Each time I fire up my PlayStation 4, nearly all of my logged on friends are playing Fallout 4. One is playing Tales of Xilia 2, because she has other issues, but most are lost in the Wasteland. I have different issues; I’m playing the hell out of Assassins’ Creed Syndicate.
Some of it is for strategy guide review purposes, and some of it is just for me. I really wanted to clear out all of the regions with my gang, and I was going to take the time to do that regardless. I still plan to do that with Mad Max eventually. I also wanted to get all of the collectibles, scratch that, most of the collectibles, and the strategy guide is helping me do just that. While you can buy treasure maps to highlight most of the collectibles, such as the pressed flowers, locked chests, and beer bottles, you have to use real money (or earn a crap ton of Helix points) to buy the maps marking the Secrets of London and Queen Victoria’s letters. Why use real money when I have a strategy guide? This is exactly how I looked into the reliability and usefulness of all of the book’s maps.
I have one more area I need to fully explore, and then I’m ready to review this one and move on to Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
I’ve been playing a lot of TriForce Heroes as well. When I say “a lot of,” I mean that pick it up a few times during the day to see if maybe this time is the one time I’ll get the Serpent Fangs to craft the Cozy Parka. I kept a tally of how many times I played level 2 of the Ice Caverns–Snowfall Ravine–and it was the 10th time that finally yielded the coveted Serpent Fangs. Now I’m ready to continue, and Garitt Rocha better be damn right about this Cozy Parka. I could probably play the Snowfall Ravine in my sleep at this point. The eldest watched me during one of my sessions and he commented how I was really good at the game (he happened to watch the one time I never once got injured). I replied that it’s amazing how good you are at something when you practice so much. Perhaps he will take that to heart for his own endeavors.
*Cue “the more you know” jingle*
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving (if you live in the US) this week. If you don’t, I hope you have a fantastic week! No vidcast this week, but I think Chris will be posting some of his videos from his Extra Life streams and I will be hard at work reviewing guides. Chris has said he doesn’t want to carry over any guides into 2016, and I’d love to do the same!
