aka. Frustration and Status Quo
Hello fellow assassins, I can’t believe December is finally here and this year of doom is almost over. I hope you’re all doing well considering the situation.
Admittedly, I didn’t play much this month of anything but Animal Crossing, mainly because I got very frustrated by losing my save files on not one but TWO frickin’ games at the beginning of the month. First Yakuza, and then Grounded both fucked up my saves and it made me not wanna play anything much. At least, I didn’t add more games to the backlog that I finished, so that’s something, right? These last few days I seem to have gone back to playing, so there is hope for the last month of the year (not that I have any illusion of keeping the backlog tamed in December).
I hope you all stay safe and have a good December. Anything on your radar for the end of year Steam sales?

I knew when I got this game that it would be a mistake, as I would fall back in my Animal Crossing addiction, but at the same time I couldn't resist either. Good timing on my part it happened just a week before my country was on lock down again. At least I got my money worth with this one (and I'm still playing, I just finished the game's "plot" that make the credits roll, but put a lot more hours after that). I can't recommend this game enough if you like relaxing things, even though for some people it's too slow paced and repetitive. To me it's really great and I'm enjoying my time in it.
I can't believe this game has been out for two years and I only heard about it recently. Me and half of the internet, it seems. A friend gave me a copy and enrolled me to go play with him and some of our common friends. I'm not much of a multiplayer person in general (apart from a few exceptions with close friends), but I have to admit it was a lot of fun (mostly I think because of the groups I played with. I haven't tried public games and I have zero intention to). Yes, it has very minimal graphics, yes, the gameplay is more or less always the same, but with the right group of people, this game can be a lot of fun. Weirdly, stabbing your friends or ripping their head off with your bare hands and arguing that you was Green do it is GREAT for team building. And huge thumbs up to the devs for making the game not only super cheap, but even free on mobile AND cross-plateform.
A nice and cozy VN that is quite similar to VA-11 Hall-A (if you loved that one, you'll most likely love this and vice-versa). You play the barista/owner of a coffee shop only open at night, during a few days in the fall of 2020. The gameplay consists of talking with your customers, brew them the hot drinks they ask you for and watch their stories unfold over those few days. There is also an endless challenge mode that only consists on brewing more and more complicated drinks as the time goes. I played it over the past 3 days and it was such a relaxing experience, I absolutely loved it. Thanks again to Kaleith both for the recommendation and the game.
