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!

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.

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.

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.

I actually quite enjoyed this even though the game is not perfect by any means. The shooting is really bad but it was kind of refreshing to play characters that were kind of assholes.

Pretty decent ARPG, not one of my favorites. It got a bit same-y towards the end and enemies take way too long to kill. The final boss took me a while to figure out but when I got his pattern down it was pretty doable. Fuck his Vampire Totems though.

Pretty good sequel. Shooting felt a lot better (except for the SMGs) and the automatic snap cover system being replaced with a toggle was much appreciated. I had to turn on the Steady Cam because I got a little nauseous from the original camera, it was pretty terrible.

I don’t play a lot of older shooters but this was one was really solid!

The weapons felt really good to use, especially the Concussion Rifle. It was really satisfying to fire it and kill a whole group of Stormtroopers in one go. I did tend to get lost quite often in maps (especially in that sewer level) because of the maze-like level design and the thousands of keys or items you have to collect.

I honestly can’t remember how I got this game. It’s a pretty disappointing VN that was supposed to be the prelude of a 4 chapter VN series which ended up not happening.

Another Challenge Me game picked by ninglor03 and a Steam Gifts win. I didn’t really like this game back when I first played it because I was trying to get every single collectible. This time around I didn’t focus on getting them and I ended up really liking it!

It took some time getting used to the controls but after finishing a few levels I got used to them. The game was not all too difficult, I only had trouble with the last 2 levels which were pretty challenging.

This is was the first game I’ve ever won on Steam Gifts and I finally got around to playing it. I did not enjoy it at all. It’s pretty short but Act II just dragged on and on.

Some of the solutions to puzzles didn’t make any goddamn sense so the in-game walkthrough was a godsend. A lot of times it was some specific dialogue option hidden beneath a branching dialog tree that progressed the story. The translation was also not the greatest.

I’m just glad I never have to play this game again and that it is removed from my backlog.

Been meaning to buy this for the longest time and I finally pulled the trigger this Steam Sale. Great FPS and Star Wars game!

All of the Delta Squad members were great and I especially loved the back and forth banter between Sev and Scorch. My only complaints were that the enemies did tend to feel a little bullet-spongey and some weapons lacked impact.

A game that has been sitting in my Steam Library for a while and thanks to the Challenge Me picks by ninglor03, I finally found the motivation to play it. I absolutely loved it even though I got ending 4 which is probably one of the worst outcomes in the game. Definitely replaying this in the near future!

I didn’t enjoy this at all because of the clunky controls and the bullshit last level with all the stage hazards. Can’t wait to finish the rest of the games…

I thought this was way more forgiving than the first game up until the final level. Way too many enemies that can turn you lifebar from full to 3 bars in a matter of seconds.

Only game left is Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone, where I’m currently on the last level.

Got this for free because I own Evoland 2. The idea of a game letting you play through different generations of RPGs sounded pretty cool at first but it ended up feeling a little bit flat. Heard the sequel was a lot better in that regard, so I might jump into that one later this month.

Bought this and a couple of other games on Fanatical earlier this month. I had a pretty great time with this. Difficulty was all over the place in some levels, especially the ones where you are poisoned and have to fight a ton of enemies.

I didn’t like this game at first because of the horrible M/KB controls but I ended up really liking it when I switched to my controller. There was one frustrating bit where you have to pull down a Star Destroyer but other than that I had a blast!
