Our Love Will Grow

28 hours, no achievements, ★★☆☆☆

More

Since it's late I'll just write a real quick one.
Our Love Will Grow is a super simple farming game. Compared to others, where you have to swap tools, dig up plots, clear your farming land, move the kettle onto the field in the morning and back to the shed in the evening, this one is way less complex. Firstly you do basically EVERYTHING with enter. Farming, looting, fishing, talking to ppl, selling, shopping, harvest, just everything. You don't switch tools. Right, said that before. Secondly you can only move with the arrows (or me just being stupid in working out how to change the keyboard. Like, honestly, I DIDN'T FIGURE IT OUT!?!). And last you have a very simple… err… menu (?) to work with by pressing either esc or zero on the num pad (which worked nicely with "enter" and arrows btw).
The most complicated thing was finding my way around the map. But once you know where everything is, that's also no big problem any longer. Second biggest problem was getting a girl to like the farmer. By the time I worked out I should hand out gifts to raise the heart lvl… I was almost done with everything else, so in the end I only kept going to get to marry. Once that was done, I decided it was enough.
Oh right, there is no real weather to talk about - only ever encountered rain in cut scenes - and most certainly no seasons. So we can grow strawberries at the same time as pumpkins - as long as we get the seeds for them. There are events but after the last one, it just ends and we just life on and on and on. So after the last event it became a bit dull to play. And yes, it's not the most exciting farming game to start with. But having events to look forward too and some requests from the so called "Consortium", make it not plain boring. Only raising the heart lvl sure does.
Still I enjoyed it. Probably bc I'm always bored at some point by farming games. I LOVE them, but I'm always bored after a certain amount of time. (HM sure take way longer to reach, but then I never play it as much at a time as I do with PC games :D)
Recommendation? For relaxing in between gaming: Yes :)


Cat Story ahead!
Sadly nothing here this week, bc soooo busy on my part o.o
But I brought you this:

I’ve been visiting a friend and we went to a concert – I reckon it might just be the best I’ve ever been at. Not just bc of the music, but also bc of the audience. I never felt less estranged, which was a totally new and exciting and beautiful experience. So yes, best ever. Also meeting the friend for the first time was so super awesome. All in all, I had two awesome days. Wish it would have lasted a bit longer, but since it was in the middle of the week – and right before she had to write exams – there was no other way. Sadly. Next time definitely more :]
Also I’ve been for the longest time ever out painting. I left about half past ten and the town was super deserted, considering it was a Sunday night. But it was just great getting back to it and totally into it. I hate my lack of motivation to go out and just do it – and love my ability to just get so lost in the whole painting process. In the end I decided to just reserve a table for each Sunday, that way it’ll find its way into my calendar and it’ll feel more like an appointment and appointments I normally don’t just ignore.
Sry for funny phrasings or such. Head is in chilling mode ;)

As stated before:
I’m happy to paint for each and everyone of you. Only fee are the material and shipping costs \o/
If you wanna give me something for the “work”, that’s totally up to you and not expected ;)

I honestly didn't expect to play the second almost right after the first one. But here we are. I got challenged to play it, so I did. I liked it. But let's just face it: The first game was better. Although I really liked the focus on the daddy/daughter thing in this one. Still it lacked the drive from the first one. And even more the surprise in the story. Somehow that didn't happen again.
In the end I'm pretty sure I destroyed the place this time more then last time. Maybe that's a good thing though.
After having beaten the whole thing, I tried the DLC, but was totally not motivated to do that. So I am abandoning this at right this point! (Also I already know I won't bother about the hardmode cheevos I can't 100% it anyway, so no biggy, right?)
Yeah, I'm totally bad today with this review thing :D
Recommendation? Yeah

Well this certainly was different. I get why ppl hand out games they liked an hope others will play and like it. I can't really say it was bad either. I'm just still not convinced I like games like that. And although I'm giving this one a pretty low rating, the story wasn't like bad or anything. The rest was more of a problem.
So yeah, we switch playing as a dragon girl and her "papa" or both together - and at some point other combos as well. In this world dragons are the only creature who can wield magic. They have unique abilities. Like the girl dragon can sniff out lies and eat them. She travels around with her "papa" and they get mixed up in situations that needs to be solved - aka eat lies a lot! In the end we get to learn the background story of "papa" and maybe have a happy end! \o/
It's a pretty short game, all in all. Also mostly pretty straight forward. "Papa" mostly points out what to do next. Very useful. Took me a while though to figure out we have an inventory. (AND! the games can save! \o/)
Recommendation? Uh, yeah. If you like pixely games and all that ;)


Cat Story ahead!
So the cat story happened pretty soon after posting my last update. It was a super cute cat story. I just came out of the shower and Tizio was sitting on the sink counter – can you say that? Well obv I can! He was looking into the mirror and that way looking at me. And our eyes met and I was like: “Hello my Baby!” And you could really see the recognition light up in his eyes, he turned around, looked at me and made this lovely, cute mieow! It almost sounded like he said: “My human! So happy to have you!” Did I ever mention how in love I am with him? Well I am! <3

I’ve been listening a lot to The Witcher audiobooks, bc I don’t wanna start the third game, before I’m done with them. So yeah. Resumed some painting at home I had going on for… years. And Our Love will Grow works pretty well with it too – and the PPU Challenge of the month I guess.
I had doggo duties in the week, bc my parents were out to a concert and treated themselves with a night in a hotel. That was pretty okay-ish. Only trouble: Doggo is pretty much deaf. The times he can actually hear, he refuses to follow instructions. Mostly. Or at least while we’ve been out on our nightly stroll right before doggo bedtime. We came back our dark driveway and he apparently sniffed something out, so he dashed ahead and before I knew what was happening, he ran into our neighbours garden. Since I didn’t want to scream at him – ten pm and such – I was totally prepared to follow him. But luckily he seemed to remember, that humans sometimes say things and it’s sometimes nicer to follow them. So he came back to me – or he realized he was in the dark and got scared. No idea xD Buuuut I was a bit cross with him and first reaction was, telling my parents, I won’t do it again. Doggo duty. In the past we never had these problems, but ever since he is a really old dog, he’s just doing things his way. I took it back by now. I will do doggo duty with him again. Having him on the leash, every time we go out. That’s that :] No more horse poop and no more running off into neighbours garden. No, dear doggo, these times are over! ;)
What else? Oh right, I’ve been visiting Chinese embroidery course. Sadly we didn’t do that much embroidery though. It was mostly looking at awesome works and learning a bit technic. Somehow I was totally prepared to start stitch something beautiful… well, guess that didn’t happen. Maybe I should dig out my embroideries and get back to that :]

Ceramic related a friend of mine made me think of something.
I would be very happy to paint for every blaeo member, who would like me to make something for them. Only thing I would want is the actual prize I have to pay for doing the whole thing and the shipping. Nothing else.
Maybe that is interesting for some of you. You know where to find me ;)

Let’s talk about this real quick. I DIDN’T DO THIS ON PURPOSE! In fact I am totally against it. Now why did I play it? Because I was challenged by some totally mean Member of the PoP group (you’re reading this, I know it! :P ) and instead of swapping it… I decided to do this. Because I will be done with it! Never to play it again! NEVER EVER! Now I just need to find some plain knitting I can do, while reading this. It’s just… falls over

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

10 hours, 30 of 30 achievements, ★★★★☆

More

First off: I'm no Guardians of the Galaxy fan. I totally don't get that. The humour, the connection to the other Marvel stories, the whole setup. But! I love Telltale games! (One excluded…) So I wanted this! And I was hyped to play it!
After a pretty bumpy start I started to really like it. Sure it's not as great as TwD or as funny as the Borderlands one, but it's pretty good by itself! I especially liked how we get to control the teammates. Occasionally we get to see parts completely out of their point of view, while in a fight we swap from one to the other.
Since we get to learn about the background, they grew on me. Still I am irritated by a few things. Maybe because I'm not so much into the Guardians and don't know everything about them. They just seem a bit different from the Movie. Mostly how they look I guess. Which brings me to one point that really bugged me at first: I love the comic style of the TT games. Totally not there in this game. It's animated not comic. Took me a while to get used to it. Buuuut in the end it works and I loved it as well. And OFC I loved the music! At one fight I even sang happily along - yeah, I'm one of those ppl :] :D
Recommendation? YES!


Cat Story ahead!
We all know how annoying Ameno can be. Sitting next to my bed in the middle of the night and scratching happily away until I react. So I turned on the light and since I knew if I’d chase after him, he would just sprint down the stairs. I didn’t follow him, I just waited. And he returned. Flopped down in front of the window and was all chill. Totally not convincing! So I got up and wanted to put him in his bed. Instead Ameno jumped up, got into sprinting mode and rushed up the cat tree, curled up in his sleeping place and was all: “I didn’t do anything! I’m just sleeping here!” Well that’s certainly a way to do it. After that he was peaceful for a few hours.
Also I had a tooth removed and lay all exhausted in bed. Normally Ameno would be downstairs and meowing and all that, instead he was on my bed and kept me company. That was real sweet of him. Never expected him to be so sensitive <3

So I had a rather tough time. Not only was a tooth removed and I’m feeling exhausted from that, but my doc and I decided we shall change my meds. So in order to do that, we are currently lowering my meds aaaaand… yeah, I really don’t feel good :( It’s like somebody pulled the plug and my energy is gone. On the other hand I managed to do some artsy stuff on Sunday. So yay to that! (Not ceramic painting. I didn’t feel like leaving the house :( )
Also I totally surprised a lovely blaeo friend and that was the BEST! <3

That's it! I'm done! No more Zombie slaughtering - although I certainly put Rick and Friends to shame! 20 Zombies in under 5 sec. Come on, Rick! That's real Zombie killing!
Originally I got both How To Survive games to play with a friend. That never happened. So now I've beaten the whole thing on my own. But I'm really not good with these games. And I really have no ambition to complete it either. It's just too much. But I did lots of Zombie killing and I rescued a few ppl. So that's fine.
I really like the crafting thing. Which is mostly why it caught my interest in the first place. But MAN! The bags are way too small to carry all the crap around. Bc you never know what you might need. And I never thought about leaving them at a smart place. Things don't disapeare. That's really nice. Also really nice is how the music tells you how much Zombies are incoming. Pretty handy really.
Right. I'm a bit at loss, what else to say about it.
But if you like Hack and Slash/Survival/Zombie games, I'm sure you'll enjoy this. So:
Recommendation? If you like the above; yes :)

This is pure madness! HLTB has 6 1/2 - 9h for this game. It took me 18! Ok, so I have a cat who occasionally gets up and sits in front of the monitor, so I have to take breaks. Yes, I sometimes stare at the words and don't get it, bc either my brain has a lag or… I just don't get the stock thing. Right, that already happened with the first game :]
With this game everything is purrfect. If only they would have let out the whole stock, smart ass stuff. Purely the story of our heroes - or such. And bam! Story super short, Nin enjoys the reading, everybody happy. But it's not. So everything is purrfect apart from the story - for me. It's just too much, too dry, too tedious!
So I still have the third part ahead. I shall not place it in either batch nor in ABC list or such. NEVER AGAIN! I kinda hope it'll be lighter, but I had that hope with the second already and look how that worked out. So… yeah, I should just assume loads of dry stock stuff and I might just encounter a surprise. When ever I have enough courage to do this…
Recommendation? Errrrr…. Can we not talk about this? :]

Woho! More ABC progress!

Cat Story ahead!
Since we had a bit of sunshine, we did the obvious: visit the garden. After setting up the cat fence, it’s all safe and ready for warmer weather already. In February o.o So we did, what we normally do. Me lazing around, Ameno sneaking around the garden, scaring the occasional birdie and Tizio trying to be a super brave cat and not getting scared by scary birdies. Na, not true really, he loves sitting underneath a bush and having a bird land in said bush. He even starts talking with them – doesn’t help though. Since Tizio decided it might be safe with three humans, one doggo and his cat mate, he bounced around the flowerbed. And after that he wanted to inspect the shed of my dad. Meanwhile Ameno snooped out birdies and sat in the bushes. So when Tizio was in front of the shed, he saw this white fluff sitting there. He must have realized it was Ameno, otherwise he would have run for it. But instead he arched his back and made himself bigger. I even wondered if he would start hissing or growling, but nope. Ameno on the other hand realized something was going on and came over real careful. Like “really don’t wanna set that big cat off!” The closer he got, the more Tizio shrank back in normal size, but they were still super careful with each other. Until they were face to face, and suddenly Tizio shoved his nose in Amenos face and was all happy. Buuuuuut he didn’t really turn his back on Ameno. Super funny though. That never happened before.

eden*

9 hours, no achievements, ★★★☆☆

More

I don't like Kinetic Novels that much. I really like the choices in my VNs! That being said, eden* was different. I started it with setting a timer of an hour, so I'd at least play that much per day. The timer ended and I kept reading. Like I can at least get to the next change in scene. Or a bit more. Or until dinner is ready or what ever. Mhm, so… I guess it's safe to say I liked it! Reading it was pleasant. (While writing these words, I've been thinking. Apparently I now like 3 KNs versus 3 unliked. I think. Maybe I'm forgetting some o.o)
Ok, that's done. Now to the game. The music was rly nice, so where most of the graphics - can I just say how much the hands in this game freaked me out? Something about them was just totally off! And yes, obviously the story. Although it got dark and sad, it didn't manage to make me cry though, so I didn't get THAT attached to it. Also I get why… Sion somehow had to be a girl but at the same time - WHY? It would have worked out just the same if she had been a woman, right? And I wouldn't sit here and wonder. And it's just stupid wondering, bc she was not a girl at all and he loved her for who she was and not for what she looked like, but still. And yes, I've read some precarious Mangas and stuff, still this seems… I just don't feel that happy about it! And I feel stupid for thinking that much about it! AAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Ok, I'm quiet now!
Recommendation? Yep :)


Crossroad

7 hours, 34 of 34 achievements, ★★★☆☆

More

Crossroad is a game about a girl called Lumy - I think she might be an elf since her mum is one? But not sure -, who is on her way to visit her gran in the forest. Wait? You think of little red riding hood? Oh, surprise! I did too - but only later, not right away. On her way she get's lost - maybe - and has to decide which way to go. By doing that she encounters different men - and yes, also one woman - with whom she get's acquainted. Or not so much. But she might also find her love. If we let her. I totally also got her killed - bc basically I can! (And it got me an achievement.)
After my last encounter with a Russian VN I tried to stay a bit clear of them, but I really gotta say this one surprised me. It was light, rather pleasant to read and had some cute romance options. And although there clearly have been some errors in translation/grammar, they were not that bad, yk?
Recommendation? Sure, why not?


A Normal Lost Phone

2 hours, 13 of 13 achievements, ★★★☆☆

More

Wow, this surprised me a lot! I never saw coming where this was going!
So I started out believing the former owner of the "Lost Phone" was a girl named Sam. Until I started reading the first messages from dad… and figured Sam is a boy who just turned 18 and has relationship problems. Yep, that's pretty much the start. From there on we dive deeper into Sams (Phone)history and get to know… er… them. It was pretty touching learning about Sams struggles and in the end it totally made sense, why the Phone got lost in the first place.
I rly liked how the Phone had music on it and that would just run in the background. And although it looked pretty simple - and rly was super short - it was a nice one. I felt a bit like a detective, not so much a nosy person rly. Bc who knows? Maybe Sam needed help after all and getting to know stuff about them might have helped sending help? Yeah, I'd probably totally tell myself that if I ever found a phone. Right. Which we did at some point. And we called somebody from the contact list and the owner came pick it up. Guess that's a nice thing to do really :)
Just a slight warning if you made it this far and haven't played the game nor own it, but think about it: If you're having trouble with gay/lesbian and trans ppl… feel warned :D Should I even say this? Oh well, I did now, I guess?
Recommendation? Yes.


Glass Masquerade

3 hours, 31 of 31 achievements, ★★★★☆

It might be a bad idea playing this while you can't sleep. Completely during the night. Or well not completely considering how short it can be/is. At some point I just stared at the mosaic pieces. BUT! Even lacking sleep I managed AND I had a blast!
This game is SO beautiful! I really, really, really love the glass puzzling. I only wish there had been more puzzles (honestly I thought about getting the DLCs, but it feels as if they are horribly expansive considering the rly short amount of playtime? Also no extra DLC cheevos…). Oh, also I wish the music… well changed more? Bc after three hours of playing this it started to really annoy me. Ops. Well, that's all! I love it! Next time not with music. Or stop music after an hour.
Oh damn, I want the second game! I want more like this! It's sooooooo beautiful! <3
Recommendation? Hell YES!


One Small Fire At A Time

6 hours, 21 of 21 achievements, ★★★☆☆

More

Janis lives in a madhouse, because she can't use magic. In a world were everybody else can use it, she it considered not normal. But at the same time she is not really mad either, she just… can't use magic. So trying to fit in is not always that easy - even in a madhouse. On top of that a commander was ordered to investigate the madhouse because they hand out mana potions to their inmates. Odd enough since Mana potions are super expensive, so how can they afford so?
Although we get to read the story from different views, the MC clearly is Janis, because we only get to decide things for her. The game has really nice drawings and a nice story. I liked how it mostly had classical music. Still, it was no game that overwhelmed me, took me by surprise. Uh, I dunno how to say this better. It liked it, but it was no WOW game, yk? ;)
Recommendation? Sure, why not?


Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story

2 hours, 10 of 10 achievements, ★★★☆☆

More

After having played "A normal Lost Phone" just a couple of days ago, I kinda thought this one would go in the same direction. But it had a totally different angle. Irritatingly enough I assumed pretty early where it was going - yeah, I only spent 2 hours in the game and was by then done with all achievements. Still, really early. As early as reading the messages from the first person to the owner of the phone. In between I got shortly distracted, but turns out I was right after all.
Again we had background music. I liked the pictures better. Also I kinda worry if ppl really leave hints for passwords all over! I'm pretty sure I don't but… well, I don't know rly o.o
I think the first one was better. Maybe because I felt closer to the story (can you say it like that?)? Honestly I dunno.
Recommendation? You've read the first one? So yeah, sure! It's short enough. Even if you just grabbed it as a free game. Also the theme is still interesting. So yeah, do it!


It’s odd giving both games the same amount of stars, since eden* is a better game. But rating Crossroad lower seems unfair as well. Oh well. I’ll just leave it that way :)

Cat Story ahead!
So we are having this super surprising February all of a sudden! Guess what that means? Right, Ameno off to the garden! So he way more balanced and calm. He sure loves his outdoor time. And although I’m pretty sure we will get some more cold days, I fear how he will react to that. Meowing without end!
Tizio tried something SOOOOOOOOO ridiculously stupid, I don’t even know what to say to it. I like every now and then some liquorice and therefore had a few lying openly on a plate. On my desk. Tizio chills a lot on my desk. Tizio has a sensitive nose. Tizio smelled something funny and set out to investigate. What did he find? Liquorice in tiny cat form (aka Katjes-Kinder). He tried it. Ok, I would totally understand him licking it and be done. Nope, he even wanted to chew on it. That was totally the moment I freaked and robbed him of it! Nooooooo, Mr T! No Liquorice for u! O.O
I’m very certain he tried the next day to eat a cantuccini. Can’t say for sure though. Yk one moment I’m sitting on the couch, having a bag of cookies in front of me. I left the living room to get some more coffee and when I come back there is a lonely cookie on the other sofa. My mum insisted she didn’t take a cantuccini. Also it was a bit wet. So I’ve put it on the couchtable. Shortly after Tizio jumps on the couch and… tries to reach the table and shoves his nose right into the cookie bag. Right. Thank you cat -.- I think we are starting to have a problem here.
Just for your information: I totally do not approve of this!

I took my privat lesson kid out to ceramic painting, since she always sees my mugs and seems to really like it. It looked like she enjoyed it a lot. But we didn’t finish, so we probably have to go next week some more. Although she did finish her mug – dots! \o/ But the little horse figurine was only started. I’ll totally get her hoked :D

BioShock™ Remastered

I'd put this for a long time on hold. Turns out, that was stupid. Turns out, it's a great game! It took me a while to get into it, but I had a fun time from pretty much start til end. (I was mildly annoyes it's a FP-Shooter, but wore my anti travel sickness wristbands right from the start and that prevented A LOT! I even got that comfortable with it, that I could play a while without, bc let's just face it: It is only a question of training. But rapid moving around was not doable without.)
I was very much intrigued by the story, I liked the sound and the setting. I liked how… well, I'll just call it steampunky, bc I have no better word for it. So I liked how steampunky it was.
It creeped me out! A lot! Luckily it never managed to jump-scare me, I might have quit it if it had. But nope, I was not constantly terrified :D Actually quite the opposite. The more I played, the sure I felt about the whole thing. So when I was up for the final boss I even set the difficulty from normal to hardmode. It worked. Okay, maybe it took me a couple of tries, but it never seemed impossible - so yeah, second time I rushed through the whole thing to get all cheevos. I even tried the extra maps and did everything there. Only not the last one with time run. It just… seemed too time consuming, so nope, onto other games.
I really liked it. I liked the unexpected turn and the moment you realize how it makes sense. I normally wonder how the hero of the story ends up where ever he is and turns into a hero at one point or another. Here I just thought: Ok, he came into this strange situation and to get to safety he has to just do shit. I was happy enough to take this as reason, but the game delivered us a way better reason. I really liked that!
Just a mild critic: Since I played it in English, the German woman… well her German English was good, I guess, but her German was bad. Funny how actors imitate the German English but not get it right the other way round - yeah, I complain about that in Shows as well, bc that's how I am!
Yeah, so I'm running out of things to say right now - although there is probably more. I'll just stop and move to the final question:
Recommendation? Yep!

I won the base game a while ago and played the game at the time. At some point I managed to get a hold of the DLCs and now I finally had the chance of getting back to it and completing it! I really liked the game! Mostly because it shows us things in Japan and tells us stuff about it. Mainly Tokyo, but a few things are at different places as well. I already knew a couple of things, after having read a pretty nice book about Japan, but this was a completely different approach to getting to know things.
On the side we have two romance options for our male hero - although I gave him my nick, so it felt female, but wasn't female. That was a bit ood. Never mind though, right? :D
I kinda wish they would make more of this. Like for different parts in Japan too. Yeah, I know, that's a big dream. I might as well get on a plain and just look at the real stuff. But then again a game is a bit cheaper and in the end I might know what I wanna see more :]
Recommendation? Your a Japan Fan? Yep!


Cat Story ahead!
Tizio is a real meany! One of my online writing and gaming friends finally comes back – moving, internet and school stuff going on – and we are so ready to finally play something! So Tizio decided to sit on my PC casing, which I honestly don’t like bc he is a big cat and therefore I always push he down. He doesn’t really care and tries it again and again. So I shoved him down. And before I realized it he was back up and walked off over the front. The power button for my PC is on top at the front. Guess what? He stepped on it. He totally switched my PC off! And there you sit, happily chatting and… over and out. Really irritating! Luckily we hadn’t started gaming yet :D
We had the other day a workman over to measure out the basement staircase – we wanna redo the kitchen/dinner area and since it’s open to the cellar, it’s only sensible to also redo the stairs. My mum locked the dog into the living room. So when the bell rang, Ameno was a bit at loss, at what he could do. Normally he would hide in the living room somewhere, but… that was locked! So he ran around like a maniac in my room. Over the desk, to the stairs, only to turn around again, crawl underneath the cupboard, hide inside the box and so on. I finally closed the door, so he might calm down a bit. Only prob: the dog kept on barking occasionally, so Ameno was still super antsy and had still no good place to hide. In the end he crawled on my desk behind a speaker and then underneath a board on my desk. It’s like: Is there any more hiding place? Actually I don’t think so. He was pretty relieved though once the guy was gone again. I didn’t tell him, they’ll be back. Only good thing about that is the offer from my dad to stay at his flat for work during the time. With the cats! After he refused us visiting, bc my cats leave behind that much fur. So yeah, we are allowed to do that this time! Massive moving on my part I guess thinking

Nothing new on the RL front really. But I did some nice ceramicpainting and I’m happy with it :)

I like being a Detective. In this one we had the chance to be a Tek Detective. Which was interesting in itself, since Robos are supposed to be so logical and stuff. In fact we can be rather emotional though. I liked that. "Does this unit have a soul?" Guess it does!
So we are confronted with the problems of disappearing Teks. Although not assigned to the case, we try to solve it. Because that's what we do! Truth! We getcha! But wait… stuff is not as straightforward! In between we even recommend a new job to another Tek, we encounter Tek Lovers and hatred. Uh man, not as plain as we would have thought. All the while we just sit in a cart and ppl - err, Teks, enter and leave. And yes, one can even solve cases this way, without moving a bit!
The game was rather nice. Simple and short but nice. It looks good, the sounds fits. It even works how we only ever chat in written form with the other Teks. I didn't sit out the whole developer comments though. I might have done it, if at least this was in audio, but nope. But it's a nice idea. And I'm indeed left wondering how both ends would work out.
Recommendation? Yep, sure

I really don't know what to make of this one! I have NO CLUE! The graphic is nice enough, so is the music and even the writing is good. Man, I even enjoyed the story at parts. But I hate it just as much. No, not hate. It made me horrible sad. I'm not even sad for Sam(antha), no but for myself. It's as if this game held up a mirror and tried to show the whole world how I feel. And that is horrible!
Irritating really. I just now played Night in the Woods and already felt… a connection to Mae's depression, but now this? It's way worse. I mean, it was that irritating, I might have said to my mum, I feel as if I might be a reborn Coleridge. Is that something nice to think? Ugh, probably not. Considering what a sad man he supposedly was. But then… it would explain my love for England and… I might still turn into a famous writer. Hurray to that.
Ugh. Unhappy Nin here.
So yeah, this is no review AT ALL! Maybe I shouldn't hide this away in a review box, buuuuuut I still do this ;)
Recommendation? I dunno!


Cat Story ahead!
Just a short one, since I’m late: Tizio was totally innocent sleeping in my bed. Ameno came around, craving attention, scratching my bed and finally jumping up, to get… dunno what. Until he stumbled across Tizio aaaaand decided it’s a nice thing to attack. Yep, sleepy time was over. At least for Tizio who jumped out of bed and rushed off – Ameno right on his tail. Poor bby.
Also I took Ameno on a trip. I actually wanted to go see the vet with him, since he is sneezing a lot and overall didn’t sound that good. At least Friday night. So I put the cat in the box. Box in the car. On, on we go! Ok, but normally the parking lot is packed. Uh-oh. So yep, I totally check the opening times, only to realizes I’m like 1 ½ h too late. So back we go. Ameno decided he is not totally pissed at me. But he had to check the whole place once we got back. Just in case. You never know if ppl change stuff, right?

Nothing too exciting happened this week. Apart from me just being exhausted from EVERYTHING and at the same time struggling every night to go to bed and get sleep. Have not been painting. But I picked up the mug. And honestly, it turned out awesomely! And I gave it straight away to my mum. And I was asked on Instagram if I’d put it up on the shop and sell it. Soooo I guess I have to make it at least one more time :]
No idea how to get the pic link from insta. Too lazy to upload it right now. Sry. So Mary Poppins Mug -> Instagram profile ;) <3

I don't even know when I last played a… eh, 2D, platform, what ever game? It's been a while. Guess, because I normally stay clear of them. Both in getting, as well as in playing. But I did it. LOADS of jumping included - mostly because it seems like Mae moves sometimes quicker if you jump. Yeah. Also bc you basically have to jump to get on at one point or another. Turns out… I actually can do it. I'm no jumping pro - will never be - but, yeah, it worked. More or less.
So what can I say about the game? I didn't like the 2D part - never will. I didn't like the jumping - never will. But. I liked: The music. The atmosphere. The characters. The jokes. The mood. The Story! And then not, bc at times it was way too close. And sad. And depressing. And touching. Only to realize it is NOT the same! I'm most certainly not like Mae! Although yes, I totally see myself getting obsessed over a ghost dating sim nod nod But her development after that not. But her fear - yes. Her anxiety - yes. Her wish for safety and everything - yes.
I'm still not sure if the game has a deeper meaning to it or not. And that's ok. I'm also not sure if they were trying to say something with the different animals. But I certainly liked who multi-animal this game was and how little prejudice and racism there was bc of the difference.
But MAN! It sure was weird O.O
Yeah, end. Over and out.
Recommendation? For 2D/platform enjoyers: yes, go for it!


Cat Story ahead!
Here is a cat story! I’m doing this!
Thanks to my brother having had birthday ( a while ago), we had a family… er… come together? With eating out (yours truly was not happy :( ) und afterwards being a while at their place. Their as in my bro and his waifu. And cats! Two gurl cats! One a tiny one, that quacks/croaks like Ameno but with a highpitched voice like Tizio. And the other one is a big Norwegian (although for the race she is pretty slime and small I guess, just like Tizio is a small Ragdoll) and a bit… easy to frighten just like Tizio. Also she is just as fluffy as my Boys. And Damn! Sooooo purrrretty! (I still think there should have been baby cats from her and Tizio but damn, I totally screwed that myself :D )
So yeah, I got to pet those to Ladys. They seemed to be pleased with my cat petting skill, so that’s nice. Also when I got back home, my boys… were interested in the different cat smell. Yay to adventure for everyone! \o/

Ok, what can I say? My week seemed super busy. Which is not really true. But! I have been to a hair… dresser? Cutter? Uh, whatever. I’m shorthaired now. I’ll think about getting colours. I’m intently thinking about purple. I shall report what the result of these thoughts will be :D
Also I’ve been to a musical with my mum on Thursday. Mary Poppins! I ALWAYS loved the movie. So I was suuuuuper irritated at first, because the musical is not the same. Until we bought a program in the brake and I realized it was based on the books and not just the movie. I loved it! Next to phantom of the opera I like this one the best from all the musicals I’ve seen so far! And I decided I have to read the Mary Poppins Books! \o/
What else? Right, while being on this dinner thing with my fam I saw a woman at another table and she had some awesome tattoos. Like panther spots. Well I never thought of that, but I think I might finally know what kinda tattoo I want, if I ever really get one (apart from a lily, Ninglor in Elvish and something about my cats. Yeah, that nod).

Oh. Painting. Right. Mary Poppins inspired me! So next week there will be a Mary Poppins in spired mug happy <3

Dad Tip #67 - Try to exercise regularly

Ps: I decided to challenge me to play a certain amount of games this year. I’m not yet sure about the number. Either 4 games per month => 48, not that much, right. Yeah. No. That doesn’t work. Ok, either 6 games/month => 72 ooooooor 100 games. So yeah. I’m doing this. Maybe if I reach 72 I can see if there is enough year left for 100 :D
Pps: Oh, and I want to finish both Batch and ABC Challenge. I mean, how long am I going to drag both of them on and on and on? Embarrassing, right?

Wow!
So I got Danganronpa from my secret Santa (thanks again <3) and I was PoP challenged to play it (thank you too! <3) AND it it part of the monthly (hurray!)! I was a bit worried about the expected playtime, but in the end I had more month left then game, so that turned out great :]
I had a blast with it! Although I was super skeptic at first, both with the setup of the game and the killing. The moment the first blood turned up I was like "Are you fu* kidding me??" - it's pink just so you know. But then the real thing started. The investigation. And MAN! I loved it! I loved the trials! I loved the twisted thinking and everything! I loved not knowing what the heck was going on and gradually working bits and pieces out.
I also love how I DID NOT! get motion sickness! (Apparently some folks had trouble with it, so I'm this time on the lucky side!)
In case you're going for cheevos like *cough* me, this has a lot of grinding in the end cough cough (And if you fail to start the grinding part rightly, one extra grinding extra mode. Yeah, loads of extra time involved!) But since I liked the game and I like cheevos in games, that I like - and even more so cheevos I feel I can achieve - I did it! Woho! Loads of gaming time! \o/
In the end the whole concept worked out for me! I really enjoyed it - although honestly, why are the girls all so… yeah, what ever and the guys so meeeh? Just my opinion. Also not all boys where meeeh, but just look at the majority and you might get, what I'm thinking off ;)
Also is it just me or is Hiro the WORST character in the game? Obv not counting the mastermind and stuff ;)
Recommendation? Hell yes!


Cat Story ahead!
This’ll be a quick one and since I didn’t collect any cat story… nothing here Ô.Ô∫ (bad attempt at making a cat….)

Nothing here either. BUT do yourself a fav and check out my Instagram, bc I painted a mug for myself and. I. Am. SOOOOO! Happy. With. It! (Spoiler: HP Fans might love it ;) )

BIRDIES! So we have already been out dating Birdies in "Hatoful Boyfriend", now we are Attorneys on the hunt for truth and justice - err… or something like it. First case and we already fail with both, but never mind, it was conclusive and that's all that matters, right? RIGHT? Also we are hiding a (not so dark) past. And we are a super sharp eyed falcon birdie. With a clumsy sidekick. Well, he's not that bad actually. He just has zero tact. And knows how to cheat. And finds broken glass… with his feet -.- And well, yeah, maybe he is a shady character. But he was nice company and in the end he even was usefull - sometimes :]
We also had an absolutely heroic ending! But since I don't wanna spoil, I won't. But we totally where on the side of the ppl and stuff. And do not trust the big bad wolf! Just don't! Kitty cats are… semi ok. But not the wolfies! Parrots are a bit stupid (which is actually funny since there are enough parrots running around capable of talking and being smartass, I guess? I never had one, so I dunno rly.) and lions… well, we know how lions work, right? But don't call a kingfisher fisherman! Even if they fish! Or angel.
So yeah, they certainly worked with some animal cliche's but that was cute and adorable. The most disliked thing… it's black and white. Or brown and white? Sure they try to make it look oldschool that way. I get that. And that's alright. But I like my VNs to have colour and be bright and marvelous! \o/ Wait, Nin! That's your only complaint? That's pretty lousy, right? Are you sure, there is nothing else? Yep, I am. I liked this game. Though… not as much to get every outcome, but I had a pleasant time with it and I totally tried getting on the bottom of things. So I liked. I want more detective/truth finding games! GIMME MORE! \o/
Recommendation? Yep :)


Cat Story ahead!
So my dad asked me, if I’m starting to… forget things (he wasn’t that polite about it), but I just love telling this. So I do know, I already told you about it last time, but I shall do it again: Tizio decided to sleep on a regular basis in my bed. I’m pretty certain I told you about him falling out of the cat-tree. I think I might have mentioned how he also fell from the top of the shelf while sleeping. Ever since he avoided both places. Ever since he decided to spent more time in my bed. With me. Sleeping with me in my bed! <3 I could even push one feet under him, like real careful. And last night he was lying for some minutes between my legs like my old lady cat used to do. Until he decided that might not be safe and he might need to grab something to eat. Afterwards he just lazed on my blanket, but for a moment, we’ve been there! Me in catheaven! <3
Also my friend who had the baby last year, visited with the baby. And Tizio came face to face with said baby. And they seemed to like each other. Ameno had no time though. He was… uh, dunno where. Plus Ameno had a cold. A little one, nothing too serious. But completely my fault. I let him go into the garden and get some fresh air. That was clearly a mistake, bc afterwards he started sneezing like a maniac and… yeah, slight cold. But he’s better by now. Just no more garden for him, til it’s really warmer. And yes, we do have wintertime. But we have no snow and the temperature is so far hardly ever beneath 0°C. We still hope, but somehow… I don’t believe in winter and snow anymore :(

The rest? I still have a hard time motivating myself to do anything! But I’ve been painting – on Saturday. Since I couldn’t make myself go on Friday. Also I finished one book… I started last summer. And I started my 2019 book challenge. And since I tried to not overdo it (again) I said I wanted to read 12 books. Last year I wanted to read 24 – which rly is not that much, but I still failed. Dunno why I’m having such a hard time reading, since I used to love reading and I used to read min 100 pages per day. But that’s… like 15 years in the past. Now I’m too much into gaming/knitting/tv. My life sucks.
Also I got a hometrainer (do you call those bikes for home that as well?) aaaaaand since one can totally read while training, I can totally use that for both reading and… yeah, training. Let’s hope that’ll work out :D
So even if I’m against goals for the new year, I decided to do that. Reading, training, getting a few things sorted. But I didn’t decided them on new years eve, so I’m safe on that front :D
