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…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 2

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 3 hours 15 mins 7/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Path of Gravestones Aerial Dance Entombed Giant Waves of Thunder   Almost 2 more hours under my belt and 4 more Colossi have fallen to my sword. The tactics for the Colossi don’t really vary and the real puzzle seems…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 1

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 1 hour 25 mins 3 Achievements – Valley Wanderer The Sloth Disturbed Sleep   Despite both my SNES Mini Classics arriving today I put off unboxing one to play Shadow of the Colossus instead. When you first boot it up you can see that it’s a beautiful game and…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 3

We’ve covered Rule 3 now it’s time to look at Rule 2 (Wait) and give some information on how I grab myself a bargain.   Due to my massive backlog of games and the fact that I choose not play Online (that’s another post for discussion entirely) I’ve got no problem with waiting months or…

Super Mario Bros (NES) – Playlog 7

Difficulty – NA Current Playtime – 8 hours 20 mins Finished (SINGLE PLAYTHROUGH @ 14 mins)   With the poor performance yesterday I pulled it back for the win this evening finishing off Super Mario Bros in a single playthrough with 14 minutes on the clock. This wasn’t my first attempt of the night with…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 2

So in my last post I covered a few rules to stick to whilst getting yourself some bargains for your game collection; now we’re going to go into some of these in more depth. I’m going to start with Rule 3 (Set Limits) as this is the one that I’d say is probably the most…
