December 2020 update

So… my first and last post here was 4 and a half years ago, where I joked about how I played the shit out of Rocket League the prior month. Well, here I am, 4 and a half years later and 3000 hours of Rocket League later, I can say I am finally free of the burden. My last game of Rocket League was in the beginning of 2020 and I am now ready to explore more games and tackle my backlog once again! I did beat a handful or two of games in my backlog while I wasn’t active here, but I didn’t document them. I’m glad I rediscovered steamgifts/BLAEO this month and thankfully the community is still thriving. I decided to beat my SG winnings first, so for now I won’t be following the monthly themes. Anyway, onto my progress for the month.

Games I beat in December 2020:

Little Inferno

7.7 hours, no achievements

Cozy and short game where you burn stuff in a fireplace, sounds dumb but it's actually pretty fun.


Schein

12.9 hours, 16 of 21 achievements

Really fun platformer with cleverly thought out puzzles that are very satisfying to solve. Sometimes it gets a bit too mechanically demanding which can be frustrating.


SteamWorld Dig

8.1 hours, 17 of 24 achievements

Platformer where you dig your way through the story while gathering new materials to sell and upgrade yourself. Gets a bit grindy at times but in a good way. Really fun overall.


Deadlight

6.7 hours, 22 of 31 achievements

Post-apocalyptic side scroller with a captivating story, fun gameplay and unique style. Loved it.


Collisions

7.5 hours, 7 of 24 achievements

The only game of the ones I beat that I didn't really like, it was way too short (a bit over an hour when you subtract my idle hours), and the puzzles were too easy and repetitive.


Titan Souls

8.1 hours, 8 of 27 achievements

Awesome game, really reminded me of the Souls games, which I love. Great bosses with unique way of killing each one, the soundtrack was nice too. The world is lacking in detail but that's to be expected with the style of the game.


Games I’m currently playing:

Fallout 4

80.0 hours, 25 of 84 achievements


Games I will try to beat in January 2021:

Dust: An Elysian Tail

3.4 hours, 0 of 30 achievements


Victor Vran

6.4 hours, 1 of 90 achievements


Fallout 4

80.0 hours, 25 of 84 achievements


And possibly more from my ‘Will play in the near future’ list but I don’t want to set my expectations too high and… post again in 4 years.

Overall, I’m happy with ticking 6 won from SG games off my backlog this month. Hopefully I can keep up the pace throughout 2021!

July update

I just joined last month and this is my first post ever. While I haven’t completed lots of games, I made a lot of progress since June when I finished 0 games and played the shit out of Rocket League. I did enjoy all of the games I beat in July, even though I’m not a perfectionist so I usually wouldn’t go out of my way for 100% achievements unless they are easy or I really like the game.
