I know it completely befuddles numerous friends of mine that I’ve had a copy of Destiny, the hottest game going on right now, since before the game hit store shelves and I haven’t played it once. I told thedailycrate.com that I would review it, but a few things have gotten in the way of pursuing the game further:
- I’m a big procrastinator.
- Diablo 3
- I’m also reviewing Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright.
I am not far from platinuming in D3, so I try to take some time to play that every day because how else will I amass that gold in time? It also didn’t help that my eldest child said he wanted to play Diablo 3 with me, so we created a Monk for him (or as he calls it, a ninja) and I gladly ran around Sanctuary with him. He needed a lot of coaching, and he doesn’t completely understand the cooldown system yet, but he seems to have fun. The couch co-op is definitely a different experience in the game, and I wasn’t prepared for how LEGO-esque it was with the camera and pulling characters in directions. Of course, since he’s 6, he has the attention span of a gnat, so after 45 minutes, he was ready to go play with something else, whereas I was ready to keep going while the baby napped. Ah well. I had a dessert I had to make for a little dinner party anyway.
Last night, I decided it would be a great time to work on my review for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright while watching the Sunday night football game. Next thing I knew, I looked up at the clock and noticed it was 1:30 a.m. How did that happen?
I haven’t enjoyed the last two Professor Layton games, and this one feels like a call back to the first games, but with a bit of Phoenix Wright gameplay thrown in. I’ve never played a Phoenix Wright game before, so this has been an entirely new experience for me, and one I’m not as adept at it as I am Professor Layton. I’ve used far more hint coins for help in the courtroom than solving puzzles.
And that’s all I want to play today. I mean, that is what I’m reviewing for work, so surely I could take off the rest of the day for more puzzle solving adventures? I can already hear my boss’s laughter.
