That is the first line that went through my head all last night. My day was absolutely draining, and I finally had enough time to actually relax. For an early Christmas gift I received the Guided Fate Paradox
. I really wanted this gem, and after reading reviews, I wanted it THAT much more. So, being the "spoiled" brat that I am (no, I'm not really THAT spoiled... in that sense anyway), I was gifted it. Of course I didn't wait till Christmas, but instead popped it into my PS3 yesterday.
I wish I could place my finger on it, but it's just displeasing to my eyes.
Another major gripe I have is the focus in story. WRPGs tend to be more world focused than story focused, and because of that, I can't really connect with the characters. I like a good, deep narrative, with a stronger focus on the character rather than the world.
So, over the next few days, I am going to play a WRPG, despite my turnoffs about the subgenre.
I was provided with a copy of Fallout: New Vegas (highly appreciative, thank you), and for two hours everyday I will be playing and analyzing the game, documenting my findings in the oncoming blogs.
A couple of rules:
- I must, at all times, keep an open mind. I cannot allow my previous notions to interfere.
- I must analyze all that I can. Aesthetics, story, world, audio, etc.
- I must play for a minimum of two hours a day for the next seven days, with the exception of Christmas.
I think I can last that long! Who knows, maybe I will fall in love with it!
