For this Cinco de Mayo challenge I took on the colossal task of beating 5 games in May. I finished earlier than I thought because The Stanley Parable was quite short, but any way, here are my impressions: Read more
For this Cinco de Mayo challenge I'm trying to beat these 5 games:
I've spent many hours playing Splatoon's multiplayer matches, but I had barely scratched its single player campaign. This May is the month I'll beat the crap out of those octopuses.
Table Top Racing: World Tour
This game was given away as a PS+ freebie this month. I don't have any other racing games for my PS4 so it'll be a nice change of pace to my gaming routine. I'm going to go for the 6 championship gold cups available in the base game.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 3
I played through the main story mode for One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 back in April. However, there are plenty of characters to be unlocked in the Dream Log mode, which seems to take longer to complete than the main log. I'll consider it complete when I have unlocked all characters, including Shanks. Speaking of Shanks...
I bought this game a long time ago as a part of a Humble Bundle. It always seemed interesting to me, but my lack of PC controller made me hesitate. It's been in the backlog for years, and it's time I give this one a go. I'll find time later to play Shank 2 which I also own... Darn bundles...
The Stanley Parable
I'm taking The Stanley Parable for this Cinco de Mayo just as I took Gone Home for the 4 in February. It's supposed to be short and it's well regarded by the critics so I hope I enjoy it as much as Gone Home.
May is just around the corner, and with it, comes the most Mexican holiday that's celebrated in the US. Cinco de Mayo, or May 5th, commemorates the victory over the invading french in the state of Puebla. Here in Mexico it's not a big deal, schools are closed for the day and that's it. For the Americans it meant that France wasn't able to support the South during the Civil War. Things would be very different now if the outcome would have been different... perhaps we would be like Canada and have a double first language.
Now, you're probably thinking, what does it have to do with video games? The battle of Puebla was like David and Goliath. The French had more and better equipped soldiers, but the Mexicans stood their ground and scored a critical hit against European invasions. In this case Goliath is our backlog and David is our willingness to finish five games during May. See? Cinco de Mayo, wink, wink.
That's right, since May has 4 and a half weekends this year, it should be enough time to play through 5 games. I know I did it last year, and this year I invite you to join us in this challenge just like we did back for #4iF.
