    Guess I won't be able to get to Mortal Shell. Looking to wrap up Trading Sim and Mind Scanners though

    It's a shame I never got around to mortal shell whist it was on the pass. Was planning o starting soon but don't have time to rush it before it leaves.

    Is Mind Scanners worth playing and trying to complete?
    I completed and really enjoyed it but I think it's a bit of an acquired taste game, at least for getting engrossed in the story. The gameplay itself is kind of like if wario ware and a visual novel had a dystopian future baby.
    There's multiple endings but you can rewind days to do each branching ending. It'll still need several playthroughs but they don't take too long. Doing it without a guide was hard to get every ending, but that was when it just joined GP and I'm sure there's guides for each ending now. I think it'd take about 10h to do all the chevos :)
    edit: warioware and visual novel and papers please* couldn't remember the other game it reminded me of

    I started Archvale when it came out but stopped to wait for patches due to bugged achievements. Never got back to it and probably won't before it leaves GP.

    Only one I have installed is Archvale, is it worth playing?
    I enjoyed it! I didnt play with any walkthrough though, so that might change things.

    For those wanting to play Archvale before it leaves, there's only one thing that's missable, and as long as you never use your inventory to delete items, you can't miss it. There's an item required for something else later(a book, IIRC, but its been a while since I played) and if you accidentally delete it using the inventory trash, you can't get all of the achievements. So, I generally just recommend not deleting anything to make it simple.
    Judging from a comment I saw, they patched the game so it's not possible to delete those 3 items anymore. So it might not be missable anymore.

    FFXIII-2 is good fun - says a lot that I thought I needed to play it for a second, but I’m thinking about Lightning Returns (which I should get on to). Archvale seems fun, I’ll give that a go.

    Umm Undungeon seems to have a not-recognised unobtainable cheevo? Or its apparently ultra difficult to get that not one single
    person has done it so far.


    UndungeonMarsh DestroyerTendoman77The Marsh Destroyer achievement in Undungeon worth 50 pointsGet karma -25 or lower in the Luten dimension.
    I tried getting it. It’s impossible the highest I gotten was -21. I asked another person they got -23.

    It’s not Difficult it’s because u don’t get Enough negative karma.
    Oh weird. So there's either some hidden negative karma actions that nobody's found yet, or the programmers just didn't calculate right and it's impossible?
    Wow so an unobtainable of a completely different kind for once lol
    The biggest Problem is the game is very buggy.
    Some of the quest don’t Get any Negative karma.
    There’s not enough side quest as well.

    Organ Trading Simulator has been on my backlog for way too long. Installed it now, let's hope I get everything before it goes.

    Is Mortal Shell achievable to beat in 14 days? If I play like 2-3 hours a day after work?

    Deeeeer and Mind Scanner are on my To Play list, will have to get on those!
    Can anyone confirm when these will actually go? Got caught out before when I thought something was leaving at the end of the month and started it, only for it to leave 24 hours later!
    They generally leave on the 15th and the 30th/31st.
    So halfway through the month and at the end of the month.
    The batch announced in the first few days or week of the month left on the 15th, mostly.
    This batch should generally leave all on the 30th/31st.
    Usually if there's a wildly different outlier they specify, like Football Manager left on the 8th I believe and it was specified.
    Fear is the mindkiller.

    And the devs aren't going to do anything about it I assume then. That's a shame.

    Kept going back and forth on the Space Warlord game but at this point I just can't be bothered. Glad I got Deer Sim done though!
