Hey there! I did’t update for almost a year… Didn’t have time for that but i continued my fight, even though not very successfully… Anyway i lost my job so now i have some free time… let’s go! It took me several hours to compile that post :D

I didn’t make posts for quite a while, it’s time to wrap up my backlog struggle.

FPS with a twist - time moves when you move. I had a really good time with it, if you didn't touch it by this time then what are you waiting for?
It's the most innovative shooter I've played in years!

A puzzly-buildy game, connect the goo blobs to reach the goal. I don't remember why i dropped it but it's a greatly fun game made by an awesome developer and i enjoyed it a lot.
Tomorrow Corporation, i loved all 3 of their games and highly recommend them.

It's pretty much a 2d Silent Hill. Everything is very nicely done - story, art, MUSIC, atmosphere! Totally recommend it!

NOVEMBER

Also picked it up for October monthly theme but didn't finish it in time, no regrets anyway! A second installment of a great RPG series by CD Project RED, gameplay is way better than in the first game but still leaves a lot of room for wishing better. The story pretty much picks up where the book finishes (and i just finished reading it before picking the game, what a coincidence :P) and it's as good as you expect from a Witcher game. The only really bad thing i can tell about it is the boss fights... they're just ugh...
Second game from the Witcher franchise, it's pretty great as expected.

It's the Alien Shooter... TD. They pretty much reused the sprites from their Alien Shooter games and made a tower defense, but surprisingly it's pretty good and i would recommend it for TD lovers, just like all the Alien Shooter games for top-down shooter lovers!
If you like TD genre and/or Alien Shooter franchise then i highly recommend this one.

Old point'n'click goodness, wanted to play it for like 15 years but never actually did until now (won it on SG AND that monthly theme!). I liked it a lot, that story and the world they built... just awesome, had some troubles playing it through cause i couldn't find what i need to do but it's all fine.
A very recommended p'n'c game for genre fans!

JANUARY+FEBRUARY, barely had time to play so i finished only one game in over a month…

Action RPG from the Larian studios and their Divinity franchise, not the best of their games but it's still pretty decent. The gameplay is very dull and i didn't enjoy it, i had some fun with the story and the world/characters though.
I'd recommend it if you like the lore of the Divinity series.

I didn’t make posts for like 2 months now cause of my working schedule overload, i didn’t play much as well. Finally i have time to wrap up what i’ve beaten.
I’ve also bought a new PC and barely even touched anything new on it…

P'n'c adventure, 3d environments like in the third game but somehow controls are more awkward. Now i played all of the Broken Sword franchise, this one is definitely the worst one but it's still a decent game.
4th game in the Broken Sword franchise, can't see why you shouldn't play all 5 of them.

A fun little roguelike(-te), the gameplay is Mad Max style road brawl with a decent amount of weapons/upgrades/crew and fun enough for me to 100% it. Hard at first but then something clicked and i started to win runs "easily". RNG can still ruin the run, some bosses are the run-enders if you don't have required gear, but it's still kind of fair.
At first is seems very hard but when you get the hang of it - you can finish most of the runs. Go get it if you like roguelikes(-tes)!

It's a pretty lame mobile cash grab from a studio which turned from good to bad in a couple of years. Still the game is in one of by favorite universes (almost completely ruined by Bethesda) and it worked well with my working schedule when i could afford only a couple of hours to play once in 1-2 days.
Don't touch it unless you NEED to kill a lot of time with a huge time gaps between the game sessions.

Stealth action, fun when you STEALTH-run it, frustrating when you clear all foes for the achievement. Sometimes mechanics don't work properly but it's kind of rare. Overall it's pretty decent and i would recommend it if you like stealth games.
Get it if you like stealth genre, it's nowhere near my favorite original Thief though.

It’s not even a monthly update anymore, it’s update whenever i have time and mood for it…

A pretty fun turn-based tactics from the 1999, though it didn't age too well. First of all you need some sort of graphics fix to run it properly, i used dgVoodoo 2 as explained in this guide, though newest version didn't work for me and the older one did. PS1 era graphics, nonsensical crappy story, basic level of tactics (new x-com level but with TINY battlefields, though compensated with a lot of inventory items) - full nostalgia trip.
PS1 era turn-based tactics, what can be better? Well... a lot of things, but it's still a pretty good game.
Finally i finished it. A typical Spiderweb rpg (top-down view, turn-based when in combat, a lot of exploration, great lore), though it's the older one with a weird UI and control scheme which can be a deal breaker for some. The world and story in this one are exceptional, you even learn some things about Roman empire as well as Britannia history and folklore while playing. I like Spiderweb games a lot but, oh my, aren't they a bit too long?
Did you play a Spiderweb one before and liked it? If the answer is YES then you should try this one, otherwise try something from a more modern Avernum series with a lot more streamlined UI and controls first.

A short strategy/resource management thingy with some randomness involved. You gotta make money by buying plantations, growing trade goods and selling them and then hunt for the art pieces on the auctions, you compete against AI or other players though and have some mechanics to mess things up for each other.
A fun short game, nothing special.

A HUGE improvement over the previous game, it crashed only a couple of times, gameplay is more fun, this time there is even some exploration... BUT everything is RUINED when you get to the escort missions, i swear it's the worst of the worst of escort missions mechanics ever: you move freely out of combat and switch to turn-based combat when the enemies are near you or NPCs you are escorting, the moment there is no combat NPCs just dash in their waypoint direction and stop only when they find enemies and you can't possibly be quick enough to catch up to them before they die unless you know their whole route EXACTLY and keep yourself in combat while clearing everything you can but the moment you fail to maintain combat mode - it's pretty much over. I wasted 2+ hours trying to complete the mission but my patience didn't last long enough.
Avoid 2.

2D space shooter/trader with a pretty good world and interesting storyline, it's still "work in progress" though. For a Free-to-play game it's amazing but it has some mildly annoying things going on: turning the ship to slow down, combat isn't exactly fun, random things can force you to reload a lot, best source (IMO) of income is boarding ships and selling them, trading sucks. I stopped somewhere in the middle of the second campaign and i know that it ends abruptly a couple missions later so i might pick it up later to know what's going on.
It's free, try it out and see if you like it, the start is a bit slow though.

Quite nice roguelite which consumed a lot of my time in April. All you have to do is to deliver your energy core to the next level and eventually to the exit out of the dungeon, you have an interesting array of mechanics to develop your own strategies for the given situations.
If youre into roguelikes/lites then you should definitely try this one!
P.S. I'm looking for someone to go through mp achievements with, which is essentially to make it through a dungeon once.

A very good p'n'c game. The mechanics twist is you're a ghost and can do some ghostly stuff to help you navigate the map and solve puzzles, which are sometimes cruelly hard (i had to use the walkthrough for some parts). Otherwise it's your usual p'n'c adventure with an interesting story to capture your attention.

A uniquely styled p'n'c game, i was skeptical at first but i liked the style, i played it and i liked it a lot. The only downside that i found is some crucial elements might blend into the background so if you got stuck - just check out if there is an item hidden in plain sight somewhere around. Puzzles were pretty easy but entertaining.
Point'n'click game with a unique art style, pretty good but not without some minor flaws, I recommend it regardless.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

My gem of the monthly theme, i wanted to play this game since it was released and finally i got to play it and i wasn't disappointed, mostly. First of all you NEED a community patch to play the game, otherwise it's too buggy. It's a first person action rpg with heavy emphasis on the story and dialogues, the combat is VERY weak and can be described as BAD by current standards. You can get out of most sticky situations with your various non-combat skills, but towards the end you will need some decent fighting skills to finish the game.
If you can manage the mediocre combat system for the sake of great world, atmosphere and dialogues then you'll find this game awesome, otherwise you will be greatly disappointed.

Stealth/third person shooter that is mediocre at best. Stealth is unsatisfying, clunky and looks stupid, there are parts where you are forced to go guns blazing, the story and missions are simply boring, checkpoint system with all of the above is just a nail in the coffin. Visually the game looks decently and combat feels much better than the stealth counterpart... thats all of the good points i can think of.
Even if you love stealth games and happen to have this one in your library i wouldn't recommend actually playing it.

First of all i didn’t have too much time for gaming so it’s a monthly update instead of my usual 15 days.
Secondly i don’t have any LEGO games for the theme so i decided to play some games from the second list. I’ve beaten CiM and Prison architect but i also tried Besiege (and found out than i’m not creative enough though i managed to beat the first 15 levels) and Tropico 1 (i loved Tropico 3 and 4 but the first one didn’t age well, building things is hard as there’s no explainable reason why i can’t place it “there” so in the end the city looks like it was built by a completely drunk and crazy dictator, also the graphics caused the eye strain so i had to abandon it, maybe i’ll give it more chances later).

A transportation net builder simulator game. It's decently made but feels lacking in pretty much every aspect and gets boring very quickly, i still managed to finish the campaign, though for the last couple of levels i was bored to hell and just prayed for it to end.
Not a bad game but very shallow and the campaign drags far beyond the reasonable completion time. Play OTTD instead if you're interested in this type of game.

A fun p'n'c game with an interesting story and characters. First part of the game is great, but the second part felt worse though still pretty good. I wish a couple of puzzles weren't in the game as well as a couple of achievements. I played through the game 3.5 times, 1 normal while exploring everything, 1 for achievements with a guide, 1 for the speedrun achievement and 0.5 cause of the stupid spoon achievement didn't want to trigger for some reason even though i used it on everything starting from the first walkthrough.
A pretty fun p'n'c game, though the second part felt rushed. If you're a fan of this type of games then go ahead and play this one!

Dear Esther: Landmark Edition
A walking simulator, the first of a kind. The original was probably the only game that i bought on Steam without any discount and i never regretted anything. It was the most beautiful game i've ever seen and it was made on an already outdated Source engine! They ported the game to the Unity engine which enhanced some effects, added some minor things and added the developer commentaries which i didn't like cause they didn't match the pacing of the game as i had to wait out before triggering the next commentary or at times they ended far before i reached the next one.
I recommend it to anyone who likes walking simulators!

I celebrate monthly theme with all the flaws that i associate with console gaming such as bad ports, QTE, unskippable cutscenes, checkpoint save system, several binds for a single button, oversimplified gameplay. But even with all these in mind there are still some good games that i need to thank consoles for.

Murder-mistery-horror-openworld-weird game, when i won it - i played through the prologue and the only thought i had is "wtf, this shitty game can't be the cult following classic people are talking about" so i dropped it, with the monthly theme i decided to give it a second chance and oh my god it is a great game! The combat and QTE instant deaths that were showed in the prologue are definitely terrible throughout the game and it was a mistake by developer to place them in the beginning but what is making you forget about those (as well as constant crashes and terrible car controls) is a great story with a lovable main protagonist, cheesy dialogues and town folk.
I definitely recommend this game to anyone who can sacrifice the gameplay for a good story!

Hacky-slashy-tps-strategy game. After playing the Darksiders last month i thought it will be a good idea to play something similar for the monthly theme and this game is nothing compared to Darksiders. Hacky-slashy part of the game is not fun, combos weren't satisfying, strategy part of the game is not fun as well - gather some units to overpower the enemy troops and hope that sudden enemy backup won't roll over you (in the last parts of the game), driving feels stiff, special abilities cast with a kind of Guitar Hero style combo and take too much time to use often so it wasn't fun as well. I liked the style and overall design of the game, they also invited rock stars for voiceovers and bought some rock songs for the soundtrack so i guess that's where all the money went instead of gameplay.
Overall the gameplay is mediocre at best so it's another game where you need to sacrifice it for something else, this time it's a rock style.

Binary Domain
Being a cover shooter instantly places the game into the mediocre category but the cyberpunk world, design and story save it from being a bad game, i actually kind of liked it in the end. Can't even find anything else to say about this game.
And yet another game where you sacrifice gameplay for a good world and story, i'd recommend it for cyberpunk lovers.

Trying out new style of posts, titles are nav-tabs and pictures are steam store links in case you’re confused.

Shadowrun Returns is a turn-based tactics with a HEAVY emphasis on the story. In fact the gameplay is as basic as you can possibly make it: 2 actions per turn (3+ later), all attacks are simple hit/miss RNG in line of sight, barely any additional mechanics and even then most likely that only your main character can use them, dialogue options barely have any impact and 99% of the time all of them lead to the same result. On the bright side the story is interesting and locations are well designed, even though they are very small. I'm kind of disappointed that all those kickstarter millions resulted in a such basic game but i would still recommend it to play.
If you are looking for a WAY WAY WAY better gameplay in a cyberpunk turn-based environment - i STRONGLY recommend Paradise Cracked and it's pre-sequel, sadly it probably won't run on newer systems and the remastered version is in russian only.
Shadowgate is a p'n'c adventure and i have a kind of mixed opinion about it... Story is pretty weak, puzzles are fine but sometimes are not obvious at all and can require A LOT of trial and error and backtracking, having A LOT of useless items is not helping as well. I'd recommend it to a hardcore p'n'c fan and for a casual player with a walkthrough open by his side.
Castle Crashers is a kind of fun beat 'em up... with friends. Solo it wasn't too fun and i can't see any reasons to replay it ever though it has an option to unlock new characters and play through again. Other game modes weren't appealing as well. Overall i think it is a decent co-op game. Solo it's not too fun unless you like beat 'em ups.

Gods Will Be Watching is a seriously awesome game, though it’s quite hard on intended difficulty. When i started up the first level my reaction was pretty much “wtf, is that a game i’ve heard so much good stuff about?”, but then over the rest of the levels i simply loved the game (except for level 4 and DLC one, they’re quite tedious to replay). It has some neat style to it (even though i don’t like pixelated graphics), great story and every level puzzle is unique and fun (except for level 4, i hated it). Grab and play it if you’re into puzzles with a great story behind and even if not - there are easier modes that will let you enjoy the game (but not achievements).

Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a pretty good hacky-slashy game to relax, even on apocalyptic difficulty. Nice story and visuals, fun gameplay. Even finding all collectibles wasn’t hard and didn’t require some kind of walkthrough (except for a couple of pieces i didn’t even imagine could be hidden THERE). One negative thing was the grind to buy all the upgrades, it wasn’t fun. All in all a solid hack’n’slash to have a good time.

Shelter is a small game that teaches you how hard it is to be a mother… a badger mother. In just an hour you will explore a whole world of horrors that can happen to your little cubs. As there is only about 1.5 hours of main “story” i think the price tag is a bit high, but on a nice discount it should be a fun investment. Also bizarre menu design.

STASIS, i was pretty hyped up when i won it and… it was good, not as good as i imagined, but still a very good horrory point’n’click game. Visuals, atmosphere, story - all was great, but at times it became somewhat boring as nothing really happened until you make it happen and with a couple of puzzles the happenings had to wait for quite a bit. The suicide achievement feels forced for some shock factor, even though the protagonist had reasons and mindset to do that, not in the very beginning of the game though. I didn’t quite like how it ended and that some parts in the story weren’t used to their full potential. There are not many horror games that have the quality of this one, i recommend it to the horror fans.

CAYNE is a free to play continuation to the story presented in STASIS, not that of the main protagonist but it kind of reveals some of the consequences. I don’t think you should play it before the STASIS even though there are not many spoilers if any, it just makes a lot more sense after the first game. A couple of puzzles were very unintuitive and wasted a lot of time…

I’d love to see more games from these developers, even though their next game seems to have nothing to do with the STASIS world it still looks awesome.

El ninja was given for free and i expected it to be no more than a card farm. Surprisingly the game was pretty fun for that hour of playtime.

Experience 112… I’ll just copy my review for this one. The absolute WORST quest i’ve ever palyed. Unresponsive AI, clunky interface, game mechanics that randomly decide to not work properly leaving you wondering is that you who did something wrong or the game, abysmal loading times, nonexistant optimization with 10 fps as a norm in some areas, nonsensical puzzles. On the “bright” side the story was interesting enough and the whole control through cameras seemed interesting. Avoid this garbage of a game unless you’re mazochistic enough to torture yourself through it.

The Fall is a great game. The story is just gorgeous and the gameplay is good enough to support it. Puzzles were interesting and logical enough, no walkthrough needed, controls are a bit clunky, not too bad. Just play it, NOW, GO!

F.E.A.R, F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point, F.E.A.R.: Perseus Mandate. A decent shooter, nothing less, nothing more. Locations were quite bland and grey, i thought that office building part of the game will never end. Horror part of the game is just… why? Doom 3 will look scary compared to this one and Doom 3 is not scary at all aside from stupid jumpscares of course. A couple of jump scares and a couple of horrory scenes here and there, nothing to be interested in. Second expansion was made by a different team and i have only one question: spoilers Protagonist in the original game and first expansion is the same guy with “superhuman reflexes” which is represented by the bullettime mechanic, but in second expansion you play as a random operative which should not have the same powers but he does, also he is not killed by the “bad guy” and even getting some explanations from him, why?, it’s never explained, in the original it was clearly stated that there were only two “subjects” and then the project was closed. If you like FPS games, go ahead and play it, if you like horror games - it’s a disappointment.

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes, a decent 4x game with a couple of unique mechanics but it’s so so so shallow compared to Civilization series or the Endless series. Interesting to try out, but then you’ll come back to Civilization in no time.

Flesh Eaters is another game i thought is nothing more than a card farm, but it is actually pretty decent and will engage you for a couple of hours but then there will be no content left. My 5 hours of playtime include idle for cards for about 4 hours back when it was unfinished.

Future Wars, decent turnbased tactics, VERY easy except for a couple of missions that were interesting, the story is insanely cringy. Not a bad game overall.

Gateways, pretty fun metroidvania puzzle-platformer. When you find the “time” gun though it becomes a PLATFORMER-puzzle game with high emphasis on timing and precise jumps which i’m not fond of, luckily there is a mechanic with which you can skip SOME of the puzzles without which i wouldn’t beat this game. Play it only if you enjoy this type of game.

Glorkian Warrior: The Trials Of Glork is a yet another game i underestimated this month. It is kind of a Space Invaders but with some twists. It is actually an endless type of game but i consider it beaten cause i got all the unlocks. Solid fun for a couple of hours but then it gets quite repetitive.

Just Cause, at first i wondered how it relates to the monthly theme as a poor GTA clone but when you play it you quickly understand why… cause the only viable mean of transportation is a helicopter cause despite of a HUGE map it is actually a HUGE wasteland in terms of content. Sidemissions are all the same (there are 2 types: fetch/kill the random target and liberation of a settlement which are all pretty much identical), main story feels rushed, in fact the whole game feels incredibly rushed, it’s like they worked on a huge map for a couple of years and then needed to finish the rest of the content in a month, i’m actually kind of surprised that this game got a sequel. The only game without achievements that i consider COMPLETED insted of BEATEN cause i’m pretty sure i did everything i could in it. Overall it is not a good game and as many, many others suggest - play the sequel right away and don’t bother with it. Also the hook mechanic is barely working at all, it is SO disappointing.
