Hi! Aiori is here. It’s been a time since I wrote something on BLAEO. So with the new year, I decided to do something about this.
I had different plans for starting the year, but I started 2022 with COVID, fortunately, I was previously vacuumed, so the symptoms were weaker. However, I passed some bad days, and it’s a strange virus, giving me different symptoms each day. I expect to be well next weekend.
And what were you doing all this time, Aiori? Work + being dad, even sometimes both at the same time. I’ve finished my last work project, and I will start to prepare the next when I will be recovered.
Also, what are you going to do with your backlog? My idea is to manage better my time, sometimes even I forgot to have free time, and that it’s not good for my health, so I have to do it. And of course, playing video games is one of my main hobbies. So I will try to reduce my backlog…again. At least, one of the main steps is done, I barely bought anything last year, but free games, birthday gifts and trades are still there, but in a minor dose too.
In 2021, I completed 16 games, it’s an advance, there are 2 less than in 2020, but is something. Also, the number of new games was lowered, bought on sales and no more. Even in the blog that I collaborate with, the charge is less this season. Moreover, in the last sale I restrained myself from buying more too, and only got 3 games that I know that I’m going to play.
So my idea to fight the backlog is going to play 1 HOG because they are short, 1 “main” game, and 1 game or 2 for reviewing. And if the main game takes more than 1 month, no problem. I will try to do some plans here again too.
Finally, I want to thank this community, and especially Ninglor for accepting me in the last Secret Santa event, I love this event. And Jaded for the Disco Elysium game, which I will play soon, for sure.
Let’s see how 2022 comes. Stay safe!
