A game based on movies and a interactive movie game.

Lego Marvel's Avengers + Detroit: Become Human

 

Well, it's been...checks calendar... almost 2 months since the last time I've written here. I've been sidetracked by other games and events on other sites (damn my FOMO), but I'm back and focused on my list once again! Since my last completion, only 2 games have been completed.

 

Lego Marvel's Avengers is a LEGO game that is a direct retelling of both Year 1 and Year 2 of Marvel movies (From Captain America to Age of Ultron with some additionnal DLC). It has all the tropes of latter-day LEGO games, such as slightly buggy gameplay and too many collaectables, but didn't feel as terrible to play as Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. It's a good game, but only a medium recommendation.

 

Detroit: Become Human, on the other hand, was a treat to play/experience. In a slightly futuristic world, androids are common place and are a staple of every day life. The story is centered on 3 main characters: Kara, a maid-style android who has recently been rebooted to take care of a little girl named Alice, Marcus, an android left for dead who is trying to liberate his bretheren from servitude and to give them 'free will', and Connor, an android prototype who's assisting the police to try stopping android crimes and 'deviancy'.

 

As a Quantic Dream game, it's a story-driven game with a lot of QTE and choices that affect your story going foward. Characters can live or die depending on dialogue choices, QTE success/failure or relationship levels. On the technical front, this is a beautiful game with great graphics, really good aesthetics, that's pretty fun to go through on your first time as the choices mostly matter and the game even shows you how your path will diverge depending on what choices you make. In fact, the choices are actually so important that you can actually kill off 2 of your main characters and you just stop seing their side of the story.

 

Speaking of story, I personally felt that the story left me with widely varying feelings, some better than others. Story spoilers below.

Spoiler

Connor's story is definitively the best and actually presents really well the main crux of the game: can an android really become human? His relationship with Hank, a gruff detective who disdains androids, is really great and actually has some really touching moments on both extremes (The partnership/Cyberlife questioning if you're his friend and the sadness/suicide if you stay a machine).

 

On the other side, Kara's story is really poor and the Alice plot twist is really contrived/noncensical. I can see that they're doing a mothership story with her, but Kara is played so dumb and ACTUALLY KNOWS ALICE IS AN ANDROID SINCE THE BEGINNING really drags it down. It does have some good moments (the border event was actually really touching), but it's almost better just killing her off and not having to go through her story.

 

As far as Markus is concerned, it's a mixed bag. The game has good intentions with him, but it really beats you over the head with the racism/androids are basically black people story and it drags it down a bit. But, I really like the fact that you can do both sides of the MLK/Malcolm X coin and I still think the march is a great set piece.

Of the 2 Quantic Dreams games I've played (this and Heavy Rain), this is the better one, though I do have a soft spot for the murder mystery of Heavy Rain.

 

This brings my completed games total to 13/27. Next focus is my second long game for the event, Project Cars 2, so hopefully the online grind isn't too painful.

 

Also, as usual, the spreadsheet has been updated and some people are really close to their full completion already, but we still have 6 more months to go, so do not despair.

T (1 of 1 completed) - The Banner Saga

 

I haven't updated here in a while but here's a new completion!

 

I'm pretty sure I'd have delayed playing this game as I had before but I had enough reason to get to it now thanks to this event.  It is definitely a new favorite of mine and I'm looking forward to playing the sequels once I get around to it. 

 

My writeup would usually be longer for this one but I pretty much wrote it all on the recent platinum thread if you'd like to see.

June Update:

 

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  Q+ R  S  T  U  V  W  X  X+  Y  Z  Z+

 

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony 

Start: 02.05.2020 | Finish: 05.06.2020

VA-11 Hall-A

Start: 15.06.2020 | Finish: 29.06.2020

 

And there is like 6 months later. When I looked first at my list before start of this event, I was afraid that it will be hard to actually finish it on time, since I didn't know If I'll actually play them. This list was mosty about games that were interesting for me but somehow I couldn't start. Now, when I look at everything, I'm glad I'm participating in this event, because I could finally find motivation and play a lot of nice games. After all this time, I think that I could actually choose more "difficult" or time consuming ones, since even when I played not only games from this list I mostly dedicated myself with this event

So there are 6 months and 6 games left, so there is chance that I'll also touch my backup games when I'll finish all of my 29 games.

It's been a while since I last posted, and I'm still quite busy (and getting side tracked), so, it's unlikely that I will finish my list... But let's see how far I can get.. 

 

Since my last post, I believe that I finished for the event the following:

G - The Grand Tour: The Game 

D2 - Chaos on Deponia (EU) (D not completed yet)

 

I may continue to play Deponia for the time being (while I try to progress on Ride 2, Tales of Zestiria, Gems of War and Street Fighter V and maybe other games...).

Its been a good few months since I last posted in here. I've got plenty of gaming in, I've just not done anything on my list. Can't believe we're into the arse end of the year already. 

I started LOTR: Aragorns quest and should have that finished over the next couple of days. I'm off work next week so hopefully I can knock another couple off my list.

Street Fighting and Street Racing

I Am The Hero + Project Cars 2

 

 

Two more Plats on the board. First, the Ratalaika published indie brawler I Am The Hero. Story-wise, a mysterious figure only known as the hero appears in 'City' and wants to defeat 'Vilain'. Basically, no real story nor plot, but it does play with beat-em up tropes. Gameplay-wise, it's a very basic 2D brawler with no plane system nor a block button, so everything is mashing some combos and hope you don't get countered. Plat wise, the whole game is clearable in about 2 hours, but is not difficult to complete. No real depth or surprises about it; it really is a 5-10$ indie game that's okay, but nothing more.

 

Next, the racing simulator Project Cars 2. This game has a ton of depth if you're a simulator fanatic, but has enough assists to enable everyone to play it. It has a pretty good variety of racing styles (F1, Rally, Endurance, etc.) and a pretty good selection of cars and tracks. As far as the plat grind is concerned, the 350 online races are really annoying. Especially if you don't have a partner as most online players are doing 10 minutes minimum pro races, so it would take a while. The safety grind is also really boring, but at least it's grindable solo. Final playtime was 35 hours, so less than I expected.

 

That brings my completion to 15/27. Next project will be the apocalyptic escort mission that is Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.

At long last I'm done with Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

I was thinking of taking another break from it because it gets so repetitive doing the missions but decided to stuck with it because I was so close.

Glad to have the biggest game on my list done.

 

 

Beaten the story of Death Stranding but still have to do a lot of deliveries before I'm done.

Also started King Oddball which is pretty easy so far but I think the levels will get much harder.

 

 

 

Completed Letters: AE, J, G, L, P, RU, V, X, Z
