Monthly update for games I played, started playing, continued playing, gave up playing, or beat….
- As previously mentioned, earlier this month I completed Lost Judgment on the PS4. Great game! Already reviewed here.
- On the PS4, my son Zag and I continued the Kingdom Hearts series. In January we finished Dream Drop Distance and played Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage, and finally, finally, at last, we are on to Kingdom Hearts III. These later games are vastly better that the older ones. Still way too much Disney, though.
- Last week I had a false start with Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. I own the Switch version, but I just couldn’t get past the first few hours. Not sure if I will continue trying to play, or abandon. However…
- However… I am now playing Stardew Valley on my tablet. Yes, it’s a mobile version, but so what? It is charming and addicting and surprising. So far the only negative I have to say is that the fishing mechanic is the worst, the most aggravating, the least satisfying, of any game I have ever played. I am giving up on fishing! (But I still need the different fish, so I know it’s going to be a problem.)
And that’s it, that’s the soup.
