The Elder Blog: General Update

When I started this series, I fully intended to use it to essentially document my gaming adventures. But I quickly forgot all about it. I’ve been wanting to write more than Casabloga movie reviews in this blog, and it just occurred to me that I could revive this series and use it for it’s intended purpose.

PSN Profile

For starters, I’ve recently earned my first Platinum trophy on PSN. It was for Horizon Zero Dawn. When I started playing that game I immediately fell in love with it. It’s such a perfect game! It has it’s flaws, to be sure, but it’s about as perfect as you can get. I loved the controls, the world, the story, and the characters. All of the elements of the game were great. Not only that, but unlike most open world games, such as Skyrim, the side quests weren’t pointless. In Skyrim and Fallout and other games, you’ll complete countless side quests that really add nothing to the main story (thus SIDE quest). But in Horizon, every side quest, while optional, effect the main story and the world in general. Everyone you help can come and help you during the final battle at the end, and each character has their own part to play. There are no filler characters.

I’ve also just finished inFamous: Second Son. Twice. I did the good path to 100%, then the evil path to 100%. Both were satisfying, though maybe a little less so than the first two entries in the series. But still a great game nonetheless.

InFamous Second Son

That’s just recently. Since June I’ve also played No Man’s Sky, Type:Rider, Driveclub, Prey, Battlefield 1, Final Fantasy XV, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, The Unfinished Swan, Knack, Broforce, Gone Home, Until Dawn, Fallout 4, Just Cause 3, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Titanfall 2, Rainbow Six: Siege, Destiny 2, and as of today Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Most of the above listed games I really would have liked to have written about, had I remembered this series at the time. Maybe someday I’ll do separate posts on them.

While I’ve been talking about PlayStation 4, I actually prefer Xbox. I have an Xbox One, but it’s in storage (long story) and have been using my roommate’s PS4. However, I still get to use my Xbox account because I’ve been playing a few games on Windows 10. Pretty much just Fallout Shelter and Minecraft.

Anyway, now that I remember this series, I fully intend to use it to post about my gaming adventures from now on. If anyone wants to add me, my PSN username is Baikeru24, and my Xbox gamertag is Baikeru.
