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.
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.
Some of you might feel a bit confused by the number on the title if you haven’t been following my ongoing video game challenge series for the blog. The number corresponds to the last time I played Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies when it was my spotlight game to finish in a month. Or rather, over the next few months. It was set aside to play Mass Effect: Andromeda back in March until I satisfactorily beat the game. With Andromeda done and off my backlog list, I decided to turn my attention back to Dual Destinies for the month of August. Quick warning, there will be light spoilers about Dual Destinies.
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.
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.

After taking a brief break from my video game challenges to gleefully play Final Fantasy XV a bit longer, February became the month I would dutifully return to my ongoing video game challenge with Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies. Has Dual Destinies become the comeback kid for video game challenges this month?
It’s the day after Christmas and New Year’s is poised to have its turn in the holiday spotlight. As some of us are recovering from another holiday of eating, drinking, and successfully navigating a boisterous get together with loved ones, I’m taking some time to dutifully give you my end of the month progress report with my ongoing video game challenge.
