Weeklog for Week 21: May 23 to May 29

Progress

Lots of work, keeping me busy.

I really have to improve my business processes, though. Some of that stuff takes me way too long to do.

Games

  • Assassins'c Creed: Origins: stupid game, but it's still so beautiful. I'm really only playing this because of a five year old tweetIt is impossible to find anything on twitter. Took me ages to find that tweet again. that turned out absolutely correct: the game has some interesting ideas, but most of it is just... not that good. All the characters are uninteresting and I'm not invested in any of them. The combat is weird and clunky (compared to my recent experiences with combat), but when it comes together it's nice and chunky, which makes its failures even more annoying. The people-following works only sometimes, the missions are super-uninteresting, and the people of Alexandria say about three different things, so they say them alot! And that Abstergo bit? I don't care about that at all, it's entirely unmotivated and uninteresting.
    In summary: beautiful landscapes, not much more. I'm going to play something better now. 6/10
  • The Witcher 3: ah, much better; it's a tradeoff between an automated horse (very good) and a very versatile roof-climbing horse (also very good). I played this some years ago and stopped when I came to Skellige, where some, ah, uncomfortable decisions had to be made. I guess I'll have to go back a bit and redo some parts... (9/10)
  • art of rally: a cute little racing game with a fun little idea, but the vehicle physics really don't agree with me, and it's probably better with an analog controller. I'll have to try that. 7/10
  • Hot Wheels Unleashed: now this is a racing game. Controls are tight, speeds are high, environments are awesome, it has a track builder. Very, very nice. 8.5/10
