished and only keep a small collection of games that I absolutely love. The rest get sold off for some extra cash to go towards more games…that I’ll probably never finish. Anyway, at the moment I really have no desire to go back and play this game. But you never know, I might look at this game sitting in my folder one day and be like, “hmm…yeah I want to play this.” It can happen. Not right not, but in the future. The far far away future.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game because you’re a huge Batman fan? Love this game just because you thought it was great? Hate this game? Actually have the platinum for this game without hacking the Calendar Man trophy? Let me know down in the comments section and for next week a PS Vita game. So I was at this pretty toxic point with my “friend” and really bitched at her because of this game. I needed some time to cool down which is why I turned to my PS Vita and played a free PS+ game. Gotta love that I really haven’t invested all that much money in games for my PS Vita. Anyway, next on my I Never Finished list is Germinator. It looked fun enough, but I only got one trophy. I’ll let you know why next week.

I Never Finished…Knytt Underground…Because

Knytt Underground

As I said last week, this was a free PS+ game. While I had stopped downloading every single free PS+ game just because they were free, I genuinely thought that I would enjoy this game and enjoy it enough that I would finish it completely. How hard could it be right? Apparently very because I never finished it. Keep reading to find out why.

Knytt Underground is about…to tell you the truth I have no idea. This was one of those games where I had to do some research just to tell you what this game is actually about so here it goes. In Knytt Underground you play as a sprite called Mi Sprocket. Mi has lost the ability to speak accurately so everyone misunderstands her and she’s recruited, unwillingly, into a mission in order to save the world. In order to save the world, Mi has to ring the six bells of fate which you have to find throughout this puzzle 2d side scrolling type game.

So yeah, I was completely clueless to this game and actually tried to replay this game a few times after getting lost over and over again, but it just didn’t happen. I had no idea what was going on and I just couldn’t keep up which made me feel completely stupid. How dare a game do that! So I just tossed it to the side. I keep it on my PS3 though because when you scroll over it, the games gives this pretty image and this relaxing little sound. The game reminds me of Fez, which I did complete and actually wrote a review for. You can read that review here, but I have to give the disclaimer that it’s a horrible review. Horrible. Anyway, this game is like that. While playing you really have no idea what you’re doing or why you’re supposed to be doing it. So after numerous times of trying to play, I just gave up.

As you can see from the picture above I got a big fat 0 in the trophy department. It’s really nothing to be ashamed of though because if you look at the actual trophy list and see what each trophy ranges as, they range from very rare to ultra-rare. That’s for the whole list. There is not one common trophy, uncommon trophy, or even rare trophy on there. This doesn’t make me too angry, but I still hate having that stain on my profile.

Probability of this game getting played again…4 out of 5.

So why rate this game so high if I’m not ashamed of the 0 trophies or don’t really care for the game? Because I just want to finish it. It’s one of those games where I want to find a walkthrough, spend a day playing, get all of the trophies, and be done with it. I just don’t want it on my list anymore and I want to be able to take it off my system even though it has that relaxing background and sound. It’s one of those games that keeps picking at the back of my mind telling me that I could play and finish it.

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate this game? Get any trophies at all or actually finish this game? If you did I applaud you and please brag about it down in the comments section below. For next week, another game that was recommended by my “friend.” Why did I keep listening to her? Anyway, it’s a few more weeks before our big blow up and the last time you’ll ever hear about her because we stopped being friends. Anyway, that’s not happening next week, next week I’ll just tell you how I was convinced to play a game I never wanted to play and ended up never finishing it. For next week I’ll tell you why I never finished Batman: Arkham City.

I Never Finished…inFAMOUS 2…Because

inFAMOUS 2

I played this game immediately after playing the first inFAMOUS because I basically didn’t want to forget what the main story was about. When you play a lot of games, you kind of have a habit of doing that especially if the game itself really isn’t that memorable. Anyway, I didn’t have to buy this game because I had downloaded it when it was free thanks to PS+. Unfortunately, I never finished this game either so keep reading to find out why.

inFAMOUS 2 takes place basically right after the first game and you resume the role of Cole. This time around though, Cole isn’t the only one with electrical based powers. There are a lot of them now and they’re called Conduits. The most powerful Conduit, called the Beast, is threating the city of New Marais and the whole world itself as he seeks world domination. It’s up to Cole, who can either be a good guy or a bad guy to stop him. Throughout the game you’ll have to make moral choices like in the first game that will affect your karma standing and how the normal citizens of New Marais see you. Will Cole be able to defeat the Beast and put an end to all of this? You’ll have to play to find out.

Like the first game, I did enjoy this game and enjoyed to continue to play as Cole. He’s a pretty cool character and while the story this time around was basically the same, it had different elements to it and improved. Most sequels are better than the first game in my opinion. There are so many sequels that just outrank the first game it’s unbelievable. Anyway, I’m not here to talk about that, I’m here to talk about inFAMOUS 2 and why I never finished it. This game not only had a better story and went deeper into the whole, Cole isn’t the only one like this story, it also tacked on some user created maps where you would have to do something in that a user created usually in a specific amount of time. This kind of ruined the experience and even though I played the game throughout the end and enjoyed it, this part kind of ruined it for me and just like the first game I never went back to play as evil cole.

For my first and only playthrough of this game, I was able to get a total of 38 out of the 52 trophies, which really isn’t all that bad. It’s actually pretty good. Anyway, I’m missing the trophies for playing evil Cole and playing on hard. I’m also missing the trophy for playing 25 user created missions because they usually suck and I hate sitting there and playing them. I really hate these games that have user created content because maybe 1 in a million are actually good, the rest are just absolute crap. Anyway, I’m not really missing a lot of trophies for this game and could easily go back to get the platinum.

Probability of this game getting played again…3 out of 5.

So I gave this a 3out of 5 like the first game because if I go back and play the first game and get the platinum, I might as well go back and get the platinum for this game and basically complete my collection of inFAMOUS platinum trophies. I have the platinum trophies for inFAMOUS: Second Son and inFAMOUS: First Light. It only make sense that I have the platinum for these two games as well. Anyway, I don’t see that happening any time soon, but it could.

Now it’s your turn. What did you think of the second installment of inFAMOUS? Did you love it? Hate it? Think it was better or worse than the original? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now for next week, another free PS+ game that looked cool, but ended up getting me a big fat 0 in the trophy department and basically giving up. So next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Knytt Underground.

I Never Finished…inFAMOUS…Because

inFAMOUS

I decided to pick this game up because my “friend” had recommended it so I kind of knew she would leave me the hell alone if I was playing it. As I said last time we were kind of at that blowing up stage where our friendship, if you want to call it that, would eventually end. This was one of those tipping points for a lot of reasons, but that’s not why I never finished this game, so keep reading to find out why.

In inFAMOUS, you play as Cole. Cole is a bicycle messenger who gets caught in an explosion in the fictional town of Empire City. Surviving the explosion, Cole now finds out that he has electrical based powers. Now it’s up to Cole to return some normalcy to Empire City by using his new powers for good or Cole can be a total douche-bag and continue to destroy Empire City which is where Karma comes in. Will you play as a good Cole or a bad Cole? Depending on how you play is how the rest of the city will react to you.

I really enjoyed this game and enjoyed my time playing it. It was different from other games that I was playing, but it was kind of the same with the karma system. The karma system made me think of Mass Effect in a way where if you played as a paragon people reacted differently to you than if you played as a renegade. I even thought this game held up because it came out in 2009 and I played it 2013. That being said, I did play the game until the end of the story, which I thought was pretty great but don’t want to spoil anything here. I will say that I played as the good guy expect for those accidental parts where I might have shocked a regular person on the street and apparently one last choice where I saved his girlfriend instead of saving other people. I wouldn’t really call that an evil choice, but the game thought so. Anyway…the reason why I didn’t finish this game was because of those damn challenges and the shards. There was no way to detect the shards except manually scanning each and every part of the city which became tiresome so I quit. I could have went back and played evil Cole, which was the plan, but I didn’t.

For my first and only playthrough of this game I was able to get a total of 31 out of the 50 trophies available for this game. Not bad for my first go around. I am missing a bunch of trophies though and they’re for doing random things like collecting the shards, completing challenges, and playing as evil Cole. I think if I were to play this game just one more time than I would be able to get all of these trophies and get the platinum.

Probability of this game getting played again…3 out of 5.

inFAMOUS

I would really like to play this game again and have looked at it while I’ve browsed through my game collection but I just never had the push to put the game into my PS3 and start playing again. I’m not really sure why, but I would eventually like to get the platinum trophy for this game. When that’s going to happen I have no idea, but it’s kind of one of those games that I want to finish.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Get all the shards, by yourself? Let me know down in the comments section below and for next week since I had already played inFAMOUS and had inFAMOUS 2 thanks to PS+, I figured I might as well play it before I forgot what the first inFAMOUS was about. Anyway, that game also went unfinished and I’ll let you know why next week.

I Never Finished…Dead Island Riptide…Because

Dead Island Riptide

So remember how I purchased Dead Island because my “friend” said it would be a cool game for us to play and we needed something new to play but then abandoned me about halfway through? So yeah, I should have been suspicious of the same behavior and realized that she really wasn’t a friend, but when she suggested Dead Island Riptide as a new game for us to play since we kind of played Dead Island, I said why not. You know the deal though, if it’s on this list then I never finished it. Keep reading to find out why.

Dead Island Riptide is basically a continuation of Dead Island. Not really a full whole game, it’s more like an expansion where you continue to use one of four characters, or use a new one that was added, to beat zombies senseless while running around an island doing various different tasks for different people. Talking about the plot of this game would give away the ending to Dead Island, which I don’t like to spoil for people who haven’t gotten there yet, so what I will say is that you’re in a new location, another island, and still immune to becoming a zombie. Like the previous game, the story is iffy at best and is basically there to be there. The ending though is a huge cliffhanger that will probably never be resolved.

I really don’t know why I bought this game. I was perfectly satisfied with the way Dead Island ended and really didn’t need to play another Dead Island game. We’ll get into why I went ahead and bought the remastered version in another edition of this blog, but I purchased this game because my “friend” wanted to play it, with me. She said this time would be different and blah blah blah, so I believed her. Guess what happened? Half way thought I was not only abandoned and left to play the game on my own, but my “friend” decided to privatize her room when playing so that I couldn’t join. After a few messages that she “didn’t see”, I gave up and went on playing this game alone. I eventually finished the story, but never went back to finish up the trophies or play this game again.

As you can see from the image above, I was able to get 22 of the 36 trophies available for this game. Not bad considering I did this in one playthrough. I’m missing a variety of trophies that range from playing all of the main quests with a partner, finishing up the side quests, leveling up, and collecting all of the collectibles. Ironically the trophy completion for this game is at 48% which is the same as Dead Island.

Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.

Dead Island Riptide

The only reason why I mark this as a 0 is because I have no one to play this game with and I don’t feel like spending the time to try and find someone to play all of the main quests of this game with. I know it’s lazy since it would only take one more full playthrough to get the platinum trophy for this game and I can take it off my list. It’s really not that hard of a platinum, but still it’s finding that person to play with. I’m pretty sure when they decide to close the servers though there will be a bunch of people trying to get this trophy so I might start playing then.

Now it’s your turn. What did you think about this game? Love it? Hate it? Looking for someone to play all of the main quests with? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now for next week, I was done with these co-op games and basically done with my “friend” at this time, our big blow up and final game played together is arriving shortly, so I decided to go for a game that was single player only. This game just happened to be inFAMOUS. Unfortunately, I never finished it and I’ll let you know why next week.

I Never Finished…Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified…Because

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified

After my Dead Island failure, it was time to switch over to my PS Vita for a little while so that I could be left alone. The PS Vita made all of that seem easy because you were able to switch over to it and people couldn’t tell if you were online or not. This was a time when there was only the PS3 and PS Vita, but now if you’re using your PS Vita you can clearly see it on your PS4. Anyway, back to my unfinished game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.

Unlike the other Call of Duty games, this one basically has no story and only four modes. There’s operation mode in which you take different operations over and over again until you finally get them right and then get a rating. There’s a time trial mode where you have to do a specific thing in a certain amount of time. There’s also hostiles mode which I don’t even remember playing. Then there’s the classic Call of Duty multiplayer. While everyone basically plays Call of Duty for the multiplayer, the normal Call of Duty games at least have some kind of campaign mode and aren’t some half-assed game that Black Ops Declassified is.

Like I said last week, I didn’t run out and purchase this game, this game came with my PS Vita when I purchased it. It was either this game or some Madden game and I wasn’t having it. So Call of Duty it was and this game actually sat there for a while because I didn’t want to play it. I didn’t want to be one of those Call of Duty people. This was one game that I had no interest in playing, until I basically ran out of games for my PS Vita. This was because I refused to pay for PS Vita games, but that’s besides the point. Anyway, I played this game for a short period of time, got really bored of the operations and time trial mode and went into the multiplayer. There I basically found what I was looking for. I spent a lot of time playing this game for a couple of weeks and surprisingly the PS Vita multiplayer, like any Call of Duty multiplayer, was really active so I continued to play. Unlucky for me though I didn’t realize that at this time that my PS Vita microphone was always on which meant that people I was playing with probably heard a lot of me mouthing off and a lot of The Golden Girls in the background. So why stop playing if I was enjoying myself? After a while it got old and the PS Vita online connection was sketchy at best so I just gave up.

As you can see from the picture above, I was only able to get a whopping 3 trophies out of the 34 trophies this game had. I got one for starting the operations portion of the game, for getting melee kills, and for saving everyone in a certain operations game. That was it. Surprisingly there were no multiplayer trophies. Anyway, there are a bunch of trophies for basically being badass at this game. Sadly I suck at this game with all of its different modes and this was all I was able to get.

Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.

I really have no interest in playing this game again and it’s not even installed on my PS Vita anymore. The only fun I had was the multiplayer and I’m pretty sure by now it’s dead. I could be wrong, but I doubt that any of the connection problems were fixed and while those can be overlooked for a period of time, eventually you get to that point where you can’t overlook them anymore. So for that reason, I will take my pathetic 3 trophies, giving me a D rating in this game according to PSNProfiles.com and be on my way.

Now it’s your turn. Did you get this game with the purchase of your PS Vita or did you go for Madden? If you went for Madden do you feel like you made the right choice? Or did you get this game? Love it? Hate it? Let me know down in the comments section and next week, I’ll tell you how I was roped into getting another game by my “friend” and played half-way through it until she made some new friends and I was just an embarrassment and got stuck with this game and never finished it. You would think that after Dead Island I would have learned my lesson, but I didn’t and that’s why I’ll tell you next week why I never finished Dead Island Riptide.
