It's been a slow week in the world ch33v0z, even with a NEW GAME from Gamefly! It's mostly my fault, and in some ways it's your fault... actually, it's mostly your fault. I received a couple of new games from Gamefly and both are just... awful. They are utterly boring and ridiculous! Of course I'm referring to Alone In The Dark and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. EM:QW has already been banished from my land of gaming, and AITD is well on it's way. I did however manage to rack up few paltry ch33v0z, here is a very quick review.
Alone In The Dark
Wired-Hotwire a car-10G
Car Thievery-Unlock a car door after breaking the window-10G
BLACKOUT-Finish the episode without skipping any sequence-30G
This game is complete crap. I'm sorry if you love it, or like it or whatever, but I think it just sucks. The controls are bad, the camera is bad, the targeting system is bad, and the inventory system is awful. So, bad,bad,bad, and awful! Sounds like a great game, right? I think there are a lot of good ideas, but they are put together in a shitty way. Meh, whatever...ch33v0z!
BLACKOUT isn't too hard to get, especially because the story isn't that bad. Just make sure you listen to everything they have to say, and you'll get this one.
Car Thievery and Wired are gained within 10 seconds of each other, just before your first driving scene. Besides the arduous task of trying to guide your clumsy character over to the car, and smash the window with some object or trying to get the car to start using the lame "hot-wire" mechanic, these two cheevos are easy to get. Of course the game developers half-assed the cheevo pictures, which annoys the fuck out of me.
Anyway, don't expect to see much more of this game in the future.
Battlefield: Bad Company
Hold on!-Completed 'Air Force One' on normal-15G
Ooh Rah-Achieved half of all awards-20G
The love affair continues! I'm still plugging away at the single player campaign to scoop up those normal difficulty cheevos, and hitting the multiplayer hard pretty much every day.
Ooh Rah is a great cheevo to finally get, because many of the awards can be difficult to get. This being one of my favorite games adds extra weight to a difficult ch33v0. Your tip for getting this one? I dunno... be a badass? That's what I did.
So that's it for the week, but I have another game on the way (hopefully not total shit) and we are on the precipice of a huge game flood that is called "the holiday season". Get your life boats ready, because we are going to be up to our necks in the sweet cheevoz.
