In another attempt to get me to finally start finishing the ever growing library of games I have lying around I will be introducing my “game of the week”. This game is the game I will be playing next to the monthly goals I’ve set for myself for a week. Seeing as I feel I haven’t gotten much of out of my WiiU yet I’ve chosen to pick up a game from there first, and what franchise is better to start with than Super Mario? Not only do I have the original New Super Mario Bros. U, the Nintendo Select version also came with the New Super Luigi U DLC. For now I’m not going to focus on 100% completion (mostly meaning I won’t be chasing all the big golden coins in every level) but just play through the initial game. I can always come back and 100% complete it right? For now I just want to see how far I can manage to get in a week. Seeing as I will be heading to Lissabon on Saturday it’s technically not a full week but whatever.
In the next “Game of the Week” I will discuss how far I’ve gotten in this game and what my thoughts are about playing it, a mini review if you wish, before announcing another game I will be playing for a week. It could be that some games will be recurring because I can’t finish them in a week or, if I have, I want to aim for 100% completion. I hope you guys will enjoy this new “series” by me. For now I’m off, playing with Mario!
I celebrated my 27th birthday yesterday. Even writing this up it makes me feel old. Looking back to my teens and growing up and where I am now, I would not have imagined to still live at home at this age. I used to be full of wild plans, essentially wanting to move out at 18 and get my own place and my own life.
Alas depression, PTSD and a father with cancer cancelled all of this so here I am, still at home and struggling to find my way. It’s okay though, I’ve been through a lot worse and right now my life is mostly stable. I have a job that earns me a decent income, I have a nice group of friends around me that love me and support me and I’ve been working on getting healthier and losing weight, so there’s that. The only thing I really miss is someone to share it all with… But I hope that day will come soon aswell.
Seeing as I now have a nice income I treated myself this year. I bought a Wii U, which I’ve been wanting to have for a while due to Nintendo exclusive games. It came with Xenoblade chronicles X and man do I have to say that that is a very pretty looking game for the Wii U as console. Ofcourse it still pales in comparison to what my PS4 can produce graphics wise, but it’s really nice to look at anyway. The story so far seems decent aswell and it’s a JRPG, a genre which I actually like very much. I’ve read some reviews aswell which showcase it to be a huge open world game where you can easily sink hours and hours into exploring alone… Which actually makes me quite excited to play.
I also picked up a few other games. I couldn’t really resist Yoshi’s Woolly World (I love cutesy games like this) and Epic Mickey was on sale for only €9,99. Being the huge Disney fan I am I HAD to pick it up so there’s that.
I’ve also been trying to get into the Zelda series, having Majora’s Mask on my 3DS. Twilight Princess is supposed to be a very good game and graphically it looks nice aswell so I went ahead and picked that up aswell.
All in all I have quite a bit to play right now. My activities in MMO’s have been going down unfortunately. I only really actively play FFXIV because my WoW guild is on hiatus untill Legion. I have the Division going on my PS4 and am also thinking of popping back into Destiny to take a look around with a big update coming in April… There’s enough plans atleast… And that’s not even counting having to fit in Daredevil season 2 somewhere aswell.
