[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen – Back at War (Turns 251 – 260)

It feels like a while since I got to sit on the throne of the Great British Empire. Which isn’t all that surprising, we have 8 players participating on this project and we are now at the point where the game gets really interesting and the best decisions aren’t entirely obvious.

If you just stumbled on this, this post is part of a Community Succession game hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot. You can find more information about it and links to all the participating blogs here.

Now let’s see how much damage improvement I can bring to the Great British Empire!

A couple more demos from the Steam Games Festival

This post is horribly late as I have been distracted by other things. Worse, because of said distractions I didn’t even get to test out all the demos I wanted! Oh, well, such is life with ADD.

For those wondering what this Steam Games Festival is all about, it was a short event hosted by Steam where people could download and play demos for a ton of featured indie games. It was a nice opportunity to play some games that we weren’t sure if we’d like or haven’t even heard before.

It ran from June 16 to June 22 of 2020. As far as I know most of the demos aren’t available to download anymore but I’d still like to highlight some of the games I played just in case the is demo still available somewhere or even if it is just so people can keep an eye on it if they like what they read here.

With all that said here are a couple of games that I really enjoyed and added to my Wishlist:

To the Moon Play-Along – Minisodes

I honestly had no idea of what to expect of the Minisodes. All I knew going in is what I heard from others, that it would give us a peek at Sigmund Corporation. It not only did that but it was certainly an interesting peek for a lot reasons.

If you just stumbled here and have no idea what this post is about then here is the deal: this Play-Along project is like a book club except for video-games. It is being hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot and you can find more information as well as a link to all the participants here.

With that said, let’s get to the questions!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead for the minisodes of To the Moon. Proceed at your own risk!

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 3

Act 3 of To the Moon answered a lot of the questions that has been in my mind since the start of the game. It also hit really hard in the feels to the point of almost making me cry. And I am not the type who easily cries with fiction!

Anyway, in case you just stumbled on this post, this is part of a Play-Along projected hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot. It is like Book Club but with games. You can find more details about it as well as links to all the participants over here.

Down below you can find my answers about Act 3.

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 2

It is time again for another post on the To The Moon Play-Along hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot. If you have no idea what I am talking about: this Play-Along is like a Book Club except with games. You can find more details as well as links to all the blogs participating here.

This time we’ll be tackling Act 2 of of To the Moon. I was already expecting it to be shorter than Act 1, thanks to the Play-Along discussion about the game but even then it still felt too short. On the other hand I don’t know how they could extend it without it feel like it was just wasting the player time. It also raised a lot more questions about Johnny’s situation than answered it. Hopefully everything will be tied up in Act 3.

WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Act 2 of To the Moon. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled.

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 1

A little while ago Naithin, of Time to Loot, came with another idea for a shared blogging project. This time it is kind of a “book club” version of games, where we all play a game until a certain point and then discuss it.

The discussion in this case is more like answering a set of questions proposed by our host, Naithin. It is a good way to keep things focused so people don’t ramble on about different aspects of the game in each of their blogs. If you want more details, including links to all the posts from participating blog, you can find it here.

The first game we are playing for this project is To The Moon, from Freebird Games. I bought this game a long time ago, during a promotion, since I heard good things about it. But as is too common with me, I didn’t play it immediately saving it for when I was in the “mood” to play it and just forgot about it completely.

So, this seemed like a good opportunity to correct that mistake! Just from Act 1 I can already say it was worth every cent and just Act 1 alone already hit me in the feels more than I expected. 🙂

WARNING: From this point on there will be spoilers about Act 1 of the game. If you don’t want to be spoiled stop reading here.

[ACNH] The great island reform – part 4

For some reason I have been procrastinating to write this post. I guess it kinda reflects the kind of position I am with the game itself too: I still have a few things I want to do but I can’t decide on how to do it so I keep postponing it and just stick to doing my dailies.

This isn’t even out of a sense of “This game is so great that I don’t want to end it so I keep postponing things”. It is an Animal Crossing game after all, it doesn’t have an end. It is more one of those situations where I am struggling to find an implementation to an idea that I find satisfying enough so I end up avoiding it completely. Well, maybe there is some burnout with the game too.

Anyway, enough self-analysis. This is how my island is looking right now.

[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen – War in Ancient Times! (Turns 91 – 100)

When we started this project I honestly thought it would take at least a month for it to be my turn to play the game again, specially with so many participants. But it is actually going pretty fast, probably as a result of each of us being only able to play 10 turns.

If you have no idea what I am talking about then here is a brief explanation: Naithin of Time to Loot invited some of us bloggers to play a game of Civilization VI, cooperatively. Each of us play the game for 10 turns and then once it is done we pass on the save to the next person. Rinse and repeat until we either beat the game or meet utter defeat!

He even made a page for it that you can check here. You can find all the details there, including who the participants are and a link to each post narrating what happened during their turns. If you like what you see here, please consider following all of them as they are all excellent folks.

The banner on the top of the post was also made by Naithin.

[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen! – Meeting new people and killing them (or some of them) – Turns (11 – 20)

Naithin of Time to Loot came up with the idea of doing a succession game of Civilization VI and invited some of us bloggers to participate. You can find the details here.

The TL;DR version is: We’ll be playing only with the base game so the most people can join. Each person will play for 10 turns and then pass on the save for the next turn. Then they will blog about it. Rinse and repeat until we beat the game or everything go terribly wrong and we lose. XD

Also, if it isn’t obvious by the banner, we’ll be playing England.

The current participants are, in order of play:

  1. Naithin
  2. Rakuno
  3. Paeroka
  4. Tessa (aka Endalia)
  5. Krikket
  6. UnwiseOwl
  7. Rambling Redshirt
  8. Kanter

If you are interested on this series, please follow all of them to see where this games goes. 🙂

P.S.: Banner created by Naithin.
