Blog a Day 248of365: Today, I ramble

I was going to write the next part of the film blogging but the topic is ‘a character who you can relate to the most’. Having spent a few minutes staring blankly at the screen, I have no idea who that character is. I’ll return to it later on when I’ve had some serious time to think.

So this is going to be a bit of a filler entry. I’m not really in the mood to write. I’m feeling distinctly nervous about work later (I’ll explain another time why, probably) and generally under par. I’m aiming to turn this around for the coming week and work extra hard at the writing for the coming week. It’s one of the generally positive things that I do so it makes sense.

I feel rather in need of some positive things to happen. The negative things are starting to batter me mentally! I’m sure it’s character building but I feel like I’ve got a strong enough character now!


I spent some of the morning playing Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. I didn’t have overly high expectations of it. Although I’ve owned Dead Rising for as long as I’ve had a 360 (4 years now), I’ve never really played it. I’m terrible at it simply put. I can’t beat that damn chainsaw wielding clown even though I know exactly what I need to do so I’ve never really spent decent time with it. Case Zero however is really good fun and it makes me much more keen to play Dead Rising 2. It’s just so much fun wandering around hitting zombies with baseball bats, simply put.

I’m looking forward to spending more time with it soon. It’s a similar tale with an ever growing collection of games actually. I really want to complete Dragon Age: Awakenings soon as well as Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. I think I need to stop stressing and get on with using my free time properly!

  1. I enjoyed Dead Rising but the bosses were horrendously unbalanced. And you’d often come across one with no warning, be completely unarmed and thus die horribly. Not fun. I’m hoping they’ve fixed that in the sequel, because I loved the concept of the original. I too intend to return to it sometime.

    Haven’t picked up DA Awakening yet. I’m halfway through a second playthrough with a bitchy female elf rogue. It was fun but I got distracted by something else. Also I just found a cheap copy of Fable II which is just fantastic.

  2. Ian

    Obviously I’m under embargo so won’t say either way, but I don’t think you’ll get good odds on them having fixed the boss battles to make them less insanely twatty. Let’s just put it that way.

  3. It seems to me that they decided to fix precisely none of the issues I had with the original.

    In what world does playing a game halfway through and then being forced to restart because of the, frankly, retarded exp/levelling system equate to fun? I blame Dead Rising and Castle Crashers for this stupid design trend.
