Guys, I did the unthinkable: I actually played a game I bought in the recent seal sale.
And I even finished it!
Anyway, I played Transference. It's a weird, twisted adventure game by Ubisoft and Elijah Wood's production company.
It's a game clearly thought out as a VR experience (and it should be a trip to play it in VR), but since I lack the hardware, I played it in its non-VR version, and it's still a short (around 3 hours), compelling, trippy experience.
Still playing Hitman 2.
I finally completed the last of the Holiday Hoarders challenges, but it was a bit of a disaster.
I forgot I was carrying an axe, and... well, let's just say instead of putting a guy to sleep, I may have hit him with an axe in the face, and my score was a disaster.
So much for "silent assassin".
Finished game number 2 of the year.
I probably already matched the number of games I completed last year.
Anyway, I played through The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game, a short (1 hour) adventure game, with simple gameplay, catchy jazz soundtrack, and an art style I really enjoyed.
It's a charming little game.
Apparently, this will be the first in a series of games featuring the Frog Detective, I look forward to check the upcoming games.
Let's see, I have just finished Lost in Vivo and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, really liked both of those and right now I'm playing Call of Duty: Ghosts because why not? the more variety of games I play, the better, who knows what will come next, finishing Yakuza 0 for the third time, maybe?
I've been playing some more Book of Demons. I decided to start again with a Warrior in Roguelike mode, as I had some pretty bad luck with the cards on my first character.
Almost at the third boss now and haven't died yet, Throw + Heal and the various green cards for getting back some hearts are really over-powered.
Unfortunately I clicked on 2 fountains by mistake and didn't get the achievements for roguelike mode without fountains
I'll probably try again with the Archer next time, as it has some pretty good combos as well.
Over the weekend, some more Rocket League on PC. I've also started playing Bleed which is a pretty quirky platformer/twin stick shooter hybrid. It's been pretty fun so far. Lastly, some Downwell on PC since it was recently patched.
After 177 hours, I finally finished Divinity Original Sin 2! It was a hell of a journey. Definitely one of the best RPGs I've ever played. Now playing Into the Breach followed by a few other short indie games before moving on to another lengthy RPG.
Finished the campaign in Book of Demons. Yup, I defeated Archdemon. I reached to him without dying once. Before facing Archdemon I resupplied all my potions. But I would never have guess that Archdemon had so many life bars and so many minions. I used more than half of my health potions before reaching down half of his health. Then I conserved the health potions and got down the last health bar. But I died!!! But then some kind of rage was activated and I could still fight. So I fought with what had left and finally defeated Archdemon!!
Sleepy Dogs: Definitive Edition. Slapped a ReShade in their tonight and set up some basics, I'll fine tune it more tomorrow and begin a playthrough earnestly soon. I hope to get all the achievements or at least 90%!
I want to start a VN soon so that I am reading something in spare moments. I think I will roll some dice or use a RNG tool to randomly pick one.
I just started Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magicka Obscura and man, what a charming game! REALLY excited to play it. Also started PREY recently and enjoying that as well as being sucked into Path of Exile.
I'm doing unhealthy amounts of BF5, with some PUBG from time to time, and War Thunder reminding me that it's the only somewhat fun tank game I've got right now.
On the SP front, I just started DOOM VFR, finished Bright Memory Episode 1 EA content, and I'm going to start Moss, since I just got it for my birthday and it looks really cool (plus more use for the good old WMR headset).
Since i haven't played Oxenfree I don't know how/if they compare.
As for what type of game it's a storydriven game (without going to much in detail) about that period of time when you "start being an adult" (18~Early 20s) in which you follow this loop:
Wake Up --> Explore city (which slowly opens up) --> hangout with your friends.
I don't know if that helps you or not.
Putting Darksiders on hold in favour for Xanadu Next. The game is not controller friendly game. I think it was made with keyboard and mouse in mind. There are many doors in the dungeons that you require keys to unlock. Most keys are to be bought from a shop which makes you grind a lot for money to buy them. So there is a lot traveling back to the town. Almost all doors in the dungeons require a key to open.
I got tired of this and used Cheat Engine to give me infinite number of keys
I started another playthrough of The House in Fata Morgana (once I'm done I'll move on, promise! Plus I still have to play the sequel). I'm also playing the expansion for the first Call of Duty, Redout (the second vehicle tier is pretty hard for me) and Celeste for the second time (already finished it on Switch, though just the story; those B-sides are impossible, and I didn't find all the collectibles).
Everyone who likes platformers should try Celeste. It's absolutely amazing.
