1st game of the year already. I'm off to a good start!

Major Mayhem

Major Mayhem is a parody of action movies and looks like something that would come out of South Park; I'm not sure if that was intended. It's a fun little on-rails shooter, but unlike most of them, it has a side-scrolling perspective, instead of a first person one. It can be a great game in short bursts and it isn't a particularly long one. It sports some very simple controls, to the point that it is entirely controllable by mouse; shoot with the left click, jump with the right click or press no buttons to stay in cover. By killing enemies and completing stages, you can collect money that you can spend on clothing (purely cosmetic, but everyone would like to dress like Chuck Norris or Rambo) or power-ups (that can be activated by clicking on the power-buttons on the lower-left screen). Use all these to bring Mayhem to the foes of Freedom!

The only thing that I didn't really like was hiding new guns behind quasi-achievements and giving no option to purchase them with the coins you collect. I always hate it when developers do that.

Let the list officially commence!

Broken Sword 5 (2nd jan 11:30am)

its ok, better than the 3rd and may be the fourth but it is nothing compared to 1 and 2. Too many camos from the first two games and George hates goats for some reason.

Just finished my first game for this year - Crystal Caves. Whoops, I tarnished my childhood memories.

There's some some really nasty stuff in Volume 3. Such as, a pit in the hub world that you can't get out of, so, I cheated my way out instead of having to reload and redo a bunch of levels. I usually would feel bad about cheating, but fuck this game...well, specifically Volume 3. The first volume is fairly breezy, the second gets pretty hard, the third is filled with some nasty shit.

So, um, my recommendation is to just play the shareware version :P
Include me.

My 2014 list. I hope to finish more and longer games this year, but as a bio-engineering student, I suspect time won't be my best friend.

#1 Medieval 2: Total War - Teutonic Campaign (05/04)
Post edited April 05, 2015 by sibberke
It's time to get the train rolling. The first game I've played and beaten this year, is...

Super Time Force Ultra. Well, it shouldn't come as a surprise to those who got the pun in the opening sentence. If I had to describe the game with only one adjective, that adjective would be - crazy. Basically, the whole game revolves around time: at first, you're just one guy, jumping and shooting at bad guys. But when you die (or if you decide to pause and rewind manually), you pick a new guy and continue playing. The twist? The earlier incarnation is still in there, repeating the actions you did. When you do this enough times, you've got yourself a small army, just plowing down anything and everything on your path, like giants crushing ants. For example, whenever a boss battle starts, you'd be hard-pressed to make even a dent on the boss; but when there's a dozen or more of you shooting at it at the same time, it will go down in seconds. One could argue that this inherently makes the game really easy, since you can simply rewind after death and block the fatal hit with a shield or something. Well, they aren't wrong, but I don't think it's necessarily a flaw: the whole point of the game is exactly this, basically, and I thought it wasn't as much about the challenge as it was about simply having fun and watching as your power exponentially grows in each incarnation.

So the gameplay is really, really fun, but I was happy to find out that the game was also really funny. Before I even began to play it, I thought about whether it would be super serious or super over-the-top. It's the latter - the plot never takes itself seriously (going to medieval times to find The Grail, just so that it could be given to a medieval-themed restaurant, that's financially struggling but happens to be the team leader's favorite restaurant, in the present?!) and I think I prefer it this way. Anything can happen in this game.

In conclusion, I think this was a very good game to start 2015 with. Fans of good humor and good action platforming should definitely give this one a go.
Include me. Beat a little more than a dozen games last year, some technical problems halted some of my projects, I hope to have a better year this time.

I've completed my first game this year. Major Mayhem.

I already had this game through a Groupees bundle but only after I learned about it anew thanks to Grargar I played it.
The "story" is very short but there are a lot of other challenges. I got most of the medals in classic mode, completed the 150 Objectives and got 40% of the achievements. After that it started to become repetive and boring, so I stopped.

The game itself is an over the top side-scrolling rail-shooter with a few platforming elements. There a quite a few different weapons which all have there uses, though I never managed to handle the grenade launcher and the chicken cannon well.

Here's my list. (Is it a list with just one entry?)
1. Hack 'n' Slash - First DF game I've finished. It was.... unique, which is what attracted me about it. But still a little bit disappointing overall. Even though the game gets much more harder in terms of the pseudo-programming aspects in the 2nd half, the problem with the game is that it gives you a crapload of code line detail, but the puzzle solutions are not to that level, so there's a disconnect between what you think you're supposed to do and what you actually need to do.
2. Primordia - Really enjoyed this AGS point and click, although some puzzles were a little obtuse, and it wasn't always clear you could move to certain parts of the screen and have it scroll more. It was definitely made with a lot of love and care.
3. Outlast Whistleblower - DLC prequel to the horror hit. Narrative and horror elements bits are interesting, and the locales are mostly different parts of the building from the main game, including more exterior sections. But on the whole, the game feels pretty much the same. I would have liked some new mechanic personally, but if more of the same sounds good, then this game has got it.
4. Darwinia - Interesting RTS. I didn't "get it" at first, but I gave it a shot. It's not like any other game I've played before, and you get the sense that the developer set up the scenarios because they thought they would be cool. And it is!
5. Hotline Miami 2 - Loved the first, loved the second. It is the same but different. It's different but the same. Not sure why people dislike it so much, except that they were expecting exactly the same. But where's the fun in that?
6. Hotline Miami - Interestingly enough, I went and replayed the original HM having not touched it in years. I guess it IS different. The stages, the weapon timing, the stealth level... Strangely it's kinda easier than the sequel, but kinda harder too. That being said, I think I enjoy HM2 more of the two. It's got more character overall.
7. Gabriel Knight - Sins of our Fathers - .First time playing it. Great story and setting, but some of the gameplay elements (cryptic puzzles, UI, pixel hunting) are a remnant of its time. The pixel art and animation, though, it outstanding, and really has a lot of detail. Overall, really enjoyed it.
8. Cinders - Relatively short visual novel with a lot of choices and endings. Which means it's a visual novel. I liked the "Western" take on it, which is a little twist of a well known tale where every character is flawed. It's also nice that the game gives you indicators to show how your current dialog is a result of previous choices made. I still haven't found a major track of the game, via my choices, so I'll keep playing!
9. Runaway 2 - The Dream of the Turtle - The animation and production values are clearly higher than the first game. I sort of get why this is the least liked of the series, but since it's a build up to the final installment, I have no qualms with it. I'd have to say that the very end of the game is annoying though.
10. Runaway 3 - Twist of Fate - Huh. I actually found this to be my least favorite entry. On the plus side, they made the UI better, where you could see what you can interact with. They also gave a hint system to give you some insight into your next step. But it kinda removed all the characters from the previous series, and did not exactly continue on the cliffhanger from Runaway 2. And the English VAs were all different. It just felt like an entirely different game where they tried to tie into the previous two very loosely. And the hint system is probably a must, because this has the most cryptic puzzles of all the games. At least it's over.
11.A Story About My Uncle - Interesting 3D platformer with grapple. In some ways, as cool as I thought it would be, but in others, it's also somewhat simplistic.
12. Legend of Grimrock - Loved it. Tons of objects/places to discover and even though I completed it, I missed quite a lot of secrets. I'd love to see what Grimrock II holds.
13. Before the Echo (Sequence) - Changed names recently due to a legal dispute, but it's DDR meets RPG meets juggling sorta? Throw in some Ronald Jenkees and you've got a game that's better than it has to be. Enjoyable, but then again, I like all of the above.
14. Gabriel Knight 2 - The Beast Within - Didn't know what it'd be like with a FMV transition, but I really quite enjoyed this one. The mixing of history with the fictitious story made for edutainment too.
15. Deadly Premonition Director's Cut - Janky as hell and crashes for no reason. Controls completely give out on the last boss fight for PC-only. The actual gameplay isn't really that fun either, with the same enemies throughout the game. But the story was genuinely enticing and gave me the creeps at times. Glad I played it.

As of 11/30/2015
