QUARANTINE SESSIONS Nº5!
Quarentine is almost over here in Argentina and i’ve been playing some games
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
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
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
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
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
Great game, loved the story, and the gameplay is reallyyy fun, even tried a bit of the multiplayer real fun game, play it
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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!
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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)
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
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
Just on game this month and not even a steam one, been working, been trying to get a new job, overall pretty regular month, hope you are all doing well
No One Lives Forever
(Not available for purchase digitally)
So i’ve been playing this game for about 2 years, whenever my internet connection is down i feel like playing this game, i illegally dowloaded it years ago, sadly there isnt,and i dont think there will be at least for a while, a way to get this game digitally, due to companies basically not knowing and dont wanting to spend time to look if they own this game or not, anyways the game is great and it aged great, the humor specially its great, the story is good, the music is what you would expect for a spy game, and the gameplay is great, specially the gadgets! If you can get a copy on ebay or so you should try it, even download it, i think that in this kinda cases you are entitled to download it
I really liked the first game, this one is weird for me, i liked a lot of the things here, monster design, level desing (almost like an open world horror game) and characters… but i dont know, the story just wasnt up to part, maybe because there isnt that big plot twist that was in the first one but still, i really like the game, play it if you liked it the first, most people tend to like this one more than the original one
This was a sour experience to me, having loved the first two games i decided to pre purchase the games most expensive edition, and around half of the game i had a game breaking bug, basically i couldnt move on because one enemy in a fight was bugged and couldnt be killed, i wrote the support about it, i wrote them on twitter too, and even in the steam discussion, no word from anyone, and i wasnt the only one with that problem either, alas after months of waiting i decided to use a cheat that killed every enemy on the screen to just bypass that fight, but i shouldnt have to cheat to acomplish a basic thing, and even knowing the cheat was bad for me because i know knew how to do it and even did it acouple of times after, anyway… the game itself is great, a great finale for a trilogy that i’ve been following from the very start of the original kickstarter, its all it was meant to be, beautiful, fun, incredible music, and the story is GREAT, great conclusion, but i implore anyone looking to get into the banner saga series, please dont use a guide, i used a guide for some things and even tho i really enjoyed the game i know i would have enjoyed it a lot more have i not used a walkthrough
Hey there, havent posted since august, basically because i havent finished a game since august, and this month i have one game to show for sadly, but its a great one, working has been taking a lot more of my time that i expected, having to work extra hours from work and getting home really tired, that the part i didnt expect, also i started a course in COBOL (really old programming language that mostly only banks use)last month and i am still going, is a free course with a job oportunity attatched so hopefully i get in, but thanks to that course i just get to home and go to sleep and thats it, now after writting this post i have to complete 5 assignments i was given yesterday and finish them before monday so wish me luck, anyway, the game:
WOW i really really liked this game, in fact it became my top 2 game of all time tied with DOOM (2016) it just a perfect game across the board, excellent combat, excellent story, excellent music, excellent sound,excellent world desing, and oh man all those mini games ! you just cant get bored playing this game, tho its really really hard to 100% i have almost 200 hours and still have a long way to go (mostly because i suck at mahjong and shogi and the achivments tide to that will be really hard for me)
cant wait for kiwami to be released, i need more of this game
So first month of job update, doing great on the job but i had a busy month for me so only two games this month
Pretty good game, i dont think i like it as much as the main game but i really really like it anyways, the chemestry between rachel and chloe is great and even tho the story couldnt be much different that what we were told in LiS it still managed to surprise me quite a bit a couple of times and i really loved roleplaying with mikey and stephanie and there put depth in characters that previously didnt have so much like david, but i will stop there, if you liked life is strange or want to play the original one play this game, its pretty good
Ah i love Wadjet Eye, classic point and click games with so much charm and love put into them, it just feels cozy to play most of their games, and seeing that Dave Gilbert (CCO of wadjet eye) is going to be giving a lecture in an event in my city the 30st i decided to finish my backlog of wadjet eye games, now i have 2 games remaining (that i own, i still need to get Unavowed) and 6 days, so i dont think i will be able but still i will try.
As always with wadjet eye games the music is great, the art is better than you would expect for such an small studio using AGS, the story and setting are really cool and well done, pretty interesting historical fiction. Give it a go, and try every wadjet eye game! (dont know about Emerald City Confidential and Puzzle Bots tho)
Hey future Leonidas here, i met Dave Gilbert, his lecture was great and he is really cool, here is a picture with me and him, i am the one that is not dave Gilbert :p
