|Anne sings a beautiful ditty as the game comes to a close|
The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.
Wasteland 2: Director's Cut
- Picked by Me
- Percentage Complete = 20%
I'm again quite impressed by the extra dialogue options you get when you've invested points in either Kiss-Ass, Hard-Ass or Smart-Ass: there was one guy at Ranger Citadel that was getting pushy about having the squad buy stuff from him. Further probing with the Hard-Ass dialogue choice from one party member and then the Kiss-Ass dialogue choice from another resulted in the squad convincing this guy to build up the courage to leave the Citadel and reunite with his sister at the Rail Nomads Camp. Neat!
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
- Picked by Luke
- Percentage Complete = 100%
I managed to slip past Torres's fleet thanks to a Spanish Man-o-War leading one of the English Man-o-Wars astray and away from my objective… NOICE.
I then completed the final mission which was set at the Observatory, although it took me a few goes since there were many times that I plunged to my death.
The game has a pretty good epilogue which I'm quite pleased about, since I always appreciate it when a developer takes the time and effort to wrap up a game properly (I've played way too many games where this isn't the case and you usually experience a disappointing rush job). It's quite touching that Kenway has a reason to live once he returns to England.
And now that Assassin's Creed IV is out of the way, it's time for Luke's next pick from the Pile of Shame: Homefront: The Revolution!
Space Quest I
- Picked by Choona
- Percentage Complete = 52%
