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 Bought

  • Nier Automata – $23.99 @ Best Buy – I returned my extra copy of Jurassic World: Evolution for store credit, and I still have around $30 left to play around with.  Not sure what else I’m going to buy.  I might grab a Switch GC or something since BB only sells games for the latest systems (PS4, Xbone, and Switch).  Give me your best suggestions on what I should spend my credit on!

Play Duration: 154

While I didn’t fully “finish” the game aka I didn’t beat the “true” final boss, I still completely everyone’s chapters, and I’m satisfied with that.  I watched a tutorial on that last big battle and I decided “nah.”  It was way too involved, and I’d already left my Switch on overnight because there’s a boss rush right before it and no save.  The boss rush isn’t hard if you’re in the high 60’s/low 70’s for level like I was, but still.  I’m more than happy with what I got out of the game.  I’m hoping they’ll add more content, because there’s still plenty of map that needs to be filled out.
