Gotta Play' Em All! Lengray’s profile
I usually have more time to play games in spring and this year was no exception. I've subscribed to Game Pass for the first time and it might just be the solution to my backlog problem. As you can see below, I've been busy and managed to beat some games I'd been playing for months like Zelda or Ring Fit Adventure (which I keep playing, of course). I really enjoyed the coziness of the new Coffee Talk and the 3D Adventure Time game was a very nice surprise. I have quite a few games in-progress which I'll try to beat over the summer but I'm not putting any pressure on myself. Hope you have a great summer and see you in September!
I haven't posted in a while because I've decided to switch from monthly posts to quarterly ones. I feel it gives me more flexibility and shows my progress a little better. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with how I've played so far this year. There weren't many disappointments and sinking time into ESO and Twilight Princess has been a blast. I guess my objective for the next quarter will be to beat all those unfinished games and play some new ones on the Switch.
First, I wish you all the best for 2023 when it comes and hope you'll get the upper hand over your backlog!
This fall, my gaming time was spread over a lot of games but I still managed to beat quite a few. To keep things simple, I'm not going to publish any stats for 2022 as they are dreadful (but not nearly as bad as 2021's) and I'm not going set any precise objectives for 2023 either. I'll just try to focus on the stuff I already own.
Not much to report this month except that the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater remake is excellent and just as fun as the originals. About two years ago, I backed Airoheart, which was released yesterday, and I'm really excited to play it this month.
True to my decision of cutting my gaming time to enjoy other activities, I don't have much to show for August. However, the game I played is the first (of two) I backed on Kickstarter and despite some slight narrative and translation issues, it was pretty good. See ya in a month!
I didn't play much in July but did some serious soul-searching. Without going into details, the conclusion is that video games simply use up too much of my free time and I can't keep up with the growth of my backlog. For those two reasons, I've decided to leave SteamGifts, stay away from games deals websites and just take my sweet time enjoying the games I already have. An immediate consequence is that I'm going to fail the 2022 goals I had set for myself, which were all about numbers. I'm going to scrap the lot and replace them with the simple wish to finish the year with fewer games in my backlog than I have now.
I don't have much to report for June except that one of my objectives for this year (spend no more than 100 euros on games) is now in a fail state :/ Too many good bundles and interesting bargains, I guess. I'll have to be careful and seriously work on the backlog during the second half of the year if I don't want to fail all my other objectives.
May in one word: variety. Longish games, short ones, good ones and meh ones. The highlight is definitely Citizen Sleeper. I hardly ever buy games on release but since I liked In Other Waters very much, I was really curious about what its dev would pull off next. And boy, is it good! I've also dropped my first game this year, Sniper Elite, which I found so repetitive that I couldn't bring myself to finish it.
