Bully For Me
Saturday was a school work day, with two group meetings early in the day. Once I got home, however, I found a copy of Rockstar’s latest, Bully, waiting for me.
I stayed up until 2AM playing it.
The game is very accessible, but they way they’ve structured the game in several places serves to keep the tension up. You’re basically in perpetual trouble, late to class, out past curfew, etc. When you’re trouble meter is on the rise, you have to avoid the prefects or you’ll be busted on the spot (though you learn ways out of that). The more trouble you’re in, the more likely you are to get a one-way ticket to “The Head’s” office.
The best part of the game is the humor. The game is literally laugh out loud funny at times, whether from the salacious bits of being the little mack daddy on campus, or the idea of helping out your drunken English teacher. The style and humor are baked into the game, and while it’s over the top, it’s no so out there to keep you from buying into this world.
I’m not sure where I’ll find the time, with class, work, and a leadership conference this weekend, but I really want to finish the game before the end of the month. I want to try out Final Fantasy XII before Wii drops in mid-November.
