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.

A Month In Video Games And Looking Toward August

Normally, this is about the time I would have a report about my latest progress with the video game I chose to finish in a month posted. If you followed along with me so far, you would know I managed to finish my ongoing video game challenge with Mass Effect: Andromeda a lot sooner than I had originally anticipated. Rather than choose an official video game challenge to replace the one I finished, I decided to use the rest of the month to play whatever game I wanted. I’ve done well in the backlog department, and I’m here to recap the games I completed or have been playing with a formal announcement on what video game I’ll be focusing on for August.
