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.

Far Cry 3

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 75%
I've actually two new games this week that I've been playing: Command & Conquer: Remastered as well as a game by Kelsam (the creators of Simple Light Cycles) called Cymatically Muffed.

Eventually, I plan on finishing Far Cry 3 since I did play the game for about 19 hours and surely I must be close to the end… it might take some time for me to get re-acquainted to what I was actually doing though…

Fallout 4

  • Picked by Luke
  • Percentage Complete = 51%
Well, as promised, I spent a bit more time playing Fallout 4 this week and finished one of the main storyline quests.

I took a huge trek across the Glowing Sea (apparently where the nearest nuke went off in the Commonwealth I'm guessing). Thankfully, with Rad-X and Power Armour, the radiation didn't affect me too much. I had to take down three Deathclaws and a whole bunch of Radscorpions along the way though which wasn't too much fun (I now have almost no missiles left for my rocket launcher). Anyway, finally met with Virgil and he looks a bit like a Super Mutant nowadays. He says I need to find one of the Institute's assassin synths called Coursers in order to teleport into their base so that's what I've got to do next.

Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail

  • Picked by Choona
  • Percentage Complete = 44%
In my search for Galahad (and the Grail) I've made it to Jerusalem after taking a boat from Gaza. You apparently have to guess how much money to pay the harbourmaster but that's okay, no biggie. However, you're also meant to scare some of the locals in Gaza and Jerusalem with your sword but you need to know when that's okay and when you should bribe them instead. Lucky I have the walkthrough which helped in those instances but I must admit, most of the puzzles in this game are quite logical compared to other Sierra adventures which means I can mostly figure them out by myself.
