Winter’s chill is thawing and the weather is beginning to get warmer and nicer. At least that’s the hope for many parts of the country, even if it may not seem like it. Our days of spending a lot of time indoors may be waning with the spring weather beckoning us to go outside. What does this mean with my video game challenge? Let’s find out how far I got with Spirit of Justice this month.
A challenge isn’t a challenge if there aren’t some bumps along the way. After a delayed start with my video game challenge at the beginning of the new year, I managed to pick things back up with Spirit of Justice as promised this month. We’re in the final week of February and it’s time to report on how far I’ve gotten with the game.
When a month is about to close out, I typically end with a video game progress report ever since I implemented my video game challenges a few years ago. I admittedly didn’t get much game time in as I thought I would. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t done some geeky stuff behind the scenes in January!
The holiday season is upon us. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and some of us are now preparing for Christmas. It’s the one time of year where everyone gets hit with one holiday after another. After taking a few days to recover from the food induced coma and the traveling shuffle from one gathering to another, we’re back at it again to start making those lists of holiday gifts to buy for loved ones or get our homes dressed up to the nines with festive decorations. It’s a busy time for us all and it’s any wonder if all collective gamers can find time in their tight schedules to add a few hours of video game time. In a wrap up of November, let’s see how I did with Spirit of Justice.
On the day before Halloween, it’s almost fitting to have Spirit of Justice my current ongoing video game challenge. Halloween is more than just dressing up in costume or eating your way through a bar or two of Snickers. It’s also about ghost stories and spirits that may still haunt the land of the living. Or in the case of this entry of the Ace Attorney series — get the justice the dead deserve. There’s no rest for the wicked and it’s time to see how much further I’ve gotten with the game.
As the weather gets cooler and our days grow shorter, it’s starting to become the perfect time to snuggle in with a video game or two. My summer in video games has been pretty solid with much of it occupied with Mass Effect: Andromeda, knocking out some additional video games in the span of a month, and completing Dual Destinies last month. Getting closer to being all caught up with the Ace Attorney series, it made sense to make my next video game challenge for September the last (but maybe not final) game of the series Spirit of Justice.
Summer is here, which means a chance to get away for that long overdue vacation to someplace exotic or a short trip to visit family. Whether it’s a long or short trip, and you’re a gamer, it also means spending time away from your console or PC. As gamers, we love our games but we also have lives outside of Mario and Zelda. How can a gamer have their cake and eat it too? If you own a portable game system, like a Nintendo 3DS or even a Nintendo DS, you bring that with you on the road. Here’s my personal five fun games I’ve taken with me on trips to pass the time between flights or rest stops. The list will focus on games that can be played on the Nintendo 3DS.

When you set out to accomplish a goal for yourself, you often have to expect the unexpected and be flexible. What I’ve learned from doing my video game challenges is to be open to what life throws at you and make the necessary adjustments to work around sudden developments to still be able to achieve what you want to do. My most recent challenge involved a lot of adjustments because of vacations and other responsibilities cropping up, but I sorted through all of them to make finishing this particular game something I wouldn’t allow myself to neglect anymore. Let me say that persistence and determination will always win no matter what happens in your life. That being said, it’s finally time to report on my progress with Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations.
Challenges don’t really scare me. I take them on because I’m either trying to prove something to myself or there’s something I want to accomplish. Video game challenges are obviously smaller and won’t have a huge impact on my life, whether I finish them or not. Yet, I keep doing them because they’re a fun kind of challenge and it keeps me focused on completing one video game at a time. Unfortunately, I may have juggled too many balls in the air for almost two months to get my current challenge done.
Judging from the title of this post, you probably guessed my next video game challenge will be rather special and different. It’s not so much the video game I’m selecting is special, unlike when I did Dragon Age: Inquisition for my challenge, it’s more like the circumstances surrounding my next challenge is.
