Nancy Drew 18: The Phantom of Venice (PC)

Breath of fresh air, probably one of the few non-scooby doo plots in the series. I liked this one. The change of pace was refreshing. I think for awhile, all adventure games at a certain era were trying to follow on the Ravenhearst fad, which would explain all the scary s*** in the past.

My only complaint is that some puzzles required revisiting whenever you returned to that location. It wasn't as annoying as Icicle Creek's cafeteria, but it could've done without it. I believe this is also the first use of Currency and minigame to make money. Something I'd see again in the Silent Spy.
It's not so cliche anymore when it's happening to you.

Shatterhand (NES)

The year is 2030. You are Steve Hermann who is a police officer from the Bronx and ends up losing his arms from members of the military renegades known as Metal Command led by General Gus Grover (who has a resemblance to M.Bison). Steve gets two cybernetic arms developed by the Law and Order Regulatory Division (L.O.R.D.). Steve is now Shatterhand and he is on a mission to defeat Metal Command.

Standard NES story stuff.

I was really happy on finally beating this one. I played this game about 3 years ago and got to the last level. I felt defeated when I couldn't beat the game and put it on the back burner.
I had an incentive to beat this game cause it was picked for Achievement of the Week over at Retro Achievements. After watching a few vids and doing a little research I prevailed!

This game is a really cool action/platformer. Aside from enemies, you can also punch down walls and projectiles/bullets to defend yourself.You can also hang onto fences to get around. You can also punch little white crates to get power ups and money to be used for special platforms to power you up, get extra lives and get a full life restore. The power ups are the Greek letters α and β (Alpha and Beta). If you pick up 3 of them in a certain order, you can summon a robot satellite and it has different attacks depending on what order you picked them up. My favorite combination is the Yoyobot (βαβ) is projectile energy balls you shoot out that retracts like a yo-yo. You can even hang from your robot satellite and it gives you a boost to do an extra jump.

If you also pick up 3 more Alpha and Beta power ups in the same order in which you summoned your robot satellite, you can combine with it and use a really powerful robot suit that grants you a 15 seconds of invincibility and can shoot out powerful waves of energy.

Very good game.

Lost Horizon for PC

I had quite a few 2005-2010 point-and-click adventures in my library one way or another. Most had various issues, especially in the UI department, but this is one that I stuck with from start to finish. A pleasant surprise!

Don't Disturb for PC

I didn't understand the main menu, so I apparently started the game with the original language text (I assume Japanese), and I quickly had to restart using English. It was okay. Art is neat, but the actual game is pretty mediocre for what it is. I'm pretty sure that I recently got this in a bundle.

Renowned Explorers: International Society for PC

I liked this one a lot and intend to go back to it from time to time. Unfortunately, I will probably just stick to discovery mode on easy or normal difficulty, so I guess I won't ever be playing "the intended" experience again after failing it once. I really like the exploration part and making decisions, often risky ones, for the sake of adventure! Combat is what it is though, and while the flavor of it is different than other games that use a similar combat, nothing stands out about. So when the changes in modes and difficulty really deal with combat much more than the other, more exciting stuff, I went with discovery mode and didn't look back. I won with Anna, Maria, and Delores. My original group was Yvonne, Emilia, and Jan-Piet, but I hit a wall in just the second expedition when the combat difficulty just spiked.

Overlord for PC

While I am sure that Pikmin wasn't the first game like it, I scour for all games in the vein of Pikmin. In a list that includes Masters of Anima, Little King's Story, and The Wonderful 101, and others Overlord is probably the best Pikmin-like game that I have played (obviously excluding Pikmin). I'm definitely getting the second one on Steam.

Other than the lack of a map of any kind and micromanagement being a little unwieldy (it was only required for a few battles), I have essentially just praise for this game that was less RTS like Pikmin and more action-adventure.

DNF huh? I bailed on that when I couldn't get past how slow aiming was. You might be the first person I know to have actually beaten it.
