Games that haven't made the cut that you should maybe check out

Rate this Entry
Hey there! How are you? Good, good, I am well too.

It's been a while since I made a blog post. I'm making my way through my to play list... slowly. Unfortunately, some games will not be making it on my top lists. I know, it's sad, but not every game can make the cut.

So this is a list of games that didn't make the cut (so far) that aren't actually BAD games, just not my flavour for whatever reason. I'll add more updates as I go along.

XCOM: Enemy Within

XCOM is a strategy RPG about aliens coming to invade Earth. You play as the Commander, mobilizing troops to fight off the alien invaders against tough odds and cheating computer.

Why it didn't make the cut: This game is too stressful for me, personally. The challenge level is high, even on easy, and the computer feels cheap a lot of the time.

Why/who should check it out: If you're in to strategy games, feeling like a badass, and difficult challenges, this may be up your alley. It definitely makes you think about your moves and makes you live with the consequences of your actions with the perma-death feature.

Dragonball Xenoverse

Make your own hero and explore the Dragonball Universe as you relive events of the manga/anime in order to prevent evil time people from undoing the past.

Why it didn't make the cut: While the game is fun, it really didn't stand out to me. It could also get a bit grindy at times and the gameplay felt repetitive to me. Also, they can have, like, 10 versions of Goku to choose from, but only a handful of females? And one of them is DLC? How about some more love for the women of the DB universe!

Why/who should check it out: Fans of the series should get a kick out of it. It explores a lot of the Z timeline and beyond, letting you relive some badass and great moments. You do get to make and customize your own avatar and interact with your favourite characters of the series. It's also a sizeable game, so you'll be getting your money's worth.

Nekopara Vol. 1

Play as a young man opening a bakery and moving out of his parents home in this visual novel. Before long, two of his cat girl pets sneak away to move in with him and help him run the bakery.

Why it didn't make the cut: This game was big on the creep factor, even with the sex scenes removed. You have a brotherly, or even fatherly relationship with these "pet" cat girls (all the human-cats are female SHOCKINGLY) and then they go in to heat and... yeah. Putting aside the creepiness of owning sentient beings.

Why/who should check it out
: I'm not here to judge other people's fetishes and if cat girls do it for you (which seems to be a common enough thing), have at it. There are some sweet moments, some likeable characters, and the game looks really good. It's very adorable.

That'll be all for this time! I have more on the list, but this will do for now. Hope you enjoyed!

    I remember someone on /r/visualnovels saying that Nekopara was an "interesting commentary on slavery". I dunno if there's anything to that, I don't have any interest in reading it anytime soon
