Enhanced BLAEO Update
Just wanted to let you guys know that there is a new Enhanced BLAEO update, because you’ll probably have to update manually (click here). From v3.1.0 up, updates should be automatic.
Here’s what changed in this version:
- Use BLAEO itself to sync owned games, instead of using the Steam API
- Fix Theme List Checker for users who do not have a SteamGifts account
- Fix bugs in Post Generator

On another note, I should resume my ABC Challenge or else I won’t make it in time :X
Beaten: The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker
Playing this over skype was the correct decision. Definitely more fun with company!

I waited too long to write something about this. Honestly, I think this type of game isn't for me. Certainly the art is charming, but I don't know why I'm downloading it as a game instead of watching a video or animated slides. A Raven Monologue at least had a moment that was justifiably interactive, but this didn't seem to take advantge of the medium at all.
Challenge Me! game and SG win. If this taught me anything, it's that I have no idea how to play most games correctly. It's a visual novel set in the 60s. You play as a 10 year old babysitting a younger child named Kimmy. Kimmy doesn't have friends, so you take her around to play with other kids. You buy toys from the corner store and have to choose the right options when teaching the rules to the kids. Each character has their own story, but you won't have time to play with everyone everyday. It's sort of a bittersweet coming of age story that I think is pretty good.
7 Grand Steps, Step 1: What Ancients Begat
Challenge Me! game. Unfortunately I had to shelve this. Not because it's a terrible game, but I feel it takes too long doing the same thing repeatedly. Then I automatically died and lost hours of "progress." I just can't even. The fact I don't want to keep playing is arguably even part of the point of the game, in which, much like life, you play the mechanics of the game correctly and do everything right, but can still lose randomly. That said, there is an initial appeal and good concept under the long tedium. It's relatively easy to get into with a very brief tutorial--a lot of things are left for you to figure out, which is kind of bad, yet that, too, goes along with the concept. There is some light management system if you reach the highest social class, but doing so only extends the length of doing the same things by hours. If I ever picked it up again, I don't think I would bother rising from subsistence farmer.

Report #204: Little Nightmares
Just finished my revisit of Little Nightmares. When I was playing it a long time ago, I was just playing through the main story once. Missed a lot of collectibles and didn't own the season pass. After buying the season pass during Christmas sale I motivated myself, to play the main story again with all collectibles, finished the three DLCs and even finished the speedrun without dying. Pretty hard that last part.
Now I can archive the game as 100% perfect game

Dad Tip #66 - It’s okay if you don’t come in first, just make sure you have health insurance
Okay its not actually mini but im classing it as that since its not my actual report, so read the warning below to know what to expect
Don’t read if you aren’t prepared for a long negative rant
Typing this up as a draft I went to send but actually went past the 2k character limit, so screw it. I’m happy with what I said, I don’t really need to edit it later so here it is
it’s so nice to play a hog where the main character is a malignant sociopath who destroys the lives of all who have the misfortune to cross her path!
i would like it to be known that i had entirely forgotten that this game was even in my library until i was sorting everything here on BLAEO. i was all “dafuq is this thing” and then “oh, a hog!” and now i have a migraine and regret everything. boooooo.
on one hand, this is your usual HOG game– something horrible happens (your fiance is kidnapped) so you set out to right the wrong done unto you (save fiance, do some archeology on the way there). you have to squint and prod your way through a few bleached out hidden object scenes and uninspired puzzles, get the magnet on a string to fish out a key, etc etc etc. it’s all very mundane and nothing to write home about.
on the other hand, the main character steals hotel reservations and makes receptionists lose their jobs without an ounce of remorse. she exhibits no emotion when a family member of hers is killed. she finds her fiance tied to a chair in a dingy warehouse and goes “oh i’ll saunter back three scenes to rummage through a skip for something sharp!” and takes her damn time about it.
Lost Civilization is basically going through the motions. you have all these elements that are always found in these games so the dev i suppose felt obligated to include them, but they didn’t bother patching them together in a cohesive way. the end result was half irritation (the voice acting is really freaking bad, okay) and half reluctant amusement towards this so-called heroine who callously wrecks innocent civilians with a series of well-placed phone calls.
i’d say play it for the lulz but the HOG scenes gave me a headache, so i suggest you avoid avoid avoid simply to save yourself the literal pain.
