Where has August gone? It feels like we just finished July, and now August has ended as well. I am not going to complain since that means we are one step closer to Fall. One tree in my yard is already starting to change its colors and shed a few leaves. Soon it will be so long to shorts and hello comfy jacket season!

But this is a gaming blog and not a nature one (though I could talk about nature at some point). I spent the first half of the month trying to finish one game in anticipation for the next. The grind was rough, and I am proud to say that I didn’t manage to finish much this month. With the return to work and school, I have to completely redo my schedule just as I was getting used to my current one. If I need the motivation now, my coursework and work tasks will have me begging to pick up a controller when I can. 

Finished This Month

The only game that I can closely say that I finished was NieR: Automata. I say closely finish, because I only got the the first ending, which classifies in my books as a finish. I do know that I need to play the other stories to get the true ending, and I have plans to do so. Just don’t bully me for counting this as a win for me!

Added This Month

A few new titles were added this month. I decided to try this new game everyone was talking about called Fall Guys. It was free via PS Plus, so I figured I had nothing to lose. Can’t say that I am a big fan of this one. I see the charm of it by trying to out best everyone that you are competing against. To me though, it feels very stressful, and I already have enough of that as is. People have been saying that the appeal of the game is playing with friends, but I think I am good on that front. Not my cup of tea, but I’m glad others seem to be enjoying it.

For my random purchase of the month, that goes to Onimusha: Warlords on the PS4. I’ve seen the game before, but never bothered to try it. I saw it on sale for $15 USD and decided to bit the bullet. I had a feeling if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to find it later like so many other games on my wishlist.

Are people still buying 3DS games? Because I sure am! I have been meaning to pick up WarioWare Gold for a while, but I was always looking for a good deal on it. I thought I did last week when I found a copy in Target for $20 USD. That sounded too good to be true…and it was. When the cashier rang it up, it came to $40 USD instead. I could have insisted that I didn’t want to purchase it or that the price lied to me, but if you know me I’m not a confrontational guy and just accepted it.

This comes to the last game I got this year, and I thought this was going to be my game of the year. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered came out on the 27th (for some reason I thought it was the 28th) to a heated reception. I won’t go far into details as I already did in a separate blog post. Just know that it came out and had the opposite effect Pokemon Sword did for me last year.

Plans For Next Month

Survive. Joking aside, my schedule is all over the place and I can’t seem to find a moment to relax. When I do, it feels like a false sense of relaxation and my brain starts to stress me out. There are a few games that I want to attempt to finish this month like Trails of Cold Steel III since the next game in the series is coming out in October. Speaking of October, the blog will celebrate its one year anniversary. I didn’t imagine that I would be keeping up with the blog this long, but I’m glad I did and I have met some amazing people along the way. I am still working on some updates to reveal during the time, so please look forward to those things.
