Month End Video Game Wrap-Up: May 2024

~ Game Over ~

Bloody Ink (PC) – The latest from my favourite indie horror dev, Doesn’t Matter Games. It’s pretty much exactly what I was expecting, and then some! I don’t think the story really stuck the landing, but I enjoyed the ride no less.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (PS4) – I guess you’d say that this is a modern expression of a 1990s point-and-click adventure. Which is a good thing! Classic Holmes-style mysteries with a ton of puzzles and mini-games. Fun game, and I look forward to playing more of the series.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PC) – Finished off a run that I started last year. Great game. Honestly not sure why it didn’t click with Teen Ryan.

Another Crab’s Treasure (PS5) – A stellar video game in all aspects.

Robocop: Rogue City (PC) – It’s, um… not the most riveting FPS I’ve ever played. At least not gameplay-wise. Its strengths definitely lie in how faithful it is to the movies. I don’t know what players who aren’t long-time Robocop fans would really get out of it, but the review scores are quite high so… Maybe the problem is me?

Tunic (PS5) – Very good action/puzzle game that brings together the best parts of The Legend of Zelda and Fez. More words on this coming very soon.

BEEP (PC) – This one’s actually write-off. Cute little platformer with some unique mechanics, but not so engaging that I wanted to play all the way to the end.

~ Progress Notes ~

Mega Man Battle Network 2 (GBA) – Travelled to Yumland.

Animal Well (PC) – I have no idea how to gauge progress here.

Cookie Cutter (PC) – 40% completion.
