September’s Stats

aka. Not much to report

Hello fellow assassins, and happy October! Hard to believe it’s already there in this messed up year that is 2020. Not much in this report, I played quite a few really good games this month, but only finished one. For all the roguelike lovers, I couldn’t recommend you enough to go play Hades if you haven’t already. Other than that, I managed to not add much to the backlog either (or did I? I caved and got a lot of Game Pass, which is the Shrodinger’s cat of backlog.) Anyway, I hope you’re all well and will have a nice October. Are you planning on playing your horror games this month?

Spiritfarer

39 hours playtime, 38 of 39 achievements

I really loved the game. It's probably one of my favourite I've played this year. You play as Stella, a new spiritfarer who's gonna take care of spirits on her boat until they're ready to move on to the next step of their afterlife. The game is a really nice combo of farming/crafting/fishing, quite some exploring, building and improving your boat and of course finding more about the spirits you get to befriend. I thought the game was giving an interesting approach to the theme of death and grieving without being overly dramatic. It hit me right in the feels while still giving happy and peaceful vibes. Loved it.

August’s Stats

aka. Another small victory

Another busy month IRL but I managed to cram more gaming time than in the first part of summer, and finish a few games, plus play a lot more of some others. I hope your summer went well and you’ve been playing interesting games. Stay safe and see you in a month.

Okayish but pretty repetitive and unoriginal when it comes to stealth mecanics. I ended up not even going back to check the special movie themed levels I unlocked via collectibles, even though I had planned to. Unless it's already in your backlog and you have nothing better to play, I'd say pass.

GRIS

5 hours playtime, 10 of 17 achievements

The most beautiful looking game I've played in a long while. It's a game about loss and grief so it might not be the happiest one, but it's soothing, relaxing and a great visual adventure. Definitely a strong recommend.

The Adventure Pals

11 hours playtime, 27 of 31 achievements

A really fun and colorful action plateformer with a bit of RPG flavor. I loved it more than I thought I would, maybe because I wasn't expecting much. The whole thing can be played in co-op too, and it seems like it could be a lot of fun.

A Case of Distrust

2 hours playtime, 10 of 10 achievements

An underwhelming disappointment from what I was expecting. Visually it was as good as what I thought, as I love that stylized minimalist art style. Sadly, the story was very cliché. It only took me 2 hours to finish it, and yet I felt it was already dragging. Meh.

Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure

2 hours playtime, 3 of 26 achievements

A dodgeball game, not much to say except it's fun to play, but I'm sure it would be a lot more fun with friends.

Dropsy

4 hours playtime, 30 of 30 achievements

Well, THAT was a surprise. With a clown as the protagonist, I was expecting some horror freak show, especially from some of the creepy visuals I had seen. The game is actually a mix between super sweet and super creepy stuff but not in the way I expected. I actually ended up being quite attached to the clown (she never said ever). A great point and click with the Devolver Digital twist on the cuteness. Recommended.

July’s Stats

aka. The backlog is lava

Busy and stressful month IRL, so not much has been done except games that can keep my brain distracted. Hence a lot of roguelikes and a lot of Terraria. Also, there were too many good bundles recently and coupled with the sales… my backlog got fed way too many games. I hope you’re all doing ok and staying fresh and safe.

Hidden Folks

10 hours playtime, 8 of 8 achievements

The devs added some content so I revisited Hidden Folks. I loved the new music related levels, still strongly recommend this game. Note that now all the DLC content is included in the base game.

Monster Train

18 hours playtime, no achievements

A great addictive deckbuilding roguelike. A bit similar to Slay the Spire, but different enough to make it very addictive on its own merit. Bought it during the summer sale and put quite a lot of time in it this month. Will definitely play some more in the future.

Devolverland Expo

2 hours playtime, 22 of 22 achievements

If you haven't heard about this Devolver promotional game, I recommend you give it a try. It's free on steam and it's fun to play and well thought for an alternative to presenting their new and upcoming stuff since all the conventions this year were cancelled. I hope more publisher would do something like that.

Griftlands

13 hours playtime, no achievements

Another great roguelike I got during the sale, the latest Early Access from Klei arrived to Steam. It's already really good and enjoyable as it is, even though it's still worked on. A lot of story and choices to make, deckbuilding combat and "negociation" and overall great style. What more can I say except that it's really good.

Iris and the Giant

11 hours playtime, 5 of 16 achievements

Yet another roguelike from last year that I've been playing on and off in the past months and I finally manage to beat. I love the very minimalistic art style, the deckbuilding mecanics and the progression system. It's also interesting that the theme of this game is about a little girl's inner struggle with mental illness, which is original enough in those kind of games to be noted. Another recommended game.

June’s Stats

aka. A Fragile Balance

Pretty unproductive month in the backlog fight, mostly because I played WAY too many demos (and I’m really looking forward to Grounded later this month) and games I’ve already finished (Terraria, I’m looking at you). At least I managed to keep the additions tamed (but the sales are not over so who knows what next month report will look like) too so the balance is neutral. I can’t believe we’re already midway through 2020 (even though it already feels like an eternity of crappy things happening). For now I don’t have much plans for the summer with the current situation so maybe I’ll get some gaming done. To see if any progress is made with the backlog is another story. I hope you all have a wonderful July!

My Jigsaw Adventures - A Lost Story

10 hours playtime, 32 of 32 achievements

Simply a jigsaw game but a pretty good one. Beautiful original art, lots of options... one of the best of the genre I've tried.

Summer in Mara

29 hours playtime, 51 of 53 achievements

A nice crafting/exploring/farming game. It reminded me a bit of My Time in Portia but with a better story and exploration experience, while having a less complex crafting system (in the sense of crafting is instant so it's less planning). The game is not perfect, but the devs seem to be working on fixing and improving it. They already released a great quality of life patch but weirdly it also added some annoying small glitches that were not present in the pre-release version. Hopefully they'll take care of that soon. I loved the wholesome story, cast of NPCs and feeling overall, as well as the design. I'll recommend it but maybe wait at least for the next patch to play it for those annoying glitches to get fixed.

Feather

20 minutes playtime, 1 of 1 achievement

A bird simulator where you can fly around on an island... It was nice but there is no real objective or goal and once you've explored you're pretty much done. In the same style, I preferred playing Copoka or AER, but it's a nice short experience.

Glass Masquerade 2: Illusions

18 hours playtime, 40 of 40 achievements

They added a few free puzzles to promote the DLCs. More of the same.

Wintermoor Tactics Club

11 hours playtime, 24 of 29 achievements

Greatests game in the genre I've played in a long while. Reminded me of Final Fantasy Tactics but with a fun parody theme. Great art, great writing and cool gameplay that was a mix of Turned based tactics fights and interactive VN storytelling. A++, strongly recommended.

Summer Paws

2 hours playtime, 23 of 23 achievements

Recommended to those who love cats & liked Hidden Paws and Hidden Paws Mysteries. Prettier than the previous ones, and they fixed the motion sickness enducing camera movements.

The Flower Collectors

2 hours playtime, 8 of 13 achievements

Great story and historical background, great art style, unperfect gameplay, but most of all very high price tag for a 2h long game. Recommend if discounted or bundled though.

April’s Stats

aka. Backlog explosion

April is always awful for my backlog, and this year was no exception. Actually, I spent even less time playing this month even though I’m still stuck at home. Or rather, I’ve played quite a lot of things but finished very little of them. I’ve seen a lot of assassins have made huge progress due to the current situation, so congrats to all of you who did, and for the ones that are in my case, do not despair, things are what they are :) I just hope all of you and your loved ones are safe right now. Take care and have a good month!

Clearly my most intense addiction these days. I had forgotten how good this game was (I hadn't play since the early days) and it has evolved a lot since then. I loved rediscovering everything and I have Skatrzoo to thanks for that (and blame for the addiction). I got myself the Bad Seed DLC, which is a nice addition but also harder than the base game. I still have a lot of hours ahead of me, so it'll probably appear in the played list of the upcoming months. Strong recommend for anybody who like satisfying roguelikes that play like a metroidvania.

Cyrano Story

48 minutes playtime, 10 of 13 achievements

A weird ARG that I only played to try and get a key for Moons of Madness, which I didn't after about 15 attempts, but Kaleith was nice and gave me his own key. I'm not gonna pretend I would have figured out what to do without a guide, that thing was way too complicated for my logic.

A Fold Apart

4 hours playtime, 6 of 6 achievements

A cute and original puzzle game based on paper folding mecanics. It tells the story of a couple confronted to the problems of a long distance relationship. I really liked the game but it's only 3h long and the full price they ask for it is a bit steep. Keep an eye on it discounted if you like puzzles though, it's worth playing.

March’s Stats

aka. Weird times are upon us

How is it going guys? I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well. Like a lot of people right now, I’m confined at home so at least there is time for the backlog. It was my last month of Xbox pass and I managed to play Final Fantasy XV and then try a few more games. At least now I know that Ori 2 and Indivisible are not really for me. I also started Metro Exodus and liked what I played of it, but didn’t have time to finish it, especially because I went back to Dead Cells and I’m addicted to it again (I blame Skatrzoo for this). Anyway, I just hope you’re all staying home for those who can, and staying safe for those who still have to work in those weird times. Let me know how you’ve been dealing with the situation, depending on what measures your country has been taking. And game on!

Monster Hunter World - Iceborne

372 hours playtime, 71 of 100 achievements

Finished the main story of the Iceborne DLC in coop with girlfriend. The DLC is definitely worth the money, as it adds a lot of content and new monsters. As for the base game, the story itself has little interest, and hunting with friends is where it's at. Will probably put some more hours into it in the upcoming month. Recommended for all those who liked the base game.

Hidden Through Time

4 hours playtime, 16 of 19 achievements

Pretty much a clone of Hidden Folks, with added color and a level editor, by a totally different studio. It's not a bad game and if you liked Hidden Folks and want more, have a look at it, but the original is better.

Final Fantasy XV

36 hours playtime, 43 of 59 achievements

That was my "big" project for March, to finish this before my Xbox pass expired. It was an okay game, and it might be only me who's burned out of the Final Fantasy franchise, but I wasn't too excited by the story itself. It was nice driving around the open world, discovering places and fishing, but I wouldn't really recommend the game at full price. At least the combat was more dynamic than in old school FF games (but I prefer the gambit system from FF12).

February’s Stats

aka. So many games, so little time

Soooo… Hum… clears throat Hello, I’m Sheepy and I felt back into my old MHW addiction… bows head in shame I was “blaming” it on my GF’s recent addiction to it but truth is that I have fallen back into it and used the awesome excuse to play together for buying Iceborne and getting back into the hunt. I REGRET NOTHING. It’s been really good to go back to it, and play both with GF and the friends I played the base game with. The backlog fight, on the other hand, has taken a hit because of it. That coupled with the fact that February was very full IRL, I didn’t finish much this month, but I had a lot of fun so I guess that’s it. What about you fellow assassins? How was your February?

My favourite discovery of February (and of 2020 so far). A short but beautifully crafted P&C/puzzle game with beautiful design, animation and soundtrack. Made by a little indie team that poured all their hearts into it. Strongly recommended.

The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game

42 minutes playtime, 6 of 6 achievements

Short and cute P&C (under an hour long) with a very basic visual style where you play a frog detective and get to solve a short mystery.

January’s Stats

aka. A good start for a brand new decade.

Hello fellow Assassins, how has your january been? For me, a lot of great games have been played, and added quite a few to the backlog too, resulting in a super small victory to start the year but a victory nonetheless. I’ve shortened my reports and even considering cutting them off completely in the future, but feel free to ask any questions if you wanna know more about a specific game I’ve been playing. I hope you’re all having a good start of 2020, until next time.

Hidden Paws Mystery

3 hours playtime, 15 of 15 achievements

Short but cute hidden object. More of the same compared to the first one, but without the motion sickness due to the camera, so a great improvement. Looking forward to their summer themed one.

A Plague Tale: Innocence

13 hours playtime, 25 of 35 achievements

Such a great game, both naratively and visually. I really loved this game despite a few annoying things, a strong recommendation. Especially if you have the xbox PC pass, it recently been added to the list of games.

The Gardens Between

2 hours playtime, 17 of 17 achievements

Such a beautiful puzzle game. It's pretty short but it's so pretty with great puzzle mecanics. Recommended to all puzzle lovers, a real eye candy.

The Stillness of the Wind

3 hours playtime, no achievements

More an experience than a game itself, but you should try it for yourself as it's really short.

Please, Don’t Touch Anything

1 hour playtime, 11 of 15 achievements

It gave me more of a "try anything with that object" feeling than a puzzle game, and after a while I needed to check a guide for the few endings I was missing. Interesting experience.

Gorogoa

1 hour playtime, 8 of 11 achievements

Another beautiful game with clever puzzle mecanics, another strong recommend for puzzle lovers.

Yoku's Island Express

7 hours playtime, 17 of 31 achievements

A really fun pinball plateformer (yes, you read correctly. They define it as a pinballvania, and it's pretty accurate) with lovely colorful graphics. I loved it more than I thought I would even though it had been recommended this game, as I, in turn, recommend it to all of you.

A Long Way Down

5 hours playtime, 5 of 9 achievements

Still in Early Access, this game has a great potential as an addicitive roguelike deckbuilder. It already has enough content to be enjoyable but is not fully finished yet, as the team is aiming for a full release for May-June of this year. Keep an eye on it if it's your sort of game, it could be a really good one.

A Year of Backlog Fight in Review

It took me long enough but I finally managed to scrap this 2019 summary post together before the end of January. It was mostly for stats and an easy way to lookback purpose, but it actually made me realize I didn't do as bad as I thought I did Scratch that, I made a mistake copy pasting, I did as poorly as I thought. I didn’t finish as many games as in 2018, while I added less than half to the backlog than I did in 2018. So I guess this is something. Also, I changed the format of my favourite games I was applying the previous year to something a little more eye candy and a lot less text. Anyway, off with the nonsense chatter and on with the stats…
