Today (13 Augest 2019)
11 Months ago (16 September 2018)
Earliest snapshot I can find of my profile (15 August 2017 to be exact)
Should probably wait so its 12 months but I wanted to post it now.
This past year I embraced marking a much higher percentage of games as "wont play"
If I continue at my current gaming rate I should beat my backlog by next year... \o/
once that happens I'll remove the restrictions I've imposed on myself (and let me buy games for myself on steam/non bundled)
I'll still be working on going back to some of the stuff I've dropped and trying to complete stuff I've beaten but it will be a glorious time.
Bendy is a horror game with a unique and well done art style. It does a good job of creating a creepy atmosphere with unsettling points (every time you leave and come back a new cutout appears for example) or twisted cartoons and every time you see shadows start to curl and gather you know to hide somewhere and hope you don't get found.
However the game is overly fond of tedius mechanics...80% of it is fetch quests with some of them get through area x to object y and bring it back then return to y and get a second copy then bring it back then return to object y and come back to the point where you've mapped out the path between the start and the destination and can avoid most monsters.
Or fetch quests in mazes that leave you searching around and around unstil you finally find the last hidden object down path xyz.
I still liked it but in comparison to say soma (a horror game I really liked) I found it lacking.
Moonlighter was nothing special yet it managed to sync so much of my time. the gameplay loop of fighting and looting then switching to a shop and melo selling was the right kind of addictive. Even though the combat wasn't the best in comparison to straight combat oriented roguelikes (binding of issac, dead cells etc) and even though the selling wasn't as complex as straight management marketing games the combination was pleasant and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Other games I beat this past month
Nurse Love Addiction: is a cute yuri vn about nursing school. The story is well written although after a few hours I started losing some of my intrest and just skipped through to get the last endings.
Portal 2: I start portal years ago and played through all the co-op content as well as a bunch of the single player campaign however its only recently that I finally went back and finished it.- real fun co op and while some part of me liked portal 1 better its defenitly a really good game.
Kathy Rain: free (for a time) point and click game that was funner than I thought it would be.
The Darkside Detective: (played most of it months ago offline with sis only recently played the last 2 chapters) This game has some amazing humor and asthetic I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone with a modicum of humor and a slight enjoyment of P&C games.
60 Parsecs!: Not at all what I thought it was 90% of 60 Parsecs is a chose your own adventure story/randomized choice based story. Defenitly going back and trying some more endings some time.
