The Great Cleanup of 2016: Vol 8
I didn't have a ton of time for Xbox this last week. I did manage to finish the Gears of War Ultimate Edition campaign. I have run the gamut of emotions on this game. I started a casual campaign with my brother while waiting for family, and we got through half the game together. It was a blast, we played split screen, died to krill in the dark area, and generally enjoyed the game. When I went back to finish the campaign I was playing alone, and the game is less fun when playing alone. There are sequences where the AI teammate will die and cause you to revert to checkpoint, and there are sequences that are just designed for two people.
I also loaded up the multiplayer again, got to level 10. Looking at my multiplayer stats, I had not won a single game until this week. I'm not sure what was going on, but I'm not motivated to play anymore multiplayer and will wait till Gears of War 4 rolls around. Until then Overwatch is just shinier and more exciting.
As a strange twist of fate I ended up installing Dark Souls and am now running through that game with a buddy of mine. Originally I really hated Dark Souls, I played until I ran into my first lotheric night and I couldn't beat him. The guy who lent me the game told me, "You just need to know how to beat the enemies, leveling up doesn't do much." So I figured I was just super bad at the game and I quit. After finishing Dark Souls 3 I realized he was wrong. Levels are actually important, and can make a huge difference. So far my trek through the game is going fine, and crazily enough the worst boss so far has been a giant butterfly. The game has an okay measure of activity right now, I see a fair number of Phantoms and have even been invaded once. For now I will focus on Dark Souls, I want to get it cleaned up before the population dies down too far. Game List Games Left:
