February 2023

Now, you might be asking “Damian, what happened to January?????”. Well….. i beat barely anything in December and was hoping to make a mid-January post when i had some actual content, but i didn’t end up doing much in January either… :( 99% of my gaming time has gone solely to Kingdom Come: Deliverance (which is a banger btw, but it’s an open-world RPG so it takes a fuck ton of time), so haven’t really had the time of will to play anything else.
So to not skip February too, here’s a smol post:

I always love the kinds of games where you just try and achieve different endings (e.g. The Stanley Parable or Henry Stickmin games), and this one is no different. Just an absolute banger all-around, with a lot of charm, intrigue and interesting social commentary. Definetly worth a play :)

An interesting story, with nice art, and some basic puzzles serving as filler between the dialogue scenes. I enjoyed it, but you’re not missing out on much :)

December 2023

Oopsie, i was going to make this post a few days ago…. and then i forgot. But better late then never eh? Didn’t really do much in November, so not much to write about, but the few things i did beat i quite enjoyed. So that’s that :)
Now, onto the games:

An absolute flash classic, that was expanded and improved upon making it into this. An amazingly enjoyable experience with great art, a banging soundtrack and extremely fun gameplay. Just wow, what a great experience. Play it right now!!!

Gorogoa

Gorogoa falls perfectly into my favourite type of puzzle game, one where the puzzles aren’t hard enough to make you pull out a guide, but aren’t easy enough for you to breeze through them. The perfect middle ground where after each puzzle you can go “Ah!”, and feel accomplished. The beautiful art and great soundtrack is just the cherry on top. The only drawback is, it’s short, really short, and for that price… eh…. i would wait for a sale, however this is definetly a gem worth playing :)

It's just more WD2, what's there to say? A few more fun missions in a great game are always appreciated :)

Puzzle Agent is quite a short, and mildly enjoyable story game. The puzzles are quite nice, and the story… well it starts a bit slow, and then speedruns all the way to the finish with a cliffhanger, not really that great. The VA and art are nice, and that’s about it. Quite a forgettable experience overall, and probably one i’ll forget i even played in a few months. Worth a buy? For the price, sure, if you’re just looking to kill a few hours with an ok game, don’t go in looking for anything groundbreaking, or even great though.

Torchlight

Torchlight is… fine i guess. If you love grinding in games i’m sure you’ll love this, but going through the same looking stages, killing basically the same enemies, all with the same move in one hit. It’s just so god damn boring. I might come back and finish this some day but i need a break for now.

November 2023

And so, yet another month passes. Soon, we’ll be done with 2023, and i’m willing to bet i’ll still be saying 2023 until February lol. Now as for the month, not much really, played a few short ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) games, and played a few normal games, was on a hot streak, but then i hit I Am Fish and it sucked all the will to play other games out of me with it’s terribleness. Now that a new month is upon us, hopefully i can start anew on some other good games, and well… stop rambling so much in these intros ;P
Now, onto the games:

Honestly, what a great and hilarious game. Rarely do i encounter writing that actually makes me laugh out loud, but this game managed that, and did it quite consistently. Never a dull moment, whether you are going around the streets of Paris interviewing suspects, or sitting in a courtroom trying to defend your client, there’s always something to make you laugh. Truly a top tier game, worth playing :)

Now this... this is great! Compared to the base FH3, this DLC is a blast, surpassing even it's sequel in FH5 in many ways. Lots of jumps, absurd stunts and extremely high speeds make for some superb racing, and it's almost a shame there's not more. Worth every penny!

Forza Horizon 3: Blizzard Mountain

While not quite as good as Hot Wheels, Blizzard Mountain is quite a lot of fun in it's own regard. Racing through the slippery snow, sometimes with barely any visibility alongside cliff edges does make for some enthralling racing, and it seems to pack more events than Hot Wheels on a tighter map too! However at the end of the day, it's just a snowy map, yes, it's fun, but it's not something i envision myself going back to personally.

Not really much to say about this one tbh, a fairly typical porn game, with very nice art, and a mildly interesting story. Worth playing, but not outstanding by any means.

Nice art, and a questionable story, but that's about it. Fairly typical porn game, the world would not be any different with or without it.

Yu Crossing Animals

Yu Crossing Animals is a short yet quite sweet little porn game. It’s free, it’s got VA (which is quite rare) and nice art. However… it does feel quite lacking. The world is heavily underutilised, and there is a really small amount of scenes. It’s a shame really, as the concept shows some promise for a more fully fledged out game, but at the moment it feels more like a rough idea. Still though, it’s free, so worth trying at least.

October 2023

So, i’ve chosen to do my future posts in this style. It’s a bit more of a pain in the ass but it is quite pleasing on the eyes, so that’s something. However i’m axing my currently played section as a result, i just can’t be bothered to mess around and try and fit this style into uncompleted games, so i won’t :) In other news, as you can see, it’s a bit of a slow month, not many games finished. Most of my time went into FH3 or job hunting so less time to play a varied selection. Maybe this will change in October, maybe it will not, we’ll see.
Now, onto the games:

It’s embarrassing that this free game from 10+ years ago clears like half of the paid games on Steam in terms of effort and quality. Good game, play it.

I played FH3 back when it launched, but never finished it. I had a great time with it at the time. But coming back to it.... it's honestly not that great. I think my outlook on Horizon changed after i went back and played FH1, and now FH3 just feels pointless... You can do any race in any car, there is no challenge, no pressure, nothing. Just do what you want with no consequences. And that sucks, why should i even care when i can bring the fastest or slowest car to any race and can still win. There is no point in buying any cars, upgrading etc. I'm really disappointed with this one honestly.

I’m not usually a fan of point and click games, but Inspector Waffles is an exception to the rule. No stupid moon logic puzzles, witty and funny dialogue, great pixel art and most of all a fun story! Definetly worth playing, especially since the game is quite short :)

A short September interlude

So, since yet another person asked me for my thoughts on a game, and since i made it my mission a few years ago to review every game i play on Steam, well… why not combine these two things on BLAEO? So here is a small little update from the last 3 days, trying out a different format. Maybe i will keep it, maybe not, but it’s a nice way to incorporate my Steam reviews which i write anyway. Well anyway, onto the last 3 days! (Oh and excuse the maybe poor reviews, i’m not a great writer haha)

Framed 1 and 2 are both excellent puzzle games that have been wondefully ported over from mobile. There was real passion put into these games, and it shows, with the fun gameplay, great music and a quick momentum, meaning you’re never stuck on a level for more than 5 minutes (except the box factory, fuck that level). Overall though, play this, like right now. It’s only an hour/two in lenght, and it’s a wonderful experience.

Potion Permit is a cute and relaxing little game about hunting, crafting and making relationships. It doesn’t go much deeper than that, but it doesn’t need to, the gameplay loop is satisfying and engaging for the whole game (except the end which drags on a bit) and that makes PP a really fun game to just boot up and get lost in for hours.

Well, last month was a blast. RDR2 was really damn good, so good in fact i barely played anything else that month haha, but i guess that’s just a testament to it’s quality, rarely do i play games that hook me so much that i have to finish them before doing anything else :)

April 2023

Another month, another post. I know probably nobody bothers reading this but i like doing it, and so there shall be a bit of text with every post until i get bored of it :P In other, more interesting news, i finally scrounged up enough money for a new PC! RTX 3070, i5-12400F and 32GB of RAM, quite an upgrade over my previous hardware, which was an Asus X54HR with 2GB of RAM. So now 3D games released after 2010 are finally no longer an issue to run haha, or well… anything, since i can finally run pretty much every game out there. Which also means i can finally get around to a decent chunk of my games that i bought in the past with the hope that i would be able to play them once i finally get some better hardware :D Well well, enough of my blabbering, now onto the games i’ve beaten since my last post:
