The State of the Gamer: 10/21/21

A weekly post updated every other Thursday detailing my current gaming projects.  I have an account at Grouvee, which is a site you can use to keep track of your backlog, so please feel free to friend me there!

What I Purchased

Nothing this time.  I kept my wallet in my pants like a good girl 😋


What I Demoed

Nothing this time.  I kept my hands in my pants…uhhhhhhhhh okay that line isn’t going to work as, er, wholesomely here 😅


What I Finished

Title: The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures
Series: Ace Attorney
System: Nintendo Switch

Date Finished: October 10, 2021

This is clearly just the first half of the entire story.  I made a list of questions that needed answered and maybe one of them was.  I can already see what the second game is shaping up to be, and I cannot wait.  I literally have no complaints with any of the Ace Attorney games.  They are some of the best written video games ever made and definitely make it into my top 20 list of such.


What I’m Playing

It took me longer than I’d like to admit to figure how how to get to the second game, but I did it and am currently in the midst of the third case.  Obviously, I have to hold off on looking up anything about the lovely Lord van Zieks until I finish the entire thing, but that’s okay; I still get to look at him.

If you need someone to punish, I volunteer as tribute ❤

WHY DO THEY MAKE THESE BROODING FICTIONAL MENS SO BEAUTIFUL 😭

Goddamn it…

And don’t get me wrong, I love the character of Iris; she’s Herlock Sholmes’ (copyright shit so they had to change his name) adopted daughter, roommate, assistant, etc. but she had the audacity to say Lord van Zieks wasn’t as handsome as the painting in the background, and I was like “Bitch WHAT??  Imma give you a pass because you’re only ten, but I think you’ve been inhaling too many of your experimental chemicals.”

*ahem*  Okay that’s enough simping for today.  There’s actually a lot more about him in the third case.  At the very least we’re finding out more about his history, because the Ace Attorney games always end up being about the prosecutor’s redemption.  There’s also a potentially huge plot twist coming up that I think I’ve already worked out.  I initially thought it was way too outlandish, but the game keeps leading me down that path, so I guess we’ll see.

Title: The Lost Child
Series: El Shaddai

The current R’lyeh Road floor I’m on is really annoying.  After a certain number of steps it warps you to a random area and you have to start from there.  I can’t figure out if there’s a way to avoid the warping, but it’s making it very hard to find the jewel and make it to the next floor.

The main game’s final dungeon has this one puzzle I’ve never been good it.  You know the ones where you have to light up one part and it lights up or darkens the adjacent lights?  Yeah, one of those.  I’m not good at them, so I just looked up a walkthrough.  Turns out there are two more of increasing difficulty, so yeah; I’m glad I looked it up.  I saved at the the third and (hopefully) final one.  I feel absolutely no shame in doing this.  Of course I could take hours to figure it out and get frustrated, which will make me not want to play the game.  And it’s funny because back in the day when that wasn’t an option, I might have very well have forced myself to do it, but I think with the combined forces of having many other game options and the ability to look it up, if I couldn’t do the latter, I’d wind up going with the former.


What I Watched

  • CJUGames
    • Barrow Hill: The Dark Path – I actually forgot about this game lol.  I watched the first few videos then when I finished up The Great Ace Attorney: Adventure, I started watching Oliz play that during the day.
    • White Night – Just started this today.  The aesthetic is so freaking cool.  It’s all black and white sort of film noir. The story is a bit cliched with the “finding abandoned mansion after an accident,” but it’s still interesting.
    • Poppy Playtime – Holy fuck did this game hit my biggest fear.  I HATE being chased.  I can’t play games where it happens and to make it even worse, you’re being chased in narrow tunnels.  There was only one episode, so I’ll have to be on the lookout for more.
    • The Alien Cube – I did like this but I keep not paying as much attention to it as I’d like whenever I watch.
  • Olizandri
    • Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap – I was watching this because I was in between let’s plays and I don’t watch horror games at night.
    • The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures – Part of me wishes I’d finished the entire two game series before starting to watch his LP, but it’s okay; I’m still picking up some extra details.

I didn’t post about Tales of Berseria on this week because I’ve basically put it on hold.  I’ll pick it back up when I finish either Ace Attorney or The Lost Child.

I’ve been catching up on the new fall show releases, and I have a bunch of suggestions for new things to watch.  The second season of Locke and Key just dropped, and my brother told me about the show You, which I knew about but didn’t really look much into.  I still need to watch Marvel’s What If and this other show Midnight Mass.  I also want to watch Nine Perfect Strangers maybe after I read it.  It’s another Liane Moriarity, and they also did a show for her Big Little Lies that my BFF says is really good.
