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.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
- Picked by Me
- Percentage Complete = 69%
- Picked by Luke
- Percentage Complete = 48%
Now I have a mission to clear an area so that the Railroad can create a new safehouse... I get a feeling this is very similar to the missions the Minutemen give for clearing new settlements, i.e. Radiant Quests. I think I'll pass...
I'm also running out of ammo again… probably didn't help that I encountered a Deathclaw in the basement of what was formerly the Augusta Safehouse!
Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail
- Picked by Choona
- Percentage Complete = 11%
However, after starting to read the walkthrough I was quite relieved to find I wasn't that far off in solving the first part of the game prior to King Arthur leaving Camelot. I did everything I needed to do with Guinevere, I did everything I needed to do with Merlin, I did everything I needed to do in the Treasury although I didn't provide proper offerings at the altars. So, the game is actually not too convoluted as of yet despite the hints in the manual making it out to be that way.
One thing I do love about this game are the references to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". For example, there's an easter egg where if you type "ham and jam and spam a lot" in the Treasury, you get treated to some knights dancing to the tune "Knights of the Round Table". I hope I don't have to push the PRAM A LOOOOOT.
