Bejeweled 3
I mean, it's Bejeweled; there's not much to say here. Match three jewels, until you can't match any more. And do it as fast as possible (unless you pick the mode without a time limit). It can be fun, but it's not my thing. I'd rather toss my phone at a wall after a rousing game of Super Hexagon.

Man, I'm burning through these this morning.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
Didn't work.

Looks like I can't play the DLC for Dragon Age II because the location it starts at isn't available post-game. So I'd need to either use an earlier save or start all over. Something I'm really not in the mood for at the moment. Whoops!

Decided to jump back into Mass Effect: Andromeda for one last ride. Playing as Scott Ryder (Infiltrator) instead of Sara Ryder (Vanguard) though, to see how they're different. Well, other than the options for Investigate, ifyouknowwhatimean.

Also to see what level I can max out at, because this will undoubtedly be a completionist run.

I think that I'm going to have to start up a "Nope" section. For the games that didn't work when I tried to run them, or they're outside my preferred game-types, and that sort of thing. A lot of those games have been coming up lately, and it's kind of weird to have a one word review on stuff, or to just mention a game purely because it's broken.

Bangarang.

Dust: An Elysian Tail
A fun-ish side-scroller where you play as an amnesiac fox that somehow has a talking sword that enables you to do ridiculous fighting combos to save the land from some sort of evil. I'm not entirely sure why I stopped playing it, the game probably just got lost in the shuffle of a whole bunch of other stuff I was doing (edit) all the FFXIV I was ass-deep in at the time. The game (what I played) wasn't great, but it definitely wasn't a waste of the time that I'd put into it. I'll probably pick it back up at some point, but not today.

PAYDAY: The Heist
Co-op game where you have to rob a place. It's pretty neat, with each player having a specific job... but not something that should be played in single- player. Which is what I did. Whoops. A good amount of customization, multiple classes you can play as, and it's kind of neat to play as a villain (of a sort) for once.

Thomas Was Alone
You will feel emotions for simple geometric shapes. Simple side-scrolling jumping puzzle using the aforementioned shapes, with each shape having one kind of "ability" that can be used in the map. Didn't really do anything for me, but I chalk that up to being the kind of game I'm not really into, not because I thought it was bad.

Organized my games on my actual Steam account, separated the games I've played from the ones I haven't. I then further organized those into the ones I've beaten, the ones I haven't played but are remasters, ones that are MP-only, and that sort of thing. It makes my backlog a lot less intimidating if I'm staring at ~20 games instead of ~200.

Symphony
This game raids your music collection and makes game levels accordingly. The levels it makes are kind of like Asteroids, except things shoot back at you, all while the song you picked plays in the background. There's leaderboards and each song can upgrade your ship in some way, so as to encourage you do play everything, and it's otherwise the same kind of simple game that's fun in bits and pieces.

Long Live the Queen

First, the trailer.


This game is a rogue-like, where you die, and die, and die again, teaching you how to live in the process. The goal of the game is to get Princess Elodie to her Coronation as Queen, but there are a lot of things blocking your path including foul magic, traitorous Royals, bandits, war, wild animals, and all that delicious delicious (poison) chocolate. All of the game is making choices, there is no action on the first/third-person, top-down, or side-scrolling front. That said, the game is really fun, and even being incompetent can get you pretty far in the game (though not far enough, obviously). My most recent playthrough got me to Week 23 out of 40, and I failed skill checks throughout like it was my job. And then I died in a fit of hilarious first aid; tried to pull an arrow through since it wouldn't come out in reverse, it punctured every internal organ it came across.

I once watched a stream where the person playing went to the Royal Ball by tripping down the stairs; when the question of her competence came up by another Royal, she single-handedly talked the Duke down from his position, got the others to support her, and threw him in the dungeon for talk of a coup. It was hilarious.

I myself have never beaten the game, but it is enjoyable to keep trying, and maybe one day I too, will make it to Coronation.
