Backlog Beatdown: March

Hello again! I've been trying to document games beaten this year (and hopefully beat more than last year). A month ago I posted my first update on this for January/February and it was a pretty sizable chunk of games. This time around I'm making a post for one month because there were definitely enough games beaten during to warrant one.

Seven games were beaten in the month of March:

  • Nancy Drew: Secret of the Scarlet Hand
  • Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi
  • Tomb Raider
  • Richard & Alice
  • Jetpack Joyride
  • DLC Quest
  • Incredipede
As is my new norm, almost all of the completed games are independent, although not entirely. Tomb Raider is of course the one released this year to much acclaim. I enjoyed it too, though it left me wrestling about how I felt about Lara's presentation in the game. Hakuoki was a really sad game as it isn't even a visual novel as the first was. Instead, it's a totally cheap cash grab of a game that, honestly, should have never been given the localization greenlight.

Although none of these are my new favorite, I did quite enjoy them. Incredipede in particular was visually stunning and I recommend it to people looking for a different sort of puzzle game. Nancy Drew games are also pretty awesome and it's a shame that more people don't take them seriously. I had pages of notes taken for the game and it was exciting to reference them to solve in-game puzzles. As I've not played all the Drew games I'm unaware if that difficulty continues, but hopefully so, as it really puts you in the young detective's shoes.

Right now I'm trying to work through Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and God of War: Ascension. Hopefully they'll be beaten by the end of April!
