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 platform on PC.

Haven’t played an AC games for years so I decided to play the next in line of the non-rpg games collection. I knew this one was highly praised but it had something I despised: the naval combat mechanics, which I already disliked when it appeared before. It was going great until I reached Sequence 9 and there was a mission that I simply could not pass. So I dropped it and watched the rest of the game on youtube. I’m marking it as beaten since it’s not one of the games that I would come back to and end later, those mechanics were simply atrocious in my opinion to ever pick it up again.
Other than that, it was still enjoyable to play as a “pirate” and navigate through the world with the boat. It was still an Assassin’s Creed game, which I enjoy.

Great game. The movies are not my favourite in the MCU, although I loved the last one, but this was pretty fun to play through! Really liked every character and planet, gameplay and soundtrack as well! Definitely recommended :)

Side Quest #19 - 29 March 2024

Great game. If it had released at it’s current state (after update 2.0), it would’ve been fantastic at launch.
I played Nomad and romanced Panam. I did pratically all the side jobs (missed around 5-10) but did all the main ones. Some great side jobs in this game! I pratically didn’t do any gig or NCPD scanner missions. Really liked the world building and atmosphere, ended up playing a bit more stealth-y (barely went guns blazing) but it was still fun to shoot and kill enemies in different ways.
Now to wait for a good geal to get Phantom Liberty!

Decided to play it before the servers shutdown on the 30th of this month since I’ve had gotten it for free. Can’t see what the deal with this one was, just another Ubisoft game with a bad story and acceptable gameplay.

Main Quest #179 - 5 November 2023

Haven’t played a NFS in ages and had the itch, so got this one on the Halloween Steam Sale for 3€. Not much to talk about it, just arcade racing, a “story”, if you can call it that, and a soundtrack that got tiring after 4 hours.

Main Quest #178 - 29 October 2023

Gotham Knights

Stopped playing it when there were only 5 hours left to finish it. I was extra-busy September because of work and too tired in the beginning of October, so I could finally get back at it now and finish it.
It was an okay game, I liked Gotham City although I only played with Nightwing, not sure about the other characters’ gameplay. Had some performance problems, some of the cutscenes felt laggy and blurry.

Great cyberpunk game. Top-Down Shooters is not a genre I usually play, but this was a blast to do so. Loved the world, atmosphere, soundtrack(!) and overall ambience of the game. It was really lovely to walk and shoot through this one.

Main Quest #176 - 16 August 2023

Hogwarts Legacy

This was pretty fun and oficially the longest game I’ve played, whatever that says about my gaming habits. Initially I was going for 100% but after 50 or so hours I dropped that idea and focused only on the quests (main, side and relationship). I still ended up 92% of challenges and level 38, which was quite a lot for the time.
The ending was a bit predictable and I tend to dislike the big ones with the passage of time, but it’s Hogwarts and a lot of fun nonetheless. I enjoyed the characters and the relationship quests as well, they bring the world together and I hope we see more of them in the sequel, in which hopefully they’ll decrease the amount of collectables and focus a bit more on the story and whatnot.

I ended up dropping Death Stranding (on Epic), I wasn’t finding it fun enough to keep playing.

Main Quest #175 - 07 January 2023

Beyond: Two Souls

Ended up not finishing any other game in December, but I also started Death Stranding on Epic. Finished this one up today, new GPU coming in the next week, lots of gaming programmed for the next few weeks!

I prefered Heavy Rain to this one. Initially I was a bit bored playing through Beyond: Two Souls, but ended up getting a bit invested on the characters of Jodie and Aiden, although the story was nothing spectacular. The performances and soundtrack helped a little.

I had watched a walkthrough for this one when it release on PS4, since it’s my favourite character and I had no consoles back then, but knowing it released on PC and it ran on my own, I had to get my hands on it and do everything I could. And it was great! Definitely worth getting and playing, it’s very fun just swinging through the city.

Slow year for PC gaming for me, this one. I’ve been reading more and playing more on the Switch, since the backlog was growind there as well, decided to get my hands on it. I’ll still try to play one or two more this month, but let’s see how it goes. I already installed Beyond Two Souls and I’ll start playing it today.
