Post #19 - Old Flames
Just another small update on a few games, one I rolled credits on, two that... well, I just rolled on.Backlog Update
Recently, I finished "Apotheon" and wound up being really, really satisfied with the endgame boss battles. All in all, a really solid 10-hour experience and a game I would definitely recommend. I'll share some of the end-game fights that I recorded on Twitch below (sadly, no camera this time - running ambulance duty at pfvrs.org).

The Final Fighthttps://www.twitch.tv/videos/508037654Q*Bert: Rebooted - Released February 17th, 2015
Q*Bert: Rebooted is a throwback to the arcade and early Atari game Q*Bert for a modern console. Sadly, after playing a 10-hour action/adventure game in Apotheon, I just couldn't get into this game at all. If you're an older video game player and have the itch for the little hopping character, definitely check out the trailer and see if it's for you. Limbo - Released February 25th, 2015
Limbo is a side-scrolling horror/puzzle game that I'd played on the PlayStation Vita years ago. I thought I'd enjoy playing the game again since it was so critically acclaimed and was well received by fans at the time of its release as an indie darling, but that same issue from Outlast crept back in on me - I'm a scaredy-cat and this game just rubbed me the wrong way for some reason this time around. I think my issue is that I sort of knew where the 'jump scares' were, but I didn't remember exactly what they were/how they were triggered. After dying about 10-15 times before getting to the spider (see above), I just bailed on the game. I remember it fondly, but that's where it'll stay - in my memories. Far, far, repressed, spooky memories. Past Tense
When this post goes live, it'll be after my Extra Life fundraiser - I survived the 24-hour marathon (barely) and raised another $50 on the day. I'm currently nursing 2 sick little humans back to health and dreading navigating through 24 hours of what will probably be a lot of rubbish stream content to find the nuggets of bronze or silver (there was no gold I can assure you). Post #20 will be heavy on Extra Life content, however, I did decide prior to the start to hand-select a handful of backlog games to try out, out of order. I look forward to that post in the 'future'. ;)
