  4. Completed: Ghost of a Tale Platform: PC Stealth/adventure starring mouse minstrel trying to escape a prison and find his wife, taking place in around large castle. Strong world design and artwork for a medieval/gothic setting. Well written characters and lore. Simplistic stealth and disguise systems. Becomes tedious as you try to find items either placed in the environment or on certain guards for fetch quests which you may have already done or that may require backtracking and guessing where items could be, not helped by long length and that most of the fetch quests are given by the same small group of characters over and over.
  5. Completed: NAM-1975 Platform: Arcade A horizontally scrolling shooting game that has your character on screen while you control the aiming reticle, stationary when shooting and can run or roll to avoid enemy shots and explosions. Fun, short but introduces new enemies on each stage, can be a bit overly difficult at times and the reticle a little slow to move. Completed: The Council Platform: PC Adventure game dealing with conversation based confrontations with choices being based on your developed skills and findings. Puzzles and story elements can be found out through exploration and with the help of your abilities. Entertaining story dealing with supernatural forces and your character joining an event hosted for world leaders and important figures. Different events and endings in each episode.Voice acting very hit or miss and odd model movements. Possibly dull finale, the decisions I made I really didn't get to do anything interesting and didn't even have any kind of challenging or entertaining final conversation battle, I did look up some of the other endings and it does look like things can go slightly differently with more to do or very differently with an interesting end. No matter what the ending chapter does seem rushed though and there are some strange ending character epilogue narrations, like they weren't sure what to do if certain decisions were made. One of the more interesting games I played this year and one I hope to a sequel to or something that plays in a similar way.
