I Never Finished…Foosball 2012…Because (PS3)

Foosball 2012 PS3

As I mentioned before I played this game on the PS Vita and didn’t even finish it. You can read about why I didn’t finish that version here. So why play this game then on the PS3 if I couldn’t play it on the PS Vita? My friend at the time didn’t have a PS Vita and wanted to play this game with someone. She knew I had both and wanted me to play on the PS3 with her instead of the PS Vita. I obliged since I had been spending some time with my PS Vita and felt a little bad although she did make me play two games previous which you can read about here and here that I not only didn’t finish but didn’t like. Moving on though, we played this game a few times and then I never finished it.

The point of this game was exactly the same as the PS Vita. There was no story, it was just a regular sports game where you picked your team and you went on your way with playing. It was simple. Just like the PS Vita it had the world tours mode which gave you a bit of a challenge.

Even though I enjoyed this game on the PS Vita, I really didn’t enjoy it on the PS3. I know that it was the same game, but I just liked playing it on my PS Vita a lot better. Maybe it was because I had some peace and quiet while I played. I guess in a way I’m just really like that. I have a much better time gaming when I’m playing by myself half the time then when I’m playing with other people. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy playing games with my friends, but I think every gamer needs that alone single player time. Anyway, like I had said I played this game because of my friend who ended up hating the game and then blaming me for making her play. This is a warning going forward, these next few I Never Finished…Because blogs will have some sort of drama attached to them. Seriously. It’s just a warning. Anyway, since she didn’t like it and threw a little temper tantrum, I also stopped playing on the PS3 and the PS Vita and ended up not finishing the game on either system.

As you can see from the picture above I was able to get 3 out of 12 trophies for this game. The funny thing is that they are exactly the same 3 trophies that I got on my PS Vita. The only thing I’m glad about is that even though I only gained 3 of the trophies that I have the one online trophy so if I want to go back and the servers are closed, I already have that trophy.

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

If I’m going to go back and play this game it will be on the PS Vita because like I said I enjoyed it a lot more on the PS Vita than I did on the PS3. Some games are just better with handheld systems. Anyway, I really have no intention of going back to this game on the PS3 any time soon.

Now it’s your turn. Did you also get this game free as a cross play? Did you love it? Hate it? Let me know down in the comments section below and now for next week a game that I played because I wanted some of that single-player alone time that I talked about before. For it to be an alone time game it had to be a PS Vita game because the friends lists didn’t sync up and no one knew when I was online which is why I thought Chronovolt was going to be perfect. Turns out it wasn’t and I’ll let you know why I never finished it next week.


I Never Finished…Foosball 2012…Because (PS Vita)

Foosball 2012

This was one of those free games that I got because of PS+ once again. There was a little catch with this one though, not only was the PS Vita version of this game free, but so was the PS3 version. I figured that this was great because if I enjoyed one, I would probably enjoy the other. Like every game that ends up on this list, this one also went unfinished. Keep reading to find out why.

There basically isn’t a story to this game. It’s a sports game, so at the time there weren’t really stories with them. You picked your team and you played. It’s really as simple as that. There were different modes for this game from world tours to online mode. The world tours was my favorite because you started off easy then went to harder and harder matches. Not a bad game, especially when it was free.

I really enjoyed this game and had a fun time playing. I couldn’t find anything wrong with this game and when I wasn’t playing on my PS3, I was totally hooked on this game. Being an “old school” foosball player. Anyplace that had a foosball table or air hockey table was where I was at when I was younger, I really enjoyed this digital version of the game. So why did it go unfinished? A really stupid reason actually. My friend at the time didn’t have a PS Vita, only a PS3 and she wanted to play with someone on the PS3, so I dropped my PS Vita version of this game and played on the PS3 instead. I don’t have to tell you, but that game also became unfinished and will make its appearance on this list shortly.

As you can see, I was able to get 3 of the 12 trophies for this game. The game really isn’t that hard, but it’s just time consuming and if you’re into it all of the trophies are really possible except for one luck based one. If you play this game enough though and hone your skills, this trophy list shouldn’t be a problem. While I’m not OK with only getting 3 trophies, it’ll have to do.

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

Even though I never picked up my PS Vita that much anymore, I have way too many games and no time to actually play each and every one of them, I would like to eventually play this game again. Since I usually use my PS Vita during hurricane blackouts, I guess we’ll have to wait until the next hurricane season to get his game installed on my Vita and play once more. Not that I’m looking forward to another hurricane or anything, believe me two in the past two years was totally enough.

So now it’s your turn. Did you also play this game on your PS Vita or did you play on the PS3? Love it? Hate it? Think it was a waste of time? Let me know in the comments section below and for next week another game I didn’t finish. Surprised right? Because at the time I was totally in love with my PS Vita, it just happens to be another PS Vita game that was also free. I’m telling you, I have a bunch of games for my PS Vita, and I probably paid for maybe two of them. Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.
