#4iF WRUP

Friday before February, so here we go with a special #4iF WRUP

As already mentioned, we are again taking part in this year’s Four in February and so should you! Rules can be found here.
I really wanted to do a Hardcore run this year. The Witcher 3, Fallout 4 and Rogue Galaxy still need some of my attention and I thought why not finish them during #4iF (together with Xenoblade Chronicles X), but let’s be honest… no one would be able to do that, especially since I want to finally redesign the homepage (spoiler: we’re ditching the dark theme, unless you really don’t want us to) and have some serious work in front of me too.

So instead I go with something more manageable:

1: Neo Tomb Raider 2, aka. Rise of the Tomb Raider

It’s been out on the Xbox One since last year, but I really wasn’t a fan of Microsoft’s decision to buy the exclusivity. The PC version also looks and runs better (at least in theory), so there’s that too.

2: Dropsy

Oh, Dropsy. Like most entries on this list, I already started playing it (in this case: a week ago). Dropsy will probably be one of the harder games to finish. Not because it’s long or especially hard, but because it’s so very sad. Also very happy in a way, but so, so, soooo very sad. It’s basically an old-school point & click adventure that tells the tale of Dropsy the Clown, who was involved in some accident at the circus which killed a bunch of people. Everyone in the town is depressed and it’s your job to make them feel better and hug them. Got a helper complex? This is the game for you.

3: Life is Strange

I’ve been eyeing that for a while now, even started with Episode 1 two months ago, or so, but with all the recent releases I was fast to drop it again. What I’ve seen was interesting however and I’m actually really looking forward to finally finishing it.

4: Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2/The Witness/Bedlam

The fourth will very much depend on my mood. Walking Dead would be great, because I finally got my girlfriend to play some more story focused video games with Season 1 and this would allow us to talk a bit about a game we both play at the same time. On the other hand I’m not quite sure if I’m willing to play this in the same month I’m tackling Life is Strange and Dropsy.
The Witness is something I’m absolutely in love with at the moment and I will certainly dedicate much of my February gaming to it, but finishing it? I have no idea if there even is a way to finish it. This game is still a complete mystery to me… one of the reasons I love it.
So maybe I’ll just go with Bedlam instead. I already mentioned it in a recent podcast. It’s the game that’s inspired by 90’s FPS games. No idea how long it actually is, but I doubt we are talking Morrowind hours here.

 

And there you have it. One of these games will be my WRUP this weekend (hey, there are no rules against head starts :p )

What is everyone else playing over the Weekend?

(Will get updated with more as they roll in. Forgot to remind people that Friday is WRUP day…)
