Gaming Goals for the New Year – February 2019 – Update

This past month was just great when it came to gaming. I had a bunch of weeks where I was able to get over 80 trophies, I racked up a bunch of platinum trophies, and got a bunch of games out of my backlog. I couldn’t have asked for a better month and just think it was February so it was an extremely short month. Enough of that though and let’s get onto my goals for the year.

Gaming Goals for 2019

Have a total of 175 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 102
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 110
That’s right, I was able to get not one, not two but eight platinum trophies this month. This was thanks to all of the POWGI games that I played that had double platinum’s. This was great. I don’t see this happening next month, but it was a great way to start the second month of the year and to progress on my goals getting me a lot closer to that 175 mark.

Have a total of 10,500 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 9,176
– Ending # of Trophies: 9,417
I killed it this month in the trophy department as well since I was able to get well over 100 trophies. Hell I even broke my own record and was able to get 241 trophies. This was just amazing in such a short month and it really helped me progress on my goal. I have no doubt that I’ll hit the 10,000 mark this year. Hitting the extra 500 to make it 10,500 might be a little more complicated, but we’ll see how it goes.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 55.47%
– Ending Completion Rate: 56.06%
This goal is also progressing nicely this year as I was able to go up to 56% which was just great. I feel good about my overall completion rating. Sure 75% is still a ways to go, but it’s not impossible and I feel like it’s something that can be reached eventually.

Start and Complete 20 new games that are not in my backlog

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 0
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 2
Last month I bought Mixups by POWGI and was able to complete both the PS4 Version of the game and the PS Vita version of the game making me start and complete 2 games that were not in my backlog. I call that a win and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to reach my goal this year even though I don’t really plan on buying that many games. You never know though.

Play and Complete 10 games that have already been started from my backlog.

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 1
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 3
This number was bumped up by two this month as I completed both Word Search by POWGI for the PS4 and the PS Vita and I stated those a long time ago last year. This was great as it helped with this number, I just need to go back into my backlog of games that I already started and finish up a few more for this goal to be achieve for the whole year.

Start and Complete 15 games that are in my backlog.

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 0
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 4
Word Sudoku by POWGI and One Word by POWGI were both sitting in my backlog for the PS4 and PS Vita just begging to be played, so I played them this month and was able to finish them as well. That means that I started and finished 4 games that were in my backlog meaning I only need to do this with 11 more games this year. Right now I’m working on LEGO The Incredibles and should be able to add this as completed by next month.

Only pre-order 10 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales.

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 1
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 2
I did really good again this month because I’m sticking to my plan of only pre-ordering one game a month if that month has something in it that I want. This time around I pre-order Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. I can’t wait for it to come out and am pretty excited about it.

And that was my month. It was a pretty great month and although I think that things will slightly slow down this month as I have a lot of non gaming related shit going on, I still think that this past month made up for any mishaps I may suffer from this month. Anyway, I’ll let you know how things turned out for me next month.


Most Anticipated Game for February 2019

February 2019

The first month of the year is basically coming to a close and it’s time to see what’s on the plate for next month as far as new releases. I have to tell you that I planned on buying a bunch of games day one, but things have changed so I am going to be limiting myself to one new game a month, if that month has one new game that I want then I’ll pick it up, if it has two or more games that I want then I’ll be making a choice of only one game, and finally if that month has nothing new that I want then I’ll be playing my backlog. Let’s take a look at February’s releases.

*Just as a side note, my list of February releases is not perfect. There might be some missing, or some dates may change. If you have anything you want to add feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll include it in the list.*

RIOT: Civil Unrest – PS4
Spike Volleyball – PS4
Pro Fishing Simulator – PS4

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 – PS4

Jump Force Ultimate Edition – PS4
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel – PS4

Code: Realize Wintertide Miracles – PS4

Metro Exodus – PS4
Far Cry New Dawn – PS4
Dragons Dawn of New Riders – PS4

Death end re;QUEST – PS4
Steins;Gate Elite – PS4

Anthem – PS4

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame – PS4
Trials Rising – PS4
RPG Maker MV – PS4
NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition – PS4
DiRT Rally 2.0 – PS4

And there you have a it, a decent amount of games that are coming out in February. Some pretty big games are coming out and the rest just feel like filler, but that’s usually how it is. So, there are two games on my radar for February and they are Anthem and Far Cry New Dawn. One is a tired and true series and one is a completely new IP from a developer that I love. The choice was a hard one, but my most anticipated game for February and the one game that I’ll be getting day one is Anthem. To be honest I’m not too sure about this game, but I am a BioWare fangirl and I want to support the company and the new games that they release so there you have it.

Now it’s your turn. What games will you be picking up if any this month? Will it be Anthem? Will it be Far Cry New Dawn? Let me know down in the comments section and I’ll see you back here next month to go over the games that will be coming out in March.
