Up and Down.


I'm in that up-stage at the moment, where I'm playing through a bunch of games that I own, but haven't played yet.


I started with "The Crew".  I heard that the second one came out so I wanted to give it a shot.  The game successfully fills the GTA Peaceful Driving itch that I sometimes get.  Just driving about with the changing scenery is really nice.  The actual missions of the game are a bit bland I guess.  The achievements for this game seem to be broken on my console as well which is a bit annoying.  But it fills what I want in a driving game.


I also played through the whole of "Minecraft: Story Mode".  The game is really weird.  I think they did really well in making a game that had a different plot that wasn't just a repackaged game by Telltale.  The voice acting in the game is surprisingly good.  It takes a hard nose dive around Episode 6 where they try to pander to the "Minecraft Youtube" kind of kids which was made up by the VA of the one character with the read hair.  Episodes 5-8 are the most interesting out the lot of them, with 1-4 being good in the moment.  I enjoyed it much more than the Wolf Among Us, but that might be because I just know Minecraft really well, and the writers do too, because there are story points that could only be there if someone who knew the game well wrote it, so good on those guys I guess.


Today I'm gonna play more of The Crew, and maybe start the Telltale "Game of Thrones" if I feel up for it!
