A Gaming Journal.4

A week ago I bought Dark Souls 3 on xbox one from the Japanese store and have been in gaming heaven. Alas now after 30ish hours I'm stuck. This version doesn't currently have the servers for the online component available and without help I've hit a wall on the two bosses I currently can fight.

I'm on a Halo 5 kick, playing it daily. On my way to beating Rise of the Tomb Raider. I like that game so much I went ahead and got this DLC:

I don't fucking like The Division and the obscene amount of schilling for it in various gaming sites I was following on twitter made me unfollow them. I'm looking at you VG247. The Street Fighter 5 beta has been pretty good, HYPED for the game's release next month.

Game journal week 1
I wish I had a kept a gaming journal during all 12 years of this blog's existence but better late than never. I'm going to try it this year. I'm going through a bit of an ADD period with games. I have a huge backlog from the massive amount of releases last fall. And then even older titles than that showing up in the rotation.

Highlights

  • Playing with my Destiny Waifu Sara using the really neat Refer A Friend feature in Destiny. Shout out to Jafku, the MVP of our Fireteam, who got the Platinum Trophy for the game.  
  • Playing U2 songs in Rock Band 4.
  • Finally being amazed by Super Mario Maker. Nintedo better wise up and give us a Zelda and Metroid maker in the future.

Check out Sara's awesome Legend of Zelda tattoo:
