    Day 50 proves me a fool. Yesterday and today were spent trying to find my way to Athens in Titan Quest… and while I DID go back and beat the tar our of that cyclops now that I was his level, it was only at the end of tonight that I realized there was an exit on the other side of the Gorgon’s tunnel that leads where I needed to go, requiring me…[Read more]

    Day 49 was a re-start of Overlord, this time with several changes. Most importantly, we are now playing with the Raising Hell expansion installed (default if you get the game on gog), which SHOULD prevent the bug we had last time. But we are also now playing downstairs on the less powerful machine with a 360 controller on the TV! We just got back…[Read more]

    Day 48 proved our first REAL frustration since every playing for the 100 Days of gaming when a bug in the Steam version of Overlord actually prevented us from summoning minions in our save game, effectively ending the run before we could begin a second session! It seems to be resolved now by deleting our saves and installing the Raising Hell…[Read more]

    Day 47 ends in TRIUMPH as we not only beat the lead of the current monster army in our adventure through Titan Quest, but we found out who summoned them and where he took the rest! We begin following the trail to Athens!

    Day 46 sees us starting a new game, even if it’s fairly old. Tonight, we started Overlord, and my GOD is it fun running minions around like that! And we’ve only just begun! (those hobbit freaks are gonna LEARN what fear is…. if they dont know already… >:D)

    Day 45 was a COMPLETE success in Dauntless! Tonight we have not only taken down our first Hellion (if by the skin of our teeth!) but we finally finished hunting Embermanes! Not only that, but we got the comedy of a graphical issue I will report to the devs when done reporting tonight’s work… cause Im pretty sure Embermanes, who are big firey…[Read more]

    Day 44 completed with one more Demo-Day! Today we played two demos on the Xbox one: ‘n Verlore Verstand and Halo Wars 2. The first took 40 minutes to complete and wore all the hallmarks of a rushed out indie project to try to get some quick cash… including rocks that you could stand on, but could whip around to a new spot without you staying on…[Read more]

    Day 43 is finished with another round of Titan Quest. Tonight, we got through the caves and found a new town… I think… it’s kinda populated with big beasts that want to kick my ass, even as one of them will do business buying and selling with me…. I am… confused. But we will figure that out later.

    Day 42 completes with another one-shot game. This time the game was Fly in the House. In this game we play a man returning home to figure out something… but you never get the chance or find out why because a freaking fly sends you into a blind rage as you wreck everything in front of you as you try to kill that fly! Unfortunately this is an…[Read more]

    Day 41 completed as we FINALLY pushed the main story forward in Titan Quest. We had finally reached Delphi on day 39, and after making sure we didn’t miss any special monsters to kill, we spoke with the Seer there who told us we would find the source of the monsters all over Greece. We began to explore the cave and avenged a widow’s husband…[Read more]

    Day 40 was a one shot competion. Today we played Meteor 60 Seconds! a free game on Steam that struck me as something that could be fun and would at least be a small dose of comedy. And while I was right, there was a bit more then I expected.

    Day 39 (yesterday) was time for more Titan Quest… and after an hour and a half we not only had an olive branch to offer the seer, we reached Delphi! Now that’s not to say I’m not back tracking next time we play this…. I was under a time scheduled due to a slow-cooker in my kitchen so I couldn’t explore as much as I wanted, but… progress!

    Day 38 was another night of Dauntless… and hell YES tonight was epic! 4 monsters killed, one quest completed, and NO rating less then a B for me (team A or higher). Add to that 3 more fire-kitty parts for a side quest, and HELL YEAH tonight was awesome!

    Day 37 finished late as I played another Demo Friday. Tonight, we caught up with a modern classic: Resident Evil 7: The Beginning Hour. And WOW… Im impressed enough the demo has been added to my games to complete! I am impressed!

    Day 35 and 36 are complete. Day 35 was a lot of fun as we continued to explore and level up as a “Dream master.” I decided for now I do not wish to take on a second mastery since it does not increase the number of points you get to spend on masteries… they both have to use shared points. Still, we got two more side missions done as we danced…[Read more]

    As we finish day 34, we continue to make progress in what is likely gonna be the last game of the Xbox Live arcade compilation, Luxor 2. We made it to level 6, and will continue later. I honestly expected such a casual game to be over by now… even as it complete NRG ass from time to time. But it’s for the kids, so I am giving it my damndest to…[Read more]

    Day 33 is finished, and with it another session of Titan Quest. 2 more sidequests finished as we reach level 11. I still haven’t picked a second mastery, but finding out you share points between them, I want to focus 100% on the dream mastery first! Psykers for LIFE! XD

    Day 32 was more of the Xbox Live Arcade Compilation, and hoog… the full colors of this pack are beginning to show. Im pretty sure a game like Boom Boom rocket needs to be played with in some other way then the buttons on a controls, as it makes it artificially hard to quickly jump between arrows as the songs need, especially when doing diagonal…[Read more]

    Day 31 is now complete with a fresh run at Dauntless… and ooh boy did we run the gauntlet. From a misconnect to a failed hunt to two absolutely EPIC ones, one completing yet a new quest and getting me what I need to take finish a second one (frost-based weaponry).

    It’s day 30 and Demo Friday! SO what did we play? A little game called Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure! I had this demo installed on the XBox for this point and click title, and admittedly, I laughed a lot at the ways I found to die in the game. Would I call it a great game? No… but to be honest this was a lot closer to what I wanted out of…[Read more]
