I Never Finished..DuckTales: Remastered…Because

DuckTales Remastered

This is a game of my childhood that I just absolutely loved and I had to have this game day one so I pre-ordered it digitally. Something I had never done before just to get back some of that nostalgia that I had for this game. So a little backstory before I get into this version of the game that I never finished. Before there was such a thing as Blockbuster, there used to be these little corner mom and pop video rental stores and each week I would walk with my dad to our normal one. I would head to the video games section and he would head to the movie section as he picked out our horror movie of the week to watch along with a cartoon to even things out. I was about 4 at the time, I’m really showing my age here, and there were two games that we would rent out on a weekly basis. It was basically DuckTales and Jaws. Anyone remember the NES game Jaws? Let me know down in the comments section if you do. Anyway, these were my two go to games week after week. Unfortunately, when it came out for the PS3, I never finished it.

In DuckTales: Remastered, you play as Scrooge McDuck who is the richest duck alive. This is all based on the cartoon series that they had out way back in 1989. So basically, you travel around the world as Scrooge to find more money because Scrooge loves his money. You’ll go to exotic places like the Amazon and even far out places like the Moon in order to just search for treasure and take out some baddies along the way in this 2D/3D platformer.

As much as I loved this game as a child and still do, I mean who doesn’t love jumping into that pile of money and just swimming around in it? I mean, unrealistic of course, but isn’t it just the best thing to do in the whole game? Anyway, as much as I loved this game it was just insanely hard which is why I never finished it as a child or as an adult. I guess this is one of those games where you can say I’ve spent my whole life playing and never even finished it. I don’t know if that’s sad or just really good dedication.

There are a total of 20 trophies for this game, and I was able to get a total of 9 of them. Not bad, but not great either. To tell the truth, I really didn’t care about the trophies all that much and the only one that I really wanted was for jumping into the money. Anyway, I’m missing a bunch of trophies still like for finishing the game, beating a bunch of bosses, and doing a bunch of random things. Not the most difficult trophies, but if you’re not an expert platformer then they’re just not that fun.

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

I loved this game as a child and continue to love it as an adult. I can see myself playing this game again. Not for trophies, but just to play and have some of that childlike nostalgia back for a day or so. It’s one of those games that will always make me happy when I play even if it frustrates the hell out of me when I keep dying time and time again.

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate it? Play the original NES version like I did? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now for next week, it just seemed like I couldn’t get away from the platformers no matter how hard I tried. I have no idea why I keep playing them because I actually suck at them really bad. This game was different though and I’ll explain next week as I also tell you why I never finished Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

I Never Finished flOw…Because

flOw

I bought this game because it had the promise of being not as sophisticated as Journey, but it had some promise like Flower. Also, it was underwater and for some reason I just love underwater games. Anyway, you know the whole deal though if it ended up on this list I never finished it and there’s a reason for that.

flOw is about…I have no idea what the hell this game was about. This is one of those rare time when I have to look something up and tell you what this game was about. This game is basically about evolution as you go through the ocean and start out as this little organism and grow into something larger. You basically eat your way up the food chain and go from there. Sounds a lot like a different take on Feeding Frenzy, but it is what it is.

I just did not get this concept at all with flOw and after a few attempts, I will admit that I gave up on this game. It wasn’t the game that I was expecting and I think there was one major factor that had to do with me not finishing this game. That factor being that there is no guidance to tell you what to do at all. You just start the game when the game starts. I’m one of these people that need some kind of structure and purpose in a game and can’t just wander around aimlessly so my first try was a bust and then the few times after that were also a bust and then I just basically gave up. Lack of understanding though was a huge reason on why I didn’t finish this game.

As you can see from my lovely trophy snapshot above, I was able to get a total of 2 out of the 13 trophies for this game, 14 if you could the DLC. Can you believe this game had DLC? Anyway, I got one trophy for starting the game after installing it and one for completing the game which I didn’t even know that I did. Everything else is just blank, but they probably aren’t difficult to get if I tried. They involve eating and playing with four people at once. It’s a doable trophy list, but only if you have the time and patience.

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

This is one of those games that I don’t even know if I want to get into again and see what I was missing and if I can understand it again, because it just feels like a waste of time. I know that’s horrible to say, but it just does. I could spend a couple of hours playing this game and getting the trophies and understanding what’s going on, but why when I have a backlog a mile long? If I ever contained my backlog, I might go back to it at some point, but I can’t see that happening at this point.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Understand it on a different level and want to tell me about it? Go ahead and head down to the comments section and let me know. Now for next week, a game that I loved as a child. I loved it because I remember my dad renting it for me time and time again. I mean he should have just bought it because that’s how many times we rented it, but whatever. I made sure to pre-order this game before it even came out and before this I never did that digitally. Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished DuckTales: Remastered.

I Never Finished…Deus Ex: Human Revolution…Because

Deus Ex Human Revolution

So at this point in my gaming history we are basically at my, “screw it” phase. This meant that I would play whatever the hell I wanted and if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t force myself to play it like I had done in the past. I would just stop playing it because I wanted to play games that I actually liked and not fell forced to finish a game. Anyway, this all kicked off with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It didn’t start like that though and I thought I would genuinely like this game. Turned out I never finished it though so keep reading to find out why.

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, you play as Adam Jensen. Adam is an ex SWAT team member and now works a humble job of being head of security at Sarif Industries. Too bad all of that goes to hell within the first fifteen minutes of the game as a terrorist attack on the place leaves him barely alive and his girlfriend Megan dead. After that Adam will be genetically modified in order to save his life and will then go around trying to take down the guys that attacked Sarif Industries and maybe uncover something not so great about Sarif Industries.

I played this game for two reasons. One because it was free thanks to PS+ and second because it was an RPG. I loved, and still do, RPG’s at that time and was totally into them. I was ready to immerse myself into this game and spend 100’s of hours exploring the area that was given to me. Problem was that it was a First Person Shooter RPG and those I do not like. I don’t know why but I don’t feel as immersed in an RPG if it’s also a FPS. That’s just me though. It also the reason why I never finished this game. I just couldn’t get into it and believe me I tried. I got to the first major boss battle, did a bunch of side missions and just couldn’t get into the game so I stopped and went on to play something else. Don’t get me wrong though, I was really liking this game and was prepared to play over and over again to get the platinum trophy, but I just couldn’t get over that this game was an FPS RPG. It just wasn’t my type of game and I really hate that because I thought the story was solid and was liking the whole thing.

There area 50 trophies for this game, 60 if you count the 10 from the added on DLC, and I was able to get 19 of them. Not bad really considering that I played for a short amount of time, did one main mission and the rest were all side missions. So of course I’m missing your standard trophies for finishing the game on all the difficulties, finishing side quests, choosing different options in side quests, boss battles, and all that good stuff. Nothing really that couldn’t be done and of course I missed the ending that had everyone talking, and not in a good way.

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

Playing this game again isn’t a real priority for me. I know I should give it a chance and actually play through the game and see how it goes, but the whole FPS RPG thing really gets to me and I just can’t play like that. Separately, I like FPS games and I love RPG games so this should work, but it just doesn’t. I can’t get over that so I don’t think I’ll be playing this game again.

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate this game? Want to rage about an ending that I’ve never even seen even though it’s been thrown down into the bucket of bad endings like Mass Effect 3? Let me know down in the comments section below. As for next week, a game that I thought I would be playing until I finished it, but could never really understand the concept of it or what was going on. That game that I’m talking about is flOw. So next week, I’ll let you know why I never finished it.

I Never Finished…Mirror’s Edge…Because

Mirror's Edge

I had originally seen this game back some time at E3 when it was first announced and thought that it looked super cool and it was one of those games that I had to have and I was just going to love it to bits because of all the running and jumping and action. Turns out though it was pretty forgettable because I didn’t remember it until I found a used copy of it. Remember how badly I had wanted to play it at one time, I decided to pick it up and give it a go, but you know the deal if it’s on this list I never finished it.

In Mirror’s Edge you’ll get the chance to play as Faith Connors. Faith is a runner. Not like a track runner, but a message delivery runner who has to jump across buildings, scale ventilation ducts, and scale walls in order to deliver messages. While doing this she also has to avoid the government in this first person platforming parkour game. Just doing her job, one day Faith finds out that her sister is in trouble and the spends the rest of the game trying to get her out of the trouble that she’s in.

I hated this game from the moment that I first started playing. I know that’s a highly unpopular opinion and you can complain about it in the comments section, but that’s just me. I didn’t like the story, I didn’t like the parkour style of the game, which I was now used to in Assassin’s Creed, and I just didn’t like the platforming in first person. This wasn’t the game that I thought it was when I first seen it way back when it first was shown off at E3 and I was severely disappointed. I finished the main story of the game in three days flat, because at that point of my gaming history, I at least had to finish the game, put it away and never looked back.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get a total of 17 out of the 45 base trophies the game has to offer, 51 if you count the DLC. This was for doing all of the story missions and getting around to doing the various different things this game wanted you to do. Some of the trophies included were difficulty related, movement related, and time trials. Such a fun trophy list.

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

Mirror's Edge

That’s right a 0 probability of me ever playing this game again. Why 0? Because I hated this game. Hated it. I can’t spell it out enough how much I truly hated this game. Let me try it this way. If this was the only game left on the planet I would give up gaming altogether and live a game-less life. That’s how much I truly hated this game, so I can never see myself playing it again and have no interest in anything else to do with this series.

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate it, like me? Let me know down in the comments section. After Mirror’s Edge it seemed like I was just on a roll with games that I would end up not liking, but after the hassle of finishing this game, which I hated, I decided to just say screw this and if I didn’t like a game I wasn’t going to even bother finishing it. That leads us to my next game that I never finished and that’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I’ll let you know why I never finished that one next week.

I Never Finished…XCOM: Enemy Unknown…Because

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

I have to say that even to this day, I will still play this game every now and again because I really do love this game to pieces. I’ll never finish it, for reason’s I’ll explain in a little bit, but it’s just one of those games that keeps me coming back no matter how many times I play. Instead of me going on and on and gushing about this game here, let’s get on with it and see why I never finished it.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a strategy based game where the aliens have invaded and it’s up to you to lead a team of XCOM agents to victory against the aliens. You’ll be doing this in full strategy mode though as you play this sort of chess game with the aliens. Not only that, but you’ll get to build your base of operation. There you’ll research these aliens that have invaded, gain intel, and power up your soldiers. Will you be able to take down the alien resistance or will you lose it all? That’s the main point of the game and believe me, it’s no easy task.

I want to say right off the bat that even though I love this game, it is the hardest game that I’ve ever played. I mean seriously, no game that I’ve played since playing this game has been able to match the difficulty that is XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Like I said though, even though it’s difficult and even on the easiest mode you can easily just lose with the blink of an eye if you make the wrong choices, I still love this game. I love the challenge it presents each and every time that I play and I’ve played a lot. No matter how much I play though, this is just one of those games that I’ll never finish and I think my trophies for this game have basically peaked since I’ve only been able to fully complete the game once. So there you have it, this game is basically way too difficult and because of that it will forever remain on this list.

Out of the 51 base trophies for this game, 56 if you count the DLC, I was able to lock down and secure 30 of those trophies. Being as how the game is really that difficult, it was no easy feat and I’m pretty happy with the trophies that I have considering that the platinum trophy for this game has a statistic of 0.96% (PSN Profiles) / 0.4% (PSN). I would say that I’m not the only one who didn’t finish this game. I’m missing a bunch of random trophies that you get for doing random things and I’m also missing the trophies for beating the game on the different difficulties. Other than that, I’ve pretty much got done everything else.

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

So while I know that I will never get another trophy for this game again, I still hook it up from time to time because I enjoy it so much. Do I end up dying a lot, sure, but it’s one of those games where I don’t care. I think that every time I fail it only makes me better. Not better enough to actually get all the trophies for this game, but better enough that I don’t make the same stupid mistakes during my next playthrough.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this chess with aliens type of game or did you hate it? Have the platinum trophy and want to brag about it because you sure as hell deserve to? Do all of your bragging and loving and hating on this game down in the comments section below and for next week, a game that I thought I would absolutely love and had been waiting a hell of a long time to play. Unfortunately, it ended up on this list so I’ll let you know why I never finished Mirror’s Edge.

I Never Finished…Fat Princess…Because

Fat Princess

This is one of those games that I had heard a lot about and it was on my radar, but I was unsure if I should pay full price for it. When I seen this game go on sale, I picked it up immediately and started playing just to see what all the fuss was about since I had seen other people on my friends list at the time playing and just heard so much about this game. Unfortunately, it was another game that ended up on this list so keep reading to find out why.

Fat Princess is basically a strategy game. There are a bunch of different modes to play on, including a story mode that I probably got about two levels into and then there’s multiplayer mode which is where I spent most of my time playing. In this multiplayer mode, there are two teams of 16 for a total of 32 red and blue players. Your main objective is to rescue your princess from the other team’s camp and bring her back to your camp. Sounds easy right? Wrong, it’s a huge cluster fuck of people running around and just being crazy.

So I tried the single player mode and had no idea what I was doing or what this game was even about. Abandoning the single player mode, I jumped into the multiplayer mode because why the hell not. Turns out because I knew nothing about the game I knew nothing about the multiplayer mode either. What was I supposed to do? What class was I supposed to play? How was I supposed to help my team? I had the answer to none of these questions and after multiple attempts to play this game I just gave up and put it on the shelf telling myself that one day when I had less games to play I would get back to it and figure out how to play.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get a total of 2 trophies out of the 21 main trophies for this game, a total of 27 if you count the DLC. So yeah, this just wasn’t my game and I consider myself lucky for getting the trophies that I did when I got them. There are a bunch of other grindy multiplayer trophies for this game are just insane unless you play this game 24/7 for at least a few weeks or maybe even months. There are some trophies for the other modes of this game, but the trophies are mostly for the multiplayer mode.

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

I’m never going to run out of games to play at the moment or probably ever so I can’t see myself playing this game again. Also the recent player count is at 11, so I doubt I would even be able to get the multiplayer trophies for this game or even get into a match. This will forever be one of those games that I was just curious about, tried it, found out I was bad at it and didn’t understand it, and gave up. That’s ok, because some games are just like that.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate this game? Understand this game? Let me know down in the comments section below. After playing this game I had a few good weeks of gaming where everything I played I got the platinum trophy for so it was a while before I actually had a game that I didn’t finish and that game was XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I absolutely loved this game to pieces, but still never finished it so come back next week so I can tell you why.

I Never Finished…Little Big Planet Karting…Because

Little Big Planet Karting

With my friendship already ruined, not because of the Little Big Planet franchise, I decided that if I couldn’t finish Little Big Planet 2, you can read about that here, I would go ahead and play this new PS+ free game, Little Big Planet Karting. What could possibly go wrong with this game? It was Little Big Planet, my little Liara sackboy transferred over, and it was about racing. Keep reading to find out why I never finished it.

This game basically takes the same Little Big Planet formula and adds in a go kart racing theme to it. Basically the main goal of this game is to play with other people, because it’s no fun to race by yourself, and to come in first place. There are of course a bunch of different tracks to race on, not to mention the user generated material, and along the way there will be some ammo drops to help you with the competition. This is basically PlayStation’s answer to Mario Kart, just not as successful.

I’m not going to say that I didn’t enjoy this game because the few times that I played it I did. It’s just that I really don’t like racing games and I should have known better because this was a racing game. SO this is a complete racing game, there is no in between. It’s just race after race after race after race. The track could look different each time, and does, but underneath it all it’s still just a racing game. Is it cute? Sure, but cute didn’t save this game or hold my interest in it to keep playing. So I never finished this game because of my lack of interest in it.

Out of the 45 trophies available for this game, I was able to get a pathetic 10 trophies. This is because I really didn’t even try. Like I said I’m not a fan of racing games, but that didn’t stop me from later on in this on going list from playing another one. You’ll have to wait to hear about that one, but for now this game had some really easy trophies and if I would have put some kind of effort into it, I could have gotten a lot more than just 10. I’m not saying that I would be able to platinum this game. Only really dedicated people can platinum Little Big Planet games and hats off to them, but I am not one of those people.

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

I really can’t see myself playing this game unless I had some kind of strange need to play all of the Little Big Planet games again for some reason. This is just one of those games that will sit on my list and never be finished. Sometimes games are just like that and even though I hate that I only got 10 trophies and I could at least get about 10 more, I just don’t want to.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game as much as you loved the other games in this franchise? Did you hate this game and think it was the worst in the franchise? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now for next week, a game that I had been waiting ages to play and was really excited when it was on sale so I picked it up. Unfortunately it wasn’t the kind of game I expected and after a couple of attempts to play it ended up on this list. So next time I’ll let you know why I never finished Fat Princess.

I Never Finished…The Last of Us…Because

The Last of Us

This was probably one out of three of the last PS3 games that I was super excited for and just couldn’t wait for it to come out because it was one of those over hyped exclusives and I just had to see if the hype was real. Not to mention it came from one of my top 5 studio’s for making AAA games, which is Naughty Dog. Anyway, you know the deal if it ended up on this list it means that for some reason I didn’t finish it so keep reading to find out why.

In The Last of Us, you play as Joel. Joel is one of the survivors of the outbreak of the cordyceps virus. He’s carrying some major baggage of his own and will be tasked with taking care of Ellie. Ellie is immune to the cordyceps virus and a group called the Fireflies want her. They want her to save the rest of the world and get rid of this virus hoping to make a vaccine from her. In order to get to the Fireflies, Joel will have to escort Ellie through some dangerous areas filled with people infected by the cordyceps virus and bandits, meet some dangerous and not so dangerous people, and then finally turn her over to the Fireflies. During this time though, Joel will bond with Ellie, something he never thought he would be able to do after suffering his own loss and will have to make the hardest decision of his life by the end of the game.

Within the first twenty minutes of playing this game I was in tears. Not like simple tears rolling down your cheek as you watch a sad game, but actual sobbing tears. I knew this game was going to be good from there on out, but the thing is that after that major scene in the beginning of the game, things kind of took a nose dive and went in the opposite direction. Things majorly slowed down and as much as I tried I couldn’t get into this game. It took me weeks to actually get to a part that just blew my mind away and then I couldn’t put down the controller until the story of the game was finished. By the end of the game, I was thoroughly impressed and emotionally captivated by this brilliant game. I even went to play the multiplayer, which I was horrible at, for a little while too before putting this game down. So the reason for not finishing it was basically that I felt like this was a one and done kind of game. Some great games are like that and that’s perfectly fine. This was one of those games for me. I had finished the game and seen the whole story play out, but I just couldn’t go back and play again.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get a 4 out of the base 24 trophies for this game, 50 all together if you count the DLC. The thing is, the game wasn’t filled with trophies like other games, because this was a serious game. It wasn’t some fluff game that had you shoot someone in the balls for a trophy. The trophy list was simple and just involved playing the game on all modes, playing on new game + modes, and collectibles. That was it. There were also multiplayer trophies and like I said before I was really bad at the multiplayer so that was out of the question. Anyway, I’m not upset about my 4 trophies since the platinum for this game is ultra-rare and for me it was just about the experience with the game and not the trophies.

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

The Last of Us

While I really thought that this game was amazing and groundbreaking, not to mention that I can’t wait for Part 2, I can’t see myself playing this game again. As I said before I experienced the story once and that was all I needed. This is one of the games where I really didn’t care all that much about the trophies and still don’t. While I ranked this as a one, there is a huge possibility that by the time the announcement of an actual release date for Part 2 comes out, I might go back and play this just because. If I do though it won’t be for the trophies and will be just to have some reference for the second game.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Fall in and out of love with it before ending up just loving it? Let me know in the comments section below. As for next week, I have to say that I really had no idea what to play at this time. I had no one telling me what to play and what not to play so I was free to do whatever, but when you’re given so many options it’s insane to try to pick just one game. Anyway, because I did enjoy playing Little Big Planet 2 even though I didn’t finish it, I decided I would play another free PS+ Little Big Planet game. This time it was Little Big Planet Karting. What could possibly go wrong with this and why did it end up on this list? I’ll let you know next week.

I Never Finished…Dante’s Inferno…Because

Dante's Inferno

This was one of those games that I had originally started playing before I even hooked up my PS3 to the internet, which means that most of the trophies I have for it don’t have a time stamp, and it’s a game that I used to rent from Blockbuster before the closed down and I had to buy the game. Anyway, I found a used copy of this game on sale and had the urge to play it because I was in complete and utter trophy hunting mode at this time. Anyway, after one more playthrough of this game, I thought I would be finished, but I wasn’t and here comes another reason why I could never finish a game.

In this game, that is loosely based off of Inferno the first canticle of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, you play as Dante. Dante is a crusader in the Third Crusade who has committed a bunch of war crimes even though he claims to be extremely religious. After dying himself and returning from the dead, his main goal is to get back to his love Beatrice. Unfortunately, Beatrice has been murdered and Dante must travel back to hell in order to save Beatrice’s soul. During his time in hell, Dante will have to face the nine circles of hell in order to reach Beatrice.

This game is very God of War like and is often compared to it, but I think that this game can stand on its own because the story is different. I have to say that I really enjoyed the story for this game and enjoyed playing it. I mean I have played it twice already, so I must enjoy something about it. The first time I played this game I just played it without worrying about trophies because I wasn’t a trophy hunter, but the second time was all about the trophies and I was able to pick up quite a few. So why if I enjoy this game did I not end up finishing it? Mostly because I was a little pissed off when I finished playing the second time. Even though I picked up enough trophies, I would still need one more playthrough and probably have to use a guide. I hate having to use a guide despite the occasional need for one, so I put this one back onto the shelf and ignored it.

As you can see from the picture above, my two whole playthroughs granted me a total of 28 out of the 43 base trophies for this this game, 55 total trophies if you want to count the DLC. That’s not bad for two full playthroughs. I think that if I was a trophy hunter the first time around when I played then I would have had the platinum for this game by now instead of missing a bunch of trophies for collectibles, absolving people, being all holy, and having a combo of 666. I think out of all of those trophies, which are totally doable, the only one I’ll have a problem with is the combo one because I really hate those and can never get them.

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

Dante's Inferno

I think it’s been long enough, 5 years, that I can go back to this game and finally finish it as long as I use a walkthrough. The only problem I’m going to have is hitting that combo of 666. I really hate the combo trophies! They’re kind of like the difficulty trophies. Annoying and they take a lot of time. They also make you enjoy the game less, but I think that the third time will be the charm and I’ll finally be able to get this platinum and maybe get it soon.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love Dante’s Inferno or hate it? Think it was too much like God of War and pushed it to the side? Let me know down in the comments section below. For next week, a game that I’m totally excited for the second part of. It’s a game that at first I thought was extremely slow and boring that I just couldn’t get into it, but then the tide turned and it was a game I couldn’t put down. Unfortunately, even though I couldn’t put it down I still couldn’t get the platinum trophy for it either. Next week I’ll tell you why I never finished The Last of Us.

I Never Finished…Portal 2…Because

Portal 2

Portal 2 had been on my radar for a long time. I had seen all of the meme’s, I didn’t understand them, but I knew that I wanted to play this game. Not just to understand the meme’s but to experience this game that everyone was just raving about. Anyway, my “friend” wanted to play it too. This was one of the games that she purchased because I purchased it. You know the deal though, if it’s on this blog it means I never finished it so keep reading to find out why.

Portal 2 is a first person puzzle platforming game that is so much more than that. In Portal 2, you’ll play as Chell who is dragged back into Aperture Science by GLaDOS after escaping in the first Portal when GlaDOS killed all Aperture Science employee’s. GLaDOS is Aperture Science’s AI that conducts experiments on human subjects, like Chell, to see if they could safely navigate dangerous test chambers using the portal gun. So it’ll be your job to go through each test chamber and see if you could navigate GLaDOS’s deadly traps and escape. It’ll take a lot of puzzle solving skills and involve some head scratching moments. You’ll have some help though this time around as a little personality core Wheatley will make sure that you get through everything alright and help you put a stop to GLaDOS once and for all…until he goes mad with power himself. Who’s the real bad guy in this game of puzzles, mystery, and fun? You’ll have to play to find out. Not to mention there is also multiplayer introduced into the Portal series with this game and you and a friend, or you and someone is about to not be your friend anymore, can navigate GLaDOS’s torture chambers together, figure out some pretty tough puzzles, and hopefully still be friends by the end.

I loved this game. I can’t stress that enough. Not only is it an amazing puzzle platforming game, but it has real heart to it. The story for the game is an amazing one, and I don’t want to ruin it for anyone so I won’t talk about it all that much. Not to mention this game is probably the funniest game that you will ever play. EVER. Not stupid funny either, like Saint’s Row. Which don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with things that are stupid funny. It’s just that this game is smart funny. Yes, there’s a difference and I really enjoy a game that is as challenging as this one. I completely finished the full game and was going to work on the multiplayer with my “friend.” This is where my friendship ended because apparently, I don’t know what I’m doing…blah blah blah (I’m the one that solved about 90% of those puzzles)…I’m not listening to what she has to say blah blah blah (Of course not because I told you that I wanted to watch the Sony Conference but you insisted that I do both instead of just playing when it was over)….I’m not paying attention to her and what needs to be done in the game…blah blah blah…oops, did I just accidently take away the bridge you were standing on causing your little character to die? Shit, maybe I should have listened more. I think that was the straw that broke the camel’s back because after that there was silence. Silence over Skype is deafening because you hear all the background shit but no one is talking. After completing the level we were on, my “friend” said that she was done. I thought she meant that she was done with the game, so we said goodbye. Apparently she was done with our friendship though and I never heard from her again. Anyway, after that night I just didn’t go back and play. I really don’t have a reason why, I just didn’t.

A Brief Note for a Former Friend So this is completely out of style for this blog and if you aren’t interested I completely understand you skipping over this part and going to what you actually want to read, but this blog is kind of like therapy in a way for me so I just have some things to say in case my “friend” is out there reading. So to my former “friend,” if you’re reading this you know who you are. How could you not? You still update my trophy profile on PSN Profiles from time to time. I’m not here to complain about that though, I’m here to apologize. Not for dropping you in Portal 2, because you totally deserved that and it got me a trophy, but to apologize for doing whatever it is that I did that turned you from my friend into my not friend. It’s been a long time now and I have some really great memories of us being friends, at times they’re bittersweet and at times they make me smile at the most random of times. I know it’s so cliché to think that someone is their “person.” You hear it in a lot of TV shows and movies, and it means that your “person” is the person that you go to when you have a problem, you’re best friends, but also more because you have this connection in a purely platonic way. I used to think this concept was stupid and pointless, but you made me think differently. I considered you my “person” and I thought you thought of me as the same. Maybe you did and maybe you didn’t, I’ll never know and I’ll also never know what I did to you that was so horrible for you to just stop speaking to me and for that I’m am truly sorry. I’m sorry that you couldn’t come to me and talk to me, I’m sorry if you think that I hurt you in any way, and I’m sorry that we stopped being friends even though our friendship was volatile at times. This made me truly learn that sometimes people just come into your life for a certain amount of time and serve a purpose before they leave again. They were never meant to stay for that long. I like to think that that’s what our friendship was. You were going through some stuff and I was going through some stuff and we came into each other’s lives at this point, helped each other through it, and our friendship served that purpose. Since I’ve complained about you, now it’s time for me to thank you. Thank you for helping me through my stuff, thank you for helping me come out of my shell at such a late age, thank you for helping me start over again because a lot of the stuff that I’ve done I would have never of done if I didn’t meet you, and thank you for being a friend when I needed it. I wish you nothing but the best going forward, I hope that you are happy and have everything you’ve ever dreamed of, and I hope that in some small way I was able to help you as much as you helped me.

Now back to the normal stuff that everyone is here for. So as you can see from the picture way at the top of this now very long page, I was able to get 27 out of the 51 trophies available for this game. That’s not bad considering that I only played through the whole game once. I still have to go back to the main campaign of the game and do some random things to get some random trophies and I still have a bunch of multiplayer trophies to get. These aren’t hard trophies and the main campaign trophies I could easily do in 1-2 sittings, it’s just the multiplayer ones that are going to be hard.

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

I really do love this game and would love to get back into the single player game, not only to get the trophies, but to pay again because this is a great game. I would also like to back and get the multiplayer trophies that I need and finally finish this game once and for all. Will this happen any time soon? At this point I’m really not sure. My gaming habits have been fickle as of late so you might see Portal 2 pop up on my weekly trophy blog or you may not. Just depends how I feel.

Now it’s your turn. Want to make some heartfelt confession to someone that used to be your friend? Feel free to do so in the comments section below. Love this game? Hate this game? Need someone to hug in the multiplayer, there’s a trophy for that you know, let me know down in the comments section below. Anyway, for next week, another game that I never finished. This is a really long list, just to let you know that will probably be never ending. So this next game is a game that I’ve been playing for a long time. I’ve tried so many times to get the platinum but I’ve always failed. Next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Dante’s Inferno.
