    Ahhh yes I remember the sweep guards with long weapon one. I think that was one of the few I didn't get in that game. Side missions are cool generally. Assassination missions and so on can be really good. I'm enjoying sneaking into plantations etc to raid warehouses so that's all good. I'm JUST reaching the stage that I do in AC games where I get fearless and just wander around killing soldiers without a care. Taking on the British HQ by myself last night was amazing. Very different to when I snuck into the Spanish one a couple of weeks ago.

    18 measly percent.
     
    I found myself chasing down all the chests and pieces of whatever, bottles, secrets and so on and then asked myself a question: Am I seriously going to try to get 100% of everything?
     
    Of course the answer is no so I'm not bothering so much now. Not even looked at what I need to complete to get trophies (as is my usual style). So 18% is probably mostly just through storyline with the odd nugget of doing something enough times to get a bronze. I'll probably do stuff like capturing all the forts and trying to sink all the mythical ships, but that feels more part of the game than grabbing stuff.
     
    I ended up thinking the same with Brotherhood. I completed the story and was totally happy just to leave it there. Looking at my trophy collection most of my games sit between 15% and 30%. Heh.

    Nagatomo's pretty decent. Leicester have made a few interesting signings in the last year and a bit.

    I liked Portable Ops, mostly cos it was MGS on PSP. Also had the vouce of Dwight Schultz. Squad sysyem was interesting.

    Metal Gear Acid was brilliant by the way. Played like a board game somewhat. Loved it, even more ridiculous plot though with marionettes hijacking an aeroplane or something.

    MGS4 is brilliant. I was an emotional wreck for most of it.
     
    My main issue with this one is the lack of David Hayter. So sad.

    Both being games that can be hugely overplayed....like Munchkin. However people latch onto a game and always want to play it. Which can be annoying.

    I picked up Black Flag for like £6 recently. Loved Assassins Creed, 2 and Brotherhood. Didn't fancy 3 after the reviews.
     
     
    Loving this one though. A rich world, beautiful for PS3 and the ocean actually feels like a living, breathing place rather than a watery road. Some of those waves in the storms are huuuuuge.

    Our band: Update
    So I've been playing with Tiny Ghost for a year now and we've come a long way since our first gig together on 1st November. We've played with some great local bands. I've got to meet Ollie through starting to play in and spend more time in Chatham. We're playing regularly in Canterbury, Ashford, have plaued in Maidstone and Rochester and have got gigs coming up in Folkestone (including a festival with 200+ tickets sold).
    We're getting tight and people are starting to follow us. We've got bands we work with and now promoters and venues are asking for us. I'm so glad I went for it when I had the chance.
     
    Here's a video from our drummer's birthday party gig a few weeks back. It's our Mogwai-ish instrumental. Hope you enjoy.

    Convention Update:
     
    Imperial Settlers is great. Lots of you would enjoy it.

     
    Brew Crafters was decent enough but we both agreed that we'd always choose Agricola over it if we wanted to play a "worker placement" game.

     
     
     
    Other games I played for the first time in order of how good they were:
    1. Dark Moon (originally Battlestar Galactica dice game rethemed and properly released with a look that borrows heavily from Alien, therefore I love it)
    2. Patchistory
    3. Patchwork
    4. The Game (working together to get rid of your cards)
    5. Castle Dice
    6. Machi Koro
    7. Flip City
     
     
    And just before I left someone in a Facebook group was selling Tragedy Looper for £20 so I went for it and it arrived today. SUCH EXCITEMENT!
     


    One person plays the evil mastermind who is trying to complete a master plan involving someone killing someone else or committing suicide or something. The other players (protagonists) work together against him to try to prevent the evil plan. However at the start they have no idea what that plan is. If the mastermind completes his mission then the day loops back and the protagonists get to try and stop it again, armed with a little more information than the time before. Fail again and they loop back again with more information. They have a limited number of loops to try to stop the nefarious deed.

    People have already produced rethemed cards for Persona and for Danganronpa. It also comes with ways for you to come up with your own missions, characters and such like. Very very very exciting. It's a Japanese game that got an English language release recently.

    Yeah Love Letter really needs three or four.
     
    On the other hand, Guillotine gets weaker as you fill up the player count - there's less strategy for a start and just dealing with what's presented to you.
    Anyway the mrs and I are in Stoke at the weekend for The Cast Are Dice board fame convention. Hoping to try Imperial Settlers, Brew Crafters and ideally Tragedy Looper which is a current grail for me.

    Our drummer just found this so I had another go and scored 904! Wahey! With my other hand I was hitting the off-beat.
