Game Plan: June 2020

To the Moon

Halfway through the year. In a lot of ways, it feels like we should be farther along but it also feels like it came out of nowhere. Luckily we’re heading straight towards summer and some beautiful weather.

I’m starting to feel a bit of a gaming rut coming on. I haven’t been too interested in much lately. I think sitting at my home desk for work and play is starting to take its toll. I’m frustrated with Phantasy Star Online 2, my Trove patron is running out which I’m not sure I’ll renew, and I don’t have a strong desire to play much of anything. This happens every so often but usually, it’s in the winter for me for some reason. A few weeks or a month off games and I’ll be back at it with a passion.

A week or two ago I decided I wanted to inline skate again. It’s something I loved to do back when I was growing up but fell out of it around high school. I’ve had this in my head a few times over the years but I never knew where to buy adult skates or if they came in my shoe size. I have big feet, shoe shopping is a nightmare. I figured while the weather’s nice I’d actually buy a pair. They’re on the way now and should be here by the end of the week!

May Goals in Review:

Most of May’s goals got sidetracked by the new Trove update. It’s what I played for most of the month. I enjoyed my time with it but don’t know how much longer I’ll be sticking around in Trove at this point.

Try out TemTem:  I played TemTem a few times in May. The problem is I’m playing with a friend co-op and out leveled him a bit. I’ve been waiting for him to catch up so I didn’t play this as much as I would have liked.

Play More Animal Crossing: Zero animals were crossed this month. I can safely say I’m over it. My wife still plays it every day and I watch her sometimes but I’ve had no desire to play myself.

Finish Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX: Nope didn’t touch it. Hard to say if I’ll ever finish it at this point. The desire wasn’t there this month

Read 1.5 books: This one I did and exceeded! I actually read 2.5 books this month. I finished Imaginary Friend. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s long and the pay off isn’t worth slogging through the last half of the book. My wife recommended Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens which isn’t something I would have picked out on my own. I ended up finishing it in a week and would highly recommend it. My wife and I also book clubbed Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman another book I wouldn’t have picked out but enjoyed immensely.

 

June Goals:

Like I said at the top of the post, I haven’t been in the gaming mood as of late. This will probably be a light month for posts overall. You never know, inspiration could strike again sooner than expected!

Participate in the To The Moon Play-Along: I’m still committed to participating in this event hosted by Naithin at Time to Loot. I think it’s a cool idea and I can definitely play the small time chunks it’s been divided up into.

Commit to playing group games on the weekend: Our weekend gaming sessions are the best way to keep in contact with my close friends across the country so I’ll still be playing and posting about those. We’ve decided to alternate GTFO and Warframe every week so we don’t get bored. GTFO is releasing a new lockdown next week so that will be a nice change of pace even though we didn’t finish the first one.
