Take three..?

Okay so i’m back again, and most of you have probably forgotten about me – at one point i’d almost forgotten about myself.

 

But i’m here and back in full blogging spirit. Not quite sure what about, probably just insane ramblings from inside my imagination & my mind so;

– games

– movies

– music

pretty much sums it up.

 

Hope you’ve not all forgotten about me & hopefully I can gain some new followers too.

Hi ^-^

Hello I’m Lucy and I’m an addict..

In Uncategorized on February 24, 2013 at 2:06 pm

Hello I’m Lucy and I’m an indie game addict. It all started watching the yogscast sjin play prison architect and simon and lewis playing I get this call every day.

After seeing these I decided it would be a good idea to go have a peek at the greenlight section of steam since I hadn’t looked at it for a while and I ended up somehow getting from there to a different platform called Desura, basically like steam but more indie-focused.

Now, the reason I’m posting this is I wanna know if anyone else is as heavily addicted to indie games as me? Im starting to record my playthroughs and I’m gonna put them on here and YouTube. I don’t get why they are so addictive?! Some of the ones I play aren’t even good!

So to all avid gamers out there, check out http://WWW.desura.com and let me know if you play any of the games (many of them free) as I’m always looking for new things to play!

Damned if I do ya..

Okay so, rather than write you a review on Aliens/Far Cry 3/Crysis 3 or any other of the fab titles that were released this year, I’ve started a game that was released back in 2011 and probably wasn’t even hyped up at the time. It’s called Shadows of the Damned. Image

The story focuses around the guy on the cover art, Garcia, who is a Demon Hunter. He comes home one day and finds his girlfriend Paula (Angel as he so likes to call her) being abducted by Fleming, the Lord of the Demons. Basically long story short, Garcia follows Fleming back to the underworld with his sidekick Johnson who is pretty much a severed head that turns in to a gun and a motorcycle and a torch. He has to fight demons to save his precious girlfriend blah blah blah..

Now before you start, I got this game for a fiver from Blockbuster in their 4 for £20 game deal. Saw the cover, thought “cool” and decided to give it a whirl. It’s been sat gathering dust on my shelf for about 6 months now so I felt that now was the time to play it.

I must say, I’m only on the 2nd chapter (which is one of the longest) but I’m enjoying it. Theres lots of little jokes and quips that make you chuckle and take it away from being your typical “OMG LOOK DEMONS AND I HAVE NO AMMO WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? *CUE CUTSCENE” – There still are cutscenes but the main character isn’t a whiney little bitch like most main characters in demon games. Image

So far I have two guns, one named the Boner (lol.) and a shotgun whos name I don’t remember and I’m collecting Red Gems (upgrades) and White Gems (to spend on alcohol that heals you). All in all so far it’s a pretty good game. It’s nice for me to take a step back from all the franchises hogging the current market and play an older game that doesn’t have the influence of Halo/CoD/Battlefield/Forza/etc. and if I’m honest Shadows of the Damned is one of the first games i’ve played without reading a review for – which I’m not sure is a good or bad thing, but I love it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap time killer.

Oh and another thing that is awesome?! The gates are guarded by newborn baby heads that are freakishly ugly. How do you get the gates open, you might ask? Each baby asks for a different treat in order to let you pass. For example strawberries, brains.. yeah, messed up, but very cool when you take a step back and think – i’m trying to find a human brain for a dismembered baby head guarding a gate – what fun!Image

I’m looking forward to getting further in to this game, and I’m actually interested to see how the story progresses. So from me its a solid 7/10 and I would recommend it to anyone (except my little brother – he only likes shooty war games)

New year, new rules to break

In Uncategorized on January 6, 2013 at 10:26 pm

So I haven’t updated in a while, I apologise. But happy new year and I hope you had a merry christmas and so forth and etc.

 

I decided that my first new years post would be my new years resolutions. I know most of you probably aren’t interested in the silly targets I set myself but its more for me to look back on to remind myself. More of a personal dig shall we say, so here goes.

 

No 1 – Sort things out at work (I won’t go in to detail on this one)

No 2 – Move out of my mums house 

No 3 – Start my driving lessons

No 4 – Pass my driving test

No 5 – Have 100 Xbox games by June 15th

No 6 – Stop biting my nails (I try this every year)

No 7 – Stop starting new games before I’ve finished old ones.

 

I may add to these or elaborate on them if I’m feeling particularly angry at myself. If you do feel like you want to read this blog and/or comment on it, then drop me a comment, let me know what your resolutions are and how you stick to them! 🙂
