Video Games Overview: Games Played and Currently Playing

We’re a few weeks into the new year and I have dipped a toe in some games that have been a part of my exceedingly long backlog list. As I mentioned in my last post, I have flitted from game to game, starting some but not really hunkering down on a specific one. After using the time off I had during the holidays, there were a couple I finished just before New Year’s Eve and one that has stood out as my game to play for the next few months.

New Year, Same Goals

A brand new year means a new beginning. A chance to start over and do something differently. If you’re the type of person to believe in that sort of thing. Maybe what isn’t so different are the goals or intentions you set for the year. The common ones are usually lose weight, eat healthy, or quit bad habits. How successful you are at actually accomplishing these things depends on your motivation and commitment. Why else are these the usual ones people start off saying they will do only for it to fall by the wayside after a month?

While the above aren’t the type of goals I set for myself in the new year, mine are more of the same ever since I started doing them a few years ago. Why change them when it has been easy to achieve year after year, right?

Missing The Target: Being Okay With Not Hitting Every Goal

At the start of every new year I always like setting a goal for myself to aim for, whether it’s video games to complete to reading a certain amount of books in a year. I am a very goal oriented person and I pride myself in hitting my target each and every time. As we count down the weeks that still remain of 2022, my list of goals have been off the mark.

New Video Game Hype? More Like New Video Game “Eh”

Every year there’s maybe one or two video games that has me anticipating its upcoming releases. You’re counting down the months until you finally get it in your hands (or console with the popularity of digital downloads), and once it finally is, that game becomes your whole world for another few months.

As we near the end of the year and I review the new games I have bought, it actually isn’t much.

Your Room Is A Reflection Of You: Adding A Bit Of Geeky Flair To My Bedroom

The last few months have been a non-stop project of settling in and furnishing the new apartment I moved into. Every furniture and their placement has been carefully considered to put together a room the way I want it. Until now I’m nowhere near done with getting every room setup. There’s still plenty more furniture to buy and small accents to tie everything together. But one room I’m almost finished with is my bedroom, and it reflects everything I have loved since I was a kid.

Video Game Review: As Dusk Falls

Part of the allure of narrative, choice-based video games is the chance to steer the story towards a particular outcome. Whether it’s a good one or not depends on the big and small decisions a player makes. Developer Interior/Night’s newest game As Dusk Falls takes the best of the narrative choice-based genre to create a sophisticated and surprising storytelling experience.

Playing Catch Up: What I Have Been Focusing In On With Video Games, Books, And Television

At the beginning of each year I like to set some small goals with the leisure activities I enjoy taking part in. That mainly includes going back to my video game backlog and finishing up anything that still needs to be played, reading a certain amount of books before the end of the year, and trying to watch as many shows as I can with all the numerous streaming platforms now at our fingertips.

My recent move to a new apartment has thrown me off track with what I set out to do with my hobbies, but I’m taking it in stride and seeing what I can still accomplish before we say goodbye to the year 2022.

The Video Game Nostalgia Wave: The Comfort Of Returning To Older Gaming Devices

Each console or handheld generation gets updated every few years. The tech is newer and shinier, and the capabilities are greater than what came before. For instance, the Nintendo Switch has become groundbreaking in what it means to game on the go or stationed on a dock to play at home. Whatever your needs are, the Switch has become the gaming device to adjust accordingly. As we move further and further away from what has become outdated and no longer “in”, sometimes, I do appreciate going back to what once was the darling of the gaming world.
