Drake’s Fortune February 26, 2010

Since Sony took away my 100% on Uncharted 2, I decided to finish Drake’s Fortune on Crushing. I was at chapter 18 anyway. Wow, I think this one is harder than UC2. It took forever for me to get through a couple of the areas. But the final fight was easy compared to UC2’s fights. So now I have 100% on Drake’s Fortune. Yes!

 

100% Vanished

I no longer have 100% on my trophy list under Uncharted 2. Bummer. I worked so hard to get that. The reason it’s gone is because the DLC came out yesterday. There are multiplayer trophies to be won, bringing players back to the game. Most of the peeps from the BPC are going to get the DLC, so I’ll probably get it too. Might as well try to get that 100% back.

 

Tomb Raider: Underworld February 22, 2010

I used to be a big fan of the Tomb Raider games. They were always challenging with all the puzzles to solve.  The last one I played was Chronicles and by that time I had had enough of the weird enemies. I don’t like games with zombies, monsters, ghosts, etc. anyway. So I quit playing.

I recently borrowed Underworld from the library. Yes, my library has games for all consoles that can be borrowed. I wanted to give the game another chance, but it still turns out that I’m just not into it anymore. I played it all the way through anyway and got 100%, but with the help of a walkthrough. And I only used a walkthrough because I’m only going to borrow it once and wanted to finish it.

The game was buggy. Very buggy. It froze up my PS3 numerous times. When riding the motorcycle, the motion is not smooth at all. But the graphics were impressive and I enjoyed the story.  We’ll see if I play the next one.

100%….I finished the game on Crushing. My first platinum trophy and the first 100% on my trophy list. Yeah, I’m happy.

 

BPC MAG Night February 18, 2010

Filed under: MAG — diversewoman @ 00:33

Well, the title says BPC MAG night, but really every night is MAG night. Probably until Battlefield Bad Company 2 comes out. I won’t be getting that one. I finished the first one in 5 hours and any game that I can finish in a day or even a week isn’t worth getting. That’s just me though.

I really need to start keeping track of what maps we play and whether we win or lose. Just for my benefit. I like stats, what can I say? We won a few games tonight. The first time for me winning several matches in one night. I am a level 26 now. I have 9 skill points I need to spend on something. I’ll do that tomorrow. I think I’ll try anti-personnel mines. That’s what they’re called in MAG. When I was in the Army we called them claymores, so I still call them that.

 

MAG Night February 17, 2010

Just finished playing a few Acquistion and Domination missions with my peeps. I applied for Squad Leader and luckily the first go around was in Acquisition. That was earlier today. Then this evening, we played a Domination round and oh no! I was Squad Leader. I am not comfortable with this mission playing grunt, and now I’ve got to lead the squad. Fortunately, my peeps helped me out, but I found it very confusing. Maybe tomorrow I’ll do a few rounds of Sabotage and see if I get SL so I can practice. There’s only one Frago you can set, so it will be a little easier. However, I’ll be playing with random strangers and most likely foreigners who may or may not speak English. That’s okay by me.

 

Females in MAG February 15, 2010

I often wonder how many women actually play this game. There are at least 5 of us in the BPC who play it.

Two weeks ago I was playing in the afternoon with random players. When I’m playing alone I usually stick to Suppression or Sabotage. And I rarely use my mic when playing with random players. And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you why. But I will anyway. harassment. Some guys just can’t help making a fool of themselves. “Hey, will you be my girlfriend?”   “Are you hot”?  Or they will run around trying to violate your character.

Anyway, I was playing a round of Sabotage and I was helping 3 or 4 guys defend objective A. One guy went down and I said “don’t bleed out, I’m a medic”. Another guy said “Wow, you are the first woman I’ve heard in this game.” I told him about the BPC and that a few of us play. He really didn’t say anything after that, but a few guys learned to call for me when they were down. And we won.

Last week me and a fellow BPC’er were playing in the afternoon. When the mission started, we were talking about strategy and a female voice chimed in. I couldn’t believe it! She was skilled in the game and knew it well. We all communicated well together, we healed each other, but with only 5 people in our squad, we lost. But we gave Valor a run for their money.

I hope to run into other females in game. And I have probably played with other females, but they weren’t using their mic. Understandably. I think it would be cool to have an all female squad. I can always hope.
