There seems to be a trend going on that whenever there’s an uptick in unexpected social activity on my calendar and a vacation looming up ahead in the coming weeks, my poor video game challenges tend to fall to the wayside. You can probably tell where I’m going with this post.
As a kid, I always loved watching TV and there was always a show I wanted to watch. Being a kid born in the ’80s and having grown up towards the end of that decade and into the ’90s, I stand by my firm belief that the best television shows have come out around those times. At least when it comes to the sitcom format. I’d religiously watch each and every episode of Full House, Family Matters, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends, Boy Meets World, and the list stretches quite endlessly. These days, I barely watch much TV anymore. Part of it has to do with being too busy a lot of the time and the other half of it being there isn’t a ton of shows I’m willing to invest my spare time on. And in those rare times where there are shows actually worth watching, being able to binge watch anything is easier said than done.
A few weekends ago saw the debut of Rei Hino, aka Sailor Mars, in the latest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal. Knowing that the newer anime will be following Naoko Takeuchi’s manga more closely, it was one of my most anticipated episodes to watch. I was not disappointed when I saw the “true” Rei come to life before my eyes.
Summer is nearly over and so is most of the year already. I’ve played four games in total and managed to successfully complete three out of the four I’ve played. It may not seem like much, but I feel like my backlog is getting just a little lighter with each game I choose for my challenges. Even when the end of the year suddenly sneaks up on us when we aren’t looking, there will always be games to be played. This month’s challenge will take me to a different device and a game that’s more character and story driven like last month’s challenge.
