“2020 is going to be the best year ever”, I say as I make a note of all the major plans I have for this year – the year I decide to step out of my comfort zone and do the things I’ve wanted to do for a while. Well, here we are 2 months later and this past week has been officially been the worst of my life.
Welcome to my final post of 2019, and the final post of the decade! This is the last Monthly Summary of the year and as you’ll probably see from this post, I’ve been trying to finish a lot of games off to prepare for my fresh 2020 gaming quest! I’ve been looking forward to 2020 for such a long time now and I’m honestly excited to begin the year ahead. So let’s take a final look back at the events of December…
It’s the last day of November which means it’s time for another monthly Summary. It’s scary to think that there’s only one month left of 2019… I still have so many things on my list of things to do and far too many games left to play with only a few weeks remaining. December is going to be a just month!
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.
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.
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!
Yesterday, Rooster Teeth announced their hit web series, RWBY, would be crossing over with the Free-to-play MOBA, Smite. The announcement Tweet didn’t initially give much away, but a few more details have come to light overnight.
We’re halfway through Season 6 already. As expected, this is a pretty big patch for balance changes, but there’s also plenty of skins and another new Battle Pass on the way! Patch 6.7 will be released on Tuesday 23rd July with the Battle for Olympus content being released on 30th July and 13th August.
*EDIT: The Mid-Season update has been delayed and will be released on Wednesday 24th July, starting from 7am ET.
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:
