Been a busy Christmas season so far. I have the week off, so I’ve been working on some stuff around my room.
So far I have most of my 1/6 scale figures on display now. I have two left, which I might open up later today, along with another two expected to be delivered today.
My plan is to limit figure purchases to a few high quality figures in 2019. The problem I have is that I own a lot of cheap figures that add up over time and take up way too much space. After sorting many of these out, I realize that I don’t need that many figures.
The same goes for games. I’m in a transitional phase at the moment where I’m trying to decide a good genre to stick with for 2019 that I can reasonably knock out without getting burned out. I fully intend 2019 to be the year of catching up on my backlog. So far this is plan.
Action: There’s a lot of great games that I want to play in 2019. I’d like to play Spider-Man, God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Horizon Zero Dawn, NieR Automata, and the Yakuza series.
JRPGs: This is the big one. JRPGs take up a lot of time, and I fully intend on having at least one in my playlist along with the other genres. I’d like to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Persona 5, Dragon Quest XI, Tales of Berseria.
Indie: There’s a lot I’d like to check out. They don’t take as long to play, and many I can play portability on the Switch. I’d like to play Celeste, Bastion, Transistor, Inside, Stardew Valley, VA-11 Hall-A, Banner Saga, and a few others.
CRPGs: There are quite a few I’d like to play, but the open-ended nature of many of these games make them take a really long time to play, making them not as much a priority. I’d like to play Pillars of Eternity, Divinity Original Sin 2, Pathfinder Kingmaker, and The Witcher 3.
Strategy: There’s some games I’d like to play, but it’s hard to justify spending 20 hours on a game of Total War or Civilization VI to possibly end up losing…when I can knock out an action game or a few indie games in the same amount of time. Still, I might play a bit of Total War: Warhammer 2, Civilization VI, and XCOM 1 and 2.
Simulators: This is on the bottom of my list. These games are mostly for relaxation when I don’t necessarily want to play a game or watch an anime…but simply drive a truck, fly a plane, or drive a train from point A to point B. Usually these are something to do on an early Saturday morning. Games I’ll be playing are American/Euro Truck Simulator, X-Plane 11, DCS Word, Farming Simulator 19, and Train Sim World.
So with that said, that’s my gaming plan. There’s a few other things I have planned for 2019 (such as catching up with One Piece), but I’d like to get some of the easier stuff out of the way.
