Hey there!
I’m quite new to the website (joined September 6th, 2021). My bargain hunting has gotten worse the last two years, so now it’s time to defeat my evergrowing backlog. Since I’m bad at choosing and the size of the backlog doesn’t help, I devised a simple strategy: throwing dice!

A little bit about me: I like RPGs, roguelikes and games like Harvest Moon, irrationally hunting achievements and cuddling my two cats:)

So, it seems that my backlog grew again by 31 games since my last report, but that’s okay^^

Assassinations of the past weeks:

Spellkeeper is a puzzle game, it wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t a lot of fun. Mirror’s Edge was a lot of fun after I understood how to do the wall run^^. Smile for me was good and a bit weird. I enjoyed Plantera, even though at a certain point there’s nothing left to do, but wait. The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game is short, has funny dialogues and that’s basically it. Portal was a lot of fun and I will probably play a little more for the achievements. Bioshock was really cool, I had a great time and at some point I will definitely go for another playthrough on the highest difficulty! Witch and Hero was strangely addicting, but I don’t know yet if I will go back to collect the remaining achievements. I really enjoyed Kingdom: Classic and I will definitely return to it for the achievements, but since there is no variation in the playthroughs, I will do it a later time :)

So apparently my backlog grew again in the past month by 30 games… how is that even possible?!

Assassinations of the past weeks:

Paused:

Currently playing:

I’m very proud that I finally finished Assassin’s Creed since it has been bugging me for a few months now xD But other than that I mostly finished short/free games. Life has been a little stressful, so I decided to pause Cook, Serve, Delicious 2 for now. I still adore it, the constant time pressure is just a little too much at the moment.
And I started Bioshock and it is really cool (and creepy) so far!

Somehow, my library grew again by 14 games since my lasty entry, so the progress bar hasn’t changed much^^

Assassinations of the past weeks:

Ongoing:

I’m still not done with Assassin’s Creed… but at some point I will beat it! I do love the Cook, Serve, Delicious Series so far (and I actually found this site while googling an achievement from the first game:) )! And Dungreed is fun, too.

On another note, I currently have an itch for hero/creature collector or breeding games, so I’m grateful for suggestions :)

My library grew by 11 games since my last report, but I still managed a gain of two percent on the completed section, whoop!

Assassinations of the past weeks:

I really enjoyed Glass Masquerade and kept thinking that my Mom would as well, so I might get it for her :) Summer in Mara was cool, too, even though it was more of “Go there, fetch this” than a farming sim.

Work in progress:

  • Assassin's Creed

    22.8 hours playtime

    no achievements

I’m still in the middle of Assassin’s Creed from last month’s Challenge Me!-Event, but it is a bit repetitive, so I’m playing it in short sessions.

Planned for the coming weeks:

Moony1986 picked out the first 5 games for me and I am taking this as an opportunity to finally get the last achievement of Cook, Serve, Delicious! before playing its successor :)

Hope you all are having a good week!

I have completed these games (which were all chosen by the dice):

I don’t feel like writing a lot about each of them, so I’ll just point out my favourites: I liked Valley, even though it was nothing special, it was quite relaxing and not too exhausting, so perfect for evenings after a long work day. Agent A was fun, the puzzles were not too hard, but also not way too easy, so I was motivated to keep playing. equilinox was a cute and fun game where you had to build different biotopes and evolve plants and animals and since I like animals I enjoyed it very much :D

Next up are the games I was challenged to play by Ninglor03 (ty!) in this month’s Challenge Me!-Event (I chose to go from shortest to longest playtime):

I’ve already started and beaten The Uncertain but unfortunately missed one achievement in my first playthrough, so I’m in for another round… Then comes Glass Masquerade and after that my second tries at Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Assassin’s Creed. And finally, Summer in Mara which I’m really looking forward to (saving the best for last)! Wish me luck! :D
