Cube Link
Playtime: 37 minutes
Achievements: 8 of 8 (100%)
Review: It is an OKish puzzle game with 40 pretty simple levels. What leaves a sour taste in my mouth is that there is a Linux depot but it is empty for a long time already. It doesn't claim to have Linux support on the store page at least so I can't be mad but it sure makes the dev seem incompetent AF, especially since it is an Unity game too). Runs perfectly with Proton.
Dead Bits
Playtime: 3.7 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: An incredibly crappy mix between a shooter and platformer with a whole lot of issues with Proton: It lags at some points (which it definitely shouldn't with my setup), some textures randomly don't load, going into the settings menu makes the game crash and tabbing out makes the game freak out sometimes. It is not even worth the 0,99€ the are asking for it.
Cube Destroyer
Playtime: 2.4 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: An extremely boring top down shooter. I am really not sure why there needs to be 75 levels of this nonsense. Runs fine with Proton.
Corporate Lifestyle Simulator
Playtime: 1.6 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Surprisingly fun zombie murdering game with a bunch of different weapons. My only real complaint about the game would be that it is sometimes a bit hard to tell where some of the zombies are. As for how the game runs with Proton? After level 15 or so it keep constantly crying that something was corrupted (I think something simply went wrong with my install) but you could dismiss the popup and the game would still work fine.
Felix Jumpman
Playtime: 2.2 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: The idea behind the game is kinda interesting (you jump around comets in space collecting parts of your space shuttle) but the execution is absolutely horrible. My biggest gripe with it is that the camera movement is not 360° with the mouse, making it extremely hard to orient yourself sometimes. Works fine with Proton.
Approaching Blocks
Playtime: 4.4 hours
Achievements: 16 of 16 (100%)
Review: I got mixed feeling about this reflex game. The game itself is OK for a while even tho you can exploit it quite a bit. The stupid translation gimmick on the other side is ... stupid. Mostly because you end up having to google translate Russian unless you speak it for a bunch of achievements. Runs fine on Linux except one achievement being broken (it used to be broken on Windows too, but it got fixed there).
Final Slam 2
Playtime: 2.3 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Awful fighting game with awful animations, graphic and broken UI/HUD. My overlay FPS counter didn0t work with it but it feels like the game was running at 5FPS and therefore incredibly unresponsive. I can't comment about how well it runs on Proton because I can't tell if the awful performance is because of it or the shitty game. My money is one the game.

Spakoyno: Back To USSR 2.0
Playtime: 2.4 hours
Achievements: 11 of 11 (100%)
Review: Is there any good Russian made VN?! (actually I can think of 2 OK ones right now out of god knows how many I played) This one sure isn't. They even managed to misspell "beach" as "bitch".... Runs fine with Proton.
The Walking Dead
Playtime: 15.8 hours
Achievements: 48 of 48 (100%)
Review: I never watched/read The Walking Dead before but I did enjoy my time with this Telltale game. My main gripes with it is that you can't skip things (even if you have seen them before), that it doesn't autosave often enough and that there are some minor inconsistencies with the story. As for Proton: It ran perfectly fine but would crash or break the mouse movement sometimes when tabbing out.

May overview

May was a busy, stressful month but at least I got some decent amount of games completed :) Actually, I think that in the first time at least since I am on BLAEO I have completed more games that I got in a month :D

Completed since last post

Western Press
Playtime: 6.6 hours
Achievements: 25 of 25 (100%)
Review: A typing and memory game set in the wild west. It is definitively a lot more fun playing against real people and not bots, but sadly there is no one playing it online. But even against bots it is ok for a while. However they should really tone it down with the animations and dialog, there is way too much of that between gameplay. Runs perfectly with Proton.
Mini Attack Submarine
Playtime: 1.3 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review:It is a Digital Homicide game, it is absolute garbage and you shouldn't even consider playing it. Works fine with Proton.
Ampersand
Playtime: 1.6 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0 (NAN%)
Review: When someone has to make a Steam guide explaining what the controls are for a racing game, you know the devs fucked up. If that is not enough, the controls don't feel very responsive either :D and the game is shit. As a cherry on top the game doesn't have any kinds of settings whatsoever. With Proton it has some weird alt tabbing issues.

Forth week of May

Lots of progress has been made this week and even if most of the games were really short I am still supper happy with it. I have also hit 25% completed games :D which might not sound a lot to some people but when you got over 2k games it takes some effort to achieve ;)

VITATIO 2
Playtime: 1.7 hours
Achievements: 68 of 68 (100%)
Review: A move your mouse very precisely through a path game. I didn't have the patience for it (plus the hitboxes seemed off to me) so I explointed the shit out of this game. Not my fault they made it so easy to do so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Runs 100% fine with Proton.

Review: Yet another shitty Russian horror game with shitty English pukes a little. Oh and it is not even scary. Runs fine with Proton.
Mahjong Solitaire
Playtime: 1.3 hours
Achievements: 10 of 10 (100%)
Review: It is a Mahjong game, it is OK. It could use more than 10 different pattern placements and that it wouldn't re-enable the music every time you start the game or switch to the level/main menu. But other than that is your good old mahjong game that runs without issues with proton. If you bothered to read this review, like mahjong games and would like a key for it let me know and I will see what I can do.
Galactic Hitman
Playtime: 1.6 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: This won't come as a surprise to anyone that knows anything about Digital Homicide but this is probably the single worst shooter game I have ever played and I have played some absolute garbage. Works fine with Proton.
Lup
Playtime: 2.3 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Speaking about worst things: this platformer. The movement left and right of the screen (background and platforms) almost gives me motion sickness and the controls, which are basically the most important thing with platformers, are awful so it gets a bit fat no from me. Works fine with Proton.
Over The Void
Playtime: 1.7 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: When the game start with a fucking AZERTY keyboard layout you are at a good start (has rebindable keys but it sure doesn't help against the french arrogance stereotype*), when you manage to get stuck between objects twice in less than 5 minutes you know how to say screw this game. The dev also promised a Linux port in 2015 and that never happened. Works fine with Proton at least.
Zombie Solitaire 2 Chapter 1
Playtime: 18 hours
Achievements: 15 of 15 (100%)
Review: It is an OK solitaire game with a total of 100 levels although some of those are hidden object and match 3 ones. The hidden object ones are easy and some of the match 3 ones are infuriating to get 3 stars on. Thankfully that is only a few levels. Works perfectly with Proton.
Winged Knights: Penetration
Playtime: 18 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Another Digital Homicide game and unsurprisingly this one is absolute garbage as well. I wont waste any more words on it other to say that it runs fine with Proton, but you shouldn't play it anyways.
Wild Island Quest
Playtime: 2 hours
Achievements: 10 of 10 (100%)
Review: A weird mix of VN and choose your own adventure game with shitty graphics. Works fine on Linux.
Laraan
Playtime: 2.5 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: NOPE just for the fact that the cursor doesn't get locked to the game window making almost impossible to play on a multiple monitor setup (do people actually do development on one screen? I have 3 at home and work and I constantly bitch about not having enough space to work with). The camera movement is all over the place which gave me motion sickness so screw this game in particular. Runs fine on Linux at least.
Upside Down
Playtime: 4.5 hours
Achievements: 78 of 78 (100%)
Review: This game surprised me. I thought it was going to be bad but it is actually a pretty fun platformer. There were a few frustrating levels here and there but the majority of the 40 levels were just fine. Works fine with Linux.
Rituals
Playtime: 51 minutes
Achievements: 7 of 7 (100%)
Review:A short and kinda weird not really walking simulator but also not really puzzle game. It is not too bad but the problem with it is that the movement system is really weird (you move around and look around with the mouse). It is really shot and I beat it twice to get all the achievements. Except for 2 random crashes when starting it up it worked fine on Linux.

* Please don’t lynch me, I got nothing against French people. I am just putting out an observation because WASD is the standard for controls and bringing in a layout that the minority of people use as default is a fucking stupid decision and it just makes me think you are arrogant and the dev is indeed French. I would give them props for making it rebindable at least, but it is an Unity game so they don’t even get that + they are being all smug about it in the tutorial so they can go extra fuck themselves…

Third week of May

Not much to be seen here, just a couple of “do more work after you come home from work” games :) I played some PC building simulator too because working all day in IT is not enough for me apparently.

Playtime: 23 minutes

Review:A lesser/easier version of Papers, please. It is entertaining enough for 15 minutes or so because I am missing it having any kind of progression. It runs very well on Linux but it doesn't seem to remember your progress as it tried to have me do the tutorial again the 2nd time I started it.

Other completed game

House Flipper
Playtime: 18.2 hours
Achievements: 38 of 38 (100%)
Review: It is a great game if you like Viscera Cleanup Detail and The Sims as it incomporates the cleaning up and house design from those games. It is limited in the design aspect as there is less furniture/options than in The Sims but I still enjoyed it game a whole lot anyways. Runs 100% fine with the newer versions of Proton.

Second week of May

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I am late, I was too busy re-100%ing ETS2 yesterday to make a post. And today I am busy with trying to choose with GPU to buy :/ (first world problems I know) Anyone got a 1080ti or 2080 they can recommend? There is too many too pick from D:

Rescue Love Revenge
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Achievements: 2 of 2 (100%)
Review: A meh runner game that feels like a mobile port with button prompts for a controller even if you don't have one plugged in?! Even if my laptop easily passed the minimum required specs fir Linux, I couldn't get past level 13 because it kept freezing for 5 seconds at a time and ran at like 15fps. Worked fine on my desktop at least.

Other completed games

Super Jigsaw Puzzle: Monuments
Playtime: 29.8 hours
Achievements: 131 of 131 (100%)
Review: One of the only 3 games I remember buying because of the Steam discovery queue (the other 2 being games from the same series as this one) and I don't regret it one bit as it is a really nice puzzle game where you can solve 30 different puzzles on either of the 4 sizes - 40, 80, 200 or 400 pieces. Runs 100% fine with Proton.
Cosmic Dust & Rust
Playtime: 2.9 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: I have a meh-hate relationship with this tower diffenseish kinda game. At first I hated it, then I got the hang of thing and I thought it was kind of ok, but then I realised just how unbalanced it is. As a cherry on top the game also crashed once. Other than the crash it ran fine with Proton.
Despair
Playtime: 2.2 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Despair (noun)- utter loss of hope. Yes, utter loss of hope that the devs who made this game are half competent. It is a shit horror game where your mouse randomly disappears in the audio menu and once you actually start the game it just crashes (at least with Proton). I watched someone play it on Youtube and I am more than happy to call this shit done just with that.

Faerie Solitaire Harvest
Playtime: 40.5 hours
Achievements: 44 of 44 (100%)
Review: Really nice solitaire game just like the previous one they made. It just gets a bit tedious to beat it 3 times to get all the achievements if you are dumb like me and do it over the span of 2 weeks. If you do it over a longer period of time you should probably be fine. The store doesn't say it but there is a Linux version of the game and it work flawlessly.

Fourth week of April

I am abroad again and therefore stuck with a shitty laptop again … and man this thing is showing that it is 7 years old more and more and doesn’t even run some of the stuff that should… I guess it will make coming back to my sweet sweet setup at home even nicer :)

Northern Tale
Playtime: 7.8 hours

Review: A nice clean the road type of management game. It just gets a bit boring if you play it all in one session since it doesn't really introduce any new elements across the game and it is the same thing over and over, but I didn't mind too much. It runs perfectly fine with Proton.
Space mining clicker
Playtime: 4.8 hours
Achievements: 12 of 12 (100%)
Review: I go this one for free from the dev to test the Linux version and I can say it runs perfectly fine. It is an OK clicker game where differently from basically every other clicker I ever played you have to manage/click 2 different resources. It is however pretty short to finish (~4 hours).

Third week of April

CS:GO is still cockblocking me from progressing through my backlog as much as I would like. I need help. The wrist pain is pretty much gone but it was replaced by a constant numbishm tingly feeling on my left half of my left hand which makes using WASD hard sometimes :( My body sucks.

Also it has been about a month since I have last touched a Windows PC and I have to say I am not missing it one little bit (except fucking Paint out of all things, I want that back :( ). I can’t see myself switching back anymore, tho I am half considering switching the distro just to try something new… ah the problem of having too much choice.

Review: There is exactly 0 reason to ever pick this up and play it unless you really wanna drive through Portugal and Spain as ETS2 exist and it is so so much better in every other aspect expect for not having Portugal and Spain but it has many other new places to drive through. And if you wanna have a great time while trucking across Europe you should definitely pick it up (ETS2 I mean). Works completely fine with Proton.

Review: A pretty easy, simplistic and I guess ok gravity game that insist that it must be played on my portrait monitor (I did manage to move it to my main screen after a bit of fighting with it). Runs 100% fine with Proton. The only problem? I fucking hate gravity games.

Review: Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope... its a horror game. Playing it with no sound makes it a 100x better experience. It is not all that good anyways. Crashed the first time I clicked play but on the 2nd try it worked fine (Proton).

Second week of April

This week was really not a good week for playing games thanks to my own stupid body. I have been suffering from some annoying pain/numbness/tingling in both of my wrists (the right one being way worse off) which basically cockblocked me from playing what I wanted a lot and Sparkle 2 Evo gave me one of the worst motion sickness I have ever gotten (screw that game for many different reasons). Yes, I know I should probably give my body, especially my wrists a break because otherwise I will probably pay hard for it, but ain’t nobody have time for that.

Review: A shitty "move this box in a certain location" game with shitty laggy controls, obnoxious animations and no setting. It also insisted on starting on my portrait monitor with a resolution that made the game unplayable. I actually had to switch my monitor locations around (so that the leftmost one was a normal landscape one) so that I could even play it and it was not worth it.
