After watching my eldest play more Skylanders SWAP Force, I asked him if I could start my own game when he finished Sunday afternoon. That was a huge, HUGE mistake, as I now want Skylanders of my own. I don’t mean I want to collect my own toys, although yeah, I want my own of those too, as I like the dragons and he’s all about the silly-looking monsters. I’m actually considering picking up my own copy of the game for PlayStation 4, even though we can easily share one copy on the Wii U.
By having my own copy upstairs, I could, uh, get trophies (most important) and play whenever I want, not just when the big TV downstairs is free. Plus, we could share our Skylanders between one another, as I know we won’t have many of the same characters.
Okay, okay I admit I just want my own copy that isn’t on the Wii U because I’m selfish and I want those ridiculous trophies. And whenever he starts to play, I want to play as well. If I had my own copy, I could just go play. Or I could be the responsible and nice parent and sit with him and help him out whenever he needs it, as he does need it often.
It’s not as though I don’t have a ton of other things to play on all of my consoles already, last generation and new, so I probably shouldn’t look into a new game with toys just yet. Yet.
Right now I’m waiting on the delivery people to bring me two things so I can hammer out reviews before I run off to LA for E3: strategy guide for Watch_Dogs and a copy of Murdered: Soul Suspect. I’m still sadly dreading WD, even though I hear it is great. I’m beginning to think that open world games are just not for me after my dismal experience with Skyrim.
Must remember to keep an open mind. Don’t want to be another uneducated hater on the Internet.
