Ohai! I'm Dawn and I have a looooot of games. Shikikan_Dawn’s profile
But so do you and that’s why you’re here, huh?
I’m trying to get a grip on my backlog on both PS5 and Steam [Deck]. My weaknesses are cute indie games and bundles/sales. My mentality goes from, “I have too many games” to “ooh, that’s a good price” in an instant and then there’s no hope for me ;-; So… In an effort to be proactive and thanks to the recommendation of a Steam friend, here I am!
I play a little bit of everything, but gravitate towards RPGs, simulation, strategy, and hidden object games. Pixel graphics and hand drawn art styles are a huge plus. Since getting a Steam Deck, I’ve also had a greater appreciate for adult only games, which my wife and I giggle about x)
Wish me luck~
Hello, hello~ Hope you had a good weekend.
This week, I completed Garden in! from my 2023 goals list. I just need to post my review and I can cross it off the list ^^
And I’m still plugging away at Wild Hearts. I’ve unlocked the final area and EA added another couple of monsters, so I’ll be here for a while longer.
And here are some of my favourite acquisitions from the Spring Sale:
I’m on a bit of a gardening kick. Apparently ^^; Garden Galaxy is heavily RNG dependent and it’ll take you hours to create the perfect gardenscape. Which is just fine with me because it’s a very peaceful experience and just the thing to tuck into right before bed.
Dave the Diver is probably going to be one of my favourite games of 2023. Just putting that out there. I’m still waiting on my physical copy of Dredge (grrrr), though, so we’ll see which is the better fishing game.
I’ve been playing a lot of management sims as well.
Last, but certainly not least, we have Beacon Pines, which was recommended to me by a friend. Good God it’s a rollercoaster ride so far. I’m trying not to blaze right through it, but I’m so intrigued by the plot. A loooot of “wtf?!” moments (in a good way).
Honourable mentions go to Simmiland. It isn’t the type of game that holds your hand; you’re expected to experiment until you figure out what works and what doesn’t. And a lot of what I’ve done so far has not worked xD I definitely need to experiment more, but it’s an interesting mixture of card game and god game just from the short time I’ve spent with it.
What are you folks currently playing? Have a good week!
I’m back! I haven’t completed anything this week, but I have played a few titles recently that I think deserve some attention. I’ve been really into mellow games of late, though I am playing Danganronpa 2 on PSVita and that is a rollercoaster @-@ Like with the first game, I am so floored by the devious minds behind the mystery and intrigue that unfolds.
I've also sampled a tiny bit of these, but I haven't gotten my thoughts together as of yet:
First post! Woot! Gonna try to do these weekly, but you know how that goes ^~^;
I play primarily on Steam Deck, so I’m still trying to figure out what can be comfortable competed on there and editing my goals list for 2023 accordingly. So far, I’ve got 30-ish games and they’re broken into two categories:
- Games I have never played, but want to
- Games I’ve started, but need to clean up the last few achievements.
This weekend, I tackled the clicker game Voodoo Garden. It falls into that second category. All I had left were some of the grindier achievements (collect x amount of this, craft x amount of that) and the longest one was getting to level 30. I was at level 28 when I started, but the entire process still took six hours of mostly idle play. Phew.
I think these shorter titles are just the small victories I need to gear me up for larger ones. I’m currently playing Wild Hearts on PS5 and that’s been sucking up huge amounts of my time. 23/49 trophies and it’s been a really good time!
Once they add a dedicated photo mode, you better believe I’ll be posting screenshots. Okay, maybe just a couple.

Feeling cute in my doggo headgear, might delete later.
But I digress. This is about Steam backlog x)
I’ve also tried Shantae and the Seven Sirens recently, at the recommendation of a friend. I completely suck at platformers/Metroidvanias, but this has been very accessible! I started in beginner mode and actually found that to be too easy (you can literally one-shot bosses) so I changed it to the classic mode and found it to be possible even for someone as clumsy as me. Haha~ Also digging the primarily female cast, art style, and of course the transformations to solve puzzles. Definitely adding it to my 2023 goals.
Next up for cleanup:
That’s all for now! Thanks for reading <3
