Legend of Grimrock 2

After 4 years of having left this game unplayed i decided to finish it up once and for all, i was stuck in a puzzle and decided i should start over again but wanted to see where i was before. And after less than an hour playing i reached the final boss, i was really close before hahah
Anyway its a good game, the first one was my introduction into Dungeon Crawlers and really liked it. This is the same but better, more items, larger more developed map and areas and really good lore.

Life is Strange: True Colors

I like life is strange games (life are strange?) this one is no different, they are well written, nice looking simple point and click adventure games. If you like young adult superanatural stories they are for you, i think this is my least favorite one tho, not that there’s anything wrong with it, just didn’t resonate that much with me, but mostly is too short so i think neither the characters nor the story developed as much as they needed too.

Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch™ Remastered

Amazing RPG with a mixture of Pokemon/Shin Megami Tensei and fantasy rpg’s mechanics with an interesting story and beautiful art by Ghibli, i can’t recommend it enough if that sounds like your thing,

Steelrising

Ah another Spiders’ game, now i only have Faery - Legends of Avalon left to play and will probably do it before Greedfall 2 comes out.

As for steelrising, it’s a pretty good soulslike with a unique setting, a clockworkpunk (?) victorian france, it’s pretty well paced but a bit easy, the story is interesting but the game is kinda bad at letting you know if something will prevent you from advancing the story, some of it is bugs and some of it seems planned, still i had lots of fun with it battling some really cool enemies with fun weapons i’ll probably play some other soulslike soon

Forgive Me Father

Really good boomer shooter, lovecraftian themes always draw me in but the game itself made me stay, its fun, frantic, and really filled with cosmic horror. It has a lot of pop culture references and the music is great. Amazing game to zone out and kill stuff, can’t wait to get the sequel

The Pale Beyond

Amazing game, survival resource management visual novel hybrid, it tells a really great story about an expedition to the arctic, it manages to be really well balanced while always keeping you tense and preparing for the worst, the story it tells and the characters in it are really well written and the art is excellent, i wholly recommend this

Faery - Legends of Avalon

COMPLETED!
First game made by Spiders, I really like them and all of their games trace their roots to this one game, before this they only made console versions for other company’s games but this is their first rpg. It’s all there, the interesting settings, companions with a likeness meter towards you, and even the writing style, but it’s pretty lackluster; no voice acting, small levels, short and uninteresting missions. In general I don’t recommend it, for me in particular it’s a good experience as a fan of the company and seeing how their style started. But it has something really cool, because it’s a fairy game where you spend the whole of the game flying so it has a lot of verticality in its levels and moving around was really fun after understanding it.
EDIT: Had to add the achivments through Steam Achivment Manager, as for this game to work in modern PCs it needs a patch that for some reason deactivates achivments

DAVE THE DIVER

COMPLETED!

Amazing game, interesting unique mechanics, good music, good characters and specially really good animations and art, really good game

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Got the masterchief collection and decided to start from the beginning i already played CE and halo 2 when i was in high school but i honestly didn’t remember anything, the first one is good but nothing special, a bit too many enemies and the driving isn’t really for me, i get what they are trying to do but i never feel completely in control. Anyways despite this i think this is a good game actually and the new coat of paint really looks good

SteamWorld Dig 2

Really excellent metroidvania in every sense but is extremely short

Hypnospace Outlaw

Really cool game, simulating a 90s dream-like OS and your job in it as a sort of moderator, finding malicious software, harassment and all that kind of stuff it has a really good central plot but most of all is a really cool simulation of 90s forums and filled with personality and a lot of great music and art

Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer

Now going from hypnospace outlaw to this was a no brainer is a classic style FPS ala Doom, based on one of the characters from hypnospace outlaw, its funny, has good weapons, good music and is really well designed all around the only downside is that it is pretty short

Return to Monkey Island

Amazing return for the monkey island series, still not quite pleased with the art style but aside from that its great, the puzzles are good challenging but fair, the music is amazing and the humor is as good as ever, i really liked the story in this one but feel that the ending, even though i understand what they are doing, is a bit of a cop out

Mountain

⛰️

GRIS

Really beautiful game, really artsy and mostly really linear and easy, couple of puzzles there but none too hard

DuckTales: Remastered

Really fun retro platformer, great music, mechanics are fun and the story is silly and funny. A saturday morning cartoon made videogame

Residue: Final Cut

Pretty short platformer with a nice story

XIII - Classic

Really great spy action game, reminds me a lot of no one lives forever but with a more subdued humor, mechanically it is really great. All the weapons and gadgets are fun to use, though I wish there were more gadgets. The story is pretty good and the music really fits this game, the aesthetic is also really cool

Shotgun King: The Final CheckmateShotgun King: The Final Checkmate

Pretty interesting take on a roguelike, strategy and thinking ahead is key and even though certain power ups make you a lot more likely to succeed it still feels like a challenge

Yakuza 3 Remastered

Making the change from the kiwami games to the remastered versions was kinda hard for me as its a stiffer game than the ones i played before, still its great, storywise i believe it was the one that i followed the most, almost making me cry. As for the game is still Yakuza, and that’s a great thing to be

Greedfall

Spiders make some really interesting classic bioware style games, always liked them and this is no exception. The world is really cool as always but this time i could really feel myself like a conquistador exploring wild new lands with wild new people and magic that i couldn’t understand. My biggest gripe with this and all spiders’ games is that they need more budget, their games have a lot of potential but cut corners al around specially with animations and that makes the world feel more gamey than it needs too, someday i hope spiders gets a proper budget and development time and we will have an excellent game

SKYHILL
https://store.steampowered.com/app/382140/SKYHILL

Pretty simple but fun turn based zombie survival game.

Demon Turf

COMPLETED!
This is a great 3d collect-a-thon platformer, the moveset is really great and the control is spot on, the music is GREAT, the characters are cool, there is a great amount of challenge but is not overbearing. The amount of care that this game has is amazing, there are a LOT of objectives and collectibles and all of them are fun to get, the combat is really fun, boss fights specially, there are also a lot of cool easter eggs and references and secrets.
I recommend this game to everyone that even has a passing interest in 3D Platformers

Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy

Damn was this frustrating but also very rewarding and thought-provoking. I really felt a sense of accomplishment once i reached the top of the slope, play it but take your time don’t push it you will end up angry and frustrated

Graveyard Keeper

Really great management sim / stardew valley like game, it consumed my life for the past two weeks or so, once you get past the first couple of days the flow of the game gets really quick and really rewarding, really enjoyed my time with it though i feel the story even tho interesting is kinda hollow, maybe sequel baiting?

Cult of the Lamb

Pretty fun roguelite with a great artstyle it also has a good foundation for good lore but sadly it is
not developed :c

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated

COMPLETED!
Pretty good platformer a bit easy but fun enough and it has a lot of really neat references to the show, if you have any amount of nostalgia for spongebob squarepants you will like it, the music is also really good

Fallout 4

I like this game i really do but as a fan of the fallout series it feels like a husk of what could and should have been an awesome entry in the fallout series, its all there interesting locales, characters, plotlines and questlines, weapons, all of it is good but its all just frosting over a cake made of nothing, it doesnt develop any quests more than the bare minimum it has to, like for example i just finished a murder mystery mission in the Far Harbor DLC and you found out that [SPOILER] the wife of a character has been murderded and you kill the murderer very loudly the narrative feedback for this action by the husband and every other character in this Clue mansion is things like “That sounded intense” or “That was some commotion” and these are people that have known each other for more than 200 years! (no time to explain). I want to hear what these people have to say, damn it! This is supposedly a role playing game! [/SPOILER] and yes after you finish some quest the results from them will be announced by Travis in Diamond City Radio and that’s great but it’s just a few that are like that and it’s not close to the level of Three Dog in Fallout 3 (man, i love Three Dog), put more heart into it Bethesda! I feel that every game nowadays it’s getting more and more simplified to “appeal to a wider market” and i get that but you are losing focus and removing everything that makes games special i feel like i could be eating something nice and homemade and instead i am eating fast food all “polished” and bland the whole AAA industry feel like that, indies are better but i feel like in some aspects it’s getting there too.

Well enough ranting, i like the game it has some nice story vignettes (though it lacks a compelling beginning-to-end narrative) the combat and the weapons are fun (though it can get to a point that it’s EXTREMELY tedious dealing with bullet spongy enemies ) and the music it’s great! (no buts here, the music IS great)

60 Seconds! Reatomized

Pretty cool choose you own story kinda game, it is an improvement to a traditional text adventure in the way that i has a gameplay component in each run at the beginning when you collect things for your fallout shelter and it has a really cool visual identity, i recommend it

Deadlight: Director’s Cut

I think i played the non-directors’s cut edition before but i am not so sure, the game is good, it has an interesting, short but sweet story and it doesnt seem to be constricted by its 2D platform genre, it has actually some cool platforming puzzles, still is a short and not too complex, i would really like seeing a more developed sequel for this

West of Loathing

Well i hoped to like this game, i played i bit of https://www.kingdomofloathing.com/ before and really liked it, well this “actual game” based on it turned out to be a great RPG, really really funny but it is a pretty decent game too, but man it be funny, really looking forward to grabbing shadows over loathing when it goes on sale

High on Life

Pretty good game, gameplay is nothing amazing but it has some pretty fun ideas, the standout here though are graphics, even when i had to play it on Low it looked really good, and the humor, its a really funny game if you like rick and morty style humor, both visual humor and writing are top notch

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
