About me

I mainly play games for the story and I enjoy almost every type of game unless it’s too creepy or hard. My Main Quest consists of steam games, while my Side Quest includes every other pc platform. I have a MyVideoGameList where I keep track of all the games I’ve finished in my life.

Goals of 2019:

  • Spend more time playing games instead of on reddit and social networks.
  • Reach 100 games finished on steam. (71 finished at the start of the year).
  • Play more games on pc outside of steam.

Steam games finished since joining BLAEO:


Year Finished Added Balance
2016 21 65 +44
2017 20 74 +54
2018 18 88 +70
2019 13 13 0
Total 72 236 +166

Only the Adventure Mode completed. Didn’t touch the other modes.

The Last Shift

A little “game” that I got through Humble Monthly that required multiple playthroughs to get all the achievements. I don’t usually do that but since each playthrough was so short (around 1 hour) and the “game” was kinda cool it was easy to find time to do them all.

Main Quest #28 - 07 April 2019

L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire

8/10
about 39 hours playtime
44 of 60 achievements (73%)

One of the two games that I started and practically beat in February but didn’t because university started again and I couldn’t find time to do anything. Then, this weekend I just got back on it and kinda rushed the last Desk and finished the whole thing :)
The other game is BioShock 2 which I actually beat the main game and then started Minerva’s Den but I was kinda burned out on it so let’s see if I can finish it this month!

Main Quest #27 - 16 February 2019

Syberia 2

The puzzles got a bit non-sensical but other than that it’s more of the same of the first installment of the series.

Main Quest #26 - 15 February 2019

I actually quite enjoyed that. A little gem of a game. I was glad that I didn’t need to clear all the nests to finish the story since I was having a hard time with the last 2 or 3 - I felt like they were extremely hard at this point of the game (around 250/300k points) and was having a hard time doing them.

Main Quest #25 - 12 February 2019

Saints Row: The Third

Saints Row: The Third

6/10
about 17 hours playtime
18 of 83 achievements (22%)

Maybe it was the fact of having loved the second entry in this series but Saints Row: The Third actually kinda let me down. It’s a game that doesn’t take itself seriously but it feels a little unfinished, with some game-breaking bugs that made me repeat whole missions and some dialogue aspects and mechanics that didn’t feel quite where they should be. When it ended I was glad I was done with it to say the truth, and I don’t know if I’ll play the DLC’s later or not (since I’m not in the mood to play them now).

Main Quest #24 - 11 February 2019

Call of Duty: Ghosts

There’s nothing much to say about another COD campaign, except that this one was way shorter than I expected and that its’ ending was practically begging for a sequel that to this day we still haven’t got. And honestly, I don’t know if it would be any better if we did.

Main Quest #23 - 09 February 2019

Hitman: Blood Money

Hitman: Blood Money

8/10
about 14 hours playtime
no achievements

I won Hitman: Absolution won from sg in 2016 and recently got my hands on a Hitman (2016) copy for cheap so I had to get at least this one and play it before these two since I heard so many good things about it. And boy, was that great! I don’t really know how to describe Hitman: Blood Money: you are Agent 47 and are given several targets to kill (the story was ok, nothing out of this world imo) but the gameplay, different levels and the number of ways you could achieve your objectives was so great that it was just so enjoyable to play! Definitely looking forward to play the next entries in this series :)

Main Quest #22 - 08 February 2019

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™

Got it in a sale like 2 years ago for 2,5€ and finally played it in glorious full HD (I could play it in my laptop but only in low/med 30fps. feels good to be able to play in high fixed 60 fps now). Great gameplay, I literally feel satisfied while playing this game but after 20 hours I kinda got tired of it so I couldn’t make myself play through the DLCs (Lord of the Hunt and Bright Lord). One to return to, if I ever feel like to.

Note: We are just 6 weeks into 2019 and I’ve already played more hours than in the entire year of 2018. This is the consequence of two things: 1) I barely played anything in 2018 since I spent most of my free time outside of my house playing Pokemon GO or without my laptop (repair), and 2) buying a gaming desktop really helped me having fun playing games since they run so much better and smoother and “look” way better (I now play in a 21,5” IPS 1080p monitor instead of a 15,6” TN 720p) and it just feels so good. Plus, half of these 6 weeks I was/am in holidays between semesters so yeah :P

Main Quest #21 - 06 February 2019

Syberia

Syberia

7/10
about 11 hours playtime
no achievements

A fun adventure game that definitely shows its age. I quite enjoyed the voice acting and the setting that Syberia has, however, there are a few areas where the backtracking gets a little annoying but overall the storytelling clearly makes up for it.
