Video Games Completed – Wrapping up 2016

Video Games Completed 2016

Since I began tracking this the number of video games completed has gone down year after year, except for the outlier year of 2014 (what was going on that year?) I only played 36 games in all of 2016. That number isn’t very large but the quality of game I played this year was very high. The Uncharted Series, Dark Souls 2 and 3, the new Kirby, Dragon Quest Builders (my Game of the Year). I may not have the time I once did to pursue this hobby but the time I can dedicate to it is being taken up with some really phenomenal work.

I may not have the time I once did to pursue this hobby but the time I can dedicate to it is being taken up with some really phenomenal work. Browsing through this list I’m hard pressed to find a game that I was disappointed in or found objectively bad.

With that here is the list of video games completed in 2016:

Let’s Play Quest for Glory 4 – Part 12

Rehydration Formula

A short update this week. With hopefully a longer one coming next! After finding out that Bonehead wants to be one of the cool kids we head back to town and talk to Dr. Cranium. Why do I keep talking to this crazy guy? Well, everyday he will give us poison pills and a health potion so it’s good to stop in. But, if you recall, he also mentioned a rehydration formula he had been working on and that is something that Garcon most definitely wants!

This is the copyright protection schtick again…

Of course you do. Nothing is free in this world, is it? Even though we just gave you some yesterday. We agree to the request anyway and head back out into the valley.

Quest for Glory

On the way to the slime pond, Perseii stops at the swamp right next to it for something else that might come in handy later:

You never know when the remains of a dead human will come in handy! We pick up the slime and return to Dr. Cranium:

With this we can advance the Domovoi plot. What is that you say? I’ll remind you next time!

Wind Bags

After speaking with the Gnome Garcon goes downstairs to once again speak with the local yokels:

Yes, truly Mordavia was once a wonderful place… With nothing more to say Perseii goes to bed. But, he doesn’t sleep until morning but rather rests a few hours until he is sure everyone in the inn is asleep. He heads downstairs to speak with the Domovoi: Continue reading “Let’s Play Quest for Glory 4 – Part 11”

Bad Jokes

We left Garcon talking with the locals in the Mordavian Inn. The big take from that conversation was that our hero isn’t the only stranger in town. There appears to be a gnome in the valley with a predilication for telling bad jokes. The gnome isn’t at the inn right now so Perseii goes up to his room sleeps a couple of hours and then comes back down:

And there he is! Prepare for some painful reading…

If we’re feeling up for it we might try the Gnome in his room later tonight. Before that though Danar needs to leave town as he walks out of the inn:

Hollow threats. We can always sleep in front of Erana’s staff as well as just climbing into our room. Though I wonder what the innkeeper thinks we he sees us coming down in the morning after having done so… He never mentions it.

Once out of the inn Seepgood climbs over the town walls and:

“I don’t know I seem to be doing okay…”

But before she answers any more questions:

Mysterious!

But now we know her name and have the frostbite spell! Which is just like all our other aggressive projectile spells, except a different color! I don’t recall if it slows enemies down or not. We’ll find out when I encounter a monster I guess!

With Katrina gone Garcon returns to the inn. He’s got one more thing to do before going to bed:
