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. 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 11: Purchases and wins since last update

Purchases:

I also purchased the Handsome Jack Collection for under 3€ to finally complete my Borderlands 2 collection. And activated 911 Operator - Special Resources a DLC to a game I previously quite enjoyed. Need to pick it up again.

SG Wins:

So that makes 6 new games since the last new games update and I’ve already beaten/completed/abandoned 7 games this month, so that leaves me right now at -1 and the month is only halfway through happy dance

Overall backlog :

Update 10: May 2019 or I really hate myself for playing so much this month

This month I actually played 16 different games and finished most of them, yeah me!
I will sort the games according to the events I participated in:

What a fun little game. I really loved the caterpillar. A great if rather sad story about life and death. The story is really well told, great voice actors, especially the little girl. And the graphics are also really nice. The riddles are not too hard, so everyone should be able to finish it. I can totally recommend it :)

ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ Premium Edition

I would give it a 7.5/10. It's a nice enough story (sometimes a bit predictable) , graphics are good. Game play is good, if you like that sort of game. Your main character uses a staff to fight a bunch of different mechs in close combat and can also use that same staff as a long range weapon by firing projectiles/stun shots with it. As you traverse through the levels your main character parkours through the level, though you cannot fall anywhere since he can only jump at certain point where he will land savely, it is quite fun. Sometimes you have to go help the secondary character, which can be a hassel since you have to throw her to a certain upper level or further away point, which is not clearly indicated and you have to run around a bit and smash buttons for it to work.
You can "customize" your main character by earning/collecting tech globes and giving them to your secondary character for skill upgrades (weapon/fight/shield/health).
In about the last third of the game you meet a third character which will also join your little troupe by the name of Pigsy. He is a small, rotund man who only owns some long range weapons (he's the character for the DLC). He "helps" you until the end of the game.
Then we come to the DLC. The idea is nice. You see some episode of what happened before the main characters arrive. But here we come to the big problem in my opinion. Pigsy is a character for long range weapon use only (with little to no health, two hits insta death) in a world that is made for either stealthily trying to avoid enemies (not really possible with that character and its limitations) or close quarter combat (which he cannot do). Which means you die a lot. Which can get quite annoying really fast, since there is no possibility to save your progress, it gets automatically saved at some checkpoints that are not actually shown beforehand.

So I would suggest, get the game, avoid the DLC.

By the way I played the game with a controller. Not sure how it would play itself with mouse and keyboard.

Another cute point'n'click adventure that I really liked. Same as for Silence I liked the story and graphics a lot. Small tip if you want to 100% it, follow a walkthrough if you just want to play it once, since one of the achievements is that you complete the game in under 1h. If you need to check something just hit pause and the timer will pause.

On the one hand I really liked it. It reminded me of my youth and Motocross Maniacs, that I played endless hours on my gameboy (don't judge me I'm old), it played like it just in colour and with enemies. But then I crashed through a barrier and could not advance any more because I had not cleared the original target and I had to reload the game. This happened several times.
Also on some stages you get insta killed by the bosses or you drop down in some gap and die :-/ And don't get me started on accidentily flipping over and dying, when activating some switch without tapping any button except the ones to activate the flipping switch. Or the god damned ramps and flipping/jumping from one to the other.

Actually this is where I gave up. After several hours of trying to jump from one ramp to the next in one of the last levels I just had it. The special skills you needed to make the jump only worked every once in a while and never when I needed them :(

Nice little game with interesting game physics. Unfortunatley my natural screen resolution is 1980x1080 and for the life of me I could not get the game to run on that resolution. The whole screen was off, even though according to the settings it should work. it was so bad that I could not even start the game since the whole screen was somehow moved and was blocking the button. I had to kill the programm to get out.
Set it to a different resolution and the problem went away.

Didn't finish the game in May (played a bit more in June and am at the last level, but stuck because the physics are totally reversed for the last level).

Challenge me until May 15th

Game with a really nice atmosphere and really interesting gameplay. The shadow parts are an interesting change from normal game play, but sometimes it gets really annoying, because the riddles are sometimes a bit hard, mostly due to having to figure out how to place stuff correctly, so that you can use the shadows and you can miss some things without a walkthrough if you are going for 100%

Nice addition to the series. First time I ever got stuck on levels. A bit stupid that you can get stuck and the game does not notice it by ending the game.

What changed to the previous ones: Now you have the possibility to get big caches of food and other stuff. And your char needs to water the plants first before you can get any fruits.

It’s official, I still hate QTE and this game is full of it. Had to switch back to the older version because in the newer version a lot of times the QTE commands were not recognized so you failed the tests :(

Overall the gameplay and story was interesting, but the QTE's were really annoying. If you hate QTE like me, it might not be the best game for you.

Challenge me until June 15th

Fun game. Kind of reminded me of Borderlands 2, which I recently played too, but only in the regard that you drive around in a car/buggie and that you shoot stuff. Liked the different weapon choices a lot, though after a while I only used the sniper rifle and the shoutgun.mNot much else to say about it.

A bunch of girls on a star ship, most of them abducted from their previous life with no way back. During the game they decide to get mostly nacked several times.
One of the things I did not particularly likes was that sometime what was said and what was shown were complete oposites. Stuff like people were upset and the picture was of a smiling person.
Overall it was ok.

I really like this one, though I'm not even halfway through. 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.
Also it is a game with the longest prologue I've ever seen. Reached the prologues end at around 5 h of constant reading.

I really liked this one. Did not finish it in May, but finished it a few days ago. You can choose to play either as male or female (you have to do both if you want to 100% as far as I know) and you have a lot more choices to make than in a normal VN, for example you can explore the space ship or choose to fly somewhere with it to visit planets, other ships etc.

With only 6 new additions in May and 13 games either beaten/completed or abandoned, that leaves my backlog happy. Meaning -7

Update 9: Purchases since last update

This will be a rather short update. I did not purchase anything since the last update. I just was gifted 1 game and won 2 others on SG.

Gift:

SG wins:

So that would be a +3 on my library. But at the same time I already finished a bunch of games. Beaten 4 games and completed 5 others. And I’m on my way to complete two more.

So that means so far I’m at -6 for this month so far. Yeah me! First time that I actually make a dent in my games.

What can I say about this one… It’s a bit like the movie groundhog day, but a lot of fun. Beaten all stories. Last achievement though is a pain in the ***. You have to learn every possible skill in all levels. Problem: you only get 1 skill point for each level and by the end of the story you are at least 7-10 levels short. Each level needs about 30k exp. The max exp you can get for a level is about 10k if you hit the correct combos and you have to replay the same 5-10min of the game over and over again for several hours. Other than the grinding for the last achievement I really liked the game. Still missing the last achievement. Need another 4 levels, but have not found the time yet.

Great game. Played through it in a day. It's basically a gem matching game, with puzzle and fighter elements. Your char tries to enter the Battle Chef Brigade. In order to do so you have to challenge other chefs to battles. You have to use ingredients that you get by killing monsters and then cooking them up into a dish (that's the gem matching part) that the judges will enjoy better than your opponents.
The game also has a really nice story. I enjoyed it a lot.

Wow. What a game. Nearly 50 hours in and I'm only in chapter 8. Well I kind of get lost in the side missions and mini games. I will definitely play more of it this month.

So I played 5 games in April of which I finished 3, abandoned 1 and am still playing the last one.

Unfortunately my backlog grew quite a bit. Again…I activated a bunch of old keys, won some GA’s and was gifted two games by really nice people (thank you Iocaio and Oppenh4imer).

Thanks Oppenh4imer :)

Thanks Iocaio :)

Update 7: Wins and purchases since last Update

Purchases:

And the Tropico Trilogy, which consists off Tropico 1-3 to finish my Tropico collection.

So far I’ve beaten 3 games (Stories: The Path of Destinies (still working on that last achievement), Hacknet and Battle Chef Brigade) and abondoned 1 game, Observer, which is definetly not for people with a seisure disorder. Too many flashing lights in the “nightmare/mind” scenes for my taste.

Right now I’m playing Yakuza 0. 10 hours in and I enjoy myself a lot :)

Update 6: Games I played in March 2019

First the “good” news: Only 1 more game won and no new purchases since the last update, but I activated two older keys :-/

New win :

  • Grand Theft Auto III
    Grand Theft Auto III

    0.0 hours playtime

    no achievements

Redeemed older keys:

So this puts me at a total of 16 wins/new purchases/old keys redeemed this month and I completed/beaten 5 games this month + 1 I won’t be playing again anytime soon (too boring) and 1 that I’m still trying to beat. So this still leaves me with a +10 for this months backlog. Could have been worse :-/

Now to the games I played this month:

Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock

The only game I completed this month. A good point-and-click adventure with a nice Sci-fi story. It's on the shorter side, but that's not necessarily bad. The puzzles are not too hard and if you get stuck you can get help from your Captain.

Did the following games for Play or Pay:

Liked it a lot. I played it with a controller and some of the precision shots are nearly impossible to do with controller. I had to use the mouse for this. Other then that I had a lot of fun with it. Some of the QET were also not too easy, but with enough patience I solved all.

All in all a really good month game wise.

Update 5: Purchases and wins for the last month

I’ve decided to split the posts since they got too long XD
So from now on I will make one post at the end of the month with all my beaten/completed games and what I thought about them and one post in the middle of the month with new purchases and wins from the previous month up to that date.

This post will be about the purchases/wins starting from March 1st until today (since I did the wins for last month already).

My steamgift wins:

5 wins so far. Seems to be a good month :)

About the wins:
Silence: I was interested in this game for some time and will probably play this next month.
Solitaire Club: A nice little card game.
Age of Wonders III: Tried to win this for some time. Looks like a nice strategy game, which I like very much.
Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack: Couldn’t have come at a better time, since I’m playing Borderlands2 right now :)
Breach: Took part in this GA impulsively. Liked the trailer, so we’ll see what I think about it.

Other purchases (Humble,Fanatical,Steam):

So this makes 13 new purchases/wins for this month and I’ve beaten/completed 3 games so far and working on the 4th. So unfortunately for this month my backlog seems to grow by at least +10 new games. I’ll keep you posted XD

Update 4 : February 2019

This Visual Novel is one of the worst games I've ever played. Basically just some text that you have to read and that's it. The story is not really interesting and the visuals are mostly consisting of a few backgrounds where the text is diplayed. If you reach the end all achievements are given at once.

I absolutely not recommend this game.

I had to play two Playing Appreciated wins this month. I enjoyed both mostly:

I really enjoyed this game. I played through all the campains. They are all different enough so that it does not get boring. It can take a bit getting used to that you cannot control your heroes, but the concept is really interesting. You have to plant flags and give money to the flags in order to attract the heroes.

This game is full of glitches. Walls where you can walk through, rails that do not hold you, the camera is glitchy too. I fell over the edges so many times, it isn't funny anymore. Maybe I'm just too old to enjoy a game like this. I remember playing Sonic on the Dreamcast when I was a child and I really enjoyed it. Maybe my expectations have just grown and I want more from a game nowadays.

I stopped playing when I reached the end boss and could not finish one round of attacks and always fell down.

I also played all my Play or Pay choices:

The Painscreek Killings

The Painscreek Killings

10/10
14.4 hours
33 of 33 achievements

I really liked the game, though keeping your own notebook is greatly advised. Otherwise, you will definitely loose track of some clues.

The game basically consists of walking through the abandoned town of Painscreek and trying to find clues on who killed a woman five years prior. You will find that out by finding keys, newsletter articles and diaries of all the people involved (and there are a lot of people involved, so definitely keep your own notes). Some riddles are easy others are more difficult, but if you get stuck, simply visit the discussion forums on steam. You will get help there.

Some things I didn't really like:

  • The music is on an endless loop and to be honest after several hours it is nerve wracking. Some variety would be better.
  • You keep an ingame journal (and a camera), but nothing that can keep track of all the different people. Would have been great if something like a character tree would have been implemented or an option to keep your own notes ingame
  • Why are packed cartons in every house? If the inhabitants left, why did they not take their stuff with them. I can understand it that you might leave a thing or two, but it looked more like people were evacuated then if they actually simply had left the town.

I'm a bit on the fence about the ending. It was completely different to the rest of the game.

Yooka-Laylee

It's a decent platformer, though the camera is glitchy at least on PC. This makes gameplay really hard sometimes. Also the open world concept was not really my cup of tea. There is no real red line to follow and in order to find everything it takes ages. Sometimes the challenges to get the pagies are easy as cake and others are so hard that it took me 30 minutes just for one little pagie and for some I've simply given up. Also the Kartos mine cart challenge in world 4 is crazy and you have to defeat it in order for the boss to appear.
It took me also 6 hours to defeat the final boss. It has 4 stages and if you die you have to start all over again. A savepoint after the third stage would have been really helpful.

Other games I finished :

I'm a fan of games like this and this one was really great. The game consists of different game modes in eleven stages. A normal mode, where you have to dismantle the queue, a puzzle mode, where you have to dismantle the queues with a certain number of stones, a mode, where the queues grow again and again and you have to dismantle a certain queue at the top, a mode, where suddenly stones appear in the path and the queue changes direction.
All these different modes bring great variety into the game. Also, the special game pieces are very nice.

    Not really fun to play.

    OK. I give up. After several tries to get out of the police station, I even watched several walkthrough videos on youtube, but for some reason it did not work like in the videos, I finally get out of there, just to end up in some caves. I can't get out of the caves, since the exit is blocked by a monster, that you can not sneak past (believe me I tried and it will kill you every time). So you have to kill that thing, problem though I don't have any ammo and I checked every spot where ammo should be, but none is to be found.

    So after running around for half an hour in a dark cave I give up :(

    Game is not really fun to play. Too frustrating in my opinion. Controlls also lack, they are too clunky. If you are not standing in exactly the right angle in front of an object you won't be able to interact. Can make gameplay quite frustrating.

    Game is a solid Ego-Shooter though I was anoyed by some of the bugs I encountered, like the audio bug, where the audio gets so distored that you cannot hear anything anymore. And I also ran into a bug where in the second to last mission I couldn't trigger the shot from the space station. Had to reload the game to fix it. If you can live with that then the game is ok. Have not tried the multiplayer though.

    Liked the game a lot. The story is quiet gripping and you feel with the characters. One thing I could not quiet get into were the quick time events. I never liked them in the past and could not really get behind them for this game.

    Another thing that sometimes made me scream at my laptop were the dumb decisions made by the main character, like going out without a weapon in a world full of walkers or taking a small kid with him into an unknown location that could be teeming with walkers. That's just stupid and after several months living in this reality they should not make the same stupid mistakes over and over again. It reminded me a bit of the stupid blond chick in horror movies. But as I said overall I really liked the story. It felt like being immersed in the universe.

    Some short 5 chapters, each too short to really get into the story. I think it would have been better to just follow 1 instead of 5 stories and flesh this one out. It felt kind of like someone threw just some unfinished storyboards into the ring as a DLC. I would definitly not buy this for full prize. Otherwise it's a nice addition to a great game

Some new things like the thief who will steal your resources if you do not collect them fast enough. Or the “monsters”, e.g. Hera who will scare your workers. As promised I finished it. Another new thing are the puzzles, though I'm not sure what that is about since I never found all the puzzle pieces of one level.

    I actually like to play hidden object games from time to time, but this one was not really fun. The description of the objects to search were not really good, too ambigous most of the time, meaning that you can not find anything that you do not know what to look for. Also it was a lot of running around and it was not always clear where to go next, so it was a lot of running though the house and trying to find the next hidden object game.

    A game that I have not yet beaten, because it is not really easy is Ravva and the Cyclops Curse. I like it a lot because it reminds me of the games of my childhood that I played on NES.

    This game reminds me a lot of the old NES games I played in my youth. It is just as hard as some of them. It's a nice platformer though I strongly recommend using a gamepad for playing.

    Right now I’m playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition though I will most likely not finish the game before end of the month. I really like it, but it’s a long one. I’ll finish it then in January.
