- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- APE OUT
- Hard West
- Hard West: Scars of Freedom
- Freedom Planet
Great but short little RPG. The combat was fairly simple but the game more than made up for that with how charming it was! A really cozy game to play on Halloween (or the day after it, oops). Still need to play through the Grubbins DLC.
Out of the few Visual Novels I’ve played/finished this is hands-down my favourite so far! Great story with multiple protags, twists and turns and a great sense of humour. The only negative was how clunky the interface controls were, not intuitive at all. Looking to get the rest of the achievements somewhere next year.
Got in the mood to play some Star Wars games after watching the first 2 episodes of The Mandalorian and remembered that I had this game. I was only familiar with the original Battlefront since I played a shit ton of that back at a friends house, so this was all new to me!
Visually stunning but I felt the gameplay was a little lacking in variety. It’s kind of Hotline Miami-like but you don’t have as a many options to tackle a level. You could punch enemies or use them as human meat shields and throw them at enemies. Not as great as I hoped but still a solid experience if you get it in a sale.
After really enjoying Transformed earlier this year I had somewhat high hopes for this game. Sadly it just didn’t even come close to the greatness of Transformed. Track and song variety was poor, they blended together most of the time and only covered a handful of SEGA franchises. I also felt that the tracks were very uninspired and didn’t do anything exciting. Overall it just felt like your run-of-the-mill Mario Kart clone. Shame.
An abandoned Early Acces game that broke somewhere in one of the last levels (I think? Doesn’t really show you which level you’re at). Kinda counting this one as beaten as I don’t want to play through this game all over again, just to play a shitty puzzle platformer. A save system would’ve helped.
Update #13: October 2019
Not as many Steam games finished as last month as I’ve been really in a PS4 mood the last few weeks. Just beat Concrete Genie and the MediEvil remake recently, which were both excellent!
Steam Sale Purchases:
Finished the Captain Scarlett and Torgue DLC as well.
Update #12: September 2019
The month of Point & Clicks, terrible VNs and a random assortment of games!
Update #11: August 2019
Little early, but I just recently got a Switch so that has been eating up my time.
And Pegasus-5: Gone Astray, which is profile features limited.
Update #10: July 2019
Got a bunch of games in the Bethesda sale namely Dishonored - Definitive Edition, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Prey - Deluxe Edition and RAGE and it’s DLC.

Update #7: March 18th - 31st 2019
Pretty decent Half-Life 2 mod, not much to say about it. Some of the enviroments looked really great though.
Awesome, awesome game. I can definitely see why this is a cult classic after beating it, even though the endgame kinda sucks. It had a lot of really great characters and quests (the Ocean House Hotel and the one in an abandoned hospital were my favourites). Combat isn’t the greatest but I got used to it after a while.
I played through it as a gunslinging Toreador and near the end of the game I maxed out Perception, Firearms and Celerity and killed the final boss easily. I’m definitely going to replay this game as a Malkavian and a Nosferatu later this year!
Update #6: March 11th - 17th 2019
It was like a little under 10 euros over on cdkeys so I figured I give it a shot. It’s pretty decent so far.
This game was picked by skanda for this month’s Challenge Me, thank you!
A pretty okay visual novel type game. The game itself is not very long, even with 5 different endings. I didn’t exactly hate it but I didn’t love it either.
The artstyle reminded me a lot of an older Scooby Doo cartoon (Mystery Incorporated if I’m not mistaken) which wasn’t too suprising given that they also said they took inspiration from it in the Art Book.
What did frustrate me when I was going for the different endings is that there is no way to skip texts, essentially forcing you to click through the same dialogue 5 different times just to get all achievements.
Update #5: March 4th – 10th 2019
I’ve wanted to play the original Diablo for the longest time and seeing it get a digital release on GOG this week, I just had to grab it. Also threw in Zafehouse: Diaries because it was dirt cheap.
Just the first episode unfortunately but I plan to get the rest of the episodes in a Steam Sale.
Not the biggest fan of puzzle games but I really enjoyed this! I just put on some older episodes of MBMBaM, relaxed and puzzled away.
I had an old save from 2016 and only needed to beat like 2 more missions to finish it… so I did today. It was pretty decent.
