Backlog Assassination : Mars 2022

Yes, March, I fell sick in February and it didn’t get better until around soon, when the treatment I’m taking will finally kick in and I can finally get better. For this reason, I didn’t make a February post, but who cares since it’s March and I played a whole lot of games when lying down in my bed in between two naps as my body found it was the best way to recover.

ANYWAY !

It’s March and I’ll make an official list of games I’ll play this month, I do have a non official one for February, which of course I didn’t follow, but the most important is that when I was awake and playing, I was having fun. Remember what I said last time, if playing a game becomes a duty, you have to remind yourself that you should play for fun.

Best Of This Month

  • Rose of Winter : I don’t know how you cannot fall for Rosemary, she’s the most amazing non official knight there exist and she understood that it wasn’t about obeying to royals, but being kind, caring and protecting those in need. Beside she’s absolutely gorgeous, I like a beautiful curvy lady wearing an accurate armor and a big sword she’s able to easily swing.
    Now onto the love interests. They are cute, but nobody beat Crows, even if you replay his route five times, he’s still the perfect unperfect man for this perfect unperfect knight. I also like Tirune, but if I say that, I’m now forced to want a second opus to know what happens after the happy ending (I don’t think kids and praises of a kingdom works in that specific case).

That’s it for February, replayed games, usual games and some new VN made their way into my library so I’ll stray to read some of those as it’s my favorite genre (those damn Kickstarters I can’t resist to ! If you’re playing VN and you notice “Nightmaze” as a backer, it’s me, I’m Nightmaze and I apparently backed 120 projects. I had no idea until the other day when I got curious and decided to check).

I won’t explain why I use / have 36 pseudonyms, that’s for another time if you’re ever curious about it. Instead I’ll be wishing for this month to stop being a complete mess and for things to get better. There are times during which we feel powerless and it’s one of those for me, so allow me to share > Artifex Mundi < statement while I’m considering buying > Irony Curtain < for myself and some friends.

Backlog Assassination : Welcome to 2022

Hi everybody, it’s been a while isn’t it ? My last post was in September and it’s not that I didn’t want to challenge myself as I continued to do so and have my own list ready for this month, but the universe had decided that the end of 2021 would be a complicated one : My computer died, the preparation of my wedding turned into a disaster (the post office gave my wedding rings to someone else, the restaurant forgot our reservation, etc. This was a logistic nightmare), so I simply didn’t have the time to sit down and make a long post regarding what I was playing and I wasn’t playing much anyway as trying to solve the shit the universe was kind enough to send me.

ANYWAY !

Today is my first month being married to my partner and I only begin now to solve those issues left from before the wedding (they still didn’t pay back for our wedding rings) and those in between (I love it when suddenly the public service which is helping me to survive as an handicapped woman decides to cause issues by withdrawing 350€ from our landlord for no reason at all and ask me to give them 150€ as bonus because why not). BUT I also can finally begin to plan what I’m going to play this year. Yeah I’m speaking of year because there are some games in my list that I’ll never play or finish if I don’t give them priority.

Planned NON Assassination

This year I decided to make a big cleanse of my large library and decide which game I simply won’t play at all. It would be complicated to explain what went through my head when it comes to my wish to own some of them, but I simply don’t have the time to play bad games for the sake of finishing my backlog, so that pesky “won’t play” red mark will become larger by the end of this month and probably the next.
Those won’t play will still be in my library but won’t be there to stress me unless someone plead in their favor (I can be wrong and judging a game trash while it’s pretty cool).


I wanted to post this here as a reminder to myself and to everybody who will read that a game is supposed to be entertaining and not a duty, even less a chore. If you feel that way when it comes to launch a game, you should re evaluate what pushes you to play it in the first place.

I’ll resume my usual posts in February, for now I’m too busy celebrating my one month anniversary of marriage (is that something you do ? I decided that yeah) and reminding me to not rush myself. I have time and I should use it as I see fit.

Backlog Assassination : September 2021

September has been a really bad month for me, so bad that I opened a Go Fund Me to be able to cope with the financial issues that occurred (including my computer breaking down) and I have yet to recover physically to another issues.
The rest of the problems are slowly being taken care of or out of my control, but all of this delayed entirely what I wanted to do during September, thus I never made a post in August to state my progress nor I did plan what I would play beside what I added on PGWS.

ANYWAY !

Anyway, let’s hope that October will be nicer to me, I decided to report a part of what I wanted to do during September to October and hopefully some of the current issues will be solved by the end of the month.

Best Of This Month

  • Our Life : Beginnings & always : Another month and another game I backed on Kickstarter. This game is actually free and the DLC adds bonus scenes that aren’t necessary but give more depth to the story. I waited until July because the 4th Step was to be released during the summer, I didn’t expect to reach that point with more than one playthrough this fast.
    I did play the 40 hours, the game is really long and there are so many choices that allow the game to be fully personalized that I’m not sure I saw even half of the possibilities. It’s also impossible to not like Cove, he’s just too much ♥ .
    Yes, it’s a copy/paste but the last DLC was released and of course, everything here is still valid. Go get in love with Cove, it’s free ♥ !

I entirely changed my ABC challenge after realizing that I was very uncomfortable with the one I set up when I had less knowledge of what I like to play. If you find yourself in the same situation, go ahead and change what you dislike, games exist to entertain you and not being a burden.

Let’s hope that October will leave me with time and less stress. I’m not done preparing our wedding, I didn’t even send the invitation while it’s in 2 months, pfff.

Planned Backlog Assassination : August 2021

Thanks to the groups Playing Appreciated, Play or Pay and Play a Game you won on Steamgifts, I’m challenging myself to finish some games each month, but I needed a little push for my personal backlog, thus why I chose to join BLAEO !

Backlog Assassination : July 2021

It’s super hot here, my dream is to buy a balcony pool and flop in all day. We had 40°C yesterday (104 °F), I spend most of my time hiding in the bedroom where it’s cooler, so the games I played reflect that as I was playing via Steamlink on my phone.

ANYWAY !

I’m not late, it’s August which melted July too early.

I just realized that I posted the previous update July 13th, I guess it’s becoming an habit. Summer is always really hard for me as I suffer from migraine every time it’s too hot, so it’s hard for me to munster the energy to write, would it be here or for anything else really.

On a side note, I received my wedding shoes, I need to walk in them to not suffer in December ♥ !

Hope you are all enjoying summer and the heat isn’t killing you !

  • Perfect Gold : I mean, are you surprised ? I backed this game on Kickstarter and got to see it going from basic pictures to a really cute story. I encourage you to give it a try, it’s heartwarming and will make you smile ♥

I know there is only 2 weeks left before the end of the month, but it won’t stop me from wishing you to have a great weather, including a soft breeze and cool water. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen and wear a hat every time you go out of your home !

Backlog Assassination : May 2021

Half of the year is already gone, it’s super hot here so my fan is back under my desk, we’re currently preparing mosquito screens to let the windows open and placed a net on our super large balcony to allow our cats to roam outside without risking to fall. To be honest, being on the third floor and able to open windows on both side allows us to cool down the apartment pretty quickly even when we’re playing games and thus having both our computers becoming pieces of lava.

ANYWAY

It’s PRIDE MONTH !
Don’t mind me, I’m always excited about Pride as it’s the best moment for me to educate people and may do a special set of giveaways if I find appropriate games ♥ .

  • Purrfect Apawcalypse: Love at Furst Bite : This VN is making gore adorable and while the story seems to be short, there are a lot of endings, some of them allowing you to discover more about the characters. The price is really low and is the first of a trilogy now released on Steam (and available on itch.io as well).

I wish you a happy Pride Month and take the opportunity to encourage you to watch ContraPoints videos as she is a beautiful woman who speaks a lot about trans identity and other interesting topic.

Don’t forget to be kind towards yourself and if you feel “different”, don’t consider it as being something negative, do some researches and you’ll probably find out that there are more people like you than you think ♥ .
