Hi there,

what to tell about me? Hmm, well let’s see. Most of my game buys are impulse buys…Well don’t judge me. Other women buy shoes or make-up, I buy video games XD

I will try to beat as many games as I can each month, but unfortunately I’m a grown up with a job, so my progress usually depends on how much spare time I have.

I’ll try to at least beat 1 SG win + 1 backlog game each month (though I have beaten far more than that in the past few months). Since I’m a member of Playing Appreciated all wins of that group have priority (since they need to be played within a month of winning). I’m also a member of Quality Games, so any wins from that group have priority over other SG wins.


Update 24: Second week of October

Not much to report this week. I completed 1 game and won three games. And made some headway in a bunch of other games.

Really nice VN. Loved it a lot, but some of the achievements are rather stupid, like the one where you have to let the game run for several hours (12h+) and wait for them to arrive somewhere (30min sevral times and 3h) or stop sleeping (8h). Not sure why they put something like that in the game.

It's an average HOG with a nice enough story and some great puzzles, but don't get me started on some of the translations. Now I had it several times that finding something in one of the HO scences was impossible since the translation was fucked up: scale, which either means "Waage" something you can weigh with (which was used as translation) and "(Fisch-)Schuppe" (scale of a fish, which was actually what they were looking for).
The second one was spring, which they translated as "Feder" (if I hear "Feder" I think of feather which belongs to a bird, so I clicked on the feather in the picture). What they meant was the spring in a machine.
Next one according to the translation I was looking for a "Fächer", what they meant was a fan, some kind of AC unit.
That got quiet annoying, but in the end every time I could not find something I would simpy look it up in a walkthrough since using the hint function would mean I would loose an achievement, since you are not allowed to use hints for two of them.

September is over and this month my backlog did suffer a lot. In this last week I won 6 new games and bought a bunch of American Truck Simulator DLCs.

At least I was able to finish some of the long games :)

I liked the game. It is a walking simulator, where you are tasked with finding out what happened on the station Tacoma through accessing the AI recordings of the crew. I really liked the story and all the characters. Can be completed in about 3h in one runthrough.

I liked the game. Though some levels are really hard to finish.

Pros:

  • nice story
  • a lot of different missions
  • characters are well developed
  • graphis were great for their time, city really detailed, you can differentiate between the different city districts

cons:

  • graphics have not aged well, so better use the HD mod for it
  • level design is sometimes really hard, too few automated save points in hard levels
  • AI is sometimes really stupid, like your allies running directly into tommy gun fire, instead of taking cover
  • your bullets do not hit, while the enemies bullets hit every time

Played this one for the BLAEO monthly. Basically you have 4 different worlds with each 15 levels and you can get blue ribbons for completing challenges in each level. The challenges consist usually of just usuing one weapon/vigor to kill all or a certain type of enemy or finishing in a certain amount of time.

Some of those challenges are super hard to achieve, though it was fun. One thing I did not like is that if you loose one level you will automatically loose the blue ribbon for that level, even though you can start the level over again. And in order to get it you have to start over at level 1.

I love the game. It is really relaxing to drive a truck all over America. I like it so much that I actually bought all non-cosmetic DLCs.

I put it as beaten after 20+h but I will definitly keep playing it to complete it.

Update 21: Third week of September

Third week of September and my backlog did not take as much of a nose dive as last week, but it still is not pretty. 4 wins and 3 purchases, well if you leave the DLC’s in form of study guids and flash cards for Learn Japanese To Survive out.

And as the last week I’m still playing several long games. So my backlog is suffering because of that.

Wow, what a great game :) Definitly worth the money I spend. The story is engaging and I really liked the characters from the get-go. It is a stealth-adventure game that drops you in the middle of a 1349 France, riddeled with black death. You start with Amicia, the 15-year-old sister of 5-year-old Hugo, who likes her slingshot and her dog. She's out on a stroll with a dad and her dog and everything looks like a nice autum day, until it doesn't anymoe. The dog gets eaten by rats and everything takes a turn for the worse. For anyone wanting to try the game I hope you do not have a problem with rats, because you will see a whole lot of them.

Pros:

  • really beautiful landscapes and nice cut scences
  • great music
  • nice character developement: they never forget that this are children and not some battle hardend warriors, with all the little details like Hugo running away because he saw something intersting, like a lot of 5-year-olds will do. Also the side charaters are nicely developed, the kids more so than the villains.
  • encountered no bugs

Cons:

  • if you missed something on a side path/road you cannot get back most of the time since the doors simply close. This means that you will have to replay the whole chapter again for the achievement and/or material or whatever you forgot.
  • the savepoints are sometimes rather far away and you won't ever know when one comes up or not
  • you sometimes die a lot, until you know/remember every move you need to make. Also once you are spotted there is next to nothing you can do to survive.

I will definitly complete the game, though I might need a guide for the missed collectibles.

Short little point'n'click. You play two young kids (brother and sister), whose house is run over by alien monsters.

Pros:

  • short
  • funny

Cons:

  • broken achievement: last achievement can't be obtained since you would need to load a save game of a game that does not exist yet
  • missable achievements: you can save the game, but without knowing when to save you'll have to replay the whole game to get the achievements you'd missed.
  • on alien planet there are several rather long "chat" sequences, that consist of just chatting back and forth with the alien for several minutes

It is the most boring and frustrating game I have played in a while. It has nothing to do with hacking (except the weird back story) and consists entirely of badly done minigames that are nearly impossible to beat.

Pros:

  • not sure there are any
  • thought of one: you can disable the annoying music

Cons:

  • the mini games: either they are boring (hitting random keys to get some "code" that does not even make sense) or badly done versions of known games (Snake, Battleship, Breakout), which most of the times solely relies on RNG
  • bugs: had to sometimes restart the game several times to get it to load properly
  • the music: but then I do not like electronic music much

Second week of September and my backlog did take a nose dive since I activated some free games an steam and also decided I needed to win some shorter games on SG and got really lucky.

I really liked the game. So much so that I now play the DLC's, first Clash of the Clouds, then Burial at Sea.
Great range of weapons and different types of "magic" called vigors. The story is also quite nice, though a bit confusing at the beginning with the different universes and such, but it comes together nicely at the end.
I did not find the final boss fight too hard.

What a great game. I really liked every single minute I spent with it, even if some parts frustrated me a bit.

Good things:

  • graphics: for a game released 6 years ago the graphics are amazing. Really nice cutscenes.
  • boss fights: I really liked the boss fights. Most of them where challenging, though some a bit repetitive. Nice integration of the skills.

Negative things:

  • the combo system: a nice idea, but it does not work really well. Most of the times the combos do not register even though you non-stop hit them. really hard to get the long ones working correctly. Could have been a good thing if done correctly.
  • disappearing enemies: some of the leapers are only visible in direct light and can only be hit when in direct light, which is crazy since sometimes you cannot see them at all and have to fight against invisible enemies, which is frustrating.
  • memory remixes: like with the combo system, a nice idea, but badly implemented. To rewind you have to either spin the whole mouse counterclockwise or do the same with the left stick on the controller, which is a hassel if it works, but more often than not it does not work properly (either it does not rewind or wind forward at all or it jumps too far) and to find the memory glitches can be a real pain in the ass. You have to rewind and wind forward for a lond time to get all the glitches.

But as said above overall I really liked the game and can overlook the "bad" parts.

A really fun game for me. In the beginning I was a bit overwhelmed by the big, open world and I needed some time to get used to it. But I love pinball and pinball games so I really loved this one. It is a bit confusing in the beginning since you are not really told what to do in the different tables, but basically when in doubt hit everything is a good start ^_^
And if you are like me and like and are good at pinball it is not that hard to clear the tables. I can only imagine that it might get frustrating for people who are not that great at pointing the ball in the right direction.

A good story and I'm glad that I picked it up. Sometimes a bit gory, but honestly that is more in the way the fables actually were portrayed back in the day (and I know that the game is after a graphic novel and not the original fables) and not the whitewashed version that you get nowadays. I found the story engaging and actually wanted to know what was going on at every moment. Was a bit sad about the ending though.

I started playing this back in 2017 and for some reason abandoned it, even though I really liked it. So when I saw a review here a couple of days ago I was reminded of it again. Thank you Garcias for suggesting that I should pick it up for the BLAEO theme. Even though I had to dig out an old save from a nearly dead, really old PC.
It's a excellent RTS game, that lets you replay some of the World War 2 battles surrounding the D-Day in Normandy. Like in any RTS you have to build up a base camp and build up your army (which consists of anything from normal infantry soldiers up to tanks) and either capture waypoints or kill certain enemies or defend a place for some time. I finished chapters 10-15 for the challenge.

So that means that for this week I’ve beaten/completed 3 new games and have gotten 2 new ones, which means this week it’s a -1 for my backlog and overall for the August, it’s -1 in games I’ve beaten/completed to games I’ve bought and -2% in unplayed/unfinished games. So over all a great progress for one month. We’ll see how next months will go, considering that my vacation is nearly over.

Game was an okay shooter. Nothing special about it. Maybe a bit short in single player campaign. Sometimes I was a bit annoyed at the AI, because my supposed allies were constantly running into my line of fire or not really supporting me at all. But then I'm used to stupid AI. And then I'm not sure who had the brilliant idea to put collectibles in a shooter, but I was stupid enough to go looking for all 61 newspapers, even during firefights XD

Really liked the game. The game play mechanic with rewinding time is nothing new, but it is really well implemented here. Several times I had to scream at my screen when the clock automatically rewound because the day was over, but I had to just go into the next room to finish this level grr
It made me think really hard sometimes on how to prevent some of these murders without running out of time.
A bit annoying are some of the collectibles, that can only be obtained after getting some new skill for preventing the murders. This means constant backtracking.
Also I was unfortunate in that I could not save my game, since I was affected by an error that prevented the save game from actually saving. Devs were aware of the problem, but for some reason never resolved the issue and none of the provided solutions worked for me. So i had to play through the game in one sitting after loosing two save games beforehand :(

Not my kind of game. Found it boring for most of the game and honestly I found the story simplistic or even childish. Of course GREED is bad and why does the evil, evil protagonist have to work for such bad people. Simply give up your job and die because you cannot feed yourself anymore. At least that is what the game tries to tell you. Not the dying part, but it's the logical consequence.
Another thing that annoyed me about the game was having to walk around seemingly endless ways in that walking crawl, that they used. It was simply time consuming and pointless in my opinion.

Ame no Marginal -Rain Marginal-

I previously only played 6 minutes of it and I was reminded why. Ame no Marginal -Rain Marginal- is a kinetic novel, which for the most part plays in a world where it only rains. Cue here for endless panels of rain (and I mean endless, I would guess about 70-80% of the panels are just rain). This could all be made up with a great story…well in my opinion you could have done without at least 1/3 of the story since it did not give you a lot of info. Officially you have two storylines. That of the male protagonist (who never really gets fleshed out properly) and another one with Rin, a little girl that lives in the rain world (this one is slightly better).

Overall if you would have cut the story to the last 1/3 of it, which was the background to Rin, it would have been better. At least in my opinion.

Since I played this game, when it first came out, there were some new DLC's and campaigns added. Therefore I decided to play it again for the BLAEO challenge to finish unfinished games. To be honest the game became even better than before. There are a lot of new vehicles and equipment added and also new "big" events, like a music festival, an earthquake or a blizzard. Also the new "search" tasks, where you only get the approximate location of the perp/victim were new to me. Overall I spent nearly another 17h in the game to get all the needed achievements and i loved every minute of it.

So that means that for this week I’ve beaten/completed 8 games and have gotten 1 new one, which means this week it’s a -7 for my backlog and overall for the first three weeks of August, it’s +0.
So hoping I won’t cave and buy a lot more games this next week and will beat at least a few more, I might even make a dent in my backlog, even if it is a really small one.

I have now played a lot of the 7 Wonders games, but this is probably my favourite one so far. Each level consists of two stages. In the first stage you have to clear all the fields of your board of the underlying tiles. To do that you have to simply match 3 or more stones above them. Once you cleared everything, phase two will start. There will be new lines on the board and a cube will appear that needs to be brought to a certain taget. In order to do so you have to again match 3 or more stones to move the cube. Since the cube can only fall down you need to turn the whole board to the left or right in order to get it to the desired target. Of course like always there are special stones, that will get rid of a whole row or even more, that you'll get for breaking more then 4 stones, but that is the same in every match-3 game. These two phases made a real difference for me, since you had to think a lot about how you would get the cube to it's destination. I enjoyed it very much.

I've played this one for the BLAEO challenge where you should play a previously unfinished game.

I really like this one. It's a kinetic novel dealing with loss/mental health issues.
This is what makes it quite problematic to follow the storyline in the beginning since the protagonist has hallucinations and jumps between past and present and hallucinations without any delay.
This will happen throughout the whole novel, so honestly I made a spreadsheet with all the different names and people and places. Who they were, if it was past or present or hallucination, because I think otherwise I would have lost the plot several times.

I can't really write more about it without giving away the plot, but I enjoyed it very much. Otherwise I would not have sat through 30h of it XD

I also started three more games this week. Reviews will follow next week :

Really beautiful game. Quite disturbing in places. Only thing I did not really like was the fighting system. Especially the fights in the dark were not a favourite of mine. Could have done without that.
Not sure if I was asleep during the instructions, but I could not remember a single one and combat was not fun without knowing what to do and since you were dead after three hits there was not much room for experiments either.

I gave up on this game for the foreseeable future. Did not get along with that game at all. You cannot command your troops to go anywhere. You have to actually run around in front of the enemy and wave your flag so that your troops attack. Did I mention that you cannot fight at all. Just not my kind of game ¯\(ツ)
