Gaming Goals for the New Year – May 2018 – UPDATE

What is it with these really crappy months? I mean seriously, it’s like month after month after month. Not all of this month was crappy though because I did go to MegaCon, which was awesome. You can check out my various different blogs to read all about it. It’s taking me some time to write about my trip because it was a long trip and I did a bunch of stuff, but I’ve been posting daily, so make sure to check it out. Anyway, on with the goals that, because I’m trying to be positive here, I progressed on this month.

Gaming Goals for 2018

Have a total of 125 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 88
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 88
So the Far Cry 5 platinum is out for now, but I will get it. My plan was to get the God of War platinum trophy this month, but those damn collectibles are just a pain in the ass and I haven’t had much time to play so that went down the drain to. Another month with no platinum trophies. At this rate I’m hoping that when I can finally get platinum trophies it’ll happen all at once as I work on 4-5 different games at a time.

Have a total of 10,000 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 8,3,12
– Ending # of Trophies: 8,348
This has been my worst trophy month ever. I averaged about 7 trophies a week which is just crazy for me. I mean, I know I’m an adult and stuff, but so are a lot of other people who are adults and they can still get over 100 trophies a month. This is making me feel like not much of a trophy hunter as of late. Which is kind of sad in a way because I have enough games that I know, I just know, I can totally hit that 10,000 mark this year if I really put some more effort into it.

Have 175 games completed at 100%

– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 133
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 133
Another month of not finishing any games. It’s not that bad because the only two games that I actually started this month was King Oddball and Detroit: Become Human, so I’m not that upset about it. Maybe a little disappointed, but Detroit: Become Human came out really late in the month and so far it looks like it’s going to be an easy game to complete.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 54.77%
– Ending Completion Rate: 54.75%
Ugh, this number went down by 0.02% and it’s all because of Detroit: Become Human. Keeping this number up is hard to do when games come out late in the month and I start them really late in the month as well. I’m not that disappointed because I know this number will go up once I get more into the game and actually complete it, but it’s a little bit of a bummer right now. This numer won’t hit 75% this year, see me being positive again, but some day it will. Someday.

Start and Complete 10 new games that are not in my backlog

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 1
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 1
I started two new games this month and didn’t finish them, so this number also stayed the same. It’s not that bad as I plan on finishing the games I started this year so this number should go up soon enough.

Play and complete 25 RANDOM games in my backlog

– Starting Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
– Ending Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
Another category that didn’t budge because I didn’t play anything from my backlog. This is getting worse and worse because I have no time for my backlog this year it seems. This is a little upsetting because there are a bunch of games that I’m hoping to play that are in my backlog. I’m hoping that now that TV season is basically over I can catch up on some of these games.

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

– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 3
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 3
I wanted to pre-order Vampyr this month, but I didn’t. I’ll probably buy it before any sale, but I just couldn’t justify pre-ordering it. This isn’t a bad thing because it helped me save just a little bit of money…for now.

So that was it. Another crap month of not getting anything done. Trying to stay with that positive vibe though that everything will turn around next month and I can start banging out these goals as much as possible. So we’re going to end this blog on a happy note and say that June is going to be the best gaming month for me. Ok, so even writing that made me throw up in my mouth just a little, but still trying to stay positive.


Most Anticipated Game for May 2018

May 2018

I probably start all of these blogs like this, but man this year is really flying by as I’m already talking about games coming out in May. I mean, doesn’t it feel like this year just stared and now it’s to its halfway point? I mean that’s great and all because there are some stellar games coming out later in the year and not to mention getting all the hype from E3 which is in June, but seriously time fly’s so it’s time for another blog about what’s coming out in May and what I’ll be playing.

*Just as a side note, my list of May 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.*

Megadimension Neptunia VIIR – PS4
Warhamer 40,000: Inquisitor – PS4
Conan Exiles – PS4

Dragons Crown Pro – PS4
Hitman: Definitive Edition – PS4

SteamWorld Dig 2 – PS4
Space Hulk: Deathwing – PS4
Tennis World Tour – PS4

Dark Souls Remastered – PS4
Detroit: Become Human – PS4
7’scarlet – PS Vita

Owlboy – PS4
Streetfighter 30th Anniversary Collection – PS4
SEGA Genesis Classics – PS4

That’s a decent amount of games coming out for May, but what I’m most excited for and a game that I’ve already pre-ordered and desperately want to play is…Owlboy. Yes I know, it’s shocking right? Did you think it was going to be something else? If you thought it was going to be something else then you’re totally right because I’ve been waiting to play Detroit: Become Human which is my most anticipated game for May. I’m sure Owlboy is going to be great though (maybe.) Anyway, I love that Detroit: Become Human is finally coming out and I’m excited to play it, just not excited on the date which falls right on the weekend that I’m going to MegaCon. Really PlayStation? It just means that I’ll have to wait until Monday to play it instead of Friday, but that’s fine.

Now it’s your turn, what are you looking forward to playing this upcoming month? Anything on this list interests you or will you be sticking to your backlog. Everyone has one and I can completely understand just wanting to stick to it and not play anything new. Let me know down in the comments section and as always, I’ll be back next month letting you know what game I’m anticipating the most for June.
