The month of August has been a little abnormal this time around. Although I feel like I’ve completed a fair few games, they have all been of the same genre – a genre I’m very fond of. With so many games on the horizon, I’m now left with a gaming schedule that pretty much consists entirely of new releases up until the end of the year which is totally new for me. Even though there’s not a great deal of stuff to share this month, here’s what I’ve been up to:
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.
Update 6.8 is here with a whole new bunch of changes and new content. As the previous patch was the mid-season update, we can expect this patch to be a lot smaller with a few balance changes to the new items too. This update also includes the remaining content for the Battle for Olympus event including the long awaited T5 skin for Kukulkan, regular balance changes and a brand new God!
Can you even believe half of 2019 has gone already?! There’s so many games I want to play but so little time! The Steam Summer Sale is also live right now up until the 9th of July, so I’m sure I’ll be making some more purchases within the next week to add to the ever-growing backlog. As per usual, here’s what I’ve been up to this month:
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve never understood all the hype for E3. This year has been no different. Since my blog is all about gaming, I do feel like I need to comment somewhat on which announcements I’m looking forward to, but this post will certainly be different to a lot of other coverage out there. Expect a few unpopular opinions in this one folks.
Another patch is here, just in time for E3! Olorun, the next God available in Smite, was announced at E3 and will be coming to the game on 25th June! Not only that, there will be an excellent selection of skins coming over the course of the next month too – some of the best we’ve seen in a while! The regular God balance and item changes are included too as well as the announcements of the winners for two community skin contests! After the disappointment from last patch, I honestly can’t wait for this one!
With another month almost over, it’s time once again to review my monthly gaming progress for May. I’m tweaking the format for my Monthly Summary posts slightly from now on as I felt my categories were becoming a little repetitive. It hasn’t changed a great deal from before, but I’m hoping this will work out better in the long run.
