2 months since I last updated here. Last time I updated I had beaten Spiderman on the PS4 and the outer Worlds. I then started Madden 18 although I haven’t finished that one yet.
I took a rare vacation over the holidays so wanted to get into a game. At first I went with Rage 2 however honestly I wasn’t super into it. I just was not into the story at all. I kept getting all these quests and was just like “Yeah I don’t care about any of these”. Such a soulless game.
So I stopped rather than waste my holidays hating myself. I went with XCom 2. Man I love turn based strategy games. Read more…
Oops I forgot to update in awhile. However in the past two months I’ve went through and beaten two games. Which doesn’t sound like a lot I guess but I mean both games probably combined for about 60-70 hours so I’ll take.
Not an actual update really but just wanted to write something while it was fresh in my head – I’ve learned over the past couple of days that one thing I need when it comes to gaming was focus.
Over the weekend I had the following gaming “plans”:
- Play Spiderman on PS4
- Slowly grind away at Madden 18s “win a game with every team” achievement
- Get an achievement per day in Sniper Elite 4
- Do this weeks “XBox Game to Wrap Up” which was Limbo
- 30 minutes per day on Lego Marvel
However I soon realized that isn’t something I want to do. Read more…
Well my new schedule in terms of work – which is set up to allow me to do more non-work things such as play Xbox – is already paying off as I had a very successful week in terms of playing XBox.
I finished up Metro 2033 Redux last time out. My new goal was every Friday pick an “XBox Game to Wrap Up” and play that until I had every achievement I wanted in it. i ended up going with Metro and got all the needed achievements over the course of a couple of days.
What’s cool about that is I was quite busy the last few days with personal stuff but I was still able to do that AND start then finish a new game. Read more…
I didn’t forget about updating here or anything – I just haven’t updated as I haven’t been playing much XBox.
as an example the only game I have been playing is Metro 2033 Redux. I started that on June 13th. It’s September 9th and I literally just finished the game 5 minutes ago.
Three freaking months for one game that How Long To Beat suggests you can beat in 9-22 hours. According to Trueachievements I only played for 10 hours too. So 10 hours in 3 months. Yikes.
I’ve got a better work schedule set out now that will hopefully encourage me to play more video games now. Here’s how my spreadsheet currently stands: Read more…
