There were so many games to play this month. So many that I almost lost what little reason I have and went "Let's play ALL the games!". Not trying that was the wisest choice because even the ones I decided to play didn't get as much time in them as I wished due to a combination of general lack of energy and being busy with Blaugust.
I'd like this next month to at least keep playing the new ones and making some progress on them though. But we'll see how the month turns out.
Alright, this is what I have been up to this month:
July has been the most intensive month this year for me thanks to Shadowbringers. I loved it so much that I could already declare it Game of the Year. The only other contender for the title could be Fire Emblem Three Houses but since I haven't gotten it yet I can't say anything about it.
And yes, I know there are still months until the year ends and a lot of other games that haven't been released yet. I do expect them to be good games too but I doubt any of them will make me feel the same way as the journey through Shadowbringers did. 🙂
Anyway, let's get to the topic of this post, shall we?
Another month that at the same time felt long and too short at the same time. I guess in this case it is because I finally sorted some real life things I have been putting off for a long time and because I didn't play all the games I wanted to (isn't that always the case?) due to tiredness and overall terrible mood.
This month should be pretty busy in terms of game releases so maybe this pattern will change. For now this is what I've been playing:
I avoided making one of these posts last month since I feared I wouldn't be writing anything for the rest of the month and I didn't one this blog to turn into just a one post a month about whatever games I am playing.
This month however I am more confident I will be writing about more than that. Plus I haven't written in too long and I'd like to rectify that. :p
Anyhoo, this is what has been keeping me busy, gamewise, in the last couple of months.
The month of February this year has been strange. It at the same time felt very long and not long enough. I have no clue why it felt like the first but the latter felt like that because I didn't get to play as much of the games as I wanted to. The reason for that are various. I was either feeling sick, tired, distracted with something else or there was some heavy rain going on and I didn't want to risk losing my net connection/power.
Because of that the games I end up playing wasn't all too different from January nor did I did as much progress in them as I wished for.
Anyway, these are the games that I have been journeying through:
I had planned to play so many different games this month but in the end I only played a few of them. Which is pretty much my life in a nutshell: make lots of plans, grossly underestimate the amount of time and/or effort they will take then fail at them or end up doing something completely different. /sigh
The fact that it has been scorching hot around here hasn't helped either. That kind of temperature just saps my desire to do... well, pretty much anything.
Anyway, here is what has been happening in the electronic lands haunted by the urban legend monster called Rakuno.
My attempts to set monthly gaming goals for myself didn't work out again. This was in large part because the last time I set one of those I fell into a bout of depression that left me with little desire to do anything, even playing games.
Then I got distracted by other games and decided to just stop setting the goals as I would just be repeating the same goals over and over and not achieving any of them. I can just be stubborn that way.
I figured out that instead of repeating this cycle which only lead to more frustration perhaps a different approach might be better. I will just do a monthly report of what I have been playing and how far I got into the games in question.
