|Like the first Police Quest, there's always a mention of how hot Sonny's girlfriend Marie is.|
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 = 48%
Anyway, the good news is I managed to "acquire" a microscope from the hospital and I took it back to Rodia. Now the doctor there wants us to examine the town's well for parasites. The Desert Rangers get all the fun jobs, don't they?
Homefront: The Revolution
- Picked by Luke
- Percentage Complete = 100%
It's interesting to note that just prior to the credits rolling, the developer leaves a note describing how tumultuous the development cycle was for Homefront: The Revolution and how they lost a lot of staff along the way. I suspect this is true when it comes to the development of many games but it's good for the public to be reminded every so often that games are created by people.
So, somehow, at the end of the game, despite you and Parrish being both half-dead, and Dana heroically sacrificing herself by destroying a Goliath attack vehicle, you manage to successfully disable all the "dusters" meaning that the SAMs had a clear shot at destroying the airships.
So now that Homefront: The Revolution is out of the way, it's time to move on to Fallout 4!
Police Quest II: The Vengeance
- Picked by Choona
- Percentage Complete = 4%
I'm currently at the Lytton Police Department's shooting range and trying to adjust the sights of the gun. I'm not sure when enough is enough with respect to adjusting the sights so I just hope the game lets me know when I'm done. Unfortunately, I'm out of ammo clips for my gun though so I hope to God I can get more (or else I'll have to restore the game for the first time).
As is the norm with Police Quest games, it can get quite pedantic with what actions you have to take. For example, you have to explicitly specify to take the keys out of the ignition when you first arrive at the station!
