This was just a weird month for me as I tried to get adjusted to a new work schedule, fit in a tattoo session, and then fit in some unexpected “charity” work along with a bunch of other crazy stuff that I like to refer to as my life. Anyway, I did get to make some progress on some of my goals that I was slacking on so that’s always good and it makes me a happy gamer. Anyway, here’s an update on how I did this month.
2016 Gaming Goals
Have a total of 80 platinum trophies.
– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 58
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 59
Not a whole lot of progress on this goal, but something is better than nothing. I still really don’t think that 80 is all that impossible even though this year is half gone, I just have to get through some games that are almost finished and I lost interest in. If I can do this then 80 is going to be a breeze.
Have a total of 8,500 trophies.
– Starting # of Trophies: 6,101
– Ending # of Trophies: 6,169
This is one of the impossible goals for this year, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not trying. Each trophy that I earn is one step closer to the 8,500 mark. I’m having a surge of positive energy this month where I’m trying to believe that just about anything is possible, even this goal.
Have 120 games completed at 100%
– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 94
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 93
Oh how I love DLC. Even though I completed a game to 100%, this goal went nowhere because Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight had to add DLC. Thanks Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight! It’s not like I never wanted to play this game again, sigh. Nevertheless, I’m confident that I’ll be completing this goal this year as I really don’t have that many more games to go.
Have an overall completion rating of 75%
– Starting Completion Rate: 51.41%
– Ending Completion Rate: 51.51%
Another impossible goal this year, but at least this number went up this month and not down. I’ve said this a million times, and I know it for sure that if I work on completing games that I’ve already started, then this shouldn’t be a problem. It’s just that sometimes I get bored and want to go to something new and basically give up. I will try harder though and hopefully get this number up to at least 55%? Or even 53%. Let’s say 53% for sure.
Start and get the platinum trophy or 100% completion on 30 backlogged games
– Starting Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 30 That Were Listed): 2
– Ending Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 30 That Were Listed): 2
Yeah, so last month’s plan didn’t work as I looked at my list and basically said Ugh out loud. There was nothing on there that I was absolutely dying to play and the last thing I want is to take my very little gaming time and play something that I don’t even want to play. I’ll see if anything interests me this month, but no promises.
Get the platinum trophy or 100% completion on 20 already started backlogged games.
– Starting Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 20 That Were Listed): 1
– Ending Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 20 That Were Listed): 2
Yay! This number went up by one this month as I completed Mass Effect 2 and got the final DLC trophy for Arrival. This trophy was exactly 5 years and one month in the making, but it was well worth it and it’s nice to be able to finally put this game on my shelf of games that I’ve completed to 100%.
Only pre-order 5 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales.
– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 2
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 2
Damn you E3! I knew this was going to happen, I knew it! There are so many games coming out in the prime gaming months that I’m going to have a very hard time keeping this number at 5. I’m going to try but right now I have my eye on more than 3 games to pre-order. Whether or not I pre-order them is still up in the air. I’ll just have to wait and see, but nothing pre-ordered this month so this number stays where it is. Although…some of the games that I plan on pre-ordering come out next year, so if I pre-order them this year does it still count? I’ll have to think about this one.
That was it for this month. I did make some progress, not much, but it’s something and something is always better than nothing. For the upcoming month, I should return to some type of normalcy since I’m skipping my tattoo session, FemShep will have to wait another month to get finished, and just trying to keep a normal schedule. If things don’t change at work or no one else needs any favors, then I should have a pretty good gaming schedule where I can get a lot of game time in and hopefully accomplish more goals. I’ll let you know how things went next month.
