Kawika's Games Journal of 2015
Its late but I will be brief. After banging my head against a wall and getting no wear in Bloodborne, I finally picked up and finished The Witcher 2. I was making good headway till Destiny came out last fall and I thought I had put it down forever. The game was very satisfying and I think I put way more thought into how to build Geralt than I needed to. I choose Iroveth's path. I hope when I pick up The Witcher 3 I remember what choices I made in the past.
Totally forgot about this list. Tried to add a bunch of stuff that I have been doing for the past 3 months.
Quick recap. I bought a CRT for retro gaming. Hooked up my old NES and PS2 to it. Not long after I repurchased a Wii and got a bunch of Virtual Console games. Now I am starting up a Wii collection. I think the big issue with the console was that it didn't look very good on HDTV but having a good SD CRT makes all the difference in the world. I am loving the Scan lines and Sprites.
I also bought a New 3DS XL and have been collecting more games than playing them. Having a large back log on a hand held has never been a problem for me because I always seem to find time to enjoy them after a while. I still play my GBA SP to this day.
I have too many gaming choices of late. Its a good problem to have. I am going to have to make some hard cuts but I don't think I can play Bloodborne, The Witcher 3 and Batman this summer. I might as well just skip batman and wait for the game of the year version.
I didn't intend on 2015 as the year of playing retro titles and remakes but I am really enjoying this. Who cares about new games?... Well, I do a little.
Halo CE in the Master Chief Collection was my first finished game of 2015. I find it odd that this was the game that got me into first person shooters and changed me as a gamer from that point on. I remember back then I played inverted like I was flying an airplane. I am not sure how much gaming one can do with a new baby here but I hope I can sneak 20 minutes here and there and finally finish something once in a while.
I had to sell Dragon Age Inquisition to my bro. This is not the time to take on hundred hour rpgs that require you to be in front of a tv for that duration. I wish more western style rpgs would make it to mobile platforms.
Another Year has started and I totally flopped on my level tracking last year. I plan on keeping up with my game journal this year. Although, I suspect this year will have a lot less games than previous years I will try to keep up with this the best I can.
