A weekly post updated every other Tuesday detailing my current gaming projects. I have an account at Grouvee, which is a site you can use to keep track of your backlog, so please feel free to friend me there!
What I Received
- A box of games from Cheap Boss Attack – an early Christmas surprise, a bunch of games for super cheap to add to my collection and backlog 🙂
- Yo-Kai Watch
- Shining Resonance Refrain – the question of whether or not to buy or pass on this was kind of answered for me, since I couldn’t pass up a deal. I think you can set the battle to easy so I can just enjoy the story.
- Divinity: Original Sin
- Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception – I need to learn how to pronounce this. I kept copying and pasting the name because it’s too difficult to spell.
- Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth
- Pillars of Eternity
- Blue Reflection
- $50 Nintendo Switch GC – It’s the big one with Bowser on it, too! I got this from my big bro ♥
- Jurassic World Evolution – I received this as a Christmas present from my parents-in-law who are serious about buying gifts. They go all out for the holiday every year. I’ll discuss more below, but I actually received two of them. My husband and his mother didn’t communicate, and she went out and bought the first eleven things on my list (I’m…not kidding). I have the gift receipt so I’m going to exchange one for Nier Automata, which was also on my list.
What I Played
Title: Octopath Traveler
System: Nintendo Switch
I actually didn’t play any of this the past two weeks; it’s been so busy. I still want to finish it before the end of the year. I’m off tomorrow so I might try to get it in then!
Title: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Series Title: Mario Kart
System: Nintendo Switch
Lightning Ellen and I got our weekly Mario Kart in, which is always a good time! Bowser on a tiny little scooter is the most adorable and hilarious thing ever 😀
What I Watched
Title: Stories Untold
Let’s Player: Cryaotic
Date Started: 11/29/18
Date Finished: 12/14/18
I challenge anyone to claim they’ve seen or played a horror game like this. It is singularly unique in both both premise and execution. I’m not going to spoil it here, but I will when I do an official post about it for discussion.
What I’m Watching
Title: Golden Axe Warrior
Series Title: Golden Axe
Let’s Player: Hungry Goriya
Date Started: Unknown
I just watched the latest episode tonight. HG is torturing us with cutting off right before the eight labyrinth :p
Title: Golden Sun
Series Title: Golden Sun
Let’s Player: Olizandri
Date Started: 12/4/18
What excites me about this game/series is Oliz has two more Let’s Plays of it on his channel and they’re nice and hefty. I don’t quite understand the battle mechanics, but that’s because I’m not playing it myself. It seems almost similar to Final Fantasy VIII’s Junction System insofar as the characters get extra power by djinni, little creature they find around. I guess it’s sort of a cross between FFVIII and Pokemon in that respect. The story is interesting and there are a lot of facets to it.
It’s Christmas and I’m exhausted. It’s been a busy and social couple of days, and TSN needs to recharge. I took a nap after we got home from my sister-in-law’s before eating some lasagna for dinner. It’s one of those you get a coupon for from the store instead of a turkey, since we already have a bird in the freezer. As usual, I was utterly spoiled for Christmas with many offerings to my glory. I got a new Kindle Fire, which is pretty much a tablet, but I’m waiting until I get the cover I ordered before I officially take it out. I also received a crap ton of books, which I’ll talk about in my next SOTR post.
Did you receive your gaming Christmas wishes? I can’t wait to figure out what I’m going to pick up with that Switch gift card!
