I recall saying of Avatar that I didn’t care if Sam Worthington was blue, I’d still do him. That’s a fortunate attitude, since the Terminator 4 actor is donning the blue body paint again for the movie version of 2000 AD‘s second-most-popular character (after Judge Dredd).
Seriously, has he played every game that there’s ever been? I’m staring incredulously at my nephew’s gamerscore. Sure, there’s a couple of games I beat him on, but on the whole he’s got twice as many Achievements as me on my entire game collection, plus at least twice as many other games, including – bafflingly – the Harry Potter games. I’m impressed he got further into Fable II than me. Teenagers must have greater attention spans than easily-bored thirty-somethings. So, yes, I’m making my way through The Pile – this time, of unplayed console games. Since these belong to my husband – Him Indoors, as I call him – he chips in with advice during my marathon play-through.
Him Indoors: You need to try Enslaved first. Seriously. It’s the most excited I’ve been about a game in ages.
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
The game hasn’t actually arrived yet. HI ordered it a few days back, but what with the bank holidays things aren’t travelling as fast as they should. So I’ve downloaded the demo, and off we go.
