HELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOO TAY!

How’s everyone doing this fine Lokisday? This fine day, on the 14th day of April in the year 2016? It’s been so long since the year began already... so many games I didn’t play. I checked, and I’m failing at this plan I set out for 2016.

The plan was to play all of these games before their sequels came out (and just to start some/finish those I really wanted to try out):

Nier
Ni no Kuni
Ico
Shadow of Colossus
Dark Cloud
Little King’s Story
Tactics Advance (finish it)
Tactics Advance A-2
Danganronpa 2
Sleeping Dogs

Since then I played and finished Trails of Cold Steel, Trails in the Sky SC, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, and Bastion. That’s... so many games off my 2016 list. Eh heh heh... heh. ..yikes.

But! The good news is, I started Dangan 2. The bad news is that I’m in no frame of mind to actually play it. I really want to know what happens, but I feel as though I’m plodding through with little interest to actually doing the work to get there. I’m not doing my very best with this weird game.

Nier’s supposed to be next for me. But we’ll see how that goes with Uncharted 4 less than a month away from release. 8 1/2 months left to go in the year. I got this!

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • What games have you played and enjoyed so far for 2016?
  • Which ones you absolutely must play this year?
  • What’s the weirdest game/game moment or character you’ve experienced?
  • Let’s talk Backlog Progression (if you got one). How’s that going for you guys?

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain’t nobody got time for all these weird games. It is the Open Forum, after all! Don’t forget that the Discord Chatroom is always around too for continuing, real-time conversations. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout to tell them you love them and appreciate their internet availability: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.

So Many Games. So Little Time.
