Welcome to my little corner! Seretti’s profile

I’ve been the Queen of Procrastination but now I’ve (finally!) decided that it is time to tackle that backlog of mine. Planning ahead is difficult for me because I never know what game I’m in mood for the next day, but I’ve made some sort of attack plan (monthly lists) and hope I can stick to it so I’ll just play whatever. My goal is to beat at least one game every single week. Games won on Steamgifts will be prioritized.

Some rules that I’ve set for myself since joining BLAEO is:

  • One game at a time, or 2-3 games if they’re long ones (20+ hours). I need some variety :)
  • Only enter giveaways for games I am actually going to play.
  • Always check system requirements before buying games or entering giveaways. (Oh, Mad Max… How I want to play you so badly!)

As I have the memory of a goldfish, I’ll be posting weekly updates so I won’t forget anything special. Don’t expect anything great or lengthy though, because I wouldn’t be able to write something like that to save my life. xD I’ll just stick to the progress I’ve made so far.


Week #17 - 19 (July 24 - August 13, 2017)

Going on vacation tomorrow morning so won’t be able to play anything for the next couple of weeks. I’m not sure how I’ll deal with having no access to the internet, but I should survive. I think.

I started playing this before I realized how long it is (~18 hours), so I’ll start all over when I get back home. My memory is that of a goldfish, so I wouldn’t remember what I’ve done and what to do next.

Signed up for Skanda’s challenge with this SG win of mine. Not sure if I have others with 31+ achievements. It seems a bit short but considering that I’ll be away for nearly 2 weeks, I think it’s okay.
Looks like a fun game though, so can’t wait to start playing. :)

Week #15 (July 10 - 16, 2017)

I know it’s a bit early but I want to give you a head’s up on August, which is when I’ll be on vacation. I won’t have access to Steam, so any gaming is out of the question. That also means that I won’t be making any updates here for 2-3 weeks, since there won’t be any progress whatsoever to report on when it comes to my backlog.

Not much to report here concerning my beaten games.

Bayou Island left me a bit disappointed though. All I could think when I reached the end was “Was this it? Really? No…” I probably racked up some extra playtime from running back and forth, trying to figure out the code for the fuse box. Shouldn’t have been that hard, but I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. xD

Also, It’s Spring Again has a wonderful art style, which is why I wanted the game in the first place. Anyone agree with me? If you know other games with similar art style, please, please PLEASE, let me know! I’d love you forever if you do <3

Deponia: The Complete Journey is my new choice for the monthly theme here on BLAEO since Rain World didn’t run very well. I’ve previously played the first game, as seen here, so I knew what to do, at least for the most part. I’m really excited to see how the story continues!

Murder Mystery Adventure is plain confusing. I have no clue what to do, really… Sure, the game explains things, but I’m still so very lost. Mark my words, game. I will beat you!

New Additions

I know, I know! Too many new games in just a week, but come on… Let a girl have her shopping sprees, especially when she has to improve her group stats on SG!:D

Week #14 (July 3 - 9, 2017)

I really want a slight tan this summer, and that has interfered with my playtime a tad bit. So far it has been raining for the most part so when they sun shows up, I’ll take the opportunity to get some color. People always complain about how pale I am, and sometimes even argue what’s paler, me or a white sheet. Not this year! You can crack jokes about my stupidity, that’s fine, but I will not tolerate ones about my skin tone. xD

July’s PPU challenge was too easy this time, as I finished it in a couple of days. Come on devs, give us a real challenge, like last month! :D
Now, if only I could win the lottery so I could keep up with all the DLC for PPU. Not too long ago, I was about half-way with my achievement hunting but now I’m very far away from my goal which makes me kinda sad. (I know I’m silly, but I like my perfect games on Steam.)

Currently on episode Sam & Max 302: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak and I’ve enjoyed the adventure so far. I do however think that I’ve missed ALOT of the story by not having played season 1 & 2 out of the series. At least that’s how it feels…

I’m not really sure if it’s my PC or if Paws: A Shelter 2 Game is buggy, but I can’t make much progress after I lose mama Lynx. I just get stuck in bushes or something. I’ve tried to tinker with settings and whatnot, but I always get stuck in the same area. I’m giving up on this game for now, but will try in a week or two again. By then I’ll only have a few of days finish since I won it in a Playing Appreciated giveaway, but what’s a girl to do?

I picked Rain World for my first monthly theme here, and I’ll get right on it tomorrow, Monday, as I’ve felt a bit too distracted during this weekend. I’ve heard that it’s quite difficult, so hopefully I can manage to complete the game within the next 2.5 weeks. From the little gameplay I’ve seen of it, I suspect that I’ll have a hard time putting the controller away when it’s bedtime. Or food time. Or time for anything else of importance. xD

Week #3 - 13 (April 17 - July 2, 2017)

First off, I’d like to apologize for my inactivity, but I had some personal issues to take care of. Now that I’ve dealt with those problems, I can continue dealing with my backlog, which has grown tremendously in the past 3 months. I have nothing but time on my hands though, so I think I can do a good job during the summer.

I’m going to keep this quite short, and not do much formatting, since I need to get some sleep very soon. Keyboards are never comfortable pillows.

Week #2 (April 10 - 16, 2017)

This week has been busy and a lot of stuff has gotten in the way of my backlog assassination, but I’m really, really hoping that I will have more time for that in the near future. I also realized that I forgot to add new games to my previous post, so I’ve added it for both weeks. Anyway, let’s move on to my current progress:

Beaten / Completed

  • Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride

  • Kentucky Route Zero
    Kentucky Route Zero

    7 hours playtime

    no achievements

I’ve marked Kentucky Route Zero as unfinished, despite listing it as beaten in this post, simply because I will not be able to continue until act V is released. I’ve gotten as far as I can for now, so in that regard, it’s ‘beaten’.

  • Stardew Valley
    Stardew Valley

    38 minutes playtime

Both games seem really, really fun and I can’t wait to continue both. I can already tell that Stardew Valley is going to be a real challenge, mainly because I’m not the least bit experienced with these kinds of games. There’s just so many things to keep an eye on and I have no clue if I will be able to become the great farmer I want to be.

New Additions (April 3 - 16, 2017)

Besides being busy, I’ve also managed to get some new games through trading or being very lucky on SG in the past 2 weeks. Gotta start beating games faster if I want to make a dent in my backlog, I guess.

Week #1 (April 3 - 9, 2017)

I’ve enjoyed my first week here on BLAEO and managed to feel extra motivated to deal with my backlog. Learning how this site works by reading guides and posts by other members also took some time, but it was fun and interesting. I just wish I could post such lengthy and well-written reviews / progress reports myself, but oh well…
But enough of my rambling, let’s get down to business:

All of these were such short games that it doesn’t feel like such a huge accomplishment to have beaten them all in my first week. I mean, The Pit and the Pendulum took me a mere 20 minutes to finish (after which I just waited for my card drops).
