Home is nothing. No puzzles, no dread, no danger. Nothing. You walk home and find your wife - murdered, by you, probably. The end. Questions are left unanswered, but they're questions that nobody cares about.

Not the "unique horror adventure" it claims to be.

Life Is Strange - PlayStation 4
25.10.



10 hours or so after completing the game and I'm still absolutely shaken. I mean, I don't know how I feel. I just have this weird, sort of good, sort of uncomfortable feeling in my stomach. I love Life Is Strange, but at the same time I feel like it has a million flaws. So... a flawed masterpiece, then. I guess.

I tried to write a longer comment about the game, but I'm having trouble keeping my head together. It just had that kind of effect on me. Sorry.

Batman: Arkham Knight - PlayStation 4
23.9.



Completed 100%! And what a pain it was.

Seriously, I have almost nothing but gripes with Arkham Knight. So, I'll start with the good:

The hand-to-hand combat is as fun as ever, as is all the stealthy stuff. The new improvements; Fear Multi Takedown and the Team Fights, are great. They're done right, meaning that they're new things, but they're simple, easy to learn and pretty small as far as changes go, so it doesn't feel like they're there to steal the spotlight from the old stuff, but instead to fit in and make the game just a little bit more fun.

That's the good stuff. Now the bad:

The Batmobile. It just has to mentioned first and everyone who has played the game knows why (though it seems like everyone else knows too). Arkham Knight is like a compilation of two games: The Batman game and The Tank game. The first one is good old Batman action and the second one is some game nobody's heard of and nobody wants to play, but they have to, because otherwise they can't play the Batman game, even though the Tank game has nothing to do with the Batman game and isn't anything like it. So yeah, like everyone, I hate the Batmobile. It's boring and you have to use it way too much. Destroying sixty tanks with it on the hard difficulty is one of the most frustrating gaming experiences I've had.

My second gripe is the writing. The story is surprise-free and clichéd and frankly, just plain boring. The characters are the same as they've ever been: The Riddler is the Riddler, Two-Face is Two-Face, Catwoman is Catwoman, Batman is Batman and the Joker is the fucking the Joker, even though he's dead (they just can't make a Batman game without him). They do what they've always done and they don't develop as characters. The Scarecrow is an odd one though; he doesn't feel like the Scarecrow from Arkham Asylum at all, he's more like a copy of Hugo Strange from Arkham City. And then, of course, there's the Arkham Knight himself, who is just completely uninteresting, mainly because his only line is: "I'm gonna kill you, Batman!"

The third thing that bugs me is the treatment and place of women in the game (a thing that annoys me in the previous Arkham games as well). The Arkham Knight has three notable female characters. Two of them are wearing ridiculously sexualized outfits (seriously, couldn't Catwoman at least pull the zipper all the way up on her skintight leather suit) and one of them is reduced to a damsel-in-distress, just so Bats and old Jimbo can have some BIG DRAMA! The damsel-in-distress also gets killed (not really) so the male hero can beat himself up for failing to do a man's job.

Speaking of the hero, I hate him. I hate Batman. He's a hypocritical bully, who thinks it's okay to crack every bone in a criminal's body, and thus probably causing life-long health problems, as long as you don't kill the guy. This wouldn't be a bad thing, if he wasn't the hero. Sure, sometimes the idea of Batman being somewhat of a bad guy is toyed with, but in the end, he will always be good; a man who knows better than everyone else, because he is better than everyone else. I actually feel a bit sick every time I have to scare one of Riddler's henchmen to give me information and then strike them unconscious.

And also, there are no boss fights in the game. What's up with that?

The Last of Us - Remastered - PlayStation 4
11.6.



Beat the game on the grounded mode. Mostly pretty easy, but some parts had me dying over and over again and cursing the game to the lowest depths of hell. One I have to mention especially is the final action sequence, which didn't kill me multiple times, but instead made me play it superduper carefully for it has no checkpoints. After 45 agonizingly long minutes it was over.

The game itself is still a masterpiece. Really beautiful to look at and the story and the characters are probably the best I've ever seen in a video game.

Hitman: Absolution - PlayStation 3
3.6.



Pros and cons:

- Not really a stealth game, but a stealth/cover-shooter hybrid that doesn't really work well as either
- Only one actual assassination mission
- You can't choose your weapons before a mission
- Checkpoints and respawing enemies
- The way disguises work makes no sense
- Too much focus on a story written by some 14-year-old boy who thinks killer nuns in latex uniforms is awesome instead of embarrassing and dumb
- The cold and ruthless Agent 47 cares about some girl he doesn't even know because reasons
- Everybody seems to know 47 and call him "Hitman"
- Terrible overacting throughout the game...

Infamous - PlayStation 3
23.2.



Meet Cole, the flashy new hero with no hair, no cough drops and no charisma. To save the world he must go through many grueling tasks that involve a lot of travelling from A to B to destroy X, and he has to make the hard, pointless choices, such as the clichéd "Will you let innocent people die to save your girlfriend?" and "Will you destroy that cool thingy that gives away superpowers or you use it on yourself to become God?" And behind all those innocent bystanders who just don't know how to get out of the way when you're fighting, on top of all those ledges you can't seem to grab no matter what, awaits Cole's greatest adversary: Kessler, a villain almost as boring as Cole, who actually turns out to be HIM... from the future.

And yes, this is the dullest, grayest game there is.

Mass Effect 3 - PlayStation 3
?.1.

I've played through the Mass Effect trilogy on PC countless times, so I decided to try them on PS3. They're the same (pretty much my favorite games), but it's much nicer to play games on a console than to sit uncomfortably in front of a computer screen. Only downside is that you can't really mod a game on Playstation, so I can't get better clothes (leather jacket on FemShep looks really cool) or better hair like do on PC.

As far as fighting games go (they're really not my thing), this one's okay I guess. My thumb kinda hurts though. And it really bugs me, that in almost all superhero films and games women wear tight, revealing not-that-protecting clothes and men wear full-body armor.

The story is okay. Or at least better than I expected from a fighting game. Though I haven't played many fighting games lately. Maybe some of them have great stories, I don't know.

What can I say about this that hasn't been said a hundred times already? An outstanding game, maybe the best I've played, that's it.

Dragon Age II - PlayStation 3

I did three playthroughs, one with every class, always as a female. I tried to play as a male for a while, but the actor is totally unfitting.

So yeah, I think this is a bit better than the first one, even though I totally understand why most people don't agree with that. There are many flaws and a sense of unfinishedness (it is as Cube says; "every cave's the same"), but the combat system is better. I'm probably pretty alone with this opinion, but for me, this sort of hack 'n' slash type of action just feels... smoother. Enjoying the action is a big plus, since it's the very thing that almost ruins Origins for me. The story and the characters are pretty much as good as in the first one, even though making every romanceable character a bisexual is very gay (stupid pun intended). It's just doesn't seem very likely.

It's good that I got into this series so late, so I don't have to wait for the third one too long.

Well, what do you know, another BioWare game with great characters and an interesting story. Too bad the gameplay isn't very enjoyable. Actually, it's quite boring. Most of the time I couldn't wait for another piece of dialogue or a cutscene. I know this is partly my fault, because I'm not really into role-playing games and it's pretty much my laziness as a gamer (I don't have patience for strategies, so I just press x) that makes the action so tedious. But still, it doesn't make me wanna play it again. Not in the near future anyway.

I expected a bit more from this. I had read that the gameplay isn't that great, so I was expecting that, but what actually left me a bit cold was the story, or the stories. All of the five characters and their pasts look great on paper, but in the end seem a bit underdeveloped. I am satisfied with how every character's segment ends, but still they all feel somewhat anticlimactic and after finishing a segment, they all left me hoping for more. It's not really about the endings (like I said, I'm satisfied), but more about everything before the endings. Most of the time, things just seem to move on too quickly, the characters realizing and coming to conclusions about themselves way too fast. Okay, 'move on too quickly' is not the best choice of words, since the segments did take me a while to finish due to hard puzzles. Well, at least the atmosphere is what I was hoping for; dark and utterly hopeless.

Despite all my complaints, IHNMaIMS is a good game. Maybe a replay at some point will make me appreciate it more, since I can't really be disappointed by it anymore.

***** - ***



One of my favorite games from childhood, but not anymore. At first I thought this would hold up and still be one of the coolest games I've played, but it got boring after a while. I started notice all these little flaws. For example, you get a bunch of guys for your gang, but still you can finish almost very mission by using John, the main character who can climb, stab, throw a knife and carry bodies, which are pretty much all the things you need. The game is visually great, but the levels and missions start to feel repetitive near the end. Sometimes they even reuse the same level, just with a different setup and it might be night instead of day, but still. There's also this a bit cowardly tactic I started using in the final missions, because I didn't really feel like playing. I would get into cover, shoot my gun into air and just wait for the enemies to come to me. It's a really easy and fast way to get through levels, which is nice when a mission is boring, but also makes the game feel cheaper. The game is also very stupid story-wise, but I don't really care about that.

That's all I have to say. End of comment.

I don't really have anything to say about this one that hasn't been said a thousand times before. Limbo is game with cool puzzles and a cool visual style. That pretty much sums it up.

Oh, and the atmosphere is cool too.

The Cat Lady - PC Games

A pretty good story, but not that good of a video game. The visual style is gritty and original in its simplicity, but still it feels somewhat amateurish. Maybe some smoother animation would've helped. The puzzles are not very imaginative or challenging, but often include too much walking from room to room, trying to find something you know you're going to need, since the game kinda spells every puzzle out for you. And it's very annoying that they give me the option to choose what I'm going to say, but still make me say every single line.

But like I said, the story is pretty good. It would be nice to see a remake of this someday, with a bigger budget (or just a better developer).

I don't want to keep doing this game diary thing on a yearly basis, so this list will include every game I've played, starting from 2014, ending when I grow tired of it.

By the way, I don't use spoiler tags, so beware.

EDIT. December 9th, 2015.

Okay, I've grown tired of this. So, I'm done.

Läpäisithän Remember Me:n ranska-audiolla? Parantaa tunnelmaa kummasti. Tappelut ovat silti paskoja.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jul 22 20:50
Ehkä se ranska-audio olisi sitten voinut olla se ainoa hyvä asia tuossa, on nimittäin yksi keskinkertaisimmista ja mitättömimmistä peleistä mitä olen pelannut. Tappelut tosin paskuudesta huolimatta ehkä pelin "parasta" antia, koska ei tuolla nyt oikein muutakaan tarjottavaa ollut. Kiipeilyä lähinnä.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jul 22 21:30
Silloin siinä tulee kiva tunnelma. Meno varsin Gilliam. Musta kiipeily ja tappelut oli tylsintä kakkaa, mutta tykkäsin niistä puzzle-kohtauksista joissa muokattiin muistoja. Omaperäistä. Vaikkakin epäonnistunutta, mutta potentiaalia niissä hetkissä on vaikka kuinka. Valitettavaa että muu peli oli niin tylsä ettei jatko-osasta joka parantaisi noita muistijuttuja ole mitään toivoa.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jul 22 21:59
Ne puzzlet on kyllä ihan kivoja ideatasolla, mutta olisivat voineet niihin edes jonkinlaista haastetta laittaa. Eipä ole kummoinen palapeli jos ei tarvitse kuin painaa nappulaa ja katsoa mitä tapahtuu. Odotin kyllä, että nuo muistojen muuntelut lisäisivät jotain mielenkiintoista päähenkilöön tai tarinaan, mutta odotteluksi se sitten vain jäikin.
