It’s hard to believe we are less than a week away from the last month of the year. Honestly, I think I’m in denial about it.
That being said, it’s time to cut to the chase and try to make up for lost time.
This past week, I had high hopes for playing many co-op games and for finishing up Dishonored 2.
Guess what I didn’t do?
Either of those things.
What I did do was play a veritable crap ton of Pokemon Sun. I think I’m fairly close to the end, but that doesn’t mean I have been streamlining the story; quite the contrary. Saturday night I spent literally hours trying to find, and catch, an Eevee as well as as a Jigglypuff. Well, after catching an Eevee hours before and still not finding a Jigglypuff, I decided to look up if there was a particular time of day they would appear.
It turns out there is: daytime.
When it is daytime in real life, it is daytime in the game. I was doing all this searching at night.
Cue up the cricket sounds.
I was so frustrated because it was already after 5am and I was still Jigglypuff-less. Yesterday afternoon I was fortunate and remedied that particular situation so, eventual, hooray for me.
I have no doubt I will finish up Pokemon Sun in the next couple of days, but I now have laser focus for what to do with the rest of December: try to complete as many games as I can that were released this year.
First up will be The Last Guardian, which releases on the 6th. I will absolutely be playing it the moment I can get my hands on it. I sincerely hope I can finish Dishonored 2 well before then. After that, I’d like to get as many of the following 2016 releases as possible:
Layers of Fear
Far Cry: Primal
Trials of the Blood Dragon
Hyper Light Drifter
PSYCHO-PASS: Mandatory Happiness
Yomawari: Night Alone / htol#NiQ: The Firefly Diary
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
And so many more.
I know I won’t be able to finish all those games before 12.31, so the idea of listing more of them is a moot point.
No matter how I look at all this, I am looking at a packed four weeks, one of which I won’t even be near my consoles.
This will be interesting.
Also, today is my dumb birthday and, in effort to avoid the misery it typically brings me, I will be playing games as early and as often as I can to try to forget that today is today and that zero fuss has been made.
So…yes. I hope I can get a little further in Dishonored 2 and work towards wrapping that up. I’d still like to get to some of the shorter fare before The Last Guardian releases next week. I have my eye on that prize.
Hopefully I have solid progress to report next week.
With that, I excuse myself to go mope in a corner somewhere. Cheers, friends.
