XBox Update: January 17th, 2019
How the hell has it been 2 and a half months since my last update on here about XBox? I swear it feels like maybe 4-6 weeks.
That’s pretty bad ha.
So anyway last time I just wrapped up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I decided to start Red Dead Redemption 2 next but after devoting 2-3 hours to that and barely scratching the surface I realized that yeah – this isn’t the game for me at this time.
With how little I am playing Xbox currently there’s no way I can invest time into a game like that just yet. Same reason I am not playing The Witcher 3 or anything like that.
I also launched a new website – BetSoccer.ca: daily soccer betting tips – which has taken up a lot of my time. I launched it prior to the World Cup and it’s been tough keeping it going. So that’s cut into my video gaming quite a bit too.
I ended up going with Dead Rising 3. This was the perfect game. A lot of fun. A lot of action. Able to quit when I wanted. So I could play it for two hours or play it for 30 minutes and it was a nice short game. Beat that with 32/52 achievements, 545/1000 gamerscore. Onto the “to wrap up” list it goes as I’ll go back and grind away at it sometime.
I had a lot of fun with it but with games like that I’ve gotten tired of going back just to grind for achievements. Much prefer just doing a second playthrough down the road when it is more fresh.
I next started up Brave, the Disney Pixar game. I’ve always wanted to play that since it was Games with Gold. I just love those easy but fun platformers more aimed at kids and this was a great one. Had a lot of fun with it. 32/44 achievements, 615/1000 gamerscore. I MIGHT go back and grind a few achievements but it’s on the “to wrap up” list for now.
I also played a bit of It’s Quiz Time with the family. Decent enough I guess.
That’s it so far. I’m not sure what game I am going to start next. My backlog is ridiculously gross so I’ll have to see. I keep floating between XCom2 and well anything else. We shall see.
