Welp. I kind of failed at Four in February this year. I was successful last year, but I ended up having a lot more stuff to do this year that had nothing to do with video games. Who knew that I had all this work to do? Real life sucks sometimes.
February was filled with work, decorating our house, moving furniture, litterbox scooping… Gaming didn’t fit into that very well. Anyway, without further ado, here is my fail list for Four in February 2014.
Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
Okay, this was more of a Pyrrhic victory than a straight up failure. This DLC package for Borderlands 2 is the only one of my Four that I beat. I played through it in a co-op game with Hubbles. We liked it well enough at first, but some of the missions are so tedious that playing became a real drag. Der monstrositat frustrated us to the point where we just abandoned the mission entirely.
We died many cheap deaths before we ever even got to the terribly designed final boss – who, by the way, sucked all the remaining fun out of this DLC. It should be renamed “Cheap Death Magee.” Borderlands usually has enough character and humor to offset small gameplay issues, but “Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt” was sorely lacking in the fun department. Simply put, I don’t recommend it very highly.
I just plain suck at beating Pokemon games in a timely fashion. All I planned to do this month was to beat the last four gym leaders, but I only beat two of them. Oh, well. At least my goal made me progress a tiny bit faster than I normally do. I intend to get the last two badges this month for “More in March.” More in March is a thing that folks on the Four in February facebook page invented last year for those who didn’t finish their Four in February. I plan to make good use of it after my terrible performance last month. That’s two weeks to prepare for each gym. If I can’t handle that then I have bigger problems than “real life.”
You know how I said that I was doing well with this one two weeks ago? Uh, about that… For no reason whatsoever I suddenly stopped playing it. This game is so fun. Why did I start ignoring it? I must remedy this ASAP. Unfortunately, I won’t have time to play it for at least a day. WHYYYYYYYY
Yup… Still haven’t touched it. I haven’t even set up my retro gaming station. I am made of fail.
I am ashamed. I hope you did better with Four in February than I did. The only thing left for me to do is cry and play catchup for More in March.
