For my first year milestone of blogging, I thought I’d talk about my favourite subject, gaming!
My first post was a look at my video game origins, which you can check out here, and I thought it would be fitting to try to continue on with how my gaming tastes have shaped into the present with what I have narrowed down to my top three favourites over the years.
I bought the Square Enix Christmas Surprise a couple of days ago, the first ‘surprise bundle’ I’ve ever tried, which required you to pay £4.99 for six steam keys and three special offers usable in their store.
The catch was that as it was a surprise, those six steam keys could be for any Square Enix game. This meant there was plenty of speculation prior to the reveal and it was all quite exciting on the day of the announcement – at least for me!
Thankfully I don’t own many Square Enix games already or this may have been an issue for people who did since there was a significant chance of receiving the same game. I was just hoping to avoid Just Cause 2, Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider which were all luckily not included.
Those which were included were: Deus Ex: The Fall, Lara Croft and the Guardian of the Light, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Nosworth – Warlord Pack, The Last Remnant and Thief: Master Thief Edition.
Now from those, bearing in mind the bundle cost £4.99, I was delighted to see Thief. This was a game, despite some negativity from those familiar with the franchise, that I was hoping to play at some point anyway. I wasn’t too impressed with the rest however on first glance.
