Yeah, giving up on this game. Might spend the weekend that it’d take to grind out the victory? Probably not.


Scribblenauts Unlimited

Time Played: 2.5 hours

You know when sometimes you just need a simple, whimsical game that’s sweet and endearing and also lets you summon a furry, friendly Cthulhu to be a pet?

Yeah, this game. This is just such a good, sweet, fun game. The challenge is in how ridiculous I can make my solutions, how silly I can be before the game stops responding. Much like NetHack’s refrain of the developers thought of everything”, Scribblenauts comes pretty close.


Time Played: 18 minutes

I’d watched videos of this, but this was the first time I’d played it. Fun, silly, fun, difficult, watching speedrunners for those videos was probably a bad idea for I am very clearly not a speedrunner and trying speedrunner techniques… didn’t work out so well.

I’ll probably go back to this, but it’s likely more a silly occasional thing for me.
