35. Beat a game with a lead that's from a fictional species

Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! (PS4)

The original game was #10 on my 'Top 100 Games List' I did a few years a ago, so I had high expectations for this game to deliver on everything that the original did, and it succeeded for the most part. As with the first game, it looks great, plays great, and is faithful to the original, which is all I wanted. The one spot that it isn't as great, though, is in the voice acting where a bunch of the voices have been changed. In almost all of these cases it was because the original voices were "bad", but there was some charm in the awfulness of them and that same charm is missing here.

It's also my first platinum of 2019!

24. Beat a game with romance as a central theme

Florence

This is a very short mobile game about a relationship that makes excellent use of the platform. I hadn't even heard about it until watching/reading Giantbomb's GOTY content, but it might be in my top 5 games of 2018.

47. Play a technically unbeatable game for at least six hours
BanG Dream: Girls Band Party

I should've listened to all the warnings to stay away from gacha games. It starts as a free mobile game featuring characters from an anime I liked and a fun rhythm game aspect. Now GBP owns portions of both my wallet and my soul.

I'll likely forget about this because I don't plan on hanging around that much, but why not

12. Beat a game made by a developer you've never tried

The Flame in the Flood


- Pretty fun and relaxing survival game. There's a nice zen to the late game with enough supplies built up, enough warmth, enough food, that it's kind of chill getting to the end. I understand playing endless mode would be scavenging always, but I had a decent run of it at the end there just cruising along. Excellent soundtrack that reminded me of Life is Strange at times, some decent learning curve... it was enjoyable. Parts of me wish there was a bigger difficulty spike in the latter half or that there were lots more recipes that I needed to hoard for, ending the run with everything full of long unneeded items.

Also, the ending? My mind's kind of reeling on just the mechanics of it.

P.S. Just loaded up the other game I'm playing, and I may have back-to-back same publisher, Curve Digital.

Whoop, I love doing this challenge. I was so close to getting 50/50 in 2017, but got really burnt out around the end of that year. 2018 wasn't really much of a good year for me, so I didn't finish a lot of games but I'm determined to finally finish 50 games this year.

Here's to a good 2019!

37. Beat a game that's been in your backlog for a longtime

I started Banjo in 2017 but I never finished it until the other day, 100%.

17. Beat a first person shooter

Wolfenstein: The New Order

15. Beat a puzzle game
