Hello and welcome to the madness!
The challenge is simple: Play and beat any 6 games, starting today, that have been featured in any given Humble Monthly/Choice bundle in one month.

The prize: Personaยฎ 5 Strikers

Game length does not matter and I'm not looking for 100% achievement runs. So long as you play and beat 6 games, I'm happy. You can go easy mode and play a bunch of 1h games or go crazy and play 6 +30h games. So long as they were in a monthly at a given point, it is all good.

Just post a comment with either screenshots/ achievements showing that you fulfilled the criteria and I'll add on Steam and give you the link. Feel free to share your thoughts on the games you've played, but it is not required.

FAQ:

Why you doing this?

I hate money. That and I realized I've been subbed to the monthly for over five years (yes it has been that long, I checked) and it occurred to me that I've barely touched the games I've gotten from it, let alone played them. Figured the same would be true for a few others, so I figured this is a good way to change that. A sensible person would probably unsub in this situation, but please refer to the beginning as to why that will not happen.

I've played the first X minutes of a game, can I pick it for the event?

No. You cannot have any play time or achievements prior to the start of the event. The only exception is idle time from farming Steam cards.

Can I play a MP only game?

No. It needs to have an "end" in order for me to count it as beaten, so it needs to have a campaign/story mode.

Why six games?

The first few monthlies had 6/7 games in them so I went with that.

How long are you going to do this?

Until my credit card statements gives me nightmares.

This event "ends" on April 6th when the next HB Choice releases, though the giveaway itself will end the next day. If you manage to finish game number six in between that time, feel free to post, but know that I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to give you the link in time.

Good luck, have fun and stay safe.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to wish the cat a Happy Birthday.

Note: I know this event started before the last one has ended. If you complete a game during this period, I'll let you decide if you want to use it for this event or last month. Can't be both, sorry.

Honestly, I never thought I would be doing this event for a whole year. It has been a very shitty year, but I hope this event has provided a bit of joy to some of you here. Thanks for taking part :)

GOSH DARN IT CJ! A chance at P5S is too good to pass up, I'm getting exhausted, lol!

I was thinking of asking you how it was, haha. An action-style spin-off of Persona just sounds so much fun.

Okay, already finished a couple since this game got me so excited, haha.

  • Wildfire: Story finished (Pretty fun, but NG+ seems like a letdown after the ending got me kinda excited, so I doubt I'll do much more in it)
  • Snake Pass: Story finished (Got tired of getting all the collectables shortly after 20%, lol)
  • Cyberhook: Done (Most of the levels were pretty fun, but several were just so annoying... Not gonna try to 3-star all of them.)
  • Minoria: Finished (I was not having fun with this until I farmed up a ton of XP to be OP and not get two-shotted, haha.)
  • Ageless: Finished (Can't honestly say I enjoyed this one, so much of it was just a pain, especially the bosses... The writing was pretty cringe-worthy, too.)
  • Indivisible: Completed (Was pretty fun, but I was getting a little tired halfway through, so I decided to skip some of the other recruits and side-quests.)
  • WWE 2K Battlegrounds: Almost done with Campaign (Campaign got soo annoying and frustrating when it starts making you face opponents way stronger than your characters, so I gave up. I might still enjoy the local MP, which was what I was mostly wanting from it, but too frustrated with it currently...)

would this game be enjoyable to a non-weeb? i like jrpgs, but the anime aspect isn't anything special to me, i could take it or leave it. i enjoyed games like the '.hack' series and 'catherine' if that helps. i've been doing these monthly events for so long that it'd feel weird to sit one out. i'd feel bad about winning a $60 game and having it go to waste though.

I'm in the same boat concerning anime. I'd seen a Persona 5 Strikers trailer focused primarily on the combat, and it looked great. I love the neon look to everything too. Anyway, I just watched a short chunk of a walkthrough, and I'm unfortunately gonna have to sit this giveaway out. Way too many interruptions to the gameplay with a story, music, voice-acting and dialogue that aren't appealing to me at all.

Here's what I watched. I timestamped it, and I think after watching a few minutes you'll know if you want to play it or not:

good look, thanks. i watched up to the ~40 min mark, skipping through most of the dialogue. though i think i might like it, i think i'm gonna give myself a break and sit out anyways since i know this is a series people are passionate about. i have plenty of other games i need to catch up on as well.

Yeah, if you're not a fan of the characters and stuff it might not be as enjoyable, but I think the combat systems in this look nice enough still. It'd probably still be an interesting enough story that could interest you too, but it's always hard to tell if someone else would like it or not.

I haven't finished P5, but I rented it for a while and got through a chunk of it, though not enough to meet many of the Thieves, but enough to like Joker a lot and like the idea in general. That and the fact that I'm a major weeb tells me I'd probably love this game, haha. But yeah, fireball's suggestion might give you a better idea whether or not you'd enjoy it.

Not sure if I'll enter the GA because I do have a lot of games to play, even though I'm working the backlog thanks to you CJ.
Still, I'll participate in the even regardless because I wouldn't know how to even pick games to play without you and PAGYW so thanks for keeping the motivation alive.

Alright so I decided on a few games. I'm playing Ghostrunner first (thank you CJ!) so I think I'll be going for light and fluffy next but oh wait... never mind :P

Soooo Immortal Redneck took me way way longer than expected. Thanks for nothing HLTB with your bum estimates :P but it was a blast.
Just not sure I'll have enough time for 5 other games this month though. It's going to be tight.

Decided on Outlast 2 next, which probably wasn't a good idea since I already have trouble sleeping. Wow. Freaky freaky game. I rushed through this one a little because I couldn't wait to get to the end. I'm definitely not a big fan of that type of horror game.

Had to follow up with something colorful and fluffy to wash my brain from Outlast so went with Wandersong. Much much deeper than I was expecting, and a little dark in story at times but a really fun experience with refreshing game mechanics that were really well used. I was kinda worried it would get repetitive but it didn't. The game also had lots of fun nuggets here and there if you take your time and talk to all the characters, which hmmm took me longer than expected so I'm going to scratch my initial choices and go for shorter games to finish the month.

And since I was all happy and fluffy, I went for Still There aaaaand.... who's crying? I'm not crying, you're crying! Almost forgot to do a screenshot of the credits because I was fumbling for tissues. Don't play it if you are too proud to cry in front of your screen. But hmm yeah besides the story, which is good, and well told, the gameplay was a bit random at times. Lots of menial tasks and fixing things which come in 5 or 6 steps. It felt tedious and I probably wouldn't have stuck with it if I hadn't felt so hooked by the overall story.

Truberbrook was better than expected. It's a really pretty game with a good heart and humor and a touching story. I was surprised to see it had a mixed score on Steam. I guess it has a little too much of an "indie movie" feel to it. Some underdeveloped characters, slow burn kind of pace, maybe too much existential undertone for some, I don't know. I'll play it again (actually wanted to keep the other ending for my next playthrough but the end I got first bummed me so much, I had to reload and go through the other one instead)

Frog Detective 2 was really really to make up for lost time. Read it was better than the first one. Guess it must have been an April's fools joke.

Tentative game list for this period

Game Monthly Achievements Playtime Completion
Control Mar 2021 35/67 18.2 Hours Completed
The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game Dec 2020 6/6 68 Minutes Completed
Iris and the Giant Feb 2021 4/16 10.4 Hours (Idled for 3.2) Completed
Path of Giants Dec 2020 10/17 2 Hours Completed
Wandersong May 2019 64/75 13.1 Hours (Idled for 1.7) Completed
Youropa Jul 2017 7/14 6.4 Hours Completed

Control was a blast. I really enjoyed the mechanics and I do agree with people calling it a 3D metroidvania. It definitely feels like it fits the bill for that.
Also, (Control spoiler) The fake out credits screen was a trip. I didn't think the hedron sequence was the end, but I was not expecting that
The Frog Detective games continue to charm me as cute and funny bits. Too short, but still a nice and light-hearted experience.
Iris and the Giant was a game that made me feel more than I expected, not including frustration at the difficulty of it. Great story and a pretty cool deckbuilder.
Path of Giants was a pretty fun puzzle game. A bit too easy overall, but a pretty relaxing game and I enjoyed it.
Wandersong was absolutely adorable. Super interesting mechanically with almost no traditional style combat. Some of the platforming was tedious in execution, but overall, I absolutely adored it.
Youropa was interesting. It's a puzzle platformer, but the controls were awkward and the gimmick didn't feel complete. Honestly, if they had given more abilities to start with instead of a very slow progression, I think the game could've been a lot better. Still, it wasn't bad, but just felt like the initial concept was sound, but the nerfed the character too much to do less than they could've.

You played Wandersong too!
I think it's my favorite this month. But aaaaargh those damn gears! I'm not a skilled platformer and I almost gave up at that part.
Thankfully I did not because I loved the rest of the game.

Wandersong was really beautiful and I enjoyed a lot about it. Not flawless, but still a wonderful experience. I think it could've used a little more guidance with puzzles in some areas though.

Reviews:

Game Thoughts
Frog Detective 1 + 2 I felt absolutely nothing from these games. Despite being less than an hour each, they felt slow as hell, mainly because the dialogue is so drawn out. On top of that, every character is the same "quirky" archetype with virtually no variety. Would not recommend, would refund if I didn't get it in a bundle.
Wildfire Loved it, fantastic little stealth game with non-linear levels and plenty of ways to solve every challenge. Can't think of anything wrong with it, aside from the slightly underwhelming boss at the end. Definitely recommend, will play again.
XCOM 2 Liked it. The game does an excellent job enhancing and expanding on Enemy Unknown. RNG is pain.
Werewolf Liked it. Thought it took a while to get going but it's great when it does. Unfortunately it comes in a little short, though, but I definitely want to replay this one.
SOMA Existential dread/10, made me question existence several times. The monster sections could be a bit tedious but the narrative more than made up for them, overall, Soma was a game that'll stick with me forever.

I didn't get the enthusiasm about the Frog Detective games either. Very glad I didn't pay for those!
And even on the most basic level, there is zero investigation. You just talk and talk to people with long and bland dialog and you collect stuff and switch it around to other people.

Thanks for the heads up! Yeah, the Frog Detective games are very short and very silly. I enjoyed them, they have a sort of nostalgic charm to it that I really liked, but I can understand why others might find it too childish or dumb.

Finished Path of Giants. Next I think I'll play the sequel to that Frog Detective game that Fluffster loved so much last month... ๐Ÿ˜…
Frog Detective 2 is quite charming, and incredibly short ๐Ÿ˜
Control is great. Although I enjoyed the story/lore and atmosphere a lot more than the combat, such that the infinitely respawning enemies became quite tedious... ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
Finding Paradise turned out pretty well after a bit of a weak start, maybe I would have been more into it if I'd played the first one ๐Ÿ˜
Still There is excellent, very well written, although I don't think I completely understood it ๐Ÿค”
(Hard Reset Redux is bad, gonna give up on that one ๐Ÿ˜’)
Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows of New York is pretty good. I don't normally play/read visual novels but the world of VtM has always intrigued me (I never quite got around to trying the "proper" games Redemption or Bloodlines)

Nah. Played both and I can confirm the start of the game is slow. Takes them a little bit of time to get where they're going I guess.
Still There was a trip, to say the least. An emotional one but some things felt straight out of an arthouse Russian movie from the 60ies or something

Would you recommend To the Moon? Is it better than the second one? I think I started it a while ago, but I seem to remember I gave up before the story got going. ๐Ÿ˜…
I've not seen many Russian art-house movies ๐Ÿ˜‰ but yeah it was a bit weird, I couldn't tell which things were supposed to be real and which things were just in the guy's head. Unfortunately after reading the comments from the writer in the Steam discussions it looks they might not entirely know either, the phrase "open to interpretation" was used, which always kind of annoys me a bit... ๐Ÿ˜†

I wouldn't really recommend To the Moon if Finding Paradise didn't really strike your fancy. It's more of the same. I did find the story more immersive after a slow start, but it still plays a lot more like a visual novel with long dialogs than like an actual game, imo.

Heh yeah I've seen that. Makes me feel like a sucker but also makes me want to play the game again just to figure out what my interpretation really is. Double sucker I guess ;)
