I ended up getting all four Sly Cooper games (the Sly Collection and the latest addition Thieves in Time).
When my boyfriend *mattwilson83
was last over here, he was on a mission at some point while over here to get the Sly Cooper game, through the recommendation of our good 'ol friend *GuardianOfTheFlame
. I had heard of the series beforehand, but only heard fleeting things about it and hadn't thought much about it, since. My boyfriend got the Sly Collection of all three games for the PS3 and I watched him play the whole first game on my PS3, while he was still here. He began the second one, but I don't think he ever finished it before he had to return home? Not sure. Ever since I saw the premise through the first game, I had to admit I was intrigued. That, and Sly's character, by being a suave one towards the hotheaded Carmelita Fox. The ending of the first game between the two was pretty funny. xD
For awhile now, I always told Matt that I would look into getting the games, but hold off. Eventually, I repeated the same thing but said: "You know, they would be a great Christmas gift idea from my parents."
Ended up getting them by earlier and the middle of this week. Yeah, I did not do well...
Curiosity of the games and story got the best of me (even though I've gotten too curious and spoiled SOME elements say from the second and fourth games. Yeah, I sometimes spoil myself. It's never bothered me or felt like it's ruined for me, though. I'm weird like that, but I still wanted to play through all four games more than ever and get the effect of all four games and their stories tied together).
So, I finished the first game by a day, if not barely over that (Conquered three levels the first evening/late evening, and finished the fourth and fifth levels off and on earlier today and this evening).
I'm currently about to start the third episode of Sly 2: Band of Thieves, having played through the whole first two episodes, but it's pretty late over here and I had to stop for the night. Wished I could have gotten through the next episode, at least (Mz. Ruby was a total bitch with her "Triangle, triangle, triangle~ Circle, triangle, square ~" game along with my controller being finicky unless I mashed the buttons like a madman. And Clockwerk was just being a douchebag).
If my game playing thus far hasn't given the impression yet, yes - I feel stupid for not having played this series sooner. Why is it addicting?? O.o;;
I have this wandering feeling that I'm probably going to try and doodle or develop my own Sly Cooper character(s). Somehow, I just know I probably will.
