Very tempted to triple dip on Alan Self Isolation, but I bought Amnesia Rebirth and Days Gone in a moment of drunken clarity last night for my Halloween game fix... so I’ll just get drunk again and buy it tonight instead. ^_^

I have it . It's runs super duper on the Switch. I think the audio is the star of the show here. Every ambient noise has me on edge.

Just seen that Bloodroots is currently on sale, £1.59 90% off.

Looks like a decent game, has a MetaCritic score of 75.

 

 

Got this and whilst I shouldn't complain for the paltry sum I paid I think the atrocious load times justify the slashing of the price. I'd be really annoyed by them of I'd paid more than a couple of quid for it.

I’ve only ever played the very beginning of Alien Isolation. What kind of game is it, exactly - and what’s difficult about it on hard mode? From what I understand, you don’t really have any weapons. Is it more of a stealth game?

 

Yes, it's a horror stealth game. You spend the majority of the game avoiding enemies (no takedowns, no shivving Alan in the back) and trying to get from A to B without getting brutally killed.

Alan's Self Isolation game. 

 

Can you keep Alan sane for 2 weeks, as he starts working from home due Covid-19. Help him juggle his work with two nagging kids, dog and cat, and his wife who sees a chance for Alan to get some much needed DIY projects completed. 

 

Bonus stealth level.

 

Can you get Alan out of the house to sneak down to the pub.

There’s stealth, as Fry says, but also combat and crafting. Alan can’t be killed - he’s the hunter and you’re the prey, after all - but he’s not the only one on Sevastopol station. 
 

Traversal itself is fun, though - Sevastopol has a real tactility, and exploring each section is exciting and scary. It’s a narrative-led game but as you accumulate tools and keys that let you unlock previously locked doors you can go off-piste at points and search for extras. 
 

My only wish is that The Creative Assembly has leaned more heavily into this aspect of the game and given players more freedom to explore by making the mission structure less rigid.

Jenny LeClue is $2.99 on the American eshop - £18.99 here. I've just set up a US account to buy it at that price and bought some US credit. 

 


It’s great too. Shame part 2 seems to be years away.

I’m going to buy $10 credit just for this just because the full name is so pleasing to say. 
 

Seeing what else I can get with the change - any thoughts on the Deponia series?

I played the first couple of Deponia games. They're alright, but nothing special. And they're far cheaper on pretty much everything else. The Switch ports are stupidly overpriced, even when they're on sale.

They’ve been less than £4 on the eShop - even less than that currently on the US store.
