Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XIV

So…..yeah…..

I didn’t get much time last week to play, but this is not a pointless update. As of last weekend, I have officially gone digital – meaning you can now watch my quest live and follow the recaps on two video channels: one on twitch.tv and one on YouTube (see below for links and details).

Everytime that I log in to play through one of my unbeaten games, I will sign into twitch.tv and livestream my gameplay (typically 7 PM to 10 PM EST on weeknights and random times on weekends). If you don’t want to constantly be checking for the livestream, you can always follow me on twitter @lazy_guardian. I promise to tweet each time I start livestreaming.

With that having been said, I will be continuing my quest to finish Prince of Persia...

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XIII

Welcome one-and-all to another blog entry/episode of Unbeaten Games.

This morning I beat the infamous Ninja Gaiden 2. While it was thoroughly enjoyable (I had a craving for the hack-n-slash style of game with DMC‘s release this week), this game was a pain in the ass. Even on the easiest difficulty (Acolyte), I was dying repeatedly. Perhaps, this is due to my lack of skill in the genre; however, I found this game to be much harder to beat than it needed to be. Needless to say, I definitely recommend Ninja Gaiden 2 to anyone who likes the hack-n-slash style of gameplay (and maybe has masochistic tendancies).

With another one down, it’s time I set my sights on the next game. Since the feedback last week was minimal and later than anticipated, I’ve decided to start on a game of my choosing: P...

Autumnal Waterfall 29 – I’m Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road

I’mma back and I’mma ready to jam.

And by jam I mean drive. Drive trucks. Across Europe. In the best (and only) truck driving simulator I have ever played, Euro Truck Simulator 2.

As you can tell, it is a simulation game giving people who should never operate heavy machinery the ability to drive trucks. The game isn’t quite so extreme in having real time driving. I mean that you don’t have to drive a route for hours at a time. Most early routes I’ve played have probably taken around 15 minutes.

Here is the website for the game. Game itself is $40 but they have quite a robust demo.

Now then, on to the game.

Euro Truck Simulator, the mo...

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XII

Annnnddd…. we’re back for another entry into the Unbeaten Games blog!

Fortunately, I have good news to report for this week. On Friday, I beat Halo 4 on the Solo Legendary campaign. This means that I feel comfortable enough removing it from my list; however, like several other games on this list, I am not completely satisfied with just beating the story so I do plan on going back and completing the rest of the items (mostly, achievements). Sound off in the comments below if you’d like for me to start a new blog series around achievement hunting/whoring.

With Halo 4 complete, I need to move onto the next game, but I’m not sure which game that should be. I am leaning towards Assassin’s Creed III, Black Ops II, Ninja Gaiden 2, or Phantasy Star Universe...

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XI

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all!

I just realized that it has been a while since I made the last entry into this blog so I thought I’d give an update. As you could predict, I got 3 new games in November and December (Assassin’s Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Halo 4) and did not manage my time well between the three of them. None of the three are close to being beaten on any difficulty. Thus, my numbers have inflated once more.

My new goal is to get this list down to single digits by the summer time (end of May). Hopefully, I’ll be able to accomplish that. For now, I’m going to focus my attention on beating Halo 4 on Solo Legendary (3 of 9 missions done).

I will give you all an update next week! As always, leave your comments below.
