If I had little to report last week, I have even less for this one. My seemingly endless yuck has been present and leaving me feeling so crappy that I’ve yet to play anything on console for two weeks now.
I’ve been resting and laying down quite often, so, occasionally, I will log in to Pokemon Sun to visit Poke Pelago and do simple things, but that’s where the bulk of my gaming has happened. I’ve also occasionally logged in to Pokemon Go, but that’s for only moments here and there.
My big “accomplishment” this week was to finally catch a Dhelmise:
And there’s the little booger. I’m not even joking when I say it took me a collective several hours to get one to finally spawn in the one spot in the game that it shows up. I don’t know why I’m so awfully fond of the strange object Pokemon, but I am, and I’m so pleased to finally have this one. Next on my list is to breed the heck out of it in hopes of getting a good roll on perks.
But really, that’s all I did.
Oh, sure, I logged in to Overwatch to buy (and open) some holiday loot boxes, but I didn’t even play a single match. I haven’t played anything really and I am feeling increasingly weird about it.
I leave for holiday this week, so I’m currently in the getting everything ready crunch, and games seem like the last thing I will be able to get to. I will be taking both my 3DS as well as my Vita, so hopefully I get some good game time in while away. I have two newer releases I’d like to play on my Vita (Yomawari: Night Alone, and Zero Time Dilemma), so I won’t be lacking for games during my travels.
I’m also hoping to convince a family member to download the Jackbox Party Pack 3 on their console in hopes of getting everyone in on the fun during Christmas eve festivities.
So, while I haven’t been gaming, I can see a bit more gaming on the horizon for me. That pleases me greatly.
In the meantime, I will be playing the terribly fun game of getting everything cleaned up and packed.
The one thing I really wanted for Christmas looks like it won’t be happening, and while I’m disappointed, I still hold out hope. The NES Classic Edition is the first thing I’ve really wanted for Christmas in years. It doesn’t hurt that I got my original NES back on Christmas day of 1989, so this time of year always reminds me of that. From the moment the Classic was announced, I had Google alerts for it, and was right there hours before Amazon’s initial batch went up for sale. That was a fiasco, and I was far from alone in my frustrations with how the site handled the situation. I’ve not been lucky finding one at any retail location I’ve been to, but I still hold out hope that I will have one of my very own sooner than later.
I suppose time will tell.
What are you playing this week? What are your holiday gaming plans?
