#15 Monthly Status Update (September 2019)

Hi everyone! I can’t believe I’m saying it this way, but it’s FINALLY the end of summer holidays!!! And what that means for me is that I FINALLY got answers to a bunch of questions and doubts that were spacing me out for the last few months. Firstly, I managed to both get a bachelor’s degree and qualify for the second cycle of my studies!!!!! :D It was a tremendously hard task, some requirements were really hard to meet (eg. scoring at least 80% of points in one of my exams to even have the slightest chance to pass the course, which was due to the fact that I’ve only acquired a small fraction of the points from the tasks other than the exam), but in the end I somehow managed to pull them all off :)

Besides that, most of the other exciting stuff I expected to be able to share with you this month either got postponed for the n-th time in the row (getting a new PC…) or didn’t happen at all. Still, I’m so happy that I’m actually continuing my studies that I don’t really care about the stuff that didn’t go as planned these holidays ;D

But wait… doesn’t this all mean that the next 2 years are going to be an another period of my life with only small amounts of free time I could use for backlog fighting? Oh well… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#14 Monthly Status Update (August 2019)

Hi everyone! This month I’ve figured that if I don’t get a bachelor’s degree this year, I’m going to need to wait a whole year to finish off my leftover courses and start my second cycle studies, so… maybe it would be a good idea to buckle up and learn some more for my repeat exam session ;) I’m now in the middle of the exams, I’m not sure how all of this stuff will resolve and I’m a bit stressed, because of that, but thankfully at the end of September I should finally know everything regarding this and all of my other endeavors, like getting a new PC I’ve told you about recently which is still getting postponed and several other things I haven’t mentioned yet…

So yea, I’m kinda doing an update for the sake of consistency ¯\(ツ)/¯ I didn’t finish any games this month, but my backlog got several VERY exiting additions thanks to my trading luck this month! On the one hand that’s great, but on the other it would be even better if I somehow managed to find more time for actually playing them :P And that heavily depends on my exam results, which will determine whether I continue studying for two more years or take one year of break and go to work. Oh, the uncertainty…

See you next month with a hopefully much longer post talking about some exiting life stuff ;)

#13 Monthly Status Update (July 2019)

Hi everyone! I’m REALLY late with my monthly post this time (I usually post on the 1st or 2nd day of the month xD), but that’s because I was abroad without a PC and didn’t really feel like making a post with all of this HTML from my phone… Besides, the christian youth festival I was at was one of the greatest and most influential events in my whole life, so I avoided wasting too much time on the webs ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So, just as I’ve planned, these are still the Great Last 3-month Holidays of My Life and I’m still doing lots of awesome things, but my priorities shifted away from actually playing games, which means that I can say I’ve already failed my holiday’s Pietruszek’s Backlog Fighting Goals. It was a good idea, but in the end I decided to focus on other things. My other plans I mentioned in the previous post are still a thing, though. I have the money and a full part list for my new PC ready and I’m only waiting for my sister to finish renovating her bedroom first (right now my bedroom is dusty and cluttered with her stuff thanks to it). Regarding my new Steam curator, I need to write 10 reviews to make the page public and since I underestimated the amount of work it takes to write a quality review I only have 2 reviewed games so far. I need to set up some kind of plan for that and try to add new pieces on regular basis.

So yeah, lots of stuff happening, but not necessarily in the video game department. I’d talk even more about it, but it’s technically a July report, so I’ll save the fresh stuff for the August one to keep the things as they should be ;)

#12 Monthly Status Update (June 2019)

Hi everyone! It’s finally summertime! I still have no idea if I’ll pass all of my courses and get a bachelor’s degree (I need to wait for exam results and then most likely attend some things during a repeat exam session in September), but at least I can now get some rest :D

I’ve planned for these holidays to be the last real 3-month holidays of my life. For every next holiday season I’ll be trying to do summer internships until I get my master’s degree at which point I’ll just get a regular full-time job as a programmer. But to stay on topic - these are my last big holidays and I have a lot of fun things planned for them. I’ll spend some time away from home, but since I’m a homebody and a gamer, most of these things are indoor activities and many of them are connected to gaming one way or another. I’m considering reactivating my let’s play YT channel which has been abandoned for almost 3 years, maybe try reviewing a bunch of games and start my own Steam Curator (let me know what do you think about the name “Achievement Hunter’s point of view” or “Completionist’s point of view”) and most importantly: after 7 years of using my current laptop for gaming I’ll finally buy my first “for self-earned money” PC! And that means I should finally be able to play all the 3D games that got released in this decade! ;D I’ll (hopefully) write more about in my next monthly post, but now I’d like to list a few rules I’ve came up with, which will be my main gaming goals for this summer.

Pietruszek's Backlog Fighting Goals (July 1 - September 30)

  1. Play SG wins - play a bunch of SG wins to increase my (beaten + completed)% of them from 39% to at least 60%
  2. Complete started games - complete at least 40% of games I had marked as unfinished or beaten on July 1. Progress for this can goal can will be tracked using my Started Games Completion Challenge list
  3. Do not let the backlog grow - add less games to my backlog than I complete in the same month

When thinking about these goals I’ve tried to make them challenging for me, but also achievable. We’ll see in 3 months how well (or not) did it go for me :)

If you’re a person who also has the privilege of having a summer break, I encourage you to try setting some Backlog Fighting Goals for yourself! In my case I expect them to be a big motivator for backlog fighting in the following months, so if you also want to stay focused on this task, writing down some kind of goal list might be an idea worth considering ;)

#11 Monthly Status Update (May 2019)

Must… push…. on…..

Oh, hey! I didn’t see you there!… I’m still working on getting a bachelor’s degree, but because I had a conditional promotion last year, I now have more courses I need to pass despite of having just an usual amount of time… Gaming obviously became a tertiary way of spending time for me, but I still somehow managed to beat a couple of smaller games this month ;)

Hopefully I’ll manage to deal with all of my assignments and in a month I’ll be free to do whatever I want… I have a lot of different plans for the holidays, but among many other things they also include getting a new PC and utilizing it as much as possible and I’m really looking forward to that! Wish me luck! :)

#10 Monthly Status Update (April 2019)

Hi everyone! I don’t have too much time on my hands due to a bunch of imminent deadlines, so let’s make this update quick ;D

Out of the games I completed this month there is one I want to recommend:

  • The Wolf Among Us - one of the Telltale classics. The game turned out to be quite different than what I expected it to be (there’s a lot of violence and the world is VERY brutal), but I really enjoyed it and in my opinion it deserves all the praise it gets. It’s a real shame that the studio closed and the sequel got cancelled :<

#9 Monthly Status Update (March 2019)

Hi everyone! After 90h of backlog fighting in February, came the beginning of the last semester of my bachelor studies. I can already tell I’ll be an extremely busy person till the very end of June, but since new games don’t stop magically appearing in my library I still hope I’ll keep completing at least one or two a month ;D

Out of the games game I completed this month there is one I could recommend: ;)

  • Cogs - the game takes the simple premise of tile sliding puzzles where you need to assemble various mechanisms from pipes/cogs and adds a lot of nifty, fun stuff to it. The levels are three-dimensional which sometimes means nothing more than a need to solve separate puzzles placed on eg. 4 cube faces, but other times the 3D aspect is actually really important, because the puzzle is played on a side of a cylinder or both sides of a square board. It has around 50 puzzles which sometimes made me wish the game was a bit harder, but overall I really enjoyed the time I spent 100%-ing it.

#8 Monthly Status Update (February 2019)

Hi everyone! February was a great month of backlog fighting for me. After my exams, I had A LOT of free time when I didn’t have to study and could do (almost) whatever I wanted for a few weeks. My initial plan was to prioritize long games (which I wouldn’t finish this month), but when I noticed I had an unusually bad luck on SG (only won 1 game in the whole month despite entering a bunch of GAs daily - when you compare it with my previous win counts it’s crazy low) I also tried to complete some shorter games so that my completed/added games ratio would be as good as possible. I wasn’t able to make the ratio equal to 1 in time, but I was really close :D

Overall I played for over 90h during this month and had lots of fun! :)
March is already really busy for me (that’s why I post the update a whole week later than usual), but at least I’m entering this busy period super refreshed :)

Out of the games I completed this month there are two I could recommend:

  • MouseCraft - nice little puzzle game where you guide 3 mice moving in a Lemming-like fashion. There are 80 grid-based levels where you place tetromino-shaped blocks with various properties (normal blocks, TNT blocks, etc.), so that the rodents get all of the collectibles and safely reach the end. The later levels give you a lot of freedom, so there will be several ones which will make you think: “Hmmm, I don’t think it was the intended solution, but it works” or ones where it’s not that hard to “outsmart the developers” by beating the level without using all of the given items. I’ve also found a couple glitches, but it’s nothing which would affect my enjoyment of the game. Recommended for people who like simple, but good puzzle games.
  • Hero of the Kingdom II - Hero of the Kingdom is a series of casual laid-back adventure games done right. It’s hard to explain the gameplay if you’ve never seen it since it’s a very unique thing, but I guess “a top down point&click game where you collect dozens of various resources and do lots of quests which require you to get other types of resources which you can get from this guy if you first help him with X using things you can get elsewhere” is the best explanation I can think of. The second entry in the series doesn’t introduce too many changes to the formula, but it absolutely doesn’t need it! If you liked the first game you can be sure to enjoy this one as well <3

#7 Monthly Status Update (January 2019)

Hi everyone! January was the last month of my current semester (I’m in the middle of an exam session right now), so there wasn’t too much time to play for me. I also have no game recommendation for you this month. However, one thing that did change is that in the end I decided to follow the advice Narayan gave me below my previous post and I asked for removal of all of the movies from my BLEAO library which were screwing up my “Won on SteamGifts” stats since last month and “All games” stats since I joined the site. Now that they’ve been removed, I can finally start over with tracking these stats without the need to worry about any data distortions. From now on, I’ll be using this month as a new starting reference point for comparing them :)

#6 Monthly Status Update (December 2018)

Happy New Year everyone! The last month of 2018 was quite unusual for me. Firstly, I got 24 new games, out of which 16 are won SG. It’s one game won every two days! December made me realize that I need to start thinking about limiting my GA entries, because at this rate I’ll never manage to come anywhere close winning with my backlog :O
I guess now I’ll spend the next half a year thinking about how to determine which GAs to enter and which to skip since I’m already only entering for games that look interesting and I’d like to check them out xD

Secondly, since I joined BLAEO I had a notification on my “Won on Steamgifts” subpage saying that some of my games did not sync properly. I didn’t really care about that since I knew what it is that is not being synced: two seasons of Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight documentary. Well… I guess someone pushed it a little this month, so the sync completed successfully. Result? I’ve got 45 more “titles” on my won on Steamgifts list (they’re the things without the thumbnails) which completely destroyed my “Won on SteamGifts progress” statistics which you can see at the bottom of my posts. I guess now I need to watch the documentary if I want these percent values to come back to their normal level :V

Out of the games I completed this month there are two I really recommend (both are included on my list of choices for the January Monthly Theme):

  • Last Word - an original RPG with a great story, unique setting, unique JRPG-inspired battle system, unique system for unlocking new conversation options and unique uniqueness. The battles start to get a bit repetitive later in the game, but it doesn’t really matter since the story will hold you till the very very end. Includes two main endings (+ one easter egg ending) and a classy soundtrack. My only significant issue with it is the fixed-size small windowed mode which cannot be changed and which is apparently an engine limitation (you can force fullscreen mode, but it looks blurry). If you want to get both endings in one playthrough (like me), I recommend taking a peak at the guide before the end of each of the 5 chapters to make sure you have everything you should have before progressing further. Otherwise, there’s a New Game+ mode where you keep your level, which probably makes the second playthrough a lot faster. Last Word is an underrated gem I recommend to every person who isn’t scared of RPG Maker kind of games.
  • Snakebird - this indie gem is the definition of a perfect puzzle game. It’s very though so I wouldn’t recommend it if Portal is the hardest set of puzzles you’ve ever completed or if you’re one of these people who for some reason get frustrated by staring at the screen for 15 minutes without touching the keyboard. Otherwise - totally recommended for puzzle lovers! Cute art style, incredible puzzle design that will make you think “How could have someone designed puzzles that work so well?” and a catchy OST you’ll hum during your day while thinking about that one stupid level which is so small you can draw it up in your mind and keep thinking about approaches you haven’t tried yet, but the solution still escapes you :D
