Ducking the Issue

Gosh, it's been over a month since my last post. I'm not exactly speeding through the backlist right now. It's been a tricky time - school holidays, new job, DIY - but hopefully things will start to settle down soon. The bad news is that because of my lack of games played, I've been making up for it by buying a ton of bundles, so the pile has just been growing larger and larger. Ah well. The good news is that I have actually completed a game! Duck Tales Remastered on the PS3. I've been playing it on and off with Max at weekends for a while, and we finally polished it off yesterday. It's a fairly faithful remake of the old NES version, an old-school platformer of the kind they just don't make anymore. The other great thing about the game is that you get infinite lives and start pretty much on the last screen you were on, so Max can play it for a while without getting too frustrated and having to get me to help him. It makes me proud! There were still a few parts I did have to help with - especially the bosses, but he did pretty well.I thoroughly enjoyed playing and watching it. Good stuff.

I haven't made so much progress on the other games. Inquisitor continues to plod on and grow increasingly impossible. I'm still on the second act of the game, but I've been getting through a few missions. I'll keep plugging away at it out of pure stubbornness, but hopefully it won't carry on for too much longer. I've chosen to take Shadowlands off the playlist for a minute. I'm sure I'll get back to it one day, but it's just too slow and fiddly for what I need right now. Moving ahead puts me on the Fallout games. Ooh. It's going to be slow, but I can't skip these. I've played the first one before, but I'll play it again. I think I've only played the second for a tiny while, so still everything to come. No idea, then, what's going to come next. Looking forward to it,
