Newbie Blogger Initiative and Game Updates

So, today begins the Newbie Blogger Initiative 2015. It is a month long project to try and encourage people to become a blogger.  There are mentors available and it seems like it will be a great experience.  I am going to check it out and try to post daily to get back into the swing of blogging.


Beyond that I have been getting back into Bioshock 2.  This game, while not as fun as Bioshock 1, is very good, aside from the occasional crashes on the PC version.  I got past an Adam gather that was pretty difficult and made me put down the game for a few months.  I want to finish this before I start my new job on May 13.


I also started getting into The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD. I am normally not a fan of 3D Zeldas. The only two that I have finished are Link Between Worlds and Link’s Awakening.  I have started Ocarina several times and never finished Twilight Princess.  Windwaker is good though.  It took me a while to beat the floating face boss with the bow and arrow. Once I got past that boss, things have been progressing well.


To continue the Zelda experience, I got a used copy of Majora’s Mask for 3DS yesterday.  I started it this morning and the first thing to stand out to me was how well it ran and felt on the 3DS.


Lastly, I am close to finishing Shovel Knight.  What a game this has been.  I will talk more about it when I do a review, but I did learn something.  If you are playing with Vsync on, you need to turn it off for the best experience.  I didn’t know it but I was playing in slow motion.  The latest Nvidia driver really made that obvious.
