What is Game of the Month Club?
Game of the Month is a community project open to all B8ers where users share, discover, play and/or discuss a select few games every month. The games featured each month are chosen by YOU the users (and Lady Luck)

The Basics
- Each month will usually feature three games that were chosen via a random drawing from a pool of games that users nominated
- For each game you beat, you get a cool point on our just-for-fun standings as well as a nomination for next month's randomized drawing
- In order to receive the point and nomination, you must beat said game within the calendar month
- If you beat one of the current month's games in the previous month, you can apply for a "recently beaten waiver," but you will only receive a point and no nomination should you do so
- Drawing for next month's games is usually around a week before the end of the month
- If you periodically keep us posted on your progress and/or talk about different aspects of the games, then everyone will think you are super awesome!

Nomination Rules
- You get one nomination automatically each month
- You receive additional nominations each month for every selected game that you beat
- Each game you nominate has to be unique from all other nominations and cannot include a game that has already been selected for GotM
- Each game must be a standalone game that can be acquired and played on its own (aka cannot be DLC/expansion that requires the base game)
- Nominations only carry over if you beat a selected game after the drawing for next month's games but before the end of the month
- As a special rule for 2021, you have 11 supports you can use throughout the year. Your only limitations are that you can't support your own nomination, and you can only use one support per game per month

Day 1 progress:
I died a lot. Mostly to the 2nd boss after I learned how to handle the first boss. Got an Artifact that made me more certain on how to build after the first battle on my latest run, which got me all the way to the 4th boss where I died to the violin girl. But then it gave me pity Gunner, so at least I have a new character.

ArkOfTurus has beaten One Step From Eden

I expected that to take a lot longer than it did. Ended up winning with a Saffron fire-heavy deck on the pacifist route. Turns out not having to aim much helps a lot, who knew? I still have no idea how to even get close to beating the game with half of these characters, though.

Well, if a self-proclaimed bad gamer beat Eden in a few days, maybe there is hope for me when I get around to it.

I started Lost Legacy last night. Based on Nadine's situation, I am assuming that this game takes place after the events of 4. I have cleared several chapters but have yet to shoot a gun.

Yes, I believe it takes place after 4. It's like 1/4 to 1/3 of the game time length if I'm remembering right. It's all the fun of U4 in less time.

I beat 4th stage boss for the first time, so a little further. I enjoyed my first run with Hazel.

I am on Chapter 4 of Lost Legacy, or rather I have been there for a few days now. It is an open-ended one where the map just gives you a general idea and isn't really there to aid you, so I have to be in the right mood to tackle that.

I began One Step from Eden. I'm enjoying it, but I'm really just running around constantly, looking what space my spells will affect, and just hoping that I don't get hit or die. I know this "strategy" is going to be the end of me eventually, but I cleared two zones so far! I didn't know that I could spare the bosses, so I killed the first one, and I meant to spare the second one, but I was trying out my non-attack spells to see if any had any healing effects, but I guess non-attack spells also kill the boss.

I definitely had more success once I started going off of feel, but there are definitely builds that that wouldn't work for at all, so it could work out for you.

Anyway,

Nominate Disco Elysium and Record of Lodoss War- Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth

I do remember a part of Lost Legacy that I got stuck on and had to use a guide to figure out where to go/what to do next, one of the rare moments in the entire series where I was just completely stumped, and this sounds like it was it.

Been playing more One Step from Eden. I've beaten it with every character except Violette (seems doable) and Shisho (seems rough.) Spent the most time unlocking Saffron's third style. I beat Serif on my first attempt, but it took many tries to get a good enough run going to survive while killing the shopkeeper.

Support Mass Effect

I've finally played One Step from Eden. Or rather, made it to the... 4th boss before dying?

Felt like I was just picking random stuff at every opportunity.

The best choice in attacks is pretty often not to take one. Sticking to one or two categories will probably help until you know the game better.

KCF has beaten Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

While featuring the same features as previous entries, I found it interesting that they changed up the composition with combat taking a big backseat to platforming and puzzle solving. Because it doesn't have its own multiplayer, I probably would rank it fourth as best in the series, but it could be my second favorite campaign in the series depending on the day.

I've made it to the final boss in One Step from Eden twice after I went pretty far with both Hazel and Selicy, I just went back to Saffron since two lives and got to Terable twice before being eliminated by her. It's rough, but I'll keep trying.

I played Eden some more and did die to that third zone boss. I was mad at myself because they had almost no health when they took me out. I'm still on my second run, but I've made it to the fourth zone with plenty of health. Sparing bosses is definitely the way to go.
