Summer continues on and so too does the drought of big games. A good time to finish up some games on your backlog!

I forgot Hyper Scape released in beta last month. I forgot it even existed. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, I haven’t played it yet, but that name and it being yet another battle royale have made it completely unmemorable to me. I will probably forget about it once I’m done writing up this post.

Lurch of the SoCal

I’m playing Tropico 4 right now. It’s really become my goto break between bigger games.

Had been playing through AC:Syndicate and got to where I was losing interest in the story again. Figured “Hey, I worked through Origins but still haven’t started up Odyssey - let’s fix that”.

For me, bad idea. The gameplay’s JUST similar enough to Syndicate but still wildly different that it’s nearly impossible to play with my current... I don’t know... wiring? gameplay expectations? Let’s just say I keep trying to use Syndicate’s skillset in a game that is related to it, but changed enough that this is a great way to flail around and do nothing.

So, back to Tropico for a few levels of horribly non-PC island building to clear my mind and reset.
