I’ve been playing the odd game of World of Tanks on PC, and I thought there might be some connection between the console version and PC. I had hoped that some cross-play might be evident, but considering my PC server (Asia) isn’t even on the console list – that optimism quickly left.
I have to say – the console version isn’t nearly as fun as the PC version. I can’t work out if it’s been scaled-back feature-wise (it doesn’t necessarily seem to be), but the controls seem slow and clunky and there’s not a great deal of love in the graphical detail.
I actually earned an achievement for completing the tutorial before this achievement, something that I thought I’d already done – but it seems like, judging from the achievement list, that I’d actually only played a few campaign missions, and had never completed the main ‘boot camp’ mission. Using that experience (as in XP, not the verb ‘experience’), I was able to buy a few different tanks before I logged off tonight, earning me a lazy little 5G for my effort.
My skim of the achievement list showed me a few other quick achievements that I might be able to pickup over the next few weeks, but by-and-large, the meaty achievements come from playing multiplayer online. I don’t think I’ve got the energy or the inclination to do that – but you never know, stranger things have happened. If anything, I have been finding myself scrolling down my game library list with a blank expression on my face simply convincing myself that there’s got to be something worth playing on there. I suspect an inevitable gaming ‘rut’ is about to hit me – something that I’ve been hearing a lot from friends about lately, and I’ve experienced myself once or twice.
In the meantime – there’s a solid five weeks of gaming to get through before I can allow myself a ‘break’. The end is in sight – I’m going to give this final push a red hot go.
