Heya! Welcome to my profile.
I mainly play games until I beat them and I rarely go for 100% completion unless it’s very doable (like in most HOGs case), also I try to put some
bad play on words in the titles of my updates based on the games I played.
I also watch anime “from time to time” so feel free to check my list if you want
I’ll post my updates here from time to time (probably weekly, but I’m not sure if I’ll manage to stick to it). Also you can check my yearly progress here if you fell like it.
I originally planned to post something 15 days ago, but uhm… let’s just say I neglected the backlog quite a bit ^^;
Stop the Presses! I got a request in my curator group
Well, this was seriously unexpected since my group is super small and I barely started. Actually I got the request a few weeks ago but the dev asked me to not make any reviews until the game was released. The game in question was Deeproot Manor.
At first I was a bit hesitant to accept the request since I’m bad with horror games, but I though the simple graphics would make it easier to deal with to me, after all I managed ot beat Ino without issues. 5 minutes was all it took to realize how wrong I was.
The game’s atmosphere is really well done and you can feel the tension as soon as you get in the manor. It doesn’t help one bit that it plays with your expectations, there are times when everything is building up to a jumpscare, and you brace for it… but in the end there’s no jumpscare. The puzzles are also well-thought and you can tell they put effort on them.
In the end I was too much of a wuss to finish it but I liked what I played. Horror fans will definitely enjoy this one
I’m having a lot of free time lately due to the pandemic, which of course means it’s time to do some backlog cleaning
I’m also playing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, though I can’t play it for more than an hour a day because I end up with some mild headaches (Valravn’s realm didn’t help at all). I’ll finish it sometime though because I like the game quite a bit and I find the portrayal of psychosis in the game quite interesting.
What Do You Mean You Can’t Hit Your Opponents in Soccer?
The lack of sports due to the pandemic gave me an excuse to try this game (which a friend recommended to me 14 years ago)
Red Card is like your usual soccer game with the difference that rough play is allowed (I’d even say is a little bit encouraged). You can tackle, kick, punch, headbutt or even jump kick your opponents to the face (not even the referee is free from getting hit!). You also can do special shots but more often than not the keeper will be able to stop it (ironically it’s way more likely to score a goal with a normal shot from outside the box). The commentators make it even better, as they are often dissing the referee for not seeing the blatant fouls or the players for diving despite of how hard they got hit by their opponents.
That aside (and the fact you can unlock some fantasy teams like a team of apes or samurais) the game felts a tad basic. There aren’t many modes and once you unlocked everything there’s barely anything else to do there (and to add insult to injury you can’t use the unlocked teams in friendly matches).
All in all it’s a decent yet flawed game that’s good to play for shits and giggles with some friends for an hour or so.
I haven’t had much time to play games lately but at least I somewhat managed to clear out my SG backlog a bit.
I’m participating in Pay or Play for the first time and so far I managed to beat one of the games (which doubles as a PAGWOSG entry).
Also I played some games for the BLAEO Monthly Theme because why not?
- Space Pilgrim Episode I: Alpha Centauri
- Space Pilgrim Episode II: Epsilon Indi
- Space Pilgrim Episode III: Delta Pavonis
- Space Pilgrim Episode IV: Sol
I liked these games quite a bit, even if the face art screams “modified default art” and some faces look too similar to each other (Sabina and Tarjae’s faces for example). Rather than a proper RPG this was an adventure game where you have to pick up items and combine them if required to progress into the story. Story-wise it was fine but the characters have enough charisma to keep you interested on the game (Sabina is my favourite by far). My only gripe with the games was the low resolution. I wouldn’t mind it in your typical RPG but it makes it unnecessarily hard to find some key items here.
Until the next update!
End of January Rush!
Sorting out my games by duration made me realize I have a lot of super short ones so what a better way to clear out the backlog than tackling those short games? (I wish it didn’t take me too long to write this post, but apparently RL is way too fond of getting in my way)
It could have been just a backlog-clearing week but I caved and bought Mirror. I can only blame HuniePop 2 not being out yet for it =P
ABC Challenge: Palate Cleanser Edition
Man, it feels great to play not one but two good RPG Maker games after the absolute disaster that was 3 Stars of Destiny.
Until next time!
First update of 2020
There’s no better way for a gamer to start the new year than playing some games! This time I played 2 games (which only one was finished, the other one was dropped harder than the beat in this track). Let’s start with the former
As for the latter, I have a lot of things to say about it, and most of them aren’t nice
Until the next update!
This year of ferocious fight against the backlog is over and it’s time to see how much I progressed over the year.
It looks like I failed spectacularly this year, though it could have been worse ¯\(ツ)/¯. At least there was some progress percentage-wise compared to when I joined BLAEO last year.
As for what are my plans for 2020. First I’ll move the stuff there’s a 99.9% I won’t play right to Abandoned. Even if it doesn’t amount to much seeing the “never played” percentage lower than 90% motivates me to tackle my backlog even more. Also I’m I’m going to focus on shorter games witht he occasional long game here and there, and I made not one but two ABC Challenges (you can tell I really like this thing =P). One with mostly short games and another one with RPG Maker games (while I’m at it, I ended up making a curator group for curating RPG Maker games, feel free to follow both the group and the curator page =) )
