Playing in my free time with a borrowed PC (leeching it!).
Now it’s even worse, trying to play on an old laptop and trying to find games i can run ^^.
if there are games marked as beaten/completed with low play time it’s because:
- Darksiders: Warmastered and Deathinitive Editions.
- Skyrim: beaten Skyrim SE.
- Van Helsing 1-2-3: beaten the Director’s Cut.
- Wasteland 2: beaten Final Cut.
since i’m not here to show off to anyone, just to keep track of what i do and i’m tired of writing pointless reviews, i’m just going to list all the games i’ve finished.

omg what a mess they did with minecraft <_<
the story is completely unrelated to the game and it could fit in any other world and they picked the most obscure references and items they could find. they even used stuff that’s only available to certain versions (like the pocket edition) instead of mainstream and well known stuff.
at least the last chapter was fun with something else than button mashing and QTE every 10 seconds.

it’s been a while since i had to play a game with so many crashes. can’t minimize, can’t chat with overlay, and it randomly crashes when you check collectibles… <_<
despite the tech issues, the game is great. maybe a bit short if you aim to play the campaign and leav eit at that, but they added sidequests that make you replay each map so you can keep unlocking upgrades, “levelling up”, and picking up collectibles for a while.
this wolfenstein is way harder than the previous two titles, i had to set the difficulty to medium-low, and for the sidequest i ended up playing it on easy, because i got destroyed instantly. -.-
the game is filled with “sjw” content (you know, everything the alt-right hates xD) so it’s no wonder there’s a lot of controversy around it. nazi-hating, lots of women, black people, pregnant women covered in blood shooting enemies (i’m not kidding, the game makes no sense…). it’s interesting how the devs picked everything trending in the news and social sites and added them to their game. ^^

gonna pack both in the same review because they are feel exactly the same, which is pretty amazing since they kept the same artwork, music and narrative. ^^
i’m surprised how they managed to produce an original game with a basic concept. the game is just isometric turn-based strategy but the story is so well developed with lots of choices to make and options to build your party/caravan, it makes the game look alive, like it’s changing each time you pick a different dialogue.
hopefully they are still working on a 3rd and last part to finish the saga because it would be a waste to let it die here. <3

an improvement over shadow of mordor in every way. ^^
controls are way more responsive and since they added difficulty settings you don’t need to suffer so much dying in 3-4 hits xD
still, easy difficulty felt a bit tough vs in some fights, especially when there are several captains with skills that give them immunities.
the thing that bored me was how they forced the castle defense mechanic in chapter 4. you need to repel invaders at least 3 times per fortification (i think you have 5-6 regions) and each time the attacking party level increases. i didn’t have a lot of trouble doing this, but it’s boring to repeat the same thing over and over again without anything else to do between these “quests”. you just move to a new region, defend, succeed, move again, defend, etc.
and before someone can say “that’s why they added microtransactions, so you had to buy your army and speed up things”… no, you don’t speed up a damn thing, you only make sure your army is max level with legendary status. this only makes defenses easier, since your army will deal and resist more damage, but you still need to fight and waste time.
i finished the game with a LOT of ingame currency and 550 premium gold (free sample for doing quests xD) and i didn’t need to spend it on anything to make my army tougher.
the only thing that can help speed up the game is xp boosters, but even without them i reached lv60 in ~62 hours, around chapter 4 - stage 6.
well, thanks a lot dogma. game was fun!

super short game, very simple but also chaotic.
didn’t make me feel like its challenge mode was worth spending more time on it, it would be more of the same gameplay.
game tells you which cats are gonna attack you on each round, but there’s no way to know the order so you can’t really plan ahead how to stack defenses to properly stop them… unless you replay each round and remember what happened. -.-

dropped another 330 hours in this game since i finished it on release without the dlc.
i will never understand the hate it gets, not just for the creative club (which can be ignored like almost every single modder does by using nexus) but also for the usual complains that the game is shallow and lacks content. maybe people enjoy more endless dialogues rather than exploring, crafting and making significant choices that affect gameplay and the story, who knows. i know i’m in the minority here, but if i wanted to read, i would just pick a book (yes torment: tides of numenera, i’m looking at you).
the only thing i disliked from the season pass was nuka-world’s main quest. it’s aimed at playing a raider and somewhat being evil, which goes against everything i’ve done so far in the game, so it made no sense at all to have a change of heart just to “please” the dlc.
ended up killing everyone with a sidequest a slave gives you, which is ok since at least i had an option. the problem is… you end the main quest there without any other mission from the slaves.
it would have been extremely easy to “port” raider missions to the slaves, this looked extremely lazy and lame, probably cutting down gameplay by 10-20 hours.
not sure if i will play it again since i did everything i could in the base game for a second time, and almost everything in the season pass. it’s still the top fallout title for me, and unless fallout 5 is better, it won’t change. ^^

another amazing dishonored game <3
i really liked how similar it’s to d2 but they still managed to make powers and weapons unique. again i focused on stealth despite failing a few times (enemies spotted bodies and it seems they also saw me since i failed the ghost achivement) but i’m not obsessed enough to replay 5 times each map till it’s perfect xD
i enjoyed it for what it’s worth, lots of exploration, reading notes for lore, paying attention to small details, etc.
the last part of the game is pretty special, since they never focused so much on the void and the outsider.
thanks dogma for the great gift <3

way better than the first <3
it focus on combat instead of stealth and it keeps giving you enemies to shoot at. the perk system is the same but with new skills, they take much more time to complete but you can always play certain parts of the game and restart them to farm points, so it’s not so bad.
they included more nightmare levels, which was pretty annoying since those old maps are terrible but i still wanted to do them all, even if it took me several tries to 100%.
