There is no trying. You do, or not! Mitsukuni’s profile

I’m a sucker for building-management-isometric triangle, I prefer medieval over modern, almost hate post-apocalyptic setting and generally hate horror as a genre (with indirect exceptions). I really loved FFXIV but had to request the deletion of my account because it was no good for my backlog. I play exclusively on Linux since 2020 and working on 3 games but haven’t released one yet.

Also, 100% Orange Juice is my relapsing addiction.

It’s nice to revisit Pripyat (hypothetically) though this game is not even as half brutal as Shadow of Chernobyl but more open world. Stalker series is a rare occasion for me where I actually loved post-apocalyptic setting. Still I hate mutant monsters and anomalies though. These games are unique and immersive, and sadly there are no other game like them. So if you like the idea, you should play them. With a fair warning since they are far from casual games. It’s beautiful as it’s brutal.

I actually played this 1 and half year ago but there were a couple DLC achievements left and I got the DLC at Winter Sale, and finally played it.

Senran Kagura series is brilliant beat’em’up games (unless it’s a spin-off) and everything is brilliant; gameplay, artwork, music, voice acting, everything. Some lewd jokes are teenage-y but they’re fun as well. Every character is unique and almost every one of them is likeable (sorry Imu). Very fun games. Unless you have a thing against lewd games, I definitely recommend them.

Continuing with my journey with Spellforce 3. This one is after the events of the main game. More RPG than RTS this time and pretty satisfying. Gameplay is more fluid than the main game as well. This time my favourite is Dark Elves, though I always liked them in the franchise. If you have an itch for fantasy / mythology RTS (like Age of Mythology) this game is definitely a great help to that. I feel like there were more dialogs than the first game though, hence the more RPG part. I would play a whole RPG Spellforce game like this, it was that good.

Now, it’s time for the other expansion.

Out of the trilogy this one has the best story telling and character development, and it’s about trolls. Gotta admit though, it started so slow, I bored to death in the first 4 hours and thought about quitting several times, glad I didn’t. As a faction, they are painfully slow to play however trolls are hard to kill too, I guess that makes it balanced. There were little details that make the game even more fun, like trolls have their own vocabulary and they talk with a broken grammar. Also one of the main characters has intelligence stats greyed out but he was learning things with experience. You definitely feel that developers poured their love to this game and it was a community’s wish.

The story is very indirectly related to main game and it’s so good that it is worth to play the first two games just for this. Looking at the achievement stats, only 12% finished the story so gonna call this an underrated gem.

If you like RTS games, this trilogy is a must. You won’t regret it.

Seeing things from another perspective… was a wild ride. While answering some questions, there were new ones that will be answered in the next chapters. I know the story from anime though but it was quite some time ago so I’m glad I don’t remember the details.

Great VN, great chapter. Greater with 07th-mod.

Looks interesting from afar however it’s way too simple to be enjoyable. Game design-wise really lacks on the achieving part. Mixture of Trine and Giana Sisters mechanics is tempting but whole gameplay system feels boring after a short time. I expect some level of complexity from an ARPG title and the game screams like it's made for consoles, I bet you would even play this on mobile without any frustration.

Anyway, another good-looking but boring game to add to my history.

One of the cutest games I’ve ever played. « cuteness overload »

It’s a little JRPG (technically KRPG since it’s from Korea ^^ ) with cute characters and plot twists inside plot twists. There are also three different endings, too bad there are no story related achievements. With a game like this there could’ve been plenty.

Even though it’s an indie title, every character has voice acting both in Japanese and Korean. English translation is mediocre but you get the point, if you know Japanese or Korean no problem though.

It has crafting, not just tools but also magic, training (be ready to see cute little push-ups) and fighting also increases your stats. Thanks to crafting, I was able to one-shot many bosses in the late game. :)

Soundtrack is great but artwork is godly, really liked it. The game’s physics engine sucks but you probably won’t mind it much, at least I didn’t.

While the game is cute, it can be brutal depends on your choices. I got the true ending but out of curiousity checked the bad ending and it was definitely not what I would expect. Length is satisfactory even though it’s kinda short for a JRPG title. Definitely worth to play. Awesome story, great lore you’ll pick up here and there, and an innocent romance journey for someone who lacks emotions as a deity.

Really enjoyed it. It was so cute. <3

Warship waifus at your service!
Story mode is more of a VN than a gameplay and battles are not so hard. Actual game part is after the story. It gets harder and sometimes requires a good strategy and constantly upgrading your items used on waifus. It gets boring after the completion of extreme battles so I don’t think so I will go for 100% achievements even though I’m so close. Maybe on the long run.

VN part was fun and voice acting is awesome.

Awesome RPG, great RTS. Spellforce 2 was kind of a let down over the first game and this felt especially great after that. Too bad they had to drop third-person view and I kinda understand the reason of that decision but I would love to walk in this game with a third-person view. There is a mod but not the same.

Anyway, the scenario is awesome, the story is awesome. Every dialog is voiced. Many plot twists and your choices affect your future. The maps are usually huge so it will be slow to walk around unless you find a certain trinket for your heroes and RTS gameplay was also kinda slow. As a Protoss lover from Starcraft, I loved the Elves here just like that.

I usually love defensive play and focus on economic advances first while playing RTS games but there was this “Foot of Barga Gor - Power Struggle” mission and it was constant fighting from the very beginning. Honestly f*ck that mission. One disappointment though, it’s not possible to play multiplayer without creating an account, not even skirmish with bots.

Also there is a version called "Versus Edition" which is a free to play version for multiplayer but somehow it also runs when you play campaign, so because of this it doubled my playtime in the last 2 weeks even though I didn't even open it.

Though, definitely recommend this game.

Awesome cyberpunk ninja simulator. Level design is top-notch, gameplay is fluid and enemies are tough. The game is difficult since you die with one hit but at least there are enough checkpoints so not that difficult.
Definitely recommend if you like the genre.

Thanks to Playing Appreciated and @MrD.

Unique game. You use one controller to control 2 characters. It was kinda painful time to time, at least it was short I guess. There were good parts but overall it was so so. Unique but not a good execution. Story wasn’t good either.

This is like serious version and a successor to Spore, though there is only the very first stage out yet. Still, it was fun and the game is promising. I loved the technical details and the biological depth of the game. I’m looking forward for the second stage.

Being playing since November and I must say I’m kinda sad that I discovered this so late. One of the best card games I’ve ever played, I would loved to see its prime days. Only down part is it’s online only and there is no way to play it offline. Recently I read on the forums that the game’s AI movements calculated on their servers and it is not possible on home PCs. Well, at this point if you are interested, be quick about it.

If I was playing this for years, I would go for 100% completion but I guess I have played enough and it’s kinda hard to find someone to play online, so that’s it for me. Fun time it was.

Permanently deleted games - Part 2: I went medieval on my library

After the enlightenment caused by Mskotor on my previous post, I decided that if I want to feel accomplished with this job, I could have make some sacrifices on the road. Since I played those games or was keeping them in my library as a part of nostalgia, I could’ve deleted them as well. Of course I’d like to keep them if it was possible but if one game prevents me deleting 10 other, I’d rather make a little sacrifice here. So I did. I have finally cleaned my library and this feels pretty good. I may have lost some good games like Hitman Absolution, Deus Ex Game of The Year Edition, Patrician III, Puzzle Agent, Wallace & Gromit, Bad Rats but it’s okay.

Now I can fully focus on my real library. As long as life lets me.

Permanently deleted 150 more games

Actually they should be more than that but Valve doesn’t allow to remove games separately if bought in a bundle. Still, feels light. My red list is much smaller now. ^^

Very cute game though the writing is one of the cheesiest ones I ever saw, could be fun for children I guess. The gameplay was simple and boring but at least it was a short game. I don't think I'll play this again or go for the second game.

It's not a bad game but not brilliant either. I guess I prefer good old point & click - read & decide Sherlocks. The game has awful amount of minigames but at least they put a skip option to almost every one of them (after a couple of fails). Some of them were quite good while a lot of them were just unnecessary so I skipped them. Optimization is pretty bad, loading times are long. You will often find yourself watching Sherlock Holmes travel.

My favourite game design goof: Watson has an X-ray vision. :)

The game runs on Linux good, cannot say it was great because of the bad optimization though.

I left this game for this long because I thought it was something like an MMO since it's a co-op game. I noticed that it can be played alone with AI though it was frustrating time to time. Still, it was like Dragon Age without tactics with Lord of the Rings lore. Kinda like a side story to it. It was fun and worth my time.

It doesn't work with Proton out of the box but it was fine with Proton Experimental, so it runs great on Linux with some tweaks.

I’ve been here for quite some time and I think I can finally start posting things since I have almost finished at least one kind of a list.
I started with negatives and I’ve been slowly working on them, for around 4 years. That’s also the time around I enacted my great purge (I permanently deleted ~400 games from my library via Steam Support). I did that because I don’t like to see something that’s not even a game in my library. Not every one of them was like that of course but I also deleted ones I thought that don’t worth my time. I used to (8-10 years ago) activate almost every key from bundles but with time they became an unwanted flock. Before they become a bigger obsession, I sent them to the shadow realm. I know they are not exactly permanently deleted but at least I don’t see them anymore which is enough for me. There is a saying here “Gözden ırak gönülden ırak”, roughly translates as “Away from eyes, away from heart”. Though Google Translate says “Out of sight, out of mind”, guess this has a better meaning in English but it loses the literature part. Anyway this exactly describes my situation.

I divided the ones I didn’t delete into two parts, which you can see in my lists. I try to give a chance to every game I didn’t delete but sadly there are games with overwhelmingly positive rating that I didn’t like. At least I tried them and know what kind of games they are. I feel like there are still games to delete but some of them cannot be deleted alone (Steam only allows you to delete games as packages, so if you bought them as a 3 games package, you cannot delete only one of them), because of this there are some games I couldn’t delete. Anyway, the lists are “Never Again” and “Leave in the Past”. I did this as a note for my future self, because I know I will forget (for reasons) some of them and will try to give a chance again (big mistake). So with the help of BLAEO, I will have a reminder to not to do that again. Never again means, “don’t play them ever” as it figures while “Leave in the past” is more like for dated games I used to play, but they still in the red group.

After around 30 games to test, I will finally finish my 4 years work and my backlog will finally be an organized backlog. :)
