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. I have a RAWG profile where I keep track of all the games I've finished in my whole life.

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 #61 - 18 August 2019

Mad Max

Mad Max

8/10
about 20 hours playtime

I haven’t watched the Mad Max movies even though they’ve been on my watchlist for a few years now, but I had great fun with the game. The wasteland is beautiful and the game runs great at maximum settings and locked fps, the combat while in the cars was great but in the ground was nothing out of this world (very similar to Batman Arkham or Shadow of Mordor games). Definitely recommended for the low price it runs on these sales nowadays.

Main Quest #60 - 13 August 2019

911 Operator

I don’t have much to say about 911 Operator but it was a good management/simulation game and it did what it promised to do. There are also some funny calls that kinda break the tension during each duty.

Main Quest #59 - 10 August 2019

My first target down thanks to Play or Pay. I heard great things and the game was great indeed. I believe I watched a playthrough of this when it launched but having played it now I certainly didn’t remember its ending.

Main Quest #58 - 09 August 2019

Borderlands: Game of the Year

Now that I finally had some free time I tried to play a bit more of Borderlands with kubikill, since we’ve started playing a little more than a year ago. And guess what! We were only an hour and a half of beating it! This is one of the oldest games I have and played on my account, and it’s great having finally played it.

Main Quest #57 - 08 August 2019

So a month after my last update I finally returned. I was on a trip for a week, and after I returned home I had some familiar and university/work problems I had to attend to. So, after all that was solved I was so worn out that I had no energy to play for a while, but now I’m back and ready to play some games. I’ve enrolled myself in a little project called “Play or Pay” since it moved to a quarterly operation. I already have my games chosen for August/September/October, so we’ll see how it goes!
Now about the game, ever since I’ve played Fallout Shelter that I wanted something similar and recently this year this game was on a bundle somewhere so I had to get it. The game kinda stole my computer time this last four days and it was really thrilling to play and deal with all the stuff that was happening, but after a while, you get used to the mechanics of the game and it’s easy peasy!
I’ve also recently passed the 3-year mark on BLAEO and it’s stuttering how fast the time flies. Here’s to another 3 years and hopefully more games beaten!

Main Quest #56 - 08 July 2019

Technically I finished this on Sunday the 7th but since it’s already 00:07 and only now the credits finished rolling I’ll consider it finished on the 8th of July. Ever since I’ve played the first game I wanted to know more about Max and Chloe, which this game certainly helped doing, so I’m glad I finally was able to play through it. I really enjoy these types of games and this was no exception. Although I actually didn’t remember almost anything from the first game (my memory is really really horrible), this was a good adventure and a good time spent. I also played through the extra episode (called “Farewell”) and even though I knew what was coming, its’ ending still broke me.

Main Quest #55 - 07 July 2019

And with this one chapter finished, another trilogy of point & click games is done. Although the focus of The Journey Down was the story, here it is not: the focus is the British humor and dialogue, which are very enjoyable and one of (if not the) main reasons to play this.

Main Quest #54 - 06 July 2019

Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3

The graphics were great and so were the gameplay and gunplay: the improvement is easily noticeable. I do feel like it was a proper ending to the trilogy but, at the same time, it also left something to desire. In general, Max Payne is a great trilogy of games with it’s high and lows. Glad I was able to enjoy it!

A great conclusion to the story of The Journey Down. A pretty fun point and click in which each chapter has different locations and it is possible to see how long of a journey it was to create the whole story.

Same as the first one, it just keeps getting crazier and crazier.
