The Death of Erin Myers is done and dusted. Pretty decent game. It’s a detective/mystery story centered around little “escape room” types of scenarios, wherein you have to clear a few puzzles to clear the vignette and move onto the next scene. Eventually, this all leads you to a pretty dark place. I’d say it took me right at two hours to complete, and I wasn’t really in any hurry. This was a Christmas gift from a good friend, but honestly, it’s worth buying at its asking price. It’s a solid psychological horror puzzle game that isn’t so complex as to have you seeking out a guide, and can be finished in a sitting. I enjoyed it.

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is done and dusted. I had received this to review a while ago, but it clearly still needed some work, so I waited until now. It was actually a really good game, and definitely is one of the most Lovecraftian games out there. Although mostly a 2-D RPG adventure game with turn based grid battles, it actually has the most in common with Sunless Sea/Skies/House of Many Doors, and that style of Lovecraftian horror. In similar fashion, it doesn’t hold your hand, and the journal, while useful, is vague at times. That said, as long as you remember who you encountered and what they are about, you should have no problem finding a way to advance the story.

So, with all that said, I got about 18 hours in, and while I had quests active still, there did not seem to be a way to actually conclude them, and this bore out as fact once I reached the ending, which almost definitely is about where the devs likely initially planned to be about the halfway point. So….the game is finished, but also glaringly unfinished. Or rather, the game wraps up, but definitely doesn’t actually conclude the story or even some of the quests (from what I can tell, and in looking at the forum, it does seem to be the case.

For a Lovecraft fan, you definitely still get a full game experience, and so it is worth a look, but I do think it would be better had on sale, especially considering that the promise of the game is only about half filled.

I should also be wrapping up Days Gone this weekend.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is done and dusted on the PS4. Pretty fun game. I liked Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 better, but what Contracts really does is (mostly) focuses on the actual gameplay mechanics, namely that sweet sweet sniping mechanic CI Games has built that is hands down the best in gaming…and stealth. You can definitely run and gun if you so choose, but given the focus of the game, stealth factors in more prominently. It’s inevitable that you’ll have to fend off some close up baddies with your machine gun or pistol, but with proper planning, you can also go with sniping almost exclusively, and can actually even keep your runs bloodless (outside of your bounty targets and mission targets of course) should you desire. This game really takes a page from Killzone Mercenaries, a title you might have played if you own a Vita, inasmuch as each mission is more a self contained set of contracts and goals, despite being part of the overarching story, such as it is. Speaking of which, the story is more a side note to the gameplay. There is enough there to keep things interesting, and the setting itself is pretty cool, but mostly, it is an enhancement rather than the main flavor. Graphics are top tier, or close enough to it. Kill animations aren’t as insane as in the Sniper series, but they are still pretty cool nonetheless, and where the Sniper series focuses on the kills themselves, Sniper Ghost Warrior pays more attention to the bullet itself. Anyway, there is a lot of replay value trying to hit all your optional goals and exploring new ways to travel the maps, etc…

I’m also probably 75-80% of the way through Days Gone, but after what is probably somewhere around 60 hours already, I kind of needed a break. That said, Days Gone is kind of the Yin to Dying Light’s Yang. Where Dying Light features the superior gameplay (Days Gone features a more Far Cry style of gameplay overall), Days Gone definitely features the superior story. Both are excellent games, and I would rate them similarly. Anyway, probably another 20ish hours left to go.

Also started Pilgrims, which is a hugely quirky point and click game with a fairly unique way of using cards instead of inventory slots for necessary items. Not really sure how much more I have left to go, but I’d guess I’m between a third and halfway through ATM.

I have RDR2 queued up next, along with ISLANDERS and a couple other games, but I am kind of waiting on RDR2 until after I upgrade my rig end of this month beginning of next. So maybe I’ll see about playing through my winter sale purchases and other gifts first.

Well, I’ve played a lot of games this past year, and finished less. Currently am in the middle of Days Gone on the PS4, Dauntless on Epic, and waiting for my rig upgrade at the end of the month to fire up RDR2. Also will probably play more WW Z during this stretch, and likely a couple Indies as well.

The Outer Worlds (Epic)
World War Z (Epic)
Iratus: Lord of the Dead (Steam)
Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest (Steam)

Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest is done and dusted. It was a fun turn based tactical combat game ala XCOM, but with a fantasy setting, a somewhat campy story, some nice graphics, and just a cool all around vibe. Nice party based system with some really cool abilities and some nice maps. Took about 15 hours to finish all available quests. Definitely recommended for fans of the genre.

Iratus: Lord of the Dead is done and dusted. It’s in early access, and while it already can be played as a full game, it definitely will benefit from a bit more polish and maybe some tweaks here and there; plus, it could use a more complete ending. That said, still a good time to be had ATM. Kind of reverse Darkest Dungeon. The same mechanics apply overall, only you play as the monsters (undead in this case), and cause stress and suffering amongst the humans lol. I enjoyed it and will definitely revisit it once it leaves early access.

I’ll probably take a look at the new DLC for Deep Sky Derelicts next, then go from there.

….and World War Z is done and dusted. The co-op campaign is broken up into four individual city episodes, and each episode by three or four chapters (I might have episodes and chapters reversed lol). If you have ever played L4D1/2, Vermintide 1/2, etc…then you will be familiar with this format. There doesn’t seem to be a ton of people playing at any given moment, but there are always enough to run through a few chapters at the least during any sitting. the multiplayer modes on the other hand ARE completely dead. I never did find a game in MP. But, co-op is the star anyway, so I don’t really mind. Hopefully, the devs build off of what they started here. There is so much room for additional co-op stuff.

As far as gameplay, it’s tight. Gunplay is spot on, and there is a decent amount of versatility and upgradeable-ness for each type of weapon, and there are a decent amount of types of weapons lol. You can also upgrade your player of course, and there are a few classes to choose from. Sometimes, depending on lag, you might get a minute amount of rubber banding, and the game did crash on me once, but other than that, it was a pretty seamless experience.

Thought I’d take a moment to update my retired list:

Devil May Cry 5: Actually, this is legitimately the best DMC I’ve played (obviously IMO). The thing is, I don’t love this type of gameplay anymore it seems, and by about the two hour mark, I found myself kind of dreading going back. Really is a case of, “It’s not you, it’s me” lol. That said, this one is definitely much cringier than past DMCs, and maybe that also helped to sour me on the experience a bit.

killer7: Such a cool idea, and actually a decent application of the idea, but also insanely cringy, and kind of boring as well. After 8 or 10 hours, I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Knights of Tartarus: Well, continuing with the running theme, this also is a quality game that I just didn’t find myself enjoying. Really, the main point of contention I have with this game is a lot of wandering around aimlessly trying to find the next thing you’re supposed to do. It is helping me to tighten up my gaming habits though lol.

Neo Cab: I actually will probably play a little longer so I have enough material to properly review this game (it’s a game I received specifically to review). That said, I won’t finish it almost certainly. It is sooooooo boring and so sterile. A far cry from the promise the game seemed to have pre release.

The Secrets of the Forest: I spent more time waiting for this game to actually load than the game’s actual average playtime. I got tired of waiting. It never did actually open up for me lol.

Dead in Vinland: I got to right around the halfway point based on the map. It’s a lot of fun IMO from the camp management and exploration and combat standpoint. All of those aspects checked off positive boxes for me. However, the nightly dialogue between characters was pretty unbearable, and so when I made a mistake that caused me to really need to go back like 10-12 days (in game) to repair (and I wasn’t able to progress further as things were), I realized I just did not want to go any further having to deal with the story, which is pretty integral to the game. Just could not deal with the constant whining from what were supposed to be Vikings (or at least well invested in being a Viking as the case was with some of the characters).

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap: IDK. Felt kind of listless to me which is sad since I think very highly of the publisher and the series in general.

Rage 2: Actually, IDK if I’m really retiring it, or am simply going to wait until I upgrade my rig next month, but as things stand right now, it won’t run.

Wolfenstein 2: see Rage 2

Devil’s Hunt: Hello. 6th Generation wants its game back. Washed out, janky as hell, and generally an unfun and slower version of what DMC and Hellgate would be mashed together. At least as far as I played it.

Haimrik: Just kind of got tired of the….ummm….wordplay. :)

Honestly, for the most part, these games would be easy recommendations for people. Just not my cup of tea for various reasons.

Anyway, currently on the last city on my first full run of World War Z, which for me, is a significantly more fun version of that classic L4D 1/2 gameplay. definitely more fun than the Vermintides. Really enjoying it. I also have started Hypnospace Outlaw, will be giving The friends of Ringo Ishikawa one final look before deciding if I want to retire that one, PC Building Simulator, Iratus: Lord of the Dead (really enjoying this one so far), and My Time at Portia.

The Outer Worlds is done and dusted. Really excellent game that is both hilarious and topical as well. Definitely a great way to follow up on the New Vegas type gameplay and story telling, but upgraded significantly, and with a cool sci-fi setting and really sweet graphics. I think I took around 38 hours to play through it, and I only left two side quests unfinished. Definitely got the good guy ending, pretty much all around (except for the Board anyway lol). I was also pleased with the Epic client. For one, when you download a game, it is ready to play, quite unlike Steam where you still have a two or three step process while loading a game the first time. For two, it uses less memory. Anyway, The Outer Worlds is definitely worth playing.

Crying Suns is done and dusted. The game has three endings, but also chapter select, so there is that. Anyway, it was a pretty decent sci-fi roguelike turn based grid combat game with some hands off exploration and combat as well. Plenty of RPG elements as well. I thought it was fun, and when I finished it, I was just ready for it to be finished, so that was nice. Anyway, worth taking a look at.
