Second week of August

Once again not much has been beaten this week and honestly I don’t think it will get any better for the rest of the month. sigh I miss having summer holidays :(

Northern Tale 2

Review: It is a pretty nice time/resource management/fix the road type of game. It does nothing innovative but it is still a decent way to pass the time. Runs fine with Proton.

Review: A really nice match 4 game with a bit different match mechanic than usual. It currently has 2 different game modes (survival and endless) but supposedly they are gonna add more from what someone told me. Runs fine with Proton as long as it is in windowed mode (fullscreen has issues with crashing on tab out).

First week of August

Oh boy, this month is not going well when it comes to completing video games. I got exactly one completed at even this one was completed today. Hopefully the rest of the month will be a bit better especially since I am only working 3 days next week. fingers crossed

Review:A nice match 3 game but I would not recommend playing it 6 hours in a row... might not be the best for your sanity. It works fine with Proton as long as you don't tab out while in fullscreen mode (windowed is most fine) as that has a really really high chance crashing the game.

July overview

It is late and I want to go to sleep soon, no gibberish nonsense talk here this time.

Forth week of July

It has been a pretty meh week where I didn’t feel like doing fuck all, but I still completed 3 games + I started working again on a puzzle IRL that has been sitting there and waiting for the past 6 months since I got a nice puzzle bowl to sort my pieces in made by Ninglor (thank you again, I love it <3).

Completed games

Cat President ~A More Purrfect Union~
Playtime: 3.3 hours
Achievements: 21 of 21 (100%)
Review: A really weird VN about trying to get a cat to win the presidential election and dating them. There is no lack of cat related puns in it, that is for sure. I quite enjoyed it and it runs fine on Linux.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Playtime: 5.7 hours
Achievements: 14 of 14 (100%)
Review: I started the game once before back in 2016 and I absolutely hated it because it gave both me and my boyfriend who was playing with me really bad motion sickness. I was challenged to play it by PoP and while I still got a bit of motion sickness, it was still OK and it is an OK walking sim. It has some issues with proton (crashes, graphical glitches, inconsistent framerate) but it was still completely playable).
Paperbark
Playtime: 2 hours
Achievements: 25 of 25 (100%)
Review: An adorable wombat walking sim. The only real issue I had with it is that the movement is a bit buggy and I wish you could control the wombat with WASD instead of the mouse. Runs perfectly with Proton.

Third week of July

I have been playing unhealthy amounts of CS:GO. Someone pls halp. Why can I not stop playing that game?! Well I know, its because it is a lot of fun with friends but halp…

In the last time I have been also rewatching a lot of old Co-Optional Podcast episodes. Can we have TB back please? :( It has been over a year and my brain still haven’t quite got the fact that there won’t be another WTF is… or that I will sooner or later run out of Co-optional episodes with him in it. Anyways to mostly (there is some shit here again) happier topics:

Completed SG win

Volstead
Playtime: 1.8 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: A confusing and boring board game I didn't really get. Works fine with Proton.

Other completed games

$1 Ride
Playtime: 1.4 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: The idea behind it is not awful - basically manage your resources/choices and pilot your ship as long as possible, but the execution is awful. More time than not if you make one wrong choice it will be game over and it is very easy to make the wrong choice. Works fine with Proton.
Zombie Solitaire
Playtime: 3.5 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: It is an OK solitaire game but you can find much better ones out there (like the sequels to this one - yes, I played those first, blame the weird sales). Works perfectly with Proton but apparently some people have issues on Windows which amuses me greatly :)
Weapons Genius
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Achievements: 9 of 9 (100%)
Review: An incredibly broken and shitty wanna be weapon building simulator. I am impressed at myself that I actually managed to 100% it with all the issues it has. Works mostly fine with Proton except an incredibly annoying mouse issue that can be fixed.
Animated Puzzles
Playtime: 11.1 hours
Achievements: 14 of 14 (100%)
Review: A nice jigsaw puzzle game that as the name implies has animated puzzles. The puzzle pieces and rules are customisable and also gas workshop support which is always great when there aren't that many puzzles to do by default. Works fine on Linux.

Second week of July

I had one of those trash weeks where I just went through a lot of shitty games very quickly. Nothing in this post except Avalon Legends Solitaire 2 is worth anything.

Fun times, my right elbow and wrist are hurting again preventing me from doing what I want to do the most: playing puzzle and solitaire games :c I powered through Avalon Legends since I was almost done and I can still play things that don’t require me to move my mouse too much but ugh :(

Mover
Playtime: 29 minutes
Achievements: 5 of 5 (100%)
Review: Not only is the game itself not very good, the Linux version is not very good either: it keeps freezing and crashing on level end.
Rise of the Ancients
Playtime: 1.7 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Wow, well this is probably the worst tower defence game I ever played. It is even worse than the singing of my neighbour. Please someone make him shut up. Works fine with Proton.
Apez
Playtime: 32 minutes
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: I played it for 5 minutes and I had quite enough. I really hope this was made by a 10 year old because if not... The multiplayer is unsurprisingly dead and when I played singleplayer against the bots it disconnected me out of my own game? Works fine with Proton.
Hardcore ZBoy
Playtime: 13 minutes
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: A bad runner game with a multiplayer promised that *mild shock* never happened. Except for refusing to minimize itself when trying to tab out in fullscreen mode it seems to work fine with Proton.
Rise of One
Playtime: 6 minutes
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: It just loads, loads and never actually loads. Why is this still on the store even if as free to play is beyond me. I can't say anything more about it since it is not actually playable and since I have seen everything I can possible see -> completed.

Forbidden Planet
Playtime: 2.2 hours

Review: This game makes fuck all sense to me. Get out of my list of games to play.... Seems to run fine with Proton at least?

Review: Absolute and pure trash which seems to sadly work just fine with Proton.
Fiends of Imprisonment
Playtime: 1.7 hours

Review: More trash with broken achievements this time. Works fine on Proton.
Avalon Legends Solitaire 2
Playtime: 16.3 hours
Achievements: 22 of 22 (100%)
Review: Just a really really nice solitaire game with 300 levels. Works without issues with Proton.

First week of July

Not too much going on this week since I did spend most of the week playing Pixel Puzzles Ultimate since there is a triple gold event going on right now. I thought I would mention I also played the first 3 chapters of The Room with my boyfriend (via him streaming it to me) since I will never write an actually post about it as I am not the one who owns the game. We enjoyed it so far :)

Review: It is a really cool concept for a game where you guess the name of a city from the pictures shown to you, but it has some flaws. I had to rename the executable file on Linux because it tries to run a file that doesn't exist otherwise, the UI is awful and while the pictures are not the usual ones you see (which is fine), they are not all the best quality.

Other completed games

ISLANDERS
Playtime: 4 hours
Achievements: 26 of 26 (100%)
Review: A fun puzzle city builder where you try to get the best score you can whit the buildings you are given across procedural generated islands. Only problem is that it gets a bit repetitive after a while but I enjoyed my time with it. Runs without issues on Linux.
Death Ray Manta
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Way too colourful shot'em up game to the point I had no idea WTF was going on at any time. Has no setting of any kind. Works fine with Proton at least.

June overview

I currently don’t even know where my head is so I can’t even write a proper statement to round up June. I need a proper actual vacation where I can just turn off my head and forget that literally everything exists.

Fourth week of June

I said last week that I would probably not complete anything due to spending time with my boyfriend but when there is 34°C at 9 in the morning already you can’t really go places without dying (we still went out a few times and ugh it was warm) and we played Firewatch together anyways :)

Completed games

Avalon Legends Solitaire
Playtime: 9 hours
Achievements: 13 of 13 (100%)
Review: A decent solitaire game with 200 levels and with no unnecessary nonsense features added to it. Works fine with Proton.
Firewatch
Playtime: 3.6 hours
Achievements: 10 of 10 (100%)
Review: I watched someone play this walking sim back when it came out in 2016 but I wanted to experience it myself once I forgot most things about it. I played it together with my boyfriend and we both enjoyed out time with it :) Runs on Linux without any issues at all.

Third week of June

Not many games this week and there probably wont be any next week due to my boyfriend coming to visit from Germany and I would rather spend time with him than playing video games :)) We are however setting up (for the 2nd day already due to all kinds of random issues because he wants Windows 10 installed >.>) a second battle station so I will probably still get some KF2/CS:GO gaming done together anyways :)

Review: I am pretty sure I called it cringy when I originally played the game ~2 years ago. I have now also played the DLC and it did not change my mind. But I am also still not the target audience for it so what do I know. Runs completely fine with Proton.
The Lady
Playtime: 2.3 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: There is a reason why this game was left in the unfinished pile of doom for years. That game is, just like The Grandfather from the same dev, shit. I don't even know how to describe it other than it being some weird nonsense. Runs fine with Proton, it just wont let you alt tab in fullscreen for some reason.
