New month, new updates !

Half-Life 2

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter

11.0 hours
25 of 25 achievements

Impressive game (also my first from the Sherlock Holmes series) - maybe I am a little biased. Impressive graphics, pleasant gameplay, puzzles ok, not too absurd, I liked the fast travel implementation and the Sherlock abilities that helped a lot.

Half-Life 2

Crazy Machines 3

22.6 hours
33 of 41 achievements

A lot of puzzles, funny situations, very enjoyable and puts your mind to contribution. I didn't understand / used too much the workshop part, even the achievements were somehow obscure to get. The minigames shouldn't be part of this awesome game. They were just too childish and the controls were unnatural.

Also, I was a lucky bastard. I don’t know what happened, karma or something else, but my backlog is fighting back ! I won a lot of games and of course, I intend to play them all.

Still Life

N/A achievements

As a big point&click fan, I enjoyed it, but it was a bit creepy at some point, investigating murders in 1930 and some copy-cat killings in present. Visual was nice, but the game mechanics (inventory, movement) not so friendly. Some puzzles were interesting, but others not very intuitive and rather hard and tiring. In general I enjoyed it and I hope I will play the sequel at some point.

This reminded me of childhood arcade games. I finished it pretty quick but I will come back to it, it's a perfect game for a quick co-op arcade game. Nice and enjoyable

Awesome game, very similar to newer Wolfenstein games. I did had a great time playing it and I will continue with multiplayer as it seems pretty intense and fun (multiplayer very similar to Quake Champions).
Too bad this game doesn't have a Co-op mode.

Hey guys.
I’m not new in this site but I just found out how to write a post :) sorry about that, I somehow missed the Activities part, I was just looking into the statuses of my games.
I want to present myself first, I’m a 31 old dad of a 3 months kid and I realize that my backlog will just be harder and harder to fight.
I want to brag that in December I finished Overgrowth, a steamgifts win and I also wrote a review about it. A very unexpected game, with an angry rabbit, that fights other rabbits, cats, dogs, wolves (with paws or with swords, because why not). This game really had nice graphics but the story and the gameplay itself was a bit dull (there is a basic killing combo that you must spam to kill your opponents).
The other game I just finished was Mothergunship, that has a nice idea: mount a massive number of weapons after you connect them and fight tons and tons of mechanical alien technology. This game was really challenging (no different difficulty modes) and is a bit frustrating (you lose your selected weapons if you die in a level). I managed to finish it however and I felt really relieved. I also tried it with a friend (it has co-op mode) and it can become more fun.
I also won another game: Styx: Shards of Darkness - Lucky me !

Sorry about the plain text, I promise my future post will short and will have some markdown syntax to be easier to read.

Shortly:
