DOOM Eternal

I LOVE this new doom games, they are so frenetic and exhilarating, the music makes you wanna keep going on and on and on and on rip and tear all the demons to the core and i can’t believe it but the story and the lore and amazing it is all just so HEAVY METAL so gorey and fun

Yooka-Laylee

COMPLETED!

Okay so I went into this game expecting something bad. It is not a bad game by any means it just isn’t exceptional or does anything new for the genre but if you like banjo-kazooie you will most certainly like this game. It has a fun moveset, nice worlds, memorable characters and music by the one and only Grant Kirkhope

The Wolf Among Us

Perhaps the best telltale game i’ve played, the story is great and really intriguing, the characters are all amazingly well written, the music is great, i’ll probably start reading the graphic novel soon

The Henry Stickmin Collection

COMPLETED!

Really funny and well written, full of pop culture references and lots of secret and again really really funny

Spelunky 2

FINALLY finallyFINALLYasgasg i just beat the game, 526 hours in and i just beat the game for the first ,and most probably only, time its been a hard hard journey, spelunky 1 was the first actual roguelike i played and i hated it but played it for 300+ hours until i won it too, i am now realizing that maybe i really like roguelikes.
I got the most basic ending, i never could manage to do the late level side quests (IE won access to madam tusk place but never reached it when i had the access ) and most probably i will never ever try to go to the cosmic ocean, as i never tried going for hell in the original one, thats all for me, i will ride this joy wave i am surfing the whole night, peace everybody i love you all

Hello

Renowned Explorers: International Society

Pretty fun RPG, really charismatic and well written, it makes you feel like an explorer and it teaches you about different cultures

Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure

So i’ve had this game installed since 2016 and i almost don’t remember anything about it, i started it up and wanted to finish the last two levels from it really rusty from it but i managed to finish it after doing some of the earlier levels again to refresh my memory, it’s a pretty good pretty charming action light rpg game, the music is cute, the characters are cute, the story is really convoluted and really simple at the same time, i like it

Adventures of Robinson Crusoe

Kinda bland hidden object have based on one of my favorite childhood books, the art and the music are nice, its kinda short but i liked the idea that you are completing each level getting materials to build a ship to return to england

Homefront

I liked this one, i have a soft spot for resistance and guerrilla type military games this one is pretty good showing a really cool alternate history where north korea has taken over the world, the gameplay is fun the weapons are good the only downside is that it’s pretty short and the ending was really anti climatic, i just purchased the second one and i hope it does a better job in that regard

Anachronox

Really cool sci-fi RPG by Ion Storm, the writing is pretty good, the story is interesting the characters are also interesting and funny and it does a good job making this sci fi epic balance between seriousness and comedy, sadly it has several bugs that are not fixed by any patch, nothing game breaking but some annoyances, there is also no FULL walkthrough to help you completely though there is a couple that would lead you to the end game there are several side quests unaccounted for in those, side quest also are not tracked by the game so good luck remembering them, i know there is a prima strategy guide for this game but it has not been digitized or at least i could not find it. All and all if you think this game may be your jam i recommend it

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº7!

The Talos Principle

Actually finished this in like 2016 but i just finished the Road to Gehenna DLC, i was just feeling in a puzzle mood and still had this game installed and never played the dlc, so yeah, this games is fantastic, the puzzles are challenging, interesting and fun and not too hard, though you can get a challenge if you want with stars and some secrets, i don’t remember much of the original story but the feeling I remember is really similar to the one the dlc gave me, its subtle and original, filled with philosophy and if you engage with it a bit you can get lost in the game’s logic and ideas, i really really like this game
Punch Club

Fun and interesting managment game, bit tight on the times but the story is interesting and the combat is also fun, would love a more developed sequel

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition

Good metroidvania, the art style is great, the game itself is kinda easy and nothing too much special, but if you are craving a metroidvania it will do the trick

Vampyr

I like vampires, like a lot, and vampire related stuff always appeal to me, this game was no exception, and it didnt let me down, focus home interactive always releases interesting games and DONTNOD have a thing for story focused games so this checked all my boxes, i only wish that maybe focus home could have gotten Spiders involved in the project as it is the kind of game they would make and i always like their work…
In any case, the game is great, the mechanics are interesthing, the story is really good (really like that ending too), the characters are complex and relatable and the combat is fun, the music really fits and i didnt see any bugs that i remember. So yeah, great game, really hope they make a sequel or even better a prequel

Psychonauts 2

COMPLETED!

Played it on the microsoft/xbox store

I completely love this game, i loved the original one and this improves everything, the game looks beatiful keeping the art style but improving on the visuals a lot, the music is amazing and always fits right, the combat is really fun and varied and the exploration is really good and really well paced, the levels are incredibly imaginative and really cool themes (tho i think the original ones were better), and the story somehow manages to follow the original one flawlessly and delivers on every single thing i wanted to see be developed.

This may very well be my favorite 3D Platformer.

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº6!

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

COMPLETED
Really really liked this platformer, good music (gotta love grant kirkhope), great moves and extremly fun, the final (or first) level is extremely hard tho

Heaven’s Vault

Really unique game, loved the atmosphere and figuring out the story of the world, and the linguistic mini game is incredibly compelling, really recommend this game to anyone who finds any part of the game interesting

Haven

Beautiful

Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate

Played it on Epic/Uplay

I’ve been playing the remaining games i had on the assassin’s creed franchise just to get to this one because the setting was really really appealing for me, sadly as is a tendency with the series, it got more and more streamlines and normalized to the point where the game is just a hub for activities that feel non related to each other, it lacks continuity. The characters, the other part i was really exited about, Marx, Dickens, Darwin, etc. like the game itself felt like a bland, underdeveloped, empty shell of a good idea.
Gameplay wise though, i feel this is the best one, the grappling hook is really fun and somehow doesn’t entirely make the climbing obsolete, the carriage riding despite my initial complains with it was good for what it is, and the combat as you would expect is the same as before but with some additions.

The Jack the Ripper DLC was the best part story-wise and I enjoyed it.

Also ubisoft connect rant, it cannot work that bad, it doesnt remember my password, it makes me put a verification code every single time even when i tell it to trust my device and it always logs out do to inactivity, it just so tedious man.

Yesterday Origins

I love pendulo studios, one of the earlier gaming memories i have is playing a demo of Hollywood Monsters that came in a demo disc with, i think, sacred gold edition (another childhood favorite) and dont get me started on the runaway trilogy, man such good games.
This is the sequel to the original yesterday and though the name may make it sound otherwise it is a direct sequel, its been years since i played the original but its still the same pendulo style point and click adventure, satanic urban fantasy mystery, its not their best work i think but its really good anyways, the puzzles are solid, the music is good and the story keeps you interested, i hope there is a third game but i can see no talk about one anywhere.

Also there are a couple of really anoying bugs, like a console poping up and staying there, and if you have your joystick on before starting the game the inventory wont open

A Valley Without Wind

First time i will be talking about a game i did not and will not finish.
I found the game non engagin, i mean, i could play for a couple of hours but i found no enjoyment in it, its too big, too complex for its own good, really overwhelming and i did not have anything pushing me forward to keep playing it at all, just combat after combat in areas that are pretty distinct but only visually every place i entered it was the same layout of randomized geography with building laid around randomly and items that had no meaning too me.

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº5!

Quarentine is almost over here in Argentina and i’ve been playing some games

Yakuza Kiwami 2

Took too long to finish because my joystick broke and took like a year to fix it and so i think i forgot part of the story, still i really liked the story as always yakuza is a masterclass in game making in all aspects, waiting for the summer sale to get me the remastered pack

Technobabylon

Another fantastic wadjet eye game, started it a long while ago and played it half then and half now, really cool sci fi story and the puzzles are mostly well done

Shardlight

Yet another fantastic wadjet eye game, i really liked the post apocalyptic environment i always do, the music stood out in this game for me, the story is kinda generic and there wasn’t any stand out puzzles but still if you like wadjet eye games you will like Shardlight

Life is Strange 2

COMPLETED!

Really liked it, an emotional tale of two brothers trying to do the best they can in an horrible situation, lots of hard, true moments but with a soft, bright side when it comes to brotherhood and relationships and people, atleast thats the experience i got based on my choices, seeing the other endings in youtube right now it seems that the experience can be quite different, i liked life is strange 1 quirk more but life is strange 2 has a more mature, more serious story to tell and it was well done, the only thing that it does worse than the previous game is music, its not bad but it doesnt have any stand out tracks like the first one did. Looking forward for the third game, hope they make a crossover someday

La-Mulana

I’ve been looking at this game for years, i tried several times and never could get the hang of it, i ended up playing it with a guide like 60% of the game, i got to say even that way this game is amazing, a metroidania that challenge the player and asks a lot of it, if you like puzzles that really challenge you try without a guide, the couple i could figure out on my own were really rewarding to do so, and having followed a guide i know that everything you need to know its there, you just have to look for it ,sometimes the solution is halfway across the map in a missable spot but the game trains you to expect that from the beginning, really cool game, amazing music, amazing artwork, a one of a kind adventure

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº4!

Not much in the way of a life review, i am getting my degree in a couple of hours after writting this tho, three years after graduating they are finally giving me the piece of paper that says i did :p

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York

Waited a long while since i finished it to write it because i wanted to try the other 2 characters you can play, never did, probably never will but not because its a bad game, au contraire, its quite good specially since the last visual novel in the vampire the masquerade universe i played was trash, the art is good, the intrigue is real, and the blood mechanic was well implemented

CHANGE: A Homeless Survival Experience

Same as with the vampire game finished it a while ago but wanted to try the other characters, though i will probably come back to this, this game was hard and too real, the mechanics made me really empathize and think about the reallity of homeless people, its not fun in a traditional way but it is rewarding

Titanfall® 2

Great game, loved the story, and the gameplay is reallyyy fun, even tried a bit of the multiplayer real fun game, play it

Mass Effect™: Andromeda Deluxe Edition

This game consumed my life for like a week, its story is not nearly as interesting as the original, and well the animations still suck and the soundtrack is meh, but aside from that its pretty good, most characters are interesting, the combat is really great, as is the nomad driving, but as i said it consumed my life as did the original trilogy when i played it so i hope for a better realized sequel

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Took a while to finish it, same quality as human revolution in all aspects, but for some reason i didnt like it as much, i think it was a bit too shallow, the story didnt grab me as much, i liked the map a bit better. Still i really like the concept in general and i think maybe its time to try the older ones again, tried 3 or 4 times to play the original and never could get past the initial stage

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº3!

Ah i wanted to wait until i finished Yakuza Kiwami 2 before posting this but damn it, my joystick broke, and i had a hard time getting replacement parts for it and i did and then the replacement part was broken too so i will just post it now, someday i’ll finish kiwami 2.

Not much going on my life to deserve a life update but i am just taking more care of myself, i am kind of on a diet (lost 5 kg) and i am doing great in general
Journey

After all this years hearing about how great is this game i am finally able to play it, and its good, traversing the world is fun, the world itself is beautiful… and is really awesome and unique how attached i get to another person playing even though we cant speak to each other

Bury Me, My Love

Played it on my phone over the course of like 2 years, most of what happened i already forgot but its a good story about the journey of a girl refugee to find a better place to live and its pretty well written, i should have chosen the option to not play it real time tho

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones

Still playing lovecraftian games and reading lovecraftian things, love the theme and it helps me to create atmosphere for my Call of Cthulhu 7th edition adventure i am narrating.
This game is REALLY good, love the writing and the art is great, the music fits the theme perfectly and is pretty hard (specially at the beginning) so that good for the theme too, 2 problems with the game tho, there are several bugs, that bother a lot, one actually crashed the game for me at half of the end cutscene so that wasnt nice, there was also a spell that i had spent a lot of resources to get, the spell just didnt work at all, it was really bugged, but anyway the game is great despite that

Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst

Loved the first game such an unique and beautiful game, still is even more pretty than this newer one but this is great too, mirrors edge games do what sonic games never could do for me, that feeling of going fast and wanting to keep going. Not as good as the first one it has a lot of tacked on things like the pointless upgrades, or the huge amount of score board missions that put you against other people, i dont care for those, i would have appreciated some more side quests instead of that.
Still the map is really well design for non stop running, the story is good enough and i really really enjoy running

INMOST

A friend gifted me this game out of the blue the day it came out and i finished it that same day, its a short (like 6 hours, is that short? I dont even know anymore) game that tells three stories at once and it does every single one pretty well, the puzzles are cool and there were a couple ones that i thought were REALLY good

Titan Quest Anniversary Edition

Played this with 4 other friends, i have no idea what the story past the first act was, the enemies were cool and its a nice game to play with friends, thats all i can say about it, we finished immortal throne but i think i will not be getting the DLC

Hylics

Ah weird rpg maker games, they used to be my bread and butter when i was on highschool, a couple of them are some of my favorite games ever (mostly LISA and also undertale to a lesser degree) i heard about this one a long time ago and it was just as i expected weird and bizarre claymation game, the “plot” and writing and really simple, really convoluted and it feels like a fever dream to me… so yeah, i highly recommend it

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

Really really liked this game lots of adrenaline pumping action, not stop violence a really really cathartic game, the story and the music are alright didnt care much because i was too busy kicking ass, still i liked the characters, i am too used to characters not being a dumbasses who swear every other word and this being the opposite is a nice change of pace, i will be playing the duke nukem tour on and off probably, its a really good game when i just want to shoot away the stress and i really like duke nukem (i think i am one of the few that actually didnt hate duke nukem forever)

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº2!

Moonlighter

Good game, not exceptional, but good to listen to a podcast while playing it, watching the amount of gold you sell stuff at increment little by little was really satisfying, reminds me a lot of Recettear, i remember being in a group of spanish speaking game developers in facebook and the developer of this game was showing it and apparently he didn’t even know about Recettear!

Caveblazers

Another rogue like that i finish, it was a short one for me, i got a really broken set of blessings and cards in a daily challenge and managed to basically beat the last 2 or 3 bosses in less than 30 seconds even the last boss and all its phases. Its good, its more like spelunky than rogue legacy because you only have your skills to rely on but you can unlock trough playing new things to be found in your next playthrough. Its good, now i have to found another 2D platformer rogue like

A Short Hike

This game is sweet and nostalgic, every character is really well written and the game overall i think its perfect, nothing is missing and nothing is filler, its as the title says just a short hike but in that small trek there a lot of heart

Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure

Small little side game to last year’s (damn it came out 2017 not last year) Thimbleweed Park which i loved, this is a series of simple puzzle (30 puzzles and really simple, there are 2 or 3 thinkers but nothing crazy), it has a small bit of content for fans of the game, also the credits are cool
Papo & Yo

Pretty short game that was suggested by Steam during the spring cleaning event, it has some beautiful and unique environments and some good music and it is trying to mean something as if its trannsmits it message? I dont know, the message didnt resonate with me but i can empathize with people who do, its gameplay is very simple, some mild platforming and some easy puzzles

Assassin’s Creed® Unity

Been playing this on Uplay, assassins creed games had been a drag for me, every game aside from the ezio games (man i love AC:2) i’ve been playing just by inertia, now i wanted to play syndicate and thats why i started playing the games in the series i missed (i stopped at 4 but didnt have rogue, also i hate the naval combat in 4 but maybe thats because i did EVERY SIGNLE ONE of the ship missions before doing anything else and i might have just gotten tired of it).
Unity is no difference in terms of dragging for me, i think its the worst one tbh, i liked the setting but thats it, the story is dull, the characters too, and the ending was really really underwhelming, still i played it because its a huge skinner box, all those collectibles all the weapons, every little thing i collected it because my brain told me so but what a drag, i have dead kings to finish and i dont know if i will be able

Update: finished Dead Kings, it was alright, i liked Leon but i wish they would have given Napoleon a more substantial role

Metro Exodus - Sam’s Story

Good closure for the game, Sam was always one of the most interesting characters in the game and a dlc just for him its really cool, this is the first time that the game made me think if the “villain” was actually bad, i mean up until now it was pretty clear that one path is evil and the other is not, but this time not so much, i like that

QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº1!

Spelunky

Fricking Spelunky, i hate this game, i hate it so much, i hate rougelikes/lites but for some reason i couldnt stop playing spelunky until i finally was able to finish it, not even the good ending but i am not even going to try that, almost 300 houndred hours of playing, i hate that i love this game so much

Rogue Legacy

And even tho i hate it, i needed another game like it, i just cant listen to podcasts without something like it, and so i finished Rogue Legacy much quickly than Spelunky, now i am playing Caveblazers to scratch that ich

Metro Exodus

Now something i truly loved, i loved both previous games, scripted linear shooters with an oppressive atmosphere and a heartfelt story, i was really worried because this was open world but they nailed it, the game is superb, the shooting is better than ever, the atmosphere is as opressive but they turned it up a notch with the heartfelt story, such a good series, hope they keep making them and with this quality.

Shenmue I & II

Speaking of heartfelt stories, this isnt hearfelt in the same way as metro but it has so much soul, this game is something special, this story is something unique in video games, the combat is great tho i didnt like the transition between the combat in the first game and the second one, shenmue 1 had a much more agile feeling to its combat, like a brawler, but the second one its a lot more rigid, like a 1v1 fighting game, still i didnt dislike it but it was really difficult to transition from one to the other, now to wait for the third game to be released on steam, it will be a while but atleast i wont wait 18 years like the people that played shenmue 2 when it originally came out :p

Disco Elysium

Seems like the theme for this month for me is games with a lot of soul and amazing writing (that and fricking spelunky) and this game is just amazing in both respects, the story is just something else, and the characters are all so unique and believable, and thats all this game is, writting but oh man is it GOOD WRITING, play this game and do yourself a favour, aaaaaaaah and the music is still stuck in my head and my playlist

Long time no see! 1 year after my last post, quick life review, changed work twice, thats it!

WHENERVER UPDATE!

Call of Cthulhu

Finished this game around May, i started it playing while preparing myself to narrate the Call of Cthulhu pen and paper RPG for some friend so to get inmersed in the style and whatnot, its an interesting game, ended up doing a lot of save scumming for a shitty reason, they introduced a mechanic from the game called spot hidden, in wich if a person TRIES to find something they have to roll a dice for it (based on a stat), the same stat is on this game and is rolled without you knowing it when you enter a room or a level wich has a hidden object, i didnt like that, this is not a pen and paper rpg, so i looked a guide to know where the hidden objects where and just reloaded the game until i got the item, that was dumb, but the game itself isnt, its pretty good actually, the narrative is good and the atmosphere is creepy as it should, its a pretty good game

Yakuza Kiwami

Loved the first one and this is just more of that, loved it and all its quirkiness, overall i think i like zero more but this is great nonetheless, i have two to play but i’ll wait a bit to play that

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Been following this game since its kickstarter, gotta say i really love it, huge immersive world, great graphics (tho i had to play it on the lowest graphic setting and even still the performance was poor, my pc is getting old :c ), amazing music, history based, huge cast of characters that i really got into, by the end i was making my own hypothesis about how a certain political figure would react to what was happening, the main issue with the game is that it is a bit buggy, but i got around it, loved the quests and loved every minute of it, nothing like hunting bow and arrow in the middle of the forest with only my dog and the sunshines on my back as companions

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

A friend of mine let me borrow his 3ds just to play this game, i’ve been a huge fan of the zelda series since i was a kid(my favorite are the oracle games), played them all except breath of the wild now, and i have to say, this game is amazing, a sequel to a fan favorite that its by itself a GREAT game, loved every second of it, whenever i had a second at work i pop the 3ds out and played a bit, this game is amazing

Metroid: Samus Returns

Never was much of a metro guy, castlevania was more my jam, but i have to say, this game was impresive, and its a really good action game on handheld (which I normally dont like at all)

Azure Striker GUNVOLT

Once again, i was never much of a megaman guy but i have to say, this game was impresive, and its a really good action game on handheld (which I normally dont like at all), but i didnt even try to get the true ending, there was no way i was going to be able to do it

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Good game, fun, scary, great story, but by great Cthulhu is it buggy! Lots of bugs even with the best patch… the worst part is the ending, there is a bug that basically kills you 15 seconds before the ending, i had to use like 7 cheats to avoid this, if you like Cthulhu, play this game but be aware of all of this
