Game Progress: The New Nightmare
January 25, 2017

Pokemon Go (Android)
Still waiting for a proper update, a good nest migration, a 10 km egg or a worthwhile event before fully getting back into this game. I'm not going to bother with Pokemon Duel.

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare (PlayStation)
Got the discs buffered and they play properly now. I started Carnby's campaign, died and restarted. The last thing I did was kill a creature in the sewers before moseying on to another area. I used a save charm there and am reluctant to continue. I have a feeling this will be a tough title to get through. It's creepy, but also quite difficult. Its controls are the usual tank-style, but a tad over responsive. It's difficult to actually guide Carnby without over-correcting and running as if Carnby is drunk.

Zombi (PS4)
Exited the safe house for the first time and hacked a few CCTV junction boxes. I almost didn't make it out of the supermarket alive.

Alpha Protocol (PC)
Completed the events in Saudi Arabia and moved on to Taipei. I haven't made any progress there yet. The new digs are interesting.

Pocket Mortys (Android)
Downloaded and started this one. It's a lot of fun so far. I've beaten three members of the Council of Ricks. Right now I have to amass 20 badges, but I'm mostly trying to flesh out the recipes at the crafting kiosk. I think I have something like seven left to uncover.

Teslagrad (PS4)
Started this one and defeated the first boss. It's a very breezy and enjoyable game so far. It's incredibly easy, but not the bad or boring kind of easy. Think more along the lines of The Maw, which I really enjoyed.

Gone Home: Console Edition (PS4)
I also started this one and didn't get very far. I typically have a hard time with graphic adventure games like this, especially when there's so much tedious investigation involved. I think I'll enjoy this more once pieces start falling into place.

Missing a key clue or two can negatively impact the Gone Home experience, because there's not actually a lot to it if you investigate the right objects carefully. And if you don't, you might spend an extra few hours wandering about and seeing nothing new. That's what happened to me. I liked the game well enough in the end, as my review for the PC edition hopefully made clear, but I do wish I hadn't missed finding one single note for so very, very long...

If you methodically pore through the objects in every room before moving on to the next, you're not likely to miss anything. Be prepared for a lot of reading, though.
