A quick rundown.

Return of the Obra Dinn (PC) – finished

One of the best and most refreshing games I’ve played in recent years. It’s a game that i can recommend to almost anyone. I started a second play through to see what hints i missed the first time. Although i did miss things i’m not very likely to continue this second play through. Must


Baba is You (Switch) – currently playing 

Another game that tries to do things differently and succeeds. The kind of puzzle game that makes you feel smart for finding the solution but never stupid for failing. I got stuck for a couple of days on a few levels and then one day i breezed through all of them. Funny how the brain works. You always have a few open levels to try and it’s very important because whenever you feel frustrated at 1-2 there are always others you can try. Highly recommend


Bye Bye BoxBoy (3DS) – currently playing

I’ve really enjoyed my time with this series. Bye Bye is the 3rd game (the 4th was released last week on the Switch which has added co-op for the first time) and although i still find it enjoyable, it has started to feel samey. I play just 1-2 levels every couple of days. Recommend

The Legend of Zelda (Switch) – burned out and unfinished?

After 150hrs+ i feel burned out and feeling bad about not finishing it. Brilliant game and i hope i find the motivation and desire soon to continue playing it.

Nintendo 3DS

2013-06-21 17.52.10

On Friday, i succumbed to my “wants” and went out and bought a Nintendo 3DS. It was and is a guilty purchase since i’m not that into gaming anymore so i don’t know how much value i will get out of it and also it does not feel like the best of times to be spending money on hand helds.

But in the end i got it from Public, together with basically the game that sold the 3DS to me, Fire Emblem: The Awakening. It’s a strategy RPG. Very japanese. Very otaku. Very geeky. And I’m loving in.

I’ve put it a total of around 14-15hrs into it but only progressed around 7hrs. The first 2-3hrs i started on a level that was way too easy and decided to restart. The remaining hours were spent on failed missions.

The battery does not seem to last that long, maybe due to the relatively high 3D setting i have it on which is actually not a bad thing. This keeps me more in control with how much time i spent on it at a time. Because when playing games, time just flies by without noticing it.

It feels like a flash from the past, but not quite. I’m enjoying this immensely and all the stuff that come with it i.e. reading reviews, previews, news, checking out bargains and all the twitter talk. But it definitely does not have the same aura around it. At least not the way it used to. Now i want to split my time on other things and more evenly.

For the time being I’m having a blast with it.
