I struggled with medical issues this month so did not accomplish much.

February 2022

This has been a very stressful month. My mental health is not very good. I failed my goal to complete 5 games this month, but I did complete 4! I almost stayed up late to force myself to complete one more game but decided gaming shouldn’t stress me out. I’ll play when I feel like it and consider any games finished a success. That being said, I’m way behind in my challenge that ends in March so I’m hoping to finish Bastion, The Banner Saga or Epistory (maybe both if I can!) and Fairy Fencer F Advent Dark Force which I’m in the middle of. Anyway, onto February’s successes!

Both of theses games are very cute. This one was personally my favorite. They are short visual novels with a few choices. They are virtually oriented for some reason even though they don't appear to have been made for phones. But I recommend them just for a cute short story.

Did I choose short games that I knew I could complete to feel like I accomplished something? Yes, yes I did. No regrets!

I enjoyed this simple minimalistic puzzle game. I completed it in one sitting (63 minutes). The puzzles aren't particularly challenging. It's far more relaxing than head scratching. It's very cheap and well worth the price.

I'm really enjoying this, but I need to pick up the pace or I'll never finish!

As always my goal is just to play games. I don’t know how some of you complete so many games every month, but I aspire to be like you! I’m going to up the ante and make a goal to complete more than I did this month in February, so at least 5 games. I’ll see you with a progress report in a month to see if I was successful!

This is a very short visual novel, but I think it depicts mental illness very well. I just wish it was longer. They are making a sequel, I belive.

This is the first of the 100 hidden games that I have played. I really enjoyed it. It is a hand-drawn hidden object game with a little bit of puzzling. It took me 21 minutes to beat and that was with taking several minutes to find the last eternal, which was of course in plain site.

A very cute visual novel with different paths you can take and multiple endings. The art is very good, and the background music is pleasant. Yella, the vampire, has full voice acting. There is a flow chart that makes it very easy to discover all of the paths. I think it is a very good deal for the asking price.

I started both Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and Skyrim, which have taken up a bit of my time. I’m a bit motivated right now so the goal is to complete several games this November!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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!
