Another solid month of gaming!
Edit - a little early, but it's the afternoon of the 31st here and I don't imagine I'm going to finish another game today.

Actually still doing this.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC (Steam)
This one clocked in at around 85 hours (in game), though Steam says it's around 63 hours. An interesting side effect of Turbo mode is that it basically speeds up time. I was absolutely hooked on this, finishing it up pretty early in February. So much character development, and a very engaging story that pays off all the setup from this game and the previous title. As soon as I finished it, I launched right into the third game.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky The 3rd (Steam)
Chipping away at that backlog
Writing up my whole year of gaming progress for last year was a bit of a challenge (and there might've been some stuff I forgot), so I'mma try to do this monthly.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC (Steam)
Looking back on what I played this year, maybe it'll launch a couple of reviews.
My gaming time in the last six years was drastically cut down. Being an adult with a full time job, living on my own, didn't always leave a lot of time for games. I might get a couple of hours in on a weekend. It took a special game to actually get me playing in the evening after work (I generally just watched TV shows until it was time to sleep).
Disco Elysium (PC)

I was greeted by this message today. I guess it has been over a year since I wrote a review. It's probably been about that long since I beat a video game. It's become less of a priority in my life, I suppose. I much prefer building stuff with LEGO... anything to get away from the screen for a bit.
How about just giving it a girls name.
There's probably more.
It's a long article, but a very interesting read.
The Verge: Telltale Games Developer Layoffs Toxic Video Game Industry
I've been a fan of TellTale since the Sam & Max days, and I was initially quite happy that The Walking Dead was such a huge success for them, but became quite bored with that template over time (liked The Wolf Among Us, but never finished Game of Thrones, and I'm a huge GoT fan). It's hard to tell how many of these claims are true, since the article bounces between sources (and the CEO), so it does seem to be telling both sides of the story, or maybe the claims made by one side seem to ring a bit hollow.
