My life consists of various backlogs: this is one of them. Garcias’ profile
Goals of 2019:Spend more time playing games instead of on social networks.
Reach 100 games finished on Steam. (71 finished at the start of the year).
Play more games outside of Steam.
Main Quest #83 - 12 November 2019
I’ve got my hands on the second game recently so I decided to jump right in since it’s a good game to do exactly that: jump in and out whenever you want. It’s a decent sequel but nothing extraordinary.
Main Quest #82 - 03 November 2019
This was as short as it was disappointing. The puzzles made no sense and I didn’t learn a single thing about Franz Kafka. Only played because it’s a fast +1 to the list of finished games and because it was part of the monthly theme.
Main Quest #81 - 01 November 2019
October was horrible. It began alright, I was able to finish 3 games, but in the second half of the month I barely had free time. I had started 2 games for monthly theme (Black The Fall and Dead Island) and played like 2 hours of each. I had my last test of the month yesterday so I was only able to finish this one today (so it doesn’t count for the monthly theme, but that doesn’t really matter, since it’s still a -1 from the backlog).
But, about the game: I’m starting to feel a bit fatigated of these type of games, although short, they are nothing spectacular (but that’s also okay, since not everything must be top quality). But I really enjoyed the setting and dark atmosphere of Black The Fall.
Side Quest #11 - 13 October 2019
I got this game for free after the last bunch of Twitch Prime games from someone on Reddit who didn’t want it but since it’s a franchise I like and a game I wanted to play, I wasn’t going to say no just because it was on the Epic Store (although I do not support the exclusives type of business Epic is enforcing on PC, free games are always welcome).
Anyway, about the game, I bing-read the TWD comics this Summer when it suddenly ended so this basically summed up a few chapters where Michonne goes away. It was fine doing that but as a Telltale game, I feel like it’s where the problems started occurring. I haven’t (yet) played all of their games but I was kinda forcing myself to play this since it wasn’t anything spectacular and felt like a way to just attract comic readers to their games. I’m glad that I was able to play it after all this time, and I still look forward to knowing how Clementine’s story ends (I’ve only played the first two seasons), but this was nothing spectacular.
Main Quest #80 - 11 October 2019
I haven’t played many COD games in my life but I think I can say that this one has been my favorite till today. Apparently, I’m starting to really like anything WW2 related (COH before and now this one) and I’m getting interested in knowing more about it, so I kinda loved being able to play this since it was immersing enough to enjoy the whole campaign and (maybe) even try the multiplayer (which I rarely do). I don’t understand why this game got so many mixed reviews but since I’m easily entertained and enjoy the COD games so that might be why.
Main Quest #79 - 09 October 2019
A good game to play in a single night after a long day of work. It reminds me of Limbo because of the 2d design and platforming/puzzles but I prefered Limbo since it was a novelty. I don’t know what to say about it because it’s so short and shallow.
Main Quest #78 - 28 September 2019
The enjoyable conclusion to this trilogy of point and clicks! I quite enjoyed the miscellaneous “genres”/stories in each episode and the way it played more like an adventure game than a simple point and click game. Probably my last game for September. I haven’t been on the gaming mood much these lately days (hence the recent low effort assassinations), but today I downloaded and played Overwatch again and I’m having fun. It’s been a while since I’ve played a multiplayer game and had fun with it so we’ll see what’s next on my gaming time.
Main Quest #77 - 26 September 2019
Everything I said about the first game still applies here, although it was a bit better than its prequel. I liked the FMVs, the music and lightsaber mechanics, but it ends up being a forgettable game nowadays.
Main Quest #76 - 24 September 2019
Classic Sam & Max humor and gameplay here. It was nice to return to the same locations of the first game (after three years! Time does fly) and the humor was pretty good yet again. I’ve been in the mood to play point and click games so I’ll continue to do so while it lasts, and the next game I’ll play will probably be the third season of Sam & Max :D
Main Quest #75 - 21 September 2019
A decent point and click with a good plot, nice location design, and (two interesting playable) characters. The game has a few performance issues (random freezes) but apart from that, I had no issues.
