I have had a really lazy week this week.
I have taken a break from job applications, courses and housework to sit on my behind and have a really good crack at some of the Xbox games that have been denying me for too long.
Not that I may necessarily have been stuck however, some of these games I had just stopped playing because I got bored, or moved on to another game, or it crashed and I was too tired and annoyed to go back to my last save point.
Usually, when these situations occur, and I cannot progress for love nor money, I call my brother in law, who has an uncanny knack for pulling off in one go what has been troubling me for some time.
Or, I will be showing him how impossible this particular section of the game is….and complete it first time I load it up!.
This week, it must have been my wife as my lucky charm, who likes to read and watch me playing my games and offer help and support. Over half a dozen games gave way under my relentless assault!.
Admittedly, some of these revelations were shortlived as I proceeded to get stuck five minuites later… but that’s not the point is it? I got past that part!. The part I had been stuck on for so long.
An example. The last time I played Mass Effect 2 before the wedding, I got to a certain part which was pretty hard, and as I finished it, the Xbox thought that was the perfect time to freeze solid…
I was NOT going to do that part again anytime soon. No Sir.
And there it sat until last night, where I replayed it finally and the game ended literally minutes after that fight.. to say i was a touch annoyed was an understatement!.
And they will probably be the only games on my mind for the near future.
