Killing Report • May '19

First, I hope everyone has had a good month. I don't have much to show in terms of beaten/completed games as most of my time was spent in Steep, .hack//G.U. Last Recode, Watch_Dogs and Animal Crossing New Leaf. Anyway, here is what I have to say about those I played through.

Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2  Superior to the first game (which I loved), the story has a better pace, there's more action and the graphics and music are great.

The Journey Down - Chapter 2  A very funny second part, I really liked the story. The graphics, however, seem to be from 15 years ago.

Mario Kart 73DS  The classic recipe still works very well. There are 32 tracks to choose from and the additions are very nice.

Killing Report • April '19

This time, I'm posting my monthly update a day early since I'm not going to beat any new games. April has been pretty great and I've bought more 3DS games. Last month I wrote that I only wanted to add a few more games to my collection. I've bought ... 16 more, to my wife's dismay. Now the only one I've left to get is Metroid: Samus Returns but it's still expensive in the second-hand market. I've also spent about 10 hours playing through Steep's X-Games and Olympic DLCs.
As a not-so-good conclusion, I was playing with my kids two days ago when I fell on a large concrete slab and broke a rib. It's not serious if I rest but it's damn painful. I was off work this week anyway but I wanted to be out and about and now I have to be careful of my every move.

Super Mario 3D Land3DS  A superb entry in the series and the 3D effect really shines in it. It's a little short, not very difficult but it has great level design.

Mass EffectOrigin  What else can I say that hasn't already been said? A truely great game which has aged very well (except for the Mako controls).

Professor Layton And the Unwound FutureDS  I really liked its puzzles and story, even though it drags on a bit in the last part. The end is heart-wrenching!

Old Man's Journey  Played it in one sitting, the game slowly grew on me. The story is the standard emotional one but the "puzzle" gameplay felt original.

Killing Report • March '19

In March, I went completely crazy. I bought 30 Nintendo 3DS games! Over the previous months, I had sold stuff I didn't need and decided, since the 3DS is almost at the end of its life, to buy the best games the system has to offer. So I made a big list and started to look for them on the second-hand market. I spent countless hours browsing sites, contacting people, negociating, sometimes meeting the sellers and it became an addiction. I just had to get one more from the list. I even bought a second SNES Edition New 3DS XL that I found in mint condition for cheap. So that's where I am, with still a few games I'd like to get. On the upside, the whole thing has rekindled my love for physical console games (I hate the eShop) and they just look damn nice together! I got a 3DS last year but I hadn't found serious time for it, except when I borrowed Pokémon Sun from my son for a while. But I've realised I absolutely adore this system. At the moment, I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. If you are curious about the games I got, here is a pic of the collection.

Being a Nintendo fan, I've also started playing old emulated games from the DS and GameCube and set up my Wii controllers on my computer so I can play the Wii games I don't own. I barely touched Steam in March and my backlog has once again exploded but I don't regret what I've done.

SteepUplay  A phenomenal winter sports game. Plenty of events to do and places to discover, great physics and free roam is spectacular.

Endless OceanWii  A game I'd bought for my son which I ended up playing myself. It's nice for a while but too slow and shallow ;) for my taste.

Mario Kart Double Dash!!GameCube  A great Mario Kart game. Two-person karts are refreshing but winning on higher difficulties still relies too much on luck.

Killing Report • February '19

Well, it's been a pretty good month. Once again, I spent most of my gaming time in ESO but I've finally managed to complete The Fruit of Grisaia and made the most of the Origin Access promo featured at the end of January (1 month for 0.99€). I've also finalized my monthly post formatting to keep it concise and easy to read.

The Fruit of Grisaia  It took me a few months to read through all the routes of this extremely long VN but it was well worth my time. It's amazing!

The Leisure of Grisaia  A dispensable addition to the main game. It's extremely short and doesn't bring anything new. For fans only.

Eventide 2: The Sorcerer's Mirror  While the story was quite generic (but fine for the genre) I was quite surprised by the great quality of the cinematics.

UnravelOrigin  An adorable game from Sweden. The puzzles and the platforming are spot-on and the soundtrack gave me goosebumps.

FeOrigin  Another game from Sweden but a 3D platformer this time. It's gorgeous but a little too cryptic for my taste.

Killing Report • January '19

January has been a pretty good month. I've got back to playing ESO and my playtime got a little out of control but I like how the game has evolved recently. I also got around to playing and beating games which have been in my backlog for a long time so that's that.

Gas Guzzlers Extreme  A surprisingly great racing game with plenty of tracks, funny AI names and devastating weapons. Mario Kart for Real Men™.

Bully: Scholarship Edition  A good title which hasn't aged very well. The missions are fun but some are a tad too disconnected from the plot.

The Elder Scrolls Online  I'm really getting into the game now. This month, I've beaten the main quest, the mages quest line and brought my first character to CP 60.

Killing Report • December '18

First of all, I hope you're having a good cosy end-of-year holiday and wish you all a happy new year when it comes. I've had quite a bit of free time this month and most of my playtime was spent playing great titles. I've also beaten another of my Wii game, which I meant to do for a few months.

ICEY  Though it had its moments, I felt this game was just okay. The sci-fi setting is nice but the game is ultimately too short and repetitive.

Orange Moon  Another dispensable sci-fi shooter. The gameplay is a tad too slow and imprecise and everything feels stiff.

Far Cry 3  Oh boy did I like this one. I really enjoyed the story (though a bit far-fetched), hunting, the challenges and clearing out all the outposts. Time well spent!

Civilization: Beyond Earth  Though not as complex as Civ V, it still has a lot to offer and playing in a sci-fi setting is very refreshing.

New Super Mario Bros. WiiWii  I enjoyed this one in every way. It felt a little more difficult than other Mario games I remember.

Killing Report • November '18

It's been great month, especially since I played through Memory's Dogma, which is now one of my favourite VNs. The funny thing is that I chose to play that one because I was away and it was the only short game I could decently play on my very weak netbook laptop thingy.

Memory's Dogma CODE:01  An excellent VN with surprising plot twists. The soundtrack is so good that I bought it (which I hardly ever do).

Age of Wonders III  A great 4X game more focused on combat than most. The campaings are very lengthy and the challenge is very progressive.

Distraint 2  Bought, played and beaten on release day. I had enjoyed the first one a lot and the sequel is just as good.

Phoning Home  A nice mix between an exploration and a puzzle game. The story is okay but the game felt like a long escort mission.

Shadow Warrior  A good game if you're in the mood to slash through waves of enemies. However the story is weak and the game very repetitive (but fun!).

Killing Report • October '18

This month, the weather's been pretty good and I spend a little less time playing games and a little more enjoying the fresh air. Only a few games beaten but I enjoyed them all very much.

Distance  A superb racer which feels like TrackMania in many ways. Challenging, fast and a pleasure for the eyes. Just what I needed.

A Hat in Time  This one is a great platformer. It's fun, the voice acting is amazing and it never feels boring. The DLC, on the other hand, I didn't like at all.

The Lion's Song  A very good point & click which feels like a VN. The first episode (which is free) is weaker than the rest though.

Killing Report • September '18

Once again, only a few games beaten but the games I played were very diverse and completely got hooked on Drakensang despite its old-school controls and blocky graphics.

Tomb Raider  A great game! The action is fast, the exploration is extensive (though there are too few tombs to find) and I loved that cinematic feel.

Drakensang  A very lenghty RPG which has that cluncky old-school feel. An enjoyable experience if you can get past the first few hours.

Endless Fables  This one is not a good HOG. The story felt all over the place and the collectables didn't make sense at all.

Killing Report • August '18

Not much gaming this month but I've finally came round to playing The Banned Saga which I loved very much. I also have 2 & 3 in my backlog but I'll wait for a while to play them.

The Banner Saga  I love this game! The art is amazing and since I like games in Nord settings, this one was right up my alley.

Submerged  A gentle game. Not combat or violence in there but plenty of exploration, climbing and a deep sense of serenity.

Ziggurat  A good procedurally-generated shooter.
