Controllers & Coffee: DC Villains and Puzzle Games

I’m notorious for starting video games and then starting another new game and not finishing the first one I originally set out to finish. I bought three new video games even though I have a short pile of games I still need to play. I wanted to share what I have been playing and what’s next on my gaming backlog.

Consoles

One of the new games I bought was Lego DC Super-Villains on my Nintendo Switch. I love playing this game during the week. I try to play one level or so right before I go to bed. I have always been a fan of LEGO games as I don’t have to focus all my effort on playing the game. I tend to save some of my more intensive games on weekends.

The other two games I bought were Vampyr and Resident Evil 2. Vampyr is about a doctor who was turned into a vampire and now has to balance saving and taking lives. Resident Evil 2 was remastered. I missed out on playing through the Resident Evil franchise, so I’m happy to see the games revitalized.

I also purchased The Quarry a month ago. It’s good so far, but I felt it was more fitting to play during October since it’s a horror survival game.

PC

Hidden Through Time released three DLC that I have been playing through. The three DLC are Road to Rome, Aztec Rituals, and Pirate Treasures. My favorite so far is Pirate Treasures. Hidden Through Time is one of my all-time favorite hidden puzzle games. I adore the music, and I like the hint system. The hints don’t give it away, so it’s more rewarding if I find the object I’m looking for. Rogueside, the makers of Hidden Through Time, do have a few other games up on Steam that I might check out.

There are two other games on my list that would be fitting to play in Fall. The first is Pumpkin Jack where you play as Jack, the mythical Pumpkin lord. The other game is Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York. This is a visual novel game based on the Vampire: The Masquerade roleplaying game. I have a good selection of games to pick from and play through in the next month or two.

Board Games

The only new game I played recently was Doomlings which I wrote a review about a few weeks ago. I recently cleaned out and organized my own board game collection. I had a few games collecting dust and I figured if I wasn’t going to play them, I’d at least donate them to someone who might. I have now opened a free shelf that’s sitting empty since I did some reorganizing.

Roleplaying

I’m still playing through Curse of Strahd every other Thursday. Our characters recently leveled up, so Levenia (half-elf Blood Hunter) is a level #7. Our group is slowly getting stronger and progressing through the city of Barovia. We still have a few side quests to complete before we even think about going after Strahd directly.

Miscellaneous

For a Critical Role update, I’m on episode 91 of Campaign #1. My goal is to finish Vox Machina / Campaign #1 by the end of the year, so I can start listening to Mighty Nein / Campaign #2. I have 22 episodes left and with each episode averaging 4 hours, I still have quite a bit of content to get through.

In other gaming news, Overwatch 2 has a release date of October 4th. If I were to play, I think I would play on my husband’s Xbox since I play for Xbox Live already and I don’t have a PS5 yet.

I think I’m going to start writing these posts towards the end of the month since I tend to change my gaming interests throughout the month. I’m looking forward to getting back into gaming and playing more horror leading into Fall.
