Playing through my steam library #1 – A

I got the idea for this from a series on YouTube called Steam Train where they try to play through everything on their steam account. I have way too many games anyways so it is a bit ambitious of me to take this one but I’ll give it a go. I won’t be playing through sandbox/strategy games because some of them never end, and it would take ages. So, I suppose this is just notes for myself, so I can look back and see which games I did play, which ones I enjoyed and not. If I didn’t like the game, I have most likely removed it from my steam library for good so this will be like a cleanup too.

Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends

It’s a point and click puzzle game, set in Prague. You play as Eva, the long lost daughter of some Nobleman who has been tricked to come to Prague. You then discover some devious plot where a man has been brought to life and so on and so forth. The voice acting wasn’t great, the visuals were okay and the puzzles weren’t too demanding. Could be better, but I have also played worse games. I’ll give it a 4/10.

AlternativA

Another game set in Prague, but this time in an apocalyptic-ish world. It’s another point and click game and I can’t really say I got into it all that much. It just wasn’t interesting enough to catch my attention. The voice acting for the main character was okay but the rest wasn’t as good. I’ll have to give it a 3/10.

Anna: Extended Edition

This is another puzzle game, but it’s more of a walking simulator/exploration game. The visuals are great, the story is kinda creepy and it has multiple endings. Some require very specific things to be done while others can happen on accident, so it does kind of have some replay value. It is a bit slow though so for me it’s just mediocre. I’ll give it a 5/10.

Anodyne

Anodyne is a pixel graphic rpg/puzzle game. Basically you go through quests and solve various puzzles, and it’s a really charming game. It’s not the best in the world but it has its strong points. I’ll give it a 6/10.

Antichamber

This is a super trippy game where you move from room to room, and every room will change around you. It’s kinda psychedelic, kinda fun and you always end up in the most random rooms. It does kinda give me a headache though but it’s alright. 5/10.

Arcane Worlds

This is like a sandbox exploration and crafting game. What separates it from other games like this is that you fly, and you collect mana to craft spells who in turn creates objects in your world. It’s not bad, it’s still in Alpha though so it’s by no means a finished game. I’ll give it a 5/10 for now.

ArcaniA: Fall of Setarrif

ArcaniA feels like one of those old school rpg games. The graphics are outdated, the controls are a bit wonky but it is a solid game. It could use some improvements though so for that I’ll give it like a 4/10. If they remade it I’m sure it would be awesome.

Arx Fatalis

I remember why I haven’t played this one now.. It literally won’t launch. 0/10

Aura: Fate of the Ages

This is an old point and click / adventure game. The graphics are super dated, the controls are a bit bad but it was entertaining to play. It’s mostly just clicking on machines and figuring out symbols and colors and whatnot to make it work. It’s not the best game I’ve played but also not the worst. I’ll give it a 4/10.

Avencast

Avencast is a game about a magic school, where a mage has to do classes, then help defend the school when demons attack. It looks super dated and the dialogue isn’t too great. But it was good back in the day when it came out, it just hasn’t aged well. 4/10

Aviary Attorney

This is a game inspired by Ace Attorney. It has a visual novel kind of style where everything seems to be hand drawn. You play as JayJay Falcon, an attorney whose work is to gather evidence and defend various clients in court. It’s quite humorous and plays well. I’ll give it an 8/10.

April summary

Some things I have been loving this month, which includes

nothing,nowhere

I fell fast and quite hard a few months back and it has been a constant love since then. Got concert tickets booked for October, looking forward to that. His new album dropped in the middle of April and it’s great. This still remains one of my favorites though, from his first album.

 

The Bioshock series

Been playing through Bioshock 1, most of Bioshock 2.. I say most because towards the very end the game kept glitching and crashing and it was literally unplayable.. Then I started Bioshock Infinite and I’m a couple of hours into that one. They’re quite interesting, and they really make me question our reality and what our world will evolve into in the future. Though I would not recommend the games if you can’t handle jumpscares, or little girls. It is quite creepy indeed.

 

My new succulents

They’re quite adorable! And they were quite expensive but I was in dire need of new plants because most of mine had gotten so old and just couldn’t go on anymore. They all fit nicely in my window sill and I look forward to watching them grow.

I’ve been trying to read more but I’m in a real slump still.. I’ve probably read about four chapters of a book and that’s it for April. it really sucks, I hope I want to read again soon because I miss it a lot.

What have you loved in April?
