This is my main post!

----

#1 A Hat in Time – Completed 1/1/2020 PC – 8 hours
#2 Katamari Damacy: Reroll – Completed 1/1/2020 PC – 3 hours
#3 Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair – Completed 1/3/2020 PC – 10 hours
#4 Grow Home – Completed 1/4/2020 PS4 – 3 hours

A Hat in Time -- I played this entirely in co-op, and we had a blast. Shorter than I expected, and I would've liked one or two more worlds in the basegame, but it was still a top-notch 3D platformer.

Katamari Damacy: Reroll -- Please help, I have like half of this game's soundtrack stuck on loop in my head. Also - the PC port's performance was super weird. Some animations locked at 30FPS, while others were unlocked, causing quite a big disconnect across the screen. Odd stuff.

Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair -- Essentially a modern DKC-style 2.5D platformer, and I absolutely loved it. The overworld and its gimmicks were well implemented, and the changing levels was a very smart way to re-use ideas and assets between levels while still making things feel fresh. I think my one and only complaint is that the artstyle feels subdued at times. Everything else? Top notch stuff.

Grow Home -- I played through most of this in 2017 and just now remembered that I could finish this up tonight. It's definitely a very intentionally janky game, interesting little concept, but I can't say I was the biggest fan.

1. Grand Theft Auto V


Date finished: 01/12/2020
Total playtime: 66.8 hrs

Thoughts:
I can see why the game was liked so much when it released but I sincerely hate the protagonists (I guess that's the way they wanted you to feel toward them?). The gameplay was serviceable though I still hate driving cars and piloting helicopters.

2. Prey (2017)


Date finished:
02/01/2020
Total playtime: 33 hrs

Thoughts:
Prey 2017 was a great game, I think it's important to note that I never played the original Prey. I liked the enemies, the mimics kept messing with me and I felt that I never had enough items to keep surviving.

3. A Short Hike

Date Finished: 02/01/2020
Total Playtime: 1h30m

Thoughts: That was a lovely game, even though it's short I want to pass more time in the island.

4. A Hat in time

Date Finished: 03/01/2020
Total Playtime: 37h (I think I forgot to close the game at some point)

Thoughts: It's a charming 3D platformer, the camera is wonky but I was able to ignore it and in the end I enjoyed this game a lot.

5. FTL: Faster Than Light

Date Finished: 02/08/2020
Total Playtime: 45h

Thoughts: Definitely harder than Into the Breach and it feels more RNG prone but still a fantastic game.

6. Disco Elysium

Date Finished: 02/18/2020
Total Playtime: 30 hours

Thoughts: One of the best games I've played. It nails the mistery, the characters, the humor and most important the dialogue.

7. The Haunted Isle, a Frog Detective Game

Date Finished: 03/14/2020
Total Playtime: 52 minutes

Thoughts: Short, but the humor is on point.

8. Dark Souls 3

Date Finished: 04/01/2020
Total Playtime: 73h

Thoughts: I loved it so much I did not even noticed the amount of hours I've played it. Cool bosses and nice areas.

9. Dark Souls: Remastered

Date Finished:
04/19/2020
Total Playtime: 50h

Thoughts: Great game, besides some areas the level design still holds up.

10. The Messenger

Date Finished: 05/03/2020
Total Playtime: 20h

Thoughts: Pretty solid game, nice humor, good boss fights.

11. Streets of Rage 4

Date Finished: 05/09/2020
Total Playtime: Sincerely I don't remember

Thoughts: ITS A NEW STREETS OF RAGEEEEE

12. Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed Collection

Date Finished:
05/15/2020
Thoughts: I've owned this game for quite some time but besides playing the local competitive I never spent much time with the career mode. Finished it and this game still holds up after 8 years.

13. Starstruck: Prologue

Date Finished:
05/20/2020
Total playtime: 3 hours

Thoughts: This prologue just made me really excited for the full game. The mix of styles is a nice touch and the musical mini-games were a nice throwback to Guitar Hero.

14. Horace

Date Finished:
06/28/2020
Total Platime: 19h

Thoughts: It's a cinematic platformer, seriously there are a lot of cinematics on Horace. I started playing thinking it was just a platformer about a robot boy who wanted to collect 1.000.000 of things and I wasn't expecting to bond with the characters in a story that keeps going even after you think it reached it peak.

Life is Strange 2: Great improvement over the first one, I'm not really into this type of games but I enjoyed LiS 2 quite a lot, it definetly helped that I was able to play all the episodes at once since usually the waiting between episodes really turns me off. Overall 8/10 and would recommend it.

Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undertride & Hordes of the Underdark: After finishing the main game back in December I decided to play the expansions, I kinda enjoyed them (but mostly out of nostalgia) since Undertride seemed more of the same and Underdark improved some of the weaker points of the game (character development and interactions) but at the end and after more than 80 hours playing I felt that it was dragging along. They are ok if you enjoy the main fluff but the strong point in Neverwinter Nights always was the custom modules.

Through the Woods: Weak experience, a linear horror game with a lot of touches regarding nordic mythology, the characters look really rough and the landscape too but both were a little better once the nights sets in the game. Overall I can only see a person enjoying it if they are a horror fan and/or are interested in the nordic myths. Propos for trying something different with the hostile creatures in the game tho.

Cave Story+: I actually played this game back in the day and well... what can I say that hasn't been said yet. It's a really cute and enjoyable game that you can beat in a couple of days with a charming personality and characters (and I really like the designs) I think everyone should give it a look.

February

Halo Reach: It's the first Halo I play from start to finish and I enjoyed it, beated it 2 times (one in co-op) and it was fun but a bit short, definitely waiting for the rest of the Master Chief Collection to hit Steam!

Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition: Managed to beat all the old and new campaigns so I spent almost all my gaming time this month doing that, now I'll do just some achievement clean up and dive into the multiplayer again. I'm huge AoE fan and I'm already expecting the next one.

Singularity: This one was a surprise since I expected an average first person shooter but ended up enjoying it a lot, the story was interesting with some cool twists and the whole team travel and its related skills were fun to toy with, I would recommend it if you like fps but want to try something out of the ordinary.

March

Sniper Elite: The OG one, not going to lie it's getting a little bit dated but if you crank up the difficulty you still have a pretty solid ''sniper simulator'' that doesn't overstay his welcome with its length.

Chaos on Deponia: Been a while since I beated the fist Deponia and I never got around to play the sequels, well the quarantine solved that.
The game is really fun and I really enjoy the artstyle and the humor, some of the mechanics regarding Goal I found a little bit annoying but great game nonetheless.

Goodbye Deponia: Was great to see all the characters reunited for the climax and see the resolution of the story... that I didn't like very much, I found the ending kinda underwhelming but the rest of the game was as good as other Deponia games regarding the humor and the characters, great trilogy for the genre.

Resident Evil HD Remaster: This was my heavy hitter this month, I beated the game twice with Jill and another one with Chris, I probably will do another run soon. It was great seeing the mansion again and I liked the changes they made in the remaster, It's a great point of entry into the series if the original one is too dated for you.

Home is Where One Starts: I'm not a fan of walking simulators and sadly this was no exception. The game is way too short and with very little to say regarding the story, I guess it's ok if you are a fan of the genre but there are way better games over there.

Viking: Battle for Asgard: I got this for free some years ago and I finally tried, the pc version is not perfect but it's serviceable, I liked the setting but the ending felt reeeeally rushed. It's ok for some mindless hack n' slash fun, just don't expect the gameplay to change that much because each island is more or less the same, kill some bad guys, make an army, attack the fortress.

11-11 Memories Retold: I got this from a Monthly Bundle and pleasantly surprised me, WWI is kind of forgotten gaming wise and I enjoyed the setting and the fact that every character speaks in his own language, adding more immersion to the game. It's a pretty neat game that show you how the average man fighting isn't too different no matter what country he is from.

I claim this spot as mine :blobeyes:

I play games sometimes too.

1. No Man's Sky - Jan. 5
I completed the main story so consider it finished, as much as an infinite universe sandbox can ever be finished. I plan to keep playing it, but after 50+ hours I feel I get to tick it off as done.

2. Vampire: The Masquerade: Coteries of New York - Jan. 8
This was merely ok, for me. I love the setting and some of the characters were quite interesting, but I wish the ending didn't come crashing down so abruptly.

3. A Short Hike - Jan. 21
This lives up to its name. It's cute, but not something I wanted to spend any more time with after the hour it took me to finish the main "quest." I have a feeling there are tons of little things you can do to add playtime but it never grabbed me enough to make me want to keep at it.

4. Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Legacy of the First Blade - Feb. 6
Yes, it's DLC... but it took me 10 hours to complete, which is longer than some full games I've played this year so I'm counting it. I liked it overall. It's more AC, but I liked the tragic aspects of the story.

5. Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Fate of Atlantis -Feb. 16
This DLC really makes me wish Ubi would make a new, full-on open world fantasy RPG IP. There was some amazing scenery in this one. Anyway, that's my time with ACO done, 108 hours later.

6. The Supper - Feb 16
A 20 minute long point and click adventure game, by the pixel artist from Thimbleweed Park. A creepy, gorey, short story of a game. Also, it's free! If you like it you can buy an art PDF as DLC for $2 to support the creator.

7. Nordlicht - Feb. 23
A tedious point and click adventure game with a twee art style. Maybe I'm just cranky, but this did nothing except annoy me. The ending tries to get cheap feels from you, but I saw it coming within minutes of starting the game. Thankfully it's only 1.5 hours long at most. Unfortunately, most of that playtime comes from the painfully slow walking speed of the playable characters.

8. Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Apr. 6
This was a long time coming! ~85 hours, and I skipped SOOOO much side content. I liked aspects of it, though I felt no connection to the world or the story, and thought most of the characters were pretty one-note. If nothing else, it makes me super-relieved that Larian Studios is making Baldur's Gate 3 turn-based, because the number of trash fights in RTwP games is exhausting.

9. Max Gentlemen Sexy Business - June 14
This is a weird one. It's got relationship building like a visual novel, but the bulk of the game is a simple gameplay loop of building up troops/improving your executives and defeating your rivals. It's also, optionally, a porn-ish game. You can control how explicit things are, but there is full frontal nudity for both genders, though no sex acts are depicted visually.

10. Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr - June
I finally got around to playing through this DLC. It's more ESO. It definitely scratches my open world RPG itch.

11. Observation - June 8
A pretty interesting sci-fi "thriller." You control an AI that's assisting an astronaut after "sci fi stuff" happens to the space station she works on. You basically jump around the station via wall mounted cameras, doing little puzzle tasks. You also get to move around in a floating sphere at some points, which lets you move freely. The story has some pretty good moments, especially near the end, but the puzzles are not particularly interesting and traversing the station can be tedious - panning a camera is very slow and clunky, and moving around as the sphere can be disorienting and also makes an annoying compressed air sound(it sounds like someone blowing in a straw) every time you even nudge the controls.

(04/04/2020)



Pretty short and simple platformer.

Main post:

#DateTitleLength (h)CommentsRating
12020-01Aokana - Four Rhythms Across the Blue27A visual novel about not-Quidditch; high production values, good humor, and a great cast of characters made this an enjoyable experience bespite character routes being somewhat uneven and despite the main heroine basically being anti-gravity Jesus.★★★★★
22020-01The Signal From Tölva10A janky but interesing experience, with some great environements; unfortunately the pay-off just isn't there and the end of the game are little more than a "you are winner". I also spent most of the game wishing that I could run faster.★★★
32020-01My Friend Pedro4I got this for free and that was about the right price for me. The game-play quickly got repetitive, the Pedro's World levels were attrocious, and the only thing that kept me moving forward was the wacky story which really didn't pay off.★★★
42020-01SUPERHOT2The game that I stopped playing because it told me to. Fun game, but for me it didn't live up to the hype it had back in the day.★★★★
52020-01Eiyu*Senki - The World Conquest39A casual strategy game/visual novel hybrid that mainly consisted of a ton of silly humor and slice-of-life. A nice relaxing time-waster, though playing it for 9 hours straight when I thought I was just a couple of hours from the end turned out to be a mistake.★★★★
62020-01Narcissu 10th Anniversary Anthology Project13See my comments in the visual novel book club. TL;DR: A set of really impactful stories about the end of life, marred by bad translation and poor QA.★★★
72020-02Dying Light32I probably wouldn't have completed this if not for the fun that was had messing around in co-op. The story took itself way too seriously, but messing around with a friend never got old.★★★
82020-02Kara no Shojo14½A really compelling mystery VN with a great cast and a lovely soundtrack that unfortunately tried to do too much and ended up feeling like a bit of a mess once everything was revealed.★★★★
92020-02Black Mesa13½Black Mesa is a really impressive accomplishment for a modding group, but I found the game-play to be a step down from the original half-life. One exception was the beginning of Xen, which I really enjoyed, but unfortunately the rest of Xen somehow managed to be much worse than the original.★★★
102020-03Senren*Banka26Another moege by Yuzusoft and a pretty consistently good visual novel; it does not reach the highs of Sabbat of the Witch, but it also does not reach the lows of SotW, which was pretty inconsistent across routes.★★★★
112020-03Utawarerumono13½I read that since the 2nd and 3rd Utawarerumono titles had been re-released and really enjoyed it. At its core, it is just a bunch of slice-of-life scenes set between the more significant story-bits, with light tactical combat every once in a while. The main draw was the main story-line and the expansive cast of characters, who also took the center-stage in the many interstitial scenes. This was the fan-translated 18+ version, but I am confident in saying that little will be lost when the all-ages remake is released.★★★★★
122020-03Marco & The Galaxy Dragon4The demo made me very hopeful about this visual novel, but the story ended up being told at such a break-neck pace that it often felt confusing, and the sheer contrast between the slap-stick humor and the grim-dark antagonist made the latter feel out of place in the story. But art, characters, humor, and music all came together and made it an highly enjoyable experience, and made me hopeful for a sequel.★★★
132020-03OshiRabu: Waifus Over Husbandos3A short and mostly light-hearted yuri romance visual novel; it is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, nothing more and nothing less, but worth reading if that is the kind of story you are looking for.★★★★
142020-03WILL: A Wonderful World13A puzzle-game/visual novel; play the role of a god and tweak the chronology of events to bring about different, better(?) outcomes for those praying for your aid. While the puzzle-elements were weak, and often boiled down to just trying all combinations, the stories that were told through them were highly enjoyable.★★★★★
152020-03Painkiller: Black Edition10½Painkiller was not the most exciting FPS when it was first released and time has not been kind to this game; between a story that takes itself too seriously, boring weapons, repetitive and largely uninteresting enemies too many of whom do hit-scan damage, uninspired levels, poorly signposted boss mechanics, and sluggish movement (pro-tip: jumping is faster than running) the game simply does not hold up these days. I will however give a shoutout to the last level in the main game, hell itself, which is presented as a journey through the many wars of human history. The DLC adds a couple of enjoyable weapons, but otherwise suffers from the same issues.★★
162020-03DOOM Eternal22DOOM Eternal takes the very successful formula of DOOM (2016) and adds additional layers on top. On one hand the result is great, just like the previous title, but on the other hand the additions start to make the entire thing feel a bit over designed. The story also takes itself way too seriously and the game seems to be missing that charm that set DOOM (2016) apart despite its grim setting and story. It is not a bad game, far from it, it's just not quite as good as DOOM (2016).★★★★★
172020-03Eliza5A visual novel from a developer mostly known for their complex puzzle games. It is a story that deals with AI, psychology, human interaction, and the ethical implications of intrusive technologies, and it will probably be especially poignant to those who are interested in such technologies. Eliza is also notable for its high production values; not only is the art and writing excellently realized, the game also features very good English voice-acting.★★★★★
182020-03DOOM 64It's an old-ass DOOM, but despite being old as hell it is still very fun to play. I found it notable how just about every weapon felt more satisfying than those of Painkiller. However, later levels started to get a bit too obtuse, there were too many death-traps that could pretty much only be avoided through foreknowledge, and the final boss was straight up bullshit.★★★★
192020-04To the Moon: Holiday Minisode 2½Not much to say; it's an interesting short episode set after TtM, that hints at some things going on.★★★★
202020-04Off-Peak½A very walking simulator a strange train-station, and the people you find there. The whole thing felt akin to an art installation, but the biggest draw for me was probably the background music.★★★
212020-04Turok 2: Seeds of Evil11¼A rather uninspired FPS. Weapons were uninteresting, enemies likewise, and levels were for most part much, much too large for their own good, especially when mission objectives were hidden away in weird corners.★★
222020-04A Bewitching RevolutionA short game about communism and how you literally need magic to make it happen. Jokes aside, the game was enjoyable enough, with a nice minimalistic aesthetic, but suffered from a too heavy reliance on bits of literature to convey its messages.★★★
232020-04Seven Days12½Not to be confused with 'Seven Days with a Ghost', the VN 'Seven Days' is story about Seven Days spent with seven ghosts before their passage to the next world. Despite somewhat uneven routes it was still a very enjoyable experience, with a good mix of humor, drama, and melancholy.★★★★
242020-04Seabed13¼A fantastic yuri mystery visual novel about loss, about memories, and about what is real. See the bookclub for more comments.★★★★★
252020-04Tsukihime Plus-Disc1A short fan-disc set after Tsukihime, consisting of a new short story and some fan-service in the form of Umineko-like tea-parties. Enjoyable, but could easily be skipped.★★★
262020-05DOOM (2016)10¾Playing DOOM: Eternal and DOOM 64 gave me a hanking for more DOOM, and DOOM (2016) was the obvious choice. However, it became clear just how much Eternal improved on the formula, and I enjoyed myself less than I anticipated. While Eternal did get a bit kitchen-sinky, its improvements to the movement system, tighter balance, and improved controls in specific areas were sorely missed. However, I still found the more story-telling to be vastly better in 2016, with a much clearer sense of your goal and less need to consult the codex to understand what the heck is going on.★★★★
272020-05Hatsukoi 1/138½An infamously long romance visual novel, made to feel longer by the slow moving plot and what is probably the most dense protagonist I have ever seen. Despite that there was a lot to enjoy about the game and I did not regret my time spent reading it.★★★★
282020-05Moons of MadnessA decent to good Lovecraftian horror game. It has some neat ideas, but also suffers from going all-out too early (leaving little in the way of dreadful anticipation),from chase scenes are that rendered almost comical by the movement speed of the protagonist that barely amounts to a slow jog, and from less than enjoyable stealth segments.★★★★
292020-05YOU and ME and HER (Totono)A visual novel with a twist. Experience with the medium is recommended, since it relies on the player having a familiarity with common visual novel tropes.★★★★
302020-05Dying Light: The Following18¼A follow-up to Dying Light, it was about as entertaining as the original when played in co-op, meaning that most of the fun came from messing around, and the vast distances that you had to drive became something of a chore. Kabooom!★★★
312020-05LAMUNATION -international-A comedy visual novel written by a Japanese guy obsessed with western media. While there were a lot of funny jokes, there were even more that simply fell flat. Too many gags involved a couple of characters speaking, followed up by the narrator summarizing what whacky thing then happened, something that should probably have been shown, not told, 9 times out of 10.★★☆
322020-05Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive EditionAn incredibly pretty game that fell utterly flat for me. There was no emotional impact (except for the birbs), there was a too heavy reliance on long, check-point less segments to add challenge, and the poor differentiation (and even overlap) between foreground, background, and threats made for frequent frustration.★★★
332020-05Dies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey~6A short prequel to Dies Irae, Interview manages to capture the best parts about Dies Irae (the great presentation, the larger than life characters, and the sheer absurdity of its rule-of-cool background) while avoiding the poor pacing that plagued the original game.★★★★
342020-05ENIGMA:A fantastic mystery visual novel that ended earlier than I would have liked, despite it fitting the theme of the game; see my comments in the book club thread for more.★★★★
352020-06Blood: Fresh Supply10½Edgy the shooter. While I had pretty much experienced all the game had to offer after the first hour or two, the game remained decently entertaining all the way through.★★★★
362020-06Helltaker2A free and light puzzle-game with funny writing, great music, and pancakes.★★★★★
372020-06G-Senjou no Maou - The Devil on G-String21A fantastic read, my enjoyment of which was only dampened by a twist that felt contrary to earlier parts of the story. See the book club thread for more.★★★★★
382020-06DUSKDUSK ended up being a bit of a disappointment. Movement was great, but both enemies and weapons felt rather lackluster, and the many parts of the game in which you had to grope around in the dark with a shitty flashlight just felt annoying (with a couple of exceptions that did manage to spook).★★★

Claiming a spot.

1. Nier: Automata "Ending A" (1/3/20) Ending B (1/10/20)
Just got through ending B. Uhhhh, this game is insane. Can't wait to play more.

2. Spyro Reignited Trilogy "Spyro the Dragon" (1/14/20) "Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage" (1/21/20) "Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon" (1/29/20)
Spyro 2 is definitely the best one. 1 is good and 3 has way too many mini-games and extra characters. I want the core gameplay and YOTD has too many diversions from that. Still a great game, though. 3000/3000 Gamerscore, baby!

First update post!

#1 A Hat in Time – Completed 1/1/2020 PC – 8 hours
#2 Katamari Damacy: Reroll – Completed 1/1/2020 PC – 3 hours
#3 Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair – Completed 1/3/2020 PC – 10 hours
#4 Grow Home – Completed 1/4/2020 PS4 – 3 hours

A Hat in Time -- I played this entirely in co-op, and we had a blast. Shorter than I expected, and I would've liked one or two more worlds in the basegame, but it was still a top-notch 3D platformer.

Katamari Damacy: Reroll -- Please help, I have like half of this game's soundtrack stuck on loop in my head. Also - the PC port's performance was super weird. Some animations locked at 30FPS, while others were unlocked, causing quite a big disconnect across the screen. Odd stuff.

Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair -- Essentially a modern DKC-style 2.5D platformer, and I absolutely loved it. The overworld and its gimmicks were well implemented, and the changing levels was a very smart way to re-use ideas and assets between levels while still making things feel fresh. I think my one and only complaint is that the artstyle feels subdued at times. Everything else? Top notch stuff.

Grow Home -- I played through most of this in 2017 and just now remembered that I could finish this up tonight. It's definitely a very intentionally janky game, interesting little concept, but I can't say I was the biggest fan.

Maybe embedding the sheet wasn't a great idea, feels like the embed loads a bit slow on mobile. I wonder if it would make a difference if I used a single sheet instead of the multitab one.

Anyways, game 1 done. Finished Tacoma, it's neat.

1) Monster Boy: And The Cursed Kingdom - 24 hours
2) Dusk - 7 hours
3) Mega Man 11 - 4 hours
4) Final Fantasy VI - 24 hours

Hoping I can do more than 15 games this year. :p
My problem is not really finishing a game, but starting a new game after finishing another one. Somestimes, it can take many days until I start a new game after having finished one.

January 5: Slay the Spire. About 18 hours. Can't believe I finally had a successful run! This was on Switch, but OP said we can make our own rules, so nyah. Review: I hate roguelikes and card games but played this because of the positive reviews. And I can't wait to keep playing it. Definitely check it out if you're even slightly on the fence.

I completed game #2, Spyro the Dragon Remake.
Even though it's one package for all 3 remakes, I'm going to include them all as individual games, for obvious reasons.

It's neat, but some of the level design is a bit stale. Also it feels like some of it was built before they had deiced on Spyro's jump and jumping up stairs feels bad. Like you can almost make two steps in one jump but you can't. It's accurate to what I remember from the original though, and I wonder if the second game is the same.

#2: A Short Hike - Short and charming exploration game but need to break out of my Bayonet/1h Sword builds.

edit: loooool! I just noticed i somehow added my text to A Short Hike not Code Vein! there are NO Bayonets in A Short Hike, sorry folks!

#1 Halo: Reach: This was my first proper introduction to the Halo series, and it was quite the ride, although not necessarily in the way most people would expect from the use of that expression. More of a very mixed bag of highs and lows.

First thing's first: when the original Halo launched, my younger brother was insane about the game, and kept trying to get me to play it. Just by looking at him play, I was of the opinion that it was a perfectly "vulgar" game, and that if it had released on PC it would have been just another FPS, and people wouldn't be as hyped about it than they were on the Xbox. I understand it helped popularize the FPS genre on consoles, but I wasn't seeing nothing new in it, or particularly good. After much insistence, I tried a bit of co-op with him, but I was lost trying to aim using the Xbox controller, so I quickly dropped it.
When the game was released on PC, I tried the PC demo, and it only helped reinforce my opinion that it was a perfectly vulgar shooter. I didn't care for it one bit.

Fast forward to 2019/2020: I ended up buying the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The price point was quite good, for 6 games, and I ended up getting it to support more Microsoft releases on PC, and so that I could give the series another chance.
The first 3 or 4 missions, I was bored to tears. I really wasn't feeling the game at all, like my first impressions of the original Halo. Uninteresting maps and missions (it doesn't help that dialogues are hard to understand, and there's no subtitles for anything but the cutscenes), guns lacking in "feedback" (outside of a couple of weapons, it barely felt like I was hitting the enemies, especially with the alien weapons), and that whole thing about its "cover based" gameplay (take cover, shoot, take cover, shoot; I'm more of an old-school, run and shoot kind of player :) ).
But, after a few missions stages improved, and there were even some variations (like space combat sections, where you fly a ship) and I ended up having some fun with the later stages. So, my final impression ended up being on the positive side of things, and I'll be sure to play the next titles when they launch.
I still feel like many weapons lack "feedback" (pretty much all weapons that aren't sniper riffles; they could really improve that aspect of the game), and maps are mostly designed to take you from one encounter to another, and it's pretty clear when that's going to happen (when plenty of places to take cover appear on the screen). I like the game a lot more when you are running through several floors of a base, and killing enemies in frenetic fashion, or in missions like "the package", were you first have a somewhat open map (and even vehicular combat), and then have frenetic shootouts while flying around in a jetpack.

So, while I'm not totally converted to the series, I ended up enjoying my time with the later portion of the game.
Plus, from what I'm seeing the The Master Chief Collection really is a very generous offer, price-wise. 39,99€ for 6 games, plenty of multi-player modes (including co-op), plenty of challenges and achievements (with free unlockables tied to them), and more, is a pretty good deal.

#2 Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard: Like the first game, this new Frog Detective entry is a short, charming, and mostly "challengeless" game. Colourful graphics, an enjoyable soundtrack, and once again, plenty of "quirky" characters and dialogues.
I enjoyed my time with it. Although, I have to say that unlike the first game, several achievements require you to essentially "fail" on what you're supposed to do. When I played the first game, I managed to get all but one achievement just by normally playing the game. On this one, I only had less than half of the achievements, because most require you to fail and do "wrong things". I can't say I'm very found of this change in achievement logic, but the game is yet another nice break from all the violence and darkness that is featured in most videogames. I look forward to the next game. :)

Might as well try and document what games I have finished in 2020. Here we go:

1) Iron Fisticle (Steam) - Completed main game with 100% achievements. A fun indie game with arcade elements like Smash TV and Gauntlet...arcade games you find back in the 1980s and 90s. Those interested should find some fun with the game. Usually goes for $1.00 during sales events.

Got another update ready!

#5 Bloodborne – Completed 1/6/2020 PS4 – 26 hours
#6 Dragon Quest – Completed 1/7/2020 SNES – 10 hours
#7 Dragon Quest II – Completed 1/12/2020 SNES – 15 hours
#8 The Outer Worlds – Completed 1/18/2020 PC – 16 hours
#9 RiME – Completed 1/19/2020 PC – 4 hours

Bloodborne - I've had this on my backlog for nearly 5 years, and I bought it at launch... I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't get hooked back then. Well, since I went through DS3 and Demon's Souls last year, I figured it was high time that I finally played through Bloodborne, and I did. Great game, probably my second favorite behind Demon's Souls now.

Dragon Quest - Not much to say. It's the start of the series, and pretty simple. I enjoyed it, but I'm never touching it again.

Dragon Quest II - This is also pretty archaic, but when the game wasn't being too cryptic for its own good, I actually really enjoyed it! Probably liked it more than DQ1.

The Outer Worlds - New Vegas, in space. I enjoyed it, though it definitely felt too easy. Also optimization is actual garbage for AMD cards. My laptop runs the game better than my desktop... ironic, considering the splash screen has AMD branding.

RiME - I remembered hearing that the game's PC version had some performance issues, but I didn't really see that in my playthrough. Besides some framepacing issues in the starting area, it seemed to be a locked 1440p/60 at max settings. I enjoyed it way more than I expected. Beautiful art, amazing soundtrack, and a great twist with the story at the end.

5) Devolver Bootleg -- I loved it.
6) Downwell -- Will I ever beat this game?

February 2020:
7) Goat Simulator -- I'm just jackin' around, really.
8) Thomas Was Alone -- Beautiful.
9) Faerie Solitaire -- Mindless.
10) ZOMBI -- I think I'm playing this?

I will try to make an updated post here. If I remember to update it. If I remember where it is :anguished-face:

1) Picross S3 - Nintendo Switch - 2020.01.14 - 7 / 10

The universe is divided between the pure souls that never tried Picross and the shambling crack addicts that did. It's a good thing that the natural world doesn't have that much checkered patterns, because my life would suddenly consist of 'I see you God, there are 15 cases and those 3 must be black !!!'
That being said the pixel art is not that good, far too zoomed in at first to be pleasant. It often only make sense once zoomed out to a tiny stamp.
The new Color Picross mode is solid, but globally more of the same.
But it's Picross. And there are cases to fill :grimacing-face:

2) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Nintendo 3DS - 2020.01.17 - 2 / 10

A surprisingly miserable 90 hours experience. This is basically IV, next to no notable new ideas. The plot has its moments but they are relative and so few and far between. UI is horrible, it made the job the first time but didn't resist this second serving. In fact a lot of things become insufferable by repetition. Graphics for one. Character design is new, some say too anime, I say too shitty. The two last dungeons are horrific mess on the graphic front, one has to wonder how they could have been green lit. Music were perfect to go along this, meaning my hears suffered a lot.
Oh, and the final boss is an uber motherfucker, difficulty-wise.

#4 The White Door | January 20 | 115 minutes | ★★☆☆☆
Finished a couple of games. The White Door was disappointing, RDR2, on the other hand, was pretty impressive. I did not expect to like it so much, I'm probably going for all the achievements (mixing it up with other games).
