I am completionist but have spent way too much time on some basically incompletable games.
Next, I will try to go through some games I have won, some Metroidvania, and C/JRPG games I accumulated.
I was moving half a continent and had no access to a stable internet connection. So, no achievements hunting and backlog smashing happened. We just settled. Rebooting.
Okay, I had to do at least one of the won games and tried a HOG - since those tend to end up a lot at ST. I only played one hidden object game so far, and is was short. I selected Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends and was not disappointed.
I like to try games with unconventional concepts, this is why I adopted Talk to Strangers. Unfortunately, this is another example a Limited Profile Features Steam game. I start to hate that thing…
Surprisingly entertaining and even challenging casual game, if you are eager to make a sale at every house, learn about the different stories and endings, and maybe get all achievements.
I would describe it as choice-driven rouge-like drummer (*door-to-door salesman) simulation. I was quite flummoxed when I tried this for the first time and fell for some cookies from a nice old lady. Instead of quitting, I learnt the ropes, became an artful barterer, and now can even count the Death to my customers. *gg*
However, the game is pretty repetitive, and if you cannot embrace the satirically dull life of a salesman this might fall flat for you. Art, sound, etc, is all good, what's missing is a game-mechanic beyond trial-and-error - there are hints of it in the park, and some strategies related to stress/depression management, but in the end it's all just decoration.
Fun for 4-6 hours before you know all the selling answer. 7-10+ if you want to see all. Still, I'd say it's worth the money.
Well, times and again I tried to reach salvation in Super House of Dead Ninjas.. great game but it has some really elite achievements. This time I managed to get a top 180 leader board score in the hard speed running mode - but still cannot get the 6 Minutes of Madness & co chievos. That is madness!
I’ve added some hours to Onikira: Demon Killer. Boy this game gets hard. I can only do this when I am fresh, that’s why this will take me a lot longer then I’d like.
The next thing I am going to finish is Captive, a nicely done horror/puzzle deviation of the usual RPG Maker sauce. End then maybe another classic JRPG… yea, I have a soft corner for those.
About two weeks ago I finished Deep Dungeons of Doom
This is one of those games that are simple, but not so easy to beat. And it takes an outrages amount of time to get to 100%.
Just some numbers how rare some items are: in 46 hours I found Mountain Spring water once. Never got the red key card (I got it once I think at hour 3 but did not know that it is rare and died anyway in the dungeon like a noob, yikes. So, I got never access to the Bubbly Potion, and still miss a Secret - but luckily this is does not prevent 100% achievements) I got a Power Berry about 3 times but could only secure it 1 time… and so forth. Then you have to do 666 levels in the endless dungeon, that’s not fun - but doable (using the Witch, a legendary weapon, like Hynx’ staff and the Curing Wand and 5h). Finally, you have to collect 30k gold to buy all the upgrades and secure the last achievos. Whahaha. I would not do it again. But when I was about to give up I finally made some progress and could beat the game, and then I just kept going… stupid, I know. However, the 9th Circle now is one of my rarest achievements.
I’ve pretty much spent the rest of the time playing Super House of the Dead Ninjas. I doing speed runs and dreaming of getting 100% - but this will probably never happen. Nonetheless, progress is possible and I could at least get 7 Minutes in Hell. I tried to stop playing this but it feels so good.
Heck, yeah. I’ve completed the game in about 6 hours and had a real blast. Yes, it gets freakin’ difficult in the 3rd realm, and collecting all 27 diamonds there is a challenge, but it’s so satisfactory when you do. Since my fingers started to hurt (the wall jump is damn hard - press towards the wall when you touch it, then jump, press jump again for consecutive wall jumps) I switched to an xbox one wireless and have to say the inputs feel better using a controller. Unfortunately, the game is not tracked here and it also has no achievements. I still mark it as completed since I have not only beaten the game but collected every diamond in all realms (and I think there are no secret levels). So, 100% done.
Unfortunately, this does not show up in the All Games section since it is a Limited Profile Features title.
Not fully beaten yet but has no achievements anyways.
Again, this does not show up in the All Games section since it is a Limited Profile Features title.
