For the last few days, I’ve been mostly playing Civilization IV, so nothing special there. I’ve also played some other games.
Far Cry 2 (PC)
Reached 52% on Far Cry 2 and stopped there. The game started out good, but now it’s getting really boring, really fast. It’s just the same old thing over and over again. It turns out I got it a bit wrong. Those faction leaders weren’t really faction leaders, but just the local bosses, so there’s a whole bunch of guys to kill. I also got a few new buddies. I hope they won’t die this time.
The Witcher – Enhanced Edition (PC)
I started the original, but never completed it. Since this came out, I decided to try again. I didn’t play much; just the tutorial intro, up to my first meditation.
Final Fantasy XII (PCSX2 – PC)
Since some PCSX2 plugins got updated, I can finally play this game on the PC. It works almost flawlessly. In five hours of gameplay, it crashed only once. I got to the part where I have to save Penelo with the airship. Vaan is level 10.
I installed this one about two weeks ago, but I haven’t been playing it much. I don’t know why, because the game is excellent. I played almost the entire day yesterday and got the story 22% complete. I also completed a bunch of side quests, and finally got a new stash of malaria pills. One of my buddies is now missing in action, sadly. I didn’t notice he was in trouble, so by the time I realized it, he was already gone. I don’t know if he comes back after a while, so I’m doing missions for other buddies, including the one I saved recently. I will try to play some more today.
EDIT: I’ve completed 42 percent of the story and got to a whole new area of the game which is, as far as I can tell, as big as the first one. I lost all of my buddies in a gunfight, but I think that’s how it was supposed to happen. The leaders of both factions are now dead, so I’m not really sure what will happen next.
I had computer trouble for the last month, as well as other obligations. That is way I haven’t been able to write here. I did play some games, though. Also, since I have a new computer now, I decided to reset my PC “Currently playing” list.
While away, I’ve completed the main Disgaea DS story, which opened up Etna mode. I’ve also completed Gears of War for the PC. I’m currently playing Far Cry 2 which I like a lot, as well as some other games.
