  1. Recently completed video games

    I played through Anatomy yesterday. It was very creepy and I've never been so pleased to live in a small flat rather than a large house...
  2. Infinifactory: Like Spacechem in 3D

    Yeah, I did the same actually. But it all came back pretty fast and after a couple of levels I jumped back to where I had left off. I just solved a level in the most unsatisfactory way possible: Hastily fixing a single last problem accumulated several others, and fixing those of course accumulated even more problems. Now that I finally got it all working the machine has gone from (somewhat) sleak and efficient to ridiculously wasteful. And that is almost more frustrating than a straight up failure!
  3. Infinifactory: Like Spacechem in 3D

    I just unlocked the second part of the campaign (so to speak) and this game is bloody brilliant! The process of first learning to assemble smaller modules and then using them as parts in more and more complex solutions is fascinating. This is easily the best free form problem solving game I've ever played.

    I finally finished Stephen's Sausage Roll yesterday. It took me about 30 hours and it was perfect. It would've been my favorite puzzle game ever if it wasn't for The Witness.
  5. Samorost 3?!

    Aaaand I just beat it. Great game.
  6. Samorost 3?!

    I've played a good chunk of this now and it is really good! Sad to see that it doesn't get more recognition.
  7. Do You Have a Preferred Perspective for Games?

    It mostly depends on what type of game I'm playing. But I sometimes struggle with motion sickness while playing in first person, so when I get to choose I mostly go with the third person option.
  8. Maximum Axiom Verge Urge

    Yes, I found it shortly after. Really enjoyed the feeling of getting lost though. After playing through Guacamelee last week (which was nothing but a hunt for question marks on the map), Axiom Verge feels like a salvation in that regard.
  9. Maximum Axiom Verge Urge

    I've beaten three bosses and now I'm very stuck.
  10. The latest game from my favourite Belgian duo Tale of Tales was released today and it's quite the thing. You play as an educated engineer, trapped as a housemaid to a ridiculously rich art collector. You clean his house once a week and from his well-protected penthouse you watch the world burn beneath without having any possibilty to interfere. Sunset makes me feel really exposed and powerless and it's just great. It uses similar story telling techniques as Gone Home but uses them to tell a far more sophisticated and nuanced story. And it lets you put your own mark on the story through your passive relationship to your employer! Have anyone else hade the chance play this? If so, what do you think?

    I played through the single player campaign of Nidhogg in the lack of online opponents. It looses most of its tension while playing against the computer, but the combat is still bloody entertaining.
  12. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    Just beat the game too and aside from some bummer puzzles I really liked it. The wiring puzzle made me really frustrated though. It felt out of place, as it was so much harder than anything else in the game.

    I beat The Order 1886 earlier today and uuh... I liked it. I'm quite surprised actually. The shootouts tended to be quite dull but I liked the flow of the game. It was a nice and pretty action adventure to consume lazily and then forget about. And I don't think that's a bad thing per se (even though there are of course more worthwhile stuff to put your time into).
  14. Zunless Zee (Sunless Sea)

    Now that I've sinked a few more hours into the game, I'd say that's probably true, yes
  15. Zunless Zee (Sunless Sea)

    Oh, that's a bit disappointing. But whatever, it's a great game!
