Monthly Update #3: July


This month I was off sick for a week and a half so I've had a lot more time to game than I normally do. Yay to backlog progress! I got through a lot of my SG Wins this month too :) (Then won some more..shh)
Here is my attempt at playing around with Tabs.. Haven't used HTML in years, so there was an attempt.
Plus, screenshots. Because why not ;)

Similar to lines, however nearly every spot is set and is less flexible. Could be slightly frustrating, as there is no undo button. Every mistake you then had to redo the level.
Has cool bright pink achievement letters though? :P

I really enjoyed this game. I got it in a bundle and wasn't expecting much from it, but it was great!. I only played the single player but it also has a local co-op option. Game based on an Inuit Legend, collectable insights (videos) throughout the game discussing Inuit culture. Was fascinating.
Pros:
Character design was great, and even with no talking I really felt for the characters every time I managed to kill them :( The fox was adorable. The enemies also felt threatening which was good. The game automatically saves, but saved at each point you passed an obstacle which was great.

Cons:
Had issues with some sections using mouse/keyboard. Recommend controller or at least changing one of the action keys for the fox. Playing single player, you rely a little bit on the other character getting places without your help. Frequently one of them managed to jump to their death/get squashed/eaten etc etc.

Overall I recommend it!

….Ok worst game. This took a few minutes to complete and you just kind of ran into a wall. Thought it was a bug but looking at the discussion forum, no… that's the end of the game lol.
So the rest of the time after 10 minutes, is me idling for cards…. :/
No one ever buy this haha

This was really fun. Definitely not the kind of game I would've originally bought for myself and thought I'd like, but 35 hours later…
I was attempting to 100% it, however I have to replay most of the story in normal mode to get some timed achievements. I managed to get the hard mode play through with no characters dying done though!
Story wise, I liked it, although I felt the decisions made by the characters were stupid, but in the context believable.
Music was also good.
Definitely recommend it.

This game is just Flappy Bird. Only so much I can take before this has been set to Beaten (aka dropped for this one). Nothing really to distinguish it other than it's been removed from Steam.

Steam Gift Wins

I also have a few games from Bundles I haven't completely decided what to do with yet - whether that is keep/gift to a friend/giveaways. We will see! :) I originally won The Last Remnant on SG but the key was a duplicate, so the person made a private giveaway with a game of my choice from a list. Which is how I now own Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth! Didn't even know about the game beforehand, looks pretty good.

Monthly Update for June

Here are the games I mostly played this month.
For the monthly theme, I completed Forager and Old Man’s Journey, and did the new Fishing achievements in Tower Unite!
I ended up getting a LOT of games this month…
I’ve also been working on the first steamgift I got last month, Moon Hunters. A friend and I have been trying to 100% it, which still has a bit to go.
I had big plans to complete a few of my shorter games, but once I got My Time at Portia as a freebie I’ve spent a LOT of time playing that.

Played: (Excluded a few smaller playtime games)

Let's add to the baaacklog aaaagaiiinnn

FREEBIES!!

Mostly from steam, although I got My Time at Portia through Green Man Gaming's monthly Wheel of Mystery :D (Essentially you get a point for posting to their forums, once you have 100 points you can spin the wheel they have up randomly once a month. Usually 5 games that are all pretty good! Recommend it if you have time to post every now and then!)

Safe to say, I think I'm set for a fair while ! Slightly different from my Hidden Object binge last month.

May Update

Yeah May isn’t completely over, but hey, most the gaming I’ll get done this month is. So here we are. My first update.
So I have actually done more than I thought this month. I’m generally pretty slack on playing, much less beating or completing any games, so this amount is a success. Terraria I mostly completed last month, but seeing as I completed it this month…it counts! ;)

Terraria. Human Fall Flat, Don’t Starve Together and Magicka I have been playing with two other people, so it kind of relies on times we are all free! (and when we decide to not play Overwatch..)

I managed to get Enigmatis 2 and Hard Reset Redux for free recently, from a HOG group and Reddit, so want to complete the HOG and play a bit more of Hard Reset. I also got Hidden Folks from a trade with a friend, but think I’ll complete that pretty quickly!
