Post by Blackhawk » Tue Jan 01, 2019 11:03 am

Time for another go. I had a long gaming break last year, but finished off strong. Let's see how 2019 goes!

Finished (PC unless specified):
  • Far Cry 5
  • Prey
  • The Division (all non-DZ content at 100%, coop with friends)
  • Total War: Warhammer (Wood Elf campaign)
  • Total War: Warhammer 2 (Lizardmen campaign)
  • Submerged
Playing:
Side Games (multiplayer, coop only etc):
  • Overwatch
  • GTA Online
  • Rainbow Six: Siege
  • The Division
1/29 - Far Cry 5. I had fun with this. It was Far Cry, for all that means. There were things I loved, there were things I didn't. Yeah, the story had issues, but it's Far Cry. The story is just an excuse. The gameplay was a blast, save for certain forced events. The ending was... well, it has some possibilities. You're left wondering what happened, and what happens next. We know now that they set up a sequel. As with most Far Cry games, I got tired of its formula just as I was approaching the end, which is a good thing. Criticisms of the story aside, I really did have a blast. Montana was a great setting, familiar enough to feel fresh, as 'our everyday world' is a setting we don't often see in games. Worth the price of admission.

3/17 - Just finished Prey. I really liked this one. If you haven't played it, it's essentially System Shock 3, and is a better 'spiritual sequel' to it than Bioshock. It isn't subtle, either, going so far as to name their holo-panel technology 'Looking Glass.' It really wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be an action shooter. I was very pleasantly surprised. It has multiple endings, moral ambiguity, and choices that significantly affect the outcome.

5/3 - Finished Submerged. It's an exploration game. No combat, no death, and only a couple of dozen spoken words in the entire thing, those being in a fictional language. It was a lot of fun. The best way to describe it would be as a third person walking simulator (if you know the term - Dear Esther and Gone Home are in the genre) set in a future after society has fallen and the world has been covered in water. All that's left of the previous society are the tops of the skyscrapers in a large city sticking out of the ocean. The gameplay is part pure exploration - going from place to place, looking around, discovering what's there, and part climbing puzzle - think Assassin's Creed climbing. As you explore you discover bits and pieces of the story of the world and what's happened to bring it to this state, while simultaneously living out the protagonist's story. I found it peaceful, relaxing, and thoughtful, which is something I like every now and then. It's not for everyone, but I liked it.

Finished

Shuyan Saga (1/1/19) - More or an interactive graphic novel, but there is fighting using your mouse. An interesting story and a solid diversion
Far Cry 5 (3/31/19) - I enjoyed it. Follows the same formula as the last few, but the world and all of your options keep it fun
Assassin's Creed: Origins (5/1/19) - I enjoyed this tremendously. Havne't played an AC since #3 but this was really, really good

21 games finished in 2018

I haven't finished any games this year!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - 20190103 - like Borderlands 2 but with less oxygen and less gravity
Yakuza Zero - 20190121 - nothing I would normally have played, but Humble Monthly gave it to me and I figured I would give it a shot
Tyranny - 20190205 - didn't know much about it going in, still a bit confused, but it was fun :D
Astroneer - 20190216 - the release added an interesting new layer on top of the early access version, also removing some annoyance, thumbs up
Far Cry New Dawn - 20190218 - yeah, two days after finishing Astroneer. A little short for the price, but Far Cry fun... a nice continuation of the story from Far Cry 5.
Destiny 2 - 20190223 - calling it done as much as a multiplayer focused endless game can be done. I finished the story and got what I wanted out of it.
Prey - 20190225 - It took me a few tries to get into it, but once I did I had a lot of fun. Story was... interesting.
Final Fantasy XV - 20190311 - As Noctis says in the final scene, "It's finally over..."
The Division 2 - 20190413 - Calling it finished even though I am still playing it. I've hit the gear score soft cap and started a second character. I'm calling that finished.
Assassin's Creed: Unity - 20190428 - A little late, but I finally finished it (despite the *&$*&$ controls). There is now one AC game left... the first one.
Supraland - 20190505 - Awesome puzzle game

Release Date Tracking:
Metro Exodus: 2/15/2019 (Epic Exclusive)

Wow, the difference between Tomb Raider: Legend and Underworld is stark for just two years separating them. I always assumed Crystal Dynamics stuck with the same engine for that trilogy.

Didn't expect to finish AC Rogue so quickly. I'm trying to catch up on the series and hewed pretty closely to the main story, Finished at 59%

8/10 Cube Escape Paradox (PC) - Great room escape game, not quite as compelling as the regular Rusty Lake games, but almost.
5/10 Sakura Beach 2 (PC) - Same as 1...even for what you know you get with these games, the story was boring, the art mediocre, and the choices pointless.
7/10 The Frostrune (PC) - Not a bad little adventure, but the high-quality art and decent writing could have been used in a less casual, more fleshed-out game.
7/10 Fantasy Mosaics 17: New Palette (PC) - As picross/nonogram games go, this series is consistently good, even if some of the images are dumb.
7/10 Hook (PC) - Clever and elegant puzzle game but short and with too few new tricks as you progress.
7/10 Push (PC) - Another smooth and clever puzzler, with neat moving parts, but over in less than 2 hours.

Playing
  1. Lost Odyssey: on disc 3 of 4.
  2. Lunar Silver Star Story Touch: now in Tamur.
Abandoned
  1. Regency Solitaire: the powerups add some neat mechanics, but the story doesn't grab me and it's annoying to have to play all 10 hands of a chapter even when you've completed the chapter's goals. I stopped at chapter 5.
  2. Yosumin!: similar to match 3 games, but you clear rectangular areas of icons by matching four corners. Challenging, but too cute and cloying. I stopped at stage 2-5 of the adventure mode.
  3. Omikron: The Nomad Soul: Not modern enough to get me to the church on time. Thoughts here.
  4. Martian Memorandum: Old-fashioned PIs are great, but not old-fashioned interfaces. Thoughts here.
  5. Trine: Lovely visuals and music, but I grew tired of the slippery controls and physics by the time I reached the third area.
  6. The Oil Blue: Time management game with the intriguing theme of offshore oil production. Feels too dry, though, and has annoying load times and minigames.
  7. Cook, Serve, Delicious!: Addictive but repetitive and progress takes too long. Stopped after earning the first star.
  8. Faerie Solitaire Remastered: Even duller than Regency Solitaire. Stopped after freeing the first fairy.
  9. Roundabout: Interesting but too tough, stopped playing at 14.7% completion. Thoughts here.
Ye finyshed gaemes o' yore: 2006 (15); 2007 (14); 2008 (20); 2009 (23); 2010 (13); 2011 (15); 2012 (17); 2013 (25); 2014 (25); 2015 (9); 2016 (8); 2017 (9); 2018 (2)

Always start the new year with good intentions - right now:
Steins;Gate, Elex, DOS2, and Subnautica are in rotation - with a mindless, occasional sprinkling of Faerie Solitaire :lol:
Jesus said, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body."[Matt 10:28] God can totally destroy us.

Jesus also said, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”[John 6:40] Eternal life is conditional.

His disciple John wrote, "Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. [1 John 5:12] Eternal life is optional.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

I've only played Wolfenstein: The New Order in this series previously so don't come to the series with a sense of nostalgia (though I very much appreciated the secret level in TNO).

A prequel to TNO, it's shorter and more focused on action than action mixed with story. The pitch is that it's a get in / get out mission as opposed to a grand, sweeping, "for freedom's sake" narrative.
Sneaking and scouting is still a major strategy in this game as eliminating the commanders who can call for reinforcements saves on bullets, armour (and checkpoint reloads). But it's the action that is still front-and-centre and (imo) it's done well. A good assortment of weapons and enemies. Scattered health kits and armour reinforcement. The map is helpful (once you find the fragments) to make sure you know where to go.

I had great fun and it was short enough that I'm considering another run.

Finished up Sniper Elite 4, which puts me as complete on the whole series. At least until they release 5 next year-ish.

Or I could go back for the Zombie Army Trilogy...

I guess I will report that I finished Fallout 4. Finished up the Railroad storyline. Was left vaguely unsatisfied. But I do have a few other quests that I want to complete before I mothball it.

Finished Submerged. It's an exploration game. No combat, no death, and only a couple of dozen spoken words in the entire thing, those being in a fictional language. It was a lot of fun. The best way to describe it would be as a third person walking simulator (if you know the term - Dear Esther and Gone Home are in the genre) set in a future after society has fallen and the world has been covered in water. All that's left of the previous society are the tops of the skyscrapers in a large city sticking out of the ocean. The gameplay is part pure exploration - going from place to place, looking around, discovering what's there, and part climbing puzzle - think Assassin's Creed climbing. As you explore you discover bits and pieces of the story of the world and what's happened to bring it to this state, while simultaneously living out the protagonist's story. I found it peaceful, relaxing, and thoughtful, which is something I like every now and then. It's not for everyone, but I liked it.

  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - (7/10) Do you want more Uncharted without Drake? Sure! This is a shorter adventure than Uncharted 4 but has two of my favorite characters teaming up to find yet another ancient treasure that could bring doom to the world. Chloe and Nadine share several nice moments together and seem to play off each other well. Props to the writing and acting of the two. The main bad guy is standard stuff but I get to shoot all his men and steal his treasure out from under him. Oh, and blow his ass up in a exciting climatic train scene. It is a super fun ride like all the Uncharted games and I'm glad they did this DLC. Lots of fun. March 3, 2019

  • Gorogoa - (5/10) Ok, I did not love this game mainly because I simply did not understand the story going on behind all the puzzles. The puzzles are good but mostly I solved them through brute force clicking every combination. Sometimes I felt clever but mostly I was just clicking. Now the art in the puzzles are amazing and how things bend into new puzzles is incredible and well worth the price. But in the end I still do not really understand the story which took of some of the shine. March 6, 2019

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 - (10/10) A true masterpiece in both the narrative and the open world. There is so much to discover in this game that I doubt I will ever find the time to finish all over it but I managed to focus myself long enough to finished the main campaign and very long epilogue. I really connected with the main character Arthur Morgan and without getting spoilery just watching his life slowly slip away was heartbreaking and a few times I simply had to force myself to get to playing the game simply because the losses that Arthur was experiencing with to sad and bitter to deal with. But this really is an amazing game with so many systems working together seamlessly. In the end, this game is an easy 10 out of 10 and I haven't even scratched the multiple-player. With the main story finished I have stopped playing for a while but I still want to go back and hunt my way to all the outfits (so MANY) and find out where other weird and funky side missions still are waiting for me out there.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - (10/10) The best game on the switch. The open world is beautiful and is full of atmosphere noises and music. Very little bombast in this game other than a few key story moments and I think it was a great idea to do that. I enjoyed hunting down chest to replace my weapons as the wear out. In fact, the drove me to keep going. If I had just got a set of weapons and did not have to replace them I would have just run by all the hidden chests so I think this was a smart move. Most of the side quests are pretty interesting and the main story-line is a nice Zelda story. And I loved discovering all the physic systems going on that the game doesn't really tell you about but lets you discover. That and hunting down all the shrines which instantly become fast travel points spurs you on to keep exploring. The final battle was fitting but I wish they had come up with a more clever way to show life after Gannon but I guess that is for a future game. May 11, 2019

  • Horizon Zero Dawn - (9/10) Wow, robot dinosaurs! I remember the trailer and thinking no way this game will live up to that hype. But it did but not in the way I expected but I think it still hits the right mark. First off, the intro story is excellent and quickly hooks you into caring about Aloy the main character and the people who surround you. The narrative does take a back seat to all the open world and side quests but does pay off well as you learn why this world exists and your part in it. Hunting and fighting the robot dinosaurs is challenging and a lot of fun with the ability to knock out components, weapons and armor to wear down your prey. By the end if the game I was an accomplished warrior with great gear. The build up to that is satisfying. Without spoiling anything I will saw that some of the story line is extremely sad and desperate but entirely logical. The final battle hits alot of the good points and ends with Aloy victorious and has me thinking I might check of the Frozen Wild DLC. May 29, 2019
