Hi new member here, glad to be part of this group! Here’s a couple of games I beat today:

Update #1: February 9th 2019

Evoland (Part of Evoland Legendary Edition)

Evoland (Part of Evoland Legendary Edition)

5/10
3.9 hours
15 of 65 achievements

Got this for free because I own Evoland 2. The idea of a game letting you play through different generations of RPGs sounded pretty cool at first but it ended up feeling a little bit flat. Heard the sequel was a lot better in that regard, so I might jump into that one later this month.

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise

6.5/10
4.7 hours
5 of 12 achievements

Bought this and a couple of other games on Fanatical earlier this month. I had a pretty great time with this. Difficulty was all over the place in some levels, especially the ones where you are poisoned and have to fight a ton of enemies.

STAR WARS™ - The Force Unleashed™ Ultimate Sith Edition

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition

7/10
7.4 hours
no achievements

I didn’t like this game at first because of the horrible M/KB controls but I ended up really liking it when I switched to my controller. There was one frustrating bit where you have to pull down a Star Destroyer but other than that I had a blast!

Welcome to the club! Hope you have a good time killing your backlogs.

Huh, didn’t notice they made a remastered version of Evoland. I played the first one last year. Despite being a neat idea, the game becomes bland towards the middle of the game onwards. I haven’t touched the second one thanks to it.

Thank you!

Yeah it came out last Thursday, it’s more of a compilation of the original Evoland and Evoland 2 and not a remaster. No extra added features though.

Just a compilation? I have to say it’s pretty unusual for a game on Steam to be removed so a compilation can be released. It’s a pretty neat gesture from the devs I guess.

Welcome! Have fun exterminating that backlog :D

Thank you, I will!

Welcome to BLAEO! (And thanks for pointing out you got that legendary evoland for free by owning Evoland 2, I didn’t realize it was added to my library! I’ll finally be able to play the first evoland! And yes, Evoland 2 is really cool, well worth playing.)

Spamlynguist

Thank you!

Yeah I saw it popped up in my library on Friday and thought it was pretty cool that Evoland 2 owners received it for free.

Welcome to BLAEO! Nice update :)

I remember feeling very similar about the controls of The Force Unleashed. And yes, ugh, the Star Destroyer… ugh… Do you plan to play the sequel? I enjoyed it better than the first part it’s very short though!

Spamlynguist

Thank you!

I do plan on playing the sequel! Gotta pick it up for cheap sometime later this year.

Welcome to Backlog Assassins! I hope you enjoy the games you remove from your backlog c:

Thanks to your update, I finally figured out where that new +1 in my library came from - I also got the Evoland Legendary Edition because I had Evoland 2. I don’t love it when games offer you duplicate versions - it just clutters things up. I moved Evoland 2 to ‘won’t play’ and will play the Legendary Edition instead.

Thank you!
