My Steam backlog impressions

posted by RingmasterJ5 on - last edited - Viewed by 164 users

I have a LOT of Steam games, most of which I've never played. Now, I'm finally going to try them out. I'm going to post my impressions here, as I play them. Hopefully with screenshots.

These are all games I have never played before, except with the possible exception of demo versions. I'm only going to show the first level, so I can show as many in one post as I can.

1000 Amps: Puzzle game where you jump around in the dark until you touch lights. I don't know if it was just the early part in the game going too easy, but I honestly had no desire to play this any more just a few minutes after I started. Also, doesn't use the Steam overlay, so no screenshots. :(

A.R.E.S.: ...Failed to start. After uninstalling and redownloading...

It works.

Well, this is clearly Mega Man. I love Mega Man, so this should be good.

Not even ten seconds into the level itself, and I've already unlocked something.

After a bit of platforming, it's locked me in a room, that I'm presuming is going to be filled with-

OH GOD IT'S ON MY HEAD

After that's done with, it gives me a crafting menu, which I have no use for at this point in the game:

After a few more minutes of platforming(sorry, this game is quite hard, so it's a bit hard to screenshot while playing), it locks me into another room with this thing:

Then later, into a room with these things:

And this thing, which kills me:

I return the favor and get a D grade:

My screenshots don't do it justice, but this was actually quite fun. It plays a lot like Mega Man X. I'll probably play this again.

But now, I have the next game on the list, the one some of us got for free last summer: Alien Breed 2. I'll save that for the next post.

  • I just recently gave that game a shot. It IS quite hard and I've since got stuck and put it back down. It was fun though.

  • Alien Breed 2 had a very odd controller glitch, so I couldn't play it.

    The next game I tried, Altitude, was quite fun, although the multiplayer focus made screenshots impossible.

    I then tried a much slower game, which actually resulted in a ton of screenshots. So here we go...with this thing.

    In the opening level, I'm playing a dying tribal chief possessed by a kind spirit.

    Hours later, he died of a tragic accident at the tribe's monthly Jumping Lunch Karate tournament.

    And, a bit of simple platforming away, we have this giuy bowing to his rock god:

    Because of his blasphemy, I proceed to beat the crap out of him:

    Next, I find a guy I can pick up:

    And... chew on?

    Oh god, am I going to be a cannibal?

    ...No, it doesn't let me swallow him. He's staying where he is, though.

    And up a ladder:

    Yes, I know exactly what to do. I must...

    SACRIFICE MY FELLOW MAN.

    ...Aww, even the enemy doesn't want him. But anyway, the solution:

    So after I meet this masochist:

    And a bunch of Spore rejects:

    I die, which marks the end of my first try of this game:

    There's some kind of "revival" fetch quest after, but that's all I'm going to play for now.

    This was...average. Not something I see myself going back to, but not really bad, either.

    Coming up: Mermaid assassins from Avadon.
