Monthly Summary: January 2020

January has been a strange month. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but it seems to have dragged despite my fresh optimism for the year ahead. I’ve had a pretty productive month aside from gaming too, mainly focusing on planning our trip to Japan in March and also trying my hand at drawing (for the first time since I was doing my GCSEs). I’ve also been playing my guitar every night for the past week and studying Japanese most nights throughout the month too. I’m enjoying this routine and plan to keep it up!

Completions List [2019]

During 2019, I managed to complete 35 games! My yearly target was 40 (although I said I’d be happy with 30) so I’m very pleased with my progress. I was a little worried at first due to only playing 12 games by the end of June, but I managed to pull it back after some changes to my working life which allowed more free time. Obviously, there are a lot of other games I played last year that I didn’t finish e.g. Smite (never-ending) so much more of my time was put into games than credited on this list. I don’t plan to finish as many during 2020, but I suppose we’ll just have to see what happens.

The list below has been taken from the Twitter thread I’d been composing during the course of 2019. After completing each game, I wrote a very short summary on the key points and/or main features also including the platform, hours spent and the date I finished each game. I’ve also rated each game out of 5 and left a description of my rating system below.

Monthly Summary: September 2019

September has been a mixed month overall. In some ways, I feel like this month for gaming has probably been the best so far this year, I feel like I’ve played loads! On the other hand, some awful stuff has happened in my personal life which has brought the month’s overall positivity down.

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.

Smite: 6.8 Patch Notes – Queen of the Underworld

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!
