Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut • Find the Fin’s poster • 5G • 17.57% of gamers unlocked this
If you’re an avid gamer, you’ve probably seen the meme that goes around the Internet mocking someone with an extensive game library and ‘nothing to play.’ I feel like that sometimes, but I can usually find something to fill the void that I’m happy with and willing to give a go to for as long and as much as I can take at any given time.
Tonight, however, I really struggled.
I started off with a spot of The Division, moved onto some Call of Duty and then finally landed on Wasteland 2 as an opportunity to perhaps grab a quick introductory or tutorial achievement to round out the day and then maybe ‘hit the hay’. Wasteland 2 had other ideas.
There’s a not-insignificant chance that, had this achievement not popped, I would be reporting on another Telltale game right now. It’s well after 10pm, I’m tired and I just needed to get something over the line – but nonetheless I’m a bit happy that I got something just so that there is a run on the board, or a record on my Xbox profile, of what I’ve done or been doing.
In other words, I can prove that I’ve done it so I never have to do it again.
I stumbled across the poster in question in one of the early missions purely by accident. Despite having a reasonably sized TV, the writing and interaction with Wasteland 2 is absolutely not tailored for the console experience, and so the overwhelming amount of reading kind of just makes you tired and irritable. With that in mind, you kind of end up ‘clicking’ on everything to see if you can work out how to progress the story.
I’ll just come out and say it: this isn’t a game for me. It’s pace is slow, the graphics feel underwhelming and the UI/X leaves quite a bit to be desired. I’m glad I got it on Game Pass to save a few bucks!
I recommend everyone do the same thing!
