Concerning Collectibles

I know i have spent some time talking about collectibles before on my blog. I felt that today I would dive a little deeper to make some distinctions between the types of collectibles a game typically has and give a way to characterize them. In my opinion there are four types of collectibles that youContinue reading “Concerning Collectibles”

Rant on No Death Achievements

I’ll be honest. I despise these types of achievements. There are so many types of these kinds of achievements and for some reason they always love to put them in the most difficult games. I mean the game is already hard enough so why do we have to add on extra challenges like that? ThereContinue reading “Rant on No Death Achievements”

Inefficient Inventory and I

I am an ineffiecient individual. I can’t initiate a task unless I make it so its improbable that I don’t leave it incomplete. I don’t know if I invigorate myself by inviting impossible challenges, but I am the inverse of inefficent. Wait, I mean the inverse of the inverse. Well, now I am incompetent. Ideally,Continue reading “Inefficient Inventory and I”
