Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 25 is “Who do you cheat on WoW with?”. You can find other people’s posts on their website.
WoW is love, WoW is life but I enjoy other games occasionally. Usually on weekends when I’m done with my dailies, emissaries and mount runs and I’m not in a mood for achievements or PvP. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, these are the games I play:
Assassin’s Creed games
My flatmate played various Assassin’s Creed games a lot and they always looked gorgeous and interesting so one day, I tried it. I played through the first one and quite enjoyed it. It’s from 2007 and it didn’t age well (video games barely do, in my opinion) and I struggled with the combat system but the story was captivating and the main character, Altaïr, was a lovable bastard.
I started the second one, Assassin’s Creed II, but haven’t got far yet. It looks better and the combat system is much easier. The story seems interesting so far and I hang out with Leonardo da Vinci. The main character, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, is a dummy so I hope he’ll find a brain along the way.
I love the visuals of this game. It’s mostly because of the clothes. They have some pretty amazing clothes.
I used to play Counter Strike when my brother organised LAN parties in our basement. I was average at it and I’m pretty bad at Overwatch but I love it! I never thought I’d play first-person shooter but I loved the characters and visuals. Blizz occasionally does Overwatch Free Weekend when you can play for free so I decided to try it and bought the game two days later.
Next one is actually this weekend, September 22–25, so if you haven’t played Overwatch, you can try. I understand it’s not for everyone but I have a lot of fun playing it. I usually play McCree (he’s voiced by my crush and obsession Matt Mercer) or Zenyatta who’ s a healer.
Look at him. What a bad-ass motherf*cker!
Divinity: Original Sin
A friend suggested we play this RPG together because it has a solid multiplayer mode. The combat is turn-based which I don’t like but the gameplay is fine otherwise.
I find the overall story confusing at times but the side quests are fun. My character can speak with animals and it’s always funny. The voice acting in this game is amazing! There’s also an interesting crafting system and I’m constantly trying to bind different items together to see if something happens.
I usually enjoy it but it’s not my favourite style so I hope we finish it soon. I think I’ll suggest Diablo III as another game we could play together. I played through the main story about two years ago and it was great.
I have a list of various other games I would like to play (The Sims 4, Warcraft games, Deus Ex, Dragon Age games, Mass Effect games, .. ) but I already don’t have enough time to finish the ones I started. I really should stop falling in love with franchises and series..
