On the Fourth Day of Blogmas…

On the fourth day of Blogmas, the game is asked of me nine games on your to-play list.

It’s day four! Athena’s crack team of bloggers are still working away, and I’m still keeping up (I think). Today involves nine games that I have lined up to play. This shouldn’t be too taxing considering how silly my backlog is.

1. Danganronpa V3

I finished Danganronpa 2 in 2018, having finished the first one in 2017 (if my memory serves!) so it stands to reason that I’d play the third one in 2019. Bring on the teddy bear murder and bonkers plot about the world ending!

2. Starlink

I’d really like the physical version, but I’d end up spending way too much on all the extras.

This one I added very recently. I like the idea of a space shooter with a ship that can be changed on the fly. As much as I wanted the physical edition, I heard that you lack a lot of the abilities you need for later in the game, so I bought the full on digital bundle. Looking forward to this.

3. The Beginner’s Guide

I don’t know why I’ve put this off for so long. It’s a brief walking simulator from the people who made The Stanley Parable so it’s right up my street. Apparently, it’s much more serious than the previous game, but I might finally get around to playing it very soon.

4. The Room Two

I liked The Room. It had good puzzles that weren’t really that taxing once you got your head around then. I bought the sequel on Steam earlier this year and I’m looking forward to giving it a play when I have a few hours spare.

5. The Wolf Among Us

The wolf among us
The engine may be shonky now, but the art style still works well.

I’ve had this install on my Xbox One for around two years and I simply haven’t started it. I think the idea of the episodes being ideally played in one sitting is putting me off slightly, but I’m very keen to play a game that many call Telltale’s best. Oh, and I haven’t read the book, so I’m going in blind!

6. The Council

Another story/decision driven game, but one in putting off for very different reasons. The Council is episodic, but only 3 episodes are so far released. I’m waiting for the final two before I get started.

7. Tyranny

A CRPG in the style of Baldur’s Gate and its ilk, set in a world in which the villains have already won. I’m intrigued, but the length of the game puts me off starting. I’ll get around to it one day.

8. Metro 2033/Metro Last Light

Metro redux
I really enjoyed this first time around. It was pretty creepy in places.

Damn Xbox Game Pass is a great deal! Both of these are included with it, and whilst I’ve played Metro 2033, I never did play Metro Last Light. With Metro Exodus coming out in 2019, it seems like a perfect time to play these through.

9. Dark Souls Remastered

My wife gave me this on Switch for Christmas, and once I’m through with Ashen I’ll probably get started on a game I’ve played countless times before. The portable option makes a big difference for me when it comes to playing this.

There we go! Nine games that I’m lining up to play. It’s a good thing I don’t have a job, otherwise I’d probably never get them…oh wait. What games have you lined up to play soon?

  1. Starlink and Tyranny are also on my to-play list, along with Octopath Traveller, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Pillars of Eternity. I’m just struggling to find time to commit to some of the longer RPGs, at the moment.

    1. That’s very much the same with me. I’d like Octopath, but I know a 50+ hour game is unlikely to be finished. Having said that, being on Switch certainly helps as you can play wherever. If Persona 5 comes out on it I’ll probably give it a go finally.
