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…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.


Most Anticipated Game for June 2018

June 2018

Holy hell it’s going to be June already. Half of this year is gone and while I’m not really looking for that much of an eventful month with E3 right around the corner, there has to be something coming out in June right? Right? Take a look at the list down below and then take a look to see if I’ll be playing anything new.

*Just as a side note, my list of June releases is not perfect. There might be some missing, or some dates may change. If you have anything you want to add feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll include it in the list.*

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset – PS4
Onrush – PS4
Nobunaga’s Ambiion: Taishi – PS4
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr – PS4
Vampyr – PS4
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle – PS4

Tempest 4000 – PS4
Super Bomerman R – PS4

LEGO The Incredibles – PS4

SteamWorld Dig 2 – PS4
Yoku’s Island Express – PS4
The Lost Child – PS4

New Gundam Breaker – PS4

The Crew 2 – PS4
Psychedelicaof the Ashen Hawk – PS Vita

And that’s the round up of games coming out in June. It’s a decent list for a middle of the year month. I have a couple of games on my personal radar like Vampyr and LEGO The Incredibles, but that’s about it. While I know for sure I won’t be pre-ordering LEGO The Incredibles, I’ll purchase it on sale at the holiday time like I usually do with my LEGO games, I’m not sure about Vampyr. I really like what I’ve seen with this game, but it comes out first thing in June and I’ll probably still be playing Detroit: Become Human, or the way things are going I’ll still be trying to finish up God of War. Anyway, I’m not sure yet if I’ll pre-order Vampyr or wait for a sale.

Now it’s your turn. Anything for June that you’re super interested in? Any day one games for you? Or will you be sticking to your backlog and waiting for E3? Let me know down below in the comments section.


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


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


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.


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.


Most Anticipated Game for May 2018

May 2018

I probably start all of these blogs like this, but man this year is really flying by as I’m already talking about games coming out in May. I mean, doesn’t it feel like this year just stared and now it’s to its halfway point? I mean that’s great and all because there are some stellar games coming out later in the year and not to mention getting all the hype from E3 which is in June, but seriously time fly’s so it’s time for another blog about what’s coming out in May and what I’ll be playing.

*Just as a side note, my list of May releases is not perfect. There might be some missing, or some dates may change. If you have anything you want to add feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll include it in the list.*

Megadimension Neptunia VIIR – PS4
Warhamer 40,000: Inquisitor – PS4
Conan Exiles – PS4

Dragons Crown Pro – PS4
Hitman: Definitive Edition – PS4

SteamWorld Dig 2 – PS4
Space Hulk: Deathwing – PS4
Tennis World Tour – PS4

Dark Souls Remastered – PS4
Detroit: Become Human – PS4
7’scarlet – PS Vita

Owlboy – PS4
Streetfighter 30th Anniversary Collection – PS4
SEGA Genesis Classics – PS4

That’s a decent amount of games coming out for May, but what I’m most excited for and a game that I’ve already pre-ordered and desperately want to play is…Owlboy. Yes I know, it’s shocking right? Did you think it was going to be something else? If you thought it was going to be something else then you’re totally right because I’ve been waiting to play Detroit: Become Human which is my most anticipated game for May. I’m sure Owlboy is going to be great though (maybe.) Anyway, I love that Detroit: Become Human is finally coming out and I’m excited to play it, just not excited on the date which falls right on the weekend that I’m going to MegaCon. Really PlayStation? It just means that I’ll have to wait until Monday to play it instead of Friday, but that’s fine.

Now it’s your turn, what are you looking forward to playing this upcoming month? Anything on this list interests you or will you be sticking to your backlog. Everyone has one and I can completely understand just wanting to stick to it and not play anything new. Let me know down in the comments section and as always, I’ll be back next month letting you know what game I’m anticipating the most for June.


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…Dead Island…Because (PS3)

Dead Island

While this game was on my radar and I had seen the promos for it, I just knew that it wasn’t going to be a game for me so I never went out and bought it. That was until my “friend” said how it would be a great game for us to play together and we could play the whole game from start to finish together and blah blah blah. Anyway, like the sucker that I am, I went out and bought the game. It’s on this list though so I never finished it. Keep reading to find out why.

Dead Island is about a zombie outbreak at a tropical resort. You can play as one of four characters who are immune to the zombie bite. You’ll make your way through the island doing various different tasks for different people as you try to escape. While you do this there are zombies popping out everywhere and you’ll have to take care of them by any means necessary. At first that means you’ll be using basic weapons like a stick to bash their brains in and later on it means using these really cool weapons that you can craft to really mess those zombies up.

So like most games my “friend” talked me into playing, I started this game with her but finished the story of the game alone. What was the reason for that again…oh that’s right, I just seemed like I didn’t have the time to play so she went ahead and just completed the game since I was so busy. Whatever. After playing until about mid game with her I was kind of tired of it anyway since we have two different playing styles. Even though I finished the story of the game, it just never felt like one of those games to go back to so I didn’t. Funny because years later I bought it for the PS4 and did exactly the same thing, I’ll have to tell you why one of these days. I enjoyed the game enough to say that I’ll go ahead and play again in order to get the platinum trophy, but it never happens. It just feels like when the game is done, it’s done. There are no choices to make that will make the game different so it’s just the same thing over and over again with different characters.

As you can see from the picture above I was able to get 30 trophies out of the 49 base trophies, 59 trophies all together if you could the DLC. Not bad for one whole playthrough of the game. I’m missing a bunch of random things though and I don’t own the DLC so I’ll never get 100%, but if I wanted to get the platinum for this game I still could. The trophies I’m missing are pretty basic and just require me to play the game, or at least the first act, three more times, do some random things and play online. None of those should be a problem and when I felt like playing this game, which I did last year, I should have just hooked up the PS3 version instead of starting on the PS4.

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

Dead Island

This game isn’t really high on my list of priorities at the moment. I’m trying to finish a bunch of games and as much as I like beating zombies with a stick, I would rather be playing something else. One day, probably when they announce that the servers will be closing for this game, I’ll rush to try and get the online trophies and then actually play this game again.

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate it? Wish you never played it in the first place? Looking for a co-op partner? Let me know down in the comments section below. I’m always willing to play a game that I have zero interest in revisiting if someone else is going to be playing. Anyway, for next week it was time for some more alone time which meant that I switched over to my PS Vita. Now I was never one of those COD people, but this game came with my PS Vita so after putting it off, I figured why the hell not. Even though this game made me a kind of COD fan, I also never finished it. I’ll let you know why I never finished Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.
