Here is a quick look at the games I’ve been playing recently. I’ll try to post some updates on progress now and then.
This time around, I finished Metal Gear Solid (1998), some World of Warcraft, Destiny 2, and Diablo 3.
Metal Gear Solid (1998)
I finally completed Metal Gear Solid after many deaths from the Metal Gear mech and the fist fight with Liquid Snake.
MGS is a game I watched being played and beaten. Though it’s been so long I could only remember pieces of it. Needing to transform the card key between rooms was one of those pieces, though I thought it was in a different game in the series.
Finishing it myself was gratifying. There were a lot of frustrating and tiring moments. I have the Metal Gear Solid HD Collect (MGS 2, 3, Peace Walker) to finish at some point.
World of Warcraft
I jumped on WoW and ran an instance of “The Motherlode!”, which was interesting experience with other players. I was playing with a new tank (but not new to the instance) and unfortunately I kept aggroing mobs when I chased bubbles from the Azerite armor talent Secrets of the Deep. I may need to switch that out. The dungeon map for “The Motherlode!” is pretty open with branching pathways. If you meander or lag behind, it’s easy to accidentally pull enemies. So far this is my least preferred Dungeon, strangely, this makes me want to play it more so that I will learn how to do it right. My favorite Dungeon so far is Waycrest Manor.
