September 2019 Beaten - Completed & Played Games
So this month i mainly played multiplayer games and i have been having a blast with Brawlhalla. Also I have bought and finished Blasphemous.
So Blasphemous is a pretty good game since i really like metroidvanias and souls like games. Although i don’t think this one is souls like. Only checkpoint system is similiar. Also i first finished the game without using much of the metroidvania elements. So i kind of find that part a little underwhelming. By this i mean you dont have things like “you should get that item to get past here”. They had a different approach. But if you want to explore there are tons of things that you might find useful. Combat is fluid and i like the bosses. But the main point is theme for this game. The world and the desing are so well done. Also executions are so satisfying and i wish there would be more than one animation for them. Game is not that hard especially at later parts. The hard part for me was the language they use. I didn’t understand much of it. So had to use try and learn approach.
August 2019 Beaten - Completed & Played Games
This month I have played some of the most interesting games i have played. Tulpa, The Magical Silence and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice all themed as psychological and then boom Yakuza 0. That game makes you live in that tiny colorful cities as a yakuza. What does a true yakuza do you ask? They buy erotic magazine for children so that children doesnt lose his hope on adults! Yeah hardcore stuff! I have only done half of the optional stuff since it felt overwhelming for me, i will definetly come back later for my bussiness.
So this month’s gem for me is Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. I didn’t expected such a wonderful experience out of the game. Especially when you play with headphones. I played it through xbox game pass beta
Another well recieved game i have beaten was Shovel Knight. I am starting to think i don’t like platformers much. :D It was beautifully done and attention to details in that game shows how much love have put in it. But i didn’t enjoy it as much as i thought i would. Also i enjoyed Specter Knight dlc much much better. But i dropped Plague Knight dlc. If you like old school games it’s definetly for you.
I guess this is the guilt part of the backlog, i didn’t think i would reconsider playing my oldish Steamgifts wins. But since making this list some of them caught my eye. So I have played 3 of them since they were fairly short. Completed 2 of them they were enjoyable but i dropped Secrets of Rætikon. I like that kind of game exploration, nice art and short but for some reason it gives me nausea. FPS games also make me like that but this one was a first. I dropped it because of that in the past. Recently with BLAEO’s encouragement i decided to give it another go. But game was bugged in the last section and with bug it was impossible to finish. It was known bug from 2014 so i didn’t bother. It has been quite some time since i last dropped a game. It was cool, shame.
Sundered is a bit mixed bag for me since i am currently at last boss and i haven’t/couldn’t beat it. Sundered is kinda okay-ish game but i dont really understand what they wanted to with that game. They just throw stuff at you and expect you to survive to finish the game. Not a fan of that design. I don’t think i will try another endings or stuff. It already feels repetitive for me on the first run.
Lastly i am really enjoying Brawlhalla. Hit me up if you want to play some. o/

July 2019 Beaten & Completed Games
I have had free time this month so i finished some games. Every one of them was really good except First Tree; visiuals were okay, everything else was kinda boring but again Crosscode was the real gem. I highly recommend it. Also I finished Demon’s Souls since i learned i can finish it on an emulator.
