Gaming So Far: March 2018

March saw a huge uptick in my gaming. Fortnite still took up a large amount of my time, but I rebounded on starting some new games and had a great time with some of them. I also hit 525k Gamerscore, so I guess that still isn't slowing down haha.

I bought and played these games that were released in March:
  • Far Cry 5 (XB1)
  • Tesla Vs Lovecraft (XB1)
  • A Way Out (XB1)

I bought and did not play these games released in March:
  • North (XB1)
  • ACA NEOGEO Aero Fighters 3 (XB1)

I missed these games that I'd like to play released in March:
  • Burnout Remastered (XB1)
  • Assassin's Creed: Rogue Remastered (XB1)
  • Sea of Thieves (XB1)
  • MLB The Show 18 (PS4)
  • Kirby Star Alliance (NS)
  • Ni No Kuni II (PS4)

I started and played through the following games that were in my backlog:
  • Uncharted: Lost Legacy (PS4)
  • Rime (XB1)
  • Super Lucky's Tale (XB1)
  • Deadlight: Director's Cut (XB1)
  • The Bug Butcher (XB1)
  • Rememoried (XB1)
  • Anode (XB1)
  • 8-Bit Adventure Anthology (Volume One) (XB1)

Also continued playing/finished:
  • Fortnite (XB1)
  • Gears of War 4 (XB1)
  • NHL 18 (XB1)
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (Endurance Mode) (XB1)

Overall a good month of gaming. My friends slowed down on Fortnite, so I have as well. I jumped into my backlog headfirst, which hopefully can continue inbetween finishing Far Cry 5 and starting God of War! 

My three biggest takeaways were:
  1. I was really motivated to play new games as they came out. Some of the launch issues with Sea of Thieves kept me away for the time being, but I did play all three releases I bought  immediately. That's been a huge struggle or mine, so was a nice change.
  2. It's amazing what playing the right game at the right time can do. Rime was special.
  3. A 50/50 would be that I attacked my backlog pretty well and hammered out a few of the games that had been nagging at me, but also started a couple that I stopped playing for no real reason. I have a huge issue with not finishing the things I start, and it actually caused me some annoying stress. This is why my completion percentage for achievement has always bothered me so much. There are some games that I can never truly decide if I like them or not, and finishing them becomes a priority anyways, instead of valuing my time. I should be putting that effort into things I enjoy far more often.
Again, I'll do little mini reviews of everything I played in a separate post, as this is more for noting my gaming habits.
