Golf Dishonored

I finished up what I want to play in Golf with Your Friends and then dug into Dishonored 2 for a while. 

Golf with Your Friends: Mark and I played through the rest of the courses online, then a few special modes and finally one wacky achievement. I stopped there, but he's still playing trying to get par or better on the Forest course. I came close once to getting par on a course but most of the time I was 10 over or more. 

We finished all the courses. The last one was a Worms themed level. I liked that one but it was still crazy complex. You get a tiny jetpack for your ball and have to fly through hoops between sections of the course.I get minigolf is supposed to have obstacals, but sheesh, there are a lot of them on some holes. 

We played the backetball and hockey themed modes. For basketball you can make your ball jump into a net instead of a hole. For hockey you get a puck and have to beat a goalie at the end of the course. I liked hockey best. 

Finally a strange achievement within practice mode. There is a gingerbread man hiding in a barrel. If you can jump your ball to the plateau he is on, and get eaten by him, you get an achievement. I had to look it up because I never would have figured it out on my own. I searched the first course once before I looked it up and had no idea what to do. 

The game was fun, but I'm not replaying those courses. I had to fight the camera many times just to see the whole course so I would know where to go. 

Dishonored 2: As I suspected, it's mostly about stealth. You don't have to, they say, but you have to. Fight a guy and soon there are a half dozen of them there and you can't do anything but run. That's what I basically did in the first city to get to the boat and escape.

The world is very detailed and interesting. I loved exploring it for coins I needed for the Game Pass quest. Fighting is actually very good, but you have to pick your spots carefully or get overwelmed. Stealth isn't my thing. I enjoyed the few hours I put into it. I don't need any more. 

I have some new plans for Wizardry, so I may return to it tomorrow, but it's near the end of the month and I will soon switch to my June plan, which is to play as many SNES and Genesis games as I can.

Dishonored 2 was not my thing. I sent it back to GameFly pretty quickly. One of these days I'll just accept I won't like something just cause everyone else does.

A very beautiful game though. I'd like to turn it into a walking simulator with a mystery to solve.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't even into its art style. Granted, I played it at a hotel one night mainly (weird situation) and who knows? Maybe it was the screen. But I think my laptop screen is pretty high end and never really loved watching videos of it, so .... like I said, I think it is just not for me.

I've always wanted to check out the Dishonored games. The world seems interesting.

The world is super interesting. I guess, steampunk? It's like The Order 1886 a bit. It's definitely 19th century with some weird tech and magic.
