Hoardz of gamez Mskotor’s profile

I try to get rid of my hoard of unplayed games. It's not much, but still it's some kind of backlog, right?

I give priority to my wins from SG, though it still can take me few months to beat long ones (like Fallout 4 or Skyrim: Legendary).

Also short legend on my scale:

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐ - game I really enjoyed. For either really good story or humor. It can has flaws, but they are minimal in comparison to fun I had with it

⭐️⭐⭐⭐☆ - game I enjoyed, but has it’s visible flaws that can make gameplay annoying. Or games with solid gameplay and good story, but without this something that would make me really enjoy it

⭐️⭐⭐☆☆ - starting point. Neither good or bad. Average story with average gameplay

⭐️⭐☆☆☆ - when game has average story, so I could beat it to see plot but it didn’t make me want learn more about characters or universe. Plus gameplay is so bad it make whole experience terribly annoying and irritating

⭐️☆☆☆☆ - only one type of games will get lowest note. Games that are unplayable or barely playable due to devs laziness. And their story is not interesting enough to push me into spending hours on the internet, finding a way to make it work. If game would be playable, but I wouldn’t enjoy plot or it’d have bad game mechanics it’d get 2 stars

I have question to you all: Does anyone own 14 / 15’’ 2 in 1 laptop?

I am thinking of grabbing one but I keep wondering if it’s something even I need. I wanted to buy graphic tablet at some point (like Wacom Intuos S / M) to edit some graphics from time to time. Nothing serious, more like scanning old parents / grandparents family photos and blurring tears that happened over the years to re-print later. Doing this with mouse was not ideal. With normal laptop I would still need to grab Wacom that is extra 50 pounds. And I would not be able to draw directly on the screen. Unless laptop does not work well as graphic tablet with GIMP or other free editing software.

But this is only use I can think of. I don’t use tablet, never had one and I think my 6’’ phone is perfectly fine on the go.

I don’t want to buy new one, just after lease stuff. Dell 7506 is like 600 pounds.

Are there any mayor disadvantages of 2 in 1 laptop vs normal laptop on the same price point? Considering they would have similar CPU.


I also started to play Moonlighter and it looks like such busywork…. same as Spiritfarer. I will beat Spiritfarer as it’s less tedious, but I will dump Moonlighter most probably. I tried Celeste but bounced back. Looks like Super Meat Boy.

This is first post that was generated by script I wrote. It’s interesting to see how many tedious tasks can be done with script written in some language. I knew we have BLAEO generators but I wouldn’t think it would be possible to basically make custom one for myself. I need to write actual review on my own but game information for banners is automatically downloaded from Steam.

Sadly last month gaming was not amazing, I feel like I wasted whole month on average and uninteresting games. But I bought 3 months of XboX Game Pass Ultimate for 1 pound and started to play Jedi Fallen Order. And I already like it. Parkour, simple puzzles, killing troopers with their own blaster shots, simple metroidvania elements. Star Wars Force Unleashed has similar vibe - mix of using powers to move through environment and lightsaber combat. And I liked it even when it was bit like interactive movie.

XboX app is still shit. This time I can’t even install game from it directly as it throws errors on me. I need to install games through MS Store. Error was introduced in update 9 months ago and is still not fixed :blobevil:

Also I just realized that it’s first month when I have nothing in “unfinished” category. Meaning I beat everything I started on Steam :spacecat:. Now I have 3 games in “didn’t start” category but they will wait most probably as I will focus for now on games from Game Pass.

I am playing Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain but it’s stupid checkpoint system makes it hard to play in short sessions. I may play longer section that won’t have a checkpoint, had to close game as I need to run to work. And then when I start game later I need to re-play this part, as I was not lucky enough to trigger a checkpoint… Ugh.

Because of this I was sitting more on Python than playing really. Hence only one beaten game. But really, checkpoints are bad enough in corridor games. Checkpoints in open world game without giving player ability to have even one manual save? This is ridiculous. Same as number of times Kojima wants to shove his name on the screen in this game :hehe: Game starts with credits, and then they want to roll mini credits on each mission start / end >_>

I saw banner on Sharky post which turned out to be iterated from Lengray post. I tweaked it up a bit. I didn’t know that you can do this kind of thing with simple HTML before. BLAEO doesn’t support CSS so I never went into trying to make simple banner.

I started to learn Python so I’m surprised I managed to beat that much last month (I’m not super consistent with it though :hehe:). I made a list after Winter Sale with games I have and that it would take me most probably whole year to go through them. We’re just done with Q1 of the year and I already beaten 7 / 15. So looks like I may beat those by the half of the year. So I may buy something during the Summer Sale after all :D

Also I went ahead and incorporated more game dissection in this review. Night in the Woods doesn’t fit into it so it has “normal” review. But I like how it turned out to be. Some summary of points that repeat in nearly all my reviews and optional extra text under if some aspect doesn’t fit - like broken money economy in GTA V.

Normally Wolfenstein II would be a 4 star game. But level of bugs and problems player can find in 3 year old game is not acceptable. I was able to get past them but from what I saw in the Steam discussions not everyone is.

I keep having problem with my completion percentages, as site shows I have 0% in unplayed. Looks like percentage is so low it’s just rounder to 0. I keep adding this 1% as I do have some games to beat, but then I need to remove 1% from other stat, as otherwise it would sum to 100%.

Also since start of the year I started to think that in my reviews I mostly dissect games. I take them and grade them in RPG-oriented way. I can’t just write 2 sentence review that “game was nice :D”. My mind is bombarded that “inventory was awful”, “minimap was hard to follow”, “physic is off in this part of the game”. Sometimes it feels like surgeon that would get fixated on some vein and not realize that patient is already half-dead from the blood loss. When I read other people reviews I do think they are nice. Still I would not be able to write like that. It’s too far off from my analytical-observatory character. So sorry for anyone who’d want to see general description and I focus whole paragraph why inventory on “Witcher 3 is shit IMO” :P

Also anyone else finds it weird that putting game on any lists automatically opens up it’s steam page? I already get reflex of having fingers of CTRL+W to automatically close it before it clutters my tabs in the background.

At first I wanted to go right back to the Disco Elysium to play it in different way. But I was quite happy with the ending I get, and I would not like to see it in “bad cop” version. Plus I don’t want to spend next 30h replaying the game game straight away. So it will need to wait.. for later.

We have snow in UK. Like actual snow, not pitiful 3cm of snowfall that we had before. Which melted on the same day. Now it’s 3rd day with a snow outside. And it’s not a catastrophe, like some people were telling me before I came here. “Schools are closed when there is even a bit of snow”, “public transport shuts down”, “not possible to go to work” they said. Bullshit xD They surely have more problem inland in more rural areas, but London is perfectly fine.

Snow is surely less of an enemy to the trains than swans are, as when swan was on the track trains were cancelled for 2h. Normally you’d just kick swam in the butt and chase it off. But noooo. Royal Animal. So they can’t simply chase it off. Which means disaster on the whole line :hehe: Shows what happens when religion or stupid tradition is more important than rational thinking.

Winter Sale 2020 update


I bought literally nothing this sale. Not on Steam, not in other shops:

1) I saw that none of the games on sale have bigger discounts than during past Summer Sale. Or last Winter Sale. So there is no feeling of “oh nice discount, I need to have it”
2) I went through Steam, Epic, GOG etc. and checked how long it would take me to beat the games I have, with the amount of gaming I was doing recently. And calculator said I have enough games for at least 9 months :ok_hand:

So I will just list one game I get as a gift this sale, and games that I have on all the platforms as “to beat in 2021” guide. Add gameplay time from HLTB

December update

Over all back log prog ress :
27% completed
58% beaten
1% unfinished
1% never played
13% won't play

End of the year 2019 stats


  1. Beaten 28 games:
    • 1 Uplay game
    • 1 Android game
    • 9 Xbox Game Pass games
    • 18 Steam games
  2. Favorite game beaten in 2020: Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  3. Worst game beaten in 2020: The Division
  4. Longest game beaten: Pillars of Eternity - 59h
  5. Shortest game beaten: What Remains of Edith Finch - 2h
  6. In 2019 I’ve beaten 19 games - 9 less than in 2020
    • I bought PC in Jan 2020, which finally gave me ability to play games normally
    • working the afternoon shift leaves me with just a bit of time in the morning and in the late evening - which is not good for longer games

Methodology:

  • games bought before Steam Winter sale 2019 count as added in December 2019
  • games bought from start of Winter Sale 2019 to the end of January 2020 count as January 2020 additions

I do buy games during winter sale to beat them next year, so it makes most sense.

Green columns shows games beaten on Steam, blue on other platforms. They are stacked, so in March I’ve beaten 2 games on Steam, and 1 somewhere else.


I also made graph that shows my progress from the time I started to write down my percentages

Great purge is a time when I removed, in a span of 3 months, 59 games from my account (I was close to 500, so it was more than 10% of my library). It was also time when I really sorted my library and moved a lot from unfinished to won’t play. I removed few at the end of 2020 as well, so 3 years later I’m still barely above 500 games owned :D

I barely bought any games this year, and when I did summary of what I have still to play I also did not buy anything during Winter Sale, as I decided I have more than enough games to play till at least Summer Sale. If not longer.




November 2020 update

I will go home for Christmas after all :D Well, we will have X-mas dinner early but it was the same last year. My manager told me it’s fine to make test before coming to work, and if it’s negative I don’t need to quarantine. They also dropped lockdown in the UK today ( the day I fly out), so no idea if there will be even requirement for quarantine when I will be back. They were writing something about after-coming testing to shorten it. But as always with British gov - everything takes forever. And they can’t even say what their plan will be in 2 weeks. Like with Brexit. We will see. But lack of clear communication is bad. Just like people in Poland learned 2 days before All Saint’s Day that graveyards will be closed this year. 10/10.

I did buy Wolfenstein 2 this autumn sale, mostly as I will have now time off. Not around January. But I will count it towards any games I will buy during winter sale.
