Completed: Titan Quest

I knew the Roosky Plays Games project was ambitious, especially after implementing the stats block and figuring out that if I played games 20 hours a week, every week, I would just be completing my current catalog in about 16 years. The first few games of the project were a little discouraging, only because they weren’t the games I started the project for. See, my catalog is full of games that I didn’t purchase specifically but got as part of a bundle. There are also a lot of very casual games. The first couple that I started playing -- Anodyne and Fractal -- were definitely in that group. I expected this, but also hoped to find some hidden gems. Titan Quest happily fits in the latter category.

On Titan Quest: Why It Pays to Be Patient

I've played about 15 hours of Titan Quest already. Countless satyrs and harpies have fallen before me and my pet wolf, whom I've nicknamed Gerald. I was going to call him Cerberus, but I have a nasty feeling that would get confusing at some point in the game. I found an awesome set of armor, and had to grab a bunch of Strength buffs from the local vendor just to be able to wear it. You know that feeling.

Roosky Plays... Titan Quest

The next game the Fates have presented me with is Titan Quest from now-defunct Iron Lore Entertainment. The game is 7 years old at this point, but I feel like it's the first "big" game I've gotten in my quest to play through my games catalog.

Review: Fractal

Three and a half hours and the main campaign in Fractal is behind me. For a $1.50 mobile game, it was very entertaining (and I'll probably keep playing on my phone as I have time).

I made a fun new tool to pick a random game from the library!
