I've been trying to clear through my backlog and work on getting my completion percentage up (still trying to recover from the Bean Dive). Unfortunately, some awesome Game with Gold games have come up and put a stop to that. Microsoft has really stepped its game up recently. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was a great offering. I had fun with it, and it wasn't too tough of a completion. Murdered: Soul Suspect was another favorite of mine. There isn't much action to the game, and you definitely need to follow the walkthrough in order to complete it, but I had a great time with it. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I used to live in Salem, Massachusetts as a kid. Now I've started Sleeping Dogs: DE which was another free offering. I really enjoyed completing the 360 version, and I'm enjoying replaying it for free now.
I started the Batman TTS because I heard it was a good story and I have enjoyed almost all of the previous TTS games. I need to spend a little more time completing that. We also had a small Thanksgiving get-together and I downloaded the 2 Jackbox Party Packs, so now both of those are on my Gamercard, not sure when I'll get time to finish those. On the night I finished Blood Dragon, I drank a little too much wine and bought Far Cry Primal while it was on sale, so I'll add that to my backlog. I also picked up Firewatch...I had been waiting for it to go on sale.
So as the weather turns crappy (first real snowfall today), my backlog is primed for cozy days inside playing games!Cop
As if the winter wasn't depressing enough, work is starting to follow suit. One of our officers was shot at by a wanted guy at a crappy hotel. The guy was hiding behind a shower curtain and shot at the officer as soon as it opened. The round missed the officers head by a couple of inches and was close enough to leave residue on his face. Officers backed out while the guy kept shooting. Luckily no one was hurt except for the bad guy, who immediately shot himself after officers backed out.
The traditional winter calls continue. Like I've mentioned before, the hotels which house tourists in the summer soon cut their rates and rent rooms to fugitives, junkies, and wife beaters from every corner of the country. Our domestics and overdoses go through the roofs, seems like every driver that gets pulled over doesn't have a license, and seems like everyone you run into at night is wanted out of somewhere. And I'm just sitting here wishing I was back on the midnight shift!
