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!

  • The DioField Chronicles – It’s another Squeenix SRPG game with more realistic graphic than Triangle Strategy.  I wasn’t into it but hopefully one of my LPers will play it so I can watch.

I was really into this when I first started it, but my interest has started to wane and I’m not sure why.   There’s more backtracking in this game and I’ve only gone to two towns.  I already have an idea of what a major twist is going to be.  It’s something Squeenix has done before if I’m right.

Games Played: 6

I played more little puzzle games on my iPhone this week.  Wound up (re)downloading The Room series of games (so 4 games).  I love when puzzle games are intricate enough that you can play them again and still find a challenge.  I’m currently playing The Room: Old Sins, which is sadly the last one they released that isn’t VR.  I hope they either give the latest one a non-VR version or have that option for the next.

Machinika Museum was an interesting game about someone who tries to figure out alien artifacts.  Another puzzle game of course.  I liked it, but it was a bit glitchy and there was no help option.  There’s going to be a sequel though, and I hope the devs take the suggestions into mind.

Riddlord is another free/cheap point-and-click that’s okay but not as good as some of the ones I found before.  You can combine objects but it’s not clear exactly how to do that and it was a bit frustrating.  At least there’s a help option.

Let’s Plays Watched: 6

  • Olizandri
    • Xenoblade Chronicles – The going is still slow on watching this, and I feel like I’ve been in the same spot for a while, but I’m trying.
    • Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 – I think it might be my general malaise that’s causing me to have less interest in this, though I am kind of worried for the characters lol.  Things are not looking good and a lot of the people that I thought were decent aren’t.  It’s thrown me for quite a loop, which is damn good storytelling and how Rean the MC probably feels, too.
  • CJUGames
    • The Room – Haha yeah I’m rewatching his play-through of this because he’s so delighted with the puzzle/problem solving.
    • Locked In – This was one of those low res, abandoned prison exploration horror games with a nice twist.  The environments kept changing around you and the creep factor slowly seeps in.  It’s only the first chapter so I’m hoping for more.
    • Lake Ridden – This isn’t so much a horror game as a game set in a sort of eerie place.  The MC is trying to figure out what happened to her sister and has to solve puzzles to advance.
    • Call of the Sea – The absolute best game I watched in the past two weeks.  It’s a Lovecraftian/Cthulhu based point-and-click puzzle game where the MC is trying to find her husband on this deserted Polynesian Island.

*I spent some money on the iPhone games, but I didn’t keep track of it, plus the amounts were probably under $5 each if that.

I’m still under the weather so I’m calling the doctor tomorrow.  It’s annoying lol.  I was hoping this would go away, but I may need to be re-evaluated for my asthma/lung function.  I guess we’ll see.  Once the weather/temperature stabilizes (if it ever does), things should get better?  Idk anymore.
