My Shopping List–Casual Games are Great!

My apologies for the lack of posts.  I have been busy with songwriting lately. However, I managed to complete Root Letter, a game which I grew fond of and I enjoyed the genre a lot (visual novel games).   For one, I  enjoy books and a good story. Visual novel games have it all for me at the moment: light gameplay and not too mentally strenuous.  Because after a long day, the last thing I want to do is play a difficult game.  I must say I am very happy with my time management for games. I learned that opting for casual games actually balanced my stress level.  But I must confess, I do get the urge to play more difficult games from time to time.

Due to a decrease in gaming time, I became somewhat of a game collector. Still looking for those hidden gems but probably will not enjoy it to its max. So I’ll share a list of games that I have been looking at:

  1. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games

Nonary

2. Exist Archive : The Other Side of the Sky

Exist Archive

3. Assault Suit Leynos

Assault

I know most of them are Playstation games. I am not at all bias towards a particular gaming platform, I just can’t afford to own every systems at the moment and have time to appreciate it.  And my gaming passion is not about collecting games,  I am actually collecting ideas. We are living in the Information Age and I just happened to grow up in a video game culture just like many of you folks. New ideas are not dead–they are just delivered in the form of video games.

My final thought for the post, I’m almost done with Nier Automata, my brother and friend are bugging me about the game because I am taking forever to complete it.  I have a lot of things to say about it, but it takes time to gather my thoughts.  I am a bit overwhelmed with the game because it’s so philosophical.  Big concepts require time to digest. I am finding myself more and more taking frequent breaks to pause and reflect on what I am playing (I do this with books as well).   I will not 100 percent the game because I just don’t have time.   But my next post will surely be about Nier Automata.

Until next time, thanks for reading!

 

 

 

 

December Gaming

It’s been awhile since I post something. I don’t have the energy to game religiously as I used to when life was more carefree. 🙂 But games are not too far from mind. It still occupies most of my thoughts when I get bored. And oh boy, there are a lot of games to play but not all them are worth the time. I have to be selective and try to mix games up so I don’t get burnt out playing the same old thing. Here are some games I really want to take the time to appreciate.

1.

night-cry

If you enjoyed Clock Tower series, then this game might be worth your time. I am surprised that it got a low rating from Destructoid. I never trust game reviews, considering people have different taste in games. I will play it and see whether I like it. I miss games from the PS2 era.

2.

ikaruga

This is a ‘shoot em up’ game. It is very beautiful and the soundtrack is nice. Can play single  or co-op. Co-op might be fun, I wonder if I could play with random people because   most of my friends are casual gamers.  This type of game is not appealing to them.

3.

Resident-Evil-4-.jpg

I played Resident Evil 4 on PS2, and surprisingly enjoyed it very much. So I bought PS4 version. I am looking forward to the mercenaries mode.

I will quit making a list for now since December is ending within weeks and the New Year is approaching. I highly doubt I will finish these games. But if I don’t make a list and focus I will never finish these games I want to enjoy so much.  But of course, my life is not revolved around these games. They are just great companions when I need a break 🙂

Anyway, hope you all enjoy the holidays with your  love ones. Take care! 😀
