Wintermute’s profile


Dear fellow assassins,
reporting once more about my “jobs” during April 2018.

As for future reference, my backlog demands a new strategy, since I have so many games I want to at least try.
So, I will juggle even more than usual among my targets and just stick to the “unmissable” missions I want to complete.

Highlight of the month is Slay the Spire, I absolutely love it!

Here is my final report: (games I’ve won on SG are in red):


Confirmed kills (games I have beaten with at least one playthrough):

  • Conarium: beaten [Time: ~5 Hours; Achievements: 13/26 (50%)]
  • Into the Breach: beaten [Time: ~18 Hours; Achievements: 13/55 (24%)]

  • Ash of Gods: Redemption: beaten [Time: ~19 Hours; Achievements: 18/50 (36%)]
    (note: I have noticed a very strange thing indeed: I got the “Bronze man” achievement (Reach Chapter 7 in hardcore mode), but it looks like “Tin man” achievement (Reach Chapter 4 in hardcore mode) has not unlocked!)

  • Shadow Warrior 2
  • Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Dear fellow assassins,
December has come and has passed.
Another month full of work, with very little time to play.

The biggie I started last month is still in play (Tyranny), though in the meanwhile I managed to scrap enough play time to kill a few targets.
Among them, I am proud I have played to the end one of the few Infinity engine games I was still missing: Planescape Torment.
This also means now I am ready to try and kill one of my previous winnings: Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Also, thanks to Xmas gifts coming and going, I secured Fallout 4 Season Pass, so… well, for me it’s a huge target indeed!

Anyway, with no further ado, here is my small report (and, as always, games I have won on SteamGifts are colored in red):


Confirmed kills (games I have beaten with at least one playthrough):

  • Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition: completed [Time: ~33 Hours; Achievements: 23/50 (46%)]
  • A Normal Lost Phone: completed [Time: ~2 Hours; Achievements: 13/13 (100%)]
  • AER Memories of Old: completed [Time: ~8 Hours; Achievements: 11/20 (55%)]
  • Settled: beaten [Time: ~1 Hours; Achievements: N/A]
  • 1979 Revolution: Black Friday: beaten [Time: ~2 Hours; Achievements: 26/39 (67%)]

Final goal: 35%

Yes, objective has been pushed away by a lot of winnings I had in December, especially thanks to the SimGive event :-/

Dear fellow assassins,
November has been a rather heavy job month for me (lot of work & traveling), so I couldn’t attempt a lot of killings, though I have started one of my “biggies” in my backlog: Tyranny.
Anyway, I am pretty satisfied with my results.

Dear fellow assassins,
here is another monthly update, third one in (I hope!) a long series.
I keep following my own agenda (with average to good results).
I know I am not commenting a lot my fellows’ results, I will try do to better as regards this specific aspect as well.
This has been a hard month of work and little play, though I managed to place a nice shot with Prey.
I was absolutely delighted by this game and I strongly recommend it.

Dear fellow assassins,
here is my new monthly update, second one since I am here.
Again, even for this month I am not participating to BLAEO events, sort of experiment to see if my force of will and dedication are strong enough.

Well, here is my September report (as always, games I won on SG are in red):

Dear fellow assassins,
I will try to post a monthly update with the results of my efforts to kill my backlog.
(I know I will be ashamed: a lot of you have cute, wonderful posts, full of color and images, while my posts will be barren, essential and uninviting).

Anyway, first objective here on BLAEO: “finishing” 35% of my SG wins.

My base technique, which I almost always don’t stray from, is juggling between some games, while focusing on 1 or 2 biggies.
Also, as a rule of thumb, I do not play multiplayer games at all. Made some mistakes trying to win these games on SG (though in many cases it’s because I thought they had single player modes, which actually proved wrong).
Besides, I know achievements are a tool to evaluate our kills, but to me they are not so important, I am not a completionist. My goal is to enjoy my games, not living them as chores.
Finally, at a later time I plan to remove permanently some games from my Steam library (not SG wins of course) in order to keep it tidy&clean from now on.

For these BLAEO updates I will keep reports of my assassination attempts with confirmed kills and whatnot.

So, let’s see how things went this month (games I won on SG are in red):


Confirmed kills (games I have beaten with at least one playthrough or games I have played enough in August 2017):

  • Fairy Fencer F: beaten [Time: ~37 Hours; Achievements: 13/29 (45%)]
  • Resident Evil 7: beaten [Time: ~21 Hours; Achievements: 25/50 (50%)]
  • Warhammer 40,000: Regicide: beaten [Time: ~20 Hours; Achievements: 10/35 (29%)]
  • Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul: beaten [Time: ~15 Hours; Achievements: 16/50 (32%)]
  • Mainlining: beaten [Time: ~6 Hours; Achievements: N/A]
  • Virginia: beaten [Time: ~4 Hours; Achievements: 11/17 (65%)]
  • Nekopara vol.1: completed [Time: ~4 Hours; Achievements: 14/14 (100%)]
  • Nekopara vol.2: completed [Time: ~2 Hours; Achievements: 20/20 (100%)]
  • Masochisia: beaten [Time: ~2 Hours; Achievements: N/A]
  • Rise: Battle Lines: beaten [Time: ~1 Hours; Achievements: 12/24 (50%)]

Assassination attempts (games I have started playing in August 2017 or will be playing soon)

  • Submerged
  • Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf
  • Umihara Kawase Shun Steam Edition
  • Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter
  • Dead Age
  • 1931: Scheherazade at the Library of Pergamum

Aborted missions (games I could not play or stopped and won’t be playing):

  • Shadow Complex Remastered
    Hell, I have tried each and every forum advices on web, but I could not launch it. And that’s a pity, since it’s a games I really wanted to play!
  • Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade
    Well, this is my fault. I was sure there was some kind of single player mode. Haven’t found one, I should have given a better check.
  • Mahjong Pretty Girls Battle: School Girls Edition
    My mistake, again: really thought the Mahjong game was a solitaire one and not a classic Mahjong match with other (real or CPU) players.
    I am sorry but I have not the time to learn playing Mahjong.

Objective advancement (beaten + completed games): 18% (42 out of 234 games)
(even if there’s a thing I don’t understand: my SG account says I have won 222 games, while here on BLAEO it says I have won 234 games on SG)

Well, I have recently joined Playing Appreciated in order to give myself a better incentive in playing my games.
But I thought signing up here would help me to find more and more stimuli in eroding my backlog.
