May Review

Steam reviews are up for almost all of these games.

  • Plague Inc: Evolved

    35 hours playtime

    121 of 199 achievements

  • Portal 2

    15 hours playtime

    27 of 51 achievements

  • Democracy 3

  • Dead Island

    6 hours playtime

    3 of 48 achievements

  • Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack

    9 hours playtime

    10 of 14 achievements

Unfortunately I cannot write a Steam review for Dead Island. I do not have the definitive version because I got this for free or in a cheap bundle. As much as I do not want to add another game to the “won’t play” list, this strongly qualifies for it.

It is like the developers wanted to make Dying Light, but did not have the budget or support so they just made it with everything worse. I suppose I should be thankful they got a second chance and did a much better job when they actually made Dying Light.

Maybe I would have spent some more time with it had I not already finished Dying Light, but the time I spent was unenjoyable and that’s not how I want to spend my time.

I also got a chance to test out Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD which is a nice little point and click. Steam is still learning about it so it will take some time before it shows up here.

I do not have much to write that my reviews have not already covered. The Caribbean Sail had another nice update which added a few achievements as well. I played through the game again for the fun of it, and grabbed screenshots which I had not before. The fantasy update should be coming soon which is expected to be one of the final and larger updates. I am sure I will be playing more of this game in the future too.

March Review

Steam reviews are up for all of these games (even though I am not done with Shadow of Mordor yet).

  • Kingdoms and Castles

    17 hours playtime

    12 of 12 achievements

  • Valley

    16 hours playtime

    30 of 30 achievements

  • Sid Meier's Civilization V

    9 hours playtime

    20 of 286 achievements

  • Sid Meier's Civilization VI

    26 hours playtime

    35 of 241 achievements

  • Runic Rampage

    12 hours playtime

    31 of 31 achievements

  • Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™

    18 hours playtime

    17 of 74 achievements

I completed Runic Rampage and as the developer promised after 90 reviews (I was #90) they would add more achievements to the game. I just completed it a second time.
I may play a bit more Civ and I could see myself playing a lot more if I did not own more than 500 games.
I finally have the disk space available to install Shadow of Mordor so I have started that. Combat is complicated but I am started to get used to it.

In the end, a good month because I finished more games than I added - which has less to do with the progress I made this month and more to do with the fact that I only added 1 game.
