August 2021

I started the month out strong, but then depression hit pretty hard. I beat all of these in like the first week of August and had big plans but life wasn’t cooperating.

This is the first Lego game I have beaten. I really enjoyed it, especially the Lego humor it added to the story.

I’m still playing around in this (Lego LOTR) game. Should I try to 100% it or should I move on to one of the 2000 other games in my backlog?

This is a fun little puzzle game. I found it relaxing and enjoyed my time with it. I thought the music fit it well. Easy achievements (one for completing each level) if you are into that. I would recommend.

I really enjoyed this. The story pulled me in from the beginning. I eagerly consumed it, trying to spread it out over a few days. I'm apparently a slow reader and it took me 5.5 hours. It fits a lot into that time. And I love the way they worked in the sounds and music! I highly recommend it.

I finished the One Night In The Woods DLC for this game. So yes, the art is good and the soundtrack's not bad. But it took me only 15 minutes to beat this dlc. I would only recommend it on sale. Not worth full price.

It is short and easy, but very fun. The characters are adorable and humorous. It is a relaxing way to spend a couple hours.

Overall I think it has been a good month. My anxiety is like sky high for a certain, temporary reason, so I’ve been playing a lot of comforting video games. I’m addicted to Coloring Pixels which is a color by number game. I’ve been playing that instead of working on my backlog. But I still made some progress! I’m going to do the same thing for August that I did for July and not make any specific goals. My goal is just to play video games. No stress.

I won some really great games this month that I’m looking forward to playing.

I’m not going to make goals for July. They stress me out and I never seem to meet them. I’m simply going to play games.

April/May 2021

Just a quick update. I traveled most of May so no games then. April I only completed one small game. But I wanted to keep my monthly progress posts up anyway.

Goals for June
I’d like to finally finish Ni No Kuni II. I also started and am close to the end of Lara Craft Go and should finish that. For PAGYWOSG I want to start and finish Lego: Lord of the Rings. Hopefully I can also slay a few more games this month to make up for the last two!

March 2021

It was a pretty good month for me, I think.

My goal for April is to finish Ni No Kuni II, which I intended to finish in March but got derailed.

February 2021

This month was better for me, depression wise. I won Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom and honestly that cheered me up quite a bit. This will probably sound stupid but it was sort of a reminder that the world doesn’t all suck.

This is actually a free to play game on Steam. I purchased the DLCs during the winter sale and just finished them this month. It's a kooky text based humorous game.

Overall a good month for me. For March I hope to finish Ni No Kuni II and hopefully a couple more games.

I stated the month strong with big plans, but alas, I have found myself struggling with depression and motivation. Anyway, I did accomplish a little.

It's a simple match-3 game. You can choose your play mode: swap, pop, or chain, but I think it is only possible to win all the levels with swap. You can play with a turn limit (challenge mode), or unlimited. I enjoyed it while listening to podcasts.

It's a nonogram game, and it is good. I prefer Paint it Back, but this one has community content so you can play nonograms created by other users, or even create some yourself, so there is basically unlimited play value.

I try to "play" this almost every day, but especially when I'm feeling down. I try to go on and reply to others helpfully and kindly and sometimes write requests myself. It's all anonymous. It's a great community. It's a great way to counteract the negativity of day to day living. Highly recommend.
