It’s hard to believe we are knocking on September’s door, but here we are already, the last day in August.
My August game challenge didn’t quite go as planned, but that’s okay. I completed Until Dawn a couple of days after its release and loved it. I’m already looking forward to playing it again once I make progress on a couple more gaming fronts.
Speaking of which…
Tearaway: Unfolded releases in just over a week and I can’t wait. Tearaway: Unfolded is a retooled version of Tearaway for the PS Vita, a game that I couldn’t love much more than I do. It was deeply beautiful, whimsical, and oddly touching, and I can’t wait to see it on a far larger screen (where I can take screenshots!). I also can’t wait for exponentially more people out there to experience it now that it will be available for the PS4. It doesn’t hurt that it will be retailing for the bargain price of $39.99, either.
Now if I could just convince Media Molecule to release an art book for the game…
And with Tearaway: Unfolded begins my September game challenge: I want to complete the game before the release of…
Destiny’s The Taken King expansion which releases on the 15th. I’ve gone from being unsure I should even get it, to genuinely looking forward to it. I’ve begun playing a bit again, and I have to say, I really do enjoy the game. I’m trying to get my brother into it, but we’ll see how that endeavor goes. It sounds like the changes coming with the expansion will make it far more user-friendly for newcomers.
A friend who I hadn’t played with in quite some time was generous with his time and offered to help me progress in the Prison of Elders, as that is the last thing I hadn’t completed from year one. I still need to beat Skolas, and we’ll see if that happens, but either way, I’m grateful to be playing again in general, and with certain people specifically.
(Thank you Trench!)
I would like to experience the new content the game has to offer with the expansion, and then, finally, I would like to complete my playthrough of…
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I started playing the game on release day, and I loved it. I had stopped only because of some since-patched glitches, and now I have no excuse. I very much want to complete the game before the end of the month and before the fall gaming season really gets into the thick of it. October isn’t so bad, but November is going to be a beast of a month for gaming.
Another goal for the month: installing a larger hard drive in a PS4 successfully. It almost sounds too easy, and I don’t want to screw up a PS4 because of my hard drive ambitions. I will follow online instructions precisely and hope for the best.
So there you have it folks, my September game challenge: to complete Tearaway: Unfolded, The Taken King, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It’s going to be a hell of a month.
Is anyone else out there doing a monthly gaming challenge? If so, what will you be playing?
