Vacations & August Video Game Challenge Progress Report

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 it is the last week of August (time flies fast!), I didn’t get as much gaming done as I would have liked. I’m not saying I didn’t play any of August’s pick Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations. In fact, I managed to finish one chapter that has been waiting to be completed for a long time. The only real problem was I haven’t been able to start the next chapter since finishing the last one I played.


I know August isn’t officially over yet and there’s still time to see if I can finish it, but it’s highly unlikely when I’m going away on vacation in a few days. If you’ve been following my blog for a long time now, you must be thinking, “Gee, this girl sure loves to go away on vacation.” Admittedly, I do like going away on vacation as long as I still have days to take off from work. I go places. It’s how I unwind from the daily grind of my life. Knowing how I am, I won’t get any real gaming done on this trip, even if I plan on bringing my handheld with me during my one week vacation.

This month’s challenge may be a failure, but there’s still many more months in the year left to do more gaming. Well, maybe you may see this challenge get thrown out the window by the time Dragon Age: Inquisition comes out in November. All bets will be off by then because I can’t resist the allure of Dragon Age and this game has been my most anticipated game of 2014. No other game will compare when Dragon Age is in my possession.

There won’t be any new post on my blog or on Geek Force Network next week. Catch up with me again the second week of September when I select my next game to play for that month.

  1. That’s too bad about Phoenix Wright…ah well, as you said there are other months. I’m super psyched for Dragon Age: Inquisition too! …Which might be a problem considering how I’m probably going to still be buried in Destiny by the time it comes out. (Stupid responsibilities…so much to do, so little time to game!)

    As for the challenge series, perhaps it could be converted to going for challenges in Dragon Age or something. I think it would be fun to have extra opportunities to talk about Dragon Age!

    Oh, and enjoy your trip!

  2. I love vacations too, but this summer I overdosed. Now, I’m looking forward to being at home! 🙂 Hope you have a great time off — the games will be waiting for you when you get back.

    P. S. I’ll be on the DA:I bandwagon come November as well. Can’t wait!

    1. I definitely will! And where I’m going will be super fun. 🙂 I’m sure there will be a flood of Dragon Age related articles all over the interwebs come November and beyond! I’m excited to write my thoughts and impressions about the game as I play.

    1. It’s an obvious choice. 😉 Only problem is that I doubt I’ll get that game done in a month. I read to complete the game in its entirety will take at least 200 hours! It’ll be a challenge over several months.

      1. Yeah, that’s very true. I couldn’t believe it when I read 200 hours for completionist run throughs. Plus, don’t forget the multiplayer they just announced a couple days ago. We’ll all be playing this thing for ages
