First update in a while

So, quite a bit has happened since my last post over a year ago. After last summer I got a new apartment together with my girlfriend, and the week after there was a water leak from the neighbour upstairs. Since we hadn’t moved in yet, it took us over a week to come back and discover half of the apartment covered in water. Well, insurance handled that, but it took 5 months to dry out and refinish the apartment :) When we finally got it back, we decided to redo the rooms not affected by the water leak, so they would match the renovated rooms (new flooring etc). That took us another two months since I did all the work myself and could only work with the apartment one day per week on average. Then we could finally move in, and we went on vacation just two weeks later. When we came back I got a new job (kind of a surprise, I was asked about if I would be available for it, and they wanted me to start the very next week). Skip ahead two months, and we’re in the present. Finally getting settled in, and some staring to get some routine and more time over for playing games. Haven’t really stopped playing games, but not been able to play at the same rate as before. Even if I haven’t posted, I’ve been updating BLAEO and thought I would do a quick summary over finished games since my last post:

Couldve just put pop. Pretty much most people who do a report at this point are in that damn group. We are taking over! Anyway good luck with your picks

Oh and looks like that apartment has been very eventful

Trent

Welcome back, tso! Long time no see, obviously. I’m glad that things seem to be straightened out, and that you were able to get at least some gaming in during your hiatus from BLAEO. I don’t post anymore, but I still read or skim updates, make annoying comments, and keep my lists and progress up-to-date.

ninglor03

Oh gosh, that sounds suuuuuper annoying and exhausting! Glad you got that apartment thing sorted out in the end though. Hope you are feeling by now at home and love the place :)
So how is the new job? You like it?

Uh, you played AC! How did you like that one? I only ever played the first after… uh, the 4th? Not sure anymore rly. But it felt so super clumsy compared to the later games xD Although it was fun meeting Altair in person :]
Good luck with your pop picks!

Lucky Thirteen

Hey, welcome back :)
Those are some cool games you’ve finished. Shadowrun Hongkong is still gathering dust in my library, perhaps it will fit one of the future monthly themes and then I’ll finally play it haha :D
As for the games you intend to play next, I finished Victor Vran quite recently myself and personally I had fun with it. Their take on singleplayer + co-op model was perhaps not the best (things like dyes for your outfit and poses/emotes dropping in singleplayer mode when you’d rather get something useful), but it was a fine game all in all. Have fun! :)

I enjoyed Slime Rancher a lot, so I hope you do too!
And it’s good to hear that your problems with the apartment got solved in the end. Sounds tiring, irritating, and … tiring.
How did you like Firewatch?

Joe

That water leak sounds like a nightmare, glad things are feeling more settled!

I’d also be interested to know what you thought of AC1 having played it recently myself and was left with very mixed feelings… and congrats on beating Furi, I never did manage to beat it, I’ll have to return to give it another attempt.

What a story ! I hope everything is going smoothly and you sent back the water to the neighbor, it’s their after all and you wouldn’t keep something that got somehow lost in your apartment, right ?

godprobe

Wow, that’s a whole lot of happenings! Sounds like things are going mostly swimmingly though (occasionally literally?), so long as nothing irreplaceable was damaged by the water. Hope everything’s settling down a bit for you – unless you’ve been enjoying the adventures, and then I just hope they continue to be relatively harmless!

That’s also a lot of really solid assassinations! Congrats! :)
