The never ending struggle of beating the backlog.

I intend to beat all the (acceptable) games in my library. This promise has taken me way too many years and is still in progress. I don’t intend to complete games. Aiming to get 100% rate is not worth it for me. Completing the main campaign (or similar) and getting as many achievements on the way counts as beating the game for me.

Interesting concept. Game has pausing system where you can plan your actions. The idea is that you likely do something that makes the situation go really bad. Then you start using your equipment/items to solve the situation you are in. For example, teleport into group of enemies. Melee hit first, disable shields on the second and shoot him after and throw your weapon against the third one which is too far away for another melee hit.

You will die and go through multiple characters but that is alright. Game kinda forces you to retire anyway once your characters gets too good. I think the main campaign it too long though. I would have wanted more varied content as it got a bit repetitive even with different modifiers. Had fun though.

In the beginning this felt like a nice little game but the more I play it, the more tedious gameloop becomes. Perhaps I just don't get it? Felt a bit better when playing with a friend. Also, it seems many of the achievements are broken as it keeps popping them in random times.

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut

I kickstarted this so feels good to get another one down. It is kinda old school western RPG but somehow it didn't hit that hard even if I enjoy the genre. Perhaps the world and lore (nuclear western) just doesn't do it for me even if Fallout felt nice? Audiovisually the budget shows (not very good) but it had its moments.


Swords & Souls: Neverseen

Click to expand

First completed game on Steam (with achievements)! It is a glorified Flash game but was surprisingly fun for its content. I kinda liked that training required the player to train and keep doing harder and harder tasks to get better. It actually felt a bit like improving yourself and not just increasing numbers. Last couple achievements were a chore but easy/certain enough that I took the time to grind for them.

Finally done with this. I kickstarted this game so took a while to actually finish the campaign. Stopped playing it for years. Came back couple times and now squeezed it through. It is a solid game from niche genre I don't like. RNG has too much impact and the difficulty is purely artificial. Game is as hard as an idle clicker. There is no game over in this game. You cannot fail. Losing just means more hours to grind timer. Once that psychological illusion vanishes, game becomes mind numbingly tedious. You just want to get it over but enemy gets two criticals in row and kills one of your heroes. Now you have to spend hours to grind another max level hero. Fun maximized.


Majesty 2 Collection

29.1 hours, no achievements

Click to expand

Completed the main campaign but not touching the additional ones. Gameplay is pretty hard. You cannot directly control your units but place instead markers and they either accept it or not (you can affect likelihood by increasing bounty on marker). Most of the missions are actually hard-ish because of either this passive control mechanism or game's age. It has FPS related bug which causes enemies to spawn at much higher rate on modern computers. Found luckily some fixing later on campaign for that.

Game difficulty goes wonky on this one. To my understanding it does dynamic alteration based on how well you are progressing, which in paper sounds good, but in reality sucks. This means that the game punishes you for excellent results which feels underwhelming. Also, some of the achievements were broken and did not trigger.
