finish 2 more games. No modern games interested me (maybe cuphead because i know it can run well on my old pc)

1. Dead Effect
Mediocre zombie shooter made with unity and mobile port. Speedback solved the slow gameplay problem. Thankfully the later level is easier once you collected enough resource to upgrade your weapon. And somehow the game have character upgrade in the level instead that slightly boost various aspect of gameplay (weird, usually you made them from gaining experience right?). Not gonna do new game plus and tick it off as completed

2. DMC 4 SE
Ah finally, the Legendary Dark Knight was too difficult for me that I made full use of all items in the game (thx fully it quite easy to restock the money in this difficulty). So far I love the Vergil playstyle (easy, flashy with teleport) and Lady (shotgun as super crowd killer). I dont think i want to spend more than 90 hours to try have a chance to clear blood palace, i tried with vergil and died at first boss lol. Gonna tick it as completed, although Im not sure if Im gonna uninstalled it yet since it is currently my best game to play with my beloved game controller. Complete the story mode 3 times made me kinda understand why people disliked DMC 4 (you fighting the same boss 3 times throughout 20 levels... wth)

3. Paladin
Replay back the game abit after couple of months hiatus. Gosh now there is even more champions and new currency for the game. It is almost as become as mobile free to play game (wait it is free to play...).At least there are more incentive to play ranked mode rather than casual, although i dont think im gonna go that route.I still have performance issue with the game and I dislike playing with other people + mic / voice chat. Lets see if im willing to do daily grind or not, my playskill was really rusty.


Looking back at my backlog, I got way too much RPG game that required more than 50 hours each... that i havent completed...Thx fully that recent humble bundle are a bit... not something that I wanted (waiting for upcoming tuesday for another new bundle). I should tackling one of them at least everyday :(

*To reward whoever are still reading this thread, I have link for a decent game from Capcom, called Strider. It is decent action / hack / slash / platformer / metrovania game that can be play with keyboard / controller. One of the best in its genre and better if you like to speed run it.
Please claim only if you are interested to play it and say something if you did claim it so nobody else will try to claim it.

Tsundere , Espresso and gore. The finer things in life.

edit :

Started my blind playthrough on the hardest difficulty setting on launch day because yolo , just beat the game. 14 hours, i might go for a speedrun tomorrow or something to get under 4 or 5 hours now that i know where to go , what to expect , boss phases , etc.

Also, this turned out to be a really good survival horror game, i was expecting something on the "decent" margin , but its surprisingly pretty good. My only gripe with it is that it leans a bit more on combat gameplay than The Evil Within 1 , but the devs managed to nail the psychological horror pretty well at least. 8/10

Finished 3 more games, and went through a lot of games that was in my steam backlog. atm majority of them are not something that i want to play casually without needing to learn all of the game mechanic.

1. Nekopara vol 2
Mostly just the continuation of the series. Basically each volume focus on relationship with 2 of the catgirls (Chocola and Vanilla in 1st vol, and Azuki + Coconut for 2nd vol). There arent anything special beside the beautiful animation with the VN engine. Getting all achievements was super easy since it just a kinetic VN (no route / branching).Atm, im guess i already got what i wanted from buying whole tier 3 of humble bundle (there are couple of more better VN but im just gonna install 1 VN game at 1 time)
There is H-patch and sex scenes if you are into that, just search for it online.

2. Neverending Nightmares
If you watched many online lets play, chance are you will already seen this game. It have very unique artstyle with monotone colour with minor splash of red. But if you asked me, I wouldnt recommend it since most of the time, the gameplay is just walking through multiple scenes while dodging some enemy in some area. Since there is no life system, you are pretty gonna just continue the game from nearby room. There is seem some story for it but mostly doesnt make sense at all aside from giving you shock factor. (My recommendations? Try silence of the sleep or distraint instead)

3. Shadow Warrior 2013
Gosh finally I finished this game after so long time. I dunno if choosing hard difficulty was a good choice or not, but since this game is kinda like old style shooter, it feel like you are going around arena to arena with mix n match of different encounter combination of enemy. Story wise is almost engaging but since it was delivered mostly via cinematic so you doesnt feel much connection with the story (except with your partner Hoji since he tend to barter around conversation with the main character, Lo Wang). The game do have skill progression, varied choice of weapons and powerful melee katana, but I do feel that the game kinda draggy with hour long chapter. Mostly maybe the problem that enemy is kinda like bullet sponge, deal a lot of damage, some enemy required you to shoot on specific weak spot and healing while running away because you took too much damage. I probably just recommend to go for normal difficulty or casual if you just wanted to finished the story. Enemy health and dmg scaled a bit too high (not sure about enemy count).

If you interested with my current steam backlog category. Random fact : I started collecting games from steam summer 2015 (around 2 years + 5 months now)
