Thankfully, for me anyway, the releases have stopped and now its time to work through some back log games. 2018 has been an incredible year for games and I’ve played a majority of the major releases, that I can think of.
We are about a month away from the chaos of fall gaming. The three month period of September, October, and November is the most contentious time in gaming. Most major new games come out in that period, usually yearly releases with some big names. I get it. Publishers need to get everything out before Black Friday and Christmas to increase sales.
At the end of 2017 I talked about a few of the games I was looking forward to in the coming year. But, I didn’t really mention a couple games that I’m looking forward too for whatever reason. Let’s talk about Spider-Man and Dragon Quest XI.
Not A Black Ops III Review
Don’t play Black Ops III if you haven’t. That’s the TL,DR for this post.
If my Modern Warfare 2 playtime, 1344 hours, is any indication, I used to consider myself an “expert” in the series. Either I got really bad at FPS on consoles…or Call of Duty games just got worse.
After playing and finishing Black Ops III, I have finally realized that Call of Duty is not what it once was. I’ve said many times that I’m finished with the series, “Never to return.” Maybe this time is different.
Note: I will only be posting on Monday for the next couple weeks with the hope of being back on track mid-March. I have other priorities that require more of my time than usual.
Anyway, for now, here’s my review of Titanfall 2’s campaign.
No spoilers and TL,DR at the bottom.
I knew very little about this game going into it. I’ve never played a Wolfenstein game so I had no idea what to expect. All I knew is that the games focus on alternate World War 2 ideas.
TL,DR at the bottom.
Welcome to 2018.
Thank you. If you’ve visited this site in any way, thank you. I appreciate your time.
After some time debating on how exactly to lay out the next few posts, I’ve decided to break them up into a few different categories.
For today, I’ll talk about games I’m excited about that have “hard” release dates, or games that I actually think will release around when publishers have said they will. This week will likely be shorter than usual, but I want to make sure to hit the dates I said I would.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s get started.
Here’s my I spent too much money on games list. You can read this list as games I should not have purchased, at least I should not have purchased right away.
Alright, so here are the games I played this year. I’m going to break it up into a few different posts. First, I’ll cover games I finished and played this year. Next, I’ll cover games I played this year that didn’t come out this year. Then, I’ll cover games I bought this year that I haven’t had time to play yet. (Too many games either way.) And finally, I’ll talk about my wish-list games. (Still too many games.)
I originally intended on creating a list of my favorite games this year, but those tend to coincide with games I beat this year.
I’ve noticed the number of games I complete each year goes down as I get older. I think with one exception from 2014 to 2015. Apparently, I’m down to 5 completed games this year versus 6 last year and 9 before that. I should stop buying games and then just play and finish my backlog. I hate not having completed games when I buy them.
