This past September, when we all feared for the end of the world and the subsequent armageddon that would follow. I was spending time thinking of new ideas for completeBS that would be interesting and fruitful. But quickly realized that I haven’t the skill for either of those and opted for different words to base my creativity on. So I went with “mostly understood”, two words that I can really work with. And after much brain storming I had created the 1337 Game Review.
I had no idea that forcing myself to reaching a word count would be as hard as it was, and still is many times. I had no idea what I would be writing about with each one. I did know that only playing a game for 22 minutes wouldn’t be enough to build the base for a solid topic of discussion. I did know that this whole idea was a new challenge for me, and that I almost expected myself to fail miserably after the first trial. I did know that there was the chance that a format like this could force myself into improving how I write, which is something I could certainly use. But I didn’t know it would affect me on a gaming level.
If ya smell what The Rock is cookin!
Ah Splinter Cell, how I love thee. Possibly one of my favorite series to play on PlayStation 2. I remember picking up the first Splinter Cell shortly after its release for PS2. I was intrigued with the game, and its stealth action. I hadn’t played many stealth games before this one, and the whole concept was new to me. The idea that the game could be played without killing a single enemy. Except for the last one, its important that you kill him.
But flash forward a number of years, I can’t seem to find either of my original copies of the first two Splinter Cell games for PS2. But along comes Steams Community Market, and with my first earnings I decided to buy something from my wishlist, and it just so happened that Splinter Cell was on sale. So I picked up both Splinter Cell and F.E.A.R. for less than $5 total. That means Splinter Cell today, F.E.A.R. next week!
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell is a series of award-winning action-adventure stealth video games, the first of which was released in 2002, and their tie-in novels. The protagonist, Sam Fisher, is a highly-trained agent of a fictional black-ops sub-division within the NSA, dubbed “Third Echelon”. The player controls Fisher, who usually has the iconic trifocal goggles at his disposal, to overcome his adversaries in levels based on Unreal engines that were extended to emphasise light and darkness as gameplay elements. All the console and PC games in the series were critically acclaimed, and the series is commercially successful. The series, along with Assassin’s Creed, is considered to be one of Ubisoft’s flagship franchises. -Wikipedia
And another Imperial March to May the Fourth Star Wars Spectacular has come to an end. It was a great run, playing some classic Star Wars games, and enjoying some great times in another universe. But all good things must come to an end.
There will be more things to come to completeBS in the coming months, although not much, if any, of it will be Star Wars. We can’t survive solely on Star Wars games, we have to get around to other things too!
But here is the breakdown of all things Star Wars that happened!
