2016 – Possibly the worst year of my life in terms of what is going on in the world. While video games feel extremely secondary in the grand picture I still would like to highlight some the titles that helped me to briefly take my mind away from all the shit going on.
Lately few new games have caught my attention. I have come to enjoy these “lows” as they give me the chance to catch up a bit on the better games in the backlog. I used the last weeks to immerse myself in the now classic Braid and the infamous PC-version of Batman: Arkham City.
Once more I have let time fly with respect to the spacing in between wasdmash-content. Since the last blog I have managed to play more Ori and the Blind Forest, Adr1ft, FIFA 17, TIS-100, Starbound, Unravel and 911 Operator. Here is some thoughts on all of them.
Let’s review lists, for fun!
Today we conclude my summer games summary with a very recent surprise release, Another Metroid 2 Remake or AM2R. Less surprising is that the game is now significantly harder to play after Nintendo sent out their cease- and desist-team to take down the fan-remake.
In “My summer in games, part X” I will talk about the Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest. A previously Xbox One-exclusive metroidvania. I cheered for Shadow Complex Remastered, will the story be the same for Ori?
Only a couple of parts left of my summary of what I have played during the past summer. In this ninth part I talk a bit about the surprisingly great new Doom.
