There isn’t a Nope List this month, because I played so little overall, and there was nothing I walked away from due to anything but lack of time and other shiny things calling to me.
What I Played This Month
My Time at Portia: A carry-over from last month, but I played a LOT more this month. This is a game I would have really loved to have finished, but here’s the thing – the crashes killed it for me. Although it doesn’t seem to be a very common problem, I had random crashes to the point where I’d have to do some days five or six times before I’d make it through to a save. I was forever tweaking graphical settings, and I finally just gave up, shortly after flipping over into year two.
Cosmic Express: I wanted to try out a new (to me) puzzle game for the December Community Game-Along (#PuzzleGameMonth). I played about a dozen levels over a couple of days. I did like it, but it’s something I feel like I can step away from for awhile without having to start over.
Pirate Mosaic Puzzle – Carribean Treasures: Mosiac puzzles are probably my favorite type of bite-size gaming, and sadly, I’ve blown through almost all of what I have managed to find on Steam. This one is solid, and despite having very little time for gaming, I zoomed through it.
Peace, Death: This one is probably better suited for play on mobile (or at least on touch screen), but it’s a fun little game where you decide who goes to heaven and who goes to hell, based on an ever-increasing list of things you need to keep an eye out for. It’s not super long, but I feel like it’s something I’ll go back and do a run of from time to time.
Master of Pottery: Not an exciting game, but more of a toy. It’s pretty to play with when I’m burned out on everything and just want to unwind.
Sunset Overdrive: Why oh why can’t I quit you?!? I’ve more than finished the game on XBox Game Pass for PC, and now I’m replaying it on Steam. At least this time, I’ll have those sweet sweet nerd points to show for it.
Hero of the Kingdom: A cute little hidden object quest-a-thon. The story is nothing to write home about, but it’s a relaxing game which takes less than three hours to blow through beginning to end. Not my first time playing, but my first time completing it.
