As far as gaming goes Christmas is an opportunity to relax and catch up on all the gaming I've been meaning to do but just haven't had the time. It also means the annual STEAM sale and I bought a couple of excellent single player games for my PC that have been on my watch list for quite some time.
South Park: Stick of Truth and Wolfenstein: New Order have stubbornly refused to drop in price, despite being 6 or so months old. I refused to pay the extortionate release prices for these two games and held out until STEAM finally offered them at a discount. Quite a big thing for me as I usually cave and pay the full price for games I want after a month or so!
Anyway, of course these are single player PC games and I have sort-of gotten out of playing SP games as a rule. I think the last single player only game I played was Fallout 3! But Christmas is the ideal time to pass a few hours solo gaming as on-line friends tend to be a bit scarce due to family commitments.
South Park: Stick of Truth is as stupid and adolescent as you imagine it would be, but as a big South Park fan I am completely happy with the never ending fart jokes! It is very faithful to the series and as a lot of reviewers have commented it is just like being in an episode of the cartoon - all your favourite characters are there.
|Here's my South Park character - 'Douchbag' the Level 2 Thief. About to set off|
on my adventure aided by Butters...Not exactly an RPG dream team!
|The main character in Wolfenstein - Blazkowicz - has changed quite a bit|
over the years! His 1992 cartoon pixel self has developed into the 2014
realistic rendering. None the less the game-play is still firmly comic.
|The WoT Sherman Firefly. The game models have slowly improved since the|
game was first released, this model is quite superb and check out my 17 Pounder!
|The Achilles, somewhat at odds with the Christmas background in it's British|
desert camo! I am still deciding whether I like this Tier VI tank destroyer as
it has yet to displace the M36 Jackson as my favourite level VI mount.
