Prose & Pixels

Prose & Pixels #9: Currently Playing (July 2015)

Prose & Pixels is a feature where I discuss one of my other loves: video games. Sometimes it also combines the two. Here I’ll discuss all sorts of things, whether it’s recommendations, influences or just a good old chat.

Today I wanted to share the games I am currently playing!

Cook, Serve, Delicious!

Cook, Serve, Delicious!

Cook, Serve, Delicious! is possibly the most fun I’ve had whilst simultaneously feeling stressed. It’s a restaurant management sim, and brands itself as ‘hardcore’. It pretty much involves serving customers food and drink, whilst keeping your restaurant clean and tidy, working your way up from a greasy spoon to a five star restaurant. You must pass safety inspections, you can take part in the ‘Iron Chef’ TV show, date other chefs and more. Frantic button mashing ensues. There is something very, very addictive about it, and I’m now working my way from a four star to five star restaurant.

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3

I really really love open world games, and Far Cry 3 is an amazing one. You play Jason, a young man on holiday with his brothers and their friends, when their skydiving adventure goes horribly wrong. They find themselves on an island where they are taken hostage by pirates. Jason manages to escape the camp, and is rescued by a group of people known as the Rakyat. They begin to teach him the path of the warrior, and he sets out to rescue each of his friends from the pirates. Whilst the main storyline sees you rescuing everyone, there are so many different sidequests and places to explore. It’s a huge tropical island, with not only dangerous people but also animals like tigers and komodo dragons. SUCH an atmospheric game!

Lego Jurassic World

Lego Jurassic World

Yessss, I already bought Lego Jurassic World. It was on sale on Bundle Stars, and I managed to pick it up for only £13. It doesn’t just cover the new film, but all four. I absolutely love the Lego games, so combined with one of my favourite films it is perfect. Plus you can be a dinosaur!
