Hey friends! Can you believe it’s time for another What I’ve Been Playing Wednesday?! Me either.
As many of you know, the Steam Summer sale is underway and I picked up quite a few games, so naturally I have played a few of them. 😛
PC: Mainlining – This a PC hacking game. The entire game is played on a desktop of a computer. So you’re playing on a computer on your computer. So it’s like computer inception. The premise of the game is that you are working for an agency called MI7. Apparently it’s an agency that has some sort of authority because you are solving cases, which build upon each other, and arresting the perpetrator. The way in which you solve these cases is by hacking in to things and gather information as well as evidence. I personally am on case four or five of thirteen. So far I really enjoy the game a lot but I do find myself questioning that integrity of the work MI7 is doing. MI7 is putting away “bad guy” hackers by hacking… Seems just as bad and extremely hypocritical. I’m super interested in seeing how the rest of the story plays out.
PC: Golf It! – As many of you know, Mathew and I play a lot of Golf with Your Friends when we’re a part. Naturally playing the same courses over and over can get boring so we found Golf It! and picked it up. The game is very similar but very different from Golf with Your Friends. The hitting mechanic is one of the biggest differences beyond courses. Instead of having a power bar you have a putter that you pull back and then manually thrust forward in order to hit your ball which makes it difficult to judge power in your “swing.” It’s not terrible but definitely is an adjustment. The courses are similar in theme but different in actual layout, thank goodness! I also am a bit fan of the ball customization in Golf It! You are able to change color, add a hat, and change the trail of your ball. It makes it a lot more exciting. I’m a fan of the ability to make your own courses. Mathew and I downloaded a couple fan made courses last night and had an absolute blast with it. It’s still in early access but is definitely worth the buy. I highly recommend giving it a shot. Pun may or may not be intended 😉
PC: PRICE – Guys. We all know I love my point and click games. AND THIS WAS FREE! So it’s like a horror-ish point and click. It’s creepy for sure. AND HARD! So your character wakes up in his sister’s room where he’s locked in and weird, creepy things are happening. Now this is all I can tell you as I have not made it out of the room… Maybe one day I will but so far I’m not very good. 😛
PC: Sims 4 – I have played far too much of this. Or not enough, depending on how you look at it. I have created a lot of drama for my current Sim household and watched them grow up, old and on. I forgot just how incredibly addicting this game is. I find myself trying to achieve the “perfect” Sim. One who has max skills in everything. Who achieves all lifetime aspirations and raises great kids. I feel like I’m getting closer and closer to achieving this goal with the current family I am playing so we will all see if it’s possible for me!
PS4: Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 – 358/2 Days – This is just pure cinematics so make sure to have two-ish hours set aside. I was okay with it just being cinematics because I remember playing the game on the DS and putting it down. I found the original game quite frustrating because all you did was missions and most of those resulted in being in Agrabah. Which happens to be the world I hate the most. So naturally the level of fun I found in the game decreased dramatically.
I can’t wait to see what world I find myself jumping in to within the next two weeks. Probably more Sims 4 and Mainlining but hopefully more console gaming. We’ll see!!
Stay classy and sassy, friends! ❤
