This may be the most uneventful post in game challenge history, as I have so little to report on my end of month wrap up.
Let’s see, this past week I played almost nothing. I logged in to Borderlands: The Handsome Collection a few times to exchange gear with my brother, and I played a handful of matches here and there in Overwatch. And, sure, I played Pokemon Go here and there (I’m only level 11), but I didn’t play anything at length until this weekend.
For years my partner and I have been talking about being able to play current gen games together, and, through a twist of fate, we can now do so. Sure, the only games we can play together are Destiny and Overwatch, but as his schedule is so bonkers, these are more than enough.
We both love Destiny and have put many hundreds of hours into it. So, this weekend when he booted it up for the “first” time on his own profile, he looked at me and said, “I can’t believe I’m starting Destiny all over again.”
I felt a little bad for him. He had had a Titan on my profile and had obtained some of the best gear and weapons in the game. To see him willing to start all over so we could actually play together was humbling.
Add to this that one of my favorite co-op partners (Degan!) knew what we were going to do and he actually wiped out one of his guardians to start the game over with us.
How many people would do that?! It was entirely kind.
The three of us are a solid fireteam. It’s been such a good time.
With my partner’s schedule being so bonkers, we likely won’t be able to dive back in to Destiny until the weekend, but I’m already looking forward to getting back into space.
All this lingering Pokemon Go excitement has me in the mindset to finally start in on Alpha Sapphire, and I got as far as popping it in to my 3DS. We will see if I actually end up diving in this week or not. I’m still finding it more than a little difficult to focus or concentrate on much of anything.
As I mentioned before, I am extending my July game challenge through August, and I’m hoping I can make better progress throughout the next four weeks. There are several games releasing next month that I’m excited for (e.g.: Deus Ex, No Man’s Sky) and I’m hoping I can find a balance to all this.
I also hope to regain my focus in general. I’ve been pretty scattered for over a week now.
What have you been playing? What games are you looking forward to in August? Do you have any on pre-order?
Thanks for bearing with me this month, friends. Here’s hoping next month is better. Cheers.
