Casual achievement hunter’s progress log #75
The month when I was always playing games. And when I started a Youtube channel for video game reviews. Ah the cringe!
Focus and Spiders both are known for clunky RPGs. This is probably one of the most polished game they've released though, which is nice.
As a sequel of Mars: War Logs, you play as a dude from the opposite faction.
Look, honestly, I find it hard to describe most things about this game, but here's what I can say.
The game's beautiful. It's jank that you can adapt to. I had a fair bit of fun, but the game has a lot of filler as well. It's a 18 hour game that has 9 hours of filler (approximately).
Oh, the review I wrote for it.
The folks are hidden and finding them is not always as fun as you might think.
Hidden Folks takes the "Where's Waldo" concept and slightly expands on it by making larger areas and making them interactable. The real issue however comes in with the visuals being monotone and everything being so cluttered. I had a headache twice during the 3 hours that I played. It kind of just abuses your eyes a lot and I just can't approve of it.
Also, the way you find some people is a bit annoying. Sometimes you have to find insanely small details hidden underneath a random cluster of same-looking clutter. So for example, you need to interact with like 20 clouds in the same place just to find some small item. It's no longer that fun type of "Do you notice the detail", instead it's more of a "Can you be bothered to click on 50 items to search them to find whatever you need."
The images are cute however and I don't regret my time with this.
Also, you need a DLC to get all of the achievements, which is genuinely just malicious business practice.
I'm surprised how great this game looks.
The gameplay's definitely a bit simple and repetitive, but I enjoyed the game regardless.
A total fucking banger of a game, honestly. Arkane's done it again! I beat the game twice, thinking I got all the content out of it, only to find out that there's a fair few things I could've also done.
Prey's totally worth it if you're like me and want an experience where you're dropped in a new setting and make you try and figure things out, turning from prey to predator in the hostile environment.
Another Tropico game. Yeah, the story's solid, but it's nowhere near as fun as Tropico 4. Regardless, it's done and I don't regret my time with it.
A great walking simulator with a decent story. Sadly, the posed mystery isn't really answered satisfyingly and so it can leave you unsatisfied. Regardless, I still recommend this game.
EDIT: The review is done. Really proud of this one!
Finally finished it! It was a lot of fun, played through it twice, in fact.
The game's ridiculously gorgeous, which makes me confused as to why games often can't reach this level still.
Yeah… I liked Metro 2033 a lot… I beat this one twice as well. :)
Though, visually it's a bit underwhelming, yet still beautiful.
EDIT: The review is done. Thanks for all the kind words so far. I'm legit shocked that people are so kind and welcoming.
Once again, 2 playthroughs. Yeah, I love Metro a lot! Basically 6 playthroughs of Metro in a month. A bit of a more simplistic entry this time. The gameplay barely evolves and the story's a total step down. Just overall, Last Light is definitely weaker than 2033. It's less interesting and compelling.
This one got me thinking enough to make me want to make a video review as well. As of now, there's 40 minutes of audio and 4000 words in the script. Even then, I held back a lot. The original plans would've made the script around 7000 words long…
Wanted to get another Steamgifts win finished. This time, it was a short one. Ferrum's Secrets is a pretty weak Point and Click game with HOG minigames. The story's really boring and uninteresting and the gameplay's pretty weak as well. I don't recommend this game almost at all.
Was gifted this a while back when I gifted the same game to my friend. But unlike him, I actually didn't really want it. So I'll be honest, I was a bit bitter about getting a gift like this. I bought it for him because he wanted it and he obviously bought it so he'd have someone to play with, not because I would be happy to get it. Regardless, a gift's a gift and I can't complain. I didn't expect anything in return, but it just didn't feel like a gift for me, instead a gift for him again.
We played the multiplayer and it was pretty boring. But I saw a story mode, so I didn't uninstall. So I finally went into it (8 months later) and I expected basically just bot matches with some basic story stuff added. Instead, it was a really fun and funny experience. An hour and a half of a legit story. No multiplayer garbage and instead this was a totally new part of the game.
EDIT: The review is done.
5.8 hours, no achievements
A Z-tier CoD wannabe. It's clunky, but it was decent enough to not make me want to die during those 6 hours.
Tropico 3: Absolute Power
52.6 hours, no achievements
Completed as part of the August Monthly Theme
GOOOOOOOOD MORNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNG TROPICOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Basically this is the less flexible father of Tropico 4. No real imports, no quick builds, no convenience. But it's still a really fun game.
Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry
4.3 hours, no achievements
It's a pretty decent Assassin's Creed IV expansion. Basically just a more compact version of the original.
Grand Theft Auto III
12.6 hours, no achievements
Basically a GTA game without the character around it. So, the story's very threadbare and also a bit uneventful. Yet, the game's still fun and entertaining.
My 2 minute long video review (I'm aware of the audio edit issue :D)
100%d!!!!!!! This marks another Bethesda game that I've 100%d! So far, I've got Fallout: New Vegas, Skyrim, Skyrim SE and now this. Sadly I don't have VR and Fallout 3 doesn't have actual achievements. Though, Fallout 3's been 100%d in-game as well.
Fallout 4 definitely made it the hardest to 100%.
Answer Knot was a fun ride. 45 minutes to tell a quick story.
