State Of The Monk 5/22/17 (closing in on 150 k GS)
Listening to: The Grinding Wheel - Overkill

Now Playing: Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Flinthook, Fallout: New Vegas, Alice: Madness Returns, Gems of War, NeuroVoider, Darksiders

It's only been a couple of days since my last post, but on a personal note, I have switched to a new medication regimen. Fentanyl patches. Fentanyl is extraordinarily powerful medication but since I have been on painkillers for years, it is a good match for me. So far, the patch has been amazing, providing around the clock pain relief. So far I have barely needed extra Percocet along with it. So, I am optimistic for the future.

In gaming, the big sale on backwards compatible titles was great, I bought about 5 titles, in particular ones I had a moderate interest in but didn't want to spend more than 20 bucks on. Alice: Madness Returns, Blue Dragon , and Blood Knights being the ones I purchased under this pretense. I also purchased Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which is a great game that I bought and beat when it first was released on PC. It was rather cheap so why not go through it again and get some gamerscore along with it? Along with BC2, I bought COD 3. COD 2 is still one of my all time favorite FPSs, World at War also being amazing. I oddly never bought or played COD 3, partly because I constantly heard rather widely ranging opinions on its quality. At 5 dollars, I think it's worth a play now. A concern for both of the games is that they both have a significant number of achievements relying on MP gaming. As I have gotten older, I have shied away from playing MP but more concerning is that they are older games that will have a minimal player base to help get as far as I need to. Oh well, we'll see if I can cobble together any teams to get a couple of MP achievements.

Also, I breached the 140 k gamerscore mark recently, closing in on 150 k. My progress these last few months have been wonderful (for me, of course).

I finally beat Flinthook the other day. By "beat" I mean I beat the final boss but I still have quite a bit to do such as get the speed run achievements, score achievements, buy out the black market, get all the lore and relics, and also get the "happy" ending which I still need to suss out what exactly is required. There are some small issues with the game but overall I think it is an excellent example of a throwback indie game with lots of heart and sharp controls. One of my favorite smaller games released in the last couple of years.

As I reported before, I am crunching through Darksiders. Mos amusingly, I was not paying attention to TA playlist so I had no idea that it was the game of the month. How fortuitous. I just beat the Griever so I am at about the half way point. The game still feels nice to play which is to the developer's credit. Some of the other games I have been playing such as Alice: Madness Returns and even Bad Company 2 feel a little mechanically goofy, with slightly off movement/battle movements. Not a big deal, but you can feel the age of the games. Darksiders still shows its age, but in grew into its age well.

I wanted to toss out another post due to the sale and now that that is done, I bid you farewell. Until next time...
