March 2020 Gaming Report

March. Oh March. I feel like this March will go down as the Marchess March of Marches. You’ve heard it all from everywhere, so I won’t repeat it all. Stay safe and hygenic.

The month started out strong, crumbled a bit, and then went upwards toward the end. I fell that my attitude towards gaming was improving at the beginning when I finally finished one of my favorite games. After that, I was lost on what to tackle next; and then things got chaotic in the world. You would think being forced to stay home would mean that I can play all the game I want, but nope. I have been stressed with the whole lifestyle change that my gaming time has felt reduced. The release of a certain game reinvigorated me, and now I’m slowly starting to de-stress.

Games Finished

I managed to finish something this month! I was able to finish Final Fantasy VI: Advance for #MaybeinMarch. I enjoyed my time with the game, and I was sad to finally see the credits roll. If you would like to read about my time throughout the game, I made two post about the setup and my overall thoughts on the game. I plan on going back and completing the Dragon’s Den.

Currently Playing

During my lump, I have attempted to play different games. I managed to find my way to the Four Kings boss in Dark Souls and slowly making my attempts to defeat them. I popped back into Nier: Automata briefly only for my computer to crap out on me. That’s what I get for keeping it on for work. Other than that, there are two games that I have been playing recently during my uplift.

The first one (surprise surprise) is Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Just like how Pokemon Sword helped me during my depression, Animal Crossing is doing a good job keeping me sane during these times. My brothers and I have been visiting each other’s islands; which has been a great way to stay in touch while isolated. I go back and forth on how I feel about this game. Eventually I will write a post on my feelings about this game, but right now I feel that the space has been heavily saturated with Animal Crossing.

The second game I’ve been replaying is Dynasty Warriors Gundam: Reborn. This is the fourth and last installment in the Dynasty Warriors Gundam games. I recently went back to it so that I could obtain all of the trophies in the game. This won’t be too hard since there are no annoying online achievements in this game (what prevents me from 100% the third game). I will say that I enjoyed the third game more than this one, but it is still mindless fun.

New Additions

Besides Animal Crossing, I have been rocking at not buying new games that I don’t have time to play. I picked up this party game called Screencheat, a competitive “shooter” where you have to look at each other’s screens in order to find them. I played it with my wife and brother and we had a good time playing it. I also re-bought Final Fantasy VII for the PS4 in an attempt to play through the game before the remastered came out. I played through it once, but never defeated Sephiroth at the end (if you know my luck with games you can guess why).

Plans For Next Month

My plans drastically changed from what I planned last month. I was suppose to go on a trip and that did not happen. I was also suppose to beat three games, and that did not happen. One would assume that with being stuck at home I would have all the time now to finish up some games. I am still working from home however, and I have been really good about not gaming during those hours. This may not always be the case once my duties start to dry up and my mentality goes out the window.

I still want to stream, but recently I’ve been getting this feeling of Impostor Syndrome. I’ve seen a lot of people starting to stream, and for some reason my brain makes me feel like I’m just jumping on the bandwagon like everyone else. I know it sounds dumb and I should do what I want, but the feeling is there nevertheless. Please fill free to tell me that I’m being ridiculous and that I should do it. Motivation from other people may help me break the mold.

February 2020 Gaming Report

For how productive I was last month, this month it will all downhill (kind of). This does not mean that I was being unproductive and not getting anything done. In fact, I think I put in a lot of effort to have games done next month! With that, I only have a few things to report on for this month.

Games Finished

Nothing. Zero. Not a damn thing.

This month saw me jumping from title to title. I am on track of finishing the game I want for March, but out of nowhere, I started to get the urge to tackle Dark Souls again. I finally beat the horrific duo known as Ornstein & Smough and I can finally continue the game. I had been at the fight for over a month and it was a matter of time before I finally got their attack pattern memorized. Now with the Lordvessel and the ability to warp now, nothing can stop me until the next nightmare comes along! Whenever I needed a break from the first game, I would switch over to the second game. For some reason I find the second game easier since movement is a bit faster to my liking. Every time I come across something dreading, I normally find it less intimidating and comical at some points. I will save my ramblings for these games when I finally finish them one day.

Other than that, I got the urge to play through Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Master Rank is definitely the challenge I was missing in the base game, and I’m glad the monsters are finally putting up a challenge. Here’s to hoping that the next expansion brings in G Rank and continues the challenging climb.

I also went back to Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Getting through this game is a sluggish one, and I finally figured out why. This entire time, I have been playing on Hard mode for my first playthrough. Knowing this, I think I ruined the game for myself since each battle was a task to make every move perfect. After lowing the difficulty to Normal, the game became more enjoyable since I was able to now relax and enjoy the game. I still plan on beating the game on the hardest difficulty, but now I know that sometimes taking it easy is its own reward.

New Additions

Be proud of me everyone. I only bought ONE new game this month! I was challenging myself to not buy any games this month, but I could not pass this offer.

My local Game Stop was selling new copies of The World Ends With You: Final Remix for only $20 USD. How could I not pass that up! I own the original DS version, but did not get far into it. With the possibility of playing this game in Co-op, I’m hoping Kat will be interested in playing this with me.

Plans For Next Month

My goal for next month is to finish at least three games. Everything that I have been doing this month has lead up to this. It will be a challenge since I still have school work that needs to be done, plus I am taking a big trip the first week in April. I have a break from work this week, so my days off will give me plenty of time to get things done. I also plan on doing another test stream (starting today) to give streaming another try. I have always told myself that I wanted to stream, and now all the tools are in my possession. The only thing that I need to do now is to actually do it….

My goal is to get comfortable streaming and do it semi-regularly by the end of the year. Will that happen? Time will tell.
