Surprise new addiction - Graveyard Keeper
So, Graveyard Keeper got added to Xbox Game Pass a few weeks ago, and I gave it a quick look. It seemed interesting to me because it looked like Stardew Valley but with a more morbid twist. Decided to give it a go since, what the hey, it's free in Game Pass.
And I find myself hooked. I've been looking for ages for a game to sort of fill the void that Farmville left (never really *liked* Farmville, but I did enjoy certain aspects of it) as a time passing farm-y type sim. This is definitely qualifying, though you don't get to the farming part for a little while. Instead, you start by taking care of a graveyard, burying bodies, and doing autopsies.
And there's no question I got myself hooked, because not only have I been playing a shitload of it since release, but when I went sleuthing around the internet looking for info for things when I got stuck or felt like I was missing something, I ran into a bit of a wall, because there was limited info out there, because it's a smaller indie game. The small amount of info that WAS out there was mostly early-game info from the Alpha testing period. So I finally got inspired to write my first achievement solutions for TA. I'm particularly proud of my Alchemy recipes guide.
I'm still chipping away at Graveyard Keeper (not a quick completion by any means...there's a lot of stuff to do in the game) but I'm feeling good about an eventual 100% completion. But in the mean time, I'm still working on Gems of War (very close to the level 500 achievement, then it's just a grind to 4000 or so gems to buy my way through the Level a Pet to 20 achievement, and a mind-numbing grind to earn the 350K souls needed to craft the parts for the Xathenos achievement.
I'm sure I'll do one more post before Shadow of the Tomb Raider drops and I start 'New Game Season', to see what I can get done before then and my goals for a while.
-Gems of War (TU's)
-Far Cry 5 (Lost on Mars/Dead Living Zombies DLCs)
-LEGO Jurassic World (Xb1)
-Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice (stupid final boss fight achievement that didn't pop on my first play)
