Little early because I probably won’t beat anything in the last few days. The Division 2 ate up a lot of my time :P

Pretty nice physics platformer, held up pretty well for a 16-year old game. There were some really frustrating levels though and the achievements are super broken so I haven’t gotten any.

For someone that doesn’t play a lot of puzzle games, this was quite an easy one to get into. I only had to look up the solution to a few puzzles. My only complaint was that you had to backtrack a lot to previous areas, which was not clear a few times.

I quite liked this free Visual novel. The premise is to send out a pair of heroes on missions to build up their relationship to save the world. It’s has some great and funny writing and is very inclusive, I highly recommend it!

God this game was a lot of fun, if frustrating at times (looking at you remote bomb vest guys). I used the Assaulter and Breacher a lot because I felt that the other classes were a little bit weak and useless.

I fell asleep twice while I still had this game running… not a great but not a bad HOG either. I do prefer the first two games from this series though.

This game oozed with style. It’s kind of a mix between a hack and slash and an adventure game. Loved the characters, the humour and most of all the banging tunes of the soundtrack. Definitely looking forward to see more from this series :)

I was excited when I first saw that The Master Chief Collection was headed to PC, as I’ve always wanted to play the series. It was well worth the wait! Definitely looking forward to play the rest of them in 2020 (hopefully).

Played through this in ScummVM to get the voice acting of the Special Edition in the original game (I thought the remastered graphics looked absolutely disgusting). A classic Point ‘n Click Adventure game that I hadn’t played before. The characters were all very charming and it was a really funny game! Had me laughing out loud a bunch of times.

A great 2D shooter with bullet time and some really neat mechanics. Kicking a pan into the air and shooting at it, resulting in them ricocheting into enemies was one of my coolest gaming moments of 2019.

A great beat-em-up where the focus is on parrying and dodging attacks. I sucked at the beginning but when I got into the rhythm I got really into it. Seeing those Gold medals pop up was immensely satisfying.

I’ll definitely go back to this game next year to give the New Dawn mode a try.

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.

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!
