Not Weekly Round-Up Wednesday - 9th February 2023

Nashville the nation's capital, huh?

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Wednesday to update readers on what I've been playing during the week (this also includes games on my "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.

Battlefield 2042

Been enjoying Battlefield 2042 now that it isn't crashing like it was earlier. Sure I occasionally get kicked out but it's nowhere near as bad as before. Season 3 has almost come to an end so here's hoping there's some more news about Season 4 soon.

I'm now out on the search for Robot Modules and 50,000 credits in order to upgrade Bountiful Vista once again to have a ship dealer. Apparently there will be a lot of custom ships for sale but I'm quite happy with the Durston for now. It's almost fully upgraded and it's a powerhouse of a ship. Being able to dispatch several ships at once and even a few frigates is a good feeling. In terms of the storyline, it seems I'm helping out my old pirate gang but one mission actually gave me the choice to go the high or low road (in terms of deciding whether to commit robbery or execute civilians). I'm a bit uneasy helping pirates in general so I obviously went the high road and let the civilians free. It's good to see that the game isn't entirely linear and gives you some leeway in the main campaign.

Cook, Serve, Delicious 3!?

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 9%

I'm finding the game quite challenging now. I've added extra preparation stations so that may have something to do with it but you sometimes have requirements on each stage where you have to prepare food to a certain "level". Each food in the game is now marked with a level in terms of difficulty. So something that is level 0 is a food that is really easy to prepare whereas cooking a food that is rated level 4 is complex. A combination of these factors means I very rarely get gold medals now since just like the previous games, you only need to make one mistake in order to miss out on it.

I finished all the stages in Idaho and have now moved to the state of Utah. Apparently the point of the game now is to make your way to a cooking contest in order to potentially get your restaurant back. I'm guessing you serve food in all the states you'll visit along the way. I also had a bit of a chuckle when during the cutscene they mentioned the location of the contest was the nation's capital: Nashville, Tennessee. It wouldn't be my first pick for a new capital but in a future wracked by rising sea waters and increased natural disasters, who knows, maybe Nashville is the best place to relocate?
