Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Definitive Edition
Reviewed: Feb 26, 2022
6.00

In my quest to find games similar games to DOS 1&2, Kingmaker kept being recommend as a similar game. So, I really wanted to like this game, but I felt it was average. Mods for the game helped me enjoy it a little bit more.

The graphics were decent, except when some of the companions designs looked almost identical. I would sometimes need to look at the portraits to know which character I was controlling.

Sound and music were pretty good, but nothing memorable. However, I loved most of the voices of the characters, especially Jaethal's and Nyrissa' voices.

The game started with RTWP, but luckily it had a TB option. However, I began using RTWP towards the end of the story, because the game became boring. The characters were slow and the angles of the camera were frustrating. Which, the mods helped deal with those problems.

The game was fun for a few hours, but it became repetitive and the kingdom building did not add much entertainment for me.

If people enjoy this game, it has many options to choose different classes and paths towards beating the game.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

I liked Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2, and DQXI looked beautiful. So, I was expecting to really like this game. When it came out in Japan, I was hyped up and waited over a year to play this game. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the anticipation I had for the game. It is generic and feels bland. The protagonist and most of the companions feel the same. I was about 40% to 50% into the story, but I just could not force myself to continue anymore. I really wanted to like this game.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA

Picked this game up on a whim, probably because of the box art. Though it is number 8, I never heard of any YS games. I really enjoyed the game for the setting and lore, but the lovable characters won me over. As the story progressed, I began liking the main character (Adol) and his companions. Then, the second character (Dana) of the box art shows up unexpectedly. I knew that both stories would somehow connect, but it did not seem organic. However, towards the end of the game it all makes sense and felt in love with Dana. Do not want to spoil, but some may find the ending a little sad.

Valkaria Chronicles was a great game, but this one not so much. I did not care for the story or any of the characters in 4. I still remember characters from 1, which I played years ago. I played this one a couple of years ago, but only remember Fenrir. Not sure if I finished it, but I was in double digit chapters.

Never heard anything about it, until I found it while shopping. It was on sale, so I took the risk. I found this to be a hidden gem. It starts off as a typical FPS, and was about to drop it. However, it kept sucking me in and I continued playing. The weapons and tech have interesting functions that help defeat enemies in various ways, which makes it fun. The puzzles are repetitive, but somewhat clever. The game does not take itself too seriously, but the story is actually deeper than it seems. Unfortunately, the game is a little linear and too short. I was hoping for a second game, but I guess it will not happen.

Dishonored
Reviewed: Oct 11, 2021
8.00

This game reminds me of Thief, but I prefer this one. Dishonored is a First-Person action Assassins Creed game, but stealthier. Setting of this game is Victorian era, mixed with Dieselpunk, which had a unique feel at the time. Love the powers you are able to use to during the story, which can help you kill enemies or boost a stealthier walkthrough. It has its flaws, like it may become too easy at times or the story takes a twist all of a sudden. However, overall I enjoyed playing this game.

Bioshock Infinite
Reviewed: Oct 11, 2021

I was really excited to play this game, especially since it was being well received. However, after completing the game, it never felt like a Bioshock game. When I think of Bioshock, I think of Big Daddies, and Big Sisters, not religious zealots. Rapture felt creepy and intense, Columbia is beautiful and bright. It had a convoluted story that tried to be deeper than it was. The time and space plot seem to come out of nowhere, I do not believe it was hinted at all in the previous two games.

Infinite was not a bad game, it may be a good game if it was a stand alone game. Maybe since it was not a bad game, it made people think it was better than it was.

Never heard of this game, until I heard or saw it as a recommendation. It was confusing in the beginning, but as I progressed through the story, many parts started to make sense. I just knew that I had to save my "daughter." The world is gloomy, and most storylines are depressing. Yet, fun and intriguing. Towards the end, you find some messed up background about the shades. There is also other weird parts in this world. After finishing the game, I was hoping to continue Nier Gestault's story, but was disappointed.

I played this game a long time ago, but I do remember liking it a lot. I was looking forward to a part two, which did not happen. From what I remember, it felt like Uncharted (platforming) and Last of Us (environment). When I played Horizon, it reminded me of this game a little. The future looks like the past, except for robotic enemies roaming the world. The main characters, Monkey, Trip and Pigsy were likeable, but Monkey and Trip's relationship should have been developed more. The ending felt like there were some loose ends, that is why I was looking for part two.

Waited years for this game! Maybe I grew out of it, but it was disappointing. I was not invested in the game, and did not finish it. I gave it a higher rating, because the intro and song was great!

I was briefly invested in the game, and quickly became bored. With how much I loved the first game, the sequel was a disappointment. The kingdom building would have made it better, but it was generic. The story or characters were not as good as in the first game.

This is my first isometric RPG game. Which, never caught my attention, so I avoided Isometric games. Despite that, I finally decided to give it a try. I am glad I did, because it became one of my favorite games. Loved the characters, the music, fights and most of the story. If it was not for the final act, I would probably give this game a perfect score (rare for me).

It was a good game, but not a great game as it was hyped to be. It is a beautiful game and has great characters. It does become repetitive at times, especially the side quests. I was going to rate is lower, but the final fight was great. All the actions and emotions that led to the final fight, probably the most emotions I felt in an ending of a fight.

Most GTA games are great, and this one is no different. I like that you are able to play as three different characters. Yet, this is not my favorite GTA game. I did not find it as memorable as San Andreas, or GTA III and IV.

This game was so frustrating in the beginning, that I almost stopped playing it. I died more times in the first five minutes, than I have died in most games combined. Luckily, I continued playing and it became one of my favorite games of all time. The story was great and the lore was awesome and unique for a video game (Lovecraftian elements). This game helped me gain an interest in the Dark Souls games. Apparently, the Dark Souls games were also difficult. However, after playing Bloodborne, I found those games easy.

NieR Gestalt was one of my favorite PS3 games. So, I was looking forward to playing Automata. Plus, it was receiving many great reviews, so it should have been a great game. The visuals and combat were great, but I could not care for the characters or story. So, after 20+ hours, I dropped the game. I read online that you should play routes B and C, etc. Which, makes no sense! If I could not get into a game after 20+ hours, what is the point of continuing? I have a backlog of games and not enough time, so why waste my time on a game that does not keep me entertained? In this case, I might as well buy the remastered NieR Replicant.
