There’s been little progress since the last entry. First it was the ungodly heat wave which hit my part of the country and sucked every little bit of energy from my veins, then the slumbering beast called ‘social life’ suddenly opening its eyes and making me engage in unexpected activities like a music festival or a fishing trip (the latter apparently being the real-life equivalent of Dark Souls).
So, I barely touched the games mentioned in my last post, like Sunless Sea or Verdun. Still, despite the circumstances I was able gain some ground…
…in a game which is perfect for short sessions after work, when your body is melting down. Meet Völgarr the Viking, a retro hack’n’slash platformer I’ve been casually playing for a year. The game has never mentioned on this blog because I’ve never treated it too seriously and expected to get far in it due to its very demanding difficulty level, but, to my surprise, I somehow managed to reach the final level and enter the devil’s den, as pictured above. Even if I beat it in the coming days, this will give me (spoiler alert!) the worst possible ending, but maybe I’ll play New Game+ then, testing my patience even harder.
As for other goals, everything tells me that I will be very busy again, so it’s the bare minimum: finally close the Space Marine playthrough and write about it. With some nice screencaps if possible.
Cheers and see you next Monday.
