Welcome to another Monthly Summary here at gamergal.exe! This month has not turned out as expected… I was planning a bunch of anime posts including a new tournament style series, but unfortunately, they still need a bit of work before I can share them. Since I’m back working my job full time now, I seem to be struggling with my free time management as my hobbies switched focus during lockdown and now I just don’t have time to do everything. I apologise for the delay, but they’ll be posted real soon! As for my gaming month… let’s take a look:Continue reading “Monthly Summary: May 2021”
Welcome to yet another Monthly Summary here at gamergal.exe! I’ve been much more productive this month, seeing a handful of completions over different genres and I’ve invested much more time into larger games that are still ongoing. I’ve still been watching plenty of anime which will soon come in handy for my yearly month of AniMay, a whole month dedicated specifically towards anime, which will of course be taking place throughout May! Although I don’t look to have been very active recently, I’ve been working on a fair few posts in preparation for this annual event that I can’t wait to share with you all.
Before I get too ahead of myself, let’s take a look back at my progress during April:Continue reading “Monthly Summary: April 2021”
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.
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.
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.
I swear these months keep passing by faster. I’ve had a fairly interesting month in terms of gaming related stuff. I’ve been challenging myself by playing different types of games and I’m honestly loving it! I’ve also managed to play more with my boyfriend than I normally do during an average month which I think has helped with the positive gaming experience.
