Steam summer sale haul

The most annoying thing about the Steam summer sale is that it always starts and ends before I get paid. I mean, really, couldn’t you have waited a bit more so I can splurge without feeling bad?

Anywayz, I had to choose between either picking a lot of games that were dirt cheap even off sales or buy the more expensive ones that are easily affordable now. The answer was simple.

The haul also includes my boyfriend’s purchases ’cause we have the shared library thingie so we can play each other’s games.

My picks:

Portal

Portal 2

Time Gentleman, Please!

Ben There, Dan That!

The Wolf Among Us

Broken Sword 1: Director’s Cut

Broken Age

That Dragon, Cancer

MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT

Kathy Rain

Home is Where One Starts…

His lame-ass picks:

BioShock: The Collection

  • BioShock Remastered
  • BioShock 2 Remastered
  • BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den Remastered
  • BioShock Infinite
  • BioShock Infinte – Season Pass
  • BioShock Infinite: Columbia’s Finest

Borderlands 2 Game of the Year

  • Borderlands 2
  • Borderlands 2 – Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty
  • Borderlands 2 – Psycho Pack
  • Borderlands 2: Collector’s Edition Pack
  • Borderlands 2: Creature Slaughterdome
  • Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack
  • Borderlands 2: Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage
  • Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
  • Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep

As I’m not a big fan of AAA games, my games of choice are pretty affordable in general so I could afford holding back for now. Nonetheless, I’m most excited for Kathy Rain, That Dragon, Cancer, The Wolf Among Us and MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT and I can’t. fucking. wait. to get. playing.

And maybe I’ll use this opportunity to try out BioShock to see what the hype is all about. You know, widen my horizons.


What about you? What did you pick up and what are you most hyped for?

Gaming challenge day 4 – Your guilty pleasure game

Elementary, my dear Watson.

league

It’s fucking League of Legends. And, if you know me, you must have already known that.

Yes, this is a pleb answer. But I just can’t help it. I wasted too much of my life playing this shitty game and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon, even if I have managed to get myself on a healthier path (back in the days, I would even play LoL for 20+ hours a day)

There’s not much to be said about LoL, everyone knows the drill. As for random facts, I don’t play a shit ton of champions, I’m currently a support main slowly transitioning to mid laners and I’m fucking scared of Orianna.

I’m not the best player and I don’t claim to be (this is such a lie, I claim to be the very best like no one ever was and I sometimes make people call me Faker) – Platinum V atm.

My most played champion is Nami, but my favourite one is Rammus. And back in the days, when I was playing jungle and when Rammus was meta, I was pretty good with him. From time to time. Proof below.

1622418_792219354169819_485613522268377244_o

No, I will not admit the fact that that match was played in fucking 2014.

And yes. There you have it. League of Legends is my guilty pleasure. I can play it for hours without moving. And it always gets me angry and frustrated. Sometimes, even if I’m winning. But heh, that’s life and the community is to be discussed in a different post, on a different day.

Gaming challenge day 3 – A game that is underrated

I don’t know exactly whether they refer to underrated as having low ratings or underrated as in not popular. But I’ll go with the second one here, ’cause this game has pretty nice reviews.

Damn, this challenge should be more specific.

Anyways, this was not a hard pick. I’m a huge fan of indie games and I think most of them deserve more recognition and more publicity. However, there’s the one that stays above them all. (I won’t judge you if you don’t take my word for it, but I highly advise that you do)

Masochisia

developer: Oldblood

masochisia

A point and click psychological horror. How many times did we hear this before, only to be let down once again, disappointed by how not horror or, in some sad cases, not even interesting the game actually is.

WELL WAIT NO MORE FELLAS

If you read the brief description on Steam, you’ll only know that you play as a boy who suffers from hallucinations and finds out that he will become a violent psychopathic  killer and that it’s up to you to whether follow the bad path or to struggle and change your fate. Pretty interesting, right?

Well, if you’re a bit curious, you can easily find out that the game was inspired by American serial killer Albert Fish and suddenly you no longer wish for a game to be so close to reality.

Masochisia is short. It only takes about 2 and a half hours from start to finish. But man, 984109are you in for a ride. I often find that short stories make great games and Masochisia is living proof. One plot line and the story develops accordingly. Will you manage to change your fate or will you end up a nightmare? Who am I if I don’t spoil things? You can’t change fate. This is the point of the game. Fate is fate. And the harder you try, the worse it burns you. You’ll see. Just play the fucking game, okay?

You have an abusive old father, a fucking weird ass schizophrenic mother and a masochistic bro. You also live deep in the woods. Pretty happy fucking family, ain’t it? You bet your ass it is.

The game is also very nice in terms of visuals. Beautiful art work that totally helps with the mood. Same goes for the soundtrack, but I’m no expert in music or art. Or anything else, if that matters, thank you.

And of course, it’s not all wine and spice and everything nice if I’m gonna take a truthful approach. You might find the game to be a little slow and annoying at times. You’ll spend 09.30.15-3most of the times clicking a static background so that you can navigate. The jump scares become pretty repetitive at some point, although they worked in my case. The fact that they’re not that many is, again, a plus. I also spent over one hour on my first playthrough, stuck between chapters, because I couldn’t find what I needed. Turned out to be a bug and that I had to restart the chapter. The fact that I enjoyed this game so much and went for a second gaming session despite this proves that it’s an actually well made one.

But, you see, it’s the little things that count. As such, I highly recommend that, if you start playing the game, you take a little break between chapters to check what’s going on with your life, see if you find anything odd invading your privacy. You might find some goodies.

All in all, I think this game deserves way more attention than what it has right now. Even if it doesn’t become your favourite game (and I’m totally judging if it does, you sick fuck), it will certainly be one of those games stuck in your head forever. Or at least for a prolonged period of time.


And because I’m always interested in nice games that are not so popular, please do let me know what your pick would be for this topic. Either way, I’ll just use this opportunity to ask for recommendations of indie games. Throw them at me.

Gaming Challenge Day 2 – Your favourite character

Ahahah, I already hate this so much. I’ve been literally sitting here staring at the screen, making mental lists of games I’ve played and trying to pick the character I’ve loved the most.

But this ain’t no easy task. Especially for me and my bad habit of getting attached if I play something for too long.

So maybe I could go for Ezio Auditore da Fireze, the only Italian guy I actually ever liked and the reason for which I have played Assassin’s Creed for more than it deserved. But nope. Fuck that (literally and mostly the older version). Too Italian and a bit too blind to follow orders. I get it, it was your creed and all that, but I’m still not overall pleased with his overall life performance.

Or maybe I could be try and pick The Narrator from The Stanley Parable just because I fell in love with annoying him and getting burn after burn after burn and, I swear to god, that never felt so good. I love myself a good sense of humour in a man.

But then, again, maybe not. What he got in humour, he may lack in other departments that I will never find out because there’s nothing too revealing and the main focus on his characters was also the only one.

No, sir. I realized that my favourite character had to be smart. And funny. And brave, yes, brave. And loyal and determined. He must have a very strong will and must be powerful enough to always get what he wants. And let’s not forget about the looks, because looks are very important. He must be a sexy motherfucker. And then it hit me.


Okay, fine. Maybe he’s not my favourite character because I don’t really have one. Every game has its nice characters and, actually, the more flawed, the better. However, my special talents include finding something annoying in everything and everyone and I still have yet to find that one character that I would fall madly in love with.


Nonetheless, I hereby present to you, Manuel Calavera.

Grim Fandango

calavera

Bahaha, I love this guy. I knew I liked him since the very beginning, but my appreciation grew to unbelievable heights when he did the thing with the café after picking up the broom. (This is me trying to avoid spoilers).

And only then have I realized his true potential as a businessman and I’ve never been so impressed. Much respect. Very admirable. Such Manny.

Hey, Trump. Let me see you build a wall against THIS Mexican.


Totally unrelated, but just so you can catch a glimpse into my sad sad life, devoid of all pleasure and fulfillment: I am currently so tired that I’ve been thinking about Manny Calavera since I started writing this post, but forgot the name of the game so I had to search through Steam to remember it, but halfway I started reading titles without thinking and only then I realized I can actually google him and now I’m writing this.

PS: I didn’t proofread this either.

PPS: Please send me to sleep.

Gaming Challenge Day 1 – Very First Video Game

So, the 30 Days Anime Challenge is a pretty popular topic around the anime sphere of blogging. However, I have recently discovered the 30 Days Video Game Challenge as well and, hell. What better way to get me pumped again for blogging? Especially since I was planning on writing more about games anyway? So here goes nothing, buddies.

30daygamechallenge

Very first video game

smb-1qmych

I’m pretty sure most ’90s kids will have the same pick. And it’s Super Mario Bros. Nothing special here. It’s just the classic game everyone and their mamma played. The more interesting part comes from the fact that I did not own a Nintendo. No, sir. Back then, there was this thing, popular in Easter Europe, called Terminator 2. We all played on that shit.

It was really cheap and you would only get a few games, such as Super Mario Bros, Adventure Island and Duck Hunt. And a few irrelevant others, obviously, but this is what I would spend most of my time playing. Hell, we wouldn’t even know what a console is. We were such peasants we would call it a TV game.

thumb-392x220.1

I also remember the disappointment whenever the princess was not in that fucking castle. Needless to say, it was the only Mario I have ever played. I was so fed up with Mario that, as soon as I got a PC, I started looking for what I would call “real” games.

And let’s not forget about the times when, as the younger sibling, I was forced to play as Luigi whenever my sister felt like playing as well. Lucky for me, she turned out to be more interested in fangirling over Nick Carter back then.

My Winter 2017 stats AKA I’m just garbage

Hey, guys. Remember my Winter 2017 want to watch list? Yeah, lol, me neither.

I just came to the sudden realization that it’s fucking summer and I did not manage to do abso-fucking-loutely nothing out of all the things I said I would do.

So, just to deepen the shame even more, I’m gonna go for a round-up of what I planned to watch the past winter season. And, what do you think? I actually managed to complete some titles. Keeping the same order:

Chaos;Child – Didn’t even bother checking it out. I heard some nasty shit about it being a shitty sequel to a not-so-good original in the first place so I decided it’s not worth my time. We all make mistakes.

Fuuka – This was shit. Dropped at 5 episodes in and now, looking back, I’m not sure how I managed to get this far. I guess the title is just a new way of spelling cliché. Everything in this show is annoying and overused. The band thing was pathetic.

Gabriel Dropout – Actually finished this one. I was expecting something along the lines

gabriel

of Umaru-chan, but it wasn’t that close it. Notsure if that’s a good thing or not, but the show did not strike me either as impressive or a must watch. Relaxing comedy. Again, annoying at times. I would’ve liked to see more of Gabriel, however. It seems like the main character was either Satania or Vignette and none of them was that high to my liking. Would rate it a 3/5.

Little Witch Academia TV – Did not watch. Not because I didn’t like the idea, but because I never found myself in the mood for it. Yeah, sure, the sort of magical things that would even make a good TV series is kinda nice, but you have to be in the mood for it at all times. Otherwise, it’s just boring. And I didn’t want to ruin my experience by forcefully watching it. It’s still on my want to watch list. (and I think it’s gonna stay there for a while)

Masamune-kun’s Revenge – Another fucking bullshit of a show. Dropped at episode 5. What initially sounded like a promising plot turned out to be the same old anime high school story with the same old characters and same old wannabe development. I’ve grown tired of this shit a long time ago.

Scum’s Wish – The other finished one and a pretty good series, actually. It takes on a420ba359f1c3ffae4b8f72d573d6ce700cf9a74f_hq more realistic approach to high school students and it was not afraid to tackle more serious subjects such as sex in your teenage years. The only issue I have with it, and it’s a major one, is the fact that it tries to hard. This is not the post I go in-depth with this, but maybe I’ll give it another watch and get back here with details about what I’m talking about. (and all of us know that I won’t do that, so who am I fooling?)

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu 2 – Shame. I’m still only 4 episodes in and this was my most hyped show for the season. It’s good, yes. Maybe it lacks that certain charm of the first season, but it’s still good nonetheless. Not going to talk about it more, I can’t give my final word as of right now. But I will definitely enjoy it. Even if it’s just because I was absolutely in love with its first season.


In additional to the original titles on my list, I also picked up Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. Still watching it, of course, but hey, it’s a nice, relaxing show. The popular opinion might have been right this time.
