Hello and welcome to my profile.

I’ve changed this damn description so many times I no longer know what to put. I only ever look at others when there are pictures so why would I bother with mine!

I actually beat this for the 1st time last year in june apparently but I checked many times and I never talked about this story. This is one of many that I guess just slipped through the cracks so I'll talk about it now.

This game has obvious mistakes but it didn't really distract from the game. I really enjoyed it surprisingly the 1st time round and I still really enjoyed it when repeating it that I'm gonna keep it. The art is pretty cute to me even if no nose is certainly a statement and I enjoy the whole 2 playthrough thing to see everything.

I'm not a big fan of their other free game trick and treat but I brought last year Winters empty mask and the other is wl so I cant wait to try those out too

This game was pretty good for the 1st 2 routes but after that it was just boring. After my 1st one I didn't pay to much attention but there was bonus stuff for replaying it but by the 3rd there wasn't anything really, I didn't do the text so I just kept walking wherever needed.

I gave away this game a lot of times but I'm glad I activated it since it was a very fun and interesting experience. What made it very unique again lost its touched by the 3rd route since it was pretty much the same choices each time, but the 2nd route after knowing everything was just amazing to see. This game gets put in tier 1 alot so if you can get it

I dropped this ages ago since I couldn't deal with another badly translated game and yeah its terrible. I read the only 3 chapters they have there and wow. 1st of all there are no options anywhere, you cant change the screen, you cant change the language, you cant change the text nothing. You have both English and Japanese text on the screen, when someone popped up playing a game it wasn't off to the side like normal it was just kinda smacked near the middle.

Look the art is pretty nice and I can see it being really interesting once more chapters come but as it is, its a mess. It was to awkward to read and I cant believe it has a positive rating when most badly translated games don't


Escape to Moscow

I really enjoyed this game but I got to be honest I'm disappointed in the ending. As a free game and considering its escape to moscow it cant be helped but I wish there was more. We finally escaped what seemed for real and we don't get to see it. It was so disheartening seeing the credits roll knowing that yep this wasn't just another bad end. I want to find out more about this girl and our strange dude, I want to know how they will survive and what happens to them in general. We don't get a big pay off but I did still like this game, it was a very nice short read and while I'm sure it won't be carried on I would love and happily pay for it to be so

I must've touched this before since I have the achievements and it was done very early in my blaeo days but damn its awful. Pretty much every sentence is badly translated. I will say though haha to the people looking for quick achievements because you can't skip it!

Synthetic Love

Normally I can ignore mistakes in games but there was so many that I couldn't avoid it especially when I had no idea what I was doing. The more it told me to talk to people the more it bugged me and the more those stupid grammer mistakes got to me, like what do you do night. I can tell what they meant to say and what not but it just shouldn't be happening

As well the text stuff (I know this made sense at the time but now I'm confused) the screen was annoying. If I have the option to go full screen and window its fine but when it goes into full screen but is broken that's when it becomes a problem. There's a reason this game is mostly negative

After writing this I read a review and I cant believe its by the same people as last weekend. I didn't actually mind that game and I funnily enough played it right before and I came across a game breaking bug then so yeah just not good for the dev


I didnt forget about my post this time. Okay I did slightly but in my defence I had to go shopping so it slipped my mind for a little bit. Compared to last time I didn’t start playing and before doing anything, except some eating, I went straight to doing my report.

This story was amazing and I'm so disappointed to see that the other parts might not come. It ended right as things were kicking off and while I did get slightly lost during the action scenes I loved them. Considering its only been a month since its release I hope it will be noticed more so the devs feel like they can release it on steam


Coffee Talk

This game is known as the coffee version of VA-11 and I did compare it to that myself.

This was an amazing game, I liked VA-11 but I did prefer a bunch from this game. Making drinks seemed like you were, you saw little pictures of our dude chopping up ginger ready for the drink and we had real ingrediants. It wasn't just some random words, you want a lemon drink well you know exactly what thing you need to use.

I liked how everyone interacted with everyone, it wasn't just make a drink here and they talk a bit they interact with someone. If our regular isn't here people will comment on it, if they are sitting near each other they will have a full conversation. It just made the game better then I expected it to be.

I got to say I'm pretty impressed that I managed most of this game without a walkthrough. They updated the game with a bonus chapter and seemed to take out alot of puzzles, so I just had to do things myself. For the most part its pretty linear, you go from area to area and thats it. Other times you might have a giant puzzle that takes up the whole area which is just a pain

I'm glad they added the last chapter in since it just wraps it up nicely. I feel like before it would've been quite disappointing to end but I really liked the style of everything


Tokyo Xanadu eX+

This is amazing, definitely my favourite jrpg yet. Considering this was back to back with ni no kuni 2 I didn't feel burnt out. Most of this game is you just going around town. I could easily spend 2+ hours per chapter just speaking to everyone and doing side stuff then spend like 10 in a dungeon. While it got a bit tiring the later we got in chapters but it felt so worth it. There are so many side characters you can talk to and they just feel important. Like oh there's the diet lady and the coupon kid + mum. There's the hostess and maid, every character has their own background and you really learn to love them all. It really is important to talk to them though because each chapter you get some notes on certain characters you talk to

Now for the gameplay in dungeons I was surprised, normally I pick out 3 characters I prefer most and that's it. Everyone felt important and different in their own way. Kou was just the all-rounder. Asuka felt pretty much the same but faster. Sora was very fast but her special move was pretty lacking compared to others. Yuuki I really liked for his range attack because you can move unlike others. Shio has fire like Kou, he is very slow but does more damage. Mitsuki was my least favourite, her range felt slow, the melee was spells so awkward but you need her to avoid damage in certain dungeons. Rion is wind like Sora, she felt lacking like Mitsuki but her jump attack + special felt the strongest. Finally we have Gorou who is like Yuuki but there's no redeeming features for him, he felt to slow that the damage output didn't seem enough. His melee is like a ranged attack but then he tries to attack and the special was the same as Shio which I didn't like personally.

If you read the above bit I mentioned fire and wind. I'm wasn't totally sure on what the different attributes were so I'm just saying what I classed them as. Fire, speed, wind, strength and shadow. In actuality speed was spirit and strength was steel. You will need to use them all if you want to get an S rank and such. While later on you can swap characters core attribute they can only swap to certain ones, Kou can do them all but the others can only go for 2 so you cant just pick out 2 characters you like the best and just play with them you will need to play with ones you don't like. Which brings me to the final chapter dungeon which was amazing. It made us play as all of the characters. I just really liked being forced to use other characters, normally I don't bother and brute force my way through who ever I picked because away from like a magic spell I didn't see the point

When you aren't just going around town and doing dungeons there is an arcade and skateboarding. In the arcade you got games like whack a mole, crane game, a card game, a fishing game and I didn't touch the others. The skateboarding was a nice little challenge to perfect and during your down time you can cook and try to win toy capsules. Maybe you even want to return to old dungeons which you can do at any time, plus don't worry the game will never progress without warning you

This was just an amazing experience, it was very story heavy but not the point of being annoying for lack of fighting. Meeting everyone each chapter seeing how they've progressed was nice and the endings were so sad. It's an expensive game, I was lucky enough to be gifted it by sam, but if you like jrpgs then give it a try


🧠 OUT OF THE BOX

I struggle with games like this on how I feel, this game started out promising but then we reached a certain point where the difficulty reached 100. Now I didn't exactly struggle to gain enough cash in fact I just had like 100 spare by my last bill but it was frustrating. Everyday it was like let people in but everyone was drunk, everyone had bags, everyone had a stupid fake id. It just became impossible to play without getting annoyed and I shouldn't be getting annoyed at a game.

I did however really enjoy the story and having Randal from Randals monday pop up, I actually thought it was the same people because of how spot on together they are but they aren't. I say games to me are more important for their story but the thing is this games gameplay is its whole thing, so it being a disappointment really just ruins the game


6 PEOPLE

I talked about this before but I want to give my opinion on a 2nd time go. This isn't a great game, its basically a little demo for what's suppose to be a bigger story. You don't get much you just see 6 people stuck in a train with no idea what's happening and just secrets left for its ending

I was able to notice more things this time round. I noticed all the differences in the main story and was able to put it together. I don't remember what I was doing last time, I'm sure I didn't bother trying to work things out but having done so this time, I appreciate it more. It doesn't make it a good story though, it took me under 8 minutes and that's not enough time to get me hooked. It apparently is 1 part and 2 more to come a promise I don't like.

I did I believe 1 half of the 1st route before stopping. Idk whether it was me or actually the game but it was awkward. It just didn't make a lot of sense to me. 1 thing happened after another without time to explore and figure out what is going on. As it currently is I don't see myself going out and playing the rest, this 1 day prologue really didn't click


I went back to look at my stats from the start of my blaeo life and its a surprise just how much progress I’ve done. Since the start I’ve added like 600 games. Went from 60% average to 92-93. 96 perfect games to 480+ and coming up to an extra 30k achievements. You know what I also see there I still haven’t beaten chinese paladin in all those 2 years XD 1 day it will be done 1 day

So you probably catch on that my bottom one is blank. It was a while ago I cleaned things up so I could sort through things easier but its just gonna be a clean start. I put it down in my monthly one before this but I’m keeping track of my times on hltb and I hope to keep it up. I actually made a decent progress on my games before that and its funny how I had 4 less games in the middle row compared to the one before that.

I’m very surprised by the amount of games I’ve played. I actually know it should be more because I missed out on a couple of items but damn almost 300 is amazing. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t have more overall, 80 is still a bunch extra but it felt like so much more. Anyway I don’t normally bother with goals but screw it I lets get my games back to 30% I keep doing about 1/3 of my games each year so last was 200 to 600 this year is 300 to 900. Everything includes steam games that were replayed for completing or otherwise, but not talked about, steam only are brand new games.

Well this was a decent month to end on all games were great not you shenmue screw you die This month I started up a profile on hltb its nice just having somewhere to record my time and actually have something to compare the others to.

Well I don’t wanna drag it out I have my year report so onto favourites. I was gonna end up having 2 games but I didn’t finish tokyo xanadu in time so its just Ni No Kuni. You can see by my time and achievements that I spent hours a day just playing it because it deserves that.

This was a pretty good hog especially since it had no bonus story! Look whenever a hog doesn't have a bonus chapter it gets bonus points, it gets extra bonus points if I generally dislike the normal game. Overall the story was pretty good and the kid seemed like a normal kid. He didn't have this weird deep voice and just ugly looking face. The other characters also just looked great and while its not that new anymore to me its one of the newest I played and liked the look of


Shenmue II

Look this game is better then the 1st one but when it makes you groan at the idea of it, its not worth keeping. I never imagined getting rid of shenmue, I heard so much I had hope but I seriously did dislike the idea of carrying on.

Just like before whats good is kinda bad. I like that we have a bigger area but I also didn't like going back and forth between them, especially the ones that you had nothing to do in it (story wise). I did appreciate having a map of the area though, I mean we went to the same areas pretty much but it was still nice at the start to know where your exits were.

The fighting I had a problem with last time but I didn't mind it as much, it felt easier to deal with 6 people then it did before with even 3. I liked having their health bar show up it gave a nice indication of how much longer you will be fighting for. The qtes were a bigger part of the game and while I hated the 3 button sequences since I kept failing somehow I did want it to be a bigger part and it was.

Story/game wise again better. It was more packed in instead of having to wait days to progress a couple of things and they even let you wait if you had to do a 7pm timer. The people I preferred and while the jobs were still boring at least you had to concentrate instead of mindlessly bringing a box place to place for pretty much the whole day.

This game was pretty great considering the original but I didn't want to carry on. Shenmue 1 ruined my mood and by the time I got into the 2nd I wanted it to be over with. I still appreciate what it was trying to do but it didn't work for me. I don't have any nostalgia for the game either so I had nothing keeping me going. It took almost 2 decades to get a 3rd game and an ending to the series, its disappointing finally finishing this game only to be stuck with a cliffhanger. Maybe if it comes out in a bundle in a future I'll get the 3rd just to see the full story but at the price it is, even at half price I don't see myself ever buying it. Looking at the reviews theres no qtes which was a big part of the series for me

I haven't completed the dlc but I've played enough to finally write my review for all of it. This is an amazing game that I was lucky enough to win. I can see why its compared to a ghibli movie which I also love.

All the characters in this game were great and with how indepth even the side quests are you feel like you know them all. The same is with some of the monsters its just insane. For simple stuff like go kill this creature or deliver this item somewhere none of it felt dull

I see some people say the main game is very story heavy which apparently is not liked but come on its a jrpg its meant to be story heavy! I believe it worked nicely anyway, I didn't feel like the story dragged on to long and the same could be said about going place to place. The worst bit was the voice acting, for what there was it wasn't bad, it just doesn't last long. In the cutscenes it plays which is the most important parts but the other bits its random, at 1 half there could be voices in the next sentence it might not. This lead me to only turning my volume up when it came to those points.

I don't really know what else to say after all this time so lets go to dlc. So as mentioned I haven't beaten it but I've played enough. Admittedly I wasn't a fan, the story bits were nice but I didn't like the stupid dungeon parts. During the main game we have these dreamer doors that are suppose to be like a big challenge and that went to the dlc as well. The Lair of the Lost Lord is the part I'm talking about and it was a pain having to do 3 extra levels again and again because they kicked you out every 23 levels, you luckily got a warp per 20 levels but repeating those random dungeons are just a drag. As I've always said though my main concern is story and that was nice and contained more interesting characters and side stuff

Look if you like jrpgs you will most likely love this. It has a mix of things between the main gameplay, little battle modes where you have to strategise kinda. You can build up your kingdom and really put a lot of time into that

While the original focused on normal questions this game amps it up. Now we do would you rather ones, we get put into situations where we got 4 options and of course the repeat ones like do you believe in magic and all those ones

You can tell by my time its bigger and so it just everything. The game is more atmospheric with sounds and words popping up randomly. The area is bigger and more dangerous looking. The character talking to us speaks in like this blood text and has an actual character sprite. This game is just bigger and better then the other.

This time round my secret word is Trust

1st of all this is a gift from Sam which is why I brought the other 2 because I felt like I should do it in order. Thanks to her I got to experience like 2 hours enjoyment

This game has similar questions as the 2nd but introduces pictures to the mix. I wasn't a big fan of the pictures but it was nice to see something new. This also introduces a new person who seems to be the 1st guy we had and now that I look closer the mask wasn't the face with a massive moustache… wow okay so apparently I spell it the american way and not the uk way so I got corrected. Seriously O? thats stupid! Their little sprite does not do justice. They weirdly add a story to the game which yeah just weird but like I enjoyed these games surprisingly and I want their others

My secret word is Talented? The person who put up the secret word thread also had the same where we swear we saw fantasy but it kept saying talented.


Oh don't you judge, I brought more games but it was just wallet money this time. I wasn't planning on spending anymore but I ended up waking up to an extra £2 in my wallet so I decided I'd get more then just spending it on more badges! Plus I deserve more games after shenmue hurt my soul I need to heal.

I'm honestly disappointed in this game, I played it years ago and I really liked this story. I know it isn't really liked especially when you compare it to dandelion which is the same thing. There is also something about these type of games that make certain scenes awkward. There's something just weird about having a sex scene just be text that makes me cringe. I've dealt with worse topics and longer ones that don't last a minute but that minute is way to long for these stories!

Playing this game really showed me its bad side, the story just isn't that great. This is a mystery story that shouldn't be a mystery. You get bits and pieces of the mystery each route you do but there's 1 character that really ruins everything. They have a totally different story happening that contradicts what we experience with the other boys. Their character arc was annoying during it and because of everything its hard to be like yeah they truely do love the mc. It also just feels rushed, I know their other games aren't truely groundbreaking but there was just something off about this girl breaking up with her love being heart broken only for the next day be like I love you! I don't love my ex at all like dude no. Despite the main story I like the fact their special is the same. Normally their special story is a date and its totally different, this time round they are all the same. It's all about her going on a diet for a week. It gives a nice perspective on how supporting the guys are. Do they want the girl to lose weight or will they be like you are fine as is.

Artwise is definitely not polished but I like the characters even if they have the biggest nose ever. Just like I felt with fluffy store I think they match nicely for their animal counterparts. They also keep up their personalities nicely. Ramin is the oldest so he's nice and mature, its fun seeing him know about her friends. Assam has this quirk of wanting to keep everything clean as a pig and he's just so sweet. Lufna is just a lazy cat who thinks he can take on the world and then Lize whos just so damn clingy and rude. He's a rabbit he has that whole sad/cute thing going on but yeah just never stops with trying to claim us. I can only compare this to dandelion which only had rabbits and cats. I didn't see much personality from them, it was just simply random stuff while this feels like some form of animal was added to them. I really like the guys together as well, its a whole lot of fighting and its pretty much the same thing through each route but it was fun. Apparently no other meat but pig exists because thats all they talk about, any form of bird is a no go and apparently onions are deadly to cats. Its just funny to see even as a human that they are weary about what they lived for all that time

So in the end I did see the bad side coming from the story but it didn't stop me enjoying it. I can be disappointed at the same time as liking it. This game is luckily shorter then its others so it was just a nice short read

This is a nice game with lots of stuff to collect like outfits and colours. I enjoy the actual missions compared to the free roam in chapter 4 but it was a cute and fun adventure. The dlc was also nice and I didn't mind the free roaming there, it also gave way to my favourite outfit. I don't really have much to say I 100% everything but the death wish part which I'll be taking care of after I write this review down

Oh look a special Christmas review. Merry Christmas everyone especially all my santas who gave me such wonderful gifts. As you can see I brought a lot just myself with many of them being sequels to complete my collection. It looks like so much but alot there were bundles or just so cheap that it barely cost anything. I cant wait to try some of them out but 1st of all I'm gonna focus on my gifts, I've done my wins at this point and its time I touch my gifts. I've played what ended up being most of them but I also know I have long games like Tokyo Xanadu eX+ that haven't been touched since last winter

This was a nice little game with some cute looking characters but right now I cant decide if its worth keeping. I knew getting into it, that it would end on a cliff hanger. I see that its next part should be coming out next year hopefully but idk whether its worth getting since I did get this from a bundle. I have just looked at the price and if its roughly the sameish I wouldn't mind actually buying the next part especially since it looks so nice. Unfortnutely theres been no replies on that game so I have no idea whether I'll be waiting years to finish the story or what and thats what worries me more. I don't want to encounter another cliff-hanger


It doesn’t look like much but I’ve also beaten ni no kuni 2, however I’m not gonna bother posting that until I got the dlc since I don’t believe a couple of missions is gonna make a big impact. Hopefully by next week I’ll also get shenmue 2 out of the way and maybe even hat in a time

This week I’ve also entered challenge me, the past couple of months I’ve been slacking on my pop games and the like. With a new year coming its time to get back to business and do what I always did, play them all to the best of my ability

Agent A: A puzzle in disguise

I really liked this game. I liked how they made such a small area big, its a spy house so the more you play the more you somehow unlock another area. What seems like a bathroom is actually a safe room and we do just spend our whole time in this girls house. I know in edna and harvey breakout you spend most of your time in just 1 place but even that lets you go to other places, its just so different to other point and clicks because of the area and the fact its in 1st person. The whole story isn't that original and I thought we were gonna play as the girl but I was very happy with what it was. I do agree with Rikki that the animation is slightly slow. There's a lot of back and forth, everything you do zooms you in so you want to leave a room you could be zooming out 3 times or more. It's really not a big problem though

This game broke me with its idle achievement but I really enjoyed it. It was exactly like I hoped it would be, I just wish they would've let you play Maniac Mansion without going into the game. I was considering doing the whole game of the prequel and not just for the achievements but I had to play it to get to it. By that point it kept talking about past events and I was into the main story that I didn't want to finish it anymore. So yeah they kept mentioning the original game but by the point I reached it I didn't care and really from what I played it didn't matter. The main game stood out on its own and you get enough info from the little snippet of gameplay and talk.

What is it about animal related stores that scream different languages. Nekopara, karakara and now this, all with achievements to play it in like japanese and whatever else. I have mixed feelings about this game, I appreciated how different the girls were but it was also its downfall. We finally have a story where the girls aren't in love with the dude, frankly they seem like they hate him more then like and thats the problem I have. I like that its different but every other sentence is them calling him a jerk, stupid, ugly and the sort. So yeah I ended up loving that they weren't typical but it just became annoying because of how different they were.

The same is with the characters in general. I like how they look, the rabbit has that cutesy innocent look to them, shes the happiest of the bunch and stuff. The bear is kinda lazy and has more of an adult look to them. Then the fox is just middle of the road with looks and just has a hyper, slyness to her. However the more you read the more they kinda mix together, its nice to see the girls getting along but they just end up with the same personality. The rabbit girl you see with it most, again she was the nicest and so happy only to become to the one who calls you the jerk the most. It was just sad seeing her become way to much like the fox

If I had to choose between liking and disliking this game I like it. While it has its faults it was still a nice thing to read. Compared to nekopara buisness didn't instantly bloom, you actually saw their hardships. Even at its best there was still so much trouble that the owner had to take on which was nice to see. So yeah everything that is bad about this game also made it great, I cant fault it for actually getting rid of the romance harem scenerio they easily could've done


Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard

While I don't mind these games I cant say I really enjoy them to play more then once or twice. This game is much bigger then the other and it felt slow to me. Compared to the 1st game it will update the notebook with everything done, all the people you meet, all the times you do something for them it just made it annoyingly slow. It's not actually slow though but compared to how short the 1st one was and having a small area still it was weird to see. It also has more then one ending which was interesting to see since it had a short cut but also didn't seem really worth looking at. It just also didn't get me at the start like the original did with the low lyrics


Shenmue I

While I appreciate this game trying to be realistic it was very disappointing. Clearly what I know about shenmue comes from the 2nd game. Playing this game was boring to me, while I found it charming what they were doing with the timer situation it became annoying fast. When you need to wait until 8 to move to the next day its not fun especially when you end up in a situation where it makes you wait until like 7pm days in a row. This becomes less of a problem later on but then they make you do work. I'm sorry but I didn't expect to being 5+ days of boring work, it just became increasingly slow and boring. There's just not enough inbetween each event to make it worth while doing anything. I also hated the fighting, I felt so weak and it was very annoying being stuck fighting multiple enemies. I don't actually care about how weak we do feel I just hate every battle pitting us against like 6 of them and expecting us to not be dragged about. This was happening between the work load so it did just become the worst days ever when I knew I was only like 2 proper events away from the ending. I also found myself getting stuck alot, funnily enough at work. There would be times where I got stuck in place and I had to fiddle about for ages wasting my precious time because somehow an invisible wall is blockin me in. Or a stupid old man wont let me out of his home! Finally on the last day when I got given an item it just stayed on my screen, like I've never played this game before so maybe it was intentional but I got a sneaking suspicion that it wasn't suppose to block my ending…

Again I appreciate them trying to be realistic. It felt like a real day and it makes sense we would be a weak teenager but the execution of all just made it a boring experience. I saw that the timer is a little different in the next game so I'm hoping its better but so far this hasn't lived up to the name.

This isn't the best game ever but its a fine silly short game. Just from the start picking the graphics reveals how silly it will be. If you ignore all the bonus chat it can be done in like 15 minutes but everyone there is just so weird that you may as well question them

This was a short weird little game that gives you a lot to think about at the end. It was just a wonder game to go through even if the animations were a bit on the slower side especially when repeating death scenes over and over again


This week I ended up winning Ni No Kuni 2. As expected it has taken alot of my time up but luckily it cant really be seen here as I have done a bunch of short games. So this month really is focusing on my 5 awesome games and my 6 hb games, plus ni no kuni of course. Shenmue still needs its 2nd game finished up and then I need to play a hat in time for my final awesome/hb game. I know I say alot that I barely do much but I think I really won’t have alot of games this month, those 3 games alone are so long to complete and then we have the steam sale

I Am Legend: Awakening

Maybe its because I never watched or read I am legend but this wasn't really what I expected. I recently watched videos on how to beat the characters in I am legend and it looked pretty interesting. Reading the plot from the wiki page on the 5 different stories was better then the comic. Honestly all 5 were pretty short and kinda all over the place that I didn't actually know what was happening until I did read the wiki page

My 1/3 Boyfriend

Also known as 1/3 NO KARESHI is of course a romance story. Its a story about a guy who confesses to the girl but just lots of misunderstandings and truths have to come out 1st. I like the sort it was and the maker of it has more interesting sounding stories

Out of control

I don't like dc but wow that was just so silly. It's just so short and there just to promote air heads, like literally the candy is just randomly falling from the sky and the next minute superman has caught lex luthor. Like we didn't even see anything happening apart from air heads. Also braniac (i assume its them idk dc) totally stole the show


So I didn’t actually finish anything this week. I’ve done the whole 4 days before review before but I just had no games upcoming that were quick enough to fit in, or any that I hadn’t done before. I was gonna pick up a very short free game but decided in the end that I’ll just stick to what my original plan was because I decided to talk about the comics I’ve been reading lately

I didn’t prepare anything again just nothing has come up but I hate having nothing for this especially when I have to pick a favourite out. As aonrao saw and got told I cleaned up my blaeo circle thingy. I’m just trying to organise everything and its easier to do it here then through steam. It will probably be really messed up when I do my progress bar next month but thats how it is.

I wanna do 2 favourites this month just because I feel like picking heavy rain is a bit cheating. So yeah my favourite is heavy rain, I’ve said it plenty of times that I owned a ps3 just for that and beyond two souls and replaying it again, getting all the endings was amazing. My 2nd favourite will go to adventure pals. It’s not my typical game to play but I really enjoyed it and definitely one of the better games done this month as most were pretty sucky.
