Pile of Shame Sunday - 12th September 2021

Raz is like Godzilla. Hear him roar!

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.

Disco Elysium

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 44%

I've been focusing on Psychonauts this week so I didn't get time to play this.

Pillars of Eternity

  • Picked by Luke
  • Percentage Complete = 10%

I finished a few more levels this week.

I completed Milla's level and learned the Levitate skill which turns out to be pretty useful in the end. I also went around hunting for arrowheads and finally saved enough to buy a Mental Cobweb Duster. I re-entered Raz's mind to find Dogen having his brain removed and being used to create tanks but in an "Inception" level turn of events, it turns out I was in Coach Oleander's mind all along (DUN-DUN-DUNNNNN)!

Another couple of levels included Raz dodging a huge mutated lungfish that swallowed Lili then entering the lungfish's mind to experience a level that can only be described as a homage to "Godzilla" and "King Kong". I'm currently stuck on a level where I've entered a security guard's mind and trying to find disguises in order to evade capture. So far, I've been unsuccessful in locating one so I may eventually need to use a walkthrough if I can't find it next time I play.

Also, still can't get over how horny the teenagers are in this game but then again it's been a while since I've actually been one I suppose! :P And speaking of things that don't age well, Raz laughing at Coach Oleander's avatar, Kochamora, when he says he has the mind of a little girl and then proceeds to suggest he has the muscles of a little girl too, seems a bit misogynistic looking at it in 2021.
