Mid August update!
(how is it august already….)
I didn’t get much progress this month so far because I’ve been playing longer games.
I enjoyed this game and I was having fun with it but unfortunately it had a lot of bugs. I spent some time looking at a guide before I realized that I wasn’t playing wrong, the game was making errors on my behalf. I finally had to stop playing right before the last chapter because I ran into a game breaking bug. Restarting the previous nights didnt work and I was not able to continue playing. I obviously can’t recommend it, but it was a lot of fun for not the wasted 13 hours. I added the sequel to my wishlist in hopes that i have better luck with it.
I’m not a fan of rogue-like games for two reasons. One, I don’t like repetition in games. Two, I’m really awful at them. Just terrible. I knew I’d either hate this game or get crazy addicted. Luckily it was the latter! Hades is so much fun. The story, voice acting, amount of details (there’s so much detail!). it had so much put into it. It has a God Mode feature that makes it easier to beat and I am very thankful for that. I’d never finish the game without it. I will give a full review of the game when I’m done but I’m glad I jumped on the Hades hype train. With how long this game is, this will probably be my focus for the rest of the month. Also (small spoiler) I just beat Hades for the second time. When I started I thought I’d never get past the first boss and it was a fantastic sense of accomplishment to beat Hades himself. Which was NOT in easy fight, even on God Mode. That took me many many many many tries.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the month!
End of July Update!
Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great month. I only got a couple games done but progress is progress!
Mid July Update!
Playing Right Now:
I’m taking a vacation off of work on the 31st which will give me proper time to beat Control. I want to properly explore the envinroment and play all of the DLC’s. I’m playing My Friend Pedro right now which is tons of fun. Next is Kentucky Route Zero, which I did beat a long time ago before they released the last chapter and added achievements. Now I have to replay the whole game since I don’t remember it very well. I enjoyed it the first time though so I’m happy to play it again. Happy gaming everyone and I hope you all have a great month.
End of June Update!
I’ve been on a mission to really complete my Challenge Me and POP challenges! So far I beat three POP picks from last cycle (Batman, LIS, Steamworld Dig) and one Challenge Me from this cycle (GOTG). I still have plenty of games from this Challenge Me and POP cyle to beat and I’m going to keep going strong!
These are the rest of the games from POP and Challenge Me and the ONLY games I’m going to play this month! I’m very excited and I’ll hopefully be back for a mid July update!
Mid June Update!
Hey guys! I asked everyone on SG which games I should play and you all gave some great recommendations! I knocked out some super short games so that I could focus on these longer ones. So the rest of the month is dedicated to Life is Strange, Control, Arkham Asylum, and maybe some Challenge Me games as well!
End of May Update!
Hey guys! February is the shortest month and my birthday month, so I tried celebrating by completing as many games as I could. It’s not much (since most of the games were 30 minutes) but it was fun to knock out a bunch of games like the good ol days before I had a job and adult responsibilities :)
These next games I completed were all from the developers of Randumb Studios. I bought “The Test.” because it had good reviews. Then I decided to get all of their games because it was only fifteen dollars for every game. I didn’t realize that they were all the same game really, but It was still fun to beat all of them in two days. I’m just going to give an overall review here and then a short sentence for each game. All of these games are basically personality quizzes. You answer yes/no and situational questions and they give you a little scenario at the end that best fits your answers. Kind of like those pointless but fun buzzfeed quizzes (you know what I’m talking about!).
“The Test” series is probably their biggest. The rest are very low effort. I’m not trying to be mean because I myself cannot make a game and I know they have low price tags. Its just that they copy the same game each time and paste a different scenario. Most of the games share a lot of the same questions and every game has the same humor. Personally, I feel like the humor doesn’t always land. A lot of sexual jokes or edgy jokes that don’t have enough of a punchline to land. When you complete a game you get a secret word that you can put in your review or comments. The devs say that they incorporate the word and your name in future games, so that’s a neat interaction with the audience. Overall, each game is the same. You answer questions. Now that you are aware of that, let me go into each game.
The Test: Hypothesis Rising
The Horrorscope: Fatal Awakening
The Test: Final Revelation
Gobby McGobblenutz Presents: The Art of the Dad Joke: Chapter 1
The Advisor - Episode 1: Royal Pain
Medieval Fantasy Survival Simulator
The Journey - Episode 1: Whatever This Is
The Questionably Quirky Quiz Show - Episode 1
Survive or Thrive
WTF is wrong with you?
The Test: The first game I played and definetely the strongest. The Test asks you “yes or no” questions about yourself and gives you a deep analysis of yourself at the end. Its simplistic like the rest, but it has some nice details. The ambiance is unnerving and it balances creepy and heartfelt pretty well. Secret Word: Fantasy
The Test: Hypothesis Rising: This is a sequel to The Test and it’s pretty much the same. They added situational questions to make it a little more interesting, but its no longer mysterious so it loses some intrigue. Secret Word: Talented
The Test: Final Revelations: Same as the other two but with some more interesting questions. They have “yes or no” questions, situational questions, and pictures in which you have to describe how they make you feel. The ending has a nice message and this is an overall nice trilogy, worth the 6 dollars. Secret Word: Greed
The Confession: I guess the fans dared them to make a game with only sexual questions, so they did. At first I thought it would be a mix of different dark secrets like, did you commit a crime or something like that. But no, its all sexual questions, and the middle schooler humor is strong in this one. I didn’t gain or lose much with this game, but I would not recommend it. Secret Word: Condom
The Horrorscope: This is just like The Test but with less effort. I would just get “The Test” instead. Secret Word: Cursed
The Horrorscope: Fatal Awakening. For only 10 percent of your life, this game promises to tell you how you’re going to die and how to avoid it. This is much like their other games with many shared questions like the others. It did get creepy though since my death prediction is a big fear of mine. It also told me not to go outside around a time that I had to go outside to walk to work O.O but spooks aside, these games are almost all the same and I’d still recommend The Test over this. Secret Word: Dirt
Gobby McGobblenutz Presents: The Art of the Dad Joke: A goblin tells you puns and dad jokes and you click yes or no if it made you laugh. The puns are nice but it went on for very long and I was speed running through dad jokes about half way through. I dont even remember my secret word.
The Advisor episode one: This one was a little bit different. It’s like a visual novel where you play a magician who has to answer questions to become the advisor for the king. Depending on your answers, it will determine the fate of the kingdom. Each time you answer a question your character has a line of dialogue, which adds some life to the game. The game ends on a cliffhanger and the players get to decide how they want the story to proceed. The only gameplay is answering questions like the other games, but its got some charm.
Medieval Fantasy Survival: You are in medieval times and you are asked questions to determine if you would survive the times. I had a 85.7 percent chance of survival and my Secret Word was Morale.
Survivor Dieland: You are in a made up place called Dieland and you are asked questions to determine if you would survive in Dieland. I forgot my Secret Word :/
The Journey ep 1: Whatever this is: This game was made for people who are suffering from depression or are just stuck in life and want to find new hobbies to help them break free of the rut they are in. It has a more serious tone then the others. It didn’t provide much for me but it may be helpful to others. Secret Word: Meditate
Naked News: There is no answering questions in this one. It’s a kinetic novel that takes place at a news station. It aims for offensive humor, but it just doesn’t land well.
The Questionably Quirky Quiz Show: Gobby McGobblenutz is back. This time he’s hosting a quiz show. He will ask you would you rather style questions and you have to answer truthfully. Such as “eat chicken or eat steak.” Then he will tell you if its a common answer that people answered or uncommon. The more uncommon answers, the more points you get. It’s actually kind of fun and I enjoyed playing it. My score was 431 and my Secret Word: is Beautiful.
Survive or Thrive: Another questionnare that tells you how well you’d survive in the wild. At the end it will give you a situation in which it thinks you would survive/escape in. Secret Word: Asylum.
WTF is wrong with you? A game that asks, would you do this dirty or offensive thing for a million dollars? You have to decide if you would do each scenario for a million dollars. Its a lot of gross out humor and I realized I dont need a million dollars that badly. Secret Word: Strange.
I did not play The Twins or the Summoning because both require you to have certain items and perform ritual stuff and I’m way to lazy to grab all of that. But that concludes the rest of the games. Thank you all for reading this giant giant post of mine!
I’m looking forward to playing these games next!
It’s been a while since I’ve done an update, but I’ve beaten a couple games now. I recieved an Oculus Quest 2 as an early birthday present so I’ve been trying to figure that out. Unfortunately It’s been making me motion sick but I’m hoping I get over it because I have a lot of new games I want to try!
End of November Update
Gaming was slow this month. Without burdening you all with personal details, I’ll just make it known that I lost a close friend last week. He was the person that I played most of my games with and gaming has not been the same this week. Instead of focusing on games that I played, I want to focus on games that I will be playing soon. Including one of his favorite games (Zero Escape, which I was playing beforehand, so I will proudly continue and beat.) That way I can keep a positive attitude.
The zero escape series is next on my list of games to beat. Then Life is Strange True Colors (or maybe in between since Zero Escape is technically two games.) I’ve heard good things about True Colors and I’m hoping it’s closer to Life is Strange one then two. Meanwhile I’m still working on Borderlands 3 and We Were Here Together. I’ve heard very negative things about Borderlands 3, but I’m really enjoying it so far. I have very low expectations so that’s helped a lot. Other then that, there is one game that I beat this month below. I hope everyone has an amazing December. Happy Holidays!
