My quest to continue playing horror games in Spooktober has been continuing quite nicely!
I played PLAYDEAD’s Limbo and Inside. I 100% Inside thanks to Maka91Productions’ excellent walkthrough!
After my frustrations with my complete reliance on YouTube guides for Limbo (I was quite a few different ones), I found a Complete Guide for Inside and just decided to do the entire thing along side with Maka. I got stuck on the very first mind control section and in his commentary, he metioned “another secret location” and I had found one on my own but had missed three prior. So I just started all over and I saw his video was nearly two hours so I spent the bulk of my Sunday playing the game.
Maka made a reference to following him and I figured by that point in the video, I really should.
Inside feels like Limbo’s cool older brother (though I suppose it is Limbo’s younger brother). The graphics are mutlicolored and the adventure feels very streamlined. There are puzzles but they did not seem as confusing as Limbo’s.
I just generally liked Inside more, which might explain why the title comes first on the box art.
Limbo, once I started thinking about writing this post, I committed to just using one person’s walkthroughs.
I used KillerSnowTiger’s videos towards the end. I started with Chapter 32 but I am sure I needed help starting with Chapter 28. I was just getting frustrated and it was annoying me that I needed as much help as I did. But I got through it and I am glad I committed to playing Inside as I would have missed out on a very terrific game.
So for my money : Inside > Limbo.
Inside’s ending sequence is something else!

Typing about giving up, I had to stop playing Darksiders Warmastered as I could not defeat, or come close at all, Tiamat. Most of the advice I read essentially boiled down to, upgrade your sword. Which I no longer have as an option. I might try it again once the feeling strikes me but I think I am ready to tackle Darksiders II again as I get the mechanics a little better now.
Here is how MrBooza23 did it.
I see most people did the fight in under 11 minutes so maybe I should try to get gud and attempt it again. I was having a great time leading up to this fight but I tried for an entire hour and was making no progress so that just felt defeating and I have plenty of games that I can play.
I suppose I could also lower the difficulty (I think?) and get pass it that way too but that doesn’t feel great to do.
. . .
I committed to playing Dead by Daylight after seriously thinking of counting the DLCs I have bought as a lost but I had such a great time that I am going to really start playing it more again. I was actually doing pretty great and was getting matched with very helpful survivors. Heck, I even earned a trophy! The Adept Dwight one! I also made progress in other trophies, so I am here again! Only a few times did the connection get lost and then it claimed it was continuing to search but it seemed like the game was just frozen as it would not let me cancel out.
PSPrices informed me Dead by Daylight was having a massive sale (excluding the Stranger Things DLC – once this is under ten dollars, I am buying it!) so I bought the Curtain Call DLC.
Thanks to DeadByDaylight for hosting their own video!
Of course, I have not played as The Clown nor Kate but I have them so that’s pretty nice.
During those nights I was playing, I only accomplished two of my dailies. Unhook four survivors as Dwight and mow down four survivors as the Cannibal. I could not manage to open an exit as Ash. I was super close but the Spirit took out the gal behind me and then took me out. I thought I had enough time to at least trigger the exit doors to open but I should have ran off instead and came back but I was obsessed.
My main goal right now, as I keep having to use Ash, is to locate the basement and open the chest down there. I believe I have done it at least ten times so twenty more and I get a trophy. Which all leads to the Open 100 Chests trophy so I might as well target the basement first, so then I know I have at least 30.
. . .
I completed the first episode of Life is Strange. I know the series gets more suspenseful but it did not quite feel spooky enough for me so I will attempt it some more later. It does take place prior to Halloween so it is at least in season.
. . .
The game I am currently committed to playing Let It Die, which is a free game. I am currently at Level 10 but barely made it to the second floor. I am taking the coward’s way of being notified I have leveled up and then running back to The Waiting Room and using my points to officially level up and take the elevator back to where I was. Once I get my first trophy, I will probably move on to a different game but it has been pretty fun.
. . .
I found an excellent Claire Extended text walkthrough but then I died and I have no idea how to get from where I was to the last save point so I am done with that game. I had several trophies but I already knew the game was not for me but it pretty interesting.
. . .
My plan is to get a trophy in Let It Die and then end the month with Man of Medan and making all Head decisions so that will be my final game.
I was looking through the Halloween Sale and saw Deus Ex : Mankind Divided and I thought I could sneak that in either before Man of Medan or right afterwards. That is another game that I will commit to getting the first trophy and probably put the game away for a while.
We are only two days away from being told what the November Free Games are! I am so excited! If Burnout Paradise Remastered is not one of the games, I am going to buy it as soon as it is six dollars again!
