Report #383: Road 96

Life of Daerphen Challenge Year 2021

Was very happy to see this game in the Humble Bundle Choice. Had this on my wishlist.
Its a mix between a story driven telltale like adventure and rogue like. Basically there is one overarching story and you will play several kids that travel to the border to escape. With each main character you have some scenes to get to know the story better and better. You even get some skills to make some situation later easier than they would have. Also makes NG+ very very easy.
Took me 1.5 playthroughs as I missed 2 story achievements and the collectibles.


First post! Still kind of getting the feel for everything, so I’m starting with an overall August wrap-up. I’d say hopefully I’ll start updating on a weekly basis, but I just picked up Baldur’s Gate 3 and am sinking all available time into that. So maybe I’ll start weekly updates at the end of October?

Like mainlining espresso -- heart-rate shoots through the roof trying to balance everything, but you don't realize that it makes you feel bad until you're coming down off the high. Luckily, you can turn aspects off to slow the pace down if you want (immediately turn off dust storms after you get the achievement, for instance).

Very fun little gem; a virtual tabletop experience that I would actually love to have in physical form. Deceptively simple with a lot of hidden depth and strategy, though nothing that you wouldn't be able to figure out after one or two runs.

Cute, but short and not really the puzzle game that it purports to be. More of an extremely low-stakes VN. Inoffensive, but nothing of real note beyond that.

Cute, but not super challenging. Might go back to finish up one day, but officially on the back-burner.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

Had this on the docket for a long time, but only started playing it as holdover until I could pick up BG 3. It'll be a minute before I go back to this now that I do have BG 3, but I will eventually return since I was enjoying my time.

Third week of September

I need another vacation.

Current balance of acquired - completed games: 104 - 82 = -22 (haven’t actually gotten 4 new games, but I apparently did the math wrong somewhere along the way).

Completed SG wins

Lost Dream: Stars
Playtime: 28 minutes

Review: It is a very short walking sim where you play as a fox and its pretty bad. The good: lovely graphics, lovely music. The bad: the scenery just repeats over and over, each section of the game has worse visual effects, there is pretty bad pop-in of the grass, there is no save, random invisible walls, height from where you look around is way too low and it is motion sickness inducing, Linux version doesn't work but Proton does.

For Screenshot Sunday #21 I’ll share one of my favorite shots this year. It came from Resident Evil 4 Remake which I bought on day 1. Money well spent, even if the new edgy Leon look and vibe weren’t to my liking. The game doesn’t really do much new to revamp the Remake gameplay formula, but stealth is now possible. And this shot best captures that. I really enjoyed being a sneaky slav and stabbing unaware ganados. Blood was in the air that night.

Side note

Friend sent me a teary message that rabbit died with a link to a facebook fanpage. I get a bit confused, as she did not have the facebook page for her rabbit, so I did not know if it’s yet another scam. Turned out she was sad as some “famous” rabbit from the internet died. “The only rabbit that could play basketball” she said. I went to yt to look for it, and saw video of IMO rather poor Ameraca God Talent performance of guy trying to make the rabbit do stuff, and rabbit just didn’t. If you compare it to what people training dogs or cats can achieve…

And then (following yt rabbit hole) I went to videos that show dog agility competition, and that is a good content. Speed, grace, trust to the person who trains them. Not a rabbit that can’t understand what to do next. Rats are more intelligent, and can be as much cuddly as rabbits are.

A great conclusion to the series on DS. The story is entertaining but a little convoluted at times. The new characters are very funny and the puzzles maintain the high quality the series is known for.

If you're into 2D pixel art RPGs, this one is a must-play. The story and combat are really complex and engaging, the art is spot-on and there are many secrets to find. Yet, it's a tad overwhelming and I was glad when the credits finally rolled.

A beautiful game set near my home region, Dordogne will appeal to warm-hearted folks. If you're a little nostalgic of your childhood and miss the people who were around at that time, you'll easily connect with this game.

Ghost Files 2: Memory of a Crime

HOGs are usually far-fetched and ridiculous. This one surprisingly isn't so much! I quite enjoyed the simple story and the hidden object scenes and for once, it doesn't inflict stupid puzzles on the player.

Planet of Lana

Maybe I'm not the right audience for this game but I found its appeal very limited. The puzzles aren't particularly original and the wordless story, while nice enough, is just too simplistic.

Just remembered that I am WAY behind with my monthly games got/won/completed, so without further ado…..

Games added in April:

Games added: 29 (1 more than last time)
Games won: 2 (4 fewer than the month before)
Games completed: 3 (Almost 4, I will be there IS completed, I have no idea why the last 2 achievements dont show up, also completed older games)

Well, let me just say that I discovered barter, so a lot of my games are traded from there, a couple of group buys and few bought as birthday gifts for myself :D

As always, are there some games you can recommend?
