Spent a few hours today on Fallout 4.
I decided to start a new playthrough on Survival without any mods. I have played a few hours on Normal difficulty previously, and I did not feel challenged then. But I certainly do feel challenged now. The risks are much higher, and finding a bed to sleep on is a moment of sheer ecstasy.
These days, I prefer to play SP challenges than to go for achievements. I tried playing through TellTales Game of Thrones a couple of days ago, but it just felt like work, especially considering that I am not a fan of the books or the HBO series. The story is too depressing for me to have any fun with it, it seems.
I like to game to be challenged and to overcome those challenges. Even if there are no achievements attached to Survival difficulty, I think I will keep going at it. I will never be a skilled gamer if all I play is easy difficulty levels, after all. Higher risk of character fatality really gets my blood pumping, and when I clear a room of enemies, it feels like an accomplishment when every one of those enemies has a strong chance of ending my character’s life. This is the very definition of heart pounding entertainment to me. And I am hooked on it.
I still have not forgotten about Boss Rush on Ys Origin, however. I will spend some time practicing the last three bosses over this week, and once I am confident that I have them down, I will go for this again.
My vacation starts when I leave work on Friday. My man flies in on September 11th. Apparently, he got a great price on his plane ticket for that day.
. Then it will be ten days of chillin’ and hitting many museums and gardens. I also plan on introducing him to a lovely movie that reaffirms my faith in mankind - Cannibal Holocaust.
Thanks for reading.
