Here we go, a first attempt at putting together a gaming commentary video. I hope you guys enjoy it. Feel free to comment with any advice, criticisms and similar such things.
Over the last month, my objective was to finish four games that were in my backlog. I did just that. Those games were in order of completion:
- Thirty Flights of Loving (PC)
- El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (X360)
- Persona 4 (PS2)
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)
Now would I do this again, probably not any time soon. Clearing a backlog can sometimes be a stressful experience especially when trying to do it under a time limit.
When you get to a rather difficult part of a game that’s stressing you out, it’s probably best to put the game down and leave it for a while. I was trying to power through it, so I got rather angry at things rather quickly.
Also I am studying at university, playing games to finish them does not go well with having to get work done. I think I have to slow down at this point, as things are really starting to pick up in terms of work.
At the moment I am playing Chrono Cross, and I am rather enjoying taking that game slow, it feels like the right kind of game for that style of play. There’s something about Squaresoft RPGs from the early 2000s I can really get into, they feel as if they have some sort of consistent atmosphere, all being about the stranger in a strange land reforming the world he ends up in. You can really see it in Final Fantasy X and the first Kingdom Hearts.
Anyway, my approach to my backlog is going to be much more relaxed for the time being, I have more important things to be focusing on, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be putting up some content on here. There’s some pretty good stuff coming that I’m kind of excited about putting on here.
