The Surge (PS4) – Playlog 3

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 11.5 hrs 1 Achievement – Firebug Tonights playthrough started with promise – first attempt at the boss saw me take him down to half health.  Subsequent attempts resulted in multiple deaths from the various attacks LU-74 has at his disposal with different levels of progress.  Firebug is definitely a…

The Surge (PS4) – Playlog 2

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 8 hrs 1 Achievement – Infidel  I may have spoken too soon in my earlier playlog – the second zone is pretty brutal and difficult to navigate.  Spent alot of time wandering and trying to find some shortcuts back to Ops Centre whilst dying in a number of horrific…

The Surge (PS4) – Playlog 1

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 3 hrs 8 Achievements – P.A.X I’ll Be Back On My Own Two Feet Sorry, I Dropped This Hey Listen First Day On The Job Butcher’s Bill It’s Blue Light   I couldn’t resist the lure of a Souls-like game… Not proving to be particularly difficult so far (I…

Ico (PS3) – Playlog 3

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 7 hrs Finished 6 Achievements – Armed and Ready East Gate West Gate Farewell Royal Arms Bench Warmer   I got a quick hour in on Friday night – again not particularly difficult with the exception of one room which I needed to Google and it turns out Ico…

Ico (PS3) – Playlog 2

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 2 hrs 1 Achievement – Failure   Nothing particularly challenging so far with the exception of one puzzle room where I eventually relented after 30 mins and Googled for a walkthrough (only read up to what I was supposed to do in that room).  Turned out I’d already tried…

Ico (PS3) – Playlog 1

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 30 mins 1 Achievement – Rescue   My copy of The Surge for PS4 arrived today so it was a tough run thing to not put the PS3 away in favour of the PS4.  I decided that I’d go arse backwards with the Team Ico games and play Ico…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 6

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 10 hours 10 mins 16/16 Colossi Finished 3 Achievements – Final Colossus Resistance The Forbidden   As expected the final Colossus went down this evening without too much difficulty – first attempt totaling approximately 20 minutes. Have to say I called about 50% of the ending well in advance…

SNES Classic Mini

I managed to pick up another one of these today for a friend from work and, considering how difficult they are to find online I thought I’d post how I managed to get this one for retail – or at least £10 above the RRP. Being out of stock online (you can get stock notifications…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 5

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 9 hours 50 mins 15/16 Colossi 2 Achievements – Shielded Colossus Valley of the Fallen   This post is a bit delayed as I had a late night last night trying to take down the final Colossus but I’ll cover that later. Colossus 14 was pretty much a rehash…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 4

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 6 hours 50 mins 13/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Agro Circus Guardian Unleashed Silent Thunder Signs in the Sky   Finished off the final tricks for Agro whilst moving between Colossi – this is a pretty simple trophy although getting the timing for the 180 is a bit tricky….

Purchases this week

I hadn’t been planning on picking anything up this week but I saw The Surge on Base.com for less than £14 so I had to pick it up. I’m a big fan of the Dark Souls games (having played and completed Demon Souls, Dark Souls 1 to 3 and Bloodborne) so anything generally described as…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 3

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 5 hours 10/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Slippery Ride Wall Scaler Slumbering Caveman Unknown Tracks   A couple more nights like this and I’ll have cleared off Shadow of the Colossus which is a little disappointing as I was expecting more considering it’s cult status. I managed to pick…
