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

Not really what did I beat this month update, as I didn’t beat any game. More of I tried those games and did not like them one.

Now I play NightSky and it’s fine puzzle/physic game. So will be part of November update.

My overall progress did not change, as I play games with Family Share. So they do not count towards my profile progress.
I can always make progress with removing games from account :blobevil:

I saw photo in some medical article about simultaneous lung and liver transplant. And was like BP handle, stitch scissors, Spencer-Wells artery forceps, Lane toothed dissecting forceps… my new job has deteriorating effect on my brain :sweatsmile:

But it should give me ability to buy standalone PC soonish. So it’s not all bad. People are also friendly and cheerful, so it does not feel like hassle to go there.

Also only 2 more months till Christmas, time when I will be free to post All I want for Christmas and Last Christmas everywhere. Oh the joy.

Psychonauts worked at comfy 30 FPS. Rest of the games from this batched worked in 10 - 15 FPS range… when you get used to playing in FHD at 60 FPS you forget how slow games can run on weak PC configurations :hehe:

I tried to play Little Nightmares but it is unplayable with it’s low FPS. A Hat in Time works better, as I have 15 - 19 FPS most of the time (all graphic options turned off xD). Only occasionally, with more particle effects on the screen, I get drops to 5 - 8 FPS.

It’s hard to find cheap FreeSync monitor nowadays xD:

  • 27’ + FHD - not only I’d sit way too close to have 27’ monitor, pixels on such low resolution must be terrible
  • 24’ + FHD - a lot are on shitty TN panels, those that are on IPS or VA often do not have VESA mount, or have only one digital port
  • 24’ + 1440p - fonts may be small, and it would take away GPU power. Using FHD on 1440p monitor makes it a bit blurry

Wonder when they will release RX 3600, so I will be able to compare it to NVidia offer and start to plan PC set up :D
I also have growing list of games to beat, but my laptop will not allow me to play in any of them :sob: That’s painfull.

I get one game, and one DLC.

Borderlands series had really nice discount when you owned the previous games, so I grabbed bundle on Steam.
Kao 2 was free, and as Kao 1 was the first game I bought for my 1st PC - I had to add it. More because of the nostalgia than wanting to beat it. But I will try it soon. If not for this deal I would not even know this game has a sequel.

Note:


I didn’t beat a single game this month… on the positive side I get better job and rented a room, so I will have now more time to actually play games.

I removed few games, so my overall completion rate did not change. Even when I added more games than I’ve beaten :blobevil:

I will start with The Room 3 and try to beat all floors in Hammerwatch. I will also see if Kao the Kangaroo 2 works on my laptop.

I saw that RX 5700 is a really nice card, on pair with GTX 2060 Super and GTX 2070. So I will grab it, or RX5600. Depends on performance and price difference between custom variants.

I’m alive. Barely. With whopping 4h of sleep daily for past month, and working 12h per day :D

I will hopefully have more time now, so can play more games. Steam Sale is approaching and I still did not beat everything from previous Sale…

Pros:
- really good co-op experience
- involving story with twist at the end
- well implemented co-op mechanic
- only one player must own it

Cons:
- some delay problems on joining player side

Conclusion:

Story: "We must bust out of prison" game. One character is already inside, and wants to run away. Second character only arrived, but is sure they did not commit crime they were sentenced for. Which feels like typical scenario of all prison-action movies. They have their own personalities, which were written as "typical opposites" - calm and analytical vs aggressive and impulse driven. But it does not feel forced, they feel fleshy in what they do, and their actions are clearly justified by their past experiences. Game ends in a way I did not predict, and that it's strongest point for me. I did feel like literal shit during last sequence, and was like "yeah, yeah do it, I deserved it".

Gameplay: Split screen without need to sit on the same sofa. Only one player needs to own game, for both people to play. Which is neat. It is strictly co-op game, and is unplayable with only one player (AI won't control second character). Fact that screen is split in half all the time can be bit confusing though. Action-linear game, where we can do some small side activities. You can compete in throwing darts, play baseball, throw horseshoe, play music or just annoy your partner by not going towards objective. It's possible to interact with objects individually, and each character react differently. While one will open fridge and say there is nothing of value, other will open fridge, pick up beer and drink it. Talking with NPCs will result in different dialogues, depending who talk to NPC right now. It does help to flesh out characters and makes game really enjoyable. There are moments where cutscene is shared, and characters must pick what they will do. For example they enter elevator with guard inside. Try to talk your way out of it, or attack?

Graphic, music, bugs: I did not encounter any bugs in this game. Music is fitting, and graphic is fine. There are minor delays in transition from "shared cutscene" to "actual gameplay" for joining player. So while cutscene per se plays fine, then at the end I was stuck a bit on loading screen, while other character was already in-game, playing.

Side note:


First time in a long time my progress dropped, as I activated more than I beat. Lame. I play now in Angels with Scaly Wings and it’s nice game. But looks like I will need to replay it few times, to see all routes.

Bit cheated update, as i beat this game in March (today). But I do not want to have empty months in my spreadsheet, and writing one quick update is easier, than gathering few and then sit a lot to write reviews xD

I played a bit in Evolution:The Video Game beta when it was up, and it’s nice. But damn, I am bad at competitive games when I try to play online versus others xD

I was also trying Witcher: Adventure Game on GOG. It is nice, and as there is no real direct competition I don’t get annoyed when I play. Still, this game is so badly designed at times, like inability to hide card menu by simply clicking somewhere on the background, or pop up “tips” menu that can’t be turner off. Which likes to remind me every single turn I can use specific card.
