    Nov 8th, 2018 at 21:46:22     -    1979 Revolution: Black Friday (PC)

    I have now beaten the game. It was a lot shorter than I expected it to be, it took me just under 2 hours to complete. The game's story was very good and the style/game play was also done very well. Being able to feel like you are actually participating in the revolution and making impactful decisions made the game quite entertaining. The only down sides I have for the game, is that most of the decisions you have to make you do not know the entire context of the situation. Which makes it hard to chose the "right" thing to do. I could have missed some things though, but I really tried to inspect and do everything I could possibly find, so when it came to those important decisions I had a good idea of everything going on and knew what to do.
    Another thing that was a bit of a problem was some small bugs here and there. There will be times where you go to inspect something and pick it up and you get stuck on that screen and no matter what you do or press you cannot exit out of it. It made me have to start over on a couple of chapters but it was not too big of a deal.
    The game really made you chose between two or three very different options most of the time. Mostly there was at least one that was obviously considered morally wrong to most people, such as wrongfully killing someone. And another that could be considered morally right, such as helping a wounded person. I really used my own morals to make decisions, because the in game timer forced you to make a decision quick, and I could not really apply too much from class to help make my choices.

    Played about another hour of the game. Really enjoying the story so far. There are a lot of conflicting interests with a lot of the characters. Your family members seem to be on various different sides, and the game is beginning to make me choose what side to be on. It is quite a hard choice because this game has the tendency to put me in scenarios to make choices on things that I have no idea about ( I learn about them later on). I want to side with my family members but if I side with one of them, I usually end up betraying another. The game does become stressful as well, and I have gotten other characters killed unintentionally. Which the game tries to make you feel bad about. Overall I am really liking the game so far. It is like watching a long movie, but I get to change the story and participate at certain moments, and it makes the game quite enjoyable!

    I have just played about an hour into the game so far. It has a really good story! But, not all of it is explained most of the time. This game is made up of decisions that you make, and the decisions you get to chose from usually are things that you do not know or fully understand yet. And with such a quick timer for you to make your choices, the game forces to make decisions you normally wouldn't have, or just the wrong ones (I have already died once). The character animations look really nice overall. And I like all the quick time events and reactions you have to do in the game, it makes it so you have to really pay attention the whole time! But, it makes it a little too tense at moments because I always want to make the "right" choice, the choice I feel that I would truly make if I was actually in the situation myself, but I always seem to run out of time. The game seems to be historically accurate as there all real pictures put side by side to the ones I have to take in the game of the revolution. Which leads me to believe that the story of the game is loosely based on true events, and that makes the game seem a lot more intriguing.

    Really enjoying this game! I am now well over 3-4 hours in, and the story just gets better and better! A new character has just been introduced to the main story, a man named Vargas. He is the leader of another mafia/crime organization. He is competing with the Sands, the mafia group I was helping before. But, he seems like a slightly cooler guy so I have now decided to help him, and get rid of the Sands. With two mafia/crime organizations in the city, there has been a lot more crime, and I have been made to choose to help one group or the other. To make things a little more complicated, smaller criminals are starting to do bigger and bigger criminal activities. Not only was there a man trying to commit suicide on the bridge but there were 5 armed mean with automatic weapons killing people at the docs and the two major mafia groups going at it, all at the same time! I had just lost 3 officers for questioning, whatever the purpose for that may be. And it was really hard to spread out my remaining officers to all the areas.
    Not only am I now short on officers, and overwhelmed with criminal activity at multiple points in the city. I now have to please the mayor, and have my police force, detectives and officers, at least half be female. I have a 3 day deadline, which will come before I can ask the mayor for a favor, such as adding another slot to hire officers, or get a pay increase. Which would help a lot, but that is not going to happen. This will be an interesting couple of in-game days to see how it all pans out, and changes the story.
