This sure was a week, wasn’t it? Things sure happened. I went to two basketball games on Saturday, there was Valentine’s day, I watched Seinfeld, and… that’s most of the non-game things. Here are the game things:
NBA 2K15 (XBONE): Tenth Appearance, Last Appearance 1/26/15
There was an update last year where I basically started out saying “I think I get it” and then proceeded to confirm that I actually didn’t get how to play it for about 3 weeks. I can say unequivocally that I actually do get NBA 2K15 because I’m averaging like 32 per game and blowing good teams like the Spurs out. Rudy Gay’s playing well. DeMarcus Cousins is playing well. Thomas Robinson is really good. Nik Stauskas? Still starting for some reason despite the fact that he misses every open three even though THAT’S YOUR JOB, NIK, THAT’S YOUR JOB, THAT’S WHY THEY DRAFTED YOU #FREEMCLEMORE
Madden 2002 (GC): Second Appearance, Second Straight Appearance
I’ve said so much about this game in the dailies for the past two weeks and the Update that I can’t really say much more. So I won’t. Instead, I’ll have you watch the game’s intro, which was the last video game intro cinematic that mattered.
Sam & Max Hit the Road (PC): Second Appearance, Second Straight Appearance
I’m stuck again. I get stuck all the time. I just gotta find what the binoculars do. Again, hard to write about a game like this until I finish it, because I don’t want to spoil anything and there’s basically nothing else to talk about.
Halo: Combat Evolved (XBONE): Fourth Appearance, Last Appearance 1/19/15
SHIT, SON, I GOT TO THE FLOOD PART! I GOT TO THE PART WITH THE FLOOD AND THOSE ARE THE MOST UNSETTLING ENEMIES I HAVE SEEN IN YEARS. I get really freaked out by unsettling, polygonal enemies, like the headcrabs in the original Half-Life? Turned that off and never went back to it. I saw a flood with a human head today in full HD and I am actually probably never going back because I actually started hyperventilating.
I should work on this. Doesn’t help that the flood make the game worse and I don’t want to continue. Halo 2 is a better game and I’m gonna play that one now.
