Four in February

posted by Darth Marsden on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users

I know people don't like me linking to Kotaku, but there's an interesting post there about a 'Four in February' initiative. Here's the page link

In short, the idea behind 'Four in February' is to finish four games in February.

...and that's it.

It's basically just a simple drive to get people to finish four games they've been meaning to get round to. No actual rules, just pick four games and do your damnedest to finish them all.

I've already picked my four, so I'll list 'em here.

- Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary Edition (XBox 360 - never got past the Library in the original version, so it'll be interesting to see if I can do it this time)
- Fable: The Lost Chapters (on Steam, since I picked it up and promptly did nothing with it)
- Ratchet & Clank 3 (from the PS3 trilogy - despite finishing the PS2 version I never got round to the PS3 one despite it being the best of the trilogy)
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Steam again. HATED this game first time round, but I want to see how hilariously bad the story is).

And if I finish all four, I'll celebrate by playing The Force Unleashed II. *shudder*

So yeah, that's Four in February. Anyone else feel like joining in?

  • Ok, after much consideration I have decided to swap out one of my choices as I just can't pull my self together to continue with it.

    Serious Sam 3: BFE - Finished
    DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue - Abandoned
    Half-life 2: Episode 1 - Finished
    Trine 2 - In Progress
    Half-life 2: Episode 2 - In Progress

  • Well i've beaten all 8 worlds and all 8 special worlds in Mario 3D Land. I have not gotten the 5 star save file but i have beaten all the normal worlds and all the special worlds and i've collected all the star coins so i'm guessing the game is beaten which means....

    Madagascar-Completed!
    Gravity Rush-Completed!
    Tales of Monkey Island-Completed!
    Super Mario 3D Land-Completed!

    Well i didn't beat any games on my first list but after some changes i finally picked 4 games and beat them :)

  • Complete:

    Gravity Bone
    Machinarium
    Walking Dead Episode 2

  • Finally finished On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 1. Having an external mouse hooked up to my laptop definitely helped during the final boss fight. It's been ages since I started the game after getting it in the Telltale Adventure Bundle, so it was nice to finally complete it. Looking forward to playing Episode 2, but I'll try to finish a few more games first, before starting anything new.

  • Well, I guess I've technically reached 4:

    Gravity Bone
    Machinarium
    Walking Dead Episode 2
    Samorost

    Now, only one of these is a true, full game. Gravity Bone is a free 15 minute long game that is worth your time (plays with spy tropes and "games as art" etc.). Choosing one episode of Walking Dead is questionable but I think ultimately defensible. Samorost is another free game, this one browser-based. It's by the Machinarium people. It's pretty awesome, a 10 minute long adventure game with phenomenal music and sound. Again, worth your time.

    So I did 4. Sort of.

    Actually Beat (pun intended) The World Ends With You. Dayum, that was fun. Cave and TWD, those I could beat.

  • Well, this is unexpected. In the last 24 hours, I've started and finished a game that I didn't remember I had, knew nothing about, and didn't expect to be playing anytime soon. And it was a lot of fun.

    I just beat Radiant.

  • Well, I'm never going to get The Force Unleashed finished, mostly because I just didn't enjoy it at all. So I'll swap in Hamlet or the Last Game Without MMORPG Features, Shaders or Product Placement.

    - Fable: The Lost Chapter - Abandoned
    - Hamlet or The Last Game Without MMORPG Features, Shaders or Product Placement - Completed!
    - Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - Completed!
    - Lego Lord of the Rings - Completed!
    - Ratchet & Clank 3 - Completed!
    - Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Abandoned

    And with that, I'm done! Phew.

    I still haven't finished Quest for Glory I and don't think I will by the end of the month (it was quite ambitious to think I'd get both QfG I and II done anyway), so I've decided to swap out Larry 6 for it. I'm working on that now.
