Gaming in June.

This month, I haven’t played as many games as I normally do, but let’s take a look at what I did manage to play!

What gaming update post of mine would complete without an Assassin’s Creed game? Yes, I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate but I’ve been taking my time and really just enjoying the experience. In fact, I’m only on memory sequence 4; but with all the side activities, I knew this game would take some time to get through. Still, I loving zip lining and free running through London, so you’ll be seeing more of Syndicate in next month’s post.

Next up is my Backlog Attack game, The Darkside Detective. This is a point and click adventure game in which you play as Detective Francis McQueen, who is tasked with solving all the city’s supernatural mysteries. Initially, I really enjoyed the game but I soon found it to be quite repetitive and the humour to be quite bad. I’ll be posting a full review over on the Upon Completion blog, so head over there for my full opinion.

Apart from those two games, I’ve only been dabbling in some other games including: Slay the Spire, Baldur‘s Gate: Enhanced Edition and 911 Operator. I also picked up Wargroove in the Steam sale, which reminds me a little of the Fire Emblem series.

And that’s really all the gaming I did in June. I did say I didn’t play a lot of games! Fingers crossed, I’ll play more in July! So, what have you been playing? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll talk to you soon!

  1. This past month I did another quick run through Super Mario World, then have been playing Stardew Valley ever since! I have a feeling I’ll be playing it for at least a while longer as I have a ton of things I still plan on doing!

  2. Let’s see… I bought Train Fever on a Steam Sale way back in March, and finally got around to playing it. And now, I’m glad I only spent a couple of bucks. First, because it’s a dead game… It’s really only a beta for their flagship product. Second, because it was so simple I “beat” it within about 20 hours of gameplay. (You can’t really “beat” a sim game *per se*, but you can exhaust it’s possibilities.)

    I’ve been playing heck out of Idol Manager. In the last couple of weeks I actually managed to get my talent agency into the black w/o using cheat keys. OTOH, I could argue that cheating for cash let me figure out how all the moving parts meshed together and let me learn the game in “sandbox” mode.

    Also, in this context, I have to say I hate the use of the term “cheat” for this kind of thing… I don’t think you can actually cheat in a single player game. Sure, your achievements are less than other players who do things the “hard” way – but that’s not the same thing.

    1. I hate it when developers just abandon a game. I remember investing quite a bit of time in Chronicle: Runescape Legends but the developers never really added anything to it after its first major update.
      ‘Cheats’ in single player games are OK, as it only affects your experience, if it was in a multiplayer game, that’s a different story. I remember a time when a lot of single player games had ‘cheats’ in them. In some ways, they helped increase the amount of time I would play a game.
