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 (right now I am at at least 1 each week), 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 year). 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).

What I want to achieve in 2020

  • get my SG win played percentage up to 75% (it took a nosedive during the holiday season)
  • wrangle my backlog into submission and make him stop screaming 😱

Update 60: First week of July

First week of June or more the first 12 days of June are over and my backlog suffered a bit under the steam sale, but not too bad if you ignore the 50+DLC’s for PPU I got XD Vacation is soon over and I need to get some more games under my belt before that happens ;)

It's supposed to be a pinball game, though if you are expecting a real pinball game you will be disappointed. The flippers are not reacting like they would in a normal game There are better games out there.

I liked the game as a whole and the different minigames. Wasn't a big fan of the keybindings though and they could not be reset and the controller was not really recognized other than being able to hit pause.

I got frustrated by this game. The killer appears suddenly right on top of you and you have to do lots of backtracking to find where to go and the map does not really show dead ends and stuff. Part of it is also kinda like a maze where you will get teleported to a completely different part of the map. Could have been great :(

When I started this game I knew what was getting into. A long ARPG, kinda grindy in some places. And that is exactly what I got. I could have done without some of the bugs, like getting stuck behind mountains, not able to move any longer or getting stuck when teleporting, e.g. being able to teleport back to the city but when trying to get back to where I came from I could not move so i had to teleport back to the city again and fight through all the monsters again to get where I was. Sometimes quests would not pop or doors would just not open, if you were lucky a reload would fix that. When you were unlucky it did not and you had to reload an earlier save, if you were lucky enough to have made a copy of that.

I really like this VN. You are a criminal justice student that solves cases. The puzzles are nice, not too easy and not too hard. Getting all achievements is a hazzle though since you have no walkthroughs and the achievments discription does not help much. The translation is really good for a Chinese VN. One other sad point is that you can only play 2 cases. The third is locked behind a DLC.

The match 3 part of the game works well and the levels have different difficulties. What annoyed me to no end was the fact that in windowed mode the game got stuck in the middle of the screen and you could not move it.

Also the game seems kinda brocken since it repeats the same levels over and over again in level 4. It's supposed to have a max of 72 levels and I was at over 60 in stage 4 alone…
You have to collect certain parts and it would just not give me the levels to collect the needed parts. After playing over 50 stages of getting the incorrect levels I gave up.

I love this game. If you are into farming games, that you can play together with friends I can definitely recommend this.

You are basically building your farm from a one plot small farm into this huge thing with several fields where you can plant all fruits and veggies imaginable, you can plant flowers and trees, have animals of all kinds, build shops and your own houses and basically run a sucessful farm. Your friends can visit you and help you with your tasks, which are the basic harvest X amount of certain plant/animal/tree.
Then there are also the fairly regular events every few weeks, where it is actually nice if you have friends to do them with.

I really like the game. Basically you play a virus/bacteria and try to infect the whole world and then kill everyone.

It's a nice game, though some of the achievements are super hard to get because they rely on RNG events to happen. So basically the only way to get those is to save at certain times and reload the savepoints if you did not get the events.
I will definitly get back to it though. Just after playing it for a few days straight I needed a break.

It was an okay point'n'click, tough I liked Silence better overall. I found Sadwick to be too whiny. And I also liked Spot better in Silence. Gameplay wise I cannot really complain, though the way how you could select something was a bit cringy as well as the achievement to have Spot change form 500 times. Really? I am not sure why devs think it is a good idea to put such grindy achievments in games.

I had great fun playing this game with some friends (thanks MouseWithBeer, PV and Jip). We started out to play a bit and ended up playing for nearly 9 hours. RIP Saturday.
It is a fun puzzle game, though I am not sure how you are supposed to do some of those puzzles alone.
I was lucky enough to have people with me that actually have played the game more than once before so they gave me great tips on how to move, which is not an easy feat in this game. You basically look like you are drunk all the time or doing the macarena XD

If you have the possibility, play it with some friends. It is great fun. I will probably get back to it again. Just to get some more achievements ;)

This was just not my kind of story. On the surface it seems like an innocent story, but especially with the ending it gets a lot darker, overall I found it kind of akward. And some of the achievements are just meh. I mean why make you search for dew drops that are barely visible most of the time.
If you are into point'n'clicks it is a solid game.

Found the first game better. Here I was stuck a lot of the time, having to upload irrelevant data to progress. The story did not grip me like the first time around and I was not a fan of the two new features. It was hard to find the correct terms for the search bars, so basically just dragging various possible terms on them over and over again, until you find the right one. Also the dragging of the datachunks did only sometimes work. I nearly got stuck on episode two because I did not upload a picture that had a phone number in the background.
And then you have the 3rd episode where they introduce "The Influencer" a completely new feature, where you can influence the people with either truth or lies via social media. I will not understand why this feature was only introduced in the last chapter of the game shrug

Therefore they take part in an idol contest. Both of them seperately are not going far, but with the help of the "hero" they form an idol duo and together they make it through the preliminaries.

And on the love front you have 3 different romances.
Voice acting (Japanese) and music was nice. Took me longer then the HLTB time to complete though.

Not sure how I should feel about this game. It was a pure gorefest. I mean it starts with you dropping into a pool of blood in the first 5 minutes of the game. And it will get more gory the longer it goes on.
I would not really class it as horror, more like a disturbed version of realtiy. Tough you get chased around by "zombies" with chainsaws a time or two ;)
Story wise I am still not really sure what it is about. It is all rather convoluted. Basically you are a detectivve that was called into a horrible murder scene in a mental hospital. All of the previously send cops have been killed and you are there to investigate why. Turns out a mentally unstable person is using an experimental machine that connects peoples minds and you are pulled into it and are trying to get out and trying to keep that mental patient in. The scenes are totally fractured and weird. Sometimes you are traversing the city, then a village, then the hospital again.

Gameplay wise I found some of the level bosses rather hard. Not because they were hard to beat, more because it was hard to find out how to beat them. Once you knew how to beat them it was pretty easy.2 Though the final endboss was a joke difficulty wise. It was harder to get to him then beat him.

It's an okay HOG, gotten rather old. Resolution is not the best on HD screens, which makes some of the hidden object scenes quite hard. Puzzles are nice enough though. Different from the ones you usually see today.

Can't really say much about the story since I never really read the book.

Update 51: April is over and my backlog must love me

April is over and I played a shit ton of games. 11 games alone in the last week of April and 28 in total (even more if you count the 12 HOGs from the twelve pack seperately).
I reduced my unplayed/unfinished overall backlog by 2,62% and my unplayed/unfinished SG wins backlog by 4,13% in April. Well hopefully the next month will be as good for my backlog.

Half-Life 2

Liked the game. And will probably play the sequel some day. It makes you think a lot about the surveilance going on 24/7.

From the game play point of view sometimes it was a bit tricky to drag the right pieces of information to the right profile. Sometimes you have to try it a few times for it to work.

Did not find the game that scary, just mostly weird. Not a really big horror fan, maybe that's why.

This game was actually fun. Building some weird machines to achieve whatever the goal was for that level. For some I needed a guide though.

YOU DON'T KNOW JACK SPORTS

It works, that's about the only really good thing I can say about it. Only interesting if you are into US sports from the 90's. Otherwise you have not much chance of answering any of the questions. Only Couch-Coop, no online multiplayer.

YOU DON'T KNOW JACK HEADRUSH

Liked that one, was very reminding of my youth. Though probably also only interesting for people that really lived through the 90's. Only Couch-Coop, no online multiplayer.

Half-Life 2

YOU DON'T KNOW JACK MOVIES

Movies are really old, damn I am old and I even only knew a few. Mostly movies from before the 90's.
Only Couch-Coop, no online multiplayer.

TV shows in question are mostly 60-early 90's US shows, if you are not farmiliar with them don't bother with this game.
Only Couch-Coop, no online multiplayer.

Can't say much about the game. Could not get it to start.

I played it so you won't have to, pretty much gives you all the cheevos from the start. The game consist of bad handdrawn stickfigures and the whole text is Shakespear, Merchant of Venice

What you need to know about the game? BOOBS and Tentacle/Slime monsters. That's about everything that game has to offer.

Hidden Object - 12 in 1 bundle

Now that I have played the whole bundle I have to say they rank from shitty as fuck to tolerable to weird.

#6 - Paranomal Asylum - 2,5 Hrs long
Quirky infos that you can find in each location about Paranormal things. Other than that your typical medicore HOG fair.

#7 - Haunted House - 2,5 Hrs long
Liked it, you have to solve the mystery who killed the family some 18 years ago. Some of the puzzles were weird, but you can skip those after a while.
Quirky extra infos about hauntings found in symbols throughout the scenes

#8 - FBI Paranormal 2 - 1.9 Hrs long
Only a few locations which will be visited twice. Each location contains of one HOS and one puzzle. The HOS itself are not bad. They become bad though with the added time scoring thing. I play HOGs to relax, not to be scored on them.

#9 - Jekyl & Hyde - 2h long
Did not really get the story, jumped in years a lot. Did not like the HOS, a lot of nonsensical click 10 times on the screen shit to bring fog away or such bullshit.

#10 - Jack The Ripper - 2 Hr long
Simply game, though some annoying puzzles and weird questions about the murders and scenes. And the find differences in letters puzzle was annoying. End was very strange.

#11 - Bonnie & Clyde - 4,5 Hrs long
There are a some HOS in this one where even if you try really hard you won't be able to see them. Annoying Map Puzzle, that does not make any sense. Could only figure it out by trial and error. I played it for you so you don't have to. Stay far away!!!!

#12 - Frankenstein - 2,5 Hrs long
Frankenstein has cut your GF to pieces and you have to put her back together again. You get help from your GF's brain , with whom you talk. Have to visit every location multiple times.I think it was the weirdest one of the bunch.
