Welcome back to the old school Aiori’s profile

Old School gamer that likes games of his time and RPG, Strategy and Fighting ones (I play other genres, but depends of the game). Always I am looking for people to play and talk about life. From Galicia (Spain).


Help!! Steam sales are coming!!! Brace yourselves, Gabe is coming!!

I was a little out of plan these days…I´ve finished 2 games more…FIREEEEE!

A NEW NORMALITY: JUNE (AIORI´S 2ND PLAN)

Seeing that May´s plan was useful, this month comes another to fight my backlog. I have less time to play videogames because this month comes with new works, but I will try my best. Here it is:

1ST STEP: Finishing pending Challenge me
I have a game pending of my April´s Challenge me, and 4 of the actual one. I will finish at least the april title, plus probably some of may titles. This is the list:

2ND STEP: Monthly Theme: World Ocean Month
What a nice theme we have this month. 1 of my favourite activities is to go to see the ocean at night, the waves movements and sounds are very relaxing, and some of my favourite sports are swimming and diving. It´s a pity to see how parts of the Atlantic are contaminated so we need to concenciate ourselves to conserve our oceans, they are required for life on Earth. There are some games with some tags related to ocean on steam, and I choose a unfinished one. I don´t remember why I left it, because I have good memories about it, so maybe is the moment to finish it.

3ND STEP: Long term gameS
Lately I was playing Borderlands 2 with a friend from time to time, so I will include it on this list. As I told last month, I am not going to finish these games on June, but they will be a fixure on my list until I finish them.

LAST STEP: My favourite genres
My favourite game genres are the turn-based games (preferably RPG or strategy) and the fighting games, so I include some titles of these genres. The turn-based RPGs have the Roguelike components, so you have to play some runs to get all the content. My priority is finish Dead Age, because I am near of its completion. Then I got Warsaw, which I unlocked for finish 4 games, to play in a different thematic. For the Fighting game genre, I will continue with the one selected on may, Fighting Ex Layer.

AND THAT¨S ALL…for the moment. As always, I will try not to buy new games, and if I buy some (my problem are the bundles xD), I will leave their keys deactivated until I finish some games, I am doing a 4 games finished for 1 new game ratio. Wish me luck,

What do you think? Which are your plans for June?

Stay safe. Greetings from the Atlantic Ocean!

BYE BYE MAY! (Aiori´s 1st report)

Let´s see how was my 1st plan:

Challenge me games
I have a game pending from my April´s Challenge me plus I took another Challenge me on May, and I finished 1 game of the new list. The evolution was:

Game Achievements Actual time
images 16/48 -> 48/48 Completed!! 5h -> 13 h
images 34/78 -> 78/78 Completed!! 8h -> 15 h
images 8/34 -> 8/34 3 h -> 3h
images Viscera clean up 0 - > 2/2 Completed!! Never played -> 6 h

I only play a few minutes of Life is Strange Before the Storm, plus I did not play the rest of May Challenge me games for the moment

Monthly Theme: Think Local
Finished with success. It was a mix between nostalgia and a nice surprise. A game made on my country, Spain, 600 km away from my home.

Game Achievements Actual time
images Never played -> 18/18 Completed!! Never played -> 8 h

Others
I have another games in the plan, but I played them very few, and I don´t have new achievements of Dynasty Warriors 8, my long term game, and I did not start Hard West neither…I am thinking of removing it for this month and try a shorter game maybe. But have some progress in the 2 last remaining games of the plan

Game Achievements Actual time
images 66/77 -> 68/77 47 h -> 54 h
images Never played -> 6/41 Never played -> 1 h

Out of the plan
I played a couple of hours Legend of Keepers Prologue, it´s like a long demo with achievements. Nice game, I will probably buy it in the future.
I played Helltaker for 1 hour, just the final scenario remains to complete the game.
And I played Borderlands 2 with a friend a couple of days. this probably it´s going to be a new long-term game in the next plans.

Added to backlog: 26 games, TERRIBLE!! The 99% of them were free (I bought only 1 game). Developers gave a lot of games because of the quarantine issue, plus it was my birthday on april and I couldn´t celebrate it for the COVID-19 and my grilfriend gave me some games as birthday present when I could see her.

Recommendations of the games that I finished

The Walking Dead Telltale - Of course! Excellent Telltale´s Adventure based on the zombies series. Very recommendable!

D4 - Yes! Very surrealistic adventure, plus it is incompleted because only season 1 is avaliable and there are no plans for the moment to develop the rest, a pity because it finish with a enormous cliffhanger, but I still recommend it.

The Sexy Brutale - Yes! It was a nice surprise, it has a different system of the current trend of games (which I saw on old games in the past when I was a kid). Go for it!

Shadow Warrior Viscera Clean up Detail - No, really I can´t recommend it, the idea is original but it is turn bored in a few mins. I finished it because I am a completionist, but you can ignore it

I have/will have their reviews on steam (on Spanish) if you are interested

If you are here. thanks for your time! BLAEO is helping me on cleaning my backlog a lot, it´s a long journey, but I am motivated after this month. I will do a June plan in a few days. Stay tuned, if you want xD.

LET´S GO MAY! (AIORI´S 1ST PLAN)

I´ve come with a plan for this month, now that I am more settled on the site I got some ideas to create my own plan to fight my backlog. Here it is:

1ST STEP: Finishing my 1st Challenge me

I will probably fail because I only beated 1 game, and completed another 1, of 5, and I will beat 2 more before the 15th, but I am not sure if I will have enough time to play the last one, but I will end it this month too, I am a man of honor xd.

I am still in quarantine, but I have a lot of pending work and some familiar issues, so time to play is less than in april.

images 34/78 8 h
images 8/34 3 h

2ND STEP: Monthly Theme: Think Local

I am from Galicia, the northwest region of Spain. On my country there are few videogames developed, and I only have 3 of them, so I take 1 to match the monthly theme, plus it is short and its based on a game that I played when I was a kid, with no much fortune, because I did not understand all the mechanics when I was younger. The study is 600 km away aprox. (I have 1 videogames study on my city, but I only have 1 game from them and I finished it some time ago).

Game Achievements Actual Time

3ND STEP: A long term game

I think that I will include 1 long term game this month, not to finish it on may, but it will be a fixure on my list until I finish it. In this case, it probably take me like 4 months, more or less, to complete (to beat, a few less). Plus I need some action from time to time xd.

Game Achievements Actual Time

4TH STEP: A Roguelike game

I like this kind of games, because you can play a run in few hours, or even minutes if you have bad luck, and you will unlock new things for your next run. I am follower of Dead Age since Early Acces, and I spent a lot of time in it, but I have some pending achievements, so I will try to unlock them. If I remember correctly they are achievable in 2 runs more.

Game Achievements Actual Time
images 66/77 47 h

LAST STEP: My favourite genres

My favourite game genres are the turn-based games (preferably RPG or strategy) and the fighting games, so I include 1 title of each. They are relatively short, so I will finish then eventually. If not this month, They will be finished on june.

AND THAT¨S ALL…for the moment. I will try not to buy new games,and if I buy some (my problem are the bundles xD), I will leave their keys deactivated until I finish some games, I am thinking in a ratio like if I finish 4 games I can activate 1 new . Wish me luck, it is the 1st time that I will focus in some specific games.

What do you think? Which are your plans for May?

Stay safe. Greetings from Galicia!

I wrote a very nice log about april summary, then I lost all…I pass to write it again, sorry…

If I recover the spirit, I´ll write the may plan in a few days.

Stay safe. Greetings!

APRIL 2020
Last update 17/04/20 (Will do the 2nd part at the end of the month)

Eiyu Senki: Recomendable game which mixes turn-based strategy, the world conquest and visual novel with tons of fan service (and light hentai). I give it an 8.5.

The Search: Recomendable game, and free at this moment, for relaxing. It has some puzzles, some collectible notes and some curious philosophical moments. I give it an 8.

Broken Sword: The Shadow´s of the Templars: I played the original when I was younger, and it was a good time to remeber it. There are some enchancements, puzzles and scenes respect to the original one, but the experience and the sensations are the same. I just dislike 2 things, in the new scenes the voice of the protagonists are different from the original ones and I had to play it in a 4:3 resolution, but I suppose that it´s normal with old games. A good adventure to play, even in the actual time. I give it a 9.

Greetings!

Without a plan to reduce my backlog for the moment, do you have any suggestions? At this moment, I have finished a 80 h game and now I am going for a couple of short games, in order to reduce the list.
