ACHIEVEMENT OF THE WEEK – Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty

This week I didn’t get up to must on the game front. Tried out The Division beta starting on Thursday, wrapped up some DLC in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, put some time into Assassin’s Creed Unity and The Swapper (on the Xbox One, see my original PC thoughts: The Swapper), and tried out Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. Basically all over the map.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a 2.5D platformer with an emphasis on puzzles. Its gameplay is 2D but it has a 2.5D art style. We play as Abe, who finds out that the meat processing plant that he works for – that makes delicious snacks – has just introduced a new snack. The problem is the secret ingredient is made from the inhabitants of the planet. His goal is to rescue all the world’s people.

The game is a remake of the original, from 1999 on the Playstation – Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, but remade from the ground up.

I chose this game as the highlight of the week because the other games I played haven’t had any interesting achievements yet, and even though I’ve only play a 1 or 2 levels, the first achievement I got was accidental, even in name.


 

Achievement of the Week – Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty

Oddworld


Opps… – 0G
Fail to observe your surroundings

This achievement (or challenge) happens when you accidentally kill one of the world inhabitant (Mudokons) but pulling a switch that opens a trap door. The door is intended to drop a guard.


 

As I mentioned above, still playing through Assassin’s Creed Unity, and loving the art and visuals. It’s truly an incredibly detailed game. I’ve been plugging away in Grand Theft Auto V on the XOne. They had a 2x bonus weekend, and I failed to connect to a single multiplayer game without someone getting dropped. So that’s been a blast. And I also wrapped up one of the SoM DLCs.
