FAR: Lone Sails is done and dusted. This was an excellent game. It has characteristics of a 2-D walking simulator, but also has a color scheme similar to games like Monochroma and Inside, has lite puzzle and platforming elements, and also has a base maintenance mechanic similar to the one found in The Final Station. Also set on a mostly dead world. Really nice game. I hope they consider building off the silent lore of this game for another game in the future.
The Hex is also done and dusted…and was also an excellent game. I did think it was maybe a little slower paced than I would have liked, but that is really a minor nitpick. The game is a really cool twist on the classic whodunit, and it is pretty much all genres of gaming within this one game as well. I’m guessing there is an ending I haven’t seen, but I did elect to skip the glowing door and head back and to the right instead, and that ending made the whole game worthwhile.
Stone is done and dusted. It’s a pretty short walking sim where you play as a down and out koala bear. Honestly, the game was a buzzkill. However, there is an in game theater with like six full length old school movies/classic films including one of the Living Dead movies. That alone is worth the price of admission no matter how much of a drag the actual game was.
Donut County is also done and dusted. Took about two hours and was a genuine pleasure to play. I would highly recommend this one to everyone. Basically, you are a hole operator (donut delivery person) and through various scenarios, your hole must consume everything on screen (or in their individual sandboxes anyway)…and there is an actual story, and it is excellent. :)
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the First Blade is done and dusted. Three episodes and a bit of a tear jerker. Beyond that, excellent expansion. Still wrapping up some base game side quests and have knocked out two of the four critters needed to get the keys to Atlantis or what have you for the other expansion. 133 total actual gameplay hours in so far.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is done and dusted. Sort of. The base game main campaign is complete, but I still haven’t uncovered the head of the Kult of Kosmos, although I’m pretty sure I know who she is Aspasia. I remember Myrrine doubting her and it kind of left a sour taste in my mouth for Aspasia. Plus, as I think about what happened to Pericles and who really had access to his habits and to him in general, it starts to add up in my head.. Also, I have the majority of DLC left as well. So, done, but not done. Right now I’m right at 100 hours. Probably will be around 140 before I finish everything else. Truly an excellent game and one of those, if I could only afford one game, type of games.
I also played through Draugen. Honestly, it’s pretty meh overall. Not bad, and it had a lot of positives, but it wasn’t especially noteworthy despite that. Also a bit of a comical story from the perspective that it doesn’t actually seem to have anything to do with Draugen other than maybe being a metaphor for drowning in your delusion, but that’s also comical since the protagonist is both delusional in that he is following the ghost of a person that doesn’t exist, but then also has some very real independent personalities in his head, which he knows is just in his head, and is totally cool with. There promises to be sequels (or perhaps even episodes), and I’ll check them out if they release, but still, I feel this wasn’t nearly as good as it could have been despite having great graphics, excellent voice acting, and an interesting story. It definitely feels like the freshmen effort for a series that will probably improve with new installments.
I plan to fire up Wolfy 2 next along with trying out Project Winter and the Blackout Club and WW 3 lol.
Well, it doesn’t seem like I will finish anything else this month, but I have retired a couple games:
Amid Evil - Actually, as far as Doom/Quake type clones go, this one is excellent. But, I guess I just don’t enjoy the genre so much anymore and I know I won’t stick with it to completion.
Dusk - Same as Amid Evil as far as it being excellent but not my cup of tea any longer.
Orogenesis - a JRPG maker style title that flows well and plays immaculately….until the game breaking bug I encountered anyway that prevents further progression. I left a note in the game’s forum, but it’s gone unanswered for a bit now, si I’m guessing the dev doesn’t really look at the forum any longer.
Swag and Sorcery - Cute and fun until you hit that grind wall.
God’s Trigger - Over the top twin stick shooter that channels stuff like American Gods, Sin City, and so on. Sounds awesome, but in reality, it is just meh. IMO anyway.
Fractured Lands - Nobody plays it and there aren’t even bots to play against solo. Dead game, dead purchase. Hopefully they actually make it out of EA though and get some sort of resurgence.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey - Maybe because I’ve been exploring as I go along, but I haven’t noted any grind walls yet beyond what you would normally expect from an AssCreed game. This game is pretty awesome, and is probably as close as you can get to adopting the positives from Witcher 3 while still retaining an AssCreed identity. 41 hours in and probably the same or more left lol.
Wandersong - This will easily end up on the top of my “most ridiculous games ever” unofficial list. Also a lot of fun and just light-hearted goodness. I’m midway through Act 5 right now and around 7 hours in. Super kid friendly game as well btw.
We, The Revolution - I’m on case 9 right now. I’m not liking or disliking this game. It’s interesting from a historical perspective, but I feel the investigation parts (in this case, trial questions) are far more obtuse than something like LA Noire or Papers Please. I’m gonna play longer, and it does introduce new gameplay aspects as you progress, but I’m not loving it.
Indecision. is done and dusted. Pretty weird little adventure. I kind of liked it.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is also done and dusted. This one will go down as an all timer in my estimation. Amazing story and voice acting, touching and yet creepy as hell, awesome setting and graphics, fun and interesting gameplay. This one should be on people’s radars.
Far Cry: New Dawn. Actually, I’m at the final boss fight, so I’m just gonna include it now since that’ll be over next time I fire the game up. I enjoyed it and I really liked this version of the post apocalypse in general.
Mythgard: Currently, there is only one story chapter for the campaign (which is done and dusted), a bunch of tutorials, and some PvP that is really at this point PvBot. Fun game in the vein of any of your Magic the Gathering type games. It’s supposed to release sometime this summer, so hopefully there will be more story content at the least. For now, it’s a really cool, cyberpunk meets American Gods type story with nice comic book style cutscenes and surprisingly good voice acting.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
We, The Revolution
Lovecraft’s Untold Stories
Trüberbrook is done and dusted. Fun point and click adventure with a nice sense of humor and fun story. I also like that the puzzles were not too difficult. Didn’t get in the game’s way as happens in a lot of PnC’s. Anyway, I enjoyed it. Took about 6 hours to play through and see both endings.
Thing-in-Itself is done and dusted. Decent little interactive story about lack of closure in a relationship. Took right at 15 minutes to complete.
Also retired a few games:
Death Goat - Actually an awesome little bullet hell game with a death metal (mostly) soundtrack. But, not really my cup of tea.
Finding Nemo - Doesn’t support WIn 7 much less Win 10 and is unplayable on my computer. Just get a black screen with audio sadly.
Nioh Complete Edition - This game is actually pretty good, but I don’t love the grindy nature of the game at all and I definitely don’t love the way the story progression is mapped out. IDK. Maybe I’ll revisit it one day, but I doubt it.
It’s been a minute since my last update. Between then and now, I’ve finished a couple games and retired even more lol.
Metro Exodus (Steam): A great game through and through. I don’t know that it was as good as Last Light overall, but it was definitely better than 2033, which was a fantastic game in its own right. A thing Exodus did that neither really fully explored was making the ancillary characters people you care about. There are so many sad and/or touching moments in the game. You can also lose crew throughout the various areas. I did lose one as I killed too many locals in one area which led to one of the Spartans staying behind to help the rest rebuild. That aside, pretty sure I got the best ending possible. Survived and found a place to chill.
Underground Gossip (Steam): Didn’t love this game at all. I saw three of the endings, but overall, wasn’t impressive and I ended up not bothering to get the rest of the endings.
ALASKA (Steam): This is a mediocre walking sim that I’m also calling a Tyler Durden simulator. Not really a good game, but not a bad one per se either.
The Lost Valley - Couldn’t get this one to actually run, so peace out.*
Lovecraft Quest - A Comix Game - The RNG is there, and I found the puzzles to be of the aggravating sort. This is definitely more a candidate for mobile gaming with the QTE’s rather than combat, and RNG maps. Plus, it’s a rogue like on top of that all lol. Didn’t love it.
Adam Waste - Another game that wouldn’t run properly. Ah well.
Generation Zero - Semi retired pending the devs finishing up developing the game (which is sad considering it’s already seen full release). That said, I was really enjoying it until the bugs became too game breaking every time I played. I will revisit this in the future though and have left it downloaded for now.
Nowhere Prophet: - A roguelike cyberpunk CCG with heavy FTL elements. The game is actually pretty awesome, but right now, the balancing is way off leading to some pretty unfair situations, made worse since it relies heavily on RNG as well. So, probably going to set it down for a bit pending its end of the month projected release on Steam.
Mythgard - Another CCG. This one is online only though. I’d say that whereas the dev of Another Prophet says Magic and such games are an influence, in Mythgard, they actually seem to be a strong influence. Also, there is a single player campaign which, so far, is a pretty cool Cyberpunk meets Gat Out of Hell type story. Not really sure when its official release date it, although I’m pretty sure I read it will be this summer sometime.
Vaporum - Although I also own this on Steam, I’m playing on the PS4 for the overall improved ease of play. Really cool Steampunk dungeon crawler. One character and no switching either, which I personally appreciate.
Crudelis - I believe I’m close to the end of a run. Interesting and kind of groundbreaking RPG Maker title.
One Finger Death Punch 2 - If you liked the first one, you’ll love the second one. Most likely.
Macrotis: A Mother’s Journey is done and dusted. It was a pleasant platformer/puzzler. Stunning graphics, mostly good audio, pretty solid gameplay and a few cool added gameplay mechanics to make the game more interesting. Took me a bit more than 5 hours to play through and I’d say it was good overall. Not too complex….more of a casual experience, albeit with a bit of a darker story despite also carrying a whimsical tone here and there.
I also played through a seven pack of mini games that came through my curation. Of the seven, I only actually finished Tricky Cat, but all of them were at least decent if not good.
I also advanced the story in Edge of Eternity a bit more. I’m kind of at the point where the glitches (audio especially) are becoming a bit more problematic, so I may shelve it pending it seeing full release. The game is excellent, but it also needs work.
Beyond that, I think I’ll focus on Lamplight City and Final Fantasy XV now, although I did also start Dark Souls Remastered today. But, that is more of a here and there game for me right now I think.
