11 Games To Play During September [11:11]

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for September to come around! I’ve been working an awful lot recently and I’ve not had a proper break since January so I’m definitely ready for some time off. I’ll be spending 10 whole days with my boyfriend, so we’re planning on working our way through a load of games – mostly local co-op games – that have been sat in out collective backlog for quite some time (and also a few new releases).

Upcoming 2019 Games [11:11] – The Subseries

The next few months are looking phenomenal for new releases and there are so many new games I have on my wishlist right now. I don’t think there’s ever been a year I’ve had my eye on so many new releases before, but obviously I won’t have time to play them all at once.

100% Game Completions [11:11]

Until last summer, I was never really bothered about Trophy Hunting. I always thought it was a waste of time, but I felt a huge sense of achievement after finishing a few games last year by gaining all the achievements. My views have recently changed and I now feel like getting all the achievements in a game means I’ve done everything the developers wanted the player to experience as well as being able to get more enjoyment out of a game once the story is over. This year, I seem to have prioritised 100% completion for those games I’ve really enjoyed rather than finishing a single playthrough and leaving it alone.

Cleverly Used Soundtracks [11:11]

There are plenty of truly wonderful gaming soundtracks out there which can contribute immensely to our personal gaming experiences. I see so many posts on Twitter about great OSTs whether it be appreciation posts, discussions or favourites lists; this topic is certainly a common one – with good reason. However, whenever I see talk of soundtracks, it always seems to be about how well they are written or how suited they are to the game. This is [11:11] after all, so I thought I’d address the topic with a slightly different outlook. As I have a musical background myself, the way music is used in gaming is a topic I’m particularly fond of, so I racked my brains to think of 11 games that have a unique type of soundtrack and / or use of music – the kind that incorporates into the game itself, or those that really go the extra mile to fit into the game’s requirements.

Memorable Games From My Childhood [11:11]

Welcome back to another [11:11] post! So far I’ve talked about Games I Loved But Never Finished and JRPGs I Wish I Had Time To Play, so this time I thought I’d revisit the past and choose a selection of games I used to love when I was growing up.

#AniMay [11:11] – The Subseries

Welcome to the first bonus episode of [11:11] especially for #AniMay! After seeing a few posts on Twitter, I decided I really wanted to make my own anime list and thought fitting it into [11:11] would be a cool idea. However, I ideally wanted this series to revolve around gaming so I’ve decided to add in an extra post as part of a subseries (which may receive additional chapters later in the year).

Although I like to keep my blog focus specifically on gaming, I do like to talk about other interests I have such as anime and music every now and then. Since I enjoyed doing the 30 Day Anime Challenge last year, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to revisit the topic.

11 JRPGs I Wish I Had Time To Play [11:11]

Being relatively new to the world of JRPGs, I haven’t had the opportunity to sink my thumbs into many during my time. I would love to experience (and actually finish) many JRPGs, but that got me thinking — “Where on Earth am I going to find the time to play any of these games?”
