aka. End of the year backlog overflow
The end of this weird doomed year is finally here, and I’m glad it’s over, even if 2021 doesn’t much shinier from here. As usual with the holiday season, I got quite a few additions to my backlog, and only managed to beat 3 so it’s a crushing backlog victory. That being said, I’m happy with what I played and I had a really good gaming time. I’ll be back in a few days (hopefully) with my yearly stats report, but until then, I hope you had a good holiday season and I wish you all the best for 2021.
ABC Challenge 2.0 Progress (3/27)Finished this month: 0
Haven's theme was not much my cup of tea as I don't care much about romance. That being said, the gameplay was fun enough for me to play the whole thing. The exploration part consist in gliding around the planet where those space Romeo & Juliet lovers have crashlanded and try to collect things to repair their ship while trying to solve what is going on with the planet itself. It's not gonna be everyone's thing but it's a nice chill game with an amazing soundtrack.
El Hijo was a surprising little stealth indie game wrapped in a gorgeous animated style spaghetti western package. It's non violent, gorgeous but sadly it's not without its defaults when it comes to some approximations in the controls, which can be annoying for a stealth game. That being said, I enjoyed the whole experience despite its flaws and would recommend it at a discounted price.
My biggest chunk of gaming this month if I ignore all the hours put in Animal Crossing. It was a really solid turned based tactics RPG and I loved every bit of it. It had a sweet and sour taste for me as it's based on a super old french audio humour adventure (circa 2000s) which I use to love back then. Well turns out that kind of humour hasn't aged well and the original french dubbing is painful to endure. That being said, the english dubbing is much superior and since I played the game that way, I really had a great time. Recommended for tactics fans who don't take themselves too seriously.
