Good morning Pixlpeeps! Apparently yesterday was Monday and I thought it was Sunday. Oh National Holidays. Anyways here I am, here you are, let’s get started with games I’ve been playing.

Chris Plays:

Forza Horizon 4 - XBox Game Pass: I decided to tackle the Winter Showcase to see what I am in store for and for the most part, it’s interesting. I mean its a lot more interesting than driving around looking for billboards and competing in various races. I was getting a little bored that I only had like 4 cars until I realized I had a ton in the in-game mailbox. I had a bunch of top cars so it was a lot of fun going really fast. There are a handful of supercars but I decided to go with the Fast and Furious life with the Nissan.

One thing that bothers me is that I have to wait for the voice guy to let me know I can go searching for barns. I found three barns (Thanks Google) but they wouldn’t unlock until voice said go find X barn. I’m also starting to lose interest in the game so we shall see how far I get until I decide to uninstall and find another interesting game on the PC side of Game Pass.


Paths Of Atlantis - iOS: This is one of free full games I found on the App Store thanks to Reddit that has zero DLC, and I can play offline. Paths of Atlantis is a puzzle game where you are a little soldier and you land on an island made of blocks where some are able to turn. You are given a set number of turns and you have to figure out a path to get your soldier from his spot, to the treasure chest at the other end of the island. There are gold coins around the island but I think most are there for you to burn turns to try and collect. Once you find the path, your soldier walks to the chest, collects coins, and you earn XP for your rank and level. The higher you go in rank you can unlock special moves that can be activated by purchasing them with your coins. The level is just for you to see how far you are in the game. I think this game is endless so the level is kind of pointless.

The one thing I noticed is after a while one puzzle keeps coming up and in one play I hit the same puzzle 6 or 7 times in a row. Great way to pad your stats to boos rank but it gets boring.


The puzzle isn’t hard


And here is the solution.

Overall I like the game, fun to play in short spurts, and you can’t go wrong.


Solitaire Klondike - iOS: If you ever played Solitaire from Windows 95 on up (no idea if it’s on Windows 10) this is basically the same game. You get the option between 1 card or 3 cards per deck, along with the option for a difficult deck. There’s no stats keeping but the game says it will be added eventually. This is how much fun I have had with this: I sat down to play maybe two games and before I knew it an hour went by. It’s simple, but it’s fun. No frills like my other Solitaire game, just a deck of cards and the table. Again no ads, no DLC, can play offline, and free. How can you go wrong?


Alright Pixlpeeps I am off. Have a good week!

That’s all for now, more later!

I don't know if the 3DS Nintendo eShop is still running, but one Solitaire game on it I got addicted to was Pocket Card Jockey.  It was so much fun!  It combined Solitaire racing?  Yeah.  It was also made by the same folks who did Pokemon.  It would work great on mobile devices.

I haven't checked in forever but that game sounds fun and something that would be perfect for mobile.

I think the barn finds are tied to your leveling up, or reputation I think they call it. You just keep doing stuff and eventually, a new one will appear. My favorite thing was finding all the roads. I had to look up some of the billboards after a while. Some of them are crazy hard to find. Sometimes doing a race will reveal one though. You only have to drive close to it for it to appear on the map.

Yeah I noticed that after finishing a race and leveling up I'll get the call. Makes sense considering if you just drive around you'll eventually hit find them. Finding all the roads seemms like a tall order but funny thing is I'm halfway through finding all of them. Hopefully I find all of them before my Pass runs out.

I found them all surprisingly fast, but some of the last ones were these tiny cul-de-sacs, more like driveways.

Oh, man, I hate the video game trope of "You can't technically unlock this thing you already know about until the wizard tells you it exists." Weird that trope would apply to barns ...

It sucks but it seems like one way developers use to keep players entertained instead of doing what I would do and find everything and then lose interest.

I'd really love to play a Forza game, but I'm not really into Xbox. If I get a gaming PC though, I'll try it on there.

Forza Horizon and MLB The Show are the two games I wish were available on Steam. I would sink a lot of time into those two games if they were on PC.
