Howdy y’all! So, Mr. Squid is feeling a bit under the weather tonight, so your resident DOMO-KUN loving, compulsive collecting, just generally funktastic recapper is stepping in tonight.
So, with everyone super busy, has anyone actually got to play games a lot lately? I know I haven’t been able to put in nearly as much time as I’ve liked, but here are some of my thoughts on what I’ve managed to squeeze in.
Modern Warfare 2 is hella sweet! I’ve managed to play through the single player and found the story to be really compelling, believable, and well written. It was pretty intense at the end too, as I literally thought the game “ended” like 5 times before I actually got to the end. Spec Ops was a nice addition as well, and I’ve managed to get 3 stars on all of them except for Snatch & Grab, which is one of the most bullshit things I’ve played. If anyone has actually beat that mission on Veteran, PLEASE tell me how to do it! As for multiplayer, the 34873487 things you can unlock are both really cool and lame, as it’s cool that there’s so much stuff, but for people like myself who try to unlock/max everything, it’s a pain in the ass.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is quite the interesting game. If you’re a fan of Kingdom Hearts and actually followed the story in the other games, you’ll definitely like this one a lot more than the average person. While the gameplay is like the others in the series, the one thing I actually really like is the “panel” system of “leveling/upgrading” your character.
Also, with Christmas coming up, anyone who lives in the States and has access to great stores like Target or such, send me a private message or something, since you guys get these badass DOMO-KUNs! ^_^ Onto the recaps!
