What I've Been Playing This Week (aka Pile of Shame Sunday)

And just when I thought I'd finished Cally's Caves 4...

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Cally's Caves 4

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 50%
The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that my percentage complete for Cally's Caves 4 has actually decreased. What gives? Well, it turns out that in order to experience the whole story, you need to play the New Game+ mode since there's quite a big twist at the end of the normal game (one that I wasn't expecting in a relatively cute and straight-forward platformer – so never judge a book by its cover!). Anyway, this means I'm probably waaay off from finishing Cally's Caves 4 - might be another couple of months before I get to that review!

Hand of Fate

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 91%
On hold while I'm playing Cally's Caves 4 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Stardew Valley

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 20%
  • On hold while I'm playing Cally's Caves 4 ๐Ÿ˜Š HLTB 49 hours

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 25%
I haven't made any further progress on this – it's now on hold while I am distracted by… well… a lot of other games ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Battlefield 1

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 10%

XCOM 2

  • Picked by Luke
  • Percentage Complete = 39%
I'm actually starting to take some losses now, which ain't good. One mission I lost a sniper and a grenadier, and with my most recent one, another grenadier and a territory that contains a Blacksite D:. Thankfully, earlier on I also managed to kill an Avatar which meant the Avatar project went back a whopping three bars – but now I have a challenge in trying to keep enough well-trained troopers alive, otherwise things are going to go south really fast. I've also tried using the Spider Armour and EXO suits which are definitely useful. In terms of facilities, the Psi Lab and Advanced Warfare Centre are now complete: so, I now have a Rookie training as my first Psi-operative and I have an engineer helping out with reducing wound recovery time – neat!

Fortnite

  • Picked by Choona
  • Percentage Complete = 50%
Was going to play Fortnite tonight but looks like there's another update. That's the problem when you play games in the beta/early access stage nowadays, amirite? Anyway, will see if I can get to play a bit next week.
