Happy Saint Valentine's Day everyone! With the overtime slowing down in the winter, I've been able to enjoy a good amount of gaming time for the past month or two. I had been wanting to play Arkham Knight ever since I started it as part of the Bean Dive last year, but I wanted to finish Arkham City first. Once I finally finished AC, I was able to start AK and really, really enjoyed it. I've completed the story and some of the seemingly-endless DLC for the game and now I'm just mopping up achievements for it. I also went back and continued another Bean Dive game, DiRT 3, and was able to find a great gaming session to help with the multiplayer achievements there. Great racing game, but a little repetitive. I also jumped on the Firewatch bandwagon and had a great time playing that. Even though it's a "walking simulator", the story was still engaging.
I have been trying to focus on my backlog recently. I started playing Titanfall (another Bean Dive game), and while I've enjoyed it so far, the lack of a real story has made it difficult for me to get into it. I can foresee a long grind ahead of me...
Speaking of backlog, I was thinking the other day about how many completions I could potentially lose when the Xbox 360 inevitably shuts down. I still have a lot of games on my Card that aren't backwards compatible that I still haven't completed. I'm going to try and make an effort at least once a week to play one of the those games in order to get it perfected and cleared. My first target: Mercenaries 2
. I only have two achievements left, but they are the most difficult and require another playthrough. While I did enjoy the game, it was buggy and there is a potential for a lot to go wrong with these last two achievements. We'll see how it goes!Cop
Part of the problem with not updating the blog enough is that crazy things will happen at work, but then I'll move on and forget about them by the time I write again. The last week has been busy because we have got a lot of snow (18"+), so we've had a lot of car crashes. I've gone back to my roots and worked some midnight shifts here and there. While I'm not a big fan of winter, there is something nice about a silent night with fresh, untouched snow on the ground. It's also a nice advantage to be able to follow footprints and tell if cars have moved recently or been parked all night!
Other than that, and excluding things I can't discuss, it's been pretty much the same. Drunk drivers, domestics, and wanted people. Even though it will be busy and a pain in the butt, I'm already looking forward to the warmer weather!
