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.

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 2024

  • get my SG win played percentage up to 60% (it took a nosedive during the holiday season again due to some crazy friends) at 57,72% atm
  • playing the same amount of games that I get (sucked misserably on that account in 2023)
  • wrangle my backlog into submission and make him stop screaming 😱

Update 133: June 2024

I made it to Denver yay Currently sitting in my friends living room, cuddling with their cats, watching NCIS and writing this here. Have had a lot of fun in the past week and it is great to finally meet all of my online friends IRL.

Loved all the little puzzles, some where rather tricky. Also loved how they were introduced and gradually became harder. Just once ran into a bug where near the end one of the robots was "dead" and would not do it's part. Had to redo a whole section of the game.

Liked the game. Some of the dialoge could have been a lot shorter though. Not a fan of having to press buttons for 20 min just to advance through some talking and there is no way to skip it. Also some grinding might be required to get some of the bosses. I found I had to go back to earlier dungeons to collect enough food, to be able to fight the bosses, which was a bit annoying. You can't buy food

You have a collection of 5 popular games, but none of them really good:

Mahjong : very weird version of Mahjong that ends in the middle of play after some timer runs out
Pirate Solitaire : suits are all wrong here, took me a while to find out how to play it
Bayou Words : kinda like scrabble, once the timer runs out you see your score but you don't see the words you have missed

Loved the game overall, some of the quests get quiet repetitive. Some of the tasks could be better explained, there were some Merlin trials I had to look up what to do cause it did not make any sense to me. And all the extra collectibles all over the map get quiet annoying since you have to stop every few meters to get some other collectible thing done. And you will be constantly casting revelio to see where the collectibles or anything important is. But overall it is a great game and I will definitely go back to the game to mop up the rest of the cheevos.

A near little puzzle game with a raunchy theme. Could explain better that you have to play the vanilla version to get all the cheevos and some of the cheevos are RNG based, aka they need specific traits to happen, so you either will play a lot of unnessesary levels or reload a lot.

Ideal for anyone who has a cleaning obsession or loves order. Sometimes the placement of things doesn't make sense (why should it be placed under the bed) or it's not clear what it should be and where to put it. The initial levels are fun, but later in the game you have to organize a whole house over several floors and the game gets a bit long-winded. Could have been a bit shorter. Was overall fun though.

What can I say about this game. Has very negative reviews in the Steam store and after playing it I can understand some of them. Try not to play the game with mouse and keyboard. In my experience it is almost impossible. It works with a controller, but it's no walk in the park either. You have to climb up giant Ravenii, huge titan-like monsters that try to kill you and the civilians around you and destroy the city, while swarms of small monsters try to kill you too. Depending on the level, you either have to kill these Ravenii (by decapitation) or you have to save civilians or the city. Some of the levels are randomly generated, some have fixed objectives. To be able to decapitate Ravenii you have to fill up your meter by saving civilians or killing small monsters or smashing armor on the Ravenii. Only then will you be able to decapitate the Ravenii. The levels with a time limit are the worst. I got stuck on them a few times

Normally I'm not a big fan of trivia games because they're either impossible because they're too hard (too focused on a specific theme) or too easy. This one has just the right mix. You can choose between different themes and game modes or a mixture of everything. The devs are very proactive and are constantly developing new modes and theme categories. If it continues like this it will be a very good game

How is it already 2024? 2023 went by so quickly. I met a few of my twitch friends IRL, which was amazing. Made some great memeories. And I am struggeling with my backlog. What else is new XD

In the last year I've completed 62 games and beaten 54 games. That's a total of 116 retired games, a few more than last year.

For SG wins I went from 42,19% of unfinished or never touched wins to 42,28% (a rise of 0,09%, was hoping for a drop -_- guess I played too much backlog). And for the overall backlog from 62.8% of unfinished or never touched games to 59,06% (a 3.74% drop, which is better than last year by 0.01%), It is progress, I guess. Since I've beaten/completed so many games I am not gonna list them all. Too much work XD

This was actually more fun, than I thought it would be, though I would not wish to complete it. The physics are too janky for that.

Pretty cute game about someone moving out into the wilderness and mushing their way to their new home. Took me a while to understand that you were supposed to fail until you found enough stuff to actually make it. It has cute dogs that you can pet.

Enjoyed this a lot more than the first game, though the end game could have been less repetative. Game gets pretty dark in places.

Found this one a bit confusing, some of the chapters were nice, some of them were very strange.

I liked the game overall, but I hated things like opening the boxes. That system was just a pain in the ass.

This whole game was just a pain in the ass. The whole controls are just effed. That might be what some people like, I definitely did not. Though it is quiet funny but also very frustrating.

I actually found this quiet a good game. Sadly most achviements can only be obtained in coop modes. It takes some getting used to how your Biped moves but after that it is quiet fun.

Yosumin!

Overall this game is quiet fun. But the fact that you have to play thorugh several stages before it gets saved is annoying. Also that hitting escape will basically crash/close the game instead of pause it is annoying af. Lost a lot of progress by accidentially hitting escape a few times when trying to pause the game.

A cute little HOG, Especially like the fact that the scene got colored the second you found all cats. Made it a lot easier to locate those missing buggers.

Alice in Wonderland - a jigsaw puzzle tale

A cute little puzzle game with 12 puzzles you can do in 5 different difficulties. What I find nice about the game is the possibility to sort out the edge tiles and then the rest by upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right quarter. This makes finding the correct pieces a lot easier. Which more puzzle games had this especially for the bigger ones.

It's a little interactive fiction game about online dating during the pandemic. There are 5 different women to date. All are quiet different. Found it entertaining enough.

Toy Tinker Simulator

It could have been a great game. Instead it is very RNG and repetitive. And there are too many buttons to click, e.g. why do I have to click on every toy again after I repaired it to put it on the table, then click on it again to get the camera, click on it again to take a picture and again to get into the laptop to sell it and again to sell it. And no keyboard shortcuts available, everything has to be clicked with the mouse. And don't get me started on getting those toys for the achievements. It took me 20+ hours to get the last 10 needed toys since they simply would not appear or only one would come up every hour or so. And then you get that toy you want and the second you put it on the table it warps into a different toy…Picked out a ship to repair and once I put it on the table it turned into a dollhouse -_-

Liked it, few things I would have enjoyed a bit more:

1) there is no image except where you pick the level and it is tiny. So it is really hard to complete some of them if you do not even know what you are puzzeling
2) you only have a limited amount of moves and if they run out you have to start all over again. This combined with not really knowing what you are puzzeling makes this a lot harder than it has to be.

The game itself is good, if you can overlook all the problems getting it started. And all of the graphical glitches (like exorcist spinning head Erica).

I really liked the story and how it unfolds. Not gonna talk about that though to not spoil it for anyone.

I don't know what to think about this game. Parts were enjoyable other parts not so much, like the combat for example. It is very stiff and a lot of the enemies are very OP in the beginning. Also don't like the save system. There are a lot of points to save at, but you have to reach them first and remember to save. Did try to farm stuff for crafting many times and got killed before I could save -_-
