It's Psychonauts!
After a long time a sequel.
I really enjoyed the Story and the gameplay.
short review 10/10

I didn't expect much from this game, but I really had my share of fun.
The only ting that fell short for me, was the character selection.
Since you basically only play one character actively, I always used the Main Character.
But the gameplay was fun and quirky, the story was nice.

Love this game! Awesome atmosphere.
And I am really into cardgames like this.
This was a first for me to have a cardgame with a open map in which you can walk around.
I personally still fought every enemy on the map for the rewards.
The only thing I could complain about, is that a lot of story related stuff is tied to chance encounters.
For example I finished the game and still have not encountered the seamstress.

I have a really hard time judging here.
since the game get's removed, I really rushed it.
Knowing that there is a lot of optional stuff and NG+ it feels a bit like I am missing a bit
But my goal was to finish the main story and I finished that.
The story was really good and became more epic with each part.
Aside from that it felt like a typical Tales of(JRPG). I also tuned down the difficulty to easy to save time on grinding and fight times.

A really charming story wrapped in a walking simulator.
The contrast between the dark and light visuals were really nice.
But it was good the game wasn't too long.
The lack of gameplay started to get boring

Well, well.
This was my first "Torchlight", so I can't say it's not "Torchlight"
But the game still feels not that great. A lot of stuff feels like it was supossed to be a MMO but got scraped midway
I would say it's okay, at best.

This game was really a bag of mixed feelings for me.
I do not like first-person games at all, but Supraland pushed all the right buttons beside of that.
I really enjoyed it, the collecting, the exploring, the puzzles.
it's really a fun game

A really fun twist for the Darksiders games!
I played the game alone (Want to buy friends)
But it was still very enjoyable.
the "Metroidvenia" part with a chapter select was a bit awkward and seemed forced
but otherwise from that the prequel story was also very interesting
Darksiders 4 when?

This was my first Shantae game.
and the first thought that came to me: They are damn good at making you visit the same level 100 times.
Also it felt a bit like Monster Boy to me with the dances.

It was a really fun game, but a few more levels would not have hurt.
I did not play the DLCs cause I did not feel like paying for them on EA Desktop.

Furi was at times really frustrating.
The enemies signal an attack but attack a bit later, so you are too early with the block
it's all just learning when every enemy actually attacks.
Besides of that it had some really nice Boss Fights and interesting Story.

It was kinda nice to get back into a racing game after years.
It did not have too much beside racing to get me confused.
But the optional Microtransactions were a bit bothersome.
"Yay I found a nice car!"….go to the store to purchase it…..
Besides of that when I reached the top3 it was a bit of a grind for the last ones.
But I really licked to explore the map to find cars


More Gamepass played!

It was a really fun game.
But I actually made only one playthrough and did not bother wih Boss Cells.
Maybe I will go back to the game in the future, but for now I will priorize backlog instead.

it's kinda sad that they still have no online coop after all this time.
Even though they promised it "shortly after release"
Non the less I had my share of fun, but I would recommend a controler over Mouse/Keyboard

Indie Pikmin!
That was the whole thing I fealt about it.
There were/are quite some serious bugs at release, which will hopefully be fixed over time.
Aside from that I had my share of fun with it, but it probably helped that I like pikmin


★★★★★

Honestly, don't know what to say about control.
The story was kinda interesting, but also super weird, the ending felt unsatisfying to me.
I had some quite serious bugs, whose are known for a long time, and even crashes.
I am personally not a fan shooters, but the throwing around of stuff was fun, the energy system was with that a bit limiting though.


Not much this time, but still happy Easter TIme BLEAO :D

In general I would say Monster Sanctuary is a very good and fun game.
The only thing I really didn't like about it, is that the last dungeon is way too hard.
I tried several times and burned through all my resources to beat it, but always failed.
But the way there was really fun.
Also they announced an easy mode.


★★★★★

This is a tough cookie.
The game has a lot of potential, but it seems like it failed in most of it.
The combat is mostly boring, the exploring too empty.
The Story is kinda interesting, but get's lost in the world.


★★★★★

It was a very fun game.
But I didn't like it enough to play it past the story.
Also I am not good enough at this.
But the story was a nice ride


Damn, I forgot the post last month
Guess this month will be twice as long then!

Sadly the game has a very slow start, for me at least.
I had to endure, but later the game really got interesting after the Story really began to unfold.

I actually didn't expect much when I started this game.
It only seemed semi-interesting to me when I saw it on steam, but when it arrived on Game Pass I decided to give it a try.

The whole game is very well made, how they tell the story is just awesome!
It's basically a interactive story book, you never do really much, but the story is interesting and again, very well made!

This game was really fun!
it's fast paced, you can slow time, it has a bit of difficulty, but not too much.
The whole story is kinda weird, at times it's even hard to say what happened.
But it is for sure interesting!

The only thing I want to complain is the "To be continued"


★★★★

Tough call for me.
I love Slay the Spire and I just have to compare them.
Monster train is a good game to me, but since it also focuses on ascensions, deck building, classes and such it falls a bit short to me

The first 5 or so sucessful runs and the fails inbetween were really fun, but to me the game brings not enough to the table to play it until ascension 25.
The Monster placing mechanic is for sure interesting, but mayb be a bad match for me.

This game would be good…… if they would not want from you the repeat the exact same game several times.
I played one game through, the game was like "nah do it again fo progress"
You basically just get reborn, to the same dungeons and all every time, till you get an actual ending on the 5th? playthrough

The first playthrough was good and fun, but I would not want to repeat it that many times


New month new post.
Was pretty lazy this month with mostly watching movies from Disney+, but well here we go.

What to say about Genshin, the game plays really nice, and so far the pulling for weapons and characters seem optional. Resin is a bit short if you really want to grind, but the content it has is really nice.
I guess I will continue to play it as long as they continue releasing content.

It's a nice link in with the two previous games to see what happened and how it will continue

It certainly feels like a good game, but halfway through it I started to get headaches.
The puzzles got quite complicated and I had break down to short sessions.
Sadly the game got removed from game pass shortly after, I watched the ending on youtube them.


★★★★★

A really good game, challenging and enjoyable platformer.
Only did the base story though, due to a lack of time and too many games.
Maybe I will come back to it some other time to do all the other content.
The only thing I didn'T like were the levels with wind.


★★★★★

So hard to judge.
I really enjoy platformers, this one is not a bad one, but it just didn't sit well with me.
It has some base levels, and has a level builder with community features.
like Mario Maker


Another Month another Game Pass post…..
…but I did not really play that much cause I started Genshin Impact

The game itself seems nice and all, but after finishing chapter 1 I was simply bored to death and chose to drop it.
Basically all you do is rotating map pieces cause a villager says "The thing you seek is at the north forest of the village", so you have to place the forest north of the village and then go there.

I really had fun with Lucky, but it's heavily children oriented.
Noticable at the difficulty, there is hardly any difficulty to begin with and at the loading screens and story.
But I still had my fun with it, it's a very well made little jump 'n run.
Sometimes I even was surprised by their idea and creativity


★★★★★

The game looks stunning, the story could be interesting.
But the gameplay is just not my thing, I tried to endure it, but I couldn't.
Maybe I will watch the remaining game on youtube, not sure yet.
Sadly all this stealth and running is not my thing, from the trailer I expected more action.


★★★★★

Ugh this game.
In general it's fun and all, I finished it 4 times? I think.
But with every boss the game get's longer, the bosses get more and more bullets, you get also more and more bullets.
For me it was almost impossible to evade bullets cause I simply didn't see them.
After I died several times to the same boss cause I just couldn't see a thing I dropped it.
At that point it become more frustrating than it was fun.


I feel the need to post here again in a long time.

I got myself the Xbox Gamepass recently, and since those are not synced with Steam/BLEAO(obviously), I want to keep track of them like this.

Also I told myself I won’t obsess as much over those games like I do on Steam, so for once they won’t be 100%ed even though they might be awesome games

★★★★★

Actually I would say this is a hard to gauge game.
It is certainly not a long game, but probably it's better that way.
Controlling the Monster is king of fun but get's stale pretty fastm the enemies are mostly trivial too.
Most of the time the most puzzling is to reach certain areas.
They could have made more out of this idea, but it is certainly not a bad game


★★★★

Enter the Gungeon is a well made and good game.
But all this Bullethell run and gun action is just not my favorite.
Still I tried my best and managed in a good run to go to the last floor, and beat it.
After repeating this once more and finishing one character with that, I felt the game was complete for me.


★★★★

Nier, what to say about Nier.
The first few hours were a drag and I considered dropping it a few times.
The game feels overhyped without end, but after enduring long it enough it became fun.
I skipped a lot of quests, I finished the main story and then went to the optional boss and DLC content.
It's a good game, but by far not one of the best.
The world felt too empty, the fetch quests were dragging on too long ans the story also took too long to take off.
But overall the Story was quite interesting.

Can't reccomend it enough!
The only bothersome thing of this games are the several things that oneshot you.
It was a wild ride and I had a lot of fun

Take Ori and the Blind Forest and Hollow Knight and throw it in a blender.
The result will be this: Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
Will of the Wisps felt heavily influenced by Hollow Knight, but if you combine two awesome games, what will be the result?
In this case it was also an awesome game!
I was kind of sad that they left the ability tree behind and went with "ability shards" instead, but that little bit was blown away very fast.
This game is by no means worse than Ori and the Blind Forest, just a bit different.


★★★★★

A Rogelite how I love it.
A lot of stuff to unlock to improve your future runs.
You are a little peasant diving down the mine and collecting gold for your future runs.
The rooms themselves made me think of Binding of Issac, but I would heavily prefer the Undermine gameplay over the Isaac one.
Who does not like to whack enemies with a pickaxe?
I personally favor melee combat over ranged.


Overall I am kind of glad I decided to mostly ignore achievements, Ori 1+2 but also Undermine have some kinda annoying ones.
And in the case of Undermine it would take hundreds of hours, and I think past 20 hours it would get stale for me.
