October’s Monthly Summary is a day late this time due to the HORRORWE’EN post I co-wrote with WesleyWhale being posted yesterday. October was fairly busy for gaming despite not having a huge amount of free time and I managed to finish up the main games I started in September. October has mainly revolved around Hallowe’en though which I’m sure you’ll notice. Let’s take a look!
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).
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.
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.
Generally I’m pretty good at being able to tell whether I’ll enjoy a game or not before I play it. Obviously there are a few I have doubts with, but typically if I don’t get into a game within the first few hours, I’ll give it a miss in the future.
The majority of games are much more fun when played with friends. There are quite a few different games that I play with friends depending on who I’m playing with and the mood we’re in, so for this category I’m going to pick a few games that I play with friends that I wouldn’t choose to play by myself.
When you are really enjoying a game, it can be so hard to put it down sometimes. This is normally the case for me until I get near the end, and then I slow down because I never want it to end! There’s probably only a handful of games that I’ve finished extremely quickly, but there’s one in particular that springs to mind.
