|20XX||6||Rogue lite||Yes||PC||No||No||Early Access||Yes||Yes||-||0|
Fun to run through and def captured the feel of the MMX games, but I think players just bounced due to the art style
Surprise! They switched to a much more palatable art style.
|A Short Hike||Adventure||No||No||No||Yes||0|
|A2MR: Metroid 2 Remake||Metroid||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Really good, but hate the GBA soundscape and fast/overweight physics (missing the Super Metroid space feel)
Fun when it works, often has bugs and lag issues. Community imploded - game has a lot of unrealized potential. This should have been one of the most well-regarded alternative fighting games of all time for how cool the combat can be.
|Advanced Busterhawk Gleylancer||Shmup||No||No||No||Yes||0|
Good puzzle platformer, clean in mechanics and aesthetic. Short but sweet.
Cool and well thought out puzzle platformer but the difficulty leaps way beyond my low puzzling and precision platformer skills.
|Alice: Madness Returns||14||Adventure||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Cool art, good story, surprisingly good use of its mechanics.
|Animal Crossing: New Horizons||No||No||Yes||Yes||0|
Cute characters, comfortable world & soothing art, but surprisingly tedious - there's never any force multipliers or automators for anything you do, so each new thing you can do basically means abandoning progress and maintenance for everything prior. I think this was supposed to be a zen garden type game but it really feels like they're training you do deal with an ongoing sense of loss.
Surprisingly great card game. Looking forward to more matches
Started a bit slow but soon grows into some really great, endurance challenge style dungeon crawling akin to Demon Souls. Combat is a bit simple. Cool art & overall world structure, interesting story & cool characters.
|Assault Android Cactus||12|
Twin Stick Shooter
Awesome shmup. Still need to beat medulla. Great music, cool humor, Starch is the best.
Extremely heavy on the gritty chiptune sound. Bosses are disappointingly straightforward. Pretty alright otherwise.
|Baba is You||No||No||No||Yes||0|
I need to go back to this, but it overwhelmed me with how complex and clever the puzzles are. It's overall really cool, but I doubt I'll ever be able to complete it.
It wasn't as awful as I thought it might be.
|Banished||99||City Builder||No||PC||No||No||Early Access||Yes||Yes||ImJustRoids||-||0|
Was a bit disappointed how quickly your villagers will suddenly die out. Would like to play more.
Amazing, great narration.
Somehow I bounced off this. I think I just didn't get into the story and the theatrics sort of divided by zero - somehow too over the top I guess? Solid game and mechanics - I feel like I should give it another chance.
Need to go back to this now that it's complete - and now has super solid controller support I hear?
|Black Desert Online (Beta)||999||MMORPG||Yes||PC||No||Yes||Early Access||Yes||Yes||0|
Super rough dialogue/animations and gameplay was very grindy, but looks nice. Did the story get run through a localization blender?
Focused more on style and aesthetic than gameplay. Game moved way faster than the sub-30fps framerate could support. Would try again on PC/60fps
|Bloodstained Curse of the Moon||Metroidvania||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Incredibly well-executed old-school Castlevania. Might be my overall favorite old-school styled Castlevania-like.
|Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night||Metroidvania||No||PC||No||No||No||Yes||Yes||-||0|
While I miss the ridiculous orchestral elegance of SotN, this still is a very worthy followup to Dawn of Sorrow and Order of Ecclesia. Except the _final_ boss, which was kind of lackluster.
|Borderlands 2 DLC - Psycho Pack||FPS||No||PC||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Bulletta||-||0|
Psycho's got awesome dialogue
Little plain, but not terrible. Just a somewhat generic grindy fps
|Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons||4||Adventure||No||PC||Yes||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Ended surprisingly dark. Overall pretty good. Cool art, world, & story.
|Can't Drive This||No||PC||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Super fun, seems like the netcode got polished up in the release version. Not sure whether there's a ton of replay value but def worth picking up just for the chaos of coordinating between builder & driver.
Was really cool to see how puzzles and ability gating would apply to piloting such a strange creature. Cool story, art, & world.
|Castle in the Darkness||5||Metroidvania||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Frodanis||-||0|
Game drops a lot of inputs for some reason (?) - especially super important jumps. Leans a bit hard into unfair difficulty.
This is one of those games that got gifted to me that I wish I could return/refund. Didn't have any real interest in it and it was gifted to me for multiplayer stuff that fell through.
|Castlevania Lords of Shadow||20||Character Action||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Generally great gameplay, though it really needed a hitbox pass for combat + camera cleanup. Awful minigames and terrible story.
Amazing - great action puzzler and I'm still amazed that it hit EVO at one point.
Had some long grindy corridors in the map that I played. I think I agree with the overall sentiment that it would be better with a curated map rather than being randomly generated.
Great puzzles, very smooth difficulty curve. Would recommend the PC version unless you're really good with analog stick controls (also 30fps is a drag). Not sure how I felt about the humor.
|Cities: Skylines||31||City Builder||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||-||0|
Scratch that Simcity 2013 itch. Unfortunately, the traffic is god awful and pretty much un-solveable.
Probably played this as much as I ever will - good game but matches are really long, plus backseaters. I really like the idea, and wish I could get good enough at it + stream it comfortably.
Nearly the best spellcasting resource system (Ichor) of any Souls-like. Great system for builds & abilities. Interesting world and cool story twist.
|Cook, Serve, Delicious!||6||Puzzle||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Kind of a really elaborate take on Simon Says. Neat concept, but didn't quite hook me.
|Crypt of the Necrodancer||6||Rhythm||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
I feel like I needed to be extremely good at the game to enjoy it. It's good though.
Alien soldier with really high end mickey mouse animations? Sure.
Neat movement mechanic, nice art, amazing music
|Darius Burst Chronicle Saviours||Shmup||No||PC||Yes||No||Yes||Abandoned||Yes||-||0|
Makes me miss G-Darius. I miss the ridiculous boss battles in particular. Also, despite the large screen format being more true to the original, I feel like it's so zoomed out that I struggle to read the screen.
Overall good, but I think it's possible that I'm looking to relive my nostalgia with Darius Twin. Super difficult, and I should not have tried to play this for score via Shmup Book Club.
|Dark Dreams Don't Die||5||Interactive Story||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Darklliter||-||0|
Obscenely good. Really want another one.
|Dark Souls 1 (PTDE)||999||Souls||?||PC||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||4||PC||0|
One of my most-played games of all time.
|Dark Souls 2||999||Souls||Yes|
360, PC, PS3, PS4
Last run will be the pure caster playthrough
|Dark Souls 3||999||Souls||No||PC||No||Yes||No||Yes||Yes||0|
Needs a lot of mechanics work but it's alright.
|Dark Souls Artorias of the Abyss DLC||999||Souls||No||360||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||IsTheFridge||-||0|
Def one of the better expansions to a game.
|Darkest Dungeon||30||Rogue-lite||No||PC||No||No||Early Access||Yes||Yes||Gettinfries||-||0|
Great game, but I felt like I could never get a foothold long enough to make any real progress. Atmosphere is super depressing (despite being what I think is the intended experience).
Quite good - overhead souls with its own flavor. Combat is a little jank sometimes.
|Darksiders 1||16||Action RPG||No||360, PS3||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||0||0|
Good - sooo thoroughly a Zelda clone.
|Darksiders 2||30||Action RPG||Yes||PS4||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||0||0|
Better combat, story not as good. Drags on a bit later in the game. Randomized diablo/borderlands loot systems really turned me off though.
Awesome top-down horror. I need to do a proper playthrough of this - I had a couple of false starts and couldn't figure out if I wanted to stick with nightmare/permadeath difficulty.
|Dawn of War II: Retribution||10||RTS||No||PC||Yes||Yes||Yes||KeyLimePrime||0|
Good - little dry. I'd imagine Warhammer fans love this.
Really solid, moves at your own pace, combat feels great.
Overall pretty fun - enjoyed playing as a spellcaster. Had some rough points difficulty/platforming-wise. Really looking forward to the massive DLC.
Best story/lore and level design of the series, PvP is a rough hot mess.
All of the base mechanics are great, game looks really good. Needs singleplayer. Not a fan of multiplayer at all.
Played a bit with DomoStash earlier - overall seemed alright but I couldn't get into it.
|Deus Ex: Mankind Divided||29||FPS||No||PC||No||No||No||Abandoned||Yes||-||0|
I played a bit of this and realized something wasn't there that I missed from Human Revolution. I'm not quite sure if maybe I'm just done with the series or immersive sims or what.
Fast crazy and ridiculous - sound design is so good and I love the graphical style. Too intense for longer streams.
|Devil May Cry 4||14||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes|
Nero's gameplay was good. Dante's had too little payoff per investment.
Awesome art style and overall premise - super fun and exciting to play. Great music. Love the goofy presentation & characters, as well as how the story comes together the further you go.
Great, solid FPS. Reminds me of some of what I liked in HL2.
|Dishonored Knife of Dunwall||FPS||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Short but good, but I felt like it was so over-reliant on having just finished a playthrough that the difficulty felt super clumsy.
|Divinity: Original Sin||90||SRPG||No||PC||Yes||Yes||Yes||Abandoned||Yes||0|
Beginning of the game is great, but middle falls apart real quick. I hear enhanced edition is way better.
|Don't Starve + Reign of Giants||999||Survival||No||PC||?||Yes||Yes||Abandoned||Yes||Yes||0|
Quite good - really need to do adventure mode some time.
|Don't Starve + Shipwrecked||999||Survival||No||PC||?||No||Yes||Abandoned||Yes||0|
I really want to like it - just can't ever seem to get off the ground.
|Don't Starve Together||999||Survival||No||PC||?||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Diezen||-||0|
Little bit too chaotic for me. I think I need to find the right group to play with.
Second to last boss kind of sucked, everything else was pretty ridiculously good.
Overall pretty fun, although it I didn't initially fall into the rhythm for it.
Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist
A good weird romp but not nearly as good as Stanley Parable. I think a chunk of it might be that I'm not a fan of the rick and morty VO
|Dragon's Crown||27||Beat 'em Up||No||PS4||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||-||0|
Very repetitive, but Amazon was fun as hell. Really like the overall style and D&D esque feel
|Dragon's Dogma (PC)||40||Action RPG||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Senrab||0|
Fantastic port of a fantastic game.
|Dungeon of the Endless||999||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Rei.Dansei||0|
Pretty neat - might want to return to this for a full run at some point
Got lots of golds. Was a bit boring, good music.
Really good but lacking in content. Incredibly fun while it lasted.
|Enter the Gungeon||999||Shmup||No||PC||Yes||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Incredibly addictive, really great mechanics. Feel kind of like ti's hard to manipulate the RNG to win chamber 6 consistantly. Overall way better than Isaac.
|Environmental Station Alpha||10||Metroid||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Diezen||-||0|
Really good - looking forward to the sequel.
|Euro Truck Simulator 2||999||Simulation||No||PC||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Surprisingly not bad. Really wish I could've gotten that G27 though.
Great Star Fox feels - hope the release goes well.
|Exit the Gungeon||999||Shmup||No||No?||No||Yes||Yes||0|
Pretty solid translation of the game overall to 2d. Randomized guns make for much less pressure than Enter's constant hunt for good loot. Little easier as well.
|Fantasy Strike||999||Fighting Game||No||PC||Yes||Yes||Early Access||Yes||Yes||0|
Seems to remove all of the execution-heavy elitism of fighting games and immediately jump to the interesting strategic stuff. Played a bit and I'm wondering how much depth there is, but I also don't have a solid group of interested viewers to play with.
|Final Fantasy 15||60||RPG||No||PS4||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Characters are surprisingly realistic in how they behave, both in many of the scripted scenes and just wandering around.
|Final Fantasy X (international)||60||RPG||No||PS2||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
One of the first games I streamed. CTB is great and I intend to replay this one day.
|Five Nights at Freddy's||2||Horror||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Darkliter||-||0|
Great atmosphere & lore overall, but I'm definitely not into jump scares.
|Five Nights at Freddy's 2||1||Horror||No||PC||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Ner0clyde||-||0|
These are not the games for me. Still like the lore behind the series.
Seems to be getting better over time, but too late for me to return. I took issue with the longstanding, eventually-fixed differing guard change speeds which made peacekeeper kinda broken vs most other classes, especially raider.
I feel like I should go back to this. Was a bit slow-paced though.
Character Action Shmup
|No||PS4 (and PC?)||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||0|
Amazing combination of shmup and character action game. Awesome music.
Surprisingly good adaptation of the comic book aesthetic. Does a great job of rewarding the player with the combo system. Movement is a bit fast and loose for me - I kind of miss old school contra movement and aiming. Also, I realize that it's needed for stuff like budget and character skins, but I'm overall not a fan of spline animation - I don't know if anyone does it as well as Vanillaware.
Very, very simple shmup without any real level design. Awful music and unintersting powerups. Seems like a dev team that would do well with a good game design though.
|Gauntlet: Slayer Edition||34|
Had a ton of fun with the wizard who was clearly a riff on Arrowhead's prior Magicka. Probably not especially replayable, but I'd still want to play more.
|Geometry Wars 3||12||Shmup||No||PC||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||0||0|
Lots of bad levels (capsule levels' camera is so frustrating), bland music. Gameplay overall is good.
