It’s that time again! I feel like this has again been a pretty lazy gaming month, but when I think about it I actually finished a game this month so that’s actually pretty good! My summer vacation started a couple of weeks ago so I should have more time and energy to do fun things and hopefully be a bit more active blogger again.
Anyway, video games!
The one game I actually finished this month was Telltale’s Jurassic Park: The Game, which I already wrote a review of so go read that if you want to see my more in depth thoughts of it. It was an occasionally frustrating but fun game and I finished it way faster than expected because it had less episodes than I expected. Dinosaurs are great okay.
I have made barely any progress in Pillars of Eternity since last month’s post because I just haven’t been in the mood for it, but I’ve been trying a bunch of new things! A game called Dauntless went into open beta not too long ago so Aks and I gave it a try and it turned out to be pretty fun. It was sort of like Monster Hunter (how much alike, I don’t know because I’ve only played like 15 minutes of Monster Hunter: World back when it was in beta on PS4) and I really liked the way the game looked. In all its simplicity you go on missions to hunt monsters.
The character creation was pretty fun by the way, you had to choose ancestors for your character first to get a base face before you got to really edit them!
Another game I’ve been trying out was a bit of an impulse buy. I had no plans of getting it anytime soon because it was expensive and I was waiting for it to be less than 20€… Well, one day I saw someone selling their used PS4 copy on Facebook for 20€ so I went and bought it!
Yep, Assassin’s Creed Origins. I haven’t played any Assassin’s Creed games since Black Flag because I kinda lost interest in them and from what I’ve heard they had a lot of problems, but the fact that Origins takes place in ancient Egypt had me curious. I haven’t played a lot yet, haven’t even left Siwa, but I’m liking it so far. I really like how they’ve done eagle vision in it, having an actual eagle friend is the best! It doesn’t feel so much like they took the same game and just put it in a different setting.
Assassin’s Creed Origins seems such an open game that it’s most likely going to be one of those games I’ll take months to finish. The fact that it has a really fun photo mode doesn’t help…
Here’s a couple of pretty screenshots I’ve taken:
