And now for something completely different: I managed to get about half an hour this evening with Rayman 3, one of this month’s Games with Gold. My, how things have obviously changed – Rayman was apparently not always a sexy cartoon cell-shaded 2D side scroller, instead operating in the league of Crash Bandicoot and Banjo-Kazooie. I don’t know who in Ubisoft decided to make the change when they did, but I thank them for it. I know this game is old, but I don’t think it’s aged particularly well.
I couldn’t see any quick achievements to earn from playing Rayman 3 other than this one tonight, but sure enough, not long after I earned it another progress-related one popped and I wasted what could have been a quick-and-dirty one. Nothing particularly hard about this one. Push a button, take a photo, achievement pop.
So, that brings me to the end of the week. Let’s not bang-on for the sake of hanging on. I have the final episode of The Newsroom to watch!
