First to explain my title so no one thinks it's super homo. Pretty much I've been using Titles involving games I've been playing and TRYING to mostly just involve games I completed during the week, but that's not always possible. Last weeks title was clearly from Wizard of Oz, this week I went with rap lyrics, only changed around the words again, clearly. This weeks the title is from Mannie Fresh's Real Big, which is a rap song. I clarify these things for people like Griizzy who is a little bit slower and would probably call me a slang term for someone who likes "meat" so to speak.
That out of the way this weeks stats were about as average as usual netting 30 achievements in 4 games (Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, Pimp My Ride, Wallace and Gromit #1, and Super Meat Boy) for 925 gamerscore which translated into 2,088 TA score.
Favorite Achievement of the Week:
Crack Shot achievement in Wallace & Gromit 1: Fright of the Bees for not missing a shot in the shooting gallery scenario
Most Rewarding Achievement of the Week:
I'm A Golden God! achievement in Super Meat Boy for 100%ing the game. Definitely happy to complete this title.
I said last week I was going to get The Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD remake but I thought about the pile of games I already have and realized that I only wanted it for the nostalgia factor so I downloaded the demo and got my 1:30 second fix in and moved on. Games I DID pick up last week from the Steam sales were:
-GTA IV (GFWL)
-Arma II + DLC
-Gotham City Impostors (GFWL)
I don't plan on doing GTA achievements on the PC but I do plan on messing around with the MP with friends, however with GCI I wouldn't mind playing that again if the numbers are there on PC.
I ended up completing 3 games last week with Super Meat Boy, Wallace and Gromit 1: Fright of the Bees, and Pimp My Ride so as I've done in the past here are my short reviews of what I liked or didn't like from the games.
Super Meat Boy -
This game is one of the most frustrating games I think I have played to date on the Xbox 360. It plays perfectly but the problem is the difficulty and I am surprised at fact that so many people had it completed without breaking something first. I loved the game-play it was really smooth, and the ability to unlock other characters in turn helped on some of the levels later in the game. I would say this game is worth it for at least a play through as a lot of the cut scenes did make me laugh.
Wallace and Gromit 1: Fright of the Bees-
I honestly didn't know what to expect from these games, I just read that they were easy so I picked them up. I have no real complaints about this game the puzzles were challenging without a walk through and I got stuck in a few spots, real brain teasers. Walking was a little clunky at times as well as some of the animations but all in all I wasn't upset at all. After the play through I would say this game isn't really for anyone but kids or someone who really loves the W+G series.
Pimp My Ride-
This game is in the Top 3 for THE WORST games I have played on the Xbox to date. I played it back when I had Gamefly about 3-4 years ago and couldn't get anywhere in the game because it was so unplayable. I then rented the game again a couple years later... same outcome. This past month I bought it for $3.33 during a gohastings.com sale and even then I felt like I was being penetrated with that price, even so, I had to face my demons one more time. With my ability to play shitty games at an all time high I tackled this beast once and for all, and even with the completion I don't feel as if I won. Nothing I can say about this game can do it any justice and I say that from the bottom of my heart. The only enjoyment I got out of this game was peoples reactions during my live stream to playing it. The graphics belong on the N64, The sound is that of generic hip hop beats with the occasional Xzibit song, the game-play driving was reminiscent to Crazy Taxi, and the cut scenes as well as the Bios for the characters were VERY stereotypical and borderline racist IMO. I really can't say I would rate this game higher than a 2/10.. Good Bye Pimp My Ride, I will be sending you to some other unfortunate soul.
This weeks goals are as follows :
-Complete Wallace and Gromit #2
-Complete Sing It : High School Musical 3 (Already Done)
-Continue Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY on PC
-70 Extra Credit Stars in 5th Grader
-Kill another survivor in the DayZ mod on PC
I have spent so much time on this game (DayZ) and it is INCREDIBLY addicting, however, I have been killed a lot for no reason when running into other survivors - I WANT VENGEANCE.
As always, thanks for reading... Shit in Xzibit's mailbox for me if you can.
