Weekly Geekery

Beej

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake
    • Gotta write a full review of this one
    • So much better than I ever expected it would be
    • Made me go back and play FFVII on the Switch
      • Took me roughly an hour to get to where I was at hour 30 in FF7R.

Void

  • Hitman 2
    • Looking for next level to dig into after doing like… everything in “The Finish Line” Miami Mission
      • I think it was like 90 individual achievements
      • Breakdown of them is interesting
        • Guided
          • Literally has giant waypoint indicators, target indicators, and your handler in your earpiece telling you what to do
          • These are the best ways to start getting your head around a level
        • Discovery
          • Find every area of a map
          • Usually about 50 “named” areas
        • Feats
          • Break a fish tank
        • Assassinations
          • Knock someone out with a fish and throw them in a fish tank to kill them
        • Classic
          • Silent Assassin (don’t get spotted)
          • Silent Assassin only using the suit and no disguises
          • Silent Assassin while taking out everyone with a sniper rifle
          • Etc, etc, etc
    • Expansion pass?
    • Legacy Pass?
  • Comixology unlimited
    • Finished reading everything I wanted to!
    • Kind of a weird mix because they don’t own Image, Marvel, or DC
      • A lot of Volume one of comics but then you still have to pay for later volumes
      • You can tell they’re trying to build up their own unique exclusive comics but they haven’t had enough time to get a big backlog yet.
    • Giant Days
      • Read through the full run that was on Comixology Unlimited
      • Through Vol 8
      • The series is just wrapping up in issue format so I might wait until it’s finished and then binge the rest
