What Did I Play In March?

Welcome, one and all, to my latest gaming diary! Unlike the last entry, I’m only covering the one month here, so expect a little less action in terms of what I’ve achieved. Still, it’s been a fun month for gaming for me. Let’s have a look at what I’ve been up to.

It was my birthday back on the 11th, and this was one of my presents. In truth, I’ve been looking at it since finishing Halo 4, but I just never got around to buying it. In that respect, it was an excellent gift choice! The game itself is very good, and I’m hoping to get a full review put together soon. As to how far I’ve got … I finished the solo campaign over a two-week period. So, without dropping the difficulty, it was pretty easy. But then, I found that with Halo 3 and 4 too, so it’s not really a complaint. It does make me look forward to the eventual Halo 6; I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be a One X exclusive, as there’s no way I’ll be able to get that console any time soon.

Freedom Planet (Steam)

I continued in my Freedom Planet playthrough and cleared the game as both Carol and Lilac. With Milla, I made it to the boss on the Battle Glacier, and … well … gave up. For not at least, that’s not a run I’m meant to finish it seems. As much as I like playing as Milla, I tend to get hit a lot, and her lower health scuppers me.

This is still my current project at the AllGen Gaming Centre. I haven’t been able to go down there as much as I’d like, so progress ahs been pretty slow, but I’m not struggling by any means. As it stands, I’m doing the mission just before Fox meets Krystal for the first time, which I believe puts me about a third of the way through the game. I’m happy with that.

 

And … that’s about it for my main gaming at the moment. What about all of you? What are you playing? What do you think of the games I’m getting stuck into? Let me know below!

  1. I played Star Fox Adventures on my uncle’s console years ago. The game was decent and reminded me a lot of Zelda. We never managed to beat it though. If you are stuck on Freedom Planet I believe you can lower the difficulty. Right now I am playing Tales of Berseria, which is a fun revenge tale RPG.

    1. I suspect it will take me a while to finish Star Fox. Zelda is a good Comparison though.
      I’m gonna have to check that with Freedom Planet. I’d such to only had character I haven’t finished it with.
      That sounds familiar … Is it PS4 or Vita?

      1. I believe the game is out on PS4, PS3 and PC. I am playing the PlayStation 4 version. There are loads of “Tales of” games out there. I like the story, but not the combat. Thankfully you can automate the fights.

  2. Happy [belated] Birthday!

    So you enjoyed Halo 5? I haven’t played a Halo game since Reach and recently found myself watching videos of Halo 5.

    I’ve loved playing through the Halo campaigns since the original game on the Xbox and am excited to hear that you enjoyed the latest installment. I did not truly begin to appreciate Halo until my first LAN party though. The matchmaking was fantastic and has gotten better and better with every release.

    Did you get a chance to play matchmaking in Halo 5? Is there enough of an online community to support regular, if casual, play worth the price tag of the game?

    Thanks for the great read.

    1. Hi there. In terms of the campaign I really enjoyed it. Unfortuantely, I haven’t done any online stuff with it. I’d have to subscribe to Xbox Live to do so, and I really can’t justify the fee at this point as I don’t have the time to play online that often. I understand that it is still pretty active online though. As to the price, it’s actually pretty cheap used now. Or it is in the Uk anyway.
