First progress update of the year and loads of updates and games played as I had some playing time over the holidays.
New game pickups
- Gran Turismo Sport Digital Deluxe Edition (PS4)
- Inside (Xbox)
- Unravel Yarny Bundle (Xbox)
- Wolfenstein II: The Freedom Chronicles (Xbox)
- Undertale (PC)
- Refunct (PC)
- The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (3DS)
A number of new games picked up in the Christmas/New Year sales. That said I only spent about £30 on the above, as I had £20 in Microsoft vouchers. My one physical purchase was a Legend of Zelda game on 3DS but at only just over £10 seemed bit of a bargain.
Been playing (Grouvee)
- Forza Motorsport 7
- Gran Turismo Sport
- Dear Esther: Landmark Edition
- Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
- FTL: Faster Than Light
- Unreal Tournament
A lot of games started or played this month. I tried Forza Motorsport 7 again to compare to Gran Turismo Sport which I have just started. Fair to say both are great games that I need to play much more. I also started Ashen as this has recently hit Xbox Game Pass. Although early I feel like Dark Souls-lite or an easier Dark Souls is fairly apt.
Over the holidays I played some of the indie games in my backlog. I’ve reviewed Dear Esther: Landmark Edition, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and FTL: Faster Than Light. I still need to spend time with Hammerwatch. I wrote about what drove me to try Unreal Tournament and I’ve been trying to get into Overwatch recently.
Completed, Abandoned & Shelved
Completed Dear Esther: Landmark Edition, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Rage. I probably won’t be that far behind in finishing with Hammerwatch or FTL but still want to play these games a bit more. Anyway off to a good start to 2019. Also I have shelved Hearthstone as I am just not playing at the moment.
So 3 games completed and 1 game shelved this month!
Loads of the stuff on the site. SSL encryption now fully enabled and upgraded PHP behind the scenes. Also did a number of minor edits and tidying up the site including: tiding up tags on some of the reviews and added a summary of games trackers to new Backlog page (was called rules before). I also tidied up my Grouvee shelves and games.
A few games on Xbox Game Pass I’d like to try. Also a number of games I stopped playing that I would like to return to.
