I’ve had a fairly full plate of commitments today, so I ended up trying a few things just to make sure I got an achievement. The first thing was pushing through some levels of Halo: Spartan Strike on iOS but there’s only so many minutes in a lunch break. Then I moved onto Age of Empires: Castle Siege but unless I wanted to burn through (or buy) some gold, I was a fair way off earning an achievement. It was an option to keep up my sleeve if I ended up in bed with nothing. But as chance would have it, I ended up having a fairly good session on Wildlands and successfully killed the first bosses: Yuri and Polito.
I’m not sure if I’ve missed something along the way but once I finished that mission there was no more ‘story’ to seek out. There are still many names on the cartel organisation chart to work through, but they all have the targets ‘locked’, which means that their respective missions have also been hidden away from me. I don’t know if I need to do more side missions, or do something else to trigger progress, so I just played around for a bit longer – going for a ride in a jet boat, stealing much nicer helicopters than the little bird I’ve been flying around and just generally causing mischief.
The more I play Wildlands the more I have fun with it. It’s like a real-world Just Cause, except without the grapple hook and ability to defy gravity, economics and human physical/mental capacity. It is graphically quite nice, and I’m even starting to get used to the helicopters. For the AU$39 I was able to get it for – the price was well worth it.
At this stage, I think I’ll jump back into Wildlands over the weekend. There’s some other great options for games this week on account of Games with Gold and Game Pass, so there’s enough ‘entry’ achievements to keep me going in the meantime!
