Game Diary: A Mini Update

It's been a few weeks since I last posted an update, so I just wanted to pop on and bring you all up to date with what's going on with the blog and RMGB TV.  Firstly, the second season of Covertape Chaos is now in full swing, with the third episode dropping today!  A new one will be going live every fortnight, up until we get to episode 24, when it will go on another break.  The tapes I've played for this season so far have been a lot of fun, with some really smart games like Hacker II and Terror of the Deep to enjoy.

I've also recently been doing a few mini unboxing videos, because 365games.co.uk have had an offer where you can buy 10 random unboxed DVD's of a given certificate for £10.  I've got some decent (and not so decent) movies this way, and now I'm in the process of watching some of them.  I have on occaision posted some film reviews here on the blog in the past, but I didn't want to overdo it as it is a gaming site first and foremost, after all.  Maybe I will wait until I have watched around half a dozen movies and then do one big post with mini reviews of each.  I have a few more unboxings coming up, for the Zbox Gamer Edition and a Mystery Zbox that was given away free as part of an offer Zavvi were doing.  If they ever turn up, that is.  Then there's my pick ups video - I have quite a large pile of games that I've acquired since Christmas, so I would like to show you all what I've got.  This might go up next Tuesday.

Next up, I played and completed Quantum Break in its entirety, and do intend to review it very soon.  That might not be up this week - we'll see how things go.  I am also playing through the back half of The Division, attempting to get to level 30 and to the end game content.  I have really enjoyed The Division - it's quite surprising how much fun it has been, actually. In the handheld arena, I am about 10 hours in to Bravely Second: End Layer on the 3DS and I am loving it.  I loved the original game as well, for the most part - until the notorious stretch of repetitive gameplay towards the end of the story.  Apparently Square Enix have rectified this for the sequel, so I am looking forward to gradually making my way through the game.

Lastly, I have several new series in the works for the YouTube Channel - the first episode of Advance Warning, which will be GBA reviews, has already been uploaded, and I have more on the way.  Besides that, I also want to start a series that highlights what I consider to be classics from the previous generation that everybody should play.  To that effect, I am about 8 hours into Darksiders on the Xbox 360.   Other games that will most likely be part of season one of this series include Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed II, Gears of War, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Enslaved: Journey to the West and Red Dead Redemption.  Not sure when the series will start yet - probably when I've got three episodes ready to go.  As for PS2 Tuesdays, that will be back as well although I don't know exactly when yet.  It's hard to find the time to play all of these different games!  Thanks for reading this mini update, and for sticking with the blog.  There will be another video next Tuesday, and hopefully another post fairly soon as well.  In the meantime, take care!
