The State of the Gamer: 12/16/21

<–The State of the Gamer: 12/2/21           The State of the Gamer: 12/30/21–>

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 Demoed

  • Brain Age: Concentration Training – You get 30 sessions, but it only takes you through one game.  Granted I’m going to pick it up based on that at some point anyway, but it’s $30 so not right now.

What I Purchased

  • Persona 4 Golden (PlayStation Vita) – $60 from Cheap Boss Attack
  • OneShot (PC) – $5.99 @ Steam

Total: $65.99


What I Finished

Nothing this time.


What I’m Playing

Title: The Lost Child
Series: El Shaddai
System: Nintendo Switch

Cover of The Lost ChildDate Started: July 31, 2021

Still haven’t played this.  I did find the LP/walkthrough I was watching with the puzzle solution, but I haven’t had the mental capacity to fire up the game and play it.  I will eventually.


What I Watched

  • CJUGames
    • Quadrant – Three words: giant moon spiders, and that’s just in the first chapter.
    • Dark Fall: The Journal – I only watched a little bit of this, but I might come back to it.  It seems to be in the same vein as Barrow Hill, which as mentioned before I nearly died watching because I was laughing so goddamn hard.
    • Doorways – Another one I’ll probably come back to.
    • Get Even – This is one of those mindfuck/what’s really going on games about a mercenary with amnesia trying to rescue some girl-wait…why does that sound familiar???
    • At Dead of Night – This game is full FMV about a girl running from a murderer in a haunted hotel.  It’s fully voice acted and looks amazing.
  • Olizandri
    • The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve – I’m pretty sure there’s just one more video left since the last trial is over and only the denouement is left.
    • Pokémon Brilliant Diamond – I’ve never played or even seen a Pokémon game and I wanted to remedy that.

If you’re going to spend money on games at least buy them from your friends.  I consider the $60 for Persona 4 Golden well spent, plus it got here way faster than if I’d used Fedex or something lol.  

I really haven’t picked up playing games again.  I think I’m just super stressed out due to the season, though games should help relieve that?  But then I think about what I’d have to do in order to get back into say The Lost Child or Tales of Berseria, and I’m like ahhhh too much.  It’s like I can’t get over the hump of what I need to do in order to play. 

If every single game could be released for the Nintendo Switch that would make my life a lot easier please and thank you.
