Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

I’ve been meaning to play Enslaved: Odyssey to the West for quite a while now, it’s been about two years since its fall 2010 release. I really enjoyed Ninja Theory‘s previous game, Heavenly Sword (though admittedly for its art and style more than its game play) but I just haven’t gotten around to playing Enslaved until now.

Part of that was simply a cost thing. At thirty to forty pound a game, even for games that turn out to be quite bad, I just can’t afford to buy every game when it comes out. Nor would I want to, it’s my money…I’m discerning with it. Using a rental service (which we’ve had for about a year now) really helps. We have a whole list of games, ‘B games’ we call them, which we kiiiind of fancy playing…but we suspect they won’t be good/worth the money/or anything we’ll want to keep.

So, onto Enslaved…

Silent Hill 2 Let’s (not) Play – final week six! (Sort of)

Our final week of playing Silent Hill 2, and it’s a fairly short one, with just three parts, the end credits, and our talkie. It’s a sort of finale, as we are going to be playing the optional scenario “Born from a Wish” which our player Scott hasn’t played either. Look forward to it soon!

We’ll be putting up a fun little teaser for the “Born from a Wish” scenario soon, so we’ll see you then!
