I’ve done two pieces of collaborative writing with Peter from Peter Reviews!
So! There’s a new Silent Hill coming out…Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Peter Reviews will be writing something about it soon (I think). But essentially the game is a multiplayer top down shooter…zombie survival horror game esque…game, skinned with Silent Hill. It looks awful and sounds awful. Peter’s suggestion after this was other strange genres of video games with the Silent Hill name tacked on, like Silent Hill Slumber Party. Queue bad faux box art!
So, despite the fact that I write about cooking, tea, politics and social theory stuff, cats and cute things – I do actually play (basically all the time) video games! And I wanted to do my own game (or games) of the year. I’ve decided to do this at what most people consider the actual end of the year, rather than say…The Golden Joystick awards which is at some time during the year…other than Christmas.
It’s been quite a while actually since I’ve written a full review of a video game, the last one being ‘Blue Toad Murder Files’ in October. So here I’m going to review the newest game by developer, Naughty Dog – Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
Just to introduce it, I’m going to mention that I’ve finished Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – and I did enjoy them. They were fun, adventure style story games. They aren’t really the sort of thing you play more than the once, but definitely worth playing. They’ve also been pretty critically and commercially successful, but then I don’t really care about that in a lot of ways…we care if the game is good, right?
One of the things I really enjoy that I don’t talk about a lot is baking and cooking. I like doing it a lot, and I’m not that good at it! But still, it’s fun – and the things I make are usually okay…or at least edible.
Just in case you thought I’d forgoten, I’m going to talk about NaNoWriMo. I didn’t finish National Novel Writing Month in the end. This may have had something to do with getting Skyrim a day or two before it’s release and playing it a lot…
