Just wanted to write a little update on my “progress” from the past month. When it comes to Steam, I’ve only been able to finish 2 of my SG wins: Epistory - Typing Chronicles and Downfall.
Epistory turned out to be a truly adorable and incredibly relaxing experience, as you’d expect from a game where you ride a giant fox. I♥v♥I I was playing it when not-so-fun stuff was happening in my life and the beauty and innocence of this little game helped me cheer up a tiny bit.
Downfall on the other hand was anything but cheerful and fun. The artstyle and atmosphere is fairly similar to the ones in The Cat Lady, but the way the storytelling acts is severly different. In Cat Lady you sometimes get this tiny sense of accomplishment whereas in Downfall there’s only darkness, despair and forcing yourself further down the rabbit hole. It’s a depressing, dark (but never in the edgy way) and heavily dreamlike experience that you will not forget easily.
Oh, and speaking of The Cat Lady, I won’t be touching this game again after getting the “neutral” ending in Downfall (can’t even begin to imagine how the bad ending looks like, brrr)…
As for my console stuff, I’ve decided to make good use of my new acquisition, a PS2, and play Persona 4. Long story short, it’s my new gaming obsession, I adore absolutely everything about it and I’ve quickly purchased 3 other SMT games and will be preordering P5 shortly. I^v^I
A console game that I’ve finished only yesterday (Halloween, heh), but definitely didn’t adore everything about it was Batman: Arkham Knight. Driving sections and tank battles started to get rather repetetive after a while, boss fights were kinda pathetic and I had to look up the ending on youtube because of a flawless design choice. I-v-I On the other hand, I loved every single moment with Mr. J and kinda felt like dear ol Harley while playing the game just hoping for the Joker to comment on every single one of my actions. Predator stuff was fun, combat same as in other Arkham games (which I enjoyed), gliding around Gotham felt really smooth, most side missions were rather neat and Riddler was, of course, garbage. So yeah, overall mixed opinion, but leaning more forward to positive rather than negative.
So yeah, that’s sadly all for October. I^v^I
