Over the past week, between my injured left thumb and my need to sleep significantly more, I didn’t play nearly as much as I’d have liked. The end of the year is fast approaching, and, at this point, I have no idea how I will craft a top ten list; I’ve missed far too much this year due to my ridiculous health situation.
I’m committed to really digging in and making progress. So much so, that I’m crafting a schedule to make those strides.
We’ll see how that goes.
I was farting around on the PlayStation Store over the weekend, and I found a game called Frisky Business. I thought the title was so silly, I had to watch the trailer. Of course part of it had to take place in an amusement park (my weakness!), and the rest of it looks pretty over the top, so I bought it in, and hopefully I can play a little of that here and there this week. Something about it reminds me of Hatoful Boyfriend, but that doesn’t make sense because so far, I’ve seen no evidence of birds. Perhaps it’s the absurdity level.
One thing I did spend time with was Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Holy moly; I’ve been sucked right back in. I love seeing my townsanimals, I love puttering around my town, and I’m enjoying the new additions that Welcome Amiibo brings (the campground, the new storage addition, daily tasks for MEOW coupons, and the ease of moving things around interior spaces). I forgot just how soothing Animal Crossing can be. I don’t even feel bad for playing it when I know I should be catching up on all the amazing 2017 releases.
Speaking of those 2017 releases, the one that looms largest is Persona 5, as I know it will be the longest (hour-wise) to complete. I kind of want to just start with that and knock it out if I can. Once that’s out of the way, I think everything else is short by comparison. Also, with so many people back into Horizon: Zero Dawn due to the DLC that released last week, I find myself wanting to play that, too. Never mind wanting to finish Wolfenstein: The New Order, so I can roll into The New Colossus. I’m also super excited to play Assassin’s Creed: Origins; the locations alone are calling out to me. And then I think of all the downloadable titles I’d like to get to, and my mind starts spinning trying to figure out what game to play next.
I know, I know, the basest of first world problems. I’d just love to have a somewhat informed opinion when it comes to making a top ten list for 2017. No matter how it shakes out, it’s going to be rough.
So, today, my focus (if my thumb will allow me to play) will be Wolfenstein. If I can’t seem to play it, I will try one of the downloadable titles that doesn’t require such rigorous movement with the left thumbstick.
What are you hoping to play this week?
