#128 Wolf.. I kid I kid
I am satisfied with 99% completion at the moment. I can't see myself dedicating too much time for the mein leben trophy. If that was maybe 5 years ago, I would've gave it a solid shot just like I did with Max Payne 3. Dedicating 8-9 hours (aka a whole day) is not something I can easily do. And even if I can somehow make it during the weekends, If I die, say 4-5 hours in, there goes the time you made for mein leben! Can you imagine this epic fail happening to you while nearing the end?! (yes this happened to me but thank goodness it wasn't on mein leben). (Also.. my spoiler tags aren't working properly... so I apologize in advance for having to open spoilers within spoilers)
I really liked how the DLC broke it into chapters making it much more manageable to do the dlc mein leben trophies and even making it fun/challenging tbh! If the main game did it this way, it would've made it much more manageable to do it in chunks.
Anywho, I really loved this Wolfenstein. Gunplay is as good as ever and is super satisfying blasting everything with your weapons. I captured this short video while I was going for one of the DLC challenges which almost made me tear my hairs apart! But the end result was satisfying and it gives you an idea in terms of the gameplay I suppose
Story-wise was eh, so-so. I preferred the New Order here. There were also a couple of loose ends that weren't concluded such as
the golden object thing from the Da'cht Ya'chud (I think that's how you spell it) that Wyatt/ Fergus finds.
So...There's definitely going to be a sequel .
Finally, it wouldn't be a post of mine if I didn't leave behind some soundtracks and oooh boy there were lots of goodies! (though there are some that don't sound as good to listen alone without playing the game because of how often they loop when they were recorded vs dynamically switching the soundtrack depending if you were in stealth or combat). And one thing to note is that Mick Gordon (the artist) really likes to build up his soundtracks so they usually start slow. Enjoy!
This one here is one of my favourites. It plays in the main menu and it's actually a remix of the New Order main menu theme!
Full badassery on display here especially in the combat sequence it plays in. Too much testosterone to handle
Again, another badass theme!
This one here, is just hilarious. It is actually a fictional band whereby the beatles (Die Kafer) were forced to make music for the Nazi regime. Enjoy the lyrics
These last two are epic when you're blasting nazis left and right but I am not sure how they stand up on their own. In any case, I'm posting them here for you to decide
Aaaand that's it folks. I'm planning to start Fist of the North Star next. I figured I'd play one more Yakuza-esque game before the yakuza trilogy remastered physical copy arrives in Feb 2020! Then it's probably JC4, another title I'm excited to try after enjoying JC3.

@Yuna4353 one hit = dead in a shooter game would be just utter madness .
And as for FoTNS, yea I'll be going for JP audio first with English subtitles and then I'll give English dub a shot just like I did with judgment. Can't do English dub first when kiryu's voice actor is involved!
And actually no I haven't watched the anime! I just know that the game was from RGG studios so I'm going off on that. And yea of course! I'll be posting my thoughts here as usual.
@DamagingRob haha oh man... You think I'm not having nightmares leaving it at 99% . Jokes aside, I may give it a shot during the Christmas break but I'm afraid a month of not playing the game may make it more difficult on me. We'll see!
@PooPooBlast yea it is utter madness, but at least RGG Studio is on the map. And it should be interesting to see this based upon not seeing the anime
@PooPooBlast Haha, well, good luck if you go for it. Can't believe it's only a bronze. That's a giant middle finger from the developers, if I ever saw one. :/
PooPooBlast replied to tjoe1bkhjtqxm's topic in Red Dead Redemption 2This a million times. Gosh knows how many times I reset my combat challenges! Poor bastards However to op, you might want to get good a little at certain objective based games to get the MVP trophy. I don't know how the game calculates it but it seems that it values going after objectives more than kills and so you can still be the MVP even if you didn't get the most kills and even if you were on the losing team!
Oof I haven't checked this topic in a while now! I'm glad it's still alive. Thanks guys And oh here's mine for today! Wolfenstein II (I also have a NSFW gif so I can't show it here . You probably know which one in referring to if you played the game ) And my favourite Wolfenstein: The New Order
Do any of you guys know how to link a specific status update you made ages ago or any person that made that status update?
I'm asking because the way I did it was very laborious:
I went to a really old notification tied to a status update of mine which directly took me to that status update. I then looked at the date of that status update and noted the status update number in the link section.
I then looked at the status update I wanted and noted the date for that one so in the link section I kept editing it until I stumbled into the status update I wanted! I found it by using a binary search kind of way but that's why I'm posting this .. is there a way that's less complex??
I beat the story today in Wolfenstein II and a couple of takeaways:
- Gameplay and visuals are as good as ever and improved upon new order. It's Ay Okay! 👌
- story was just bonkers like the new order but they took it up a couple of notches here ( and perhaps went a tiny bit overboard at times).
- Speaking of the story, it was a nice little journey. It feels like uncharted (bear with me) in that the journey was really fun but looking back, it doesnt really feel like you accomplished much.
- I had a trophy glitch on me :/ (collect one of each collectible). Hopefully it won't glitch on my second playthrough...
- Less BJ monologues to go this time around :/.
- The maps I got to visit were really cool but I felt that New order had better map variety.
- I played on normal difficulty on my first playthrough and I kinda regret it as I barely died during my run. Something like 7-10 times and most of them were me taking it slow, taking in the environment/ ruins and also searching for collectibles. I feel like I should've started on I am death incarnate but I wouldn't mind a second playthrough.
- Finally, I likely won't go for mein Leben. I'm going to do clean-up then do "I am death incarnate" difficulty and by then I'll have a clearer picture of whether I should try mein Leben or not. But right now in my current state of mind I doubt it.
And that's all for now :).

@PooPooBlast Yea difficulty trophies don't stack up, what makes it worse is you have to get S ranks on the hardest difficulty (every difficulty except 1) where you die in one hit, but the enemies do not.
The New Order and The Old Blood I highly recommend. The challenges in The Old Blood aren’t too badZ
1) Yeah that’s what I meant, she figured BJ was one of them.
2) I completely understand if the content is sensitive to someone, particularly Germans because this is a part of history that they greatly shun. I appreciate games taking the alternate timeline approach, The Order: 1886 did it, so has this game.
What I’m saying is the story is a mixed bag, and it gets too political at times, which I tend to see more often with modern AAA games. Going by gameplay, you’re in a power suit that enables you to run and jump but you’re limited to 50 health. You can overcharge like in the previous games, but that is temporary and because of the way the game is, you’re more tempted to go the stealth approach.
3) Doesn’t mean someone can’t share a negative opinion about it.
Wolfenstein II was a bit more meh for me. Has nothing to do with Mein Leben.
4) Fair enough.
@Spaz I can only comment based on my normal playthrough but the entire time I was playing with 50 health, I was dual wielding and going gung-ho on everybody. Didn't feel i was hindered that much. By the time you
get your new body, you would've already upgraded a bunch of weapons, gotten some benefits from perks, and you get to unlock a contraption one of which lets you permanently overcharge your health and it'll only start to deflate if you take damage.
Overall I really liked this game but I think new order was better. I put 2 before new order but after the old blood imo.
Lol! I don't even have a PC to begin with. I just own a laptop for university and work which I doubt would be able to run the game. But still though I'd be down for a Mirror's edge remaster. I never once felt that I was held back because of a controller. Plus it'll give me an excuse to replay it when there's another 100% to achieve.
So.. for some reason I had this quote stuck in my head so I decided to make a compilation out of it from the videos I captured over the years.
Was finally able to put some more time in Wolfenstein II and man the gunplay is as good as ever. It's really satisfying and watching gameplay doesn't do it justice. Gunning through hordes of enemies while dual wielding, chopping and blowing off limbs feels soo satisfying all while listening to the badass music and hearing BJ's thoughtful monologues every now and then .
~ 5 hrs in and I can say, I have no idea why this game reviewed badly... Graphics and framerate are top notch as well. My only criticism is that the game switches tones constantly from serious to "fudge yea let's kill Nazis" / WTF moments in a snap which could feel outta place sometimes. The original did those transitions better imo.

Oops! Looked at the reviews for Wolfenstein II and they definitely did not review badly at all, you're right.
Though I meant in my head that more people preferred the new order and old blood which made it seem as if New colossus was bad.
And as for youngblood, yea... That one tanked hard.. BUTTTT.. I'm stupid and still went ahead and bought it anyway because from gameplay videos, it looked great lol. I got it for $27.50 CAD physical and I can probably sell it for $10 once I'm done with it so $17-20 for that game is not bad at all for me.
@PooPooBlast oof but that still wasn't full price for it, at least.
Oh lol I almost never pay full price for a game just because I always have stuff to play at that time but the only game I ever payed full price was judgment and to me that was worth it. Got almost 90 hours of play time on it.
And haha I like how you said oof. I mean .. how bad can it be right? 😂 Right? 😅 Right?! 😭
Only time will tell.
